Stayed here recently and while it isn't the most glamorous hotel around it served its purpose well. Our room was in the basement and was small but adequate enough for our use. Comfy double bed and clean bathroom. We only used it for showers and sleep before our busy days sightseeing, so if this is all you are going to... More

We arrived after having booked on late rooms.com some 3 months previously. I received an email from late rooms the day before confirming our booking. When we arrived at the hotel and they had no record of our booking (even though I had rung and booked a parking space weeks before and confirmed the day before). The receptionist spent ages... More

Stayed in a family room for 5 days. Hotel room and bath very clean and near Hyde park and walking distance to paddington station. Big Bus tours stop also very close as well as a big choice of restaurants. We could travel by public transport to Buckingham, Wesminster, London Eye, Big Ben and all other attractions. Great location and good... More

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...
