                    I loved the location of the Mayfair Hotel, was great for celeb spotting!! The Spa was also lovely although I only had a massage, and the Afternoon Tea was yummy :-)

                    Was a bit disappointed with the service of some of the staff in the bar and the grill. One night although they took our drink order, we waited ages until getting the drinks, and they seemed more intent on making sure the 'celebs' got theirs first!

                    Breakfast is delicious

                    They did not apologize when we discovered that they wrongfully had submitted a taxi note of 120 pounds to our invoice.

                    Convenient location to West End. Great Spa and Casino with reasonably priced food.DISCOUNTED Parking worth £24 for overnight stay, worth its weigh in gold-literally.Spacious rooms with Tea/coffee making facilities which is a pleasing change for 5* hotels.

                    Great location. Supermarket across the street and the Underground less than 100 metres. The bars and restaurant had a good vibe. I didn't eat there - they were rather expensive!

                    Be very careful owhen checking in. The hotel blocked on my credit card almost double the actual cost of the hotel and did not at any stage inform me they were blocking that amount (ie total cost of hotel plus total cost of hotel). It was more than 1000 pounds. You can imagine my horror when I realised why when I had difficulty with my credit card! The hotel also will charge you for items which should not be chargeable - ie asking information from concierge, booking taxi etc. The hotel also is rather warm and the airconditioning is too hot. The hotel has a distinct aftershave smell which is overpowering. It is fine if you are a Sloan Street toy boy who loves cologne but not otherwise.

                    The staff were polite and helpful

                    People down the hall were allowed to burn incense in there room....into the hall! It felt like a large impersonal hotel. Not a 5 star. The room was over priced.

                    The location

                    Too much scent in the hotel everywhere. From the odor of curry that was pervasive in the hotel, the rooms everywhere to the constant heavy perfume in the lobby. I had a full blown allergy attack every time I entered or exited the hotel. Also the clientele is 90% mideastern.

                    The staffs are friendly. The location is near to station, palace and shopping area.

                    Room cleaning was late.

                    We liked the location, the hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful

                    However there was a really bad smell of cigerette smoke coming into our room (No 360) it was very strong and came in from the air conditioning in the bathroom, we didn't go to our room until 5.00pm we did notice a smell of smoke but the window had been left open by house keeping, when we closed it the smell got worse in fact I could not sleep and ended up with a sore throat, but my husband being a sound sleeper and an ex smoker was not affected as much. I had to leave the window open all night just to get some fresh air. In the morning before breakfast we told the staff about the smoke, They acted promptly by getting the air conditioning switched off etc. The next night I slept better and the smell of cigerette smoke was much reduced,However the room did not smell fresh (Stale cigerette smoke) and my throat was still sore. But on a lighter note we did enjoy our meal at Quince....
