I had the recent pleasure of staying at this hotel with my wife as part of a weekend away in London. Like many things, it's all in the detail and for us this hotel delivered from the moment we stepped through the door and were greeted with a 'welcome home'. One of many lovely touches that we experienced throughout our...

This is the second time we have had the pleasure of staying at this hotel for my wife's birthday, this time we fetched our 3 year old daughter with us.

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel, both occasions have been a real joy to stay there. The location could not be better opposite Green Park, but close enough to the West End and Mayfair. We were given a room with a view overlooking The Park on this occasion which was a real bonus. The rooms...

Over the last 12 months we have spent weekends at The Langham, The Bloomsbury Hotel, One Aldwych and Millennium Grosvenor so have much to compare The Athenaeum with. Out of that grouping it only beat The Millennium Grosvenor (which to be fair isn't difficult!). Although the hotel is small it does not have sufficient lift capacity. It has only 2...

Stayed in one of The Athenaeum's one-bedroomed serviced apartments this week and really enjoyed the experience. I chose a serviced apartment as I was down for most of the week and wanted a 'home-from-home" experience, which is what I got. The period entrance is on a quieter London street so I managed to sleep well, which I don't always when...

I stayed for 1 night for a work function, but booked it myself via Laterooms The hotel isn't one I would normally pick myself - I would usually go with the 'big chains' of Hilton / Marriott etc, but pleased I went with it.

We were so looking forward to afternoon tea, but it was so disappointing. The sandwiches were very ordinary and when we asked for more, we were charged an additional £7 for the dry offerings we were given. At no time were we told that there would be an additional charge to replenish. The cakes were average nothing exciting. Overall a...

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.
