A luxurious, chic lobby sits alongside bold, edgy lounge spaces in prestigious Mayfair
Established in 1851, this 123-room hotel lays claim to being one of the oldest hotels in London. A simple Georgian exterior gives way to an opulent lobby with marble floors and gold-gilded furniture -- all part of the multi-million pound renovation. Other notable results of the refurbishment are the Front Room, a bold and edgy space with sensual fabrics, and the Aria Suite, a fabulous execution in clean modern lines and state-of-the-art lifestyle technology.
Just three minutes’ walk from Green Park Station, in prestigious Mayfair
Flemings Hotel is located in Mayfair, a district brimming with hedge-fund managers, embassy diplomats, and the local affluent -- interesting for understanding the local social hierarchy and, of course, for rubbing elbows. Enjoy walking to many major shopping and dining districts from one of the most centrally located hotels in town.
Pleasant and modern decor, but with limited free amenities
Rooms are decorated in a comfortable modern style, with pretty patterned wallpaper, designer throw pillows, shagreen desks, and other designer-style touches -- though their modern style doesn't seem to meld too well with the historic building in which they're housed.
Bold, edgy lounge spaces, and free use of Fitness First gym facilities
Modern European cuisine in a contemporary setting
The bold, beautiful interior design of the common spaces (the result of a multi-million pound renovation) is what sets this luxury four-pearl property apart from others. Room rates are relatively reasonable for prestigious Mayfair, but a handful of the non-renovated rooms could use some air fresheners. And despite its luxury status, the hotel lacks amenities such as a spa and on-site fitness center.
