Very satisfied with my recent four night stay at this hotel. I always start my stay in Marylebone when visiting London, but usually at the Mandeville. After reading the glowing reviews I decided to give the Zetter a try and I'm really pleased I did. First off, great location - it's the reason why I stay in Marylebone. Secondly it's... More

Gorgeous opulent rooms. Treated my fiancee to an overnight stay here with dinner. Very happy. Service was impeccable. The restaurant and bar had a great vibe and delicious cocktails. The rooms were plush but eclectic. Felt like something out of a Parisian boudoir.

I know the Zetter chain because I have used the hotel (in Clerkenwell) often. The town house in Marylebone was close to where I had to be for a couple of days and it turned our to be so much more than a convenient place to stay. Really well appointed rooms, great staff, and small but functional and cosy reception... More

4th time I'd been, this time with my 19 and 20 year old daughters to treat them (their twin room was very generous). You step off the street through a single door like accessing professional chambers into a room styled like a boudoir in the John Soane Museum. It's welcoming in the day, and at night fills up as a...

I travel constantly for work and leisure and have stayed in all kinds of hotels, but after this three night stay in London, the Zetter has become one of my favorite hotels in the world.

This is a lovely and intimate setting. Rooms are beautifully appointed. Staff is welcoming and accommodating. But please note this is not a hotel in the typical sense. There is no concierge or other such amenities.

I love the ambience of this boutique hotel. The bedrooms are stylish, well equipped and impeccably clean. The cocktails in Seymour's Parlour are delicious (do try Le Sphinx) and nibbles are tasty and beautifully presented. The location is great for meandering through Marylebone village enjoying some leisurely shopping or for a quick hop to the retail Mecca that is Selfridges.... More

We went for 2 nights in August for our wedding anniversary. A lovely hotel with friendly helpful, well trained team. The rooms were typical boutique, naughty confusing OS maps in the bathroom - Any visitor not from UK will get lost outside London if they try to use as a guide! Will return again.

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Zetter Townhouse Marylebone is the second addition to The Zetter Group's Townhouse family. The 24-bedroom Georgian townhouse and cocktail lounge enjoys an enviable location on Seymour Street in fashionable Marylebone close to shopping emporium Selfridges. Feeling more like the private home of an eccentric relative than a conventional hotel, the property includes a spectacular rooftop apartment with a bath on the roof terrace. The cocktail bar is one of the best in London (5* TimeOut) and serves light bites and tasty supper bowls alongside the cocktails. ... more   less
