We stayed here whilst visiting the shard and having dinner at Oblix. We arrived before 11am and were told that our room was out of the hotel and in another building. I decided to look at the allocated room but decided that I would prefer to stay in the main hotel. Without question they accommodated my request even though the...

On arrival we got an upgrade to an amply proportioned room in the furthest of the four connected houses comprising the hotel. This plus the fact that the afternoon tea proved to be of good quality and was served in a pleasant tea lounge put us in a good mood. The room was fine, albeit a bit impersonal, and the...

The Athenaeum hotel is right in the middle of London. A lot of nice places are in walking distance. That's the reason we chose the hotel. Check-in was quick and a lady gave us a tour of the hotel and walked us to our room. The room was in a different building. We had to get out and use another...

I just love The Athenaeum because it is a beautiful hotel inside and out! Sure some of the rooms are very small but then others aren't, and otherwise everything is great!

Accommodation first class, staff very friendly and polite. Good location. Room very quiet (room 416). However cooked breakfast plates not removed from table while we were eating toast and marmalade. Disappointed that complimentary copy of The Times did not include weekend supplements.

We had a couple of nights here in March and it served as a great base for getting out and about as it's less than a five mins walk to the tube station.

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.
