Got a twin room (double and sofa bed) for a friend and I as we were coming to London to see a couple of shows. This was in the middle of a 35 degree heatwave, this hotel was lovely - there was an ice machine just outside and a fantastic air con system. There was an in-room fridge, safe, large wardrobe and make-up mirror/writing desk plus the staff were lovely. We ordered a room service dinner on the second night which was absolutely wonderful and the complimentary breakfasts were delicious. I have been searching for a hotel like this ever since and so far been unsuccessful, helpfully very close to the tube station (just a short walk uphill from Kilburn Park).

Historical Traveller Reviews of London Marriott Hotel Maida Vale

Great Value and a Satisfying Stay

from A TripAdvisor Member
The rooms were spotless, had great water pressure, attentive staff, easy check in and check out and very well decorated. Location could be a little better, but it's not terrible. Great value for the money. We got this hotel on priceline for $100.00 usd per night and we were extremely satisfied.

Great high quality lower cost London hotel

from SAM585
We stayed at the Marriott Maida Vale for 5 nights in November 2004 and found the hotel excellent.
Our room was large by European standards, and the bathroom more so. The only thing missing is a minibar/fridge, but there is an ice machine in the hall.
We found all the staff very helpful and polite. The buffet breakfast was expensive (£17 pp), but we had it included in our room rate, and found a great choice of hot and cold food. Or, there is a nice cafe up the street. While on first impressions the surrounding neighbourhood does not look too flash, we found some great restaurants close by and had no problem walking around at night including, to and from the tube station.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a high quality less expensive hotel in London.

Good hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We enjoyed our stay at the Maida Vale in August. However, one of the primary reasons we stay there was because it had a pool and we had two children. The pool, which is in an adjacent health club, only allows children to swim until 6 p.m. weekdays and 8 p.m. weekends. There is also a 15-person limit in the pool, which is about 4 feet deep throughout. On several days, our children were disappointed not to be able to swim after a long day of sightseeing.

Otherwise, the hotel is close to the Kilburn Park underground stop on the Bakerloo line. There are several grocery stores nearby, as well as smaller retailers who sell food, candy, beer, etc.

It was a good value for the money.

Great Hotel !

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a great hotel at a great price, I think my rate was £85. Very large rooms for a London hotel. Very clean and extremely quiet. Great beds. Good water pressure and good hot water. Helpful and friendly staff (had to stay longer on short notice and had to change rooms). Large gym attached which i did not have time to use this trip. 5 mins walk to kilburn park tube station on bakerloo line. Take Heathrow express to paddington (£13) and catch cab (approx £7) - couldn't be easier. I would definitely stay here again.

A good Hotel but not Great

from Powell55
The location was nice, but not ideal. But just a brief bus ride from the Marble Arch and all the bus tours. I love feather pillows, and they had plenty of them. They staff was helpful and courteous, and helped us a great deal with cabs, locations, and visitor tips. Oh, by the way, I got this Hotel on Priceline for $75 dollars, that's right, dollars, not Pounds Sterling per night. The cab ride from Heathrow cost about as much as the room. I strongly suggest hiring a private car for 35 pounds or take the Heathrow Express for 16 pounds, and take a brief cab ride (or bus) to the Hotel.

Nice Marriott - good value for the money

from Travelling_Wiz
We spent four nights here in April/May. This was a very nice typical Marriott. A modern hotel so not the "charm" of some of the English Marriotts which were re-births of old hotels - but the hotel had every amenity. The rooms were nice size and the beds comfortable. There was very very extensive fitness center available to hotel guests. The Italian Restaurant and the small casual bar both had excellent food. We found the desk staff and the concierge staff to be helpful and pleasant. The neighborhood immediately around the hotel was fine, although we did not find the area around the underground to be very pleasant (North of the hotel). As long as you stayed south of the hotel, the area was great. I would recommend the buses which run right outside the hotel, rather than going through a less desirable area to get to the underground. We got a very good rate for what we thought was a very nice hotel.

