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

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

Even though very cheap I cannot recommend anyone to stay here. The hotel is dirty, it smells, There was fungus on the walls in both the room and the bathroom. Two in our party got ill due to the same. We stayed in separate rooms and both rooms had the same problem.

I required a cheap, central hotel for 1 night before a meeting in Canary Wharf. I booked this hotel (even though I'd read the previous reviews) based on location and price. It was £8 (inc tip) by taxi from Euston Station and 5 minutes walk from Baker Street Tube Station (direct line to Canary Wharf) The room was small, for... 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.
