No lifts! So you lug everything up stairs. The rooms are so tiny and you don't get any basic supplies i.e soap. The water smells when it runs. Tiniest TV ever. The only plus is its near the tube so it's easy to get around. If you can spare an extra few quid it's worth it.

I know when I saw the prices for London that this hotel wouldn't be high end and you get what you pay for, but oh my I got more than I bargained for. The pictures advertising the hotel are a far fetch from what we received. I'm sure there is a room there somewhere that looks like the pictures but... More

I guess someone gets for what have paid for. Stay there only if realy do not have maney for something else. No elevator in the Hotel. The location is just great. Very close to underground and bus stations.

Stayed on the top floor, it's a tough climb and no air con so needed a good wash once we'd hauled the bags up. Unfortunately the bathroom facilities were less than impressive. Bath had no plug so used the shower, had to get on my knees to wash my hair as its set for midgets. Then noticed the orange stained... More

I always like to be fair with my reviews and that is how this review will be. Rather than go on about the state of this hotel, I will just post pictures and let you make your mind up. I did not stay at this hotel, as I could not bring myself to. I booked a room and was given... More

No no no no. This hotel should be shut down completely. Be aware this is a dangerous hotel. The windows where missing and falling out. Everywhere you could look there was mold. This Hotel should be shut down immediately and I can't understand that it is not shut down for health and safety reasons

Nice place, not really cleaned as use to be before. Maybe more attention to service and cleaning will help to have happy customers. Not value for money at all. Front desk handle by temporary staff doesn't help the customer to have proper answer. Something change since one year

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.

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

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.
