Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lacinium1 Exellent location and good service
This hotel is in a great location for Central London trips.
I've stayed there for pleasure and with the family. The hotel was quiet, clean, and we all enjoyed the breakfast, although the good service there was not always perfect.
Nice places to eat and the Tube are within easy walking distance.
Room is pleasant,bed is comfortable and location is excellent, at walking distance to Westminster, V&A, British museum, Buckingham palace and Hyde Park .

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tatui Great position
We have stayed at this property for a week, 5 years ago. We don't particularly like the hotel, but we love the position. We found front desk staff not very welcoming. We arrived, got handled our key and that was it.
The rooms are just as we remembered, very dated; the fridge is overstocked, so no room to put anything in. Our bathroom, although large, is very dated and the taps in the basin are hard to work. We very nearly cold scalded several times. The fact that you have old, non-mixer taps, which don't work as you turn them on, then gush out, can be very dangerous. No one uses them anymore! Same applies to shower curtains. There’s also mould around the taps.
Internet at 5 pounds an hour was ridiculous. We travelled for 3 weeks around Italy, before arriving in London and had free Wi-Fi included at all of the hotels we stayed at.
Breakfast gets very boring after a couple of days, as there's no variety. It's convenient that we can have it downstairs. Please give your guess the choice of using cups, rather than mugs.
I still recommend the hotel to friends and family, due to the fantastic position. My sister-in-law and family stayed there on our recommendation for a week in September last year.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Graham76 Great location not so great stay
Location of the hotel was excellent for strolls around nearby parks, simple to visit shops or go sight seeing. The stay was not the best experience I have had, as the TV did not work for first day and half, service for food in the bar was slow, although food itself was above average,. The staff were friendly when required.

Start with the assumption that London is expensive, and you realize that this is a great location with spacious rooms at a price well below its neighbors.

As a regular guest at this hotel I was aware of its perfect location and the friendly and efficent staff. I was plesantly surprised however to be assigned a newly redecorated room. The improved room made a great hotel even better. I will continue to use the Mayfair Holiday Inn as my London home.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by meggs1104 EXCELLENT CUSTOMER SERVICE
We stayed at this Hotel for my Husband's 50th Birthday treat and we took our two teenager children and stayed one night. The hotel is very central and easy to reach any places of interest easily. The hotel adjacent to The Ritz at the bottom of the road, a lovely quiet area. The customer service we received was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff and all the family enjoyed our stay here. They made you feel welcome and special. A very nice treat! The room was lovely and clean and the beds were very comfortable. The bathroom was clean and ok but not a wow factor. The breakfast was very good with plenty of choice and an abundance of food with every need catered for. Above all the hotel staff and services was outstanding. Also, a birthday card, a bottle of wine and a bowl of fruit was sent up by the Duty Manager which was a lovely touch and made my husband smile. Thank you for a lovely stay, we shall be back

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FridaysChild Fantastic staff and a great location
As well as the best location for London visits, the staff at this hotel bring the Holiday Inn brand to a new level, making sure they welcome guests as if they were old friends. The bar and restaurant serves high-quality food and beverage, and the rooms are comfortable and well-equipped. The staff really make all the different to a hotel stay, and Holiday Inn should be proud of this property.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jules90604 Great Location and Staff but Shabby Room
The site we booked through says this is a 4-star hotel. The location and staff are definitely 4-star. It's conveniently located next to the Green Park station and great nearby sights. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. But that's where the rating stars end. The room we stayed in was shabby, bathroom is in desperate need of a remodel, and forget about free WIFI in the hotel lobby or public areas. The bathroom fixtures have tabs stating "Grovesvenor 1924" as if to be charming or antique. Perhaps the fixtures truly are from 1924 because the knobs and water flow were not modern... The shower was okay but to take a bath, the cold water flow was a mere trickle which took forever to fill. The ceiling had a slow water drip coming from somewhere (likely a water leak coming from the room above us). I didn't complain because we arrived late in the day, had unpacked and didn't want the four of us to uproot. Overall, the stay was fine but this IS NOT a 4-star hotel. If you view it as a clean place to sleep in a good location with friendly hotel employees then you'll be fine.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Oldbutyoung Convenient central situation
Have stayed here a few times as the hotel's position cannot be beaten. Central for buses and the underground. Helpful staff. Comfortable, clean room, if a little tired. It would benefit from some refurbishment. The breakfast is very good and the one dinner we ate in the restaurant was also a good meal. Will stay again.

Best location in London, with Green Park tube station just around the corner, which makes London reacheable within a few minutes.
The rooms are rather old and need to be 'freshed up', but overall nice and clean. After all, a very relaxing stay...
Staff is very friendly and helpfull : One of our 6 rooms we stayed in wasn't ready at check-in time, so they upgraded to an executive room (with plenty of space).
We only had a reservation with breakfast, which was simple, but very nice...

