Sandwiched between Hyde Park and Green Park, and steps from Mayfair’s high-end boutiques and boozers, this 129-room hotel is traditional and quirky in equal measure. Dating from 1730, thirteen interconnecting townhouses were converted into a hotel in 1851, and this charming boutique sits on a quintessential London street complete with wrought iron street lamps. Inside, you’ll find a funky cocktail bar, afternoon tea rooms and a stylish restaurant. Flock wallpaper, brightly hued walls, Murano glass chandeliers and scented candles provide a warm welcome and an intimate vibe.
Bed & Bath
Guest rooms vary, but all have a distinctive Flemmings feel. Classic Doubles are petite, at around 229 square feet, and feature a work desk. Executive Doubles offer a little more lounge room, and in the apartments you can make believe you’re a Mayfair resident, cooking up a storm in your very own kitchen. Some of the bathrooms are on the small side, but most feature both a tub and shower, and the products are courtesy of luxury British brands.
The on-site restaurant, Flemings Grill, is tucked away in the dark, sultry basement, where seasonal British ingredients feature heavily on the menu. For lighter bites head to the the Drawing Room which pays homage to the hotel’s 18th century origins. Here you’ll find traditional champagne or chocoholic afternoon teas, hosted in partnership with the East India Tea Company. There’s no spa, but the hotel has a partnership with the Michael John Salon and Spa nearby, and there’s a small gym equipped with all the necessary fitness gadgets, including a Power plate.
In the Area
You’re a short walk from Green Park, which backs onto Buckingham Palace Gardens, and Hyde Park, one of the city’s most popular green spaces, where you can boat on the lake, ride along ancient horse trails or swim in the Serpentine Lido. Stroll Mayfair’s boutique-lined streets and pop into Dover Street Market, a multilevel hipster store adored by fashion editors, or head to Fortnum & Mason to gawk at the food hall. Shopping thoroughfares Oxford Street, Bond Street and Regents Street are all within strolling distance, and for a spot of culture, walk along Piccadilly to the Royal Academy for blockbuster art shows.
How to Get There
The hotel is victorian style with great service from the time the bellman let's you out of your cab. Larger than usual size rooms for a European Hotel with large bathtubs. Bars and restaurants ;are excellent.
Was here for 2 weeks on a work trip. Sent a very nice sweater for dry-cleaning and it came back many sizes smaller. They insisted nothing was wrong with it, which was incredibly insulting. Wouldn't even refund me the small dry cleaning charge.
Other than that the room was nice.
The staff is very friendly and the location is great. However, the first room that I was given had a very musty smell in the bathroom and the shower had dark stains at the bottom tiles that appeared to be mold. The
Our check in experience was not the best but everything else was top-notch! The room was lovely, the bar was quaint and quiet. The breakfasts were fabulous as well as the wait staff. I would definitely stay here again!
Lovely experience, particularly enjoyable surroundings in beautiful Drawing Room. Friendly staff, very happy with visit. Returning to London in August and will not hesitate to rebook directly with hotel. Highly recommended.
