A few days' holiday in London drew us to the Athenaeum where we booked a park view room at a reasonable rate for a central city location. The hotel has recently been refurbished we learned which seems to have introduced some good and some odd characteristics. The room itself was somewhat small but we were satisfied with it at the...

I called in for a pot of tea one very hot day on my own after visiting Aspley House and, a few days later, met friends in the bar before moving onto their restaurant, which is run by Galvin's. The bar has been very well designed and is comfortable and intimate, without being dark. I was extremely impressed by the... More

We booked this 5* hotel to be close to the shops of Piccadilly & Oxford Street with the underground (Green Park station) nearby. As we first approached the hotel, the doorman, Jim, spied us coming & gave a warm greeting & taking our bags passed us to one of the reception staff. Check-in was done in comfort & soon we... More

Stayed at The Athenaeum Hotel for 4 nights. We loved the location as Mayfair is my favourite part of London. The hotel inside was nice and the staff were nice too. However we did encounter a few disturbances and bad service during our day. Our first issue was once we arrived at our room the room was not what I... More

We have stayed in this warm yet elegant hotel over many years and were waiting to see what the new renovations had wrought. I can only say that everything that has been added adds to the uniqueness of this warm friendly place. The new lobby with its stream lined check in caught us by surprise, but it works well. The...

Good service, nice room, quiet air conditioner. The room service worked well. Very close to Hyde Park and to Piccadilly Circus. Fast check in and a delightful full english breakfast! Located very closed to Shepards Market with lots of small nice restaurants and pubs.

Afternoon tea for 2 at 4pm on a Saturday afternoon. I am lactose intolerant, yet unlike the Hilton organisation who do not know what lactose intolerant is, the Athenaeum were brilliant. Lactose and gluten free sandwiches, pastries and hot scones. I had passion fruit and orange tea, my wife had jasmine green tea. We had 2 full pots of tea... More

I am reluctantly having to post a public negative review of the hotel as I have attempted twice to communicate directly about our concerns during our stay. We booked directly with the hotel after knowing what the service is like with their sister hotel The Grove, expecting it would be similar. It however was not. It became quite apparent early... More

An amazing 2 days in London at this super hotel. Staff are so friendly and helpful. The hotel has a great location close to Hyde Park Corner and Green Park underground. We walked easily to Buckingham Palace, Big Ben and Leicester Square and Hyde Park.

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.
