London’s chic Mayfair has long been a favorite with visitors to the city for its upscale atmosphere and proximity to top sights. At The Washington Mayfair Hotel, you’ll enjoy a heft dose of both. Constructed in 1913, this modern abode maintains much of the style and opulence of its Art Deco origins. Its restaurant serves high-end international cuisine, as well as delicious afternoon teas of finely crafted cakes, sandwiches and scones with lavish helpings of clotted cream. At the bar, you’ll find an extensive list of wines, champagnes and cocktails, while the large bedrooms are light and elegant.
You’ll also be perfectly located for exploring the bustling capital. The hotel is just a stone’s throw from such major attractions as Hyde Park, Buckingham Palace and Bond Street, and a short walk from the top shopping and entertainment areas of Oxford Street, Regent Street and Shaftesbury Avenue. So whether you’re here to soak up some sumptuous surroundings or experience the best of what London has to offer, you won’t be disappointed.
Superior rooms offer an elegant space, with dark-wood furnishings and a leather king-sized bed. The luxurious en-suite bathroom has both a bath and power shower.
Madisons Restaurant offers a classic menu and excellent wine list. The food is a mixture of nostalgic British and modern international flavors, offering an easy dining choice in the heart of Mayfair. Afternoon tea is popular here, and Madisons Bar is a stylish spot for relaxed drinks.
The hotel is located on Curzon Street, one of the most fashionable addresses in Mayfair. Just doors away is the Curzon Mayfair Cinema, London’s swankiest picture house, complete with royal box and wine bar. Green Park station is a few minutes’ walk from the hotel entrance and Hyde Park is not much further. Staying here, you’re also excellently positioned for reaching the shops of Regent Street and Oxford Circus, as well as Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly.
How to Get There
A particular disappointment was that upon arrival, they provided a lower category room than in the reservation, and even at the same price. We booked a Deluxe room with twin beds, and provided a standard room with one bed. The cost was not counted, as a result, the standard room was just an extra bed. in a room of 20 sq.m there was a large bed and an extra one. Like this? At the reception they promised to change the room, but this did not happen. We will definitely not stay at this hotel anymore. And you are not advised. Stayed for one night, but the rest was spoiled.
Good points: great location, friendly and welcoming staff. Good size room and bathroom. Firm and comfortable bed.
Bad points: noise... acoustics are awful, can hear people in the corridors, neighbouring rooms. Windows would not close, hence traffic noise disturbances throughout the night.
Breakfast is not included in the rates, not willing to pay a further 10% on top of the room rate. Thankfully there are decent cafes nearby.
I can highly recommend the Washington-Mayfair Hotel and unequivocally state that they have consistently delivered over many years of my visits. Of course, the property is brilliantly located but the staffing team from booking, check-in, management, housekeeping and room service have never once disappointed - they are wholly professional and go the extra mile. They have made us feel as if our visits matter as their very welcomed guests. I have always found the rooms and facilities to be well-appointed, modern and very clean to high standards. I don't bother ever looking to stay elsewhere when we're in London!
