Front of office staff were excellent, and was a nice touch to have the manager and guest relations manager come and introduce themselves. The room itself is tastefully appointed, but a little dated. Very comfortable bed. The hotel is a 5 minute cab ride to the main touristy sites. Apparently there is public transport too but we didn't have time... More

I've stayed for business at the Intercontinental in Athens. The welcome was very warm and the team was much interested how they could be of assistance during my stay. That in itself was the warmest and most personal welcome I've had throughout the year. It speaks for itself that the rest of interaction with staff was a great from concierge... More

I do not understand some of the bad reviews of this hotel! This is a great hotel...ok so you are far from the main sights, but honestly it takes 3-4 euro in a taxi to get to main center or you can always use the free shuttle provided by the hotel or there is a tram which takes you there... More

Overall this hotel offers the complete package. The location is very convenient with the Kassamouli tram stop 3 mins walk from the hotel and only 4 stops from Syntagma Sq. The concierge is very helpful, the rooms are a little dated but very clean and comfortable beds. The pool is small for the size of hotel and gets busy from... More

The hotel is about 10 minutes from the central square... but its a great hotel with excellent service. We paid extra for the club floor, and it was well worth it.

Good hotel, nice and clean rooms. Breakfast is EXCELLENT at Zoe. Pool is nice but could be opened until later during summer. Dont miss Privilege restaurant(nice gastronomic experience, pricy though) or bar on the top with a nice view of the Acropolis. Wifi could be free, they charge 6 euro/day.

We stayed here for a short 2 night stay in Athens and was perfect for what we wanted. The staff were great and the hotel was very clean. Nothing really to complain about, other than the distance into centre, but the free shuttle helps with this.

InterContinental Athenaeum Athens stands on a side road off the main drag (Syngrou) from central Athens to the coast. It is ideally situated for both Athens and Piraeus which are both a quick, cheap taxi ride away. The hotel has a shuttle bus with regular trips to the central square (Syntagma) where tourists are minutes from Plaka, the Parliament buildings... More
