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

A friend and I chose this hotel as it was really central and on booking.com it was rated as a 4* so thought it must be good. We stayed in August when it was actually over 30 degrees and after climbing to the very top of the building we were shown to an exceptionally small and swelteringly hot room. How... More

We stayed one night here in October, upon arrival the Hotel certainty is impressive and only a couple of minutes walk to London most famous shopping destination Bond Street. We were however really disappointing that the "sumptuous English Breakfast Buffet" as described on the website was not on offer as promised! Also the rooms are considerably more noisy than any...

This hotel has to be the worst hotel that I've ever stayed in. I've been visiting London on a weekly basis for the last six months on business and decided to bring my partner to the city for a break. We picked this hotel as the name suggested 'opulence' and the star rating seemed quite good so I figured it... More

Very disappointed in the hotel, I paid £185 for a double room for my birthday with my girlfriend and it was awful, a strange smell and dated decor and furniture, the bathroom window didn't lock and woken up at 6am by what sounded like a washing machine and hearing other rooms showering and going to the toilet!!! Not value for... More

Availability in London still terrible so I went against my prejudice and booked with lastminute into the privately owned Opulence Hotel, 5 minutes north of Oxford Street. Not cheap (£135 for one) but a convenient location. One of a row of small hotels in a Regency terrace near Portman Square. The outside looked quite pleasant with a potted olive tree.... More

This was one of the worst places I have ever stayed. Tiny, unclean rooms with no air conditioning. Fridge fell to pieces upon opening to see if there were any cold refreshments. I could go on. Not value for money at all.

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.
