The most prestigious area in London, Mayfair, is famed for its red-brick Victorian townhouses, fine dining restaurants, high-end boutiques and Savile Row tailors. While there are some nice luxury hotels to choose from, for a real taste of London, live as a local and get the keys to your own townhouse.

The Athenaeum Hotels & Residences operates a number of residences just around the corner from the hotel, which visitors can rent out as whole townhouses or apartments on a long or short-term basis. Ideal for families or couples seeking privacy, residences are serviced by the hotel’s team, which means that guests can enjoy their space while benefiting from twice-daily maid service and the hotel’s concierge services such as 24-hour in-room dining.

Residences come fully equipped with a kitchenette, a spacious living area with designer sofas and a dining table, elegant bedrooms with King-sized beds and furniture by British designer Julian Chichester, and classic marble bathrooms with spacious walk-in showers and heated floors. In the cupboards, visitors filled with all the essential amenities you’d have at home, including picnic baskets that visitors can take to Green Park, opposite the hotel. >>
