Loading reviews for Athenaeum Hotel and Apartments


Enjoy life in London's swanky Mayfair with a stay at the art deco-inspired Athenaeum Hotel & Residences, located opposite the beautiful grounds of Green Park.

Eye-catching from street level, the hotel’s exterior features a Living Wall, an art installation covering the facade in calming greenery.

The spacious bedrooms have floor-to-ceiling windows and come with views of the leafy park or the bustling streets of Mayfair. Stay inside the five-star hotel or at one of their serviced, self-catering apartments in the red-brick townhouse next door.

Guests can also treat themselves to some 'me-time' at The Athenaeum’s award-winning spa.

Can you eat and drink at The Athenaeum Hotel?

The hotel’s main restaurant 116 at The Athenaeum serves up contemporary British cuisine using seasonal ingredients. Alongside à la carte dining, there’s a delicious taster menu of signature dishes recommended by the Head Chef.

On a sunny day, The Terrace is a lovely spot to enjoy a three-course meal or drinks alfresco. It’s open all year with blankets and shelter available for cooler days. Afternoon tea is also served, with vegan and 'bottomless' options available.

A smart destination for evening drinks, The Bar at The Athenaeum is a cosy and convenient space with plush sofas and private nooks. The drinks menu includes whiskies from around the world and a zero-waste cocktail.
