My wife and I stayed for three nights, and wished it could have been for longer. We stayed in the area before and knew how convenient it was; it is only a short walk from theatres, shopping and some of the major London attractions. Yet its location away from the main roads ensure that we were not disturbed by traffic... More

Stayed at the may fair for 4 nights and really enjoyed it Service is very good despite the hotel being quite full and it is reasonably priced for london standards (which means it is still quite expensive) The rooms could be better and bigger but all hotels in London boast similar sizes.

We had an overnight stay for a joint celebration of my birthday and our wedding anniversary. As soon as you walk through the doors you are made to feel special friendly polite staff. I even managed to get a smoking room normally when you get a smoking room in other hotels you get a small dingy room to carry out... 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.
