Quite a distance from the city center. You need to take a tram or walk 20-30 minutes. Some guests are lucky to have a partial view of Acropolis, but do not count on it. Hotel is huge so there are long corridors leading to the rooms. Still, lifts are fast and do not get congested. Very good breakfast and excellent... More

Excellent hotel. Location isn't great but after flying from the US it was a great place to relax for a while before hitting the sights. The rooms are large and have a separate living room. Great for entertaining.

Here you can feel the real natural welcome by entering from the street by car. We stayed on the Club floor which is a little more money the room was spacious in perfect location and very comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful, and the Club lounge amongst the best encountered anywhere.

I was part of a largish delegation from India staying at this hotel for 3 nights in the first week of April 2014. While we had another delegation from Italy in the same hotel, the place never seemed really crowded. Breakfast was good, specially at Cafe Zoe.

Rarely one finds an option of a large modern hotel which is walking distance from an ancient landmark like the Acrapolis. Intercontinental Athens is one such great option. I found the rooms to be large and classy. The breakfast is excellent. The toiletries in the bathroom is Korres, an upmarket Greek brand. The service is quite prompt. The staff is... More

Looks like a low budget intercon, surprised to see it lacks a lot of facilities. The suit is a bedroom and a dinning room!!! Bedroom doesn't have a window! Electrical socket isn't working! Location isn't the best, away from all attractions.

After surprising my partner with two nights at the InterContinental Athenaeum instead of the usual hostel I must say the entire experience was amazing. The reception and bar staff were pleasant and helpful and while some may complain about the location we found it within walking distance to Athens' main attractions (20 minutes to Temple of Olympic Zeus, 30 minutes...

Stayed here for a work conference, then spent a few extra days with my wife. Hotel neighborhood leaves something to be desired, but they run a free shuttle downtown on a regular basis.

The staffs are helpful and so friendly. There's a shuttle that drops & pick-ups at the center of the city with a very friendly schedule. There's an excellent greek restaurant 10min walking distance with delicious cheese bites! Wifi, not too good. Security, excellent. Smile, perfect!
