Stayed here 3 nights. Loved the location right opposite Green Park and walking distance to both Picadilly and Knightsbridge. Bed was large and comfortable, room decorated in a modern style. Had a nice nespresso machine and flat screen TV. Bathroom was large and spacious by London standards with a powerful shower. They were doing some work in the next door...

We were on the lookout for a new hotel in London as we are there quite a lot and the Athenaeum didn't disappoint; we stayed in a great, clean room with a super nice view of the park. Breakfast was great and diverse and so was the afternoon tea and cocktails at the lovely bar. The hotel is clean, modern...

Dusty room, poor customer service, bland boring food and the breakfast room was more like a bingo hall. I have opted for other hotels in the surrounding area since my experience here. Couldn't recommend.

The Athenaeum was our hotel during our Christmas week stay in London. The rooms are beautiful, modern, clean and very quiet. The Concierge staff, Darren and Alan, are true professionals, committed to the welfare of their guests. We had a few issues with dining and services for one of our guests while we were there.

A lovely hotel and ideally located for the New Year celebrations. We were upgraded to a room on the 8th floor overlooking Green Park upon arrival which really was a treat as we were able to view the fireworks from our room. The staff were lovely too.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood 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.
