Took some American friends for their first trip to London for 3 nights. Fantastic location in close proximity to Marble Arch, Hyde Park, Buck Palace, and all the other attractions. We had a standard room and our friends upgraded. Their room was a bit bigger with a 4 poster bed. Ours was on the top floor, comfortable and well appointed.... More

I had one personal night during a business trip in London. I chose the Leonard based on the location and price. I was not disappointed. My single room was very well appointed and clean. The check in service was on par with a hotel costing three times the price. Breakfast was good. I will definitely return.

I got moved here when the hotel I was in told me my room was not serviceable. Had no idea what to expect. Extremely pleasantly surprised. On arrival staff very helpful, courteous and speedy. Check-in and then given guided tour of my suite. Rooms very sumptuous. I am only sorry I was not staying for more than one night. Staff... More

I was due to stay at the usual hotel my company booked me into but due to a "room servicing problem" I was informed I was being moved. After a taxi ride I arrived at the Leonard and was greeted by the duty manager who apologised for my having to be moved (it was around 7.30pm) and he arranged for... More

I went for a weekend trip before Christmas and chose the Leonard mainly for the cosy sitting room, complete with open fire place - it looked like on of those places that would go all out, decorating for Christmas. It did not disappoint! My best memory from the trip is probably spending one evening reading in the giant couch in... More

Clean, lovely room -more than we expected as it was a suite with 2 rooms, a huge lounge with some beds and sofa/table/tea etc and the staff were really helpful. The bar was not that well stocked at 1 am but probably just as well. Would stay again-great location and good value for money

I picked this hotel because of its proximity to my training location and was pleasantly surprised to discover that it is actually a very nice residential area. In particular, New Quebec and Seymour streets had some lovely restaurants and shops. The hotel itself is nice. My room was small (it’s London after all) but very comfortable. Check in and check...

We had wonderful service for our Royal Afternoon Tea on Monday at the Leonard Hotel. The food was delicious and copious and the scones so fresh they were still hot when they arrived at our table! The strawberry jab was home made and the tea flowed! There were not many bookings in the afternoon and we were left to chat... More

Our family recently stayed in February and the staff couldn't do enough to help. They were polite and friendly and nothing was ever too much for them. The location is great especially for shopping and it was never more than a mile from most landmarks. Being so close to Hyde Park was also a bonus being able to walk through... More

Second time to stay at this hotel, which inside and out presents authentic Georgian elegance. If you like the style of a bygone age, rather than the anonymous modern Holiday Inn style, then this is for you. Both times have found the staff very friendly, smiley and accommodating, rather than the usual resentful London style. Had a smaller suite than... 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.
