    Good option outside district 1”

    I have been staying at Athena on every trip except my last one and i came to realize you do get what you pay for and much less. My wife wanted to save some money and try a cheaper hotel outside of district 1 where her family lives. Looked and only found 3 or 2 star hotels that are not worth their cheap price. The rooms had smells coming from the vents and drains. If you are not used to the traditional viếtnamese bathroom/ shower setup, you won't like it here. Athena feels comfortable and clean. These 2-3 star hotels or love hotels were asking $35 per night... Pay additional $10-20 you can get a better deal at Athena. They throw in a free buffet breakfast too. We wasted money on taxi looking for a cheaper hotel and ended back staying at Athena.

    Very happy during with our stay”

    We’ve spent 5 night in Athens hotel. The staff from the first moment was very polite and attend to what we needed. The breakfast was every day the same, but huge variety for every one. We appreciated that the restaurant is on the 10th floor with a view over the whole city. The hotel is located close to lots of restaurants and a huge super market. The windows are a high quality, so we had a very quite room. The guy outside the hotel was very helpful with the taxi and crossing the street. The gym and the massage area looked like under construction, but that didn’t bothered us. Very high recommended hotel.

    Clean, lovely, bright, modern right in the thick of it all in Ho Chi Minh!”

    If you're older like me and just about done with all the "backpacking through Asia" thing, and you need absolute comfort and amenities now... well.. THIS is the spot for YOU! Upscale modern, super clean, lovely attentive staff, and COMFY beds (no rock-hard slabs here) Breakfast is fantastic as well. They were doing some improvements to the breakfast area when we arrived and it was quite noisy but that's the only reason for 4 out of 5 on the facilities side. They really made our stay lovely and painless after traveling 15 hours. Check this place OUT if you need comfort away from home...

    Great upper-scale modern hotel right in the middle of HCM”

    Only reason for four stars on the facility end is that they are doing a lot of repair / construction work and it’s right where we all have breakfast so lots of men walking around above us from the top floor very loud. Other than that the place is beautiful, well appointed, very modern, super clean, the staff is attentive, very welcoming and super helpful with taxis outfront on the very busy streets! I’ll definitely be returning to this hotel on my next visit to HCM.

    Fantastic Hotel with great room and helpful staff”

    Stayed in Athena for 4 days and 3 nights (15.5-18.5). Overall it was a fantastic stay. Hotel located in District 10 about 15 minutes from the main city by taxi. Easy to get taxi and very convenient. The staff were very helpful and the tours offered at the hotel was worth it. The breakfast was very decent with quite a good selection and fresh watermelon juice. The hotel rooms were modern with good lighting and the bed was very comfortable. toilets were clean and the shower was decent. I would definitely recommend the hotel for business travellers as well as groups of friends.

    The hotel a little far from downtown, but taxi is cheap and easy to get, so it should not be a problem. Rooms are roomy and clean. Linens feel like brand-new, which I love the most about this hotel. The staff are friendly and attentive, althought should be improved in English skill. The breakfast is heavenly nice and delicious. This restaurant in the top floor rivals many five-star restaurant in the city

    Hotel Review ”

    The Wifi was average at best. At night when the guests where back at the hotel and logged in the wifi signal would get very low and I had many drops. Also the restaurant was on the 11th floor but the elevator only went to the 10th. As a person with a bad hip the stairs to the 11th floor was a challenge. My last comment the TV selection was very good with the exception of no news channels, no BBC no CNN. My room was excellent and so was the shower with exceptional hot water.

    Staff. Food. Beautiful New Room

    We stayed for 2 nights as I was about to head back to the states. Staff was helpful bringing my luggage in and out from hotel room to taxi. I requested 2 hours extra because my flight is in the evening and we got 1hour, i was grateful for that as most hotels stick to their policy. Room is so clean and smells wonderful. New EVERYTHING 2014. It was a wonderful experience. Beautiful balcony view of the city from the restaurant, on 11th floor. Massage on the 1st floor with gym / free 100k voucher (5usd). I would highly recommend this hotel if you can afford a 4 star or top tiered 3 star, the price is reasonable and also includes breakfast for 2. Although kind of far from Ben Thanh market, taxi would cost from 3-5 dollars. But it's halfway to the Airport from ben thanh as well.

    Fix the !#$%^ Internet!!!”

    newness, room comfort, good bed

    The Athena is an well priced, new hotel. It's new and clean, and the rooms are well outfitted. Our only real complaint was the internet service. There's no protection against bulk downloading (and presumably bulk uploading and email) and the speed would vary from good to nearly stopped all the time. Unfortunately it was in the "nearly stopped" condition MOST of the time. For a 5 day stay, we complained about the internet speed on 4 of the days, and each time were told that their "engineer" would look into it. But even with instructions from us on how to block the ports and load balance, they were unable to fix anything. The Athena's great if you don't need internet, and you don't mind taking a taxi to everyplace you would go. If local restaurants and shopping is important, it's not the place for you.

    Great Hotel, Out of the way location”

    New Hotel, Very good rooms, Nice staff

    The Athena is a very nice hotel with value pricing, even though it could be compared against 5-star foreign brands. The hotel is newly constructed, and has a quality feel. The rooms are nicely appointed and the included breakfast was very good. The one problem with the place it it's location. While it says on Agoda that there is shopping nearby, it's really limited to home construction supplies (tile, glass, flooring, bathroom fixtures. etc.) and a Big-C. There are not many restaurants or cafes nearby (one Lotteria), and the street it's on doesn't have any non-building material retail (for at least a kilometer). The only other problem was the slow internet. Not unique for hotels, but they clearly don't have enough bandwidth for the number of rooms they have. If you don't mind taking taxis everywhere, and you KNOW where to tell the taxis to go, this would be a good hotel. If you plan on strolling around, perhaps look somewhere else.
