A good business hotel. On arrival staff a little frosty. Despite my Spire Elite status, not a very welcoming lady on reception. Rooms nice and club lounge is a great place to relax and is open most of the day for food and drinks. Pool very small compared to the pictures. Bar staff great and meals good.

The hotel is well maintained and good value for money. You can expect all the amenities for a hotel of this rating. The pool area is quite small and the location is not as close to the centre as advertised but it is close to a metro station. For what you pay, the hotel is good value for money.

The Crowne Plaza hotel is comfortable and in good walking distance to the metro station. Rooms are comfortable. Breakfasts are excellent and there is a lovely roof top terrace with a pool. Staff are welcoming. If you enjoy running, there are running routes provided by the hotel - a good way to explore the city in the early morning.

We had a club room, included access to a lounge which was very nice. Walking distance to a subway stop. Beds were comfortable and air conditioning worked well (thank goodness!)

We are platinum elite and were upgraded to a junior suite on the club floor which proved to be very quiet. The room was great and the two category upgrade was appreciated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The hotel was very accessible to the city, being very close to the megaro moussikis metro stop. Our stay wasn’t perfect—there... More

Nice hotel overlooking the highest point in Athens. Nice amenities all around. Great wifi which is not typical in Greece. Close to public transportation and all the sites. We chose to go to the beach but the pool would have been a good option. Well run. We called in from the beach and they knew exactly who we were!

Sadly I have always been able to trust the reliability of the IHG hotels and standards over the last thirty years or so, however on this occasion it fell well short of the normal standards.

I loved my stay here - we stayed once and the beginning of a 5 week trip and once at the end and I can say without a doubt Crown Plaza Athens had the best beds/pillows! all the staff were friendly and accommodating, loved the breakfast + view. Super close to public transport. Would definitely recommend.

Bellman quickly took our luggage and had planned to come get us in the club when our room was ready. SERVICE!!! Secured elevators require the room key to activate.

Excellent for Business travel but not for the heart of Athens Action. The front desk staff & wait staff were formal and yet not informative or helpful, like an inconvenience. The amenities are poor.
