Excellent service!
Reviewed 2 days ago

My boyfriend and I went here yesterday for afternoon tea and a spa. Granted it was a Tuesday so we practically had the place to ourselves but the service was amazing. The staff were so kind and went above and beyond to ensure we had a great time (Michele in particular). We were given extra champagne for free and were made to feel special. The massages at the spa were just what we needed and the masseuses as well as the receptionist at the spa were lovely. I know these are small things but everything played apart in adding to our experience. I would definitely recommend this place and go back again.

Excellent service, great location, beautiful design.

Warm & professional service, beautiful design and art collection, convenient SPA opened all day, decent breakfast and great location. We loved our Suite overlooking Green Park. But what stood out was the cozy atmosphere all around.

Very comfortable hotel, outstanding location

I spent three nights at The Athenaeum in February for a business trip and enjoyed it very much. The location in Mayfair is perfect: across from Green Park and easy walking distance to any number of great restaurants, bars, pubs, shops and sights. The rooms are very comfortable and the staff is very professional, helpful and friendly. On the smallish side (most but not all the bells and whistles that some larger high end hotels provide) but overall really a very easy and comfortable stay. Thanks especially to the doormen and breakfast servers, all very charming and helpful.

Wonderful, thoughtful, this IS the hospitality!

My wife was on clutches - due to an accident she met last week, and could not go up or down the stairs, even a few steps without my help. Hotel staff are so thoughtful that they provided us with the closest room from the elevator and even put a hand-written "get well" letter + all the goodies. We both were speechless and cannot express the gratitude fully here. We are Japanese, but THIS IS THE HOSPITALITY! I am a regular here, but will never stay other hotels on my frequent business trips. This hotel is THAT good!

Simply outstanding

What a fantastic break away from work. I had high expectations of The Athaneum and they delivered on every aspect and more. The overall service is exemplary from arrival: from the doorman, front desk welcome and exemplary housekeeping standards throttle stay. You couldn’t wish for a better location in the capital and I look forward to returning soon.
