The rooms are small with a view of another building. The lobby is also small and crowded with uncomfortable furniture. Housekeeping is hit or miss. The staff is helpful but they seemed overwhelmed by their work. There doesn't seem to be any coordination between the staff or any supervision. This is evident when guests check into the hotel. The staff... More

I stayed at the Athenaeum in December around Christmas/New Years in a park view room so this review is a little late but anyway... The hotel is centrally located just a short walk away from green park tube station. Winter wonderland and the shops, cafes, restaurants, nightclubs, casino in Mayfair is just at the doorstep so overall an excellent location... More

This hotel is in a fantastic location. Two tube stops nearby and walking distance to Harrod's, Harvey Nick's, Selfridges, Regent and Carnaby Streets, plus Green Park and Hyde Park. Loved the interior design as well. It has a nice bar in the lower level that's worth a look. Beautiful. Was only there for one night so didn't get too much... More

I stayed at the Athenaeum for the first time this week, from entering the lobby to departing I have to say the service was first class with great staff.

The service was not what you expect from a five star hotel & the food from the room service was bad. The pizza dough is what you get from the supermarket frozen dough. And the room service ask for cash

Visited the hotel on the 16 of september until 18. We got an upgrade in a beautiful appartement fully equipped that you can receive relatives and friends for a coffee. Staff was great and friendly. Bathroom is a bit small amd need some refreshments but overall of our stay was great. We strongly advice this hotel!

This hotel was a great end to our two weeks in Great Britain.

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.
