Big clean room. Loby and shops very inviting and looks very good (didnt check prices...) Exellent breakfast. Clean and good service. Spa is big and comfort. Certainly a place to retune to. Located at the very centre on main road.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017

We stayed here for 4 nights. Based on the location, you may think that its inconvenient, so did i until we stayed there. The hotel runs a shuttle service frequent enough for you to be spend the whole day in the city centre. It stops at Acropolis and the main square. So, put your worries aside. You can even take...

The rooms are pleasant, spacious, modern, and well designed/decorated. The public areas are beautiful. The service is truly excellent at every level, the food is great, and there is a free shuttle bus for a 5-10 minutes ride to the city center. Probably the best chain hotel in Athens. Only downside is the surrounding area but the location is convenient...

We arrived from a week in Crete and spent 2nights/3days at the Intercontinental . I choose the hotel based on previous stays at Intercontinental hotels around the world and location. We arrived in the afternoon after 4pm , and the front desk was extremely busy with Emirates and KLM crew check-in . Eventually its our turn not a smile to...

We asked for a quit room and we got it. The standard room was tidy and clean. The view from top of the hotel is wonderful with a few of the Acropolis and the city. Also for a diner or drinks is recommended.

Nothing to really complain. Large rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Decent facilities. A lovely roof top bar overlooking the Acropolis. Down side - the pool is not really for swimming, more of a dip and splash. Food was ordinary. The location is near enough the Acropolis but the area is not Walk friendly. Keep at least an hour to get...

I expect Intercontinental hotels to adhere to high standards. The Intercontinental Athenaeum lacked a few details. The room was nice, but some items for a top hotel were missing. For example, when trying to send laundry out, the paper was missing, so the shirts were taken to the front desk with assurance it would be fine. Two limp, unstarched shirts...
