Ideally located close to a tube and the busy Piccadilly part of London. Also close to Buckingham Palace. This was our eighth year of visiting The Mayfair. Great Room and excellent service. Breakfast's on the morning are worth waiting for. First rate food and service. The management, as usual excelled themselves for our annual anniversary visit. Will go again. Walk... More

Posh but large feeling hotel. Huge room, great linens & bath products. Bathroom was amazing and enormous with a full size tub and separate large glass stall shower. Full marble floor and walls. Clean facility. Did not try the restaurant. In my opinion the big detractor with this hotel is the overpowering perfume scent machine they have in the lobby.

Stayed the week before Christmas for birthday celebrations, received a complimentary upgrade and a plate of goodies on arrival... The hotel staff couldn't do enough for us, as you would expect. Stayed in many hotels in London however this is by far one of the best, we will be back soon!,

We have stayed several times at this hotel with good experience. Great location and good service. However during our last stay we had booked a junior suite and when we checked in we could not believe what we got. The room was in the basement with only 2 narrow windows high up on the wall, just below the ceiling of... More

To my great surprise, the May Fair Hotel met all my expectation, as employed in the hotelier industry for many years. All was perfect from the cleanliness of the hotel, the service& hospitality of the entire team. The all staff members were great and very professional, starting with Mr. Davide from the hotel reception, through the waiters in the dining... More

I don't usually praise the people checking in at hotels but this time I must leave a comment as I can not explain how professional and charming Davide Anedda has been during my checking in at the may fair. Nothing was too much to ask for Davide, I requested a high floor room not facing the main road as I... 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.
