This is a Modern, comfortable and stylish hotel in a perfect location for exploring London. It has a fantastic bar and spacious rooms (especially for central London). The staff were extremely helpful and the check-in process was efficient.

We live in London, but were looking for a brief staycation and chose the Athenaeum based on reviews. The hotel is good - but it's definitely not five stars. Upon arrival we were told to sit in the lounge area - 20 minutes went by and still no one had come to us. My boyfriend had to go and approach...

We stayed for 3 nights during the February half term in the residences just at the rear of the hotel. The residences are extremely spacious and have everything you need for a well equipped and luxurious stay. Service from all the staff was consistent and excellent, exactly what you would expect from a 5* hotel. It was the little touches...

Comfortable room, fantastic central location. Bar has great selection of drinks and staff were outstanding. Breakfast is pricey but was really really good! Afternoon tea needs a few tweaks such as bringing out hot water with the tea before you have to ask for it, but all in all a great stay.

Nice hotel. Tidy, organised and very clean. Mariusz at reception on arrival was exceptionally helpful and pleasant, and got us quickly through the formalities. Concierge and doormen charming. Proximity to Tube stations, buses, walking distance of Bond St etc... Decent sized room ( not huge - but decent ) - in an area that tends to think a broom cupboard...

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.
