Was there during business trip. For a 5 Star hotel it is not very good inside. Room was prepaid, so I cant say something about value for money. Rooms looks like they are from 70s or 80s (the bat one), and I think actually they are! Mostly everything was very clean, bed was soft (in a good way), there 2... More

Booked a last minute reservation here after my original hotel cancelled on me with little notice and was glad I selected the Intercontinental. Staff was professional, allowed us to check-in early, provided us with a rollaway bed at no extra charge, room was clean, elevators were fast, had an outdoor pool, and location was not too far from the Acropolis...

The Club staff is amazing. They go above and beyond. The food and drinks selection is more than sufficient. Make sure you have your breakfast on the terrace and enjoy the view of Acropolis to start in great day.

Spend one night at Family Room with baby crib. The room size is just as big as we need. Breakfast buffet area is bright and neat with variety of food choices.

Stayed here before many times on club level - this time for the first time in a deluxe room as I usually skip breakfast . Room on 7th floor with Akropolis view - new and elegantley decorated. Spotless clean. Staff as always outstanding. Although centrally located, hotel in quiet area- good sleep nights guaranteed.

There are a number of positives about the hotel - good InterContinental standard, good facilities and dining. We stayed on the Club suites floor and had a lovely view of the Acropolis over breakfast and evening canapés. The bar area was closed while we were there but enjoyed a pre-dinner drink in the lounge area. Strange choice of ambient music... More
