We had a standard room on the 5th floor, high enough for a view over the city but due to a building opposite, not high enough to see the Acropolis. However the room was large,modern, spacious and very clean with a nice bathroom. We had an extra bed, but still had space for a sofa too. The Korres toiletries were... More

I was with a tour group and we used this hotel for one night, just to sleep. I am coming to the conclusion that the organizer of our tour got us the worst rooms in the hotels we stayed at. I am a Diamond member of the Hilton chain and the first two nights I was in Athens, I stayed... More

Love love this Athens hotel! Get the upgrade to the 9th floor if you can. Had a great view of the Parthenon. This is the executive/VIP floor where you get free breakfast, drinks etc. Eat at the rooftop restaurant. Best chef. Had the best dinner there. Love the bedding as well. Staff awesome.

Got a really great deal for a room on the Club floor. Didn't realise it when I booked, but that meant we could check-in at the Club lounge and avail of of the facilities there. It was definitely worth that bit extra that I paid! The hotel is in a slightly unusual area and there really is nothing of note... More

The Intercontinental was a nice, clean, comfortable, quiet hotel. It's a little out of the way from everything. It's about a 20 minute walk to restaurants and attractions. The pool is a little small for the size of the hotel. If you do not want to be in the crowds of Athens, this hotel is a good choice.
