Had afternoon tea at the Mayfair London. It was nice and plentiful and staff friendly. Relaxed surroundings. It was good value for what we paid and a nice area. The parts of the hotel we saw looked nice

We've stayed here a couple of times. It's in a great location in Mayfair, close to shops, tube and local attractions. The rooms are of high quality, clean and classy. The hotel is suitable for young and old and has a trendy vibe to it. Downstairs there's a very nice bar that serves good food, ideal for lunch after checking... More

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
