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.

We enjoyed a spa and 3 course lunch experience on Friday which was truly excellent. From start to finish we were well looked after and everything was incredibly well organised. Due to Covid this experience had to be rebooked twice but this was no issue for the head office and spa team. I would highly recommend use of the spa (best jacuzzi ever) followed by a back and shoulder massage (again, the best I’ve had) and body wrap. Fizz was provided and we ended with a healthy yet indulgent lunch in the restaurant. A perfect way to start the weekend. Although in central London, you feel like you’re on holiday. We’ll be back.

Visited today on the unlimited Prosecco (1.5 hours ) deal for 2. The atmosphere was relaxed and easy, the staff were lovely especially Georgia and we ended our time on the terrace. We were so comfortable that we stayed for cocktails and 6 hours later we left. Fabio was also attentive and I would seriously recommend and return here again.

We had a wonderful stay at The Athenaeum. The staff were all so friendly and accommodating from start to finish. We stayed for a combined birthday/anniversary celebration and came back from an afternoon of shopping to find a complimentary bottle of fizz in our room. We had both breakfast and then the 5-course tasting menu the following day, and in both cases the food was delicious. Overall an excellent hotel with fantastic location opposite Green Park, ideally located half way between Green Park and Picadilly tube stops, and only a 10 minute walk from Selfridges and Oxford Street. Would highly recommend.

I had booked a room for day use to celebrate my partners 31st birthday. From the moment that we entered the hotel all the staff were absolutely amazing. The hotel itself as well as the room that we stayed in was so clean and looked exactly the same as the pictures on their site. I had requested for some additional things such as rose petals which were all set up beautifully. I had also requested for chocolate covers strawberries which got delivered to out room later, however, it was within 30mins of us arriving but they still apologised for the delay and added a couple more than I had payed for. Overall extremely happy with our stay and would definitely book again.
