“Excellent overnight at the Athenaeum ... as usual”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

My wife and I spent a mid-week night here. We stay at this hotel about once every 6 months and it's a good experience. The location is fantastic: 10 mins stroll for Buckingham Palace & Bond Street; 15 to Knightsbridge and Regent Street etc. The hotel is modern and efficient; the rooms are very well equipped: mini bar, free-standing hangers, iron etc.. On arriving in our room this trip our Air con had tripped-out, but a call to Front Desk had a Maintenance Man arrive and fix it inside 5 minutes - great service. Also, great to have no-nonsense, free wifi with a good response time. All-in-all: recommended.

Another overnight stay at this fabulous hotel. We were able to check in on arrival at 11am, room upgraded to a park view, gorgeous! The service, as always, was absolutely excellent. Everyone at the hotel is polite and with a smile aswell. The staff will go out of their way for you, always aiming for exceptional service - and always delivering. The Athenaeum has fast become our London home! I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for a park view with a bay window

I have stayed at The Athenaeum many many times over the years, as both a business traveler and vacationer. This is an exceptionally elegant and welcoming hotel, with outstanding concierge services, helpful staff and exceeding comfortable accommodation, especially the apartments. The location couldn't be better -- across from the Green Park, a quick walk to Fortnum & Mason, and very near London's most exclusive shopping districts, including my favourite, Jermyn Street.

Just returned from an overnight stay in London at this Hotel. Have stayed before but never got round to writing a review. Had a fabulous park view suite (free upgrade). Great room - lots of nice touches such as Nespresso coffee m/c, fresh fruit platter delivered, little freezer with ice-cream in it. After a tortuous train journey in decided to chill in the room's lounge area with room service club sandwich and a bottle of rose - it was delicious. Location perfect for short walk to theatre and lovely stroll next morning through Green Park and St James Park. Breakfast options very extensive with some quirky appetising options (corn beef hash, kidneys on toast). Staff really polite and helpful without the stuffiness you sometimes get with London hotels. Will be back again soon.

I stayed here on business for a week. I arrived before noon after an overnight flight to LHR. I was so pleased to have a room ready. The check in process was easy and the front desk staff were pleasant and welcoming. My room was a good size and was very clean and comfortable. The bathroom was big by European standards which was helpful since I was there for so many days. The hotel is right next to Hyde Park and everything is an easy subway or taxi ride away. The restaurant is good but a little pricey considering the close by options. I like the Athenaeum and would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here one night and was pretty pleasurable

Beds comfy room decor nice

Felt very special accept the spa area was not working :(

Would definitely go back but not in a huge hurry as a bit pricey but guess u get what you pay for and it is Central London and a plush hotel :)

Stayed here for one night when I had to come to London on short notice for business. I got to the hotel around noon and was pleasantly surprised to find my room ready. It was a good size, nicely furnished, floor to ceiling windows, a spacious bathroom, etc. The location is very good - 5 minutes from Green Park tube station and Mayfair. Will definitely come back next time I'm in London.
