The hotel is nice located not far away from the center of Athens, but also not too close to it. The distance to the beach is acceptable and museums or sightseeings are within 10 minutes drive.Staff is very friendly, especially in the Spa. The hotel looks like it needs renovation in certain areas such as Club Lounge. Nevertheless, from the Club Lounge there is a very nice view to Acropolis and St. George.

In Athens on business & decided to try this place, instead of my usual hotel. First impressions are obtained from the surrounding neighbourhood, which is not very nice. I wouldn't walk around here on my own at night. Hotel lobby is big & the welcome is warm, professional and friendly. As with everywhere in Greece, English is spoken as standard. The room I had was also spacious, so felt comfortable from that perspective but it is partly carpeted, which I really don't like (the rest is marble which is lovely - why not throughout entire room?). Bathroom doesn't have separate shower but can make do with shower over bath. Korres products in bathroom are a little luxury & absolutely the best I've ever used. Love these products so much, I stock up at Athens airport every time I fly out! Free wi-fi is available & works well. But overall it's a big hotel, which lacks a bit of individuality or quirky characteristics, and the area lets it down somewhat.

Athens can seem a bit chaotic, but this hotel has all the amenities you'd want to counter that, feeling like a protected enclave. It has the feeling of a business hotel, so I just found it a good pit stop before proceeding on to one of the Greek islands—so much so that I stayed their again on my way back home. It's not that I was floored by the rooms or hotel restaurants, but it does provide convenient accommodations that don't have any unpleasant surprises, and it's well-located.

Have just returned from a luxurious weekend in this hotel. We had paid for a room giving access to the club lounge and we were directed to this lounge for check-in. We had a room on the 9th floor with a view across to the Acropolis. The double bed was huge as it was 2 single beds put together presumably with a mattress topper as there was no gap between them and was very comfortable. We tried to watch a film in our room on the Friday evening but unfortunately it wasn't working. Breakfast in the club lounge had a very good selection of hot and cold dishes. Tea, coffee, and soft drinks were available all day, with cakes and cookies in the afternoon. From 6.00 - 9.00p.m. there was wine, a couple of hot appetisers, various tiny bites and biscuits and cheese.- not as extensive as in some other Intercontinental club lounges but quite adequate. Our eyes were always drawn across to the floodlit Acropolis. All the staff in the club lounge were extremely helpful, friendly and professional.
Cafe Vienna in the lobby has a lovely atmosphere with a pianist playing in the evening. I enjoyed a massage in the spa and you could use the sauna and steam room before any treatments but it would have been nice to just have some comfortable chairs to relax on after a full day sightseeing.
The hotel is away from the main tourist area in quite a run-down area but we made good use of the free shuttle, being dropped off the first morning nearer to the Acropolis and being picked up each day from Syntagma Square. It is worth getting to the Acropolis early in the morning as even in the winter it was getting very crowded as we were making our way down. The 12 euro ticket gives access to all the main historical sites so is excellent value. The Plaka area is good for cafes and souvenir shops.
Overall, a good base for a luxury weekend.

Room tip: Worth paying extra for access to the club lounge.

Good location, poor service, and not good value. But the rooms are in need of a facelift.. Walls of room are dull and dreary and carpet is worn. We know Athens is going through tough times but the image does befit the brand.. Enjoy the food available outside rather than stay in. ..................................................................
