8/10
Very central location in a posh area!

I was there on business for 3 days in September. The hotel was beeing refurbished due to a change of ownership (formerly the Millenium Mayfair). They didn't have any double rooms left so i was upgraded to a suite on a smoking floor (i don't smoke but i couldn't resist!). The suite was very big, huge bed, nice bathroom. The staff was nice and professional. So not much to complain about. If you have money to spend and want a central location. Go for the Edwardian Mayfair!

Disappointing

What a disappointment. I was expecting great things from this Hotel. It did not start well when we tried to book in AFTER our appointed time to be told there would be a 45 minute wait because housekeeping had not cleaned the room. Made it clear this was unacceptable and was given another room. This room looked at a brick wall.
The room was also quite small and the lighting was not good. I had to get ready for a concert in the evening and there was no dressing table in the room. The room was excessively hot and we were unable to get it to a comfortable temperature. Furniture in the room was a little tired and the wardrobe doors exceedingly noisy to open and close. There was also a lack of suitcase rack and so had to leave the suitcase on the floor which got in the way.
The bathroom also was nothing special, hardly luxurious. Towels were situated on the furthest wall from the handbasin, not at all convenient. Also the bath was quite narrow, and anyone much larger than myself would be in danger of getting wedged in it. It was also very slippery and dangerous when having a shower.
Finally the hotel website states a discount with the Carrington NCP car park a short distance away. A card is obtained fron the concierge which should discount the car park fee to £20 a day. On leaving, we inserted the card into the car park pay machine to be told it was not valid. We were not the only ones to have this happen to. We had no time to go back to the hotel and we cantacted the hotel was by email (after having to pay the full fee) and have as yet heard nothing from them.
All in all not what I expected from their website and especially from a 5 star hotel.

Mayfair Has It All for This Sightseer!

For a great price, I had a beautiful, clean, quiet room with a tremendously luxurious bath and walk-in closet. The staff was very courteous and attentive, and there's a Starbucks right down the street! Close to everything, but far enough from the maddening crowd to permit a good night's sleep. And the bed was heavenly. Highly recommended for visitors to London!

A hotel that promised much but delivered little. The service and attention to detail was woefully inadequate. Rooms re-furbished but dim lighting and abscence of dressing table confusing to say the least. Breakfast chaotic and poor. Does not compare at all to other 5 star establishments and poorer than some 4 star London hotels.

Lousy Parking and noisy rooms!

Stayed at the Radisson Mayfair for one night, staff was friendly and helpful but the room let them down. Badly insulated room (7th floor) we still could hear clearly the traffic outside and an elevator room (or something) next door that didn't let us sleep (room 702 to be avoided!).
Parking (At Holiday Inn) was outrageously overpriced, room had tea/coffee facilities but no biscuits or anything to have with it (Any B&B would have that), obviously room service provided them but you don't expect the hassle of calling room service for a biscuit, do you?
Ah! forgot the detail of having to cue for breakfast, they clearly couldn't cope with so many of us turning up for a little bite in the morning, not to mention that when we were offered the table there were still left overs from the previous guests. I am not ususally so fussy about these things but I expect a 5 star hotel to take care of details.

Rgds.

Ps: £45 overnight parking is not a detail for me bytheway.

Had a family weekend in London and stayed there as a treat, and WOW it was. Most of the major refurbishment's now complete. Massive delux family room with top quality furniture and upholstery. Highly recommended, also fabulous food and service in the Amba bar and grill.

Historical Traveller Reviews of Mayfair Radisson Edwardian Hotel

Oldfashioned, but the location is great

from FlyingFinn
I was treated very well, the receptionist were friendly, but the hotel and room quite oldfashioned with clear signs of heavy use. I had a deluxe size room, which was very spacious, but looking at the fire escape map one could see that the average rooms were not really big.
The location is great, and just walking one could go everywhere in the centre. And yes, the prices of the minibar were out of this earth...

Crap

from A TripAdvisor Member
5 star. Nowhere near. Impolite staff, shower set of the fire alarm in the morning, ?35 to park your car for a day, decor nothing special and to top it all off -a fictional mini bar charge. Go somewhere else.

Bad Hotel, Great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff, specially the concierges were unhelpful. Can you imagine a concierge that could not get a Valentine?s day dinner reservation ANYWHERE in London with 24hs in advance? We got better off by calling one of our top choices ourselves. The room was spacious but needs urgent renovation. The location is great, and there?s a great supermarket right outside the main entrance.

A big let down

from A TripAdvisor Member
My boyfriend and I booked a night at the hotel for a treat and to have a little break. My disappointment started from the minute I walked in.
I found the reception staff not particularly friendly. But the worst bit was when I walked into my King size deluxe room. My face dropped (and believe me I am not a particularly overly fussy person) the first thing I noticed was a picture missing from the wall (ceiling to floor) which left a huge mark and nail holes, clearly visible. I then looked at the bed which was..no other way to explain it, SUNKEN in the middle.
The bathroom was TINY and had little black marks all over the tiles (which I tried to wipe away in case it was dried blood or something but they wouldn't budge) these could have easily been painted over. The movie choice was limited to what day you were staying and to certain times, stupid really. One of the other things that really bugged me was the lift button to go down didn't work so anytime I wanted to go down I had to press the up and ask those in the lift to send it down or use the stairs (which is fine by me but I could have had an injury that prevented me unless in an emergency) when I mentioned it to a member of staff in the hall way he just shrugged his shoulders and smiled...I would NOT recommend this hotel.

excellent location

from A TripAdvisor Member
The location of the hotel is excellent. My room (at the seventh and last floor) was rather large: on the contrary the bathroom was small (not tiny) and not very good. The hall is elegant, even if not very large. The breakfast is satisfactory. Perhaps 5 stars are too many, but the overall opinion is undoubtedly good.

