The room is like a cupboard. It's noisy and too hot. The traffic roars by outside. The walls are paper thin and my neighbour left the TV on all night. My colleague has to share a toilet with 3 other rooms; happily, I have my own bathroom, if only I could squeeze into it. The place is grubby and unpleasant.... More

The location of the hotel is perfect, within walking distance of Oxford Street and Baker Street, and the tube stations! I stayed in a double room which was perfect, it actually sheltered me in from all the noise outside so I slept like a baby! The room was tidy, clean and welcoming. The staff were also very helpful, they directed... More

I have stayed here twice, and have been very happy. For its location, the prices are about as cheap as you will get in central London. I find it clean and tidy. Yes, rooms are small, but you're not living there are you! The staff are friendly and I will certainly go back there again.

The hotel location is excellent for both work and social purposes in Central London, staff are always friendly and have time for a chat plus willing to try and accommodate your needs as best they can. The main benefit of the hotel is price, so those looking for something simple and adequate it is well worth trying, I recommend it.

My sister and I checked into this hotel on 8th Feb. We got room 225 and from the minute we walked in to the hotel, we realised we had made a mistake. Our room looked so run down. The single bed was so narrow, that it was designed for a 6 year old child..not an adult. It is winter and... More

Very basic room but has what you need. Unfortunately our radiator wasn't working so it was cold in the night... No spare pillows or blankets. Single beds are very narrow. Shower/ bathroom extremely small and in need of major re fit. Shower will get you clean but it's a bit of a wait for hot water and water pressure is... More

Been here 5 times and they have never let me down yet. For its location - Just 5 minutes walk from Oxford St - It is very affordable (Though check on prices as they do seem to change). Very clean with good staff day and night. Basement rooms are the cheapest, and can get very warm in the summer, but... More

we were moved here after our booked room at a nearby hotel had apparently been trashed the night before our arrival. If we had read the reviews we would never have booked here, but were pleasantly surprised. It looked newly decorated and the location is 5 minutes from Baker Street tube and a 10/15 minute walk from Oxford Street. Our... More

Awful hotel. Treated very badly by staff. They were very rude and unhelpful when answering my questions. Horrible dirty rooms. Horrible limited range of foods. Cold water in the shower and sink. Very noisy. Uncomfortable beds. Never go there.

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.