Poor desk clerks, sketchy neighborhood, good restaurant

from FSHphd
Booked through Marriott in the States, our rooms were completely different than specified. I had to go through a ridiculous conversation with the very same clerk who had confirmed my rooms, not 14 hours before -- "didn't remember" what we had discussed. Not a good neighborhood! However, the one bright spot is the Italian restaurant in the hotel. I would never stay here again!

What a Marriott Should Be

from A TripAdvisor Member
For my two-week business trip to London, the Marriott Maida Vale was all I could have asked for and more. The staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The room was spacious, comfortable, and well-appointed with high-speed internet, a desk, chair, table, armchair, king-sized bed, two night stands, room safe, television, mini-refrigerator, and plenty of ambient and task lighting. The bathroom bordered on luxurious, with a generous tub, taupe and green marble tile on the walls and floor, and thick, thirsty towels. Room service always arrived within 20 minutes, and the meals were delicious. The elevators were fast. London is a hectic place and the Maida Vale, which is easily located near the Underground (5 minute walk in a safe neighborhood), was an oasis where I could either relax or get additional work completed at the end of a busy workday. Caveat, however, London is expensive. Very expensive. After you get over the sticker shock -- London prices make New York City look reasonable and affordable -- enjoy a beautiful room in a beautiful, easily-accessible hotel.

Nice Marriott

from ILNDGRL71
Typical Marriott. Rooms were clean, standard size, comfortable and included all the amenities. Breakfast left a lot to be desired. We experienced no problems during check-in/out. It is conveniently located next an Underground stop.

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Marriott Hotel Maida Vale was wonderful. We had enjoyed our stay. March 25 to 30, 2004. Located about three city blocks from the tube stop, and right on the bus line it was a very great location. Abbey Road Studios is close by. Several good pubs including THE RED LION are right there. The neighborhood is a older and not as clean looking as others we were in, but very friendly. There is a security guard that stands in the lobby. He was very kind and answered our questions abouth the area. My 13 year old daughter and I were traveling alone and we felt safe coming in late from the theater.There is good shopping in the area, with a discount clothing store and a Mark and Spencers for food. Our room had a small refrigerator that worked great for soda, cheese and sandwiches.We LOVED the beds. Great sleeping. My daugther was trying to figure out how to get them home. Our room was quiet and overlooked the side street. The curtains closed so the room was very dark to sleep late. There is a pool, sauna and workout facility for your use.We found our room on visitlondon and got a great rate which included breakfast each morning. It was a full breakfast with a great selection. The beakfast would have been expensive if not included in our room.We will stay here again. If just for the BEDS alone.

Top Local Tips for London

Travel Cards If you're going to be using the Underground, look into 1-day or 3-day travel cards. They pay ofr themselves very quickly and keep you from having to worry about how much the fair is in different stations. Ask at the station for help making the best choice for your location and needs-- they're very helpful.

Sightseeing in London If there is one tourist spot that is worth the time and money, it's the Tower of London. Devote a few hours to this site and be sure to follow the guided tour led by a resident Beefeater. The guided portion lasts about 40 minutes but is quite entertaining and informative. Once inside the grounds following the completion of the guided tour, you have access to a maze of buildings operating as museums for the crown jewels, weapons/armor, and a vast amount of historical information. The exit to the Tower places you on the banks of the Thames near the Tower Bridge allowing for some excellent photo oppurtunities. If you enjoy strolling around the city and checking things out, take a walk across the bridge and over to the outdoor Borough Market off of Southwark Street (open on Thurs, Fri, and Sat). Grab lunch, fresh produce or a delicious giant brownie and soak up the scenery of locals and professionals going about their daily business.

Bus We enjoyed riding the bus. We bough day passes and it was very easy to get around. Next time we´ll buy longer term passes.
