I was nervous about staying at the Athena based on other traveler reviews. After staying here for a week, I'm confused...did these people stay at the Athena? Are they used to a Ritz experience? I've stayed in all types of hotels and the Athena was a perfectly decent, if not wonderful, very affordable hub for our weeklong adventure in central...

The hotel is clean, breakfast is just ok and people very very kind. I would stay there again and again. I have red some really bad reviews about the hotel but I have decided to stay there because of the price and location, and we liked it. We like specially the bathroom, the silence during the night, the kindness of...

The location was great but the room was tiny and the shower was tinier. I could feel all the springs about to pop through, which made sleeping very difficult. The man at the front desk spent more than half an hour trying to connect me to the hotel wi fi, but never succeeded. The breakfast was tolerable. For one night,...

Very clean, all staff were friendly. More was very suitable (1 night stay) short walk to Hyde Park for WinterWonderland, round the corner from Paddington station. Shame we only walked that way on leaving - as many restaurants and bars. Would definitely return. Thank you for being so welcoming.

Stayed here for a week in October in room #13. Everything was fine overall during our stay. Unfortunately, my family of 4 all developed scabies (which is caused by mites burrowing into your skin causing very itchy bite-looking spots) from our stay there. I emailed the hotel twice about this, and no one replied to me. Very disappointed.

Have stayed in a few hotels on Sussex Gardens, this by far was the most modern! Key cards a lift and swanky reception area. Was welcomed with a smile and was quickly checked in! The only problem I had was getting into the room, as the lock was a tad temperamental. Breakfast was good small but well cooked, not a...

We have stayed in various hotels in the same immediate area over the last few years and found the Athena Hotel was without a doubt the best experience. The rooms were very clean and comfortable with all the extras ie, extra pillows and towels , a safe for valuables and a very modern up to date bathroom . The staff...
