“Shop around first - high prices - no frills”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

If you have become used to free Wi-Fi and breakfast with a room costing well over 100 Euros then this place will disappoint you. I am stunned that a world known hotel chain is still charging for Wi-Fi, and for the price of breakfast you can buy a great meal in downtown Athens. This hotel is a stop-over point for the Athens airport. It is a cookie cutter hotel with a standard formula. I stayed there on two different overnight passages and would not do so again. There are better hotels at a quarter the price a few miles away with more access to the many restaurants with Wi-Fi and breakfast provided. We stayed in one of these hotels on arrival and regret that we opted for the convenience of airport proximity. If you are on a quick turn in Athens airport this hotel may suffice, if not, shop around.

Room Tip: Shop around. It isn't that far to go to find better value.

I stayed at this hotel to save paying a large taxi fare into athens. If your flight is early you are stuck out as the shuttle starts at 530am. The fare from hotel to airport is 23euros. The distance is 10km. I pay 49 euros to go to piraeus which is 43km. Whats up with that. Holiday inn should know many people fly early and that they stay there to avoid paying large taxi fares.

Clean businesslike hotel. Good treadmills, also the sports area is clean. The swimming pool is kind of cold. Very expensive breakfast and wifi charge, didn't use them. Though very practical if needing to get to early morning flights.

The hotel is located 10 km far away from the airport, rooms are big and clean, there's a mini van every 30 minutes to the airport.
The breakfast is nothing special, sometimes you have the feeling that something is from the day before and even dishes in the restaurant are not what you expect from a 4 stars hotel.
There is a gym and swimming pool but all around there's nothing, just a gas station and bus stop.

I have just spent one evening at this hotel and although it is not directly next to the airport it is only approx a 10-15 min drive. Unforutnately the hotel website fails to advise just how limited their shuttle bus service is - stopping at 22.00hrs from the aiport and only operating hourly .... not a very good servicefor a Holiday Inn. Internet charges over priced. Unfortunaly my bath was full of bodily hairs which did not belong to me ..... Definately not impressed

I stayed only for one night in hotel due to my flight connections. Had to wait for around 45 minutes at the airport for the shuttle. Driver was very friendly and helpful. Reception also very friendly, explained all important information and reminded straight at the check in about booking the shuttle to the airport. Not easy to understand where to place the roomkey in order to open the door. Very spacious room. Electric curtain a thing nobody needs and its a waste of money for the hotel. Was very nice to have already different pillows on the bed with an accordingly sign (hard, soft). Shuttle left on time in the morning and the driver asked about the airline in order to drop me at the right gate. All in all it was fine. As all hotels close to the airport over the world the rate was pretty high in comparison to the city hotels. But if you leave from the city you have to calculate the flatrate for the taxi.

I travelled through Athens in March and needed a night in Athens near the airport because I had a evening layover with an early morning flight. First the hotel had a free airport shuttle which also ran early enough for me to catch an 8am flight. Then my room was quite comfortable beds, pillows, bedding and the bathroom. Just relaxing. Finally the restaurant and wait staff were very inviting. I do not recommend the burger, perhaps a club sandwhich would have been better nevertheless the fries were hot and tasty. The drinks were also delicious. There is not much of a view and not much around the hotel for you to see or do but the hotel has everything you will need for a business trip or quick stop.
