Each year I arrange a business meeting in Central London coinciding with the Chelsea Flower Show week and the delegates stay at The Athenaeum. Usually, we have no problems at all with the hotel but this year there were a few hiccups. Having said that, it is the first year we've experienced this so I wouldn't make a big thing... More

Upgraded to a room with a Park view. Lovely room on 8th floor. Lovely staff. Perfect hotel for a special night away. Nothing seemed too much trouble. Two little cakes were sent up too with Happy Anniversary written n which was a thoughtful touch.

I have stayed here four times now and never been disappointed, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are all very friendly and the place has a homely feel. On this occasion we stayed with our baby daughter so required a larger room to accommodate the cot bed (which they provided), the room was fantastic and I would choose... More

The Athenaeum Hotel has been the hotel of choice for myself an all the members of my family formthe last five years. I do let my friends know about this fine little jewel in the heart of Mayfair. Duncan an Alan are the most helpful and Angellique in the dining room is the best. We love them all. So sorry... More

Have you ever wanted your own home in London--this is the place. We have stayed at this hotel before, which was a wonderful experience-but staying in one of their apartments take this to a whole new level. The location is prime and with the apartment you can bring home all of those delicious looking goodies that you see in the... More

From the meet and greet at the door an the early check in everything was excellent. Rooms a little small but not a problem. Afternoon tea was fabulous - I recommended the Gentleman's Tea! The set menu Sunday lunch was value for money. Will definitely stay again.

Had a fantastic stay at this hotel. Staff are very friendly and can not do enough to help and always willing to chat. The room was excellent with everything you need including a great shower. The food was superb in the restaurant and well worth a visit even if not staying at the hotel, hats off to the head chef.... More

I cannot say the place is not nice, but paying more than 400 euros a night for a super tiny room with nothing amazing makes the whole experience quite unpleasant. Other than that, perfect location, very stylish service, very nice staff

Efficient check in, helpful staff, comfortable room with everything working except the lights which kept going off, apparently the controllers don't talk to each other, not much help if you are in the bath. Great bathroom and shower and slept like a log. Nice to have fresh milk in the fridge. Restaurant good but service could have been more attentive... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood 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.
