For £50 a night in central London the Opulence Hotel is very cheap (I booked it months in advance via lastminute.com) but at £100+ there are much better places to stay in central London. The reception was always unmanned, the decor is much in need of redecorating, and most of the furniture in the room was broken, not to mention... More

Do not believe the offer of breakfast, there is none. Neither is there and tea, coffee etc, just the kettle and two cups. Bed linen grotty, no plug in sink so washing is difficult. No security on entrance doors, rooms left open and unattended during the day when they are supposed to be cleaning them. I came back mid afternoon... More

Myself and my partner stayed here for a weekend. After looking at all the reviews we were expecting the worst but were pleasantly surprised. I loved the look of the hotel it had an historic feel to it. The staff were very helpful. Our room was quite small but it didn't bother us fair enough there wasn't any teabags etc... More

It's perfectly situated just of Oxford street however it's awful. :/ Very dirty basically falling apart. I can't understand it's an amazing building and with a small investment it would be fabulous. Rooms really dirty don't look under the bed :O Toilets dirty. Even the tea and coffee facilities were just a kettle that broke after a day no tea/coffee/milk/spoon/sugar... More

Stayed here last night with my other half meeting friends in London for the night, the location is perfect, 5 minute walk from Baker street station and seeing the location of the hotel I think it was well worth every penny. The entrance was nice, the staff were polite and helpful, the decor in the hallways could do with abit... More

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.
