I chose the Athenaeum Residence for its reputation for being family friendly and for the location on Piccadilly - close to Green Park and St James Park; close to the Green Park tube station. It was a great property with a spacious living room, a dining space in an alcove, a very comfortable king size bed, and a 2in1 washer/dryer...

Booked this with a deal however the doorman (think he was actually from reception) didn't know this when he let my husband struggle with his case down the stairs and didn't offer to assist with the luggage!:) First impressions so far not great! Guys on reception were ok - not overly friendly however they were polite. It was early so...

I have stayed at numerous 5* hotels in London . My experience of the athenaeum was appalling. We booked through secret escapes this should not have any bearing on the level of service . The rude bad mannered gent on the booking desk was dismissive and didn't even acknowledge us to begin with. Our room was over an hour late....

We have stayed in Mayfair before and I always liked the look of The Athenaeum Hotel, so we were delighted to book it for 2 nights. However on arrival our room wasn't ready so we had to wait around, then I went outside and ordered a glass of wine and 15 yes FIFTEEN minutes later it still hadn't arrived so...

Beautiful rooms, nice staff. Very close to the tube. The rooms were well decorated and the hotel itself is next to the park, with some very nice views. Definitely felt "British" but not in a stupid way.

We especially like the warm, friendly personal service from the entire staff. The location is our favorite in London. We prefer the rooms on Down street which are private and spacious. This is our 4th stay at this hotel and we have had a wonderful experience each time.

Great little hotel in the heart of Park Lane London, close to theatre land, restaurants and Hyde Park and only a few minutes walk from Green Park Station! Will definitely come back when I'm next in town and would recommend for the convenience it provides as well as the service!

Between Green Park and Hyde Park Corner stations on Piccadilly line. Straight shot to Heathrow if you have minimal luggage. Refurbished and quite comfortable. Staff cordial but check in was a nightmare. Left us sitting in the Lobby for 2 hours, well past check in time. They were apologetic but front desk personnel needs better training. Otherwise tried to accommodate...

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.
