We found this hotel on LastMinute.com and got a really good deal for 1 night as we had a business meeting in Mayfair the next day. I would say the hotel was lovely inside however the room we had was very small and if we had paid full price (which we never would) I wouldn't have been blown away! Drinks...

Thank you for taking the time to review us zoso1978, I am so glad that you think our hotel is lovely. We offer a wonderful selection of rooms from superior to the sumptuous roof top suite, but we like to think you get so much more for your rate than your room! Complimentary Wi-Fi, soft drinks and snacks from your...

The location is excellent, located near/by to Mayfair and opposite Green park. Next to many other 5* hotels it stands out with its wall garden and doorman. On entering it was apparent they were renovating the reception area which made my arrival feel awkward, I was then taken in a service lift to the room which meant you went through...

Yet again a wonderful stay. We thought our last visit in a park view room was good but the upgrade to an apartment was amazing, even being on the top floor and no lift. The climb was a small price to pay for total luxury. Again the staff were outstanding and extremely welcoming. Check in was a smooth process with...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my husband. Our welcome was very warm and friendly. We were made to feel like old friends. The room was large light and had a great view of the park.

After researching numerous 5 star London properties in the Mayfair area I eventually settled on booking an apartment at The Athenaeum for 3 days based on a number of reasons. Firstly the living space was of generous proportions, the apartments offered kitchenettes with washer/dryers and the reviews for this property were essentially very good. On arrival we were greeted by...

We stayed two nights one weekend in January in a superior room with breakfast. The room was clean and well appointed. It was smaller than the previous room I had stayed in but because it is called a superior room I assumed it was the slightly larger room. I now realise that superior is their standard room and therefore smaller...

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.
