The Fox Club is not your typical hotel or club, that’s for sure, and is probably one of London’s best kept secrets. Hidden away in a small side street in Mayfair, not too far off Piccadilly, this 18th century town house, boasts nine exquisitely decorated rooms, but it also doubles as a members club open to the public with a bar, restaurant and function room.
What is the idea behind this marriage of the two? It makes for a fantastic location offering the best of both worlds - a fun and friendly place to unwind with friends, eat fine food and then spend the night in wistful comfort. You’ll certainly get a good night’s kip here given all rooms have luxury double sprung mattresses, thick Egyptian cotton sheets and a variety of naughty toiletries.
But if you want to enjoy yourself and let yourself go then that’s fine too. Naughty is probably the operative word. The Fox Club is so named after Charles Fox, one of England’s greatest statesmen - and bon vivant - of the 18th century. It was the house of Elizabeth Armistead, his mistress and eventually wife and, in fact, all of the bedrooms at the Fox Club are named after one of her lovers. The great location in the very heart of Mayfair (Buckingham Palace and Green Park are within touching distance) delicate and exquisite decoration plus history of the place, makes the Fox Club a great proposition.
Please note though that whilst staff are friendly and accommodating, there is no room service as such. In short, the Fox Club retains the ethos of Charles Fox whose vice was to have “a damn good time” if possible in luxurious surroundings.

My husband often works in large hotels, so we wanted to stay at a hotel where he wouldn't feel as if he was working - and we got it just right!
The location is superb, in the middle of Mayfair just off Piccadilly. The staff were all very friendly and made us feel as if we were members even though it was our first time. The atmosphere was very relaxed which is just what we wanted. The room was spacious for London, and the en-suite bathroom had a proper bath tub (a luxury in central London!). Breakfast choices were good, and we had the best porched eggs ever.
Unfortunately there is no lift, but you can ask for a room on a lower floor if stairs present difficulty (we stayed on the 1st floor). The only down side is that the room is always dark even if it's sunny outside because of the tall buildings around the hotel. All the lamps were quite dim, too, making the room look a bit gloomy. It would have been good if there were a few more lamps (or higher wattage bulbs in at least a couple of them).
All in all, we loved our stay there, and would highly recommend it.

Un hotelito con encanto y diferente. Pequeño y acogedor, no es un hotel al uso. La situación es perfecta, puedes ir andando a los principales lugares del centro. La habitación fantástica, el servicio muy amable. Absolutamente recomendable. Ojo, pedimos un café y nos cobraron 4 libras, pero es una anécdota. Repetiría la estancia.

Charming and perfectly situated. Rooms are a decent size for central London. The only downside is that there are no lifts and some rooms are located on the 4th floor / Attic. Hazardous when trying to move luggage up or down, especially as the staircase is narrow.
