This is probably the worst hotel for service I have ever come across. Booked in for a luxury spa day as a treat for my sister before her wedding, this turned out to be very stressful and not relaxing at all. The spa is tiny and the steam room was out of order so we only had a choice of... More

I stayed here on two seperate occasions with my daughters. Stay 1 was 'spot on', stay 2 a bit hit amd miss. Stay 1 at Christmas time made us feel we were at our London home - welcomed by name, special snacks for my young daughter in the mini bar and top service. Stay 2 this month was like staying... More

A couple of days break spent in Central London as my wife's birthday treat. Found the hotel via "Secret Hotels" on Lastminute.com. The central location was perfect for all our activities/visits. The staff were particularly welcoming and friendly. The taster menu, at 2 for1 was excellent value; food, drink and service made the meal a real occasion. We had to... More

Again a wonderful experience and we will be back.Like the idea that they don't nickle and dime like most five star hotels. Free wifi minibars, weekly guest cocktail parties and great coffee in the room.

We were fortunate to book this hotel via last minute.com as a surprise 5* Top Secret hotel. We were very pleased with the room - location was ideal and we had a lovely view over Hyde Park. Only downside was the slight attitude of reception staff who appeared somewhat aloof at times. Would definitely return if staying in London again.

Spent a long weekend here with my wife in connection with London Marathon. This has always been my favorite hotel in London thanks to its location, room comfort, and quality of the breakfast buffet. However, the hotel has lost some of its edge over the last few years, particularly when it comes to service in the restaurant (difficult to get... More

My mum and I tend to always stay in this hotel during our stays in London. The hotel is beautiful and so are the rooms and I must say the breakfast is extremely good. The staff could be a little friendlier but as a whole, we love staying in this hotel.

I recently spent 3 nights at the Atheneum Hotel with my daughter. I can't say enough about how great the experience was. From check in to check out the staff treated us like gold. Every evening when we returned we were welcomed "home". Duncan the Concierge was extremely helpful and with his guidance we were able to accomplish a lot... More

Alll the staff were fantastic from the minute we were greated by Jim the Doorman. The Reception Staff and Restaurant Staff were fabulous. The birthday cake for my birthday was such a surprise. Our room was spotlessly clean and well positioned with lovely views of the park. I would certainly recommend the hotel.

We stayed in apartment 24 in house 4 of the hotel. It is a large well planned space that suited us -2 adults 2kids. We loved the toys on arrival, the elegant sheets, towels etc and the small but equipped kitchen. Value for money for a family on Piccadilly. An excellent concierge service. My only complaint was the food -... More

Thank you for your review Deb, we are so pleased that your family felt at home with us! Our menu is designed with our guests in mind, however we are always happy to create something bespoke if you fancy something that you can't find on the menu. Our chef puts special thought into the kids menu, being a family man... More
