I've just returned from a very enjoyable family holiday in London were we stayed at the Amber Residence. I have to say that I was quite happy with our choice of accommodation. Even though we were a party of four (2 adults & 2 children) the room we had was more than satisfactory. The rooms were spotlessly clean, beds comfortable,... More

Upon arriving at our room the key broke off in the lock. The caretaker could not guarantee when or if it could be fixed. We had to keep checking back in. The caretaker was apathetic, unprofessional and unreliable. The management was unresponsive.

We were in London 3 days in September 2013. We enjoyed our stay in this residence. The location is great. A few steps from the metro and shopping streets. A few meters from the bus stop Easybus to Stansted Airport. Furnishings are modest but very clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We will return in the spring.

Although Amber is not a hotel as such you feel more comfortable and have more amenities at your fingertips than a hotel. All rooms come with a kitchenette and separate bathroom, carpeted floors, tv, and of course a comfortable bed, small table and chairs and large closet. The location is absolutely central London - few minutes walk to the famous... More

We booked at amber residence hotel from june 27 till july 4, 2013. For under than 100 pounds a night, you get a clean, renovated room with kitchenette, couple of meters away from oxford street, major tube/subway stations, bus stations, and Tesco (Supermarket). Don't get scared with the pics they have online, the rooms are much much better. The website... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
