The Athenaeum is a small family owned, five-star hotel in Mayfair with timeless views over Green Park and a premier location on Piccadilly, within easy reach of Green Park and Hyde Park underground stations.

The hotel is easily noticeable by its vertical garden on the outside of the hotel, designed by award-winning artist Patrick Blanc, and once inside you will find a contemporary, bright areas in which to eat, drink and relax which were subject to a multi-million-pound refurbishment in 2016. Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin are at the culinary helm, with every menu at ‘Galvin at The Athenaeum’ featuring a modern take on classic British dishes.

The hotel invites guests to “stay individual”, with this approach to service starting from the moment you arrive, where friendly staff offer the option to check-in in the lobby, bar or as you go to your room in the lift.

The hotel’s boutique spa offers relaxing massage, body and beauty treatments, a beautiful relaxation room and wet area including hot tubs, steam room and sauna. Other services include free bike hire for you to explore the nearby parks.  Families are well catered for with a dedicated children’s concierge, milk and biscuits supplied at bedtime or arranging kite-flying sessions in Hyde Park.

The guest rooms have floor to ceiling windows, some overlooking Green Park, with Hypnos beds, a Bose docking station for your iPod or MP3 player, a large plasma screen TV with multiple channels and pay per view films, free WiFi, Nespresso coffee machine and a minibar with complimentary water.


The hotel combines consistent attention to detail and a relaxed, friendly atmosphere with the familiar faces of long serving staff.
