A beautiful property, huge rooms with extremely comfy beds, great pool and exceptionally helpful and friendly staff. The courtesy bus to the City centre is good. We spent nearly a week at this hotel for a conference my husband was attending and it couldn't have been nicer!fantastic breakfast!

Key points:-

- location, okay but always lots of taxis so not an issue when you need to get anywhere but not very family friendly around the hotel (red lightish)
- staff, wonderful, can't do enough to help
- rooms, good size with comfy beds, reasonable shower
- food, room service very efficient and quality reasonable. Breakfast is very good but expensive unless you get included in your room rate

Not so good: -

- Internet, chargeable and intermittent quality
- Toilet paper, odd I know to mention but probably the cheapest anybody could buy. At €150 a night, you expect better!

Went there with my new wife on honeymoon. Service at the hotel was lovely. We stayed in a club room which was a good idea. The club room gives you access to the club lounge which means free breakfast before 9 am, free canapés around lunchtime and free appetizers with unlimited drinks around dinner. There is a bar and a restaurant on the roof, we had drinks there once and paid €22 for one whiskey and one coke. we didn't drink there again. we used the hotel shuttle to get to Syntagma but a taxi back was easier. Getting on the shuttle at Syntagma is not an easy trick and the taxi cost around €4. Taxis are a relatively effective. If we missed the shuttle we'd just get in the taxi, there is usually a row of them outside the hotel. There was a period where some bigwig was staying at the hotel and the taxis were moved around the corner as a security measure. I think the "security measure" was the idea of the police rather than the hotel. Greek police are generally rather ham handed in my opinion and while they were guarding the bigwig, they were generally very artless when talking to the patrons of the hotel. I'm not sure why the hotel tolerated it. during this period there was also a metal detector to protect Mr. bigwig which meant the rest of us were treated like criminals on the way into our hotel. we get the same treatment in airports and we treat it as a necessary evil because we don't have a choice. in hotels we do and a lot of people exercised their choice. had the hotel been poorer mr bigwig would have stayed somewhere else.

Dear Yinka Y,
Thank you for choosing to stay at the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens during your honeymoon and for taking the time to write a review.
We are delighted to learn that you enjoyed the service from our staff and that our Club InterContinental facilities contributed to making your stay a pleasurable one.
In regards to the security measures in place during your stay, we would like to take this opportunity to explain that our hotel was chosen to accommodate the European Defence Ministers during their meeting in Athens under the auspices of Greece’s European Presidency. We do regret the inconvenience the security measures caused you, however we were obligated to follow the strict security measures in place by the Greek authorities, in order to ensure the safety of all our residents.
Furthermore, we would like to assure you that while these events are indeed rare, we have designated staff members who liaise with the police in order to achieve the least possible inconvenience to our guests.
Once again, thank you for sharing your comments and we hope to welcome you back to the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens.
Yours sincerely,
Martha Pallis
Guest Relations Manager

No issues, staff is helpful and friendly.

If you are looking for a 5 stars hotel this is a good option

No surprises neither negative or positive

Staid for 3 days this winter on my company yearly kickoff meeting.

Conference room is also really good for large audiences.

I stayed with a friend for New Years Eve and we had a suite with access to the Club House. A good hotel but decor is very dated and needs a refresh. Staff were very friendly and were keen to provide an excellent service. The hotel has all the facilities you need, however, the pictures in our suite and in the hotel generally are very odd! The New Years Eve buffet was excellent in terms of food and choice, however, they made little effort to celebrate midnight New Year. We were expecting a big fanfare, music and fireworks but it was very low key.

Room Tip: Avert your eyes to the dated decor and dreadful choice of pictures especially in the Club House and...
