Music playing until 2.30 am, so loud in our room it was difficult to have a conversation never mind sleep! No breakfast or hot drinks available as they were still clearing up from the party, bathroom was appalling, couldn't use the shower, toilet seat was broken, sink had a 2' gap between basin and pedestal, would never stay here again!

I booked this without looking at the reviews. I'm glad I did because I would have been put off. You pay for what You get. A no frills bed for the night or week. It's in an excellent position for staying in London for whatever reason. A couple of minutes from the tube, Madame Tussauds, Baker Street and a few... More

Grand old terraced house turned into a hotel on a budget. Bathroom must have been fitted by a couple of blind drunk monkeys. On a Friday afternoon. There's no excuse to save £20 on basic stuff like the door jamb (random piece of wood nailed to the side of the door) and then put a nice bathroom floor in.... Location... More

If possible book room 211. It's I the first floor and the wifi for the lobby reaches the room. I'm unsure if there actually is free breakfast there is... More

My best friends and our kids stayed at this hotel 2 weeks ago. We weren't expecting the Ritz or anything, but this place was really, really basic. First of all, no lift/elevator. We were on the 3rd floor and had to lug 50 lb bags up 3 flights of stairs. Second, no AC in an incredibly stuffy room. I know... More

Stayed here for two nights to watch the Army vs Navy rugby match at Twickenham. Very central location just around the corner from Baker Street tube station. Room very cramped for four people so they gave us a second room for no charge. They were sitting empty..probably not the norm. Some confusion over breakfast. Was told it cost three pound... More

Very friendly on reception, but that's where it ends! Shabby (falling apart) toilet hanging off wall, curtain rail hanging off wall. A bath only Peter Dinklage could fit into, massive gap under door, stains all over and a cracked window! And it stunk of cigarette smoke! But for £60 a night just off Baker Street...you get what you pay for!

We spent a week at this hotel. Horrible. Instead of 3 stars one star would be appropriate. The staff does neither greet in the morning nor at night and just walks by without a word, if present at all. When we checked in we had to wait for 15 minutes even though we rang the bell several times and nobody... 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.
