We were only staying in London for the night but the hotel allowed us to check in early and held our luggage after check out. This gave us two full days to see a bit more of London. It was my wife's 50th so they did a couple of nice extras. We stayed in a junitor suite which was very... More

Nice environment and very friendly and efficient afternoon tea team. Would go back to it anytime. A nice place to take your guests and impress them! Central London near Oxford Street and Hyde Park. Ideal for shopping and relaxing time at the same time.

Stayed during the August bank holiday - pleased that when we arrived at 11am the room was ready for us to check in. The location was fantastic, close to Green Park station with loads of top-class restaurants nearby (we chose Novikov). The hotel furnishings and surroundings are nice, nothing spectacular and I would say the same for the room. Considering... More

If you love London that this Hotel puts you right in the middle of everything. And if you add modern spacious rooms, friendly staff and good rates, then you get a Gem. Very rare to get this combination in London. I simply adore this hotel.

Over the years we have stayed in a number of London hotels and always found them wanting. No more. The May Fair is superb. Got it all. Great location, great service, great rooms and great restaurants. The concierge and front door staff cannot be beat. Always so friendly. Same for the front desk staff. Taxis always waiting in front.

Just returned from a family 2 night stay at The May Fair. Hotel was pre-paid but they still required a deposit of £300.00 per room for our 2 night stay ! Luggage was not delivered to our rooms, so after waiting for 20 minutes I decided to go back to reception where our luggage was in full view of all... More

I've stayed at most of the 5 star hotels in London over the years, from the stuffy ones to the ones that leave you wondering "How is this place a 5-star?". The May Fair is certainly one of the best in London. Very hip, cool hotel. Great staff, the newly refurbed restaurant is excellent and the breakfast buffet is unlikely... More

We stayed for one night and we will definitely be returning. It's just around the corner from the Green Park tube station so it's easy to get to. It's also within walking distance of Victoria Coach Station, although I wouldn't advise it if you have a lot of heavy luggage. The hotel itself is exactly what you would expect from... More

Had a great stay in August, only one night but would have loved a few more. Staff were very accommodating & friendly. Room was upgraded on arrival. Great location, 3 minute walk from Buck Palace. Lots of the 'beautiful people' swanning about and was fun to watch the conspicuous display of extreme wealth off the other guests. Very nice hotel... More
