Stayed here for business during the austerity riots. The hotel gave me a very nice, clean and spacious suite (thank you). Although the hotel is not located in the most romantic neighborhood, it's central to Plaka, Neo Psychico and Harbor and taxi or metro will get you there quickly, shuttle could run more frequently. Top floor restaurant and breakfast are... More

Friendly staff. Clean hotel. Early Check in toke us time, even though I called two times before travelling notifying of my early check in at 12 pm. Overall it was a pleasant stay. Just try to find a room close to the elevator.

Really nice hotel, courtesy bus into centre of Athens every hour (every half hour at peak times). Amazing view from the rooftop restaurant (food here excellent but not cheap) can use the bar if you don't want to eat. Food in Cafe Zoe (by the pool) and Vienna Lounge also very good. Staff very helpful and attentive. Free wi-fi for... More

We stayed at this hotel during our tour of Greece this summer. The location was good, but the rooms are in need of an update. It was relatively clean, but nothing to rave about. They did have a shuttle to the center, which was nice, but it didn't run very frequently. Decor in common areas, which I typically notice, again... More

I made a reservation and tried to cancel the next day but they wouldn't cancel even though it was about 6 weeks out People make mistakes some times and don't read the fine print about cancelation policy and its not fair to take 920 dollars from some one and knowing you could've easily resold that room

The hotel is modern in design both inside and out, lots of marble in the main lobby with wide open spaces leading to the coffee shop, restaurant and pool area. We stayed on the Club Intercontinental level and checked in on that level. The rooms were large and comfortable and bathrooms were again large and functional but both the room... More

Most of what we can say about this hotel is positive. Everyone on the staff was de minimus helpful and in many cases worthy of praise. Breakfast was plentiful and well worth the additional money to sign up for it. Lunch in the downstairs small dining area, in part of the lobby ( we were too late for breakfast one... More

We found a good deal online to stay at the intercontinental in the club rooms. Not much to say as at the end of the day it's just your standard big hotel chain, which I personally don't like, but everything about our stay was excellent. Being the club rooms you have your own check in and concierge, and the service... More
