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...

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...

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...

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...

Stayed for one night and will never return, even if I was paid to. The room was shabby, bed extremely uncomfortable and does not resemble the photos on their website.

I visited the this hotel in April 16. The room was filthy, the Carpet had burn marks from an Iron and the double bed could only be accessed from one side.

I booked his hotel for convenience as it was situated near where I had a hospital appointment.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
