Very nice hotel in the heart of the nicest area. We lived the bedding, pillows, service at all levels, and the convenience to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Picadilly, the Thames, and the theaters. The concierge, Duncan, was fabulous and animated, helping us on multiple days. Rates were very fIr for the location and amenities.

We had a lovely 1 night stay for our anniversary. Staff were attentive and kind. Rooms were spacious and surprisingly silent given the hustle bustle outside. I will definitely be staying here on future visits to London. Location is ideal.

I can't praise this hotel enough for the stay that myself and my partner had for his birthday weekend. From the very beginning being greeted by the friendly doorman, to checking in and the reception staff wishing my partner a happy birthday was really personal. The room was beautiful, clean and with everything you would expect. The bed was very... More

We had a good stay here, the quality of service and food was excellent, and the accommodation good at a reasonable rate for expensive central London. The rooms are not massive but ok, and well equipped. We had a superior room with no views except the street, but it was very quite facing on to the side street, not busy... More

We stayed here for one night over August Bank holiday weekend. When we checked in, we were told that our room had been upgraded, and after completing paperwork, the receptionist showed us to our room, which was in House 4, in a small street to the side of the hotel building. The room was large, lovely had airy , small... More

Room overlooked Green Park so was well located, but had to haggle to get the the room. Initially was led outside of the hotel to an apparent annexe to get to our room. We protested at which point we were led through the hotel and through service corridors to get to the room via an alternative route. We refused and... More

We have stated before and had no problems. This time we had problems with noisy children in the adjoining bedroom who were up all night. Called reception but didn't stop them. Room is comfortable. The staff are all really friendly and its is in a great location. I wouldn't book breakfast again however as I found the cost disproportionate to... More

My friend and I stayed just for the one night but it was a stay I shall never forget from the lovely doorman rushing to protect us from the pouring rain and the afternoon tea which just went on and on to the drinks and canapé invite on booking in, apparently they do it every Wednesday. The food was delicious... More

We were bought afternoon tea for two as a wedding gift at the hotel and it was so lovely. We were seated at the 5.30pm sitting which I think made all the difference as we didn't feel rushed at all (you get a 2hr slot for your sitting and they have 3 a day, the 5.30pm one is the last).... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
