Welcoming 5 star in central LondonPosted Jan 6, 2015
Location: Amazing location opposite Green Park and easy walking distance to Picaddily Circus. Close to all the major sights in central London.
From the friendly check in, the wonderful room, the quirky but stylish decor, you can feel a sense of class and style but no stuffiness, Stayed as a family for new year celebrations and had the most wonderful experience. The bar has a cosy and sophisticated vibe, and the mini bar had a great selection, including ice cream that the kids enjoyed. Not a cheap hotel, but worth it!

Posh but cosy lovely hotel.Posted Dec 14, 2014
Gentleman door man (old one), starts and ends the day with a huge friendly smile. Thank you. Room was always clean. Technical staff were very decent. People work in the lobby/concierge have to smile. This is very important. All in all we were fully satisfied with the hotel.

Great hotel in central LondonPosted Nov 25, 2014
Great location across from Green Park within walking distance of Harrods, Buckingham Palace, other sights, and easy access to subway. A lot of cool restaurants and pubs in the Mayfair area a few minutes walk away. The rooms are nicely appointed, very good restaurant, very accommodating and helpful staff. I would definitely stay at the Athenaeum again.

Smoke Gets In Your EyesPosted Nov 24, 2014
Pros: The doormen.
Cons: See above.
This was the most unpleasant hotel stay I have ever endured and it is the first that I have ever bothered to write about online. Future guests should be warned: I was given a room on the ground floor of one of the Athenaeum’s rear townhouse properties that are not connected to the main building on Piccadilly. The room was too small and the bed too big - even the hotel staff grumbled about trying to wedge themselves into the room to pick up a tray or move luggage in or out. But this is not even the main reason for this negative review. From the moment that I checked in, I could smell cigarette smoke in the room. It continued for the next two days, commencing very early in the morning until very late at night. I complained immediately and was assured by the front desk that they would "investigate," that they would "look right into it," that they would see to it that whoever was responsible was "fined." It took me two days to realize that the source was not some phantom guest smoking above me but the staff of the hotel smoking in the alley below my window, where I discovered a large standing ashtray after I finally thought to look out the window. The alley was ankle deep in still smoldering butts. Workers standing there smoking informed me that this was their designated smoking area. When confronted, the hotel finally apologized and moved my room to the main building. Too little too late. An outrage.

Great LocationPosted Oct 5, 2014 on Hotels.com
Great Location,a walk thru the beautiful park will take you straight to Buckingham Palace, safe, quiet, close to the underground, and clean. Doorman was the best!

ロンドンの中心Posted Sep 24, 2014
Gjennomgående braPosted Sep 23, 2014 on Hotels.com
Beliggenheten er meget god på Piccadilly. Rolige gater bak hotellet med bra servicetilbud. Rom i "town house" del av hotellet ga mindre støy og meget bra standard. Gjennomgående bra service selv om det ikker "outstanding". Prøvde ikke maten.

Friendly Staff and Favorable LocationPosted Sep 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Standard Room of my first night was a disappointment as my room on a previous stay had overlooked Green Park. The phones didn't work properly and their was construction noise. I was moved to a much better deluxe room for the next 2 nights at the same price but there were still phone issues that required multiple complaints before they were fixed. Still the pluses outweighed the minuses and I would return.
