Always drive past this hotel and think how nice it looks from the outside so decided to book a one night stay. Had a park view room which was thoroughly disappointing. Whilst fairly clean and tidy, the room was really small and quite basic. We arrived just after lunch and decided to eat in the restaurant. The menu was lacklustre... More

Attended a private dinner in the Hyde Park room. Excellent, attentive and very professional service from the staff. A special thanks to Kim who was taking excellent care of the guests, and would have full confidence in recommending the hotel for similar events.

A business contact was staying here and she suggested we have a meeting over breakfast so I went down and was greeted by the doorman and the typical level of service for a really good hotel. We were seated very quickly and the service throughout breakfast was very attentive but not intrusive. There is quite a bit of choice on... More

This spot was perfect for a working week in London with some touring tacked on. The room was great. The hotel staff was excellent. Arrived early in the morning and they let us right into a room - upgraded us to deluxe so that we wouldn't have to wait for the standard to be made up. The breakfast was excellent... More

My partner and I booked to stay at an apartment at the Athenaeum Hotel for a weekend away with our small child.

When we travel, our hotel's location is perhaps the most important aspect. We also try to choose a hotel that is cozy and comfortable, a hotel that is not too big and full of tour groups. The Athenaeaum Hotel was superbly located right across the street from Green Park and convenient to visit many of our favorite spots in London... More

Stayed here last year, and really enjoyed the stay. Booked a concert for a Saturday night as it was my Girlfriend's Birthday and so wanted to stay in London. Found this hotel on google, and came highly recommended. Very impressed with rooms, both in terms of the furnishings and the size. We had a park view room which was nice,... More

We'd booked the Athenaeum for a weekend get away in London and we weren't disappointed by our choice. Set in a superb central location on the edge of Green Park, we were lucky to have a great view across the park and the London skyline. The hotel has a lovely friendly feel to it. It's lovely to be reminded how... More

We have had stayed at the some of the best 5-star hotels in London. (Convent Garden--high class and exceptionally comfortable but only if you get a deluxe room, helpful concierges, staff a mix bag of helpfulness and penny-pinching fee for wifi; the newer Corinthia--exceptional spa, huge hotel, somewhat lacking a warm environment, showing wear already in the spa area, average...

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.
