Poor

On the web, this hotel looks delightful. The foyer looks far more enticing than in reality. The room we were given was nicely equipped and comfortable, but far too small for the very large king-size bed. Why not put a smaller double bed in this room. It would give much more space for people to walk around comfortably instead of tripping over one another! The rooms downstairs were probably the cellars originally. They are dark and dreary and much too hot! The carpet in the restaurant for breakfast is disgusting - very old and dirty. The service was good enough but breakfast meals were luke-warm. Hot food should be served on hot plates! This was a special celebration outing for us, so we were rather disappointed. For a boutique hotel in Mayfair, it was poor.

The hotel was clean and well appointed. The room had a portable AC unit which had to be on constantly to keep the temperature down even in March. Otherwise the hotel lived up to its reputation.
Until the bill arrived and I found I was charged a mini bar bill of £17.50. I had no use out of this Moral: Get the hotel to check your mini bar before you check out!

My wife and I spent three nights and had a wonderful experience. William, the concierge, was the best we have encountered in numerous London stays. He was courteous, helpful, and entertaining. The hotel location is perfect: a quiet block or two off busy Piccadilly, but close to Piccadilly Circus, Green Park, the Hard Rock Cafe, and Shepherd's Market (highly recommended for restaurants and pubs by William, and us as well).

Yes, the rooms are compact, but well-organized, nicely decorated, exceedingly clean, and reasonably priced. With a little research, we found a room rate lower than most of the 3 and 4 star hotels in Mayfair.
We will definitely stay at Flemings on our next London holiday.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Flemings Mayfair Hotel

Compact yet charming - a hotel with personality

from ME13
Needing a room for a single night stay, I booked Flemings Mayfair on the day of my arrival in London. I had heard the hotel was good, but as I paid such a low rate, I was concerned I would be accommodated in a tiny cupboard of a room. However, this wasn't the case. Whilst the room I had was compact, it was cleverly so, and absolutely ideal for my needs. I feel like I got the bargain of the day. The facilities were excellent, the staff perhaps a little over-attentive for my liking, and the location just off Piccadilly was excellent. If I had paid full rate I may have been disappointed, but it was tremendous value at the bargain rate that I got, and it was so lovely to stay somewhere charming rather than somewhere that is just functional. It has real personality, something that seems to be very rare these days.

Nice Mayfair Hotel for Business Travelers

from traveltexan
My husband and I stayed several nights at the Flemings Mayfair twice in the past year (Sept 2004 and April 2005). The hotel was recently renovated and modernized, and the lobby and all of the rooms have been tastefully decorated in a sleek modern style. The 18th century building is charming, though it has some unavoidable drawbacks, like winding hallways and smaller rooms. The bathrooms in both rooms we stayed in are large and gorgeous. Robes are provided for guests. Internet access through the flat screen TV has also been installed, though we needed the staff to set it up in our room before use. The staff at the front desk is very professional and helpful.

The hotel is on a quiet street just off of Picadilly and 2 blocks from the Green Park tube station. That makes it a very convienent location to combine sightseeing, shopping and business. Just around the corner is charming Shepherds Market which has several cafes, bars and upscale restaurants. It is a comfortable area to stay in for frequent travelers.

This hotel is not cheap, so if you are a tourist I'm sure there are lots of alternative locations and prices. However, for business traveler's in the overwhelmingly expensive and ritzy Mayfair district, this hotel is priced right for the value. We look forward to return stays at the Flemings Mayfair.

Fantastic Hotel

from SueandOlivia
Just had an fab stay at Flemings - room was huge and very tastfully decorated. Breakfast was lovely and a good selection. Myself and my 6 year old daughter stayed for 2 nights over easter and it was too short.

Great location.

t stay here! Please read this review!

from A TripAdvisor Member
The hotel was a trojan horse, pretty on the outside, horrible on the inside. The staff was unbelievably incompetent and it would take me too long to list all of the problems. They kept trying, but ended up failing each time. The only pluses are the location and the breakfast room, here is an overview:

1. Asked for a quiet room not on the street or near an elevator. The first two times they gave me the above, it took an hour to get a room.

2. Woke me up an hour early the day I was leaving, 4:45 AM!

3. Alex the concierge gave me bad info on museum openings, etc. and I ended up missing out on some activities. William, the head concierge was better.

