A chic five-star Mayfair hotel with Michelin-starred dining and bright, modern interiors - includes the option of breakfast

The Athenaeum, in London's Mayfair, earns each of its five stars with its unbeatable central location, fantastic service and great attention to detail. A stickler for getting things just right, this hotel presents iconic, awe-inspiring Art Deco interiors, alongside Michelin-starred fare and all-round excellence.

Headed by two Michelin-starred London chefs, the exceptional restaurant has a refined atmosphere, and serves gourmet treats made with ingredients sourced from independent British farmers. The intimate and inviting bar packs a punch with its craft spirits and cocktails, and the afternoon tea is quite something to write home about, too. Naturally, The Athenaeum has pocketed a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence.
