Bad experience. Old, dirty, smelly hotel with no AC. We had the room with the windows to the stree and it felt like sleeping in the street. Stay farther away from center and pay less for better conditions. Make use of the excellent subway system to get anywhere in London fast.

For a cheap night in London at the heart of regents park you can not complain. It has a comfortable bed and the room was spacious. Negatives is there is no air com,dated furniture and nothing extra provided.breakfast was very basic toast/cereal/boiled eggs.

The location is what makes this place desirable. Otherwise it wouldn't offer much. To begin, there is no lock on the door to the street. You can see splintered wood where there used to be a lock. Security is not a priority for sure. Only one of the windows in our room opened which was awful because our room had... More

The rooms are small, as are the bathrooms which would not be a problem if there was more thought put into the presentation. The curtains do not fit and the windows are almost rotted through, the secondary glazing does not shut properly so it is noisy. The bathroom had a maserating toilet that made noise all night and when flushed... More

my boyfriend and I arrived in the afternoon, ready to check in, and to be welcomed by a 'receptionist'- this was what I can only describe as teenager, wearing paint covered jeans and a filthy t-shirt. He was texting the whole way through check in, he even asked me to repeat myself because he missed what I had said due... More

I recently stayed here for 4 nights and I am far from happy. It was mine and my partners first holiday together and we wanted to make it as long as possible, we were on a budget and understand prices in London are very steep. Therefore we were very pleased when we came across the Somerset Hotel at such a... More

I think the photos were taken years ago as they are not a reflection on this hotel. Our room was awful. There was a sort of walk in wardrobe thing with no light so you couldn't see a thing. We lived out of a suitcase fir the entire week. You could see through the curtains. Lights had no lampshades. The... More

Pros: Location. Only minutes' walk from train station. Helpful staff The hotel looked like it was undergoing renovations. If so, it shouldn't be opened for business. The room looked half done. The sheets, towel & bathroom were clean. That's about it. Cons: Broken shower curtain rail. Hole in the wall. Window that doesn't close (luckily it's not winter). Room doesn't... More

Great old world hotel where customer service is king. Affordable 3 star in the center of London and super friendly staff, in one of the most expensive cities. Is a can't miss. Would definitely come back, my stay was for 4 nights.

Check in was the only thing that went well. Booked a twin room but was allocated a triple which of course was fine. Room was dirty, dusty with old damaged furniture. Found an awful amount of dust and a damaged telephone socket with loose wires on the floor whilst looking for a plug. Showed the staff who said they knew... 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.
