I stayed in a fab hotel in the Marylebone district (link below). Here’s the very capable Ingrid who runs the place. She’s originally from Vilnius, Lithuania.
Every morning at the communal table, she’d serve me hot coffee and toasted crumpets for my breakfast.
In the winter, it gets dark at 4 pm. Near the hotel is a fabulous Turkish restaurant called Ishtar. I highly recommend it.
I wandered over to two fab shopping streets near the hotel, Chiltern Street first and then Marylebone High Street.
Strolling city streets on cold, clear nights has always been a great pleasure of mine. Below is the link to the hotel. More to come.
Tip: As long as you don’t take a room higher than the second floor, I recommend this hotel (as in most old houses, there’s no lift (elevator.)) The second floor is actually the third floor.
