Reviewed yesterday NEW

One stupid design decision and then on to the good bits. In our room - 916 - you could not lie back in the bath because the heated towel rail was in the way. It could have been on any other wall or 40cm higher and it would have been fine, Apart from that, excellent. Friendly staff, particularly the doorman,...

Stayed here the weekend of the London Marathon. Hotel was ideally placed, being opposite Green Park and with easy underground access. Check in was prompt and efficient, reception staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was on the 9th floor and was a very comfortable and well equipped room. Kingsize bed, range of pillows on offer, towelling robes and slippers,...

Stayed here as part of lastminute.com 'top secret' deal. The hotel is perfectly located in the city centre. The luxury room was part of the residences in the side road. Parking is free after 7pm on single yellow lines across the hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful.

We were greated by the wonderful english doorman and the hotel staff. They were very busy that morning but were very nice and kept you up to date. When we had to wait, they ended up upgrading our room which was wonderful. Everything about this property is great. Great location, great people. I would recommend this property anytime.

I LOVED my overnight stay at this well run hotel. My bedroom overlooked Green Park where the leaves were just beginning to burst on the trees. So beautiful. My room was really comfortable and brilliantly appointed with everything that i needed plus extras like chocolate delicious sweetmeats (which I didn't need!) and a huge bowl of fruit and flowers.

I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to stay at The Athenaeum Hotel on several occasions over recent years and it never disappoints. It just feels like coming home. From the moment you arrive at the door, you always receive the warmest welcome.

I love this hotel and the staff. I have stayed here 6 times now and I will be back again, hopefully soon. It's a easy walk to the park, great shopping and easy Tube stops. I recommend the Park View Suites. They are well designed and a great place to relax.

This is a fantastic location on Piccadilly with great views and access to all the Royal Parks and great shopping. The rooms are very well fitted out and modern with a feel of old fashioned opulence.

An overnight stay as part of our 20th wedding anniversary and birthday celebrations. The GM left a personal message of congratulations with a bottle of champagne and some nibbles in our room. A lovely touch. The food, the room, the facilities and staff were excellent!

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.
