“A rich area of London”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

This review is about the area of Mayfair in London, not the hotel.

It’s no coincidence that it’s the most expensive property in the UK Monopoly board game, the place screams money, with some of the highest rents in London, and therefore the world. It used to be primarily residential, but now it’s a mixture of residential, commercial (hedge funds and corporate headquarters), embassies and consulates. Unless you have business there, or live or know people there, there’s not much to it, other than walking around looking at the architecture.

But as a general area, it does contain some popular London highlights, such as Regent Street to the north, Park Lane to the west, Hyde Park Corner, Grosvenor Square and the imposing US Consulate, Curzon Street, Bond Street, Berkeley Square and Savile Row.

“A Combined Park & Fifth Avenues”
Reviewed 12 June 2014 via mobile

A classy, phenomenal, all sophisticated street, you'll find anything expensive here and look at the side streets, from Lamborghini to Bentley to Ferrari and all kinds of expensive cars were on the street. My wife enjoys walking here, a truly shopping galore.

“Must see in London”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 via mobile

From the Berkley gardens, to the Bentley showrooms, to the Mayfair Hotel, to Nobu, to Hakkasan. What more could you need? Oh yes, shopping. Too many to list! This area has for to be the most posh in London, thus boasting expensive cars, casinos, and high-end hotels. This is why some of the wealthiest countries' embassies choose it for a home. Well recommended to visit.

“Delightful”
Reviewed 30 April 2014

It is a cool neighborhood with trendy bars, stores and restaurants but a couple of very nice parks with art, trees and birds to walk by.
