I booked a family room for a group of 4 girls for a chilled weekend in London. For the hotel, we felt it was really good value for money. Location - fab location, by Green Park station; 2minutes walk. 10mins stroll to Picadilly/Regent St/New Bond St Rooms - very comfortable and spacious. Bathrooms have double sinks, walk in shower and... More

I stayed here on a business trip over my usual Westminster Plaza booking and didn't regret it. I had a beautifully decorated and very new feeling room in the hotel (albeit there was a faint whiff of fresh paint still in the air) with a lovely coffee machine and all facilities I needed to relax after travelling at night. The... More

I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions. It just gets better. From the moment you enter the foyer, the heady, exotic fragrance that envelops the hotel hits you. The staff are professional and courteous but more importantly, there are lots of them, so queuing to check in or out is minimal. There are too many things to mention,... More

I stayed 2 nights at the mayfair. The location is decent, right in the heart of mayfair close to parks, shopping, and restaurants. The hotel itself was nice and the service was friendly, but nothing stood out. There was no wow factor like you should get for the price. There are better hotels that cost less, have a better location,... 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.
