Great room, big and comfortable, and great location, but the best of course is the spa. When you order an omelette for breakfast make sure you tell them how many eggs to put you, because if not they will make you we five eggs (!!!!) which is crazy. also they don't have soy milk or almond milk which is disappointing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my two week stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. While the hotel is a bit of hike to the Acropolis and Plaka, but its a short $5 cab ride! I am an Ambassador Member and the morning breakfasts and happy hour snacks/drinks were excellent. The staff were outstanding and incredibly friendly/welcoming!

Great service, nice spacious rooms, city centre location for walkable distances to Acropolis and other attractions. Highly recommendable! A bit pricy for drinks & food, but that's to be expected I guess.

The breakfast is delicious! Great view of Athens from the top floor. It's not very close to downtown, but the free shuttle bus is really convenient. The room is spacious, had all accessories that you might need to use. Classy and elegant hotel, with welcome, helpful and friendly crew.

Stayed here for a long weekend on my own but hard to get bored in this hotel. The decor all over the hotel is classy and beautiful.

Our first impression when we walked into the hotel lobby was "feels like we're at a convention." The hotel feels like most guests are in town for business. The room we stayed in was nice and spacious. However, the bed was not very comfortable and felt too springy. We expected the mattress to at least have a memory foam topper.... More
