We spent 4 nights at the hotel in late December, just before Christmas week. Location: The hotel is located in the southern part of Athens, some 2.5 kilometers south west of Syntagma square. While it IS a walking distance (apx. half an hour), it's not an enjoyable walk at all. The surroundings of the hotel are best described as poor,... More

The hotel is located 5 minutes (drive) away from the main tourist sites in Athens, and puts on a fairly regular free transfer to Syntagma. The tram and metro are also closely nearby so it's well connected, but don't expect to walk to any of the main sites. We let them know we were staying for my wife's 30th birthday... More

Although it's not located in the city centre, but fairly close to the beach and the marina, this giant has all the services of its 5 star rating, including a shuttle to the city center. This way, you can avoid the heavy traffic if that's not your destination. Everyone is very nice and willing to help. I stayed in a... More

Stopped for lunch here whilst on a cruise excursion. The selection of food from a hot and cold buffet was excellent, being typically Grecian food. The service and efficiency of the staff were excellent and their attention to detail very good. The overall impression was clean, tidy and we'll run establishment. If I returned to Athens independently I would most... More

My wife and I had a 10 cruise that was leaving from Athens. I booked the Inter Continental Athenaeum with IHG points. I contacted them for suggestions to get from the airport to the hotel, they arranged for a private driver who picked us up at baggage claim (the cost was 50 euros billed to our room).

This hotel isn't in the greatest area, but it is a nice property, albeit dated. Our room was nice and big, especially for European standards, and the bed was super comfortable. The bathroom was nice but basic. I will say that the bed and linens were super comfortable. We tried to go to the rooftop restaurant on our last night... More

After recently visiting the Intercontinental in Athens whilst visiting Greek family for a wedding, I was left with scars and burns that I will never forget.

Stayed here for a week while on holiday in Athens. Stayed here mainly because had lots of points with both Holiday Inn and Avios to spend so got a very good rate.
