Very well looked after and had a lovely room. My partner had her 50th birthday that day and even the doorman wished her a great birthday as we went out in the evening. A lovely touch was a cake provided in the room. Thanks to the whole team who made Dawns day a special one

This smallish hotel has a great location. Our room overlooked Green Park and you can walk to galleries, theatres in one direction and Knightsbridge in the other. The staff always appear genuinely friendly and attentive. The restaurant is intimate and food was good. We will be back when we return to London.

Used this for a huge work conference; staff were amazing (particularly Aitor) and rooms were delightful! Very boutique-feel design. Love it! Have stayed here for personal reasons and also for business. Would only stay here now for West End stay-overs!

The bed was super comfy and the room lovely. The staff were friendly and helpful. I had an upgraded room and was great to go along to the Wednesday night drinks, staff advised on some great locations to drink, see and eat.

Stayed at the Athaneum hotel and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The check in was trouble free, the room was lovely and spacious, with a beautifully maintained bathroom and free mini-bar (I stayed in an Executive room). WiFi was super quick, bed was really comfy and despite being in the very centre of London and a stroll from many of the...

Have stayed at the Athenaeum a number of times and had afternoon tea, Sunday lunch etc even more often. I have to say on this occasion, I was slightly disappointed - the room we were allocated on the 5th floor was quiet and we slept well. However, the room was very small and looked tired and in need of refurbishment....

I took my partner up to London for a significant birthday outing on April 4th 2015. As we were seeing a show and she had never stayed in a nice hotel, I chose the Athenaeum as a reasonably priced exclusive family hotel. From the moment we arrived until the departed the experience was fantastic. As it was her birthday we...

When I travel abroad I am always looking for hotels that are both comfortable and make you feel like being at home. A lot of my friends share the same need, and when they come to visit London I send them to this unique hotel. After having stayed there they keep saying me always the same thing: "You were right,...

Once I got my Oyster card this was the perfect place to stay as the Piccadilly line is the main one I needed. Very comfy beds. A bit quirky and rather too many mirrors for me. Very helpful staff. We should have tried the bar and afternoon tea as it did look very good. It was a Secret Hotel so...

We very much enjoyed The Athenaeum apartment where we stayed during our most recent visit to London. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and the amenities, which included a fully equipped kitchen and a small washer and dryer, were very useful for the family.

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.
