I recently combined a business trip with a few nights with my wife, and a night with my wife and kids. Its rare for a hotel to get it right on all 3 counts but The Athenaeum did all 3 well. What I liked - free minibar, free wifi, free papers, friendly and helpful staff, awesome location, fresh water when... More

Huge and luxurious rooms in a good location. There's free flow of snacks provided in the fridge (excluding alcohol) and nespresso machine. I love their service and the little things that they do as they aim to make you feel like home! Definitely will be back again!

You can tell a lot about an hotel about how they deal with the unexpected - this hotel is seriously good. Staying one night on business, I checked in around 7.30, and was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded. The check in process was painless and swift. Given a room on the six floor within minutes - however I was greeted... More

You really can't beat the location of this hotel. Right across the street from several parks. Buckingham Palace a 10 minute walk away. Harrods around the corner. Underground down the street. The rooms are small but well equipped and comfortable. Some treats in the mini bar are included. The front desk staff were nothing short of excellent - very personable... More

We booked a room here as a birthday treat after considering a number of options. We used last minute as it was cheaper than booking direct (I double checked this on the Athenaeum website). On arrival staff were friendly and helpful. We decided to upgrade from the basic room to one with floor to ceiling windows. We went out for... More

Its a real shame to hear that the London Run interrupted your sleep - not everyone wants to be up that early I'm sure. I am glad that we were able to refund your upgrade charges and hope that you will come back to your London home again one day soon. More

Amazing location, service, attention to detail. Separate entrance to the suit. Big room, proper coffee. Walking distance from Harrods.. what else do you need? It is heaven! The bar was a bit busy, but great ambience!

Ah, the Athenaeum! This is the second time that I have stayed at this hotel and I has certainly maintained the standards that I have come to expect. It seemed that this time around there was more formality in some aspects of the service. It did win an award for the Afternoon Tea, which made it slightly harder to get... More

We booked this hotel as a special treat. Arrived early and were asked if we'd like to wait in the bar while a room was prepared. On the passing of the official check-in time at well passed 2pm, we then had to prompt reception to ask for the progress of our room, which was indeed, ready, Once we were shown... More

My wife and our three kids spent a total of six nights at this hotel over our two week trip to Europe. Three nights on the front end and three on the back end. Both visits were fantastic. When without kids we normally stay at the Berkeley but two rooms there is too much. This hotel was a great surprise.... More
