The staff from the second we arrived were most helpful starting from the doorman who organised the parking of the car; to the bar man who served us beautiful canapés. Our stay was made even better when our room was upgraded to a room overlooking the park ! The staff are a credit to this hotel and I would not...

I mostly rather places nearer to British Museum, but this Picadilly stay was rather pleasant. It was a pity that it was a business trip, because the luxury of the place asks to be shared with the family.

Myself and my husband celebrated our first wedding anniversary this weekend and we stayed at the Athenaeum hotel. We had a lovely room overlooking Green Park which had great amenities. Our check-in and check-out was seamless, Fabiano (concierge) gave us excellent service and I am really looking forward to our return. Thank you to everyone!

As two couples (celebrating a birthday & a 15th wedding anniversary) we made two separate bookings on-line and on arrival at the hotel were given an upgrade to two beautiful apartments belonging to the hotel, just round the corner from the main entrance. The apartments were unbelievably comfortable, clean, and elegant - it was hard to leave the hotel and...

Just what you'd want from a hotel - luxurious, smart but not stuffy, one of London's finest. Opposite Green Park, walk to Mayfair or West End. Park view rooms are lovely. We had complimentary champagne and canapés on arrival too! Really enjoyable mid week visit. Our pug liked it too,

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.
