Big,beautiful and gorgeous! Not gorgeous in a svelte way but in a massive, make a statement when you walk in way. A giant entrance and lobby area that closes in on you like a comfortable slipper once you talk to the staff. Warm and welcoming are the staff, like you just returned for the 20th time this year! From the...

We had a very relaxing stay at the Intercontinental Athenaeum. The concierge on the Club Floor, Pammi, was wonderful and upgraded us as Ambassadors to a better suite on the top floor. The Club Lounge had a wonderful breakfast, tea and cocktail spread that was meticulously maintained and replenished. The balcony had a fantastic view of the Acropolis. It was...

Had a bad experience when I arrived at night with a baby, my husband and 4 bags and two guys at lobby kept staring rather than helping. I was disappointed as it was late night and came only for a day stay but the behaviour I saw was shocking.

We normally stay in Intercontinental Hotels as we normally enjoy the experience and this was no exception. For the first time ever we did not use the Hotel Club facilities, I normally spend far too much time enjoying the food and drinks and not enough time in the real local bars and restaurants. The hotel does have a mini-bus to...

I recently visited a friend that was residing at the hotel, and I ordered an espresso from the room service. The total bill for the ESPRESSO was 11,50 euros. !!!!!!!! If you go down to the Vienna Coffee, they will charge you 7,50 euros. Which means they charge you an extra 4,00 euro just for the tray charge. Ridiculous prices....
