We've just returned from a weekend stay in London, staying at this hotel. We will most definitely be going back again!
The purpose of our trip was to see a show; and to take in some of the sights. Whilst we have visited London on numerous occasions, we knew the area relatively well. The hotel is situated directly opposite the Marble Arch Thistle hotel; which is just behind Next and New Look on Oxford Street. The hotel is less than a 5 min walk from Marble Arch station.
The Room: perfectly proportioned for us. However, could have had a little more room for both of the cases. But other than this, perfect. We had a shower and a bath which was a bonus. The bathrooms are very sleek and very clean with good lighting. The room also has a safe (which does reset itself - so be aware of this; overnight the door may come open!). The rooms are keyless entry and you hold a card against a panel on the outside of your door. The windows are single glaze and our room looked out the back of the hotel onto Seymour St and onto Locanda Locatelli restuarant and Portland Square; it could get noisy at times, but this is certainly to be expected when you are staying in the centre of the city. However, you are directly above Marlybone Police Station (yet did not hear a single police siren throughout our stay).
The Hotel: Is clean, and elegant. I would make you aware that if you have accessiblility needs; then do check these with the hotel upon booking, for example we were on the second floor and whilst the lift took us to the second floor, there were two small flights of stairs to our room, whilst not an issue for us, it is worth a mention for others. Initially we were offered a room downstairs, which we declined, but it was no problem for the staff to arrange another room for us. The hotel has a bar inside, and is standard pricing to be expected in a city centre hotel of this standard. The surroundings like the rest of the hotel is comfortable and elegant. If you so wish Sky News is on but muted!
All in all, perfect for our stay and well situated for everything. We do hope to go back soon.
