I unfortunately was embarrased about the condition of this hotel. First they wanted to give us a room in a building across the road, but we even didn't get there because we couldn't use the steeping stairs without any rail. Then we got a double instead of a twin room, which formerly must have been a kitchen (with blinded windows i.e.) and it, though renovated, still hat this atmosphere. It even had various lacks like the "kitchenette" had no fridge (but a washing machine) but not the facillities to use it, the bathroom was so small that it caused physical injuries etc. So I cannot see where the 2 stars are, the hotel were given. But I don't blame the hotel for that, but the fundamental problem is, THEY DON'T KNOW, how to run a hotel. The stuff tried to do everything to satisfy us (gave us a second bed the next day and a fridge) but they were overcharged with everything they did. They stuffed one hole with another, as we say in German, and nobody wins with that approach. BTW, breakfest, though only continental, was more than average - it could have been a bit more diverse, (only one sort of jam i.e.) but it was rich and comfortable.

The affordable price of the accomadation does not directly reflect the quality of the hotel, i am amazed with the room conditions which is clean and the hotel locations which is near to the turnpike lane underground station (picadilly line underground station) which make it easy access to anywhere in london. On top of that,the room were big with attached toilets and were equiped with heater, water heater and cooking essentials such as oven,kettle and stove(you can definately cook inside your room. As overall , i`m fully recommend whoever who is planning to make a visit to london which are looking for a budget hotel, consider about athena palace which also provide complimentary breakfast, it is worth to be there for couple , family or friends.
