Great shops and walking distance into the city/ theatre district. My partner & I thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will be recommending to our friends for a special get away. Room service was...

Going for my birthday stayed one night here. To see this has the same star rating as many other top hotels in London is a joke. It is the furthest thing from it. Staff are arrogant, sexist and rude. Good luck getting served in the bar if your female or not flashing a £50 note at the bartender. Do not... More

Great location off Picadilly with great access to Green Park Tube stn is the key merit of this hotel. Renovated several years ago, its still ok, but at risk of showing "boutique hotel wear" soon. Elevators were a mess.

Lovely stay in a very centric hotel in London. Our room wasn't available on arrival so we were offered with an upgrade. A very friendly staff was always providing assistance. Pau Arbona ensured our stay was comfortable and up to expectations

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.
