6/10 Good

The hotel consists of 3 bedrooms on the 3rd floor of a bar, which you access through steep stairs, no lift.(weird smell on the staircase) Bedroom size was ok, so was the bathroom (sink is ridiculously small) no space to leave your toiletries. Also no hairdryer. There's an exit sign over the door of the room that irradiates a green light that's very annoying (had to cover it with a towel so I could sleep) Situated on lovely portobello Rd, lots of restaurants to go to, but very noisy at night. The hotel has no front desk or concierge so there's no one to help you out. Staff working in the pub were kind but have no clue how to help passengers from the hotel. It's ok if you think of it more as an hostel than a hotel.

Not worth it.
We knew this was a small place that is primarily a pub, however the room I selected (corner, being larger) was not honored and I had the impression the rooms were on the 2nd floor not 3rd. 2 nasty, tall flights of stairs. No lift! There is one in the building but its being used as a storage closet. Room 1 was tiny. Bathroom sink was hardly useful as it was so small and the toilet seat grabs your thigh and I have a huge bruise because of it. One light fixture was out in the bathroom. The tiles on the bathroom floor were pretty but not very clean. Oh, and the walls are VERY thin!! Based on this interaction we will never try any of these small, unique hotels ever again. This property does not answer their messages here either.
