    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.
