Despite having stayed at least 20 times at the Mayfair, our last visit one week ago leaves us, for the first time, with a sense of having been received at home and by people who care about you. This was all thanks to Mr. Amin Wakarul, Night Manager, who, seeing that we had arrived from a long flight and a... More

Having stayed in this hotel at the weekend - overall I would rate it poor and will not be returning. Reasons why: At check in we were asked it we wanted a newspaper - we said yes - the first morning one was not delivered. Don't offer something if you're not going to follow through. Bedroom was unnecessarily large -... More

Room service waiters were so kindy and nice,and fish and chips very tasty... More

thinks of itself better than it actually is. certainly wouldn't rate it as a 5 star. better off staying at the holiday inn next door. over-priced restaurant, average food. staff on reception appear to be awfully snooty - again thinking themselves to be something more than they actually are - like the hotel - perhaps they've become like this because...

The location here is key - just opposite Nobu ..What does a Japanese food lover like me, need more? The hotel itself is not that high end: Lots of people all over the noisy lobby, the bar. Not for people who seek British tradition or class. But it is practical: Functional rooms, with modern renovation. The gym is small, but... More

I was moved from the overbooked Radisson Vanderbuilt to The May Fair which was a particularly good exchange. The May Fair paid my can fare, checked me in quickly and accompanied me to the room. I passed decorators who were polite and apologetic for being there :-) I had a good wander around to make the most of my treat... More

We have stayed at the May Fair many times in the past several years and it continues to provide service above and beyond. The Concierge desk (Paul and colleagues) are unfailingly helpful with theatre tickets, dining recommendations, rail tickets and whatever we need while at the hotel. The location is within easy walking distance of restaurants, shops, London parks and... More

This is my third time at the May Fair, and each time it just gets better and better. From the time you walk in to the time you walk out you are treated with more than just plain courtesy and respect, they treat you as if you were royalty. I booked two rooms to take my parents on an adventure... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel, we only stayed for 1 night but the room was lovely and the bed was so comfy, and the bathroom was huge. When we arrived we was greeted by very friendly and helpful staff which was nice, we then decided to go for a drink in the bar once we checked out... More

Few hotels can beat the central location of the May Fair at this price-point. It is in walking distance of major shops and restaurants and an underground station is right around the corner. Breakfast selection is excellent and rooms are well-euipped and clean. The one negative is that it is very busy at night and with a small to almost... More
