A boutique hotel near Green Park station ”
The hotel is about 5min walk away from Green Park Station (where there is step free access). Around 10-15min walk from Piccadilly Circus. The hotel is so nice that they upgraded our room with one with a better view. Water pressure for the shower is good, but the washroom is a bit smaller than what I expected. Bed is comfy.
Dear Onon, Thank you for the lovely review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We are very lucky to be located so close to Piccadilly and just across the road from Green Park. I look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Wayne Kerrin Hotel Manager
Small Hotel with an Act of Big Chain Hotel”
I must say that I was very pleased with The Athenaeum Hotel. It was in a very good location; nearby the underground and so close with Pret-a-Manger; best quick breakfast place ever ! We had our check-in in the very early morning, instead that we have to wait for quite long, the staff was really kind and helpful as she sent us to have a shower in the Spa and leave our luggage to have them sent it to the room once it's ready. The room is quite small, but so pretty and clean ! It was modernly and glam decorated that made our honeymoon like money-well-spent with its great affordable price ! I would definitely come back to The Athenaeum Hotel whenever I visit London.
Dear Janice, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me. I am pleased that the team looked after you and and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Wayne Kerrin Hotel Manager
this is a fabulous hotel, i stayed here for 4 nights and i will definitely return to this hotel the next time i'm in london! (it's on the same road as the ritz) love the free wifi and there is a nespresso machine in the room as well. to top things up, everything in the snacks bar (except for alcohol) is free. although i have to admit that the size of the room are pretty compact. after opening 1 luggage, there is barely any space left to walk around the room. that said, i still throughly enjoyed my stay in this hotel. the concierge is very helpful and provided dinner options/ reservations on 2 of the nights i was there. service with a personalised touch :)
Great service with great location”
Athenaeum hotel has great location and you can walk to the green park , just accross the road, and 5 min. to the tube station ! Walking distance to Coffee shops, M&S food market and other supermarket which is so convenient to hotel guest. It is also very easy to travel to other direction or other main station to get out of the city and you can also just pop on the Big bus , right accross the road to have a great sightseeing of London city and the staffs are so friendly and supportive ! A greact and nice charmy hotel in the city area !
A good hotel ”
No proper reception desk, and restaurant and lobby are together! But anyway it’s a good hotel and a very wide room and nice bathroom.. location is just amazing for Piccadilly Circus, Hyde Park and Harrods. The door man is amazingly funny
Dear Meshal, Thank you for your lovely comments about our doorman. I am delighted you enjoyed your interactions with the team and look forward to welcoming you back in the near future. Kind regards, Wayne Kerrin Hotel Manager
Great upscale family friendly, conveniently located hotel”
Pros-Excellent kids concierge many little surprises in our rooms throughout trip (board game, soccer ball, wii, candies, fruit) that were a life saver after long days in tourist queues this was brillant. Apt was a great setup with full kitchen for flexible schedules and table and living room area gave much needed hang out space outside of a bedroom. Conveniently located near Piccadilly Circus buckingham palace parks and underground for easy commuting. Overall excellent hotel Cons - Alan at concierge was able to book our trips but not as knowledge or proactive as we are used to. We had to ask many questions to get important details such as ticket prices NOT being included in private tour prices meeting and drop off locations being different! Really just provided brochures - suggest your own research on what activities you want to hit before arriving. Bathroom in apt was also quite small for 4 to share (2 young teenagers and 2 adults was a little much) and half door was a challenge.
Dear Heather, Thank you for your comments. I am pleased that both you and the family enjoyed your stay and found the kids amenities to be useful. I am sorry that Concierge were not very proactive and will ensure that retraining is provided to ensure this is not repeated in the future. I look forward to welcoming you back when you are next in London. Kind regards, Wayne Kerrin Hotel Manager
Perfect Christmas stay ”
This was our first time staying at this hotel and all I have to say is this is one of the best stays we have had. Staff are incredibly helpful and polite, from the always cheery doorman to the waiting staff in the restaurant. We also received a lovely free Fortnum and Mason Christmas gift and got a free upgrade on the room. Outstanding all the way through! Highly recommend this hotel!!
