This is my first choice hotel in London and the recent refurbishment has added to the overall appeal. The private rooms and apartments (residence) off Down Street are my preferred choice as they provide a more personal experience although I've stayed within the hotel and it's equally appealing. The new lounge area and outdoor eating area right on Piccadily is...

Fabulous hotel, lovely staff and great comfy beds! What a great venue. Thanks Moriusz for your lovely welcome. We will definitely be back. The bar was open till late and was such a pretty area to sit and sip gin and tonics, a cosy environment.

Great service and nice room. I appreciated the slippers by the bed each night. It's a small boutique hotel, but large enough to have meeting spaces and upscale restaurant. Centrally located near parks and tube station, walking distance to Buckingham Palace. Would stay there again.

Ideal central location for London with easy access to all the attractions and just across the park to the palace itself. Only minutes away from the theatre district. The rooms were beautifully kept and the beds are sooo comfortable. Great facilities including bars, dining and spa. The breakfast was lovely with lots of quality food to choose from and excellent...

5star hotel. Lack of space and reception desk on entering the hotel makes for a less than comfortable greeting. Rooms are average. Meals smaller than average and taking into consideration of price. In the morning the I found the staff to be lacking any warmth of professional manners. We had to wait 10mins for our coffee to be delivered only...

We were on the lookout for a new hotel in London as we are there quite a lot and the Athenaeum didn't disappoint; we stayed in a great, clean room with a super nice view of the park. Breakfast was great and diverse and so was the afternoon tea and cocktails at the lovely bar. The hotel is clean, modern...

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.
