We stayed at the Athenaeum overnight, it was a very convenient location for us given that we were attending Buckingham palace's garden party and this was just a stroll through green park opposite. We were first greeted by a lovely doorman, who was most welcoming and polite, we built a rapport with him immediately, he was very welcoming and helpful. The ambience of the hotel is what one would expect of a five star hotel and the room was very lovely indeed, marble bathroom, large bed and modern amenities and furnishings. Everything in the minibar is free! (Apart from alcoholic beverages). The staff were professional and friendly and all of that counts. It truly was a home away from home and I look forward to staying again. The only negative thing would be that I was not taken by the breakfast on account of the lack of choice for the continental selection and I found my eggs benedict bland and my husband found that his mushrooms were also the same, but that is a personal assertion upon my experience. I enjoyed my time at the Athenaeum and do recommend this hotel to others. I would like to add that it was my husbands birthday also and they very kindly had a birthday plate made up for him and we found that to be a much appreciated gesture! Thank you very much for that.
