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...

Dirty, Dusty, Hot, old, embarrassed to have taken my friend their, no one wanted to deal with my complaint and asked me to email management - can't believe the one time I don't check trip advisor - then I look on here - they clearly don't care

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! At first after reading the terrible reviews my heart sank and questioned whether to cancel my booking... well don't believe what you read... on arrival the reception was un-manned, rang the bell several times waited 20/30 mins then we found the...

I stayed here for a couple of nights although not by choice - I was working for a client and it was on their "preferred hotel list" or something...I am hoping that they will remove it as it's really not up to standard and well below what it purports to being on the website. Whilst the location is good, the...

I am so sorry to hear of your unpleasant stay at the hotel. Although I find it rather amusing that you have a lot to say in regards to things you are not certain about. The first room, the room you booked, was a single room on the ground floor, giving easy access to the entrance door, with no stairs...

Horrible!! Horrible!! No room service! Rude Indian reception guy! Absolutely disgusting and dirty! No lift!!! Left without a paper towel roll for 2 days and when asked for it we got half a roll! Extremely disgusting and unsatisfactory! I don't really know how they get away with this!

This has to be the worst place and should be avoided at all costs. We made the mistake of not checking on TripAdvisor before booking. When we arrived there was no one on reception. We waited a considerable time, rang the bell and phoned the hotel. After this time we left our number and went to the nearest cafe. The...

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.
