Browns hotel is a favorite in London. Perfect location, welcoming staff, stylish decorated and a georgeous breakfast. I do think the standard rooms are a bit too small for the price though and some with a pretty bad view.

I stayed here with my husband and our three kids. We were able to get adjoining rooms, which we were thrilled to stay in an older historic hotel and still have adjoining rooms. This hotel is centrally located, and is really quite nice. The service is impeccable and the rooms were spacious and very clean. The breakfast buffet was great... More

Afternoon Tea is one of my real favourite treats & having tried many establishments in London and the home counties I feel that I can honestly report that although this was good, it really was not great & I have had better especially for the price! The beautiful lounge area, split into three rooms with the pianist is unsurpassable. Spotless... More

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

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.
