Editorial review:

This spot has an amazing location close to the Knightsbridge shopping district and Green Park. There is impeccable service, a 24-hour health club with a Jacuzzi, and a great whiskey bar. However, the peaceful and contemporary rooms with nice bathrooms are too small for some. The apartments in the Edwardian townhouses are bigger, though.

                the staff was very helpful, housekeeping was excellent, the location was great, the room was not too small, very clean, great shampoo, conditioner etc, free beverages, nespresso coffee maker, also free, interiour of hotel nicely stylish

                The fact that the spa was closed and customers were not told in advance. the walls are quite thin for a five-star hotel. you hear your neighbor's TV.

                A boutique hotel is always different, but that one is perfect ! The staff, the food, the room, the breakfast (even if a little bit pricey), everything was absolutely perfect. I will definitely come back !

                Great staff, good location, newly decorated room. There is nothing not to like, really.

                Drinks in the bar are expensive, as is breakfast. If that's a problem for guests, though, it is easily solved locally.

                I was in one of the apartments and loved the room.

                Little details such as poor wifi signal and water pressure. Spacious, light, nicely decorated, comfy bed.

                The hotel has two (quite good) bikes that we were able to take out for a long ride.

                Great location and service. Complimentary mini-bar (soft drinks and snacks + milk for hot drinks) and fridge space for personal use. Complimentary pastries in the afternoon.Fabulous breakfast. Front rooms overlook Green Park, large windows. Very comfortable room, bed, lighting - even side of curtains velcroed to block light.

                This is the second time we have stayed at the Athenaeum for a weekend break and would thoroughly recommend it. The hotel has a very friendly atmosphere, where nothing is too much trouble for the staff.

                The hotel has a quirky feel, with modern art in abundance. The afternoon tea is to die for!

                We weren't asked initally if we wanted a room with just a shower or a bath. When we were shown to our room it had disabled facilities and just a shower. They simply moved us to the room next door to have a bath. I think we should have been told it was one of the rooms with disabled facilities and asked us if we wanted to take that one or another one.

                The rooms were really comfortable and the staff was very nice and helpfull.

                Considering the price paid, the breakfast could be a little better and have a little more of diversity.
