I recently visited Greece and stayed 5 days in Athens. I stayed at the Athenaeum Intercontinental Athens for the entire period. It is nicely located on Sygrou Avenue (one of the main avenues in Athens) - it is a lovely hotel. At check-in I was upgraded to an incredible suite on the 7th floor with a balcony with awesome views... More

This hotel was perfect for my trip. The quality was high enough, the location was great. You can reach to most important visiting areas by foot or a short ride. If you like to shop, you could do so in the vicinity.

Usually stay at the Hilton in Athens but for logistical reasons we stayed at the Intercontinental this time being closer to our Piraeus office. What a pleasant surprise! Beautiful and well equipped rooms with all the amenities and a very kind welcome basket as a Platinum member. The hotel staff are very helpful, a great buffet breakfast in the morning... More

Great hotel, 500+ rooms with all the amenities you would expect (fitness center, multiple restaurants, concierge service, etc). There is a free shuttle every 20-30 minutes that takes you to the city center (10 min drive). Not much by way of sites or restaurants in immediate neighborhood.

A great place for both business and pleasure. The rooms are brimming with amenities and the beds are exceedingly comfy. The shuttle bus into the city centre is a bonus and runs... More

I stayed here for 5 days for business and was pleased with the service in the hotel, with the conference room space, and with the size of the rooms. The bar/restaurant on the ninth floor is particularly impressive, and a great place to have a drink at the end of the day and view the acropolis on the hill. The... More
