This is a very good hotel in an excellent location. Staff are very friendly and service is very good. I would recommend it for business people visiting the West End and for tourists and shopping addicts. There are also excellent restaurants within walking distance.

We have stayed at the Athenaeum many times over the past 10 years and it is consistently lovely with gracious, excellent service. Rooms vary from smallish to more spacious but are meticulously clean and stylish. Housekeeping is done several times per day and miraculously occurs even when we are gone just an hour. The concierge was very helpful with local...

I can't say enough good things about the Athenaeum Apartments and the kids concierge. When we arrived there was an Xbox and a Wii, DVD player with games and DVDs for all of them. The concierge has menus of all the games and DVDs and Board games too! The mini bar is complementary and restocked with your favorites! The biggest...

Honestly, the only thing I would improve is the food - the restaurant is small and the service is very slow. We had afternoon tea one afternoon which was average in terms of price and standard of the food, and the breakfast and dinner were very mediocre for a 5 star hotel. The apartments are fantastic, however - plenty of...

we have stopped here many times and I guess I have been reluctant to share this wonderful hotel with others to date.

The hotel itself seems very nice, the doorman and staff were very friendly and helpful. We were booked in to the spa for 2 treatments and the use of the spa.

Our room was not ready upon arrival. We were put in an apartment down the block, not part of the hotel. The elevator barely for my husband and I (and we are small) and the closet was tiny and had no drawers, so we decided to move to the main building. Our room was not ready until 10 pm. This...

We stay quite often in London and have tried quite a lot of 5 star hotels and I can really say, that in comparison, the Atheneaum just has not got the standard and we were very disappointed!

Staying in Mayfair

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.
