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...

The room was clean and tidy, bathroom was a positive suprise. Paddington station was very close, like 300m. You could easily walk there. Breakfast was very good english breakfast. Staff was friendly and always there at the reception day and night. Windows in the room were quite thin. You could hear the cars and other noises from the street and...

This is a fairly basic hotel located in a block where all the 3-story buildings have been converted to small hotels. The room was quite small, but adequate; the bath was comparatively large and had a large luxurious tub! The location is quite good: walking distance from Paddington Station, and with easy access to bus routes and Tube stations that...

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...

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...
