Intercontinental was definitely a pleasurable stay for both my wife and I. We stayed 3 nights on our honeymoon right before heading to the Greek islands. We stayed on the 8th floor, so had the luxury of an open bar which contained beer, wine, and cocktails, and excellent meze (appetizers) daily from 6-9 pm (strongly recommend staying on 8th or...

Strange things: the best restaurant in house is closed on Mondays. For me, strange. I actually never saw a hotel restaurant closed for one day. Not so good: I have eaten one of the "Greek traditional" dishes in Cafe Vienna and it tasted like Hungarian letso out of a can. It even looked like that (sausage with peppers in Hungarian... More

The location of the hotel is inconvenient, basically it is in the middle of nowhere, no restaurant, no shopping, no bar, no nightlife, no sight seeing, nothing. You have to take a taxi or walk for 20 minutes to the nearest tube station. The lobby of the hotel is incredibly empty and decorated with terrible tastes; staff at the reception... More

Ok it might not be in the heart of things, but a good shuttle bus service takes you to the action! Lovely rooms, peaceful hotel, nothing too much trouble, great toiletries, friendly staff. Always restocking your room or cleaning....very good service. Food terrific...but a bit pricey, but well deserves its Michelin stars. On the roof under the stars with great... More

The building is huge and luxury! Close to center but needs a car or a scooter. There is a bus service of the hotel though. Big rooms and comfortable bad. Swimming pool did not meet my expectations. However, it is a 80/90 hotel and all services provided are extra!!! Wi-Fi is 6€ per day for only 2 devices!! If you... More

With Greece still in economic crisis, the Greeks we meet are trying incredibly hard to attract customers and remain competitive.....apart from this hotel. I'm not the only Trip Advisor reviewer to complain about the prices of food & beverages here. €6.50 for a small coke by the pool and €14.50 for a vodka / orange are nothing short of guest... More

This is my second time staying here (last in 2009) and it never disappoints. Room was clean and always well-stocked with towels and toiletries. Staff went out of their way to make our visit pleasant, and everyone was friendly. The breakfast was outstanding. We also visited the roof terrace for some great night photos of the city and Acropolis. Because... More

The hotel is nice and clean. The staff is friendly except for the bad shuttle services. The location of the hotel is not close to downtown so the hotel provided shuttle services under the first come first serve basis but they don't provide guests with the information. If you don't get a seat, you have to wait half an hour... More

Was there for only a short stay. Was worried that hotel was not so new, so was pleasantly surprised when I arrived. I was given a superior room in what I believe is the renovated wing of the hotel.
