Objectively one of the best hotels in Athens but it is unacceptable for a high class hotel to pay for the wifi and to pay 4.5 Euros extra cost if you order a beer in your room during the normal working hours of the bar. Do they use a taxi to send the beer??? Even then would be cheaper!!!

I stayed one night earlier this week to find out what the hotel is like, in order to spend my birthday there this coming weekend. My first impression was really bad. I was in a wheelchair and instead of agreeing to open the double doors to each side of the revolving door, I was told to go through a service... More

Location: There isn't much around the hotel, mostly garages and empty shops. But the hotel offers a complimentary shuttle into town which is handy. Room: Stayed in a executive room which has been refurbished recently and was very well done. The decor was very nice, bed was very large and bathroom was a good size. Food: Mainly ate in Cafe...

Stayed for two nights after a Cunard cruise. The decor is very cold looking as you walk in and the staff at the front desk reflected this. She was trying to say the right things, but the attitude didn't match the words. The room was spacious and comfortable. Great bathroom. But, any positives for me were outweighed by the fees... More

I found on my recent trip to Athens that most 5 star hotels in Europe are really only 3 or 4 stars in the US. This place was exceptional. The rooms were huge, (even the outdated ones not yet renovated) clean and comfortable. The staff I encountered was friendly and helpful. If you join the rewards club in advance you... More

This is an excellent hotel. The location may be a little off centre but the excellent public transport in Athens makes up for it. Use the tram instead of the metro as the stop is much closer to the hotel. The staff in the hotel are fantastic and they are very helpful. We had our bag stolen while we were... More

I was somewhat discouraged about staying at this hotel after reading some reviews and complaints. That is why I had lower expectations, but overall the hotel is very nice, deserving more credit than most of the average reviews. I got on a cab and as I approached the hotel, the shabby outsode got me worried, but as soon as you... More

I went there with a group of friends, and I honestly was satisfied of the service and the room. Everything was clean, people were nice and helpful as well. However, I must say the location of the hotel was a bit surprising, not to say it was disappointing. Moreover, I would have expected the WiFi to be free, but it... More

I was pretty scathing about the Intercontinental last time I was here but we all deserve a second chance. Broadly, I was more impressed this time.

We stayed overnight before a cruise. It was excellent. The hotel is situated about 2 km from the spectacular Parthenon and the related museum. Our room was comfortable and the staff more than anxious to assist us. The views from the lovely roof top restaurant are special.
