Stayed at this hotel a few times. I can not discount the fact that the location is great but so is the Holiday Inn next door. With the price you pay you get in my opinion very little. Rooms are OK, bed mattresses are old and deformed! The internet is unstable at best. All in all for that kind of... More

A very pleasant place to stay and a great location. All the staff were very helpful and the restaurant, The Mayfair Kitchen is excellent. Room was the lowest level but still very nice with some funky decor. I am not sure if I would stay here for a normal rate but for the discount that I got through Lastminute.com it... More

I stayed at the May Fair for two nights in April and had a great time. I was upgraded upon arrival which was already a perfect start. The beds are very comfortable and a very modern bathroom however the decor was not for me. I found a few of the colour schemes and details to almost border on cheap. (Red... More

We stayed for one night at the May Fair prior to a wedding in London in early July. Our initial contact was with the concierge/doorman who directed us to the sat-nav unfriendly NCP. Perhaps the valet parking is worthwhile... Really, from the moment we first pulled up, the service was exceptional. We were greeted at each turn but never made... More

Very comfortable, huge bed, quiet room, fun decor - good facilities. Great value at GBP 244. The hotel restaurant was good with charming service, the bar gets very busy, definitely worth reserving a table there. Stylish lobby, foyer - great buzz.

I spent the weekend of of June 27th to June 29th at the May Fair Hotel, London. It was a fantastic experience, the staff were so helpful, especially at the front desk where my booking was handled by a young man called Pau, who so helpful and efficient and made our stay very pleasant.

My family and I had not visited London before so the location of this hotel was the attraction. We booked five months ahead and asked for adjoining rooms for our daughter but were told that this was not possible so we had to settle for two rooms in the same corridor. Our daughters room was ok but ours had the... More
