Athenaeum Hotel

Close to Hyde Park, the Edwardian-style Athenaeum Hotel offers high degrees of romance and class. Within walking distance of high-end shops and Buckingham Palace, the Athenaeum Hotel is well positioned to experience both the big tourist sites and the subdued aura of London's bourgeoisie. A five-minute walk from Green Park tube station and directly opposite St James's Park, Buckingham Palace is just across the park and the fancy cakes and teas of Fortnum & Mason are a few minutes' walk up the road. Tourists of London will appreciate the convenience of the tube and proximity to Marks & Spencer, while lovers can stroll around to Shepherd Market's restaurants or hire decks chairs and watch the flow of pedestrians through St James's Park.
