The Athenaeum is an award-winning, five-star luxury, family-run hotel located in the heart of Mayfair, opposite Royal Green Park.
Championing bespoke British craftsmanship, just like us, the hotel’s rooms, suites, and residences celebrate their Art Deco roots and epitomise their long and proud heritage. The Athenaeum offers a new perspective on London and captures quintessential British living within the vibrant spirit of the city.
Beyond Bespoke's founder and CEO, Lucie, and her husband Robin Hague spent a night at one of their luxurious private residences, fully serviced and with private entrances. This home-from-home experience offered them all the amenities of a five-star hotel, with the freedom of living in their own residence.
“Our night in one of the Athenaeum’s 18 spacious apartments was an experience we’d really been looking forward to. We’ve stayed here a number of times before and enjoyed the hotel’s warm and welcoming service which suits its relaxed, intimate and sophisticated interior, magnificently.
Located opposite Royal Green Park and Buckingham Palace the apartments are just down the road from London's favourite national museums and galleries, and close to world-renowned shops and theatres.
Everything has been considered for your comfort and convenience; the large living room was spacious with a dining table and designer sofas, and the slick fully equipped kitchenette complete with a mini bar stocked with goodies - complimentary crisps, soft drinks, alcohol and Ben and Jerry’s ice-cream. There was a great coffee maker and excellent quality tea for the next morning too.
The bedroom was a great size, easily absorbing the king size bed which was dressed in the best cotton. Such attention to detail offers a casual elegance that clearly shows the clever interior design throughout. The bathroom, again, was well thought out, clad in marble with a walk-in shower. It was such a relief to find great water pressure in the shower - I’m always amazed at how many 5 star hotels slip up on such basic things.
Another simple (but not always offered) 5-star benefit was the peace and quiet. The apartments are located adjacent to the hotel and there is surprisingly little noise. With their own separate entrances, you can escape from the hubbub outside, through your own, very smart front door to a well-appointed sanctuary - including discreet internal entry to the hotel - it really does feel like home.”
