Hotel Description —
Made up of 11 Georgian townhouses, Brown’s has a rich and intriguing history. Distinguished guests have included presidents and prime ministers, royalty and writers. One notable regular was Agatha Christie — her 1965 thriller, At Bertram’s Hotel, was inspired by Brown’s.
Brown’s was London’s first ever hotel. It opened its doors in 1837 under the watchful eye of Lady Byron’s maid, Sarah — and her husband, James Brown.
Alexander Graham Bell visited London in 1876 to tell the Government about his latest invention. He chose to stay at Brown’s during his trip — and made the first ever telephone call from the hotel.
One of the finest 5-star hotels in London, Brown's Hotel is located in London's exclusive Mayfair. The Hotel is as close to the boutiques of Bond Street as the Royal Academy of Arts. As near to the hustle and bustle of Soho as the calm of Green Park. Brown's hotel is a place where you can take traditional Afternoon Tea and taste the best of modern British cooking, courtesy of the capital’s celebrated chef, Mark Hix. Like all good hosts, the hotel are committed to helping guests experience the city as Londoners do.

Eating & Drinking —

Sophistication and style is always on the menu at Brown’s, whether it’s in the HIX Mayfair restaurant, Donovan Bar or award-winning English Tea Room.
One of the best restaurants in London, the HIX Mayfair menu is all about big British flavours handled deftly and with sophistication. Each plate as much of a work of art as the Tracey Emin and Bridget Riley that hang on the walls.
The Donovan Bar
Named in honour of British photographer Terence Donovan, the bar’s walls are lined with over 50 of his black and white prints. The extensive range of wines, champagnes and cocktails are all served with a twist of style. Order a signature Donovan Martini and take a seat in the ‘naughty corner’ with Donovan’s more risqué pictures. Alternatively, sit beside the original 19th century stained glass window of St George in one of the coolest bars in London.
The English Tea Room
For a slice of traditional London life, enjoy the fabled Brown’s Afternoon Tea in the award-winning English Tea Room. Take your pick from over 17 teas — including Brown’s own blend — and a selection of sandwiches, scones, cakes and pastries. The surroundings are a perfect blend of old and new. Original wood panelling and antique fireplaces sit comfortably with Paul Smith floor lamps and contemporary artwork.
