Welcome to The Athenaeum


“Welcome Home!” was the warm and breezy greeting we received as we stepped into the cosy and luxurious surroundings that is The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences. Perfectly positioned and located overlooking the beautiful and leafy grounds of Green Park, the sumptuous Athenaeum Hotel  is a chic haven in London’s Mayfair.


It is a short stroll from the best shops, restaurants, West End theaters, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, and access to transport facilities are second to none.  Although it is seemingly a beautiful and indeed modern property, it is a building steeped in history. It was originally built in 1850 as a private residence that became a high society Gentleman’s Club during the Victorian era, and was transformed into a five-star hotel many many decades later.  Celebrities who have stayed at this hotel include Steven Spielberg, George Lucas, Harrison Ford, Sandra Bullock and even Kim Kardashian West and husband Kanye West.

A jewel in the crown of The Athenaeum is its wonderful Galvin Restaurant by Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, where you will also be met by warm and welcoming waiting staff.  We ordrered for starters the Cornish Fish Soup served with grated cheese and rouille and the Everleigh Farm Asparagus, for the main course we tried the Cumbrian Pork Chops served with red love apples and for dessert the apple tart with cider brandy cream,  – simply divine!   All helpings were generous and tasted second to none – we left truly satisfied.

Park View Room

The Guest rooms and residences were chic and modern, with their stylish London-inspired furnishings (we loved the very cool portrait of David Beckham outside our room), also the fun pieces of art in different nooks and crannies added a touch of cool quirkiness.  The beds were dreamingly comfortable, and generally the rooms was filled with every aspect of furnishings that you would expect from a luxury 5 star establishment.  We were also blessed with a wonderful unique view over looking the gorgeous Green Park.

After enjoying all the fabulous amenities the hotel had to offer, we had a little time to make the most  of the property’s gym and spa facilities which include cardio machines and strength training equipment. There were also hot tubs, sauna, steam room, and a relaxation area, everything a fitness fan could desire.

The term “home from home” with added extraordinary luxuries really sums up the feeling you get with your stay at The Athenaeum.  As we departed the property, we were simultaneously checking our diaries to see when we would be able to reschedule another visit..

Highly recommended and truly a special experience, make time for The Athenaneum – welcome home!
