Scenic, relaxed Notting Hill to the northwest, manic shopping hub Oxford Street to the northeast, Hyde Park to the southwest and seedy, buzzing Soho to the southeast. Marble Arch hotels range in quality from small-time family establishments to some of London’s grandest institutions clustered around the park.
