“THE best Hotel in London”
Reviewed 4 January 2013 via mobile

I've stayed at The Haymarket on many occasions and always love to return. I only live 20 mins from the Hotel and work 5 mins away ... but adore staying as a 'treat' to myself or to stay there with visiting relatives.

The rooms are all uniquely decorated - and maintained and cleaned to an incredibly high spec. The Firmdale Company train their staff to a very high standard - and this is obvious from the level of service. The Front Desk and Restaurant/ Room Service team are particularly helpful and polite.

The Hotel has a swimming pool and various function /private rooms - and lovely touches such as the Honesty Bar in the Guest Lounge and well-stocked DVD library for when you want to put your feet up after hitting the London sights and shops!

Location-wise, it is hard to be more central : the Hotel is just along from Piccadilly Circus and Leicester Square - and on the corner of Trafalgar Square. St James Park, the Mall/Whitehall are right on the doorstep - and if the shoe leather is worn .. bus and tube stops are right outside.

The day I win the Lottery (!) I will happily move in to one of the 2 bedroom Suites permanently!

Hotel is clean, looks brand new, and staff were very helpful. Location is perfect for walking to most attractions, theatre, etc.

Concierge managed to get us last minute theatre tickets below cost and was helpful in other requests we had.

Breadkfast buffet is good, though omelette was a bit inconsistent from day to day.

One major downfall is that because the hotel is so centrally located, it is a bit noisy at times. That is to be expected though and noise is common for any major city.

Only major complaint is that we were usually woken up between 6am and 7am to the sound of glass bottles being dumped (presumably for garbage collection) each day.

Would I stay there again? Possibly, though I would want to ask for a room not on Suffolk Place (above the entrance), as this seems to be the noisiest area.

Room Tip: Higher floor so you are not as close to ground level traffic, conversations, garbage collection

Great location near Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, and Charing Cross tube station. Stayed there 4 nights in April, not inexpensive to be honest (over $500 USD a night), but had a wonderful stay and would do so again. Concierge and front desk staff extremely helpful, made dinner reservations for us, and got us last minute tickets to Phantom and Tower of London. On my last night there, due to a very loud party right near in the hotel, they took 50% off my last nights rate, a very nice touch. Hotel is so very convenient, we were able to easily walk to the London Eye, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace, and many other locations within a 2 mile radius. Top quality rooms, extremely comfortable bed, provided a small lavender spray bottle for the pillows and linens before you'd go to sleep, large bathroom with Miller-Harris toiletries, room had a US electrical outlet already there, very handy. In-house Brumus restaurant very nice - ate breakfast there every morning and they had the most wonderful bacon. All in all, a top notch hotel if you don't mind pampering yourself a bit. Do note though that back in April at least you did have to pay for WiFi access.

Room Tip: I had a superior room although next time I would ask for a room not on the first floor, due to the p...

It is difficult to provide a personal service whilst oiling the wheels of the day to day running of a top notch London hotel yet this place does it.With style .
Absolute discretion .Total attention to details .Enduring a style that sets it apart and stages many a night never to forget.I never will.

In October we stayed in the Haymarket for 10 days. It was part of of an overseas trip & what a great way it was to begin our holidays. We arrived early morning & jet lagged from Australia and right from the outset the staff were welcoming. What a fabulous location in the west end of London. Not only for its fabulous theatres and night life but being so close to many of London's major attractions like Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, Piccadilly Circus & Regent Street. All the staff including the doormen, staff at reception & in the restaurant were very professional, friendly & helpful. Being an interior designer myself I loved the boutique feel of the Haymarket with the different design elements used in each of the rooms and suites. The Haymarket has the feel of a luxurious family home rather than a hotel. I loved the fabrics & furniture used in the public areas like the Lounge and Library. There was nothing better than relaxing & having a coffee in the library after a long day sightseeing. Have I forgotten the Brumus Restaurant which is a very trendy meeting place- a great place to have breakfast , lunch or dinner or a drink at the bar? I am looking forward to see what Kit Kemp will come up for her next project.

Room Tip: Loved our Junior Suite which faced Her Majesty's Theatre and was wery quiet.

Returned to The Haymarket for a business event and it reaffirmed why i love this hotel to entertain important guests that I want to impress. From the moment you arrive outside the still restrained exterior and are met by friendly and helpful door staff, through check-in to contact with any of the staff in the rooms, restaurant or bar it is just such a relaxed,professional and pleasant experience. It isn't the biggest or grandest hotel in London, but for me it can knock spots off the most exclusive and expensive lodgings the capital has to offer. The rooms are constantly being refreshed and are a delight. Sadly, on business there is never the time to really settle in and enjoy them, but beds, bathrooms, fittings and fixtures are all at the top of the class. Haymarket has a fantastic location, a great atmosphere and one of the buzziest public bar areas of any London hotel but if you want peace and quiet then the residents' lounge and long room are just perfect. An excellent breakfast completes things. Firmdale keep their spot at the top of the game with Haymarket!

Terrific location just a few hundred meters from Trafalgar Square, the National Gallery, and Piccadilly Cuircus, right across the street from Her majesty's Theatre. Itr's great to kick back for an hour or so in the afternoon and then head back to the National Gallery just around the corner.Lots of nearby restaurants.
We stayed five nights and had room 206, a "Luxury Jr Suite", upgraded at booking upon request from a "Deluxe" room. This is a corner room with three large windows overlooking Haymarket and the theatre but totally quiet even on Saturday night. This is a large room with comfortable king bed, desk, 2 chairs, hide-a-bed divan, coffee table, 2 chests of drawers, 4 closets, tons of space. Bathroom is great, all granite, modern with terrific shower - loads of hot water immediately. Extremely helpful staff. Restaurant good but not exceptional. All-in-all, one of the nicest hotels we've stayed in and we've been all over.

Room Tip: If you are an art afficiando, don't miss the small, world class, lovely Courtauld Gallery in Som...
