Unclean - makes it so uncomfortable. Gross bedding - duvets were really old and stained/discoloured. No mattress protectors. No tea/coffee or kettle even. No breakfast No wifi You get your daily exercise with the amount of stairs you have to climb

About
Hotel description
Somerset Hotel was established during the Georgian Times in 1885, it is a traditional, comfortable and safe hotel ideally located in the heart of Central London. Situated in the leafy and affluent borough of Marylebone, Somerset Hotel is a charming 2 star Bed & Breakfast townhouse hotel. The rooms are medium sized and have all the basic facilities which allow for a comfortable stay for all our guests. Historic surroundings such as Dorset Square, which used to be the original Lord's Cricket Ground, Harley Street and Regent's Park are all but a few minutes away. We are a family run hotel and believe that we offer a great base for tourist and avid city explorers at affordable rates compared to other hotels in the area. The hotel is family and child friendly offering a secure and safe environment. The staff are always welcoming and on hand to help out whenever requested. If you are looking for a cheap city break or a family holiday then we are the place to stay. Furthermore, all 27 en-suite guestrooms at the Somerset Hotel London are nicely decorated to guarantee you a comfortable and pleasant stay, ideal for both the business and leisure travellers.

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

This is not a sofisticated place. It has a simple lobby and desk for checking in. The one member of staff, if he can be found, has a place down stairs and should be amenable to requests.

The rooms literally have a bed/beds and a plain bathroom. Hope you didn't visit this "hotel"