No complaint but...........

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went with great expectations as the name and location speaks for itself. I was disappointed from the start with no one to greet me at the door or help with luggage. No one member of staff smiled and 'made my day' which is what a 5 star experience is supposed to be about. The room was huge and the beds were fantastic. The bathroom, as with so many London hotels, leaves a lot to be desired - clean but old and showering with a shower curtain glueing itself to my body is not fun.
Thrilled to have tried it but have not bothered since, nor will again.
Hopefully now the hotel has been taken over (only just happened a week before my stay) things will improve and give that 'feel good' factor.

Old fashioned, disappointing hotel

from rimedio
I was in London for a weekend few days ago, and we decided to get a room in this hotel. It seemed to be ok on the web site, but the actual room was so old and old-deco I would not book the room if knew about this. They moved us to another room due problems with the AC system, so we got a bigger room on floor 1, windows faced a brik wall and pipes (Ive read this also on some reviews before) On the other hand I have to admit the hotel is perfectly located. Im neutral about the service. I would NOT repeat this hotel, I would try other with the same rate (150 pounds)

very satisfied, great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
We returned from London on Oct. 29, 2003 after staying this hotel.

We were very satisfied with the hotel and the convenient location.

If you are used to hotels like the Fairmont, Mark Hopkins, Sir Francis Drake, and Hilton in San Francisco, you will feel comfortable in this hotel.

If you are used to staying at newer hotels in the U.S. like Marriott, Renaissance, Sheraton, you may feel that this hotel seems old.

We were very happy with the accomodations, bedding, furnishings, and spacious bathroom.

The internet access in the business center was very good.

The staff was as good or better than many U.S. hotels.

The location was very convenient to the grocery store, drug store, sandwich shops, the tube, and fine restaurants.

There was some noise from a club across the street, but not bad for a large city.

Fabulous location. Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Mayfair Intercontinental was taken over by Radisson Hotels about a month or so ago.

My husband and I went to London for 5 days this month and stayed at the Mayfair Radisson. The location is fabulous. You are in walking distance to many tourist sites, restaurants, and shops. The hotel may not have been a true top notch 5 star, but it was very nice. Our room was very pleasant, staff was very accommodating, and the business center was easy to access. We would definitely stay there again.

Certainly Not 5 Stars

from A TripAdvisor Member
We drove up to the entrance of the hotel and expected to be approached by someone to park the car (Valeted Parking) this didn`t happen so parked illegally outside the hotel. When we asked we were told "Oh we don`t have any parking ,you have go round the corner to the Holiday Inn". Then when we tried to take our bags (no porters offered)to our rooms. "You`re not thinking of leaving it there" the Concierge rudely called to us. Talk about making us feel really small. The rooms were adequate but certainly not luxury - our supposed Superior king sized bed was a very regular double size. The windows were double glazed but the Saturday night revellers outside kept us awake until about 3am. The receptionists seemed harrassed and unfriendly(apart from the pleasant girl who checked us in). The 10m swimming pool beckoned ,disappointment - it was really cold and very cloudy. Quite a nice little gym though. We had booked dinner for 7pm in the Hotels Opus 70 Restaurant. I was not expecting anything great by this stage.... surprise surprise it was Excellent! Friendly and welcoming with very good food. We had a wonderful Anniversary dinner and our 2 girls (10 and 15) were made to feel really special. Mustafa was our waiter and he was humorous chatty and friendly. I had seared scallops with spinach and breast of guinea fowl wrapped in bacon.The girls had steak and Chicken Breast My partner was slightly less enthusiastic about the Sea Bass . Puddings were superb Warm chocolate tart with pistacho ice cream -gorgeous. As I had booked with Lastminute we got 50% off the food. Excellent value and a memorable evening that helped us forget the hotels weaker points!

Top Local Tips for London

Save money on the Underground With 1 ride on the underground now costing 4GBP (8.00USD) the best way to save money is with either an Oyster Card (3GBP deposit which is refundable) and you can load it as needed. Each ride on the underground would be 1.50GBP. (Zone 1 & 2) You can also buy a One Day or multi day Peak or Off Peak travel card. The off peak one day is 5.25GBP and that is valid after 9:30am in zones 1 & 2 for unlimited rides on underground and buses including night buses.

Taxi to and from Heathrow Book a mini-cab in advance on the Internet to receive you. It worls out a lot cheaper than getting a black cab at the airport when you land!

Get Around For Less This hotel is situated just 200yds from Green Park Tube - Picadilly, Victoria, Jubilee lines - perfect location to get around most of Central London - pricey cab? Don't use them. £5 buys you a one day travelcard - use it - could be the best fiver you ever spend!
