Having traveled to London many times and knowing the Hyde Park corner location is a great jumping off point to explore the city on foot or via Tube/Bus, I was looking for a smaller more intimate hotel. With multiple hotels to choose from near Hyde Park, The Athenaeum was perfect!! Arriving early from the states, the personalized service upon check-in...

The food and drink were delicious but the service for our afternoon tea experience was appalling. We had to ask for everything and twice on many occasions. The venue was lovely too, but for the cost and setting I was not impressed. I'm afraid I will not be returning.

Dear Kpantos I was delighted to read that you enjoyed the food during your afternoon tea visit, however, very disappointed to read that the service was not up to our normal high standard. I will be following up with re-training of the team this week to ensure this does not happen in the future and would like to thank you...

Perfect location opposite Green Park. We had a room overlooking the park and it was lovely. Ultra modern decor inside. Gorgeous marble bathroom. We also had afternoon tea at the hotel which was one of the best I've had. You get so much food and the staff just bring more and more! We sat for hours chatting away. It was...

We invited our friends for a birthday lunch and had arranged the Prix Fixe menu through Bookatable.com. It was all OK but the food was onthing special and really not a patch on other deals - nothing was exceptional, there were no nice amuse-bouches as is usual in other restaurants of this "quality" and my main objection was being charged...

We spent three nights in The Athenaeum Hotel during our stay in London. The hotel was not at all what we expected, as it is in an old building that has been redone in a contemporary style. That is not to say that it's not a great hotel to stay in, however. One of the quirks is that there is...

Hubby & Friends organised this birthday surprise dinner. Glass of champagne upon arrival followed by 2 bottles of Muscadet and birthday wishes. The three course fixe prix menu was delightful. Staff attentive and friendly. Loved the lounge & outdoor space we sat in afterwards. Menu good value for the area. Would recommend.

Things have changed since our last visit in 2011 but it's still a fantastic hotel to stay in and the location makes walking to all the best attractions in Central London so easy. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the restaurant suggestions were "spot on". I'd definitely stay again and would have no hesitation in recommending to anyone...

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.
