Why We Love This Hotel

  • A 5-star hotel in Mayfair, a short walk from Hyde Park and Buckingham Palace
  • Former guests include Elizabeth Taylor, Steven Spielberg, Russell Crowe and the boy band Take That
  • The on-site Galvin restaurant has two AA Rosettes and is run by Michelin-starred chefs
  • You can take in uninterrupted views across London from the guest-only The View club on the hotel's top floor


The AA 5-Red-Star Athenaeum Hotel & Residences is on Piccadilly in London's Mayfair, opposite Green Park and a 10-minute walk from Hyde Park. The property has long been associated with the rich and famous -- the illustrious guest list includes Elizabeth Taylor, Steven Spielberg, Russell Crowe and the boy band Take That.

"The staff are particularly warm, natural and friendly" (The Daily Telegraph) at this prestigious address. You can visit high-end designer boutiques and stores on Old Bond Street or in Burlington Arcade. Alternatively take a 10-minute walk to see an exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, witness the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace, or admire the historic buildings of St James's.

The hotel's REN Spa offers a variety of treatments, and also has cedar wood hot tubs, a sauna and a gym. The hotel's Galvin restaurant, founded by Michelin-starred chefs Chris and Jeff Galvin, has two AA Rosettes. Leather chairs and plush sofas provide comfort in THE BAR, a place to try one of the venue's signature cocktails. The View is a guest-only club on top of the building with uninterrupted views over the city's skyline.

Rooms are decorated with London-inspired artwork, and include a Bose docking station, a flat-screen TV, Wi-Fi and Nespresso machines.
