This is our third visit to the Athenaenum and we were not disappointed. Our room was clean and spacious. TV selection could use an upgrade...not much worth watching unless you like to watch sports or Middle Eastern TV. We had a bad experience last year during our stay with a snooty employee and we debated returning to this hotel, and... More

We recently stayed here for one night, but certainly wished it had been more. On arrival, our room wasn't ready, so we were shown into the whisky lounge and were given complimentary drinks, a very nice touch. Once ready, we were shown to our room. It was ample sized and well appointed. Spotlessly clean, a welcome addition was the mini... More

We arrived and were shown up to the room. One of the bedside drawers kept falling open. We reported it and were told it would be fixed by maintenance. We returned from seeing a show in the early evening. The drawer was not fixed and there were tools left in the room. We reported this and were told by the... More

We can understand that you would want everything to be perfect during your stay, and so we are truly sorry about the faulty drawer in your room. Hopefully the complimentary wine went some way to make up for it. We hope to welcome you back to your London home again soon. More

A fantastic stay over our anniversary weekend. The service is exceptional, the room was well equipped with nice touches like complementary snacks and drinks, coffee machine and fresh milk! Beautiful views from the upper floors over the park. Great breakfast and Jim the doorman must be the friendliest and tallest in London. Will definitely be back.

The location is convenient for bus and tube connections. I found the staff helpful. For those accustomed to hotel gyms, this one is at the smaller end but with an adequate selection of cardio equipment and free weights.

I took my mum here for afternoon tea for her birthday after a morning tour of Buckingham Palace. This hotel is really conveniently located for Buckingham Palace and you can walk to it through St. James' Park which is in itself really lovely. We arrived too early for our slot and instead of turning us away, we were greeted at... More

Was just staying at Athenaeum Hotel London. What a great hotel, really five stars in service, rooms, in everything. I was staying at an apartment (390£ incl vat) but it was worth it. The interior was stylish, houskeeping really superb and I just cannot say any bad word. It felt like living in London. Few steps from outdoor and you... More
