We moved into the hotel the night before full lock down. We had a room upgrade which made staying in very comfortable. The staff was very helpful maneuvering our way through the lock down. Including equipping us with the permission letters you had to have if you went out to exercise. If you are trapped in a hotel and not allowed to go out, this is a good place to be. So despite the lock down we still enjoyed the stay.

Although the hotel is located by the main dual carriage way to downtown Athens, no traffic noise is heard from the hotel itself. Stunning views from the higher floors, well equipped guest rooms/bathrooms. large well appointed public rooms. Very airy feel. Nice swimming pool although not heated ! Exceptionally clean throughout. Due to Covid 19 and lockdown only an essential menu and restaurant/bistro was open. Very friendly staff at this establishment and they could not do more for guests under the difficult circumstances. Definitely very happy to visit this hotel again.

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.

My family and I stayed here twice on our entry and exit from Athens and couldn't have been happier. We were IHG ambassador platinum members and were treated as such, including room upgrades and airport transfer upgrades. The location, although not in the Plaka/Acropolis area, was just a short taxi ride away from all the attractions. We had a minor issue with the AC in our first stay, and were immediately transferred to a nicer suite. Overall, excellent stay, and would happily stay there again.

A three night stay to relax in Athens between island hopping to escape the madness in the UK and get some sun. The ICH Athens turned out to be a perfect choice. I felt there was genuine service culture in all areas: Reception, housekeeping, pool, lobby bar, breakfast. Together with a very well invested "hard product" there's little, if anything, to fault. The pool was a perfect enclave to get some sun and do a few laps. There's a short, well executed menu of staples like a Club Sandwich too. My room, an exec double was unexpectedly large and well thought out. Wifi was fast enough to stream Netflix on my laptop too. Overall great value for money. As a Covid - safe escape from dreary UK weather it couldn't have been better.