Mr. and Mrs. Schomaker ”
From the opening of a cab door on our first day, booking theatre tickets, opening the door to the private bar/lounge, good morning Mr Schomaker on our first morning as we exit from the elevator, suggestions on if one should use a taxi or the tube, guiding us to Mayfair district a block away ( a secret little district) arranging for a private taxi to the Heathrow. My wife and I thought they assumed we were some Sheik with his favorite wife that had arrived at he Athenaeum Hotel.
Home away from home ”
This is my 6th stay , I like it because the apartments has all the facilities of a hotel service with semi private entrance , it's very cozy , and my kids and I feel comfy and safe , the hotel needs to work on their customization to their customer preference eg more varieties in in house menu , toilets needs to have a shower instead of bath tub , and having only one toilet in the apartment is abit un comfy
Lovely stay, the window wasn't floor to celing as I assumed and smaller than expected so I upgraded. Wish they had a shower room separate from the bath. Bath seemed slightly clogged and I didn't like the anti-slip bath mat inside the bath, I was worried about the hygine factor. I stayed in room 804, park view delux room (bigger than the regular size) , lovely & very bright in the morning. Make sure the bed you chose is the king bed that can be split as a 2 twin bed. It's much larger than the normal king bed. The blue interior was relaxing. I highly recommend this room. The amenties were grate.
Lovely staff, small toilet and great location”
1- lovely staff and receptionists. 2- good prices and location. 3- we liked how they treat our friend. They provided a free extra bed for him. 4- the only things we did not like is the elevator.
Great hotel great service”
A very lovely hotel if you plan to stay a lot in your room. Very generously sized for a hotel in London. You can set the room lighting ambience via a console provided. An ipod speaker also provided. Bathroom is very well designed, and spacious. Location is not bad, walking distance to upclass Mayfair area. Overall a lovely stay for us.
Great location ”
The hotel was amazing, the room is good value for money. Service is great. The hotel locate in good location. Love the in-room electric water kettle, instant coffee & tea (provided at no charge)! Well lit, spacious bathroom with separate walk-in shower and bathtub had excellent water pressure and plenty of hot water. Beds have duvets with crisp, clean white duvet covers (as opposed to blankets and bedspreads that rarely get washed). Robes and slippers are provided. Bed sheets and bath towels are excellent quality.
Outstanding top-end boutique-plus hotel”
The General Manager Simon runs a great ship. Interesting aspects such as the pudding club in the late evenings and some 270 types of whiskey to try. Location is excellent for Mayfair, the Bond Street shopping and the facilities around Berkeley Square and the restaurants in Shepherds Market. Easy walk to Green Park tube.
Excellent hotel with professional staff”
The management of this hotel have clearly thought about what their customers want and there are many small touches where this can be seen. Friendly, competent staff who were always available and willing to help. The only small fault was the volume of the air conditioning which was quite loud.
location is perfect”
some easily corrected complaints. they house the short and long term guests in the same townhouse-and the long term guests cook in their rooms. That leaves a strong odor and many visitors to the house.
Great location and very good customer service”
The hotel and the staff were extremely friendly and courteous and the hotel is very well situated in a nice part of London. My family and I enjoyed our stay very much. The double rooms in the adjacent hotel-apts gave us extra room and put us on a quiet side street. The room had the feel of an apt as much as a hotel room. The only issues were minor ones (TV not working properly,some common areas looking a little worn or dingy). My wife and children were very pleased with the free snack, sodas, cocktail hour on Wednesday evening. I would definitely stay there again.
5 Star Accomodation”
The hotel is located right in the middle of London, with easy access to all the transportation networks including buses, tubes and even for short distance walks. The atmosphere was well presented and recieved. Apart form tiny hick ups with the refilling of the complimentary refreshments, the rest of services seem upto the standard of the hotel of this magtitues.
Delightful London Hotel”
This is a delightful hotel with a wonderful staff. It is in my favorite location--close to shopping, museums and sights. The rooms are well appointed and roomy and the restaurant is first rate. Also has a fine newly renovated fitness room and spa.
