It was a dirty and stinking hotel. Room was not cleaned and ready when I first arrived there. I finally decided to forego my initial deposit and did not check into the hotel. thankfully, I moved to a much better hotel. Opulence is just in name, it is the opposite in actual. Reception Staff was very rude.

I do not even know how it's a hotel as it's not like it. Rooms are not in a good condition, wallpapers are coming off and then there is noise. I haven't had a clue that it could be so loud all night long! There are also other wonderful "features": -no elevator and narrow staircase instead; some could say that... More

Oh dear, this was a mistake. There's no fool like an old fool, and I suspect we were taken in by the name. 'Opulence'? Well, possibly the over-blown but very tired décor - if you discount wallpaper stained and peeling off the walls. And one of the two lamps which didn't work. And no plug in the sink. And a... More

Ididnt bother reading any reviews of this hotel until the morning we were due to turn up and immediately my heart sank but of course we couldn't cancel as it had been left too late. When we arrived the young man on reception was brilliant and we asked him to show the room that we would be staying in which... More

Booked this hotel for s girlie couple of days, the website sold it well with beautiful pictures. Don't be fooled!!! It's vile, everything is tatty, broken falling apart, the bathroom is awful. They provide a kettle and mugs but no tea, coffee or milk. You can't get any food here what so ever and can't get any bottled water or... More

absolute joke for the price over £100+ for an out dated smelly B&B! Not a hotel at all there is a dingy reception at the top of a small set of stairs, then the first room we was placed in was very small and had a horrid smell, the toilet didn't flush either! so my partner went to complain and...

Thank goodness I was only there on an overnight stay! Tourists be aware this place is not reflective of some great accommodation you can get in London! The hotel is exceptionally dated. My room room 6) was a mere 8 flights of steps to reach it. Having booked a double room I was flippantly given a twin room. When asked... More

I booked through lastminute for £130 per night. The reception was manned at all points that I was there by an odd but pleasant man, the room was small but clean. It feels like the hotel is run on a skeleton crew, and clearly needs some work done to freshen it up and make it feel like people care about... More

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

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.
