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
Professional & helpful staff, superb service, enviable location, great food, spotless and stylish decor, quiet neighbourhood despite being mere metres from Piccadilly, Green Park Tube Station and a 5 min walk from Buckingham Palace
A lot of arrogant staff. No space to sit on the bed. Very expensive rate. Room size is very small. No service mind. All staff dress well. All areas are very clean. You can easily hear the noise from other rooms.
This hotel was nothing like the photos. Room was dirty and completely different. The shower and drain kept backing up at random parts of the very short showers we took. Wondering if better rooms were located in another VERY different part of the hotel.
We have just stayed at Fleming’s for the past 5 nights. It is a lovely elegant small hotel in a superb location. Accommodations excellent. Food at the hotel way above typical- even for a luxury hotel. But the highlight was the absolutely stellar service from all staff( and there are plenty). Every single staff member jumped to be of service right up to the GM who came to check in on us twice after we had our credit cards stolen in a pub the first night. ( incredible. No idea how someone pulled it off). The front desk helped us address that problem until 2am our first night. They were lovely especially Catalina. The GM was at our breakfast table first thing the next morning offering any support required. The concierge staff was the best we’ve encountered. Through multiple emails before we came they arranged perfect show tickets and other recommendations. Once at the hotel their dinner recommendations were excellent ( which we also find to be rare). Andrew and Ryan at the concierge desk were highly professional and efficient. I would highly recommend Fleming’s. Elegant but not stuffy environment. Hard to imagine doing better.
The hotel is certainly an impressive sight and you cannot fault any of the staff who seem to make every effort to make you feel at home and make your stay as nice as possible. We had a deluxe room which while perfectly adequate was somewhat pokey and on the ground floor and had minor issues such as watermarks around the shower controls (ie limescale that has built up and hasn't been cleaned off)..other than that the rooms are of nice quality and very clean. I have to say the only thing I found slight aggravated me was the breakfast (c£22) which was for the "continental" selection....which when you viewed the continental selection wasn't much of a selection which mean most guests would be forced to pay the extra for a cooked English breakfast...which is £6 per person, yes its not excessive but for £22 I think most hotels in London can manage a cooked breakfast ...especially when Flemmings are trying to trade off their old world English charm. The cooked breakfast was however very good but if we stayed again we would take a walk around the area to find breakfast out.
