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
A great location and less expensive for this higher priced London area, central to most of the main sites. A smaller hotel on a quiet street off of Piccadilly and across from Green Park. Staff and service were excellent.
Had a really nice visit at this hotel. Great breakfast buffet and staff is very helpful. The location is awesome for changing of the guard, shopping, and the iconic London landmarks. Rooms a bit small but normal for London.
Very good place to stay, excellent location, good food and very nice accommodations , friendly staff , very near the underground and shopping center and good streets , would stay again. Very comfortable.
The location, staff and hotel were just wonderful. Highly recommend staying here. The hotel was clean and the staff were very friendly. The Manetta Bar was lovely and we enjoyed our stay here. We will stay here next time we are in London. Thank you for everything!
I have been delighted to stay in this hotel on April 15-17th except that I had the bad surprise on my return to see on my bank account that 28 pounds have been charged by mistake !
During the check-in process, I gave my credit card for a pre approved payment but I have been promised that the amount of 24 GBP would not be debited from my account.
Well I guess this check-in process did not work properly at all and I advise any traveller to double check their bank account after a stay in Flemings Mayfair
I did not find the reception desk very reactive when I sent an email to be reimbursed.
Therefore I give a yellow card via my notation.
