I've been there for business resons. Very large hotel, with many business and leasure facilities. Shops arcade, restaurants, sauna, business centre, fitness etc...Rooms are large and very well maintained, even the classic ones. Overall cleaningless is good. Breakfast is on average for a international hotel. Breakthrough view on Parthenon is definitely an added value. I've been in even higher level...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017

We stayed here for 4 nights. Based on the location, you may think that its inconvenient, so did i until we stayed there. The hotel runs a shuttle service frequent enough for you to be spend the whole day in the city centre. It stops at Acropolis and the main square. So, put your worries aside. You can even take...

I expect Intercontinental hotels to adhere to high standards. The Intercontinental Athenaeum lacked a few details. The room was nice, but some items for a top hotel were missing. For example, when trying to send laundry out, the paper was missing, so the shirts were taken to the front desk with assurance it would be fine. Two limp, unstarched shirts...

I am a frequent customer of IHG chain, and I expected the outstanding service I experienced throughout Asia ... But... One complimentary bottle of water, no bath amenities (you normally find tooth brush even in 3 star hotels!) the fridge locked, the room at floor 2 with anice view on the parking across the road ... etc. The reception carefully...

The room was very comfortable and spacious with a comfortable bed. The room service was well organised and thus the service was brilliant. I had breakfast facing the Acropolis in a private breakfast area as I am a member of the IHG group of hotels, and thus was upgraded to Club InterContinental. That also included free internet. Otherwise one would...

Check in staff was very friendly and check-in was easy. We had a room with the Acropolis view and the club lounge availability.The king bed was very comfortable, and room was tidy. The lounge also has a good evening drinks and food offering. Check out was easy as well.

A luxurious hotel, close to the shops, galleries & restaurants of Kolonaki, this hotel gushes service, comfort & relaxation. I opted for a semi-suite with access to the Club Intercontinental Lounge - snacks & drinks all day long, a suitable place to hold business meetings, staff on-hand to offer whatever is required. If you can, recommended! The room itself -...

My wife and I stayed here for three days. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We selected an Acropolis view Club level room and could not have been more pleased with the room and the service. The room was large (even by American standards), clean, quiet and well appointed. Club level rooms have access to the...

Reviewed 1 week ago NEWvia mobile

The location is not the best for Athens. Rooms are clean. Staff is polite, a little slow. Cuvette is not suitable for standing (narrow base). Breakfast is mediocre. Elevators sometimes gave errors, probably because of the room car reader did not work properly. Meeting rooms are comfortable, air condition works.

Great Hotel. Friendly helpful staff We stayed in a Club Room and the Club lounge was great.
