My husband and I visited this hotel for my birthday - our bedroom had a horrible buzzing sound from the AC that kept us awake through most of our first night. Housekeeping were informed and they took their time to attend to our problem. The room had a funny damp smell and the pillows were extremely uncomfortable. Eventually, we moved...

This has been by far the most appealing Hotel with absolute top service, really nice, up to date rooms, a very good restaurant serving a very unique and healthy breakfast and a welcoming cocktail bar....

We caught the red eye flight over from the States to London to start a two week long journey. We chose The May Fair because of its proximity to Piccadilly theatre district. The traffic from the airport was horrendous so I was ready to collapse upon arrival. We wandered down to the bar where they served amazing food and drinks...

From the moment we arrived until the leaving we were looked after very well. We were upgraded to a King Deluxe room on the sixth floor which was huge with a fantastic bathroom, walk in shower and luxurious bath. The bed was very comfy and we were treated to chilled Prosecco and chocolates on arrival. Breakfast was a fantastic spread,...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood 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.

“A lot of the rooms look onto a not very attractive internal courtyard which can't be helped but they are very quiet.”
