Friday
I woke up early this morning because of the torrential downpour that I could hear against the wall next to me. I went back to bed, but then woke up to my alarm around 9. It was still raining, but I thought that I could handle it if it lightened up just a bit, so that I could run my errands. Then the cleaning woman came and ...

... to go.

G.O. Tours picked us up from the hotel to go on our evening excursion, called “Athens at Night”. They were about 40 minutes late in picking us up. The traffic was CRAZY because the metro workers went on strike today. We climbed onto the minibus with about 12 other people on it and were on our way. We picked up our tour guide, Illios, who sounded like a giant nose (super nasal voice) mumbling with his mouth on the microphone. He taught ...

    Intercontinental is a globally known brand. The staff was great - very prompt, courteous and helpful. The concierge was great. He recommended places to visit that we really liked. It's a very clean and well maintained hotel. Cabs are very easily available. The metro is also very close by.
    Unfortunately, there is no free wi-fi. Also, the hotel is a little far from all the tourist spots so we had to take a cab or metro to go places.

    The hotel is very nice and modern and clean, but location is lacking and prices for food and drink are outrageous. If you stay here, go across the street to the kiosk for soft drinks and snacks for a fraction of the price.

    Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Athenaeum Athens

    Very Nice Place

    from

    My wife and I stayed in Athens, in July 2005, as part of our honeymoon, as a stop-over going into and out of the Greek Islands.

    The most immaculate hotel ever

    from

    from the friendliness of the staff to the cleanliness of the room, this hotel is untouched. For those of us who like to travel without breaking the bank, this is certainly luxury!! Even the tracks of the windows were spotless. All the bedspreads, linens, couches and carpet were unbelieveably clean - down comforters, down pillows, and your choice of non-down products as well. The bathrooms were very, very large compared to european standards. All marble with ensuite showers, all your amenities, robe, slippers, etc. Absolutely superb. Food is a little pricey, but the continental breakfast is excellent (have to pay separately) The hotel is located 1 block (really) from the tram which is the kassamouli station and it takes you to syntagma square, where you can immediately pick the subway for all the lines. Oh, and by the way, you can catch the subway from the airport all the way to the city center,(syntagma square) takes about 45 minutes for 10 euros for two people. Grayline tours has tour set ups with CHAT tours and GO tours for delphi, mycenae and the athens sight seeing tours . We highly recommend them. Be careful with taxis - some are honest and others are not. So, have fun and stay at this hotel - check out their website. Will stay there and recommend to others .

    Wonderful hotel in a wonderful city

    from

    I stayed for a week in the fall of 2002. The location is a decent walk or very short taxi ride from most of the ruins, muesuems, monuments etc. I was in a very large suite with 2 baths, large bedroom and a very large combined living room/dining room.

    Room service and meals at the hotel restraunt were very good and resonably priced. The room itself was very reasonable considering the size and amenities. I would love to go again. The view of the Acropolis from higher level rooms is inspiring!

    Very Nice Stay

    from

    Stayed at the Athenium Intercontinental for four nights and was very pleased. Great spacious rooms, super comfortable beds, excellent amenities and very helpful staff. Ask for a room in the back otherwise you hear all of the traffic noise from the main street. The restaurant has a wonderful buffet breakfast and prices are great.

    Felt like a princess

    from

    We stayed in the Intercontinental Hotel for two weeks, and had the best time ever. The hotel is fabulous!! The service in Cafe Zoe, Cafe Vienna and at the swimming pool is excellent. The staff is extremely friendly and polite and they pamper you all day! The room was very spacious and was cleaned twice a day. The shuttle service to the center is ideal and the drivers are very friendly as well. I'll never stay at another hotel when I return to Athens, because the Athenaeum InterContinental is absolutely the best!

    Atheneum Intercontinetal Hotel

    from

    We loved using the Intercontinental Hotel as our home base during an all-too-brief tour of Greece. The room initially assigned to us did have a problem with the bathtub but the hotel gave us another, much nicer room quickly and made sure our bags were delivered promptly. The food we enjoyed there was very nice and you couldn't beat the view of the Acropolis! We are definately going back and will stay here again.

    5* living. You couldnt beat it with a stick!!

    from

    A quite outstanding hotel in the middle of the business district. We spent 3 nights in total grandeur with food, hospitality and professionalism to rival any hotel worldwide. Downside is there is not much to do in the local area BUT taxis to the main areas of interest are very cheap. The Acropolis is a must see feature of this city and the cafes and restaurants around it are the best going. Athens in general is a place to see once in your life but i doubt it has that je nais sai quois to entice you back.

    One of our best hotel stays in Europe so far but....

    from

    We chose this hotel as it was recommended by our travel agent and our cruise line uses it for extended stays for passengers. The hotel service was impeccable except for 2 problems: late November the weather is usually much colder than when we were there. The city experienced an unusual warm spell. The A/C for the entire complex seemed to be turned off because everywhere we went in the hotel (including our room), it was quite warm and humid (altho our room steward told us the A/C was on). We had a Club Floor room with excellent view of the Acropolis and Lycabettus, and opening the large window provided cool relief, however noisy. After we got checked into our room, we also had horrible service for mid-afternoon lunch at their Cafe Vienna...the wait staff was EXTREMELY slow (we had to find our own menus from another table), "the kitchen" got our orders wrong, we couldn't find our server to sign off on our bill, etc., so what should've been a quick 20-30 min. lunch took well over an hour. A redeeming value was very nice continental breakfasts in the Club Room included with our stay along with complimentary wine and appetizers in late afternoon (if one wasn't out sightseeing). We also had a very romantic dinner at their rooftop restaurant with a table by the window and great view until a group of 30 or so VERY noisy business persons arrived for cocktails and business dinner. Our last night we ordered room service which was tops. The concierge performed almost impeccably, and taking the free hotel shuttle to the city centre saved us lots of taxi fare. (If you want to walk directly from your hotel to any sights, don't stay here...it's not close to any.) When we return to Athens, we will definitely stay here again on their Club Floor...it's worth the extra bucks to have the amenities and fantastic views.

    One of the best in Greece

    from

    Was in Intercontinental 4 nights in DECEMBER 2003. This hotel is a real 5-star hotel.Some people don't like big open spaces, but i think a real 5 star hotel must have space.The breakfast in the hotels cafe zoe restaurant is excellent, and the service there is very good.The cafe vienna has the best pastrys in Athens.As for the standard rooms they are large (for Greece ), and have separate sitting area.The minus for this hotel is the small swimming pool without any view, and the prices (over 250 euros for standard room with breakfast).
