This was our first trip to London, and I was a bit apprehensive that our hotel was rather on the small side. However, the Athenaeum came through for us with flying colors. Jim, the British giant, greeted us at the door with a hale and hearty welcome. Our adjoining rooms were spotlessly clean with a beautiful view above Green Park.... More

I have been lucky enough to have visited the Athenaeum three times for Afternoon Tea and have never been disappointed - in fact, being a fan of 'afternoon teas', the Athenaeum is by far my favourite - the service superb, with attentive, yet discreet staff. In February this year, as a special treat, I brought my 10 year old grandson... More

Me and my husband visited this hotel on bank holiday for one night and we both wish that we could have stayed longer. This is the perfect location to explore London. There are two tube stops which are five minutes in either direction (green park / hyde park corner). The rooms were of a great size. Lots of room and... More

Perfectly located for those that want to explore Hyde Park, Green Park, Buckingham Palace, etc or want to go shopping in Knightsbridge, Picadilly, or Bond Street. Even Oxford Street is not that far. Neither is the West End and all that Mayfair has to offer. When you walk in the front door you feel like you are stepping back into... More

The Athenaeum offered a perfect stay in a centrally located hotel. Just a few minutes away from Buckingham Palace and right opposite Green Park, the hotel gives you luxurious surroundings in a comfortable hotel. We were able to drop our bags of early which saved us dragging them around London. I would stay there again, and recommend anyone staying for... More

The Athenaeum is 10 min walk to Buckingham Palace through Green Park. Great location for touring and literally 5 min walk from Green Park Tube station. Had a fantastic daddy-daughter visit. Concierge service was very helpful, sketching out itineraries almost daily, and some great insider tips. Thanks especially to Duncan!! Cookies and milk complementary nightly in the room. Go for...

Lovely champagne afternoon tea. We came here as a little treat with friends. The hotel is beautiful and has a lovely relaxed atmosphere. There was a good selection of sandwiches and cake. If you run out they are more than happy to bring more. Lots of tea to choose from. Great afternoon and would thoroughly recommend.

This hotel simply does not compare to other London 5 star hotels. Entrance is shabby, the floor hasn't been swept for a while, our room is not ready despite it being check-in time, and the doormen do not greet you on entrance. Will adjust this review if my experience improves.

Fantastically friendly and elegant hotel opposite Green Park. Great bar serving gorgeous club sandwiches and an incredibly gooey Camembert for sharing. Good spot for afternoon tea. We stayed in a fab room at the front of the hotel overlooking the bustle of Piccadilly and serenity of the park. Lovely comfortable bed and spotless bathroom. Super atmosphere. Would thoroughly recommend. Want... More

The doorman is a grand sight, sweeping towards you in 6.5 feet of brown coattails. The decor is immaculate, the service exquisite, the food delicate and tasty. But very filling and rather expensive. Their scones, homemade strawberry jam, and egg sandwiches were my favorite dishes.
