British craftsmanship, refined luxury and an Art Deco spirit collide at this prestigious five-star hotel in the heart of London. Occupying a prime Mayfair position, the West End, designer-lined Bond Street and Buckingham Palace are all just a short meander away. The Athenaeum itself exudes contemporary charm. Spacious rooms and suites cater to all of life’s luxuries, with views over verdant Green Park or character-filled Mayfair. Residences – the hotel’s luxurious serviced apartments – are found inside the adjoining Victorian red-brick buildings. These polished spaces offer a private entrance, separate bedroom and living areas, 24-hour in-room dining, plus full access to the hotel’s facilities. Dining comes courtesy of the hotel’s restaurant, 116 at The Athenaeum, with menus championing the very best British produce. The royally-inspired afternoon tea has become something of a London tradition, served with artisan tea, picture-perfect pastries and an array of sweet and savoury treats. Across the lobby, The Bar at The Athenaeum is a tranquil hideaway, promising cocktails created by an award-winning barman and more than 100 rare and intriguing whiskies. Sumptuous seating areas offer an insider’s look at The Athenaeum’s Living Wall – a vertical garden that covers an entire exterior wall of the hotel, from ground level right through to the top floor. Elsewhere in the hotel, the high-spec gym is accessible 24/7, while the spa has an inviting hot tub and an enticing menu of REN treatments. Guests at The Athenaeum can also gain exclusive access to The View when booking direct – an enviable London spot from which to enjoy a complimentary drink and nibbles in the evening.

Hotel's Favorite
I cannot say enough good things about The Athenaeum. I’ve used the hotel on several occasions during the Covid-19 lockdown, as a key worker it has been an absolute gem of a find. Finding suitable accommodation in London especially during the early stages of the lockdown was very difficult, I stumbled upon The Athenaeum and I was surprised to see rooms available for key workers at such a reasonable price. Despite the budget price the service throughout my stays has been anything but a budget experience. The various staff members I have encountered or spoken with could not be more helpful on every occasion. The staff are a compliment to the hotel. The hotel has taken the steps necessary to guard guests and staff from Covid-19 whilst still maintaining their high standards. I will certainly be returning to use the hotel when I am in London for private stays and life returns to ‘normal’. Thank you very much to the management and staff, you have been fantastic!

Could not recommend this hotel enough, staff will go above and beyond to make sure every need is met. In particular, Kim could not of been more helpful, even recommending us the best breakfast spots. Rooms are beautiful and food is always amazing. Location is great. Will continue to choose this hotel when visiting London.