4. Room was tiny, 4 channels of TV, no movie video on demand, no high speed Internet, couldn't get to my e-mail through a dial up connection, no clocks in any of the rooms.

5. Asked for a list of health food stores. Got a list but was told the best was on a huge street in another section of London and to just go there, I should be able to find it as they didn't have the phone number or exact address! In checking with a taxi driver, he said that I never would have found it as the street is several miles long.

6. Asked for a power converter for 110 volts for my laptop. They brought up the wrong one the first two times.

Flemings ok

from ltpt
3 adult women stayed here in Oct. The room was VERY small. The beds were awful! We could barely move. The bathroom was huge-one of us could have slept in there! The lobby was beautiful. The staff were ok. The bell guys were excellent. But the location was great. I wouldn't stay there again.

Stayed at the Flemings Mayfair Hotel. Excellent!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at the Flemings Mayfair hotel. It was centrally located to everything and a 10 minute walk from Buckingham Palace. London is a fantastic city. Be aware of the difference in the Pound Sterling and the U.S. Dollar, though. It can bite you..

Excellent Hotel

from Anonymous,Devon
We stayed her in August 2004 and the hotel was excellent. The staff were friendly and very helpful. The hotel is idealy situated just a couple of minutes walk from Green Park Tube Station.
Our room was lovely, very clean and decorated to a high standard. The restaurant is superb, the price may put some people off but it is very good value for money and delicious.
We will be staying again.

Great Hotel

Great Hotel. Excellent lcoation. We stayed here in July. If you're there in the summer make sure you get a room with air conditioning. Breakfast is great.

Family Reunion Was a Hit

from jeffJBloomington
Spent four nights here with my family...8 rooms, so I feel good writing this review. The rooms were fine. By British standards, they are average in size, some with slightly larger sitting areas, with love seats, chairs, minibars and tv's. Our queen bed was fine. The bathroom is small, but adequate. My parents were in in Room 67, I believe, which was a suite. It was wonderful. Two of the 8 rooms had poor air conditioning units, and I commented on this in a survey before checking out. The English breakfast was fine, although the bacon and eggs were slightly undercooked by American standards. My three teenage children and three teenage nieces and nephews loved the hotel. The staff was very nice. We spent a few evenings in the bar and would recommend this to readers. Our rooms were clean and so were the bathrooms. I've stayed at the London Conrad, Hazzlitts, and lived in the City a year in college. This is a wonderful hotel. The location is great for walkers and joggers, just across from Green Park, and not far from Hyde Park. There are several neat pubs within 300 meters from the hotel. There are also several nice places for inexpensive lunches close by on Shephard's Lane, too. I'd stay here again in a flash. The negative reviews below wouldn't stop me from rebooking here. I would try to negotiate a rate below the current 169 pound room rate,however.

not worth the money

from A TripAdvisor Member
My mum and I stayed here last year and I have to say that it one of the worst hotels I have ever stayed in. We arrived early about 10am and were told that the room would be ready at 2pm but we could leave our bags. So we hit the shops only to come back at 3pm to be told our room was still not ready! At 5pm they allowed us to have a key to the worlds most smallest twin room I have ever seen. Only one person could walk around at any one time it was that small the beds were pushed so close together. The bathroom was a joke. The only good thing about this hotel was the location. The staff are unhelpful and rude and I for one will never return!

Top Local Tips for London

Make up a picnic ! There's a large-ish Marks & Spencer convenience foodstore very nearby, on Picadilly, near Green Park tube - high quality food and wine to take away at non-Mayfair prices !!

Day trip to Cambridge Take the day trip to Cambridge. It costs 14 pounds (roundtrip) via the Kings Cross Train station and is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. As I engineer, I marvel at the university of Newton, Hardy and Ramanjuan! You can take a 2 hour tour of the city from the town center Visitor Office for about 9 pounds (2 hour tour that gets you into some of the colleges - Kings College, etc.). A great day trip out of London

mediocre restaurants Shepherd's Market is just around the corner and it has charming ambience but all our dining there was very expensive (typical of alll London) but the quality was very ordinary and pretty flavorless no matter what ethnicity we tried. Only great meal we had was at Randall & Aubin in SOSHO,great seafood and worth the money.
