Very basic room but has what you need. Unfortunately our radiator wasn't working so it was cold in the night... No spare pillows or blankets. Single beds are very narrow. Shower/ bathroom extremely small and in need of major re fit. Shower will get you clean but it's a bit of a wait for hot water and water pressure is... More

Been here 5 times and they have never let me down yet. For its location - Just 5 minutes walk from Oxford St - It is very affordable (Though check on prices as they do seem to change). Very clean with good staff day and night. Basement rooms are the cheapest, and can get very warm in the summer, but... More

we were moved here after our booked room at a nearby hotel had apparently been trashed the night before our arrival. If we had read the reviews we would never have booked here, but were pleasantly surprised. It looked newly decorated and the location is 5 minutes from Baker Street tube and a 10/15 minute walk from Oxford Street. Our... More

Awful hotel. Treated very badly by staff. They were very rude and unhelpful when answering my questions. Horrible dirty rooms. Horrible limited range of foods. Cold water in the shower and sink. Very noisy. Uncomfortable beds. Never go there.

The guy on reception looked like he was working on a construction site. All the staff wore horrible jeans and T shirts. Great start you didn't know who you were talking to. Was given a choice of 2 rooms but I won’t even talk about the first room as you couldn’t even open the lock to get in there properly.... More

A quick thank you to David who reserved my room after having trouble with one of the big online late booking companies. The hotel is a short walk to underground station. The room I was in small and cramped as was the shower but I consider this as exceptable because I used the room for one night only and even... More

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

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.
