Fall in Amsterdam
A guest set off the fire alarm in the middle of the night and it took management a while to figure out how to to turn it off. The room was quite small (they said “small” room and it really was) and walls thin. You could easily hear your neighbour. Service was good, room was clean and location convenient.

Great location, quiet. It was very hot and lack of air conditioning did make sleeping a little difficult

Perfect place to stay in Central London!
I loved my stay at the Athena Hotel. I stayed 6 nights in a quadruple room (1 double bed / 2 single beds). The room configuration was great so despite having 4 adults, beds, furniture, and luggage the room did not feel cramped or crowded. I requested a fan and refrigerator in advance and was so pleased to find that both were already set up and ready when I checked in. The room lighting was bright and made the room cheerful. Open windows to allow fresh air in. And the room was stocked with everything I needed (hair dryer; coffee maker, heated bathroom floors, TV, multiple sockets to recharge my electronics - no fighting over who gets to charge their phone first, and great WIFI). The location was perfect and only steps away from Paddington stn, bus, taxi, Uber, hop-on-hop-off bus, restaurants of all kinds (pubs, Chinese, Indian McD, BKing), parks, and souvenir shops. As others have mentioned, there is some street noise that goes late into the night but that did not bother me. If you are a walker, you could easily walk to many attractions within 30mins (Kensington palace, Marble Arch). The hearty English Breakfast was a great way to start a full day of sightseeing. But the best part was the staff who were all friendly, smiling, and welcoming! If ever in London, I would love to stay here again!

Hotel with a good location + value
Good experience with this hotel. The location was what I wanted, being near Paddington for exploring areas around Hyde and Regent's Parks as well as easy access to/from Heathrow via the Tube. Staff were friendly and accommodating, providing extra towels when I asked. Breakfast includes any/all items including: eggs (any style), bacon, sausage, toast, baked beans, orange juice, various cereals, etc, which was more than enough for what I needed. Area was also quiet at night, so no problems getting to sleep. As you can see in pics, the building is an old one (tho pretty normal by London's standards) but the bathroom at least was newer, likely renovated in the last few years. Other than this there aren't really any cons I can find, especially given the price.

Feeling welcome in Paddington
The room was small but clean and cozy and the staff were most friendly and helpful...I'd stay there again in a heartbeat and I love the location so near tube and bus roots to the West End and there is a marvellous little park just around the corner

Fair 4.0
Extremely overpriced hotel
We stayed in a 2nd floor room facing the front. The room did not have air conditioning and was stifling hot so we had to have the window open. At night the noise of the party goers in area was unbearable and went on until 2/3am. The rooms are small and very cramped, barely enough room to swing a cat. Other than the easy access to the Heathrow Express and the friendly staff, there is nothing positive to write about this hotel. We will not be staying here again that's for certain.

Great location, close to the tube, buses and train. The food was good, service was prompt and friendly. The room was clean with lots of power outlets, although a little cramped. The staff are friendly and very helpful with tour and transportation details. Family friendly place.
