The decor was lovely too, as a cellist myself I particularly enjoyed the paintings behind the concierge desk. The room was lovely (room 657), a good size and I loved the power shower! We didn't eat or drink at the hotel,...

The hotel: I've been to the Mayfair a lot of times with my partner. I like this hotel for a number of reasons. I like the decor, the luxurious simple colors (I'm not a fan of bright colored rooms which you can't find any peace in) and the way everything is beautifully decorated. They pay lots of attention to detail....

An excellent stay at the May Fair Hotel. The hotel's lobby, restaurant, bar and guest rooms all have high quality fittings and are in excellent condition. Everything is elegant but understated. There are plenty of staff available to help, particularly in the lobby. The food I ordered through room service was delivered promptly and was of high quality. The location...

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.
