Historical Traveler Reviews Flemings Mayfair London
Great location - friendly staff
We stayed at the Flemings Mayfair from 19 April - 23 April 2004.
The positives: terrific location, only 2 blocks from the Green Park tube, easy and very pleasant walk through Green and St. James Parks to Buckingham Palace, very convenient for the West End (either by a long walk or by tube). We found all the staff to be quite friendly and helpful. Our room was comfortable, two twin beds (as requested) with a small sitting area. Fine bathroom, though the tub was very deep, use the handles! Plenty of hot water. Never a problem or long wait with the 1 elevator.
Disappointments: buffet breakfast is only a cold breakfast and selection dwindles very quickly. Housekeeping was spotty, especially with the bathroom. Some used towels not replaced, just re-folded. Curtains could have used a vacuuming (very dusty). Maintenance glitch - floor lamp didn't have a bulb. We didn't mind only 5 TV channels, some would. Surprisingly loud street noise, soundproofing not great.
We would stay at the Flemings Mayfair again if we had our size room or larger, though we won't book the buffet breakfast package.
Good Location, Lousy Room
I stayed here in April 2004. I got a last minute deal through a well known website, so only paid £55 per night, instead of the rack rate of £169 for a single. Had I paid the full rate, I would have demanded my money back. In order to get to the room, I had to negotiate a labyrinth of hallways and stairs. Thankfully, I only had one bag with me. The room itself was small and stuffy, with a single bed. I was able to open the window, but never got it to close again. The street outside, was surprisingly noisy, so I ended up switching on the airconditioning to create some white noise, and cool the room down a bit. I was unable to double lock the door, which resulted in a maid coming into my room without knocking, even though I had the "do not disturb" in place. Not all toiletries were replenished on a daily basis, and the washcloth that was there when I arrived, was never replaced. In order to get to the safe in the wardrobe, I had to move the television. There was no minibar and the pay tv option wasn't available. There were only 4 channels, plus CNN. There was only one elevator, and that was broken on one of the days I stayed there. The location of this hotel is excellent, but I wouldn't consider it to be 4 star.
Flemings Mayfair Hotel, Great Location
Clean, fashionable and what a convenient location. Just one-half block off of Picadilly Circle (so not noisy) and one block to Green Park Station (London Underground). It is also one block from the Ritz Hotel which is a pick-up place for any bus tours, the Hop-on, Hop-off bus or the Evans-Evans tours which take day trips outside of London (ie, Stonehedge, Warwick Castle). The price includes breakfast and the concierge(s) are just jumping at the chance to answer any questions you may have. I would stay here again but only if I had some sort of airfare-hotel deal. The board behind reception said it was 269 pounds/night for a double so it is only affordable if your stay is bundled up in some sort of package deal.
We loved it!
I have just returned from a 5 day stay at Flemings with my mother and my 13 year old son. We were given a large twin room with a pull out couch on which I slept quite comfortably. The bathroom was clean and spacious and the buffet breakfast was just lovely. The staff were extremely pleasant and always welcome to answer any queries. We had booked as a package through Virgin Vacations so our breakfast inclusive room rate was astonishing low. We had done a similar but lower priced Virgin package last year at the Barkston Gardens but the small incremental price for Flemings was well worth the investment.
We didn't stay!
After reading the great reviews of the Flemings, we thought we had discovered a "find". We arrived late at night after our trans-Atlantic flight. The lobby of the hotel put me on guard. It was very tired looking and not particularly clean. We were escorted up the elevator and down a long, long hall (which got dirtier the further we went) to the end where two rooms were opened for us. They both were VERY cramped. The furniture was mismatched, old, and some actually broken.
The lock on one door did not work, it's window opened to an air shaft, the heat was blazing and there was no way to turn it down or A.C.. The other room was equally shabby. It's heat was a large,stand-alone unit on the floor that was very loud. The bathroom stank of urine. My husband went back down to the front desk to ask for different rooms - there were none. I made calls to other hotels and got a reservation at 47 Park Street. We left. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. It is too expensive to be this poorly maintained.
My wife and I, together with our teenage daughter and a friend stayed at No. 13 Half Moon Street for 6 nights over New Years. Our penthouse apartment (2 BR, 2 1/2 baths) was lovely. The apartment was quite comfortable, the kitchen was nicely outfitted and the overall setting was wonderful. Set on a quiet street in Mayfair, near to the tube and to wonderful shopping, we could not have been more pleased with our choice. We have stayed at many first class hotels around the world and our apartment at No. 13 did not disappoint.
