We booked the hotel for a special occasion (Royal Investiture at Buckingham Palace) - all aspects of the service matched the occasion. We were (all 6 of us) looked after as if we were royalty and had a fantastic room overlooking Green Park. My children were amazed to find ice cream in the mini bar freezer and that complimentary cookies...

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...

I was really disappointed to read your comments, and truly sorry that you did not enjoy our usual five star service. Our sumptuous afternoon tea scooped the Tea Guild's prestigious award for "Top London Afternoon Tea 2012". Considered the 'Oscars' of the tea world, we competed against world-famous London hotels and tea rooms and gained the title having impressed the...

I stayed here for 5 nights and couldn't really ask for more, the hotel is simply great, friendly staff and always willing to help, asked for a king size bed, but checked in to see two beds instead, they had that changed right away which was excellent. I just didn't like the fact that just while trying to settle in...

We stayed at the Athenaeum Hotel on 2 separate occasions and had two very different rooms - every hotel has a dark secret. On both occasions we booked through online booking agencies. Our first stayed in the main hotel with a lovely room full length windows, overlooking Green Park. I think this was a delux room. It is small but...

Our second stay at this hotel, and despite a lot of little niggles we enjoyed it and will return. In most hotels these would not be worth mentioning in themselves, but in one of the top London hotels their accummilative effect was annoying.

This was our second stay and again we were delighted. We were greeted warmly at reception with a "welcome back" (Angela was very professional and friendly) and were upgraded to a better room.

We had a very lovely afternoon tea here - if you are a fan of cakes there is definately plenty of fabulous ones to chose from - and the lemon curd is amazing with the orange scones!! Great location as well near Green Park Tube and opposite Green Park.

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.
