This was our third stay at The Mayfair Hotel, this time we were lucky as we booked a secret hotel deal and were pleased to find out it was the Mayfair. We arrived earlier than check in and were just going to leave our bags but the desk told us that our room was ready and that we had been... More

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was as I would expect from a hotel such as the May Fair (the breakfast was very good) except the room. The bathroom was small and in desperate need of modernisation when comparing it to other hotels in the same price range. The carpets looked... More

The May Fair Hotel was many years ago the place to be seen. It had history, prestige, glamour and sophistication among the well heeled. I think around ten years ago it went through a full renovation, and was the place to be. Unfortunately the place is looking rather tired and in need of an update. Many z list celebraties are...

My wife and I stayed to celebrate our anniversary. The room was nice and bright situated on the fourth floor. The carpets were grubby and could do with a really good clean or replacement. One issue was the room had no net curtains. Being overlooked means that to obtain any privacy you need to close the heavy curtains and walk... More

First class hotel - room was ready 3 hours earlier than official check in time!! Reception area exudes luxury as did the standard room we stayed in. Location unbeatable - less than 5 mins walk from Green Park, Piccadilly Circus, Regents Street. Short tube or taxi ride to anywhere you'd want to see in the centre of London. Really nice... 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.
