I had read tripadvisors reviews before staying here, so I was aware of the renovations. I thought I would be smarter than everybody else so I wrote to the hotel before booking and asked for "a room isolated from the renovation noise". One of the employee, Mina, wrote back saying that she would get me a room "as far as... More

This hotel gives misleading information on its website and the management are not interested in assisting guests who have a legitimate complaint. Our weekend was spoiled as services advertised on the hotel's website as being available, were not. The whole spa area was out of bounds due to refurbishment which as we were on a pampering weekend was extremely disappointing.... More

My husband booked the hotel to add to our romantic weekend away. Its a lovely hotel and in a great location. Loved the complimentary slippers and dressing gowns and the bedroom with all its glass was beautiful but at no point was it mentioned about the hotel renovation! took away some of the excitement of staying in a 5 star...

Booked a room here for a birthday treat. Was over priced with a small room overlooking other windows close by. Under renovation so a tiny bar and restaurant. Won't go again. Bit of a con as it is a shocking price

We have been coming here 15 years.This is a genuine fair review.The whole ground floor of the hotel is closed. It's is a nightmare place to stay.There is no reception, no bar, nowhere to sit no where to relax. You have your room, a lift that takes you to a side entrance onto a dismal street and out. They have... More

Welcomed into the lush atmosphere and enjoyed champagne cocktails while our table was being prepared. Wonderful service paired with scrumptious food! Great location, close to the public transit. Thank you!

Great location, good service, comfortable rooms and a good night sleep. Only complaint we had was over a breakfast order which was slightly wrong and in part cold. At checkout this was addressed and resolved by the staff with no hesitation. Will return and would recommend.

I would avoid this hotel until the refurbishments are done. The experience is nowhere near a 5 star experience. I'm not one to normally complain or write reviews but I really feel others should know. Reading the reviews I expected far more. I was very disappointed with the hotel, the refurbishment was not documented clearly on lastminute and when I... More

A luxurious hotel in central London, veg close to Green Park, Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace and all the rest of london. Wonderful rooms with beautiful decor and amazing staff. Fantastic breakfast, good bar food. Very stylish hotel, very luxurious and high class. Well worth the money!

We managed to stay here last August, unfortunately it was only for one night. After reading the reviews we were expecting a nice stay and were not disappointed in any way. The room was fantastic with a great view over Green Park the bed was comfortable with crisp white sheets and the decor was lovely. If I was being really... 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.
