I’m well into the planning of my three-week trip to London in March and April next year and I’ll be spending the majority of that time South Kensington, with four days at the end to spend elsewhere. I’d like to try a different part of London and so far I’ve narrowed down my choices to The Nadler Soho or The Marylebone Hotel, but I’m struggling to decide which would be best location-wise.
Both seem like very nice hotels, close to tube stations, Oxford Street and various places of interest, but would one location be more appealing than the other? My first choice was the Nadler, mainly because I’ve stayed at the South Kensington property and felt that the concept really suited me, but I'm a bit concerned Soho might a bit chaotic, especially over a weekend. I’m definitely not a nightlife person, and I’m not sure I’d be happy surrounded by a lot of revelry. Marylebone seems quieter (or is it?), and appealingly close to my beloved Selfridges, but perhaps a little more out of the way. I haven’t spent any real time in either area and I’m basing my perceptions on what I’ve read online, so I’d really appreciate the opinions of those of you more familiar with London than I am.
I guess what I’m asking is, if you were choosing between the two, which would you prefer and why? Any and all help would be much appreciated. Thank you!
