Stayed for one night and had a lovely large room that was really quiet for central London. A perfect location for the theatre etc. room was really clean and bathroom large and modern. Staff very helpful. My only niggle was breakfast which was a bit of a "bun fight!" Would happily stay again.

My wife and I stayed here for a night as part of our honeymoon. From the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out we were treated like royalty. I have never seen such an incredibly high standard of customer service from staff in all parts of a hotel. If I could give a 6th start on the...

The Mayfair has such a strong ambience that draws you out of yourself. Beginning from the personalized and warm welcome from the front desk staff to the unique room style, you feel like a royal. The bathroom size is an uncommon feature in a typical London hotel of this status. I pray the management keep up the high standard! Bravo!

We had a lovely 2 night weekend stay at The May Fair Hotel in March, and it was a much needed break from the norm. The Hotel very kindly actioned my request for a room with a roll top bath, the girl on check-in wished my Girlfriend a Happy Birthday, and there was even a bottle of Moet champagne on...

I stayed at The May Fair back in January and had a lovely experience, so I was highly anticipating my return last week. It came close to perfect had it not been for a slight rickety noise in the A/C unit that night that woke me up repeatedly. As for the hotel and staff, it continues to be top notch....

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.
