This is a fairly nice hotel. Not in the caliber of the Hilton nearby, but not bad at all. The décor reminded me of a spring break hotel. The rooms have nice technology in them. The rooms are big enough for a family of 4 as long as the children are young. There is an iron and safe.The food from... More

We stayed at this hotel after our trip to the Greek islands. While this hotel is not in the ideal tourist centre location of the old city, it's only a short walk to the metro and 2 stops away. The hotel is quite snazzy and decorated in a great modern manner which sets it apart from the usual business hotels... More

While this hotel appears to be downtown, I found it to be slightly beyond walking distance to places of interest, and for some reason it was unusually difficult to get a taxi during my stay there. I also had a problem with an incoming taxi, and the staff was not supportive. Taking the metro is the best option. I understand... More

The Crowne Plaza is a great hotel, with a business centre, pool which was very small but good to cool off after a hot day, beautiful buffet breakfast, a restaurant and bar, 24 hr reception desk, atm and more. What more would you want? Great service and ladies were very friendly. Rooms were big and very clean. Would love to... More

The hotel is located a couple of metro stops from the city centre. Closely connected to bus and metro railway network. Good breakfast and dining facilities. The rooms are small and would be further cramped for in single rooms. Hospitality is fine and of top quality.

I needed to stay by the airport in Athens as i had a long layover and didn't want to go all the way in to the city which is far and expensive via cab. Unfortunately there really aren't many hotels by Athens airport except the Sofitel but its pretty expensive so I opted for the Holiday Inn Express. big mistake.... More

We stayed here the night before our flight back to the USA. It is located 10 minutes from the airport, and the hotel offers a free shuttle every hour. Just make a reservation at the front desk. The hotel is very clean, very modern, and in the middle of nowhere, but is perfect if all you are looking for is... More

On arrival we were very impressed with the lovely spacious room complete with flat screen tv. Liked the fact we were to the back of the hotel no road side noise at all. On reading previous reviews i had mixed views about the hotel & was a bit put off by comments regarding the reception staff but we found them... More

This is a nice hotel and everything we used during our stay was well delivered and of a good standard. Rooms very comfortable and quiet with nice bathrooms This is probably a good location for business travellers but not good for tourists, as its a long walk to all the major sights and nightlife.

Location is quiet and between the airport (10 mins) and Athens. Hotel restaurant is lovely but unfortunately the hotel is near absolutely no other restaurants so you're stuck with the hotel restaurant with its pricey breakfast buffet or a 15-20 minute drive towards Athens. Hotel is spotless and staff is fantastic. The hotel's FREE airport shuttle is a great service... More
