This spot was perfect for a working week in London with some touring tacked on. The room was great. The hotel staff was excellent. Arrived early in the morning and they let us right into a room - upgraded us to deluxe so that we wouldn't have to wait for the standard to be made up. The breakfast was excellent...

When we travel, our hotel's location is perhaps the most important aspect. We also try to choose a hotel that is cozy and comfortable, a hotel that is not too big and full of tour groups. The Athenaeaum Hotel was superbly located right across the street from Green Park and convenient to visit many of our favorite spots in London...

We'd booked the Athenaeum for a weekend get away in London and we weren't disappointed by our choice. Set in a superb central location on the edge of Green Park, we were lucky to have a great view across the park and the London skyline. The hotel has a lovely friendly feel to it. It's lovely to be reminded how...

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.
