This hotel simply does not compare to other London 5 star hotels. Entrance is shabby, the floor hasn't been swept for a while, our room is not ready despite it being check-in time, and the doormen do not greet you on entrance. Will adjust this review if my experience improves.

Fantastically friendly and elegant hotel opposite Green Park. Great bar serving gorgeous club sandwiches and an incredibly gooey Camembert for sharing. Good spot for afternoon tea. We stayed in a fab room at the front of the hotel overlooking the bustle of Piccadilly and serenity of the park. Lovely comfortable bed and spotless bathroom. Super atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend. Want... More

The doorman is a grand sight, sweeping towards you in 6.5 feet of brown coattails. The decor is immaculate, the service exquisite, the food delicate and tasty. But very filling and rather expensive. Their scones, homemade strawberry jam, and egg sandwiches were my favorite dishes.

Stayed at the hotel from 1-12 August. the booking was made with request for late checkout as I had a night flight on the 12th. On arrival the staff were over wrought and lacking in warmth, almost forced. The doorman however was kind. They asked if I would like the Times complimentary newspaper, to which I replied yes.

Took my hubby to the Athenaeum Spa and Restaurant for our anniversary. Treated us to two hot stone therapy massages for an hour each and then afternoon tea at the Garden Room. It was truly a divine experience!! The massages were at midday on Friday, 15th August then the tea was at 3 pm. The lady at the spa that... More

For my family and I, it's the best choice in London! And when my friends visit London they ditto that feeling too! From Jim the super star Doorman (more like a favorite Uncle greeting you) to the receptionists who pay attention to every detail, and of course the entertaining concierges. For the children, they have games, duck food, kites, books,... More

My mom and I stayed in the apartments during a recent 5-night stay in London. The staff were exceptionally friendly, always cheerful, and very helpful. For example, one evening we were invited to meet some of the staff in an informal setting with champagne and finger food. We had thought to drop in for a few minutes and ended up... More

This was a real treat for myself and daughter and didn't disappoint. Staff were very attentive and we really received 5 star treatment. The spa is only small but our treatments were excellent and we could relax in the jacuzzi, sauna or steam room afterwards. The hotel itself is first class, we loved the dining room which was tastefully decorated.... More

I rarely book a hotel without doing a comprehensive study of all options, but for London, I loved my previous stay at the Athenaeum so much that I skipped the choosing and went straight to booking the hotel. Judging by the number of return visitors on Tripadvisor, I believe many others feel the same. Pros: - Great location for shoppers... More
