Spent a weekend, 2 nights, at this wonderful hotel. The location is ideal, a short walk from all the famous sights. The Athenaeum has everything you need for a luxury break. We were upgraded from a superior room to one of the residences, fantastic! Huge lounge with dining ares & fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with massive, very comfy bed and...

While not my first stay at The Athenaeum, this was the first time my husband and teenage kids joined me and we chose a residence vs. 2 rooms for our family of 4. This was a perfect choice for us - a total home away from home with our own entrance into the residences vs. the hotel lobby. We had...

My partner and I booked for 1 Friday night mid May and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. We booked a great deal through Secret Escapes which included full English breakfast so for a 5 star London hotel it was great value. Staff all very welcoming and friendly, our room was in one of the town house blocks at the rear of...

I booked for a one night stay to celebrate my mums birthday. The entrance to the hotel is light and airy and modern, very good first impressions. The location is great - right opposite green park, which was stunning on this sunny weekend. We were upgraded on check-in to a larger room with a park view which was a lovely...

Our third visit with this hotel and only gets better. We had a room with view of park. You are steps away from Palace. You can walk to most attractions. There are lovely pubs close by to enjoy the pies. Will definitely stay here again.

Just had two nights at this fabulous hotel. The staff are so caring and friendly. The room was spacious and the shower was hot and strong - nothing worse than a weak shower. The location is great for getting anywhere in London as Green Park underground is a short walk. Our room was quiet as it overlooked the side street....

The hotel was clean and well run. The staff was very accommodating and professional. I was disappointed to be assigned a room in one of the townhouses nearby instead of the main hotel. Both the room and the elevator was tiny and somewhat inaccessible.

I have stayed at this hotel every time I have come to London in the last ten years so I can say I will be returning again soon. However, reading the reviews, too many guests are reporting the same experience as myself, namely, the room wasn't ready. I have had to wait far too many times for " the previous...

I organised a drinks reception party for my wife at the Atheneum. We agreed a private area of the bar, drinks and canapés and we brought in the champagne and cake. You would think it would be simple to arrange but it really was quite a painful process. Our order was written down wrong and put on to their working...

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
