We have stayed at The May Fair on at least 9 occasions now and once again, our stay was absolutely perfect. We were with our 1 year old son and every request we made was accommodated. We chose one of the Duplex suites so we had a bit more room for all of the 'stuff' you need when travelling with...

This was our third stay at The Mayfair Hotel, this time we were lucky as we booked a secret hotel deal and were pleased to find out it was the Mayfair. We arrived earlier than check in and were just going to leave our bags but the desk told us that our room was ready and that we had been...

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was as I would expect from a hotel such as the May Fair (the breakfast was very good) except the room. The bathroom was small and in desperate need of modernisation when comparing it to other hotels in the same price range. The carpets looked...

The May Fair Hotel was many years ago the place to be seen. It had history, prestige, glamour and sophistication among the well heeled.

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...

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.
