Not as bad as reviews said
For one night it was fine. I wouldn't use it for a holiday, but for business or short stay it was ok.
Curtains could be thicker. Was woken at half 6 by sunlight
Get new towels
The wi-fi speed was decent
The towels are pre-cambrian with holes the soze of pangea and need to be replaced. There were chunks of food and cigarette butts on the window ledge (outside). TV didn't work. Walk-through was rushed and rude.
decent breakfast (for £3.50 could have a full english). Comfortable, warm rooms with sky digital. Very fast and decent wi-fi which was essential for me.
no reception. Had to wait outside in the cold for 20mins to be let in on arrival and breakfast not on time some days (had early meetings so this was crucial for me).
Athena is a very convenient guest house. The service and the welcoming attitude of the stuff make me feel like home.
Athena Guest is placed within a reasonable distance from Oxford city centre - 5-10 minutes by bus. There are lots of restaurants in the area and a supermarket as well.
We stayed in a triple room, which was rather small. The windows did not close properly and, despite good heating, the room was quite cold. The fan in the room next door made an awful noise; luckily the owner fixed it. Breakfast is served only from 8 to 8,45, which was rather strict.
Soft white fluffy towels, a pleasant room,a good quality hairdryer and a very generous breakfast.
I think it would be better if they said there was no parking and made the front area atractive and maybe put some seating out there.
The location to an event on the Cowley Road. Clean room, clean bathroom and comfortable bed.
Overall shabbiness front door in dire need of a coat of paint, covered in scruffy notices, dead flower pots.Furniture not matching and looked as though picked up in a junk shop, wires everywhere and TV held up with bungy straps! Nothing aesthetically pleasing! Overall a tatty B&B with expensive hotel prices! Being woken up by teenagers running riot around the B&B at 3 oclock in the morning and .no one in charge living here. Being called prior to arrival and asked if we could pay in cash or debit card. Costs for credit card use should be absorbed by the rate of the hotel.I though a cooked breakfast should be included in the expensive price and not extra.
the food (breakfast), the bed, the shower room
curtains were not thick enough to keep out the light at night time (room 2)
Clean bright room, very tidy
Extra bed for following guests made room slightly cramped, but presumably not usually present
Clean room. Served it's purpose as a B&B. Situated on the Cowley road which is well worth a stroll down. Check out the great street art on the buildings and the eclectic mix of shops. Twenty minutes and your in the heart of the city.
Didn't realise the guest house was situated opposite the biggest nightclub in Oxford! On our nights stay Radio1 were playing a gig and it was a bit lively. We could hear from our room yet it wasn't too bad. Something to bear in mind though.
Room was well laid out and perfectly clean and tidy.
Dining area was a little small which meant we had to wait a while for breakfast.
