We have just spent 2 wonderful at this superb hotel. We had a beautiful room with a very comfortable bed. The breakfasts were extremely good and the staff bend over backwards to help. Set in the heart of the west end it couldn't be better. We have stayed at many of the five star hotels in London but this one...

Stayed for my birthday for 2 nights. A hidden gem. Impecable service, and ourstanding food. Staff are well trained always courtious and deserve high praise. The bed was super comfy with great pillows. Our suite was well appointed and we wanted for nothing. Lovely bar and a stunning collection of whiskeys which are beautifully displayed. We ate in the restaurant...

My favourite place to stay when in London. We enjoyed 3 nights, received a room upgrade and complimentary cocktail for booking direct with the hotel. The food was delicious but as a coeliac the breakfast options were limited. Staff were helpful and friendly, everyone was smiling (including us).

I was in London on a business trip and I chose The Athenaeum as opposed to other hotels in Mayfair because of the good reviews. I have to say I am very happy with my stay (7 days 6 nights). The hotel is recently refurbished, the room is spacious (I was given a complimentary upgrade to a deluxe room) and...

This is my favourite hotel when having business trips to Mayfair. Lovely atmosphere and great personal staff. After recent refurbishment they introduced an iPad check in, i.e. no desk, which appears a bit silly and very uncomfortable for the check in staff. Unfortunately this hotel is always more expensive than Hotel Mayfair which makes it difficult for me to defend...

Overall, our experience here was great. The staff were friendly and helpful. Drinks were a bit expensive, £30 for two single vodkas and Coke but that's what you would expect to pay in a hotel in London. The spa was relaxing although I was shocked that there wasn't a swimming pool - only two jacuzzis. I would definitely go back...

Have stayed here many times and it is great to come back to the Hotel, it has the sense of returning home.

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.
