The St George Hotel is a beautiful grade II listed Town House with 19 bedrooms (en suite bathrooms and WIFI) in London's West End -a short walk to Oxford St. shopping and near Paddington's Heathrow Express. A traditional "bed and breakfast," we offer delicious food in our Breakfast Room. The Conservatory Lounge is perfect for meetings or a coffee break. With the service of a 4 star hotel, we were recently awarded the sparkling Diamond award for housekeeping by the RAC and runner up of London B&B Of The Year, awarded by the AA. This is a gem on the famous Gloucester Place.

Neighborhood
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.

I booked this for it's location near to the BBC centre. It looks shabby from the outside and shabby inside. I booked a Superior Room and it was anything but. Shabby, tired, mostly clean but stains on toilet seat and in bath. No aircon as ALL out of service due to construction work. This was NOT clearly stated anywhere and I wouldn't have booked this time of year if I'd knows. They provided a fan but it really wasn't good. The location was perfect but I wouldn't book this again unless it was considerably reduced. Really, really sad, tired and shabby.

The St George hotel is now closed, thank you to all the customers who stayed here over the years. Thank you to all the staff who worked here over the years. At its best it was rated number two in London, quite an achievement for a central London hotel.. The site will now become a corporate hotel...

I've known that London loves to misrepresent herself about the properties for rent. Earl's Court area apartments which are really hostels, B&B's that are really 1 level above a hostel or 2 and 3 star properties that are really 1 or 1.5. The St George Hotel is one of those places that, much like people, fit the term good from far, far from good. Approaching the property, in an apartment block that seems to have other hotels in them as well, had promise. Nice entrance, nice doorway....until I was told that my King Size Room with a City View (as described on the booking website and in my confirmation) was actually tucked away in the BASEMENT. I've attached photos of the room to show my beautiful city view, which probably meant to be ASPECTS of a city - such as an air conditioning unit, stairs, drain pipes, a window of the poor shmuck across from me and also in the basement. My room was nestled next to the linen room and another door over was the common area for breakfast. I was also directly under the reception area/other bedroom and so I heard a lot of traffic and creaking and stomping. The advertised ity View and King Size Bed included: 1) a dingy bathroom that had crusted water and mildew stains on the shower head and faucet; 2) lumpy and springworn twin mattresses shoved together and lashed with a king size fitted sheet to PRETEND to be one king size mattress; 3) the aforementioned city view of the air conditioning unit and drain pipes; 4) a crack running across the ceiling; 5) a crusted over and rusty kettle that I was afraid to use for fear of contracting tetanus and 6) as room safe that was completely loose and unfastened, as well as no locks on the windows. While the concierge was friendly, my request for locks on the windows went unanswered. They were fully booked so were unable to change my room DESPITE not having advised me that my City View was actually a basement room. It was the last leg of my journey and so had no other options or time to go searching through London for another room, PLUS, there was no cancellation afforded. Which to me is a bait and switch. They advertised a room, got you to jump, you cant cancel and then boom, you're snookered. The only good thing was the location but there were tons of other properties in that area that I'm sure would have honored their room advert. I will be requesting a refund but have not heard anything yet from these people..

I use daily medication that needs to be stored in the fridge. I specifically searched on hotels with a fridge in the room for this reason. Just to be on the safe side, I also specified in the Notes section of the form that this is a necessity as I would be using it for medication. Upon arrival I found that the fridge was not working (I didn't think it was turned on at first). When I raised the problem, I was told that it did work just not very well (it was warm). When I asked to be moved to another room with a working fridge I was told that all of the fridges are broken. I explained that I had booked the hotel specifically for this reason because my injections need to be kept cold and had only found the hotel based on searching for hotels with fridges in the rooms. I was told that they couldn't even store it in their kitchen fridge because "it was full" and "it gets locked at night". Staff were rude and insensitive. The words 'I'm sorry" were never said at any point. I had to travel for hours to leave my medication in the fridge of someone I know and then had to travel back there again in the early morning (and was without it overnight). What should have been a nice stay in London turned into horrendous experience which left me in tears. The hotel was very shabby (cracked tiles, stained bath and peeling paintwork) - certainly not a 3 or 4 star. This hotel does not have any working fridges so this should not be advertised. I hate the idea of this happening to anyone else.

We chose this hotel rather than a chain as it had “a fridge in every room”. We specified this on the special requirements section of the booking form as it was required for the storage of essential medication. On arrival there was fridge which was not working. We were met with a shrug and the comment “ some of them don’t work” No apology. While the receptionist suggested the kitchen fridge she was overruled by a senior member of staff. Our visit was made very difficult due to this and caused a lot of stress. The hotel is tired, dated and overpriced. Staff unhelpful. Stay elsewhere.
