Used for our final few days in Athens after a few weeks island hopping. Was concerned having seen some mixed reviews and having booked via a third party site (Booking.com) but very impressed tbh. Some negatives, but on basis of it probably being best room we've ever been given (especially relative to price) I'm going with 5 stars! It's a... More

The room was up to intercontinental standards with a comfy bed. IHG Platinum Ambassador was not honored well. I was told at check-in that I was upgraded to a ''acropolis view'' room. Well I could see the acropolis in the very distance in the corner of the right eye if I pressed my nose to the windows. Well if I... More

The intercontinental is the ideal hotel in Athens. It was large modern and provided a shuttle to the heart of Athens just 5 minutes away. Club room was very good, but closed too early compared to Marriott and other IHG hotels. Club room staff was top notch and provided lots of assistance. The club room had a great view and... More

This is mostly a business hotel due to the location and large convention meeting rooms and halls . This is a huge hotel and has all the IHG amenities . Rooms are very well spaced . The hotel is a 10 -15 minute walk from Athens finest archeological sites and the action filled tourist shopping and dining streets .

The hotel has a very nice service compared to other 5 star hotels in the Greek capital. Certain things in the hotel require upgrade/refurbishment but generally it's a nice place to stay. The location is also good as the hotel is situated on Sygrou avenue which is one of the major roads in the city.

Beautiful modern hotel just a short walk from the Metro. Nice pool with plenty of towels available. Proper extra bed suitable for a teenager. Staff are all very helpful and professional. The only downside is the ridiculously high cost of drinks and snacks but you can pick these up at local prices and pop them in the room fridge.

This InterContinental is in a great location within walking distance of the Acropolis and other sites. They also have a free shuttle that runs to the Plaka area with great restaurants and shops. The restaurant/bar on top of the hotel offers fantastic views of the Acropolis. The rooms on the lower floors are small and need updating. Most of the... More

An excellent hotel choice for staying in Athens. Very close to the city centre and places to go like Acropolis and the museum , Thiseio area, Syntagma square but also close to the seaside areas in southern Attiki. The rooms are very nice and clean.
