I've travelled all around the world and got better rooms in Tokyo and Guangzhou for less money. I will never come back to this dive. Worst hotel room ever, and the free WiFi doesn't work at all. Tried on 3 different devices. Thankfully is just for one night!!

My husband and I booked at the last minute. It was a bank holiday weekend and we weren't expecting to get much change out of £150, so were pleasantly surprised to find this hotel for £99.00 with Breakfast. We read some of the reviews and they were not exciting so we weren't expecting much however, we were pleasantly surprised. Exterior... More

Booked a weekend break to be told 3 hrs before (on the train down) that the room had a plumbing fault and there was no other availability. Turns out they took a booking at a higher price. Absolutely no integrity at all

Pleasantly surprised with an upgrade to the studio - perfect for our 1 week stay. Very roomy, hot water, clean, fridge and tea / coffee. Only complaint were two girls arguing horribly in the room next door every night - issue raised with staff who knocked at their door every night (several times per night) and offered to move them...

Our room was a double and we couldn't even walk around the bed. If you are a larger person or elderly you would have had difficulty in the room. We had no proper warm bedding, it is February - we had a sheet and a throw that is used on a settee - this was of no weight or warmth... More

As my flight was landing at midnight in stansted, I would only be able to arrive to the hotel around 1.45am - só at the time of booking (3 days... More

We booked this hotel in Early December this month for a group of us to stay. When we arrive they had messed the booking up and double booked us, which meant that we had to stay in two singles instead of a twin, not a problem on it's own, but then we're told that the wc was not in the... More

I've read reviews describing the London Continental as the worst hotel they've ever stayed at. I can only speak for my own experience but I'd suggest there are many worse hotels you could end up in. There's no doubt it is pretty basic. But if all you want a cheap place to lay your head in central London then this... More

This hotel has an ideal location tube within short walking distance , shops , Madame tussuads. The room was very hot !! We were told heating would be turned off when we arrived but would take sometime but it never was , door which opened into tiny court yard was filled with ladders and cigarette butts !!

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
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.
