Main House, named after owner Caroline Main, discreetly holds four suites in fashionable Notting Hill, each one occupying an entire floor of the upmarket Victorian townhouse. Though there is no signage; rather, a brass doorknocker in the shape of a lion's head denotes the entrance to the brick-walled building built in the 1820s. Inside, rooms are meant to be evocative of a classic British bed-and-breakfast, each one furnished by Main with antiques purchased from the neighboring Portobello Road market. Access to a separate health club (two minutes away) is available, and private cellular phones are placed in rooms as opposed to landlines to reduce costs for guests.

Room to Book:

Though each suite is unique in its own way, the one on the first floor is slightly bigger than the rest and is the only one with a chaise lounge.

Insider Tip:

Main, a former nightclub owner and DJ, added animal skin rugs to each suite found during her explorations in Africa.
