The bathroom was fabulous with a gorgeous free standing bath. The room was a very good size, with table and tv area and lounge. Loved the lollies (sweets) in the... More

upon arrival, check in was fast and the staff member was extremely friendly! the room sizes were good and the bathrooms were exceptionally great! the only downfall was you can hear a lot of noise going on outside the room which disturbed our sleep two nights in a row.. other then that, I would stay here again!

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.