This was our third time in this hotel and I never tire of going
Room comfortable and cleaned every day, lovley fluffy towels, a nice clean smell on the corridors, requested were met for extra towels
Good breakfast where you can eat as much as you want, staff very attentive
Location is brilliant, a few steps away from Green Park tube station, a nice walk through Green Park brings you to Buckingham Palace
The bar is London prices, but very comfortable at night with bar snacks available

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MPM59 Romantic Getaway
Being on a romantic getaway it is unfortunate that the staff can not read the quantity of guests that will be in the room. By which I mean when two people check into a room why is only one bath robe provided? If there are two guests there should be two robes and slippers provided. You should not have to phone for housekeeping!!
Hoovers and housekeeping trollies were left in the halls all night. These could have been put away.
On the plus side there is a safe provided in the room.

We was greeted by a very helpful concierge who helped us with parking and luggage. He also gave us a map of the area which was gratefully received.
Bed was extremely hard and the central heating system could be heard all night even when thermostat was turned right down. This meant we didn't sleep very well at all.
Was served the wrong drink from the bar in the evening and was then was expected to pay for it?!? Barman's response was did you not want it then??

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RigaM Very good experience
We spent 2 nights in a family room (2 queen beds). The hotel is perfectly situated to visit London. The Room was confortable and very clean. Really excellent. The personnel was friendly and willing to help and very good common facilities. Also breakfast was at a reduced price! We will surely go back!
Only a piece of advise to the management: the bathroom was clean and working, but a little out of date: separate taps should be replaced by mixers some day... anyway, thank you for making our stay in London nicer and for your kind help!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mich11 Clean and comfortable bed
Ideal treat, dinner at Claridges, Jersey Boys Show, then off to The Ivy for supper, to return around 1am. To be awoken by the fire alarm and had to evacuate the room at 4am. Only thing I have ms, dropped foot climbed down 7 floors by fire stairs with which the rail was filthy. Entered the foyer to staff saying nothing. All guests squashed in foyer. I walked into the breakfast room to put my splint on. Everyone followed to sit down. The situation, whilst not the fault of the hotel, could have been eased with forthcoming information from the staff, even on the room floors would have been helpful. Feel your staff need more fire training, not just a waistcoat.

We stayed for one night to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. On arrival to departure we felt very valued as guests. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We were given a lovely room and gift which my daughter loved and made our stay extra special. Location is perfect for getting around central London. We did not eat at the hotel so cannot comment. We had a lovely stay thanks again to all the staff.

This hotel has the bet location inLondon. Nothing more to be said about this. Staff is fantastic, great service with a smile. Pity they charge for wifi when Holiday Inn Express hotels give it for free. Also charge to retain bags after check out. Small gripes but free wifi would make this a 5 star hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Casablancan This excellent hotel deserves a better bar
The hotel location is wonderful the staff always helpful and friendly but the bar area is so dull that we feel obliged to go and have a drink outside. Divide the bar off from the restaurant with a curtain or trellis, improve the seating and the lighting and I am sure that you would quickly cover your costs through higher bar traffic.

The receptionist greeted me well and immediately offered late check in service as an IHG Club member. This was my first experience, Rooms were comfortable and showers were good.Breakfast was very nice too, liked the crispy soft croissant. Would come back here again if in London especially if the price is right.

We had a very nice stay at the Holiday Inn London-Mayfair. You clearly cannot beat the location in central London and the value paid. There is so much to do near the property - and very close to the tube station. The staff was extremely friendly and very helpful with ideas and recommendations. Highly recommend this hotel!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Yosoynash The welcome at the hotel was not the best
when I got to the hotel at 11 pm on March 26 with my confirmed reservation for the Holiday Inn staff thought it would be nice to come and rest after being my fifth city in Europe. However, the hotel manager, a tall, dark, told me that my reservation was canceled because my card had been rejected. I told him I had a reservation number and a mail confimado where only a week ago I asked if everything was OK with my book and that people of Holiday Inn had replied that it was. The reservation is canceled dijoy I have no more rooms ... after discussing without receiving any answer from the manager of the hotel, we were approached by a person who kindly tried to speak Spanish and convinced the manager to give us a room with a cash deposit. So I asked how much was the deposit and the manager asked me 300 pounds more than what the room cost, what the concierge helped us negotiate with the man at the desk asked me only 100 pounds and he understood that deposit requested was excessive. After half an hour we could have a room and rest ... after that the other staff was friendly and efficient, but the hotel manager made me feel very discriminated against.
It is a shame because the other staff does do a great job. The hotel is a bit old and could improve the facilities for the 4 stars not solid leads in Mexico would be a maximum 3-star hotel. I expect an email with the answer to my complaint. Thank you.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AH13 Poor staff service!
The service at breakfast was poor due low levels of staff that were clearly not trained.
I also ordered a taxi for 06.30 in order to be at the train station for 07.15. Even though I checked this on 3 separate occasions, they still failed to ensure a taxi was there meaning I missed my train!
