I always think very long and hard before I leave a negative review. Everyone can have a bad day and everyone has the right to reply. So, I have contacted the hotel with my feelings to give them the chance to reply, but I suppose this is gripe number one - they haven't had the courtesy to do so. We... More

I emailed the hotel prior to our arrival for there... More

I stay at the Atheneum on business often. The service is always good, and it's a home from home. It has a good gym, sauna and hot tub, but best of all is close to the parks for an evening run or walk. On occasion my wife has stayed with me, and it's convenient for rail and tube. Also close...

I love coming to the Atheneum. I feel at home and safe especially when I travel alone. I wish I could remember the names of the special staff who have helped me but I do remember Duncan the Concierge. What a lovely man and such a help with my travel dilemmas. See you all again in Feb!

Location is very central and near the Green Park station. Rooms are nice and clean. Jim is my favorite doorman in London. Friendly and always there to provide assistance. Other than that, I love the complementary coffee machine and soft drinks. Good value overall.

I stayed at The Atheneum with my 9 year old son for a birthday treat in London. We had many activities planned and I chose The Atheneum as our base primarily because of the location. They do mention on their website that children are well looked after and that they have specific treats for them but I guess, being an... More

Brilliant location. Returning client over 15 years - outstanding staff, very helpful particularly concierge, doormen and restaurant. Rooms facing Green Park are the best, especially the junior suites. Their adjoining apartments are excellent for families and are very discrete. End the evening in their whisky bar which has +200 selections with some cheese on the side.

We stayed at The Athenaeum for the fourth time following a function in town and had another enjoyable experience. This is our preferred London hotel. It's central and quirky. The rooms are comfortable. The staff are always very accommodating. We love the little independent restaurants in Shepherds Market and The Athenaeum is just a short walk away. We will definitely...

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.
