Hoover is one of the superior vacuum cleaner manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Hoover also has good ratings for its vacuums.


The Hoover Athen is cordless, unlike most of the other vacuums that have been around for around the same time as the Athen which are not cordless.

We compared this vacuum to all the other cordless vacuum cleaners and we think the Electrolux ZB5012[plb_1718455_price], the Koblenz DV-110 KG3[plb_2341400_price], and the Dirt Devil Hand Vac 2.0[plb_3042261_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

5 Reasons Against

Expert Reviews Are Poor

Expert review site Les scored this vacuum 60 out of 100. The vacuum expert review sites aren't convinced by this vacuum cleaner.

Does Not Have a Brush Tool

Most vacuums of this age and type do not have a brush tool. The Hoover Athen is no exception to this as it too does not have a brush tool.

We think you might also be interested in other vacuums which also have a brush tool including the C1433010[pl_1097321_price], or the C1660900[pl_1097323_price] both from Hoover or the Dirt Devil Hand Vac 2.0[plb_3042261_price].

Only One Nozzle

The Hoover Athen is a one nozzle vacuum cleaner. Most of the other comparable spec vacuum cleaners that have been available for more than two years have between one and four nozzles.

Chart Edit

Very Tall

At 1,190 millimeter, the Hoover Athen is quite tall compared to most of the other vacuums that were released more than two years ago. Vacuums of this age and spec have heights of between 170mm and 1,300mm.

3 Other reasons to consider the Hoover Athen

Dry Cleaning Type

The cleaning type of this vacuum cleaner is Dry, which is the most commonly supported cleaning type on vacuums that have been on the market for around the same time as it.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative Dry vacuum cleaners currently available including because of it's better review score, the Hoover C1433010[plb_1097321_price], the Electrolux ZB3011[plb_2636550_price], or the AEG Ergorapido AG 3002[plb_2363400_price].

If the cleaning type of this vacuum is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the ZB3006[pl_2264975_price] (Wet), or the ZB3012[pl_2265004_price] (Wet) both from Electrolux or the Hoover FH50240[plb_2939555_price] (Wet) which also has a higher rating.

Expert Reviews

Avec un affichage clair du niveau de batterie, on gagne un peu en confort d'utilisation. Le nouvel Athen présente aussi une efficacité d'aspiration améliorée, même si pas encore à la hauteur...

Indicateur du niveau de charge de la batterie par paliers
Peu d'entretien et facile
Bonne filtration monocyclonique
Variateur la poigne
Collecteur de contenance confortable et avec trappe
Pas d'aspirateur main
Position de parking mal assure
Lourd et un peu pataud
