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

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

I was booked in for two nights at the so-called "boutique" Opulence Hotel in London. This is the filthiest place that I have ever had the misfortune to stay in - booked in by HotelClub booking agency. It looked a bit shabby, but hoped the room might be OK. Not great at first sight, but not worth complaining about, as... More

Ok, so we all read a couple and think, can't be THAT bad surely? This hotel is terrible, I've no doubt it was once as opulent as it still claims to be, but that was at least 50 years ago. We arrived to be told our room was not ready due to a laundry issue could we return in an... More

After I booked this hotel through an agency I read the reviews online but I didn’t believe it, I thought people were exaggerating as I have lived in London before and I understand how everything is small and not always clean, so I decided to give a chance, well it ruined my vacation ! Upon arrival the indian male at... More

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

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.
