Undoubtedly, one of the best hotels in South East Europe. Obviously, it’s an IHG hotel. All staff members positive, motivated, and always helpful regardless of your request. Spacious rooms, and although located on a busy street, sound proof. Very clean and hygienic. Very professional management, thanks to IHGs leadership.

We enjoyed another outstanding stay at an Intercontinental property courtesy of the Athens Athenaeum. The staff were doing an outstanding job in very difficult circumstances with fewer guests due to the ongoing Covid situation. Every aspect was excellent, from dealing with the reservations manager via email to organise our stay, to food & beverage, room cleaning and reception & concierge during our stay. Everyone was so helpful. Every need was met. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

We stayed for the weekend at the hotel. The check-in process was seamless and the staff were very welcoming and professional. Our room was spacious and clean. The bed is very comfortable - definitely one of the more comfortable hotel beds I have stayed in recently. The cupboards and TV are a bit outdated (some of the channels were not very clear). Breakfast selection was good, although I thought more would be on offer given the size of the hotel. Twice during our stay the cleaning staff came into our room without knocking, once after 21:00. This was a bit unpleasant. Overall it was a pleasant stay and I would come back.

We were in Athens previously in 2018 and stayed at the Grande Bretagne , told by our travel agent it was the best hotel in Athens. Boy was she WRONG! The Intercontinental is a far nicer place to stay. While the location is more central at the GB, the suites are FAR nicer and larger at the Intercontinental and half the price with the same Acropolis view. And the hospitality offered by this hotel is second to none!!! We immediately booked a second stay. Free drinks all evening at the rooftop bar and free buffet breakfast in the restaurant more than make up for the club lounge being closed. This is the ONLY place I will stay in Athens.
