I spent two evenings here on a business trip. The rooms are not up to intercontinental standards. They are poorly decorated and do not appear to have been renovated in the last 20 years. The beds are uncomfortable and the room does not have adequate plugs for charging devices. The plugs that are available are in awkward locations, requiring you... More

A comfortable, predictably clean and well-managed hotel. Exceptionally kind and courteous service, especially the bell staff and Premiere restaurant staff (covered in another review). Location is a brisk 20 minute walk from the sites.

Really enjoyed staying at this hotel, staff were friendly and extremely helpful. We stayed on the Club Floor - worth paying the extra and the Club lounge was exceptional. The staff working there were brilliant - one of the best Intercontinental hotels we have stayed at.

Last week I stayed here and took my daughter on my trip.I emailed the hotel the day before asking if they could possibly let me have a room with twin beds as my daughter would be accompanying me. They acknowledged my email upon checking in, but when we... More

I was surprised to find that the hotel did not offer free wi-fi which is a basic service... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights in March 2015. Check in was good. As a Platinum Ambassador, I was entitled to a one category room upgrade, however disappointingly I only received a room with a slightly better view. I booked a Club Intercontinental room and the next room type (as advertised and sold) was Junior Suite. All other... More

Very nice business hotel, friendly staff, all the amenities you would need, large comfortable rooms, very nice conference facilities. Only downsides, drinks very expensive in the bars, not in the nicest part of Athens, although not sure there were too many nice parts.
