Stayed at the hotel for 5 days on business. For business travellers preferring a somewhat standardized yet top notch service package the hotel is close to perfect. Cleary the competitive pressure has brought this place to its peak. Things worht noting: High-quality breakfast, reasonable gym, free wifi for "members", very good dinner options (at about twice the price of the... More

Stayed here twice in August. Found the staff to be very helpful. Easy to get to the various tourists sites and the concierge was helpful in getting taxis. Sad to see so much graffiti around the city. Visited the little shop across the road for a quick snacks. There is also a little convenience stand just around the corner to... More

Hotel is a little out of the centre but offers a free shuttle bus and in the evening the taxis are pretty cheap. We upgraded our room to be on the newer renovated 7th floor giving us access to the club lounge. It was 60 euro's per night to upgrade. As the breakfast is a staggering 37 euros per person... More

at 10 minutes walking to reach the Plaka, this hotel is just fantastic. Rooms are big and modern, the breakfast is very good and the restaurant on the top is so good. The decoration is also very nice, the gym and the pool is perfect.

We were spending holidays in Cyprus and got so bored we decided to hop by Athens for a few days. Service - very pleasant and helpful staff Location - not exactly in the heart of the centre. However just a 15 minute walk. The area used to be the avenue of brothels and strip clubs. A few left but overall... More

spacious rooms, quality amenities; free shuttle bus available every half hour into the center of Athens; the buffet breakfast was quite pricely so we opted to eat at local restaurants at the Plaka; secured a very good price on hotels.com well beneath what was offered at the hotel website.

The Intercontinental provides a great home from home in Athens. All the amenities are of a high standard. Staff have characteristic Greek warmth. The hotel is located a little distance away from the city centre but there is a complimentary shuttle bus every half hour into town (make mental note of drop off point as it isn't marked) that connects...

Having returned to this large hotel after many years, the first impression was negative: while we were only some 30 minutes early before their official check-in time, we accepted their "offer" to pay € 40 extra per night to check-in immediately, with the added pleasure of having a view onto the Acropolis. I am quite sure that in this huge... More
