User 19/04/2022

Generally Athena is the place to be , it's neat tidy and you feel welcome. I had a wonderful quiet and peaceful stay while at The Athena. All the staff are welcoming , with a quiet environment and good proximity to grocery stores and supermarkets.

I do really like this hotel,.. I feel like a home. I do travel a lot, I am a member of the major hotel chain and I do very selectively choosing my stay “Hotel”. Especially in this difficult time. It is important all part of the hospitality to be on level. This hotel is. The hotel is very nice good location regards of the availability of the shopping, restaurants, pharmacy. What is for me the most important that is the cleanliness, this hotel is really clean nice. What I like to highlight as well that is the staff. Very good, gentle, kind and professionals. I can specially recommend this hotel for the business peoples, but for others as well, everybody will find good hospitality for himself in this pleasant place.

User 28/07/2021

Great location at The Athena Hotel where everything you need is at your doorstep including beautiful Ugandan Crested Cranes bird, trekking gorilla, airport, hospitals among others. Absolutely amazing! The service is wonderful! The rooms are clean and spacious. The breakfast was fantastic! We were so impressed. Sensational pool, exercise facility/gym, airport shuttles, handicap parking, and access and lovely staff. The natural fauna is beautiful and trekking gorillas are great treats. It's a luxurious oasis and we can't wait to return.

Clever-eyes, United States 26/06/2021

I checked into the hotel as it was the only option as it was close to the offices where I was working. Well, it turned out being the best discovery in a long time. The check in was quick and efficient and Christine was all smiles as she walked me upp to my room. The rooms are clean, comfortable and has good choice of both bed linen and towels. Breakfast is good- consider trying some local breakfast, I found it not only very healthy but filling. Being a botique hotel, the staff will know you within days and I experienced upclose and personal service. It took 24 hours for Sharon to notice I dont take sugar and once I mentioned I was diabetic, some magic was worked out and I was given a customised menu. I felt like Royalty. Will definitely visit again

Thank You At BWP The Athena we offer that superior service in style. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Sharon, Christine and the rest of the Team will be happy to host you once again Edrin

The level of professionalism and service is something to admire about. Early morning breakfast was on time and served in the room. Drop-off to the airport was a breeze with no hustle. Definitely coming back when in Kampala.

GrandTour42773780069, Barranquilla, Colombia 07/06/2021

This hotel is fresh, clean, feels like I'm back in the states. The decor and friendly staff are added bonuses. Location is good for nightlife, upper tier restaurants, Acacia Mall, and located in the Kololo, neighborhood of Kampala, would have given it a 5 star rating but found breakfast to take sometime to serve coffee and food. Ive stayed on 4 different weekends and highly recommend.

"Excellent customer care !!"

5
User 04/05/2021

I mailed three hotels in Kampala to inquire about their rates and only The Athena responded but am glad the rest didn't because the Athena hotel exceeded my expectations. The hotel is very modern but with a distinctly African feel and their rates are relatively affordable. The rooms are spacious and well furnished. The beds are very comfortable. Internet Access is very good, free, and easy to set up. The food is very good and the hotel is surrounded by many bars and restaurants should you want to eat out. I did not get time to use most of the facilities although the pool area and gym looked great. If you are a business traveler or tourist to Kampala I would highly recommend The Athena hotel

Absolutely outstanding hotel perfectly located. Helpful, friendly staff who go above and beyond to make sure you have the best time. It was my birthday during our stay, which we had not mentioned, but they obviously saw that at the check in. It was a lovely suprise when they left a bottle of champagne in the room! Also an excellent breakfast buffet. We will definetely come back with friends and I would highly recommend this hotel.

I definitely recommend this hotel for their excellent service. Their rooms are well-fitted, immaculate and cozy. I am thankful that they have such attentive and friendly staff and that they take necessary precautions in this time of Coronavirus. The food at the hotel's restaurant didn't meet my expectations, but there are a variety of good restaurants located nearby.
