Very good location. The staff are friendly. Property maintenance is good. My room was not spacious but of good size, well equipped and quite. Very comfortable bedding. I recommend not booking the breakfast. At the cost of 22 pound it is disproportionate to the limited choice it offers. Also be aware that free minibar means only tea, coffee and plain...

We booked a Mad Hatters afternoon tea, when we pulled up in a taxi we was greeted by a lovely gentleman who showed us where to go. We waited in the lobby and was then shown to our table. The afternoon tea was lovely and plenty of, they also offer you more if you would like it. If there is...

Hotel staff were great and breakfast was good. Our room was very small although had everything we needed, they had made clever use of mirrors to try and make the space bigger but we still were on top of each other. The bathroom door was a slider and could be seen through, also the door did not work very well....

Our second experience wasn't quite as nice as the first. Our room overlooking Green Park was one of the smallest rooms ever with a double bed (we had requested a king bed). Not only was the bed a tight squeeze, it was the one of the most uncomfortable beds we've ever experienced. Fortunately the staff is still very efficient, i.e.,...

Very nice place for business and family as well. Located in the heart of London near parks and attractions. Excellent people take care of you and help you to plan you day in London. I recommend the restaurant and the bar as well. If you have time pick a bike to ride the park.

Very nice hotel in the heart of the nicest area. We lived the bedding, pillows, service at all levels, and the convenience to Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Picadilly, the Thames, and the theaters. The concierge, Duncan, was fabulous and animated, helping us on multiple days. Rates were very fIr for the location and amenities.

We had a lovely 1 night stay for our anniversary. Staff were attentive and kind. Rooms were spacious and surprisingly silent given the hustle bustle outside. I will definitely be staying here on future visits to London. Location is ideal.

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.
