The hotel looks ok from the pictures but they are most flattering. The rooms I saw (3) were all of the same standard. Poor or awful. The bedding was dirty and the curtains the same. The worst was the bathroom. Dirty and in a cupboard. One member of staff was charming and apologetic and another disinterested listening to his music...

This is not a hotel, it would barely qualify as a hostel! The staff is rude and unhelpful and the manager will tell you off for interrupting you and then not let you finish. As for the room I have seen cupboards which are bigger and in better condition Don't be fooled by the location and the cost.

Stayed here for 1 night as a last minute business trip. Staff on arrival were nice and polite and helpful. Room itself was old fashioned and a little 'creepy' but clean. Wouldn't be my first choice of hotel to stay but wouldn't be my last.

I booked this hotel via Expedia on the 8th Oct for that day but then shortly received a call from the hotel informing me that they had double booked and could not provide a room. So I was left with no choice but to booked another hotel but this time through Booking.com. I got a call late on the 8th...

Stayed here the night before a hospital appointment and it is genuinely the worst hotel room I've ever been in. Makes travelodge look like the Dorchester. Smelly, dirty, noisy, cramped, rude staff, need I go on?! My advice don't even consider staying here is disgusting!

You can't expect much for this price in such a great location, but there are no excuses for such filth. The lowlight was a delightful rat trap under the bed. The one positive thing to note was the very hardworking lady who served us 'continental' breakfast (i.e. toast and instant coffee).

First of all, I have to say the staff are all very nice and kind. I believe they had done their best. However, the infrastructure of the hotel is really terrible. The is a fault of an old building. This can't be called as a hotel. It's even worse than a hostel. The rooms is really small and the shower...

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....

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...

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods 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.
