The staff were lovely. The bed was clean and comfortable and the water was hot. The decor was too fussy for my liking and the whole place was in need of a refurb, The stairway and corridors felt scruffy. The room felt dusty and the curtains felt close to falling down. The bedside light didn't work and I had to...

As people have said before, the location is excellent and the staff are really friendly and will go out of their way to help. As people have said before, this place is somewhat tired. The electrics are in need of a refurb, actually the place needs a minor refresh and a deep clean. The plug in my room was broken,...

Stayed there for 3 nights on my own in a senior suite. Although room was not perfect, I loved the atmosphere. Best bed I have slept in in years of coming to London, none of the marshmallow type that gives you instant backache. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Ok, the suites are a little expensive, but location is great...

I stayed at Opulence (not the adjective) overnight before the London Marathon. I needed a place to rest my head and in that respect it delivered. On a side-sloping bed, but hey. The room was booked for 2 people, and thank goodness I was solo. Measuring roughly 10' square, including the bathroom, whose door didn't close, toilet butted-up to boxed-in...

The photos of the hotel do not reflect the reality of what this hotel really looks like. These photos must have been taken at least 10 years ago. It is in desperate need of refurbishment. Our room and the stairs and landing areas are filthy.This was supposed to be a special birthday surprise. The website lists as a 4 star...

Shame, the reviews here are all correct. It's a central hotel at a reasonable price. It's dirty and tired. Needs updating. Awful shower, dreadful plumbing. Dirty paintwork just needs a wash, bed linen terrible. Good location.

Traveling for business I booked this hotel before reading the reviews- not something I usually do- big mistake. Often you find that people are prone to exaggeration when they complain on such sites, but in the case of the Opulence that certainly was not the case. I am at a loss as to how this hotel could possibly be rated...

We stayed for one night, the staff were very friendly and helpful, we were able to leave our heavy bags at reception ages before we were due to check in (they were subsequently placed in our room which was a nice touch). Up close everything looks a bit tired, and could do with a bit of tlc, e.g. the bedding...

So at first, booked hotel then read trip advisor stupidly, but also you can't always believe what you read!

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.
