Beautiful buildings, spotlessly clean, Mayfair epitomises luxury; shops, restaurants, bars & clubs. What everyone aspires to. But it also has it's real side; normal people also live here. Check out the small pubs & cafes.

A private party, good food, delicious cocktails, attentive service. It's not like I'm going to be here every week so you want it to be good when you do go and it was.

till you drop. This area is super busy and there are many tourists in the main drag. But if you step out of the madness you ma find small corners of quietness and you'll have a peak into the life of the wealthiest londoners. The squares are beautiful and you can rest from the shopping binge if that is your... More

The expensive area of London known as "Mayfair" was definitely made famous from the Monopoly Board Game. It's a lovely area to walk through although I personally could never afford anything on offer. The area is full of expensive residential housing, top end car dealerships, 5 star hotels and restaurants and plenty of designer stores. It's a nice area to... More

I used to enjoy walking along this pedestrianised street in the heart of the West End. An interesting mix of designer shops and a pleasant stroll. However, it is now virtually impossible to walk from one end to the other without someone calling out to you to 'take their sample sachet of cream' or trying to sell you a copy... More

This review is about the area of Mayfair in London, not the hotel. It’s no coincidence that it’s the most expensive property in the UK Monopoly board game, the place screams money, with some of the highest rents in London, and therefore the world. It used to be primarily residential, but now it’s a mixture of residential, commercial (hedge funds... More

From the Berkley gardens, to the Bentley showrooms, to the Mayfair Hotel, to Nobu, to Hakkasan. What more could you need? Oh yes, shopping. Too many to list! This area has for to be the most posh in London, thus boasting expensive cars, casinos, and high-end hotels. This is why some of the wealthiest countries' embassies choose it for a... More
