Marble Arch Inn
Ranked #290 of 572 London B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We stayed at the Marble Arch Inn for 5 nights and I have to say it was basic, yes the shower is small and the rooms are small but hey ho there is a bed (no bed bugs like other reports) but most importantly, it was very clean. Everyday there was maid service and clean towels every day (apart from weekends) 24 hour reception with very helpful staff. The only problems I would say was the safety deposit boxes (free of charge) were in the reception area, I would rater have them in the rooms. The last problem encountered was the noise of other guests, as this is a old building there are quite a few creaky floor boards. If you are a light sleeper I would recommend earplugs. Other than that I would recommend this hotel to everyone ... great location and great value for money!

Many thanks for you kind words and we are happy to note that you enjoyed your stay.
As far as the room service is concerned, our maids are there all seven days and clean towels are
provided everyday. If the customers are in the room during the weekend and do not want
room service, then we leave clean towels outside the room.

Our experience is that safety deposit boxes are much more secure in the reception area as it is manned 24 hrs and hence the reason for keeping them there.

Thank you once again and we look forward to seeing you soon.

A well located hotel with just a short walk to the tube. Room was comfortable and has tea/coffee facilities. Staff were pleasant throughout. I had a room with shared shower and the shower was a tad tight with no room to change/dry properly. Would stay again

The rooms are tiny... not small. You have to dry out of the bathroom (bathcloset ?) 90£ for a 2.5m x 4 room incl the bathroom can't be a good deal.
No AC, poor window treatment, towels on the bed... just because there's no room to hang them in the bathroom !
I wouldn't book a room in that hotel myself... too bad I let somebody else do it.

We are sorry to read about your experience at the Hotel. We will take your views into account.
However in the Victorian Buildings which are grade 2 Listed , there is not much that you can do to increase the space.

We have tried hard to maintain a decent balance between space and facilities that our customers want. As you can see from the other reviews, a majority of our customers are happy with the hotel.

We take pride in offering a clean, comfortable, friendly and reasonably priced accommodation in an excellent location.

Marble Arch Inn has a great location - 3 minutes walk from underground, Hyde Park and Oxford Street. Rooms tiny but clean, no elevator, bathrooms really small.
Good for sleeping and weekend stay. Pubs and restaurants in neighbourghood.

Being well located at Marble Arch is a big plus for this B&B. The room was small, and en-suite toilet was less than comfortable, but if you are not very large you'd probably be able to fit in. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are plenty of middle eastern eateries nearby and shopping is great at Oxford Street. Hyde park is just a stone's throw away. For the price we paid, I guess we cannot complain about the absence of pampering.

Thank you for your comments. It is very difficult to provide a good balance between space and facilities in a Victorian buildings like ours.
We have tried our best and most of our customers are very happy about it, with all the other
benefits covered in other reviews.
