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

We stayed at The Athenaeum for a long weekend recently, although it was nice I won't be back. Positives - The location is absolutely fantastic and couldn't be faulted will stay in the same area during our next London visit. The staff were very friendly and helpful especially the restaurant/bar staff and the doormen. Room for improvement - Our room... 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

I booked a room as a surprise for my boyfriends 30th and everything was perfect. The staff at the hotel were so friendly and bent over backwards to help me keep the secret and make it special. We ate at the restaurant and the food was amazing, with world class service. We were so well looked after from beginning to... More

I am routinely in London/Mayfair for business and also like to take my family to England to see my English relatives. After trying the Ritz (too stuffy, very institutional food) and the Mayfair (ugh - loud, and questionable evening clientele!) I discovered the Athenaeum and have stayed there on every visit for close to 10 years. One thing I love... More

The Athenaeum Hotel and Apartments are in a class by themselves. In well over a dozen visits over the years I have yet to find a reason why it could possibly be termed other than perfect. The apartments, in particular, provide spacious comfort, with a large bedroom, a large living room, a small kitchenette or cooking area (even a washing... More

Stayed here last week for the first time. Hotel could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The kids loved the games, xbox and free mini bar in the room. The rooms were a typical size for London (not big) but very well planned and with every comfort. The restaurant and room service were excellent and I will be back.... More

I booked this hotel as part of a weekend trip to celebarte our wedding anniversary. The staff were so friendly wishing us happy anniversary and arranging cake in our room as a little surprise. The breakfast was fantastic and even made me something not on the menu,we were literally stuffed and struggled to have lunch until later in the afternoon!... More

A poor quality hotel that claims to be five star. The towels were grubby, bedlinen also had a stain on it. In our opinion the decor is dated, for a 5 star had a tiny bed, docking station that didn't work, pictures that were in need of dusting (basics that even budget hotels get right). Location is fantastic, and the... More

We have just enjoyed a lovely weekend at the Athenaeum. A small hotel with a warm family feel. The staff are friendly and helpful and nothing appeared to be too much trouble. We arrived early and were able to check into our room at 11:30. We were also able to arrange late check out at no extra cost. Our room... More
