We have stayed at the May Fair twice and had terrific experiences both times. Our rooms were large and comfortable, and the staff is beyond helpful. They go out of their way to attend to every possible need. The location in Mayfair is close to many excellent restaurants and the Green Park tube stop is one block away. Will definitely... More

Attended a conference at this hotel. Being in Mayfair it is an ideal location, close to Buckingham Palace and to Piccadilly Circus. The Green Park underground station is just a short walk away so can get around very easily. For a London hotel the rooms are large, clean and well appointed and the staff are very helpful. I stayed here... More

Everything about my hotel stay fulfilled my needs for a luxurious yet welcoming and friendly experience. The lobby staff and concierge team did everything to make our stay perfect. Meeting facilities were excellent. Will choose this hotel for any future London trips.

Even though I got a good price on what used to be a favourite hotel, the whole experience was entirely depressing. Checking in and out my party of one (i.e. me) was clearly an ordeal for the inexperienced and low energy reception staff. I stay in London 5* hotels two or three times a week and the competition in this... More

Thank you for your review which obviously I was most disappointed to read. Your feedback is extremely concerning and I would really like you to make contact with my Deputy, Botho Stein, so we can discuss this in more detail and follow up accordingly. Botho can be contacted via the Hotel main switchboard. We hope to hear from you soon.... More

Fantastic hotel, in the heart of the city. So cosy and plush. Outstanding service! Had a delicious late lunch at the restaurant. Since we were flying out of London in the afternoon we asked reception if we could have a late check out, this was no problem. No faults, will definitely return again!
