The staff are always very welcoming, hotel has such an lovely elegant feel. We had a Superior room which was lovely, spacious and welcoming. We have stayed quite a few times before and have always had a great experience. The location is good, just off Piccadilly, 5 minutes to Fortnum and Masons. Not far from Green Park for a lovely...

A really fantastic hotel, that has modern interior, yet still manages to maintain a traditional and cosy atmosphere. The location is perfect, close to many places you'd want to visit, and right next to Green Park Station for underground service. My room was very spacious, and had a large bathroom. I very much enjoyed my stay here, and would stay...

My husband booked a weekend in London for the two of us to do some shopping and see the Christmas lights. The hotel is very central and the location was good. We booked a deluxe room but were very underwhelmed. The decor is bland and beige. The beds and pillows are very comfortable but there are no nice finishes like,...

The service at the Mayfair was outstanding, especially the concierge team who were always available (and never a line waiting to speak to them). They always remembered my name and helped with dinner and tour reservations. The rooms are very nice and even had a US plug. The full breakfast in the Mayfair Kitchen was delicious with very friendly and...

Last week I was fortunate enough to stay at the Mayfair. On arrival I was greeted by the duty manager, he welcomed me by name and immediately took care of all my needs. My room was superb. The service was excellent throughout. I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough

We recently stayed at the MayFair Hotel. We arrived in early morning. There were no rooms available since the hotel was full the night before and patrons hadn’t started to check out yet. We were going through out bags to grab raincoats and umbrella before leaving out bags with the bellmen when Christine came over and said a room just...

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.
