    Room fine but rest of house in poor state of decor and untidy.

  • Single
    9.6

    The room was very good for one night stay however it was a bit less spacious . Everything was available at any time and the host was ready to help at late hours also. The over all experience was very good

    The only problem was that it was a bit congested other than that the price and everything was wonderfull

  • Group of friends

    great service from the owners. we received breakfast in our room catered to our exact wishes, which was lovely.also, even though there was no luggage storig facility, we were given a key so we could collect our luggage from a private room when we left at 11pm the night of checkout.the staff was trusting, helpful and friendly. the location was perfect as we were visiting the O2 academy 3 minutes down the road. would definitely stay here again!

    bathroom could use some improvement.

    The room was bright and pleasant and the Wifi was working very well.

    It is quite expensive (as everything in England I suppose).

    Lack of parking spaces although advertised on web site

    We are both vegans and the hotel did their best to cater for our dietary needs and were very accomodating. Also liked the system of accessing the hotel when we arrived and the proprietor was not in.

    Breakfast area very small and cluttered.

  • Family with children
    4.6

    Nice room,bright, good location, great tv.clean towels, good bathroom products and good tea making facilities.

    We were woken up several times during the night by people knocking on the front door and our window! Shower had mould round the bottom. The breakfast room was shabby and cluttered. We had booked a twin, but when we arrived there was only a double room.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Athena was very clean and I will stay there again.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Friendly staff, free internet in room

    I think that the price we paid (257 brp for 3 nights) is way too high for this guest house, which is clean and nice but has two-star facilities and no permanent reception

  • Older travelers
    6.6

    Beds comfortable and clean, rooms and kitchen a bit dated and tired. Breakfast nice but small.

  • Single
    8.8

    This hotel is located about 30 min walk to the city centre. The hotel room was clean and comfortable and staff were kind and always willing to help. Breakfast was good. I would recommend this hotel.

  • Family with children
    6.6

    Lots of extras that you wouldn't associate with a budget b and b ie. Toiletries, tea/coffee and lots and lots of milk! Nice furnishings/decor. Lots to eat at breakfast!

    The bathroom was dirty and smelly - it hadn't been cleaned in a while, it was obvious that the sink had only had a quick wipe over recently, the floor hadn't seen a mop for some time and the shower cubicle contained way too much orange! I used wipes to clean the sink, taps, toilet and the floor around the toilet (to try to get rid of the smell).

  • Family with children
    7.0

    We liked the fact that the room was clean and there was coffee/tea facilities, fridge, clean towels, nice tv.

    This was a very low budget room. Not very well organised = they were unsure of our booking, details asked for on a notepad,small breakfast room, noisy at night.

  • Single
    4.6

    The internet facilities are ok.

    The hotel needs serious maintenance, especially on the outside. The owner needs to learn a few things about hygiene while preparing breakfast. He was constantly couching and touching his nose, while also touching food. Paying by creditcard costs extra.

  • Older travelers
    4.4

    We were booking at short notice and there was very little availability close to Oxford city centre, so the fact it had a room to book was the only reason we chose it. The room was reasonably comfortable

    The price was more than the quality warranted. The communal areas were very cluttered/untidy, and indicated a lack of cleanliness. The only fire exit was the single staircase which was not reassuring in the event of an emergency. The man who welcomed us and served breakfast in the morning had a roaring cold (or worse) and sneezed continualy, wiping his hands and face on a rag. At no stage did I see him wash his hands, which gave grave cause for concern about hygiene - he shouldn't have been serving food.
