Having to stay in hotels every week for work, I have a good range of hotels to base comparisons on.. the Mayfair is a lovely hotel, great Central location, near most major attractions and yes it's expensive but you are staying in Mayfair, so what do you expect. The staff are all friendly and helpful without being pushy. My partner... More

Not a cheap hotel but after all this is 5 star central London hotel....however....we thought that we were paying for a bit of luxury. We experienced total luxury on previous stays at the Landmark and the Athaneum so we hoped for the same here however they were poles apart! Large hotel in a side street very near to the Ritz...

My first impression of the May Fair was excellent. Check in service was great, the staff was friendly, the room was spacious for London, the bathroom was modern, and the bed was comfortable. It had all the makings for a high end hotel for a business trip. Unfortunately, that was ruined by the ability to enjoy the rest of the... More

Have stayed here before but I usually stay at another hotel in Park Lane. On this occasion, went back to the Mayfair because it was close to my planned meetings. Really impressed - lots of space in my room and a large bathroom to boot. Decor and amenities are modern and the staff were very helpful. They also threw in... More

The hotel is clean, spacious and comfortable. The staff are attentive and the food (we ate in the Mayfair Kitchen for supper and breakfast) was excellent. £34 for breakfast is a little in the high side, but ours was included in a bed and breakfast deal. Highly recommend.

Was a fantastic hotel to stay in, we used the concierge service before check in to hold our bags rather than drag them around all day, and did the same before check out. I had questions before the day that were answered swiftly and the addition of the Mayfair app was a cherry in the cake for additional extras, or... 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.
