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

Location was great, and reception staff friendly, but room and breakfast.. When we opened door to our room ( 8 ), very strong stench of a damp potatocellar ( read mold ) welcomed us. Room was otherwise clean and no bed bugs, but in the bathroom sink pipes had almost inch mold growth in them. I think the room was... More

This is indeed one of the BEST three(3) star rated hotel I had experienced in LONDON.The hotel is located near PADDINGTON STATION, and one could used the HEATHROW EXPRESS right from the airport to Paddington Station, then a 8-10 minutes walk will take you to the hotel. Many buses stops nearby and can take one to all the sights of... More

The hotel is perfectly situated in Sussex gardens near Paddington station and walking distance to Hyde park. There are good communications just round the corner from the hotel. This is a simple, clean, family run hotel. Don't expect luxury, but you will get a kind wellcome and staff that will do what they can to make your stay a success.... More

We looked for a hotel that was close to the tube, clean w/hot water, low noise level, and close to eateries basically somewhere to crash for the night. This checked off all the boxes.My reservations also included breakfast which was more than decent. London is very tight so you would have to get used to the tight spaces (within in... More

I booked single en-suite for 4 nights @ £45 per night in April 2016. On arrival I was given the option of single (described by the receptionist as very small) or triple which was obviously more spacious. I opted for the triple. At the price I paid I doubt if I could have found a better deal anywhere in London.... More

We booked a one night stay over the London marathon weekend and we're expecting anything. Good staff, clean room, clean bathroom, good breakfast for what we paid overall The only recommendation I would make is to change the tea bags - the tea was dreadful! if the hotel were British owned, this would be spotted! Otherwise, great location to underground,... More

Just spent two nights at the Athena Hotel. Very happy stay, very clean room albeit a little tight. But that won't put us off returning next time we visit London. Parking available at a reasonable extra charge. Very nice stay. Highly recommended.
