I stay here fairly frequently .... Including the last 2 Saturday's for the Hyde Park concerts as it is only a 5 min walk from the hotel. This is also a good choice if you need to be in Canary Wharf....CW is a bit sterile in the evening, but if you want to stay somewhere nice, directly on the jubilee... More

Wonderful but sadly short stay for business. Really nice hotel, It has a great central location. The staff are friendly and attentive. I was lucky enough to get a room with a view over the park, a rare treat in central london. I will be staying again.

The Atheneum was and is a treat. The room was a complimentary and heaven sent upgrade with a bed, large and luxurious, perfectly to our taste. The hotel was flavoured with artistic flourish and avoided cliche. The staff from service to spa were courteous and we left feeling wholly satisfied by the experience

This was a beautiful location with a stunning room. Everything about the hotel was superb however the restaurent was not up to scratch. There seemed to be a disconnect between the kitchen and front of house. Breakfast was a stressful experience. The food was cold and we were kept waiting. Staff seemed confused and there was a lack of management... More

Cannot praise this hotel enough. Even though we had a "deal" to stay for the weekend, the product, service from staff cannot be faulted. Our bedroom was amazing with great beds, a park view and a walk in shower to die for!! The hotel is a few minutes walk from Green Park Tube, which is ideal for getting around the... More

Nice room, good facilities, lovely whisky bar, staff immaculate and polite. We booked direct with hotel so got complimentary free mini-bar. Very good TV/Internet facilities. Breakfast just a bit too expensive.

It's a very old building, quite tight on space - corridors and narrow, lobby is small, rooms on the small side etc. Overall the place looks a bit tired. The marble bathrooms look dated by today's standards, and the mirrored bedroom furniture the same. The hotel is well maintained and the staff were friendly and helpful. I just think there... More

My wife and I stayed at the Athenaeum in Piccadilly, London. It is a hotel we had not heard about and had some apprehensions about our stay here. But I must say that we were happy with our choice. The location is excellent with most attractions in walking distance. The room was large and comfortable. The service was superb and... More

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.
