Cumberland is a four-star hotel located in Marble Arch. For first time tourists to London there is no better location, 5 minutes from the shopping meccas of Oxford Street and Bond Street, a short walk from Hyde Park and two minutes from Marble Arch tube station as well as buses to pretty much everywhere.

When we stayed at the hotel the lobby was hosting an Urban Art exhibition of works from the likes of Banksy, Mr Brainwash, Nick Walker and other trendy pieces we didn’t recognise. The lobby is huge, in fact the whole hotel is huge with over 1,000 rooms and 6 restaurants and bars which makes it one of London’s biggest hotels.

We stayed the night in a ‘Double Cumberland Guest Room’ located on the fifth floor down corridors which slightly resembled a cruise ship, we’re not sure if it was the blue lighting or the silver boxes on the walls which made us feel we were at sea. Inside the room had everything you might need for a city stay with double bed, flat screen TV, tea and coffee making facilities and bathroom with power shower, fluffy towels and robes.

The bed was comfy and we slept well however we did have the odd grumble – no free WiFi,  the products weren’t great and the breakfast was slightly disappointing. We’re not sure if that’s because we ate in the brasserie rather than the Market restaurant but some of the food just wasn’t up to scratch.

Even taking these into account we’d still definitely recommend The Cumberland given its location and value for money although we’d suggest taking your own products and grabbing brekkie elsewhere.

You can stay at The Cumberland from £169 per deluxe double room per night however if you look online you can usually get a slightly cheaper rate – when we checked for Halloween we found a double room for £111 per night which give it’s location is a STEAL!
