I stayed 2 nights at the Hotel Indigo - Athens in September 2016. All the staff were friendly with an Aim-to-Please attitude. The room was very nice with tall ceilings. The location doesn't lend it self to great views (I had the lovely view of a parking lot). Shower was above average. Not thrilled with the Rosemary Mint shampoo/Conditioner. At... More

Had a fantastic visit. The breakfast was very good, especially the red potatoes. Clean room, friendly staff. The venue is a great place for a wedding. The only complaint was the wifi was very spotty and would just quit on you.

I really loved this place. You're getting an upscale boutique hotel experience for the price of a mid-range hotel. As an IHG Spire member I was upgraded to a suite which was spectacular. It was enormous and featured super-tall ceilings, hardwood floors, a separated living room, and gigantic bathroom with a double vanity. Everything was modern and felt new. The... More

As you drive up to the Indigo in Athens, you feel as though you have been transported to somewhere in Scandinavia, perhaps in some remote mountain town in Norway. Such is the impression that the rather austere yet interesting architecture gives you. I had my doubts as I drove on to the property but once entering it, any hesitation was... More

The hotel was wonderful! modern and clean but yet super comfortable. The Staff were all friendly and helpful and you are close to many good restaurants and hot spots. I would stay there again and I highly recommend it to others traveling to Athens!

Great hotel. Service was excellent. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and were impressed with how fresh the ingredients are and that everything seems to be locally sourced.

We came to Athens and as usual for us, we checked out the Trip Advisor Rankings. Another hotel had jumped ahead of Inidigo and was just next door. We (I) decided to give it a shot. We went to the 'other hotel' and it was awful. After lots of issues with our room, my wife and kids told me to... More

This was my favorite of the three hotels from this trip. The room is very well laid out and stylish. The bed is incredibly comfortable. The bathroom is very sleek and modern, with delightful Aveda products. I would definitely return.
