We were astounded by our stay in the Athenaeum Hotel last night. I had researched hotels in London thoroughly before deciding upon this hotel to celebrate both my partner's birthday and my 5 month old son's first trip away. I expected it to be very good but there was no preparing for just how good a place can be. This place is very, very special.
To start, the staff were exceptionally warm and welcoming and accommodating for our family. Every staff member we met had a genuine, friendly and warm nature (Serena, Zsofia.... and many others who I do not recall their names).
It really was as they profess to be 'a home from home'. As many would appreciate it is not easy travelling to London with a young baby, but this hotel made it a total pleasure. Given its close proximity to London Victoria it is possible to walk to the Hotel with a buggy and luggage. The room was immaculate, spacious and comfortable. It suited all of our needs..and more. We were made to feel special by some personal touches by the staff team (to include; a birthday card and cake for my partner, complimentary treats/drinks and toys to entertain our son). The kids concierge were excellent. We took advantage of the room service menu to eat in whilst our son slept and the food was fantastic.
I feel this Hotel is more than worthy of its 5 stars and I will be recommending it to all friends, family and colleagues travelling to London.
There was nothing that could have made this stay any better for us. I have no suggestions for improvements to make. It was perfect.
