      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

      Wonderful Hotel - an oasis of calm compared to the heat and chaos of the city

      from

      I stayed for four days at the IC Athens.

      The hotel is a superb five star hotel, close to the city centre, with a great great free shuttle bus every thirty minutes to the city centre.

      Check-in was a breeze, considering the size of the hotel. For once, they had all my details already printed on the form which meant that check-in took all of thirty seconds - and was unrushed. Because they are organised there are no queues.

      The hotel foyer is palatial, with marble everywhere. A bar and coffee area surrounds the side of the hotel, with reasonably priced drinks, and freshly made smoothies - a perfect change to the searing Athens summer heat.

      Rooms are enormous. I had a standard room, and it was really large, especiallty for European standards. My room overlooked the Acropolis, which at night was lit up - what a superb view.

      The room had a huge SuperKing bed, working desk, sofa and coffee table. There was a welcome gift of a bottle of Greek Olive oil from the hotel also - a nice touch.

      On the tenth floor (accessed from floor nine) there is a roof top bar, which buzzes at night time. Again, excellent city views, and a great way to end an evening. Pity it closes at 2am though.

      Breakfast is a superb buffet that offers every choice.

      Tip 1: Demand a non smoking room if you don't smoke- Greeks smoke non stop.

      Tip 2: Locals eat late. Concierge will give you great suggestions for local tavernas. I didn't have dinner in the hotel, but colleagues who did had great things to say about the quality of dinners.

      Tip 3: Taxi Rank is right outside the hotel - Taxis from the airport will cost about €30 - Confirm the approximate rate before you set off.

      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.

      This is your typical, very large, international hotel. The rooms are oversized, and very comfortable. The concierge service was excellent as well.

      If you like the smaller intimate boutique hotel, this is note the hotel of choice for you.

      However, after spending Euro 200-250/night in the Greek Islands, this hotel seemed like a steal. We prepaid the hotel on-line, and received a rate of Euro 100/night, inclusive of a fabulous breakfast. The only negative is the location, which requires you to either utilize the hotel shuttle, or a taxi, to get in/out of the main centre. About a 5-7 minute drive.

      Location was not an issue for us, so we liked this hotel very much.

      Plus, at Euro 100/night, it was a great value, and worth having to take the shuttle bus a few times.

      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).

      After a decent night sleep we woke up to the view of the Acropolis and had an ok breakfast at the Club.
      We then went to see an ancient 11th century church, the history museum, the Jewish museum, the war museum and the Benaki museum. That's a lot of museums. :-)
      In the evening, we went out for a nice dinner.
      All in all, a fine day.
      Tomorrow we're off to the Acropolis.
