Great value for €£186/ four nights

We stayed end of January. The hotel is close to Marble Arch (5' min walk) and there's a bus stop a few steps down the the Road. Although we only arrived at midnight check-in was no problem at all. We had room 7 on th third floor. The room was nicely decorated, and equipped with a big wardrobe and drawers to store away luggage and stuff. It also had tea making facilities, a hairdryer and a fan (ok, not necessary in January!). Teabags, sugar and fresh milk were available from the reception at request. No Molton Brown toileteries though like promised on the website. We also haven't seen a breakfast room (if there was one) but that was no problem at all since we always had breakfast at the Tyburn's (Wetherspoon chain, very good value and very tasty too. These restaurants are spread over the city and the rest of the UK. Worth checking out!). The bathroom had a tub with a shower which was kind of challenging because the holder in the wall could have been placed a bit more thoughtful. But the thick bathrobe was a nice thing to have. Cleanliness is ok, and our bed was very comfy with nice cushions. Since the house is quite old one cannot really overhear the actions of the neighbours, but after a day of sighseeing we slept like a stone. Staff was always friendly and helpful i.e. with printing out tickets for bus tour or air tickets. So to us Opulence Hotel is great value for the price!

Great location, Good classic decor

This small hotel is very centrally located and compared to its very opulent neighbours, it's great value for money (paid £53/night double in low season February). Bear in mind that the rooms are small and there is no lift access to upper floors. However the classic decor was rather well done and room amenities including a mini-bar, sat tv, desk, good heating were appreciated. My room was at the rear of the building making it very quiet.

Great for shopping but cold turkey for tea lovers

Paid £52 for double room which is a steal as on other sites its more £150 mark. Location is brill for shopping,10 min walk to oxford street. But room was too hot,no teabags,milk water etc,had to ask for some,& there is only one member of staff on at a time,room decor was lovely,think downton abbey. Overall at that price it was great,id stay again,but bear in mind the heat and take your own tea and coffee.

Not a 4 star

The staff were friendly and helpful, carried my bag up to the fourth floor and also quickly brought me an iron. I was in room 2 , the room bed bedding and bath were clean(except for the pillow) and it was quiet. The hotel however is misrepresenting itself as a 4 star . The decor in the communal areas is clean but shabby and mismatched and my room was also the same, it is a shame as in a great location. I would not stay again even though I felt the staff tried their best it was not good value and I think this site should stop advertising as a 4 star .

Oppulance by name but not by nature,

Oppulance by name but not by nature, whilst the location is good, I was tarratced here by the apparent discount of a single to £65/£75 a night but there are better and more modern hotels available for taht rate on [this website]. The room was very small and narrow and the bed uncomfortable, the oppulance bit was I guess the redd velvety curtains hanging over the room. Nothing bad to report at all and nice shower gel and clean loos and shower...just dont reckon it was a £65 to £75 hotel more a £50 hotel

The hotel was situated alright

The hotel was situated alright and easy to find. For the price of 75 €ur/night it was alright, but nothing more, It was not a 4 star Hotel more close to a budget place to spend one night. The rooms had an old facion style, bathroom not so nice. It was not what I had expect.

Not very impressed. Double room

Not very impressed. Double room was very small. Shower was very very small. Shower didn't drain so had to keep shower very short or risk flooding! Am still waiting for my receipt 3 days later which I was told would be emailed to me in 10 mins because they had trouble printing it. Not at all what I would call a 'boutique' hotel as described.
