The hotel is good, but generally i think that it is not the boutique style hotel that the web site presents. Its more a massive hotel than a hotel to spend with your other half. Rooms are good and in good condition. The service is ok (a bit slow but its logic the hotel is huge) Breakfast was typical buffet... More

This hotel does all the big things right: Fantastic location just steps away from Green Park underground station and Mayfair/Piccadilly. The taxi ride from Paddington Express is less than 15 minutes and around £10. The rooms are spacious by London standards, the price is reasonable, the wifi is fast enough, I had a complaint with the TV in my room... More

I arrived at this hotel met by friendly lobby staff and shown to my suite by the manager. The apartment was very spacious, beautifully decorated. I loved the bath and the wet room.

Our first time at the Mayfair ... we didn't know what to expect. We hoped for the best and at every point the hotel and most especially the staff were beyond our expectations. In a world of mediocrity and nigglingly poor service ... the Mayfair is a shinning example of what can be achieved when you do things right. Thank... More

A very nice hotel with all modern facilities and in a really nice location in the heart of Mayfair. Staff were very friendly (special commendation for Joao who regularly served me breakfast). Breakfast in particular was very nice and you must try the cigar room!

This was an elegant hotel and during our stay the organizers for the wimbly soccer tournament were also staying at the hotel which meant the hotel bar was loud and busy all night.

I adore this hotel, the surroundings are luxurious and the service fantastic. A special mention for Antonio, who really went the extra mile. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice and anything not available made to order. Will most definitely be back.

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.
