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.

Stayed at this hotel on Saturday night with my friend for a theatre weekend. First of all,the hotel is in an excellent location,about 3 minutes on foot from Baker St tube station. The area is very affluent with beautiful apartments and quirky shops and eateries. And there ends the good points. We arrived at the hotel mid afternoon and from... More

Very simple hotel, has good potential from what I could see in terms of interiors. The walls are very nice and it has that old fashioned look that is interesting. Rooms on the second floor not too bad , if you are family of 4 like we were , we had a nice room , big enough for all of... More

As the price is reasonable and location desirable, I didn't expect too much more. The staff was helpful with tips and the room OK. The breakfast is very modest. Crumbs in the toaster caused a fire alarm in the whole hotel. Good to know that the alarm system worked. Although I wasn't too pleased that the fire doors at the... More

I stayed at this hotel on Saturday night in a single room. After I had booked the room I looked on trip adviser and saw all the adverse comments so I wasn't expecting a very good experience. They say you get what you pay for, well I was pleasantly surprised to find a small, but very clean room that was... More

Booked it as it was closely located to where we wanted to be, hyde park winter wonderland, & due to the fact they had a family room to fit 5 of us in, which is rare & took hours of searching to find! Was all excited...until i read reviews about this hotel after booking. Instead of excitement i felt anxious.... More

Stayed here for a weekend with my family and was thrilled by the end of my stay. Whilst the hotel is pretty basic it has everything that's needed for a stay. clean sheets, comfortable beds and surprisingly quiet for a city hotel. We were in a family room on the 2nd floor. we asked if we could arrange for tea... More

My partner and I stayed overnight at the somerset hotel prior to travelling around the uk. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location is superb just minutes from Baker Street.

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.
