I understand that hotels go through renovation - however, for my very recent stay, the front door had no lock, the door from reception to the hallway had been removed (so very noisy in my room), and when I arrived back at the hotel at 11pm, there was no hot water. My room was also very cold - the radiator... More

We flew into Heathrow and took the express shuttle train into London. The hotel was a short block and a half walk from the subway station...The room was a bit small but the place was immaculate, the bed was comfy. I stayed for three nights, getting around town easily due to the close proximity to the tube or being able... More

It was pretty good location, so we were happy that we have everything close to our hotel. The hotel is nice and clean but in the winter when we were there it was cold inside and we cant sleep. There is a really bad heating. I think in the warmer days it could be everything perfect. Breakfast was good for... More

The Hotel location is very good and the staff is very helpful. The room was very cozy and perfect if you just want a place to rest. Would definitely pick this hotel to stay next time I will be in London. You gotta keep your expectation on the level of the price, it is very basic, but clean and in... More

My wife and I stay in London hotels frequently and so know what to expect. Found this hotel, using website "Trivago". After reading their description of it, we booked it. First, the "negative" comments:- The hotel`s own website is rather misleading & needs updating. It says the hotel has a restaurant, which it does not. The decor of rooms &... More

It was our first time in London. The Somerset Hotel was ideally located to Baker St and marlybone tube stations. Room was good size for 2 1/2 rating, bath room small but adequate. Rooms clean. Staff very friendly . Good continental breakfast daily. Thoroughly recommend this property . Restaurants close

Friendly and supporting staff. Nice breakfast and round the clock free access to coffee, tea, cappuccino etc. as well as the free wifi at the reception area. Special thanks to the management for helping me after a delayed flight which required re-adjustments. They have accommodated me without extra charge.

The total lack of security at this hotel was worrying - had I been alone, I would NOT have bothered staying - unlocked front door to the hotel - unmanned reception- our room was on the ground floor with worksman's ladder leaning up against our windows - internally pane of glass missing from one of the large windows - no...

The hotel was simply a room to sleep in, that's all. My family and I stayed out as long as possible to avoid coming back as we found the room had a funny smell. The bathroom was almost unbearable due to this stench, the toilet was simply disgusting. Continental breakfast included stale cereal, tinned fruit, yoghurt which was simply in... More

I woke up with over 30 bed bug bites all over my arms and neck. Would stay away at all costs! Location is not bad. The single room was really small. Bathroom was a bit scary & the shower didn't drain properly. Free wifi in the lobby.

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.
