My husband and I stayed on 21 February and were not disappointed. The rooms are tasteful and luxurious with lots of little touches that make it extra comfortable. The staff are friendly and helpful from the moment the door is opened for you and you are welcomed in. Unlike some of the larger hotels with vast reception areas, it has a cosy atmosphere and is perfectly located for all the main attractions. We made good use of the spa where again the staff could not do enough for us. The spa … modern and immaculately clean with two Jacuzzi's, a sauna and steam room that guests can use within their room rate, plus a range of treatments to book. We would highly recommend the Athenaeum to anyone wanting a luxury stay in the centre of London.”TripAdvisor
We have stayed at the Athenaeum many times over the past 10 years and it is consistently lovely with gracious, excellent service. Rooms vary from smallish to more spacious but are meticulously clean and stylish. Housekeeping is done several times per day and miraculously occurs even when we are gone just an hour. The concierge was very helpful with local reservations. We love their whiskey bar - Maria and Ernesto taught us all we know about scotch! The spa is also excellent and there are convenient running paths in the parks across the street. Complimentary coffee and refrigerator in room. And my favorite: excellent water pressure in the well appointed bath! Lovely, lovely place.”TripAdvisor
I travel often to London for work and I always choose to stay at the Athenaeum! The staff continues to exceed my expectations and make my stay very comfortable, relaxing, and convenient. The rooms are always clean and spacious. The hotel is in a great location making access to parts of the city very easy. I highly recommend the Athenaeum!”TripAdvisor
