The May Fair Hotel was many years ago the place to be seen. It had history, prestige, glamour and sophistication among the well heeled. I think around ten years ago it went through a full renovation, and was the place to be. Unfortunately the place is looking rather tired and in need of an update. Many z list celebraties are...

My wife and I stayed to celebrate our anniversary. The room was nice and bright situated on the fourth floor. The carpets were grubby and could do with a really good clean or replacement. One issue was the room had no net curtains. Being overlooked means that to obtain any privacy you need to close the heavy curtains and walk...

First class hotel - room was ready 3 hours earlier than official check in time!! Reception area exudes luxury as did the standard room we stayed in. Location unbeatable - less than 5 mins walk from Green Park, Piccadilly Circus, Regents Street. Short tube or taxi ride to anywhere you'd want to see in the centre of London. Really nice...

Our experience at May Fair hotel was really good: the breakfast, the location, the service, everything went really well. but i really don´t think the rooms need a little bit more sofistication to be worth of a 5 star rating, although they are very confortable.

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.
