We stayed here for one night after getting a deal through Secretescapes. The price was ok for London (£199) though without breakfast. It was a nice touch to have free snacks and soft drinks included in the mini-bar. The main benefit we found of the hotel was the location. Close to Buckingham palace and a 10-minute walk to the tube... More

My husband and I visited the Athenaeum for our third visit during November. Every time we visit we really do feel as if we are coming home. All the staff are very welcoming and look after us so well. The beds are very comfortable, and the pillows are just heavenly - I sleep better there than I do in my... More

This is a pleasant, middle-of-the road place across the street from Green Park and a couple of blocks from Hyde Park. Its central London location also puts it close to many of London's sites and points of interest, though Piccadilly Street (Road?) toward Piccadilly Circus gets pretty congested during peak times. The staff are helpful and gracious. Beyond that, there... More

The centrally situated hotel is ideal for a London break without breaking the bank. It is a quality 5 star hotel yet has a friendly warmth you would expect from a smaller, more intimate hotel. Check in is swift and courteous. Information is provided about the hotel and its facilities along with any extra specific information about the room. Apples... More

Overall my experience at The Athenaeum Hotel was enjoyable and well managed. I held a conference with 30 people in the Hyde Park room which offered natural lighting and comfortability. Staff were amazing; on hand with all enquiries offering a professional and friendly approach at all times. Special thanks to Kim Whitehorn and her team for the continuous service that... More

We booked and pre-paid our stay through Secret Escapes. We were first given a room for disabled, but called down and was given another room, a small upgrade, but better for us. (Unpractical with sink in the bathroom reaching sitting height when we are both tall people). The new room was airy and bright, clean and nice. Service was impeccable.... More

Stayed for 4 nights on business trip. Hotel was lovely. Small cosy bar area. Hotel room lovely. Staff so friendly and helpful- nothing too much trouble. Loved the doormen - Jim and John - miss having my taxi door opened and being assisted in and out. A few pretentious guests - not sure why they feel the need to look... More

My wife and I are now making something of a mission to compare afternoon teas in various places, and this ranks as one of the very best. To celebrate her birthday we took our three sons and their girlfriends for the special offer 'free-flowing prosecco tea in the Garden Room. Although you have timed sittings, two hours is long enough... More
