We booked this through lastminute.com as a Top Secret Hotel so were not sure what we would get. To say that we were pleasantly surprised is an understatement. It was fabulous. The Athenaeum has a boutique feel to it and the room was perfect. It is apparently being updated but we neither saw nor heard any sign of this and apart from the odd stain on the carpet I would not have noticed that it was in need of updating. We arrived early at 11.30 am and expected to just leave our bags until we could check in but they changed our room so that we could check in straight away which was wonderful. The only down side is that we were only there one night so didn't have the chance to fully appreciate it. The location is wonderful and despite being on Piccadilly we could hear no traffic noise from our room at the back of the hotel. All of the staff we met were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.
