The Cumberland Hotel Marble Arch in London

Stayed at Cumberland Hotel Marble Arch for my whole trip in London this round.
Cumberland Hotel Marble Arch @London
The hotel is located in a great spot directly opposite Marble Arch  :
Marble Arch - directly opposite the hotel
And it's also right next door to the "Marble Arch Tube Station" (see the blue circle in the map below):
You will be staying right on Oxford St where you have a huge choice of shops and department stores in here such as Primark, Selfridges, Marks and Spencers! Shop till you drop in here :-)

Although the location of this hotel is excellent, but do not expect a great interior of it thou. This hotel feature a reasonably contemporary deco where you will feel like ur in an art gallery in the lobby - there are large statues of floating men and seats shaped like pods in the gleaming lobby, lit by atmospheric colored lights. 

And as for the rooms, I stayed in two different rooms this trip, but the rooms are all quite small. Perhaps all London hotel rooms are all that small?
  • SMART Double room
SMART Double room as shown in the hotel website, looks very spacious rite?
 And this is what in actual:
Queen size or double bed

They provide complimentary coffee/tea bags and some biscotti, 2 bottle of waters (one is sparkling or gassy water actually). 
Zoom detail a bit on the biscotti they provide, and they give u packet of milk too. How come I cannot find this packet milk in Malaysia one ar?
And the room has a small safety box too.
You have a flat screen TV

And for SMART room, you get a Nespresso coffee machine too to make a coffee yourself. But I did not use it at all actually.
Now see how crowded is the room in actual? The whole place not almost full with the boyfie and my luggage dee. And some more haven't open up our luggage yet la

Now show you the toilet..
The sink area

The shower area

And the jamban area

  • Deluxe King
 Now let's compared it with Deluxe King room..

This is the deluxe king room shown in the hotel website
And the actual photo captured when I stayed there:
Okla..bigger king size bed compared to the previous one. At least can sleep more comfy in here

Get the same facilities like the smart double room, but just the wardrobe is tiny bit bigger slightly perhaps?

See the mess created in the room due to tiny spaces in even a deluxe king room!

The corridor leading to the room door

And slightly spacious toilet in here
Apart from the slightly spacious area, most of the facilities in the deluxe king room are similar with the SMART double room ones.

One thing good about this hotel is their free unlimited WIFI is very fast! Good for those coming for business trip as you get a good internet connection here.
