Millennium Hotel London Mayfair
Travel Blogs from London
Our last day in London! We packed, had breakfast then waited for the driver to take us to Heathrow. There were no traffic hold ups and we arrived at Heathrow, Terminal 3, in plenty of time. After checking in we sat in Singapore airlines Business Class lounge (there is another lounge for First Class passengers) and tried to ignore all the appetising …
We used the train system to visit a friend in Dorking today, first catching the Tube from Green Park to Victoria (one stop) then the Southern train line to Dorking. The train south was amazingly empty and we had a reasonably clean carriage to ourselves. Inga met us at the station. She had planned outdoors activities but the weather (cool/cold and …
We caught up with Michael who arrived yesterday. The three of us walked to the British Museum to see a fascinating exhibition about Roman Emperor Hadrian who we learned was responsible for much more than a wall. He also consolidated the Roman Empire of his time, visited many parts of the Empire, built the Pantheon and a huge villa (more a small …
Before leaving we admired Lester's "gong" and the photos of the Queen presenting his CBE to him. He was recognised for his excellent work as a senior public servant. We drove from Redhill to London; a stressful drive but we managed it. At our hotel we left our luggage, which seems to have managed to grow since we collected the car, then returned …
... an amazing journey through history. The Tower of London was built by the Normans initially as a castle to dominate London (to prevent uprisings). Eventually once England was conquered the Tower became barracks used to house criminals and prisoners. The most infamous incident to occur at the Tower was the supposed assassination of the two princes by Richard III and the beheadings of some of Henry VIII wives. We were treated to a vast array of memorabilia from the kings ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Millennium Hotel London Mayfair
Loved the Millenium Mayfair Hotel
My husband and I just returned from a trip to London. We stayed at the Millenium Mayfair Hotel. It is located adjacent to Grovesnor Square. The location was excellent and in a beautiful area of London very close to the American Embassy and to the Oxford Street shopping area. The room was very clean with the most comfortable (King) bed. Would recommend this hotel
Great Location...Fine Hotel!
I just returned from a week long stay at the hotel. It is a very fine hotel in a wonderfully central location. Shop around for some great prices. I got a deluxe room for about 80 pounds per night. Rooms vary greatly in size but are all appointed well. The first floor rooms can be noisy. I tried the upgrade for the"club privileges" for the first days and found it not worth the extra 50 pounds daily.
Very nice hotel
Adding to the chorus of positive reviews. Just got back from a week-long stay at the Millennium Mayfair (my first trip to London). The location couldn't be better--our room looked out on serene Grosvenor Square, and Mayfair is a beautiful, quiet, central London neighborhood.
Our room was sparking clean and, considering we booked at a good rate on Hotels.com, a surprisingly decent size. If you rely very heavily on a concierge, this might be a problem--we asked for some advice, and whoever was on duty was inevitably clueless. But overall, we were happy with our hotel choice.
Stayed two nights in this hotel in June 2003. It is situated in Mayfair across the street from Grosvenor Park and steps from the American Embassy. The nearest metro stop is Bond Street, which is a 10 minute walk away. The hotel is within walking distance to Buckingham Palace, and everything else in London is easily accessible by metro. The check-in staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was large and had a firm bed with a nice, soft comforter. Standard equipment included an ironing board and iron, coffee maker, television, and towel-warming rack! The bathroom was large and the shower water pressure was adequate, although there wasn't much storage space. Complimentary newspapers can be found on each floor in the morning. The only complaint is that the air conditioning was more like a fan blowing cool air for ventilation, rather than truly cold air. Overall, a solid 4* hotel in a good location.
I booked a relatively inexpensive rate (either 85 or 99 GBP) on londontown, and I really liked this hotel. It was clearly built as a very elegant hotel. It was very clean and nice. It looked like the maintenance could be slightly better. For instance, the porcelain handle on my toilet was cracked and chipped, and the Hot and Cold water knobs on the sink were reversed. However, it definitely did not feel run-down, since all of the rest of the furnishings were in good condition, very clean, and rather attractive. They provide tea and an electric tea kettle in the room. The TV picks up the BBC channels, ITV, and a relatively small number of other station. They also have some kind of WebTV access in the TV (for which there is a charge). I liked the location, although it is a bit of a hike from Leicester Square and Picadilly. It is very close to the US embassy, which had big concrete barricades in front of it. Because of the trees in Grosvenor Square, I really couldn't see much of the embassy or the barricades from my room. I stayed in room 211, which I thought was pretty good-sized by European standards. It had a beautiful view of Grosvenor Square across the street. The street in front of the hotel is rather busy during the day, i.e., it has a lot of traffic noise, but there were two sets of windows, which seemed to minimize the traffic noise. (I kind of like moderate traffic noise, anyway.) My friend stayed in room 269, which faced the courtyard in the back and which thus was quieter but not nearly so scenic. Room 211 is rather unique in being actually right off the foyer across from the elevators, not even in a hallway as almost all other rooms are. Thus, I could hear the elevator and the hallway noise a bit in my room, but I think this shouldn't be a problem with most any other room. The hotel is only a few short blocks from the Bond Street tube stop. easyInternetCafe is very close to the tube stop, so I went there for Internet access in the area - good value. Overall, I liked this hotel a lot.
We booked a deluxe room (119 GBP) and were very pleased with it- spacious, with a king-sized bed and sitting area, and a large bathroom in marble. Our window overlooked Grosvenor Square, really a small park.
Little extras in the room (scale, hairdryer, phone in bathroom) and the shower had good water pressure. Mayfair is a lovely, classy area of London to stay in, and there were several pubs, restaurants and convenience stores in walking distance. Bond Street tube is a 6 minute walk away.
A wonderful hotel in a beautiful part of London. The room was spacious enough to be comfortable, and kept very clean by efficient and friendly staff. My only complaint was that breakfast was not included in the (very reasonable) price, and was very expensive. Altogether, though, a great place to stay in London.
Really nice experience
Staying at the Millennium Mayfair for our first trip to England was great. The hotel is very nice and is in a convenient location. There is a convenience store right around the corner and also a great breakfast/tea place called Richoux. The hotel room was small but comfortable and clean and quiet with a great cozy comforter! I would definitely stay here again.
Great Hotel! My wife and I booked here sight unseen and I was a little concerned I'd be disappointed once I checked in. Our concerns were not realized and if you want good accommodations in a quiet, yet central location near great shopping, parks, and neighborhoods check out this hotel.
Just returned from a 6 day visit of London. We stayed at the this hotel based on a truly great rate and its great location. We had an extra large room with King sized bed and a sofa bed for our son. Plenty of room. The bathroom was all marble with a complete tub and separate shower! A first for us in europe. The hotel is just across from the American Embassy and within minutes you can be on Oxford Street, New Bond, or Regent. Just be sure to tell your taxi driver to take you to the Britannia. Our documents didn't have that listed and ours took us somewhere else first.
