This was just a one night stay as we were in transit and did not need to stay in London for long. The whole hotel could do with some updating of decor…I do not mean modern I mean fresh paint and new bed linens. Although I did expect the room to be smallish I was happy to see a nice... More

We stayed in a family room for 3 on a Sunday evening after the Radio 2 Festival in a day at Hyde Park. The hotel is about 10-15 minutes walk from the Marble Arch end of Hyde Park and is situated on a pretty quiet road. The staff were very friendly on check in and at breakfast the next morning....

I've been travelling with my friend for the last month, our travel agent booked our accommodation at the Athena. We had low expectations, based on the general consensus of 'cheaper' London accommodation. The room we were given was quite noisy (no fault of the hotel, just noisy neighbours), we asked if it was possible to be moved after our first... More

Stayed here as we attended Radio 2 festival in Hyde Park and this was convenient. The room was really small,there was me,my husband and our 12 year old daughter but the double bed was comfortable and my daughter said her single was fine too. Nice room,we were only there to sleep and it was clean with everything we needed. Breakfast... More

Stayed for 2 nights to attend concerts in Hyde Park which was a ideal location with easy access to Paddington station. I booked a double room when we got there turned into a family room which I never gave a thought about until I opened the bedroom door, in a small space they had squeezed a small double bed, a...

Breakfast is ok for this level of hotel. Got the family room which is a bunk bed and 2 doubles. No AC so if you're looking for that it could be troublesome. Remodeled bathroom so definitely usable. Safe with 6 number combo so a little more learning curve to use. Excellent location, close to underground and of course paddington station,... More

This is the most disgraceful hotel I have ever stayed in. On arrival we were told our room was not ready, we were happy to leave our luggage and return in a couple of hours; which we did and still our room was not ready. Eventually by 18:30 we were able to check in, with three very tired children we... More

We re a family of 4 (2 teenagers) and planned to spend 2 nights at this hotel in London. The reception area is very bland but the rooms are tiny. We had problems moving around or even just opening our luggage. Being that we arrived in the evening, we just had dinner nearby before sleeping. The breakfast next morning is... More

Athena Hotel is near Paddington Station, so we stayed there for a night before catching the Heathrow Express the next morning. Great location, lots of things going on in the neighborhood, close to Hyde Park. Only complaint was that there is no A/C, fairly common for London - we were there on the hottest day of the year so it... More
