I stayed with my family for 3 nights in August. The hotel is cheap in the context of London but relatively dear in general. Obviously you should expect the very basics when staying in the Athena as it is no frills, functional, inexpensive(for the area) accommodation. Our stay was fine overall. We booked a roon for three and were mistakenly... More

Staying alone for business and stayed in a single room (no.9) Small but not too cramped room with adequate facilities, good shower and fairly comfortable bed. Average service at check-in and over breakfast (went for the Full English which again was adequate). Good location and value for money, room could have done with a lick of paint in the bathroom...

We stayed 3 nights in a family room with our two children. The room was warm and clean, the staff were friendly and attentive and the location was perfect. We were within easy walking distance of Hyde Park and Marble Arch, and on several bus routes (more fun than the underground, which is also very near). The breakfast was good.... More

Myself and my parents stayed here in June 2011 and I can say it was by far the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The room was tiny, the wardrobe and safe were broken in the room, the shower was leaky and made loud noises during the night. The staff were rude and unhelpful and seemed uninterested in doing...
