We stayed there 4 days. The hotel lies centrally in Mayfair, so due to dense traffic the taxi ride was about 45 min from the Eurostar station. It lies within walking distance of most shopping areas,historical landmarks and museums. Welcoming doormen and staff, reception lies at the end of the corridor. Check in was fast, we had luxury rooms. Rooms... More

I have just stayed at Browns Hotel on Albemarle Street in Mayfair for two nights). I was fortunate enough to be in a Junior Suite, which was extremely spacious and beautifully decorated. Upon arrival, there was a tray of petit fours, a fruit basket, bottles of highland water and a bottle of chilled white wine (always a good start!). The... More

We had wanted to stay at Brown's for a number of years and in particular to have their much praised afternoon tea. My wife' special birthday gave us the excuse to book.

Everything about Brown's is effortless. This is a confident 5 star establishment that knows its place in firmament of traditional London Hotels. Unlike places like the Ritz its not full of flash wannabes. It just oozes class and sophistication and has an easy charm that comes with confidence in everything they do. Location is second to none. If you choose... More

I want to give this place 5 stars but I cannot. Overall, this is a classy hotel with excellent service throughout. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable.

We recently traveled to London and spent two nights at the Brown Hotel. It is located in the heart of Mayfair, but on a side street so it is quiet. We were pleasantly upgraded to a larger room and had a small sitting area as well as a beautiful bathroom. The staff is extremely professional and answered any question with... More

Stayed here recently and is a great London hotel. The hotel is made up of a series go old town houses and so has the typical charm of an English hotel.

I felt the experience of an afternoon tea was a necessity for our family's first visit to England. Time and research got away from me and I made the reservation the day of the seating - a Saturday (the last seating is earlier during the week). I was right to feel lucky. The servings there are unlimited but it's good... More
