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 !! The room itself... More

Bracket for shower busted. Toilet did not work, Had to pay extra £2 for a hand towel (not bath towel). No glasses for drink. No... 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

I booked this the night before our visit, myself, my husband and our 2 children. It's very basic, more of a B&B. The ensuite was badly laid out and meant you had to sit on the toilet sideways to avoid hitting your knees on the shower! However relatively clean. The fridge wasn't plugged in and to do so would mean... More

We booked a double room here. It was tiny, extremely hot and the window faced the window of what appeared to be the living room of a house opposite about ten feet away, so very little privacy whenever the window was open. The room could really have done with something more than a grimy desk fan to cool it down... More

We spent two nights in this tiny bedroom where you couldn't barely walk around the bed, the room was hot, with a tiny desk fan. The bed was hard not to mention sounding like it was going to break. The curtains were not fixed properly so the residents from the building next door could see in. For a B&B we... 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.
