This hotel has a lively and buzzy atmosphere in the lobby and bar areas and there was lots going on (private events) when we stayed which added to this so it was perfect for our celebratory weekend with friends. Despite a long history, it is now a very modern and smart hotel. The accommodation and service were good, breakfast also... More

We spent the weekend in London and absolutely loved the hotel. The location of the hotel was ideal to explore all the main sights in the centre of London, we walked easily to Picadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, etc. The design of the hotel is stylish and our room was spacious and beautifully decorated, we slept so comfortable as we rarely...

My boyfriend booked this hotel for my 21st this weekend & we had the most amazing time. We've been to London for day trips many times, but this is the first time we spent the whole weekend there. Due to the fact that we were on a pleasure trip, they located us at the back of the hotel so that... More

I visited and stayed in the May Fair hotel in London a couple of weeks ago. On entry the hotel is busy and bustling at the reception area. Check in was pleasant and friendly and my bag was taken to my room for me. The room itself was on the 7th floor but the view was only of the office... More

The May Fair is one of my favourite hotels. The rooms are stunning. The staff are really polite and helpful. The cocktail menu in the bar is amazing - and if it's not on the menu they'll still make it for you.

We have stayed at The May Fair on at least 9 occasions now and once again, our stay was absolutely perfect. We were with our 1 year old son and every request we made was accommodated. We chose one of the Duplex suites so we had a bit more room for all of the 'stuff' you need when travelling with... 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.
