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.

Nice hotel but very expencive 7.5€ for a Coke, a glas of wine was cheaper 7€. The food and desserts was not really worth the prices. Nice rooms. The view on the roof top was amazing, so beautiful to see Akropolis in the night light up. I was expecting more of a five star hotel, did not really feel the... More

Intercontinental is an obliging name and in a Athens it carries the extra burden of the Greek spirits and culture. The Athenaeum stands up to all luxury standards and it's staff complement with excellent service and personal attention.

The initial impression is a typical american hotel away from home, which is not bad if you need to have some type of connection with English international menu etc. The staff is 30% fabulously welcoming the other smile but seem to want to misdirect you in terms of information for tourist attractions, and definitely have a problem with general staff...
