4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Stayed for two nights on business in a superior room on 5th floor. The rooms are spacious and well maintained. The bathroom had a shower and a separate tub which I like. The toiletries are great and the smell of the body wash and the shampoo was amazing. Wished they had it in mini versions so you could take some... More

It always makes for a great stay in London. One of the best bars in London with world class mojitos. Rooms are very nice but nothing special, you could be in any chain hotel with the basic decor. Food is very good although rather over priced for what you get. The casino is great fun for people watching and losing... More

Our group stayed here before to attend our friends' party and we had an enjoyable experience. The staff was fantastic during our stays and helped with our heavy luggage and parking our car etc. This time was for business and the staff was just as helpful. The room was spacious and with beautiful curtains and stylish furniture. The bed was... More

This was the third time (and the first time in ten years) to stay and found that a lot had been changed for better. I stayed three nights with my wife and found again that the hotel was very conveniently located as it was only a minute walk from the Green Park tube station on three separate tube lines. Even...

I returned to the mayfair once again this time with a group of friends I think they must have read my last review because check in couldn't have been more smoother 5 mins max. Check out was the same. Our rooms were nice as usual, only a standard room this time but still very nice indeed. The staff were pleasant,... More

For a hotel of this standard we expected a pleasant stay. Alas it seems nowhere is perfect. We had attended a private screening at the hotel and had hoped for a quiet drink afterwards. I don't know what was going on but the bar was more like a nightclub! We gave up on that idea immediately and retired to our... 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.
