You cannot find a better location to stay in London!
Mayfair is one of the oldest and most exclusive parts of London. Every amenity you could possibly want is within walking distance and every major site in London is either nearby or within very easy access. The restaurants and cafes of historic Shepherd's Market are around the corner and the world-renowned shopping and restaurants of Bond Street and Mount Street are a 5 minute walk away as are Oxford Street and Knightsbridge. Hyde Park and Green Park are right across the street, Buckingham Palace a 4 minute walk, Big Ben, Parliament and the London Eye another minute or so. The bars and restaurants of Soho and all the great stage shows in Theatreland are also less than 10 minutes away.
Right on the doorstep are Green Park and Hyde Park Corner tubes stations and more buses than you can count on Park Lane and Piccadilly to take you in every direction. The Heathrow Express at Paddington is less than 10 minutes away or the Piccadilly line from Heathrow comes almost to the front door. The Gatwick Express from Victoria station is approximately 5 minutes away. This is the ultimate location for anyone visiting London.

This was perfect, above our expectations without any doubt, and without a single disappointment. Francine is an expert, efficient host, knows how this is done, gives you excellent privacy in her gorgeous home in the most lovely area of Mayfair, literally a couple of blocks away from Hyde Park but off of Piccadilly on a quiet little safe street. It has easy access to two Underground subway stations and more bus stops than that, so accessible to any place you might want to go. However, Francine gave us an excellent source for a car service to/from the airport, which I recommend for both price and convenience. Francine's apartment is on the 5th (4th, in European fashion of counting) floor of a fairly new and very nicely appointed apartment building, with ample use of marble and wood. The bedroom is large and comfortable with a large view of other buildings including a slice through to the park's edge. The bed is excellent and the bedding perfect, with a light duvet at our late Spring season. The private bathroom is large, marble, and has an excellent bath/shower. Francine is congenial and helpful presence if you need her, but otherwise is respectful. We hope to return to this perfect location for seeing all of London. We are very grateful to Francine for such a location and such graciousness. Can't imagine better than this.
Excellent room. Large bathroom. Very comfortable bed. Fantastic location. Friendly host. What more could you ask for?
Francine welcomed me graciously to her home ! The listing was very accurate and in the choicest Mayfair :). She offered me all the help necessary to make my stay comfortable !
Francine was just the perfect host! Love the flat, location, location, location!! Will recommend to anybody and hope to be back soon! Thanks Francine for making me feel so welcomed!
Staying in Francine's fabulous room in her lovely flat made our stay in London. The location was just what we wanted--the convenience and charm of Mayfair. Francine is gracious and welcoming. We followed her recommendations and had wonderful meals in friendly pubs close by. The room and bathroom were spotless, warm and comfortable. We feel fortunate to have been able to stay here.
Lovely room in a wonderful part of London, close to buses and the tube with restaurants and pubs all around. A comfortable bed with a modern private bathroom added to a most enjoyable stay. It's a short 10 minute walk thru Green Park to Buckingham Palace. Francine was an accomodating host and we would definitely stay here again on a return trip to London.

About the Host, Francine
I'm a displaced American who has lived in Europe for decades.
I'm easy going, read a lot, enjoy movies, the theatre, listening to music and have developed a big interest in football by default thanks to my son. Love to cook and entertain and like having a house full of people but will respect your privacy too.
Have travelled a lot throughout the US, Europe and parts of the Middle East but not as much as I want. Still want to check out Southeast Asia and parts of Africa and hope to do that soon.
