We had three days in London and decided to stay at the Athenaeum in Piccadilly, as we wanted somewhere central. We have been to London many times and have stayed in the west end as well as in the east.
Our choice was a winner. The hotel right opposite Green Park, where we walked every morning. It is an easy walk to Knightsbridge, Oxford Street,and Piccadilly and the theatres. The Green Park tube station is five minutes away.
We had a king double room which was spacious, equipped with a free minibar, wifi and a beautiful bathroom. There was an enclosed balcony with a side street view. Considering the position of this hotel, the room was quiet and the aircon effective.
As we required a late check out we moved into a smaller room for a few hours at a very reasonable rate. The smaller room was more suited to a short stay.
The foyer is not 5 star, but the deficiencies here are made up by the exceptional staff, for whom, nothing is too difficult.
As we dined with friends, we did not try the dining room.
We would certainly return to the Athenaeum as will recommend to our friends, as a convenient and well equipped place to stay in London's West end.
