Physically not a bad hotel, but rooms and public areas not clean. The hotel offered room types which they did not have available. If I booked a Twin room, and have it confirmed, I expect a Twin room. I do not want to have to pay more for the room type that was originally confirmed. On a positive note, the... More

We booked 3 nights in a twin room for my daughter and myself. The twin room was in the basement and had insects flying around. We refused this room and we're offered a double. This was better but was not clean, the sink was cracked in three places, the flies were still present and the bedside light went on and... More

It's never a 4* hotel, it would be lucky to get 1* - dirty, poor decor, tiny rooms, we booked 2 double rooms and after checking in we found our rooms to be on the third floor up very steep stairs (no lift) the rooms were like a sauna, no aircon just a very temperamental fan, had to open windows...

I have stayed in so many hotels and this was by far the worst experience I have ever had. The room stank the room was unbearably warm and I did not get one wink of sleep. I asked to leave the next morning and cancel the rest of my stay and the girl at reception said she was an intern... More

We went up to London for a party, we booked online! Horrible smell in the room, the shower was awful, to small and you had to turn the shower on with the doors open which meant the floor got soaked. No air conditioning. Bathroom bin wasn't emptied from last guest, when it was time for bed, I slept on to... More

Even if you were paid to stay here, refuse!!!! Dirtiest, unfriendliest place we have even been to, my fiancé was eaten alive by fleas from the bed, which they clearly knew about judging by the number of blood spots on the sheets!! never again

This is the worst place I have ever stayed. Our booking was mixed up and they blamed us! The one member of staff is extremely rude. Unless you are a member of the Fawlty Towers Fan Club, stay away from this dreadful place!

No Air conditioning. Oppressively hot. Dated decor. Bad service. Very cramped. Don't stay here, it is the worst "4 star" hotel I've ever been to, plus at 130 pounds a night it wasn't particularly cheap.

I was booked into the Opulence via a work agency and saw the reports on here when too late to cancel. This hotel IS as bad as all the reviews say. What can I say: - filthy room with general bad smell - shower impossible to use without getting floor wet - tiny room, uncomfy bed - no towels, even... More

I recently had the misfortune to stay at the Opulence Central in London last night, to say i was utterly disgusted with the hotel and service received is an complete understatement. The hotel was disgustingly tired and dirty, it was in no way a 3-4 star hotel as advertised. In fact i would be hard pushed to give it a... 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.
