Stayed at the Athenaeum for one night for my partners 30th Birthday. The hotel was excellent from the start. Upon arrival we were treated to a room on the 9th floor with a great view of Green Park. The room itself was a nice size, airy & bright with a very comfortable bed. The temperature in the room was great... More

My Son and his new Wife held their wedding here on 7th February 2005 at this beautiful hotel. The very professional and friendly service they received was perfect. All their wishes for a perfect Wedding Service and reception were carried out impeccably. The bridal suite was impressive just as the rest of this hotel is. The wedding breakfast was delicious...

Stayed here for a couple of nights in Feb, and it's a nice alternative to Canary Wharf which is very sterile....but on the jubilee line to get into work. Stayed in the houses next to the main hotel...nice room big bathroom for London....great service.

I was delighted when work took me to London 25th to 28th February, 2015. I got a good rate in one of the Apartments, the self contained flats which the Athenaeum has and which offer a lot of space as well as highly individual decoration. Mine was Apartment 13, a very individually decorated appartment with rich fabrics and wallpapers and... More

My husband and I stayed on 21 February and were not disappointed. The rooms are tasteful and luxurious with lots of little touches that make it extra comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful from the moment the door is opened for you and you are welcomed in. Unlike some of the larger hotels with vast reception areas, it has... More

I have rated it as an average five star hotel, nothing out of the ordinary or special. We stayed here for one night and found it very easy to get to Piccadilly Circus, Convent Garden and the Theatre District on foot. The staff were attentive and polite and the English Breakfast was very good. We only have one problem that... More

Fantastic afternoon tea for four. We had two teas for ladies and two for gentlemen. The former was typical and 1st class. The latter was fantastic with a glass of their own whisky and steak and ale pie, wild boar sausage roll, home made seasonal terrine and mature cheese sticks with a rarebit dipping sauce, followed by cheese and bacon...

My daughter (age 9) and I were travelling to London for a holiday in November 2014. I travel quite a bit for business (have been to London several times) and I am accustomed to the finer hotels (one might actually call me a hotel-snob). However, this was my daughter's first trip there so it was important to find a family-friendly... More

We both enjoyed staying here - again! Lovely staff, nice rooms, good food, super atmosphere to relax in. The bar is a perfect size for a quiet drink or snack. Afternoon tea in the Garden Room was a real treat - sandwiches, scones, cakes ... then a dessert trolley! We'll be back!

Overall I had a lovely recent one night stay here, the staff were polite and helpful and the room was large and quiet. The spa area was lovely though quite small but a true sanctuary. The breakfast service on the Sunday (I was staying at Valentine's weekend) was a disappointment, as I had to wait 20 minutes for a table... 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.
