Great visit. Room service tried to get me to pay cash bc my credit card “wasn’t” on file. Other than that it was great!

Enjoyable Hotel for either business or leisure
Enjoyed very much, great hotel/home our second stay in two years. We will definitely return on our next trip to London. They pamper you everyday with little and big daily treats.

Very Good8.0
I thought the service was second to none. Everyone was very helpful. I really only have one issue. Our friends had the same issue. As you take the shower, water leaks out under the glass creating water on the floor. Might want to consider a redesign.
Robert, us3 night trip
The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences, London
Disappointed with room provided to me
While the hotel is in good location and generally a good one, the reason that I'm not giving good rating is because they were painting and doing a repair job on the 7th floor and they decided to give me a room on the same floor and close to the job/repair work. They likely did it because of my skin color.
KISHORE, us5 night business trip
The Athenaeum Hotel & Residences, London
Not impressive
For the amount that I paid, the room was small and the staff was ill-mannered. This is definitely different than what I read from the reviews. Disappointing.
