I cannot say the place is not nice, but paying more than 400 euros a night for a super tiny room with nothing amazing makes the whole experience quite unpleasant. Other than that, perfect location, very stylish service, very nice staff

Efficient check in, helpful staff, comfortable room with everything working except the lights which kept going off, apparently the controllers don't talk to each other, not much help if you are in the bath. Great bathroom and shower and slept like a log. Nice to have fresh milk in the fridge. Restaurant good but service could have been more attentive...

From the minute we arrived we were met with pleasant and friendly staff , we dropped our bags and were informed we had been upgraded to a park view room as it was our wedding anniversary !! There was a small housekeeping issue later in the day which meant our room wasn't ready on time but they were incredibly polite...

Just spent 3 nights here at the recommendation of our travel agent. Very good experience. There was confusion on a gentlemen's tea reservation, but Rachel quickly made it right. Rooms on the small side, but well laid out making the most of the room. Bathroom is dark. Needs more light.

Lovely, clean, safe, cosy hotel. Well located, on the edge of Green Park - great for people watching. Friendly staff. Lovely bar - whiskey specialists if that's your thing!

No complaints from me. It really is in a great part of the city with plenty to keep you entertained. Great service, great food, great room, great hygiene and a comfortable bed. Couldn't ask for more. But if you want to give me my money back I'd not say no. :-)

We stayed at The Athenaeum on May bank holiday weekend for three nights after getting a deal on last minute.com secret hotels. The hotel was in a great location on Piccadilly just across the road from Green park and a short walk to Hyde park and the nearest tube station. The staff were all really friendly and helpful and our...

I had high hopes for this visit, especially based on the reviews, however it was a disappointment - Prior to arriving I completed the survey - which was good idea and raised expectations. Unfortunately it was mainly ignored. No special pillows as requested and if I say my daughter has milk allergy why leave her cookies and milk every night...

Staying in Mayfair

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.