I love this hotel. The Flemings Mayfair is definitely my choice when staying in London. It's location is fantastic, only a couple minutes walk from Green Park tube station; and Mayfair is a splendid area just to waltz around and do a little bit of window shopping (and starbucks!). The staff are absolutely lovely; you cannot fault them.
Very friendly, helpful, and will go out of their way to help you. I have visited a couple times this year and the rooms I had were comfortable and clean and a place I feel I could relax. My only bad point would be the hotel bar....around £4 for a Cola!?! Would definitely visit again.
Lovely hotel, lovely location!
Stayed at the Flemmings Mayfair hotel April 2002 with my husband. A fantastically located hotel in probably the nicest area of London-just off Picadilly. The nightlife of Soho and Theatreland is a 20-25 minute walk away and Oxford street is about 15 minutes walk away. Green Park is the nearest tube station a few minutes walk away and there are a few small supermarkets within the vicinity for snacks/drinks etc. There is a Hard Rock Cafe a few minutes walk away on Picadilly. Hotel appears to be small but cosy as you walk into the reception area. A porter assists you with your luggage and the lift if required. We had an executive room which was surprisingly small but clean. Decorated in yellow and blue with a small double bed and a sofa plus a nice white and black tiled bathroom with bathrobes. I have to say the bathroom was quite dirty with mould on the tiles and the pipes at the back of the sink and toilet were rusty.
A wonderful hotel!
My sister and I stayed in an apartment at 13 Half Moon Street, a part of the Flemings Mayfair hotel. It was unbelievably wonderful. The apartment was beautifully decorated and everything about the apartment was top notch. From the fresh flowers, basket of fruit and breakfast provisions, they looked after us in a way that we both loved.
We stayed there for three days in early September, 2003, and then two more nights in early October. It was our favorite place to stay in all of England. The staff is wonderful and was extremely accommodating. We got good rates on the two bedroom, two bath apartment with living room and kitchen--keep looking for specials as they can be found. Ask for apartment 704--it's just lovely.
Fleming mayfair hotel
my wife and I just got back from a trip to London. We used to go on a fairly regular basis, but have not been back for approximately 5 years. I checked internet sites this time and discovered the Fleming Mayfair Hotel off of Picadilly Street and five minutes away from the Green Park Tube station. It was an excellent choice. The room was large with a sitting area with sofa, table and chair, plus tv. The bed was a double. The bathroom was nicely appointed. Very smart lobby and commen areas for all guests. The breakfast, which was included with our room rate of 99 pounds per nights was of the highest standard, english breakfast, plus buffet. Our room faced the street which was ok with us, but we live in a city. So street noice even with double glazed windows, book the rear room in the hotel.

... religious parishioners in there lighting pencil like candles, constantly queuing to pray to icons in there, kissing them, constantly crossing themselves and bowing to these icons. There was a special service talking place during our visit, so we lingered for about 20 minutes to get some idea of it all. We had been told in our notes to bring scarves with us to cover our heads in these Orthodox churches, as all the locals wore them. We obliged.
From there we went to Yusupov Palace, ...
... to save some memories.
I wanted to show Ruth my favourite restaurant and they happened to have one in London. We went to Piccadilly Circus, which is London's equivalent to New York's Time Square, so we could eat at the Rainforest Café! We took a step inside where there was an animatronic crocodile in a mist thrashing about to greet us. We walked downstairs into the restaurant area where the ceiling was covered in leaves and there ...
Friday: today we had to catch the bus to the ferry after breakfast was meant to be at 7:30 but got changed to 9:30 due to the strikes at Calais port with all the refugees trying to get into trucks and hide and try to get to the UK so we changed ports and the boat didn't leave till 3 so we were on that for ...
... us where we needed to go. The Tube is so neat! There are multiple lines that can get you anywhere you need to go in London, some of them way deep down in the ground, so you have to take multiple escalators, or climb many steps to get to them. I highly recommend using The Tube to anyone who travels to London.
Once we arrived at the stop that The British Museum was at, we headed in. Entry is free to The British Museum, so naturally it was very crowded. They had on display ...
It's amazing how much you can gain out of life just from going on a walk in the park.
The weather was sunny today, and although colder than I would have liked, sun always gets me out of bed.
So I dressed up warmly and went to Hyde Park...one of the central parts of London that makes you forget that you are in a city of 11 million people.
