Once I got my Oyster card this was the perfect place to stay as the Piccadilly line is the main one I needed. Very comfy beds. A bit quirky and rather too many mirrors for me. Very helpful staff. We should have tried the bar and afternoon tea as it did look very good. It was a Secret Hotel so...

We very much enjoyed The Athenaeum apartment where we stayed during our most recent visit to London. It was spacious, beautifully decorated, clean, and the amenities, which included a fully equipped kitchen and a small washer and dryer, were very useful for the family. The hotel has an excellent location, a few steps away from the vibrant Mayfair scene, as...

Our room wasn't ready on arrival but a complimentary drink in the bar compensated and dealt with in a very friendly and professional way. All staff were friendly and not stuffy, loved the atmosphere in the hotel. We were only there for a short visit but we're made to feel very welcome including a mini birthday cake although my birthday...

We enjoyed our stay at the Atheneum very much, had a fabulous afternoon tea and one of the best continental breakfast with all we love like fresh fruits, cereals, homemade strawberry jam and much more. The location is probably one of the best in London. The room was comfortable, we had all the space we needed. We liked the bathroom....

We had a room overlooking the park which had a bath(it was quite small) staff were very helpful. They had a whisky bar which was very good. Would stay here again as its a great little place idea for theatres etc. Not cheap but London is expensive.

We only stayed one night but were extremely impressed especially with the staff ..

The greeting by the doorman was warm and very welcoming as we arrived at the hotel. We were seated right away even though we were 25 minutes early. The dining room was elegant with beautiful furniture, I particularly liked the dark red velvet love seats which were back to back on different dining tables, really quirky! Music was softly playing...

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.
