Exceptional hotel with great design, not far from Acropolis & city center”

We have spent great time in Athens. The hotel is big, clean and beautiful with its modern design. It is close to Acropolis (20 min walk). The station of tram going to downtown is close to hotel. We liked the pool as well as the breakfast. The roof top is amazing, we haven't tried the "Michelin" restaurant, but you can admire one of the best sunset while using the bar. Being frequent guest at Intercontinental hotels around the world, I retrieved the professionalism, the quality of service and the beautiful design that qualify the company. I highly recommend this hotel and will definitely stay there next time.

Had a great stay!”

Staff took great care of us, food was excellent, super quiet

Our family was in Athens on vacation, and we had a great stay! The staff was excellent - super polite and willing to do anything to help us out. We paid extra to upgrade to the club lounge, and it was worth it - calm and relaxing, great food, good views. Location is a little out of the heart of Athens, but it was about a 20-30 min walk to Plaka / Acropolis, or quick 3-4 euro taxi ride. The check-in was a little slow and could be improved, but that's about all that I'd recommend changing.

Review for Atheneum Intercontinental”

Location very close to the Acropolis and easily accessible by local transport. A typical 5 star hotel, meant for business.
They can be more friendly.

When we booked, I upgraded to the Club Intercontinental, because of the view from the room, but on reaching there, I was told that the room with the view of the Acropolis was 20 Euro + VAT extra, over and above the price I was paying, which was not made clear to me when I booked. I was there for 2 nights and hence it did not matter much. The hotel has a decent location, not far from the city center. It is a comfortable hotel more meant for business.

Pretty Satisfied”

Cleaniless, Friendly Staff, Shuttle to Syntagma Square

Overall, a good stay. There is no convenient store nearby- not many restaurant choices outside of the hotel. In room dining is pretty expensive, something expected of a 5-star hotel. There is a shuttle bus that runs to Syntagma Square- a major shopping and cultural area (this was a major plus). Beware- the price to the airport is approximately 50Euros- however, any hotel in the are will probably be about the same price. Staff were friendly- we had to switch rooms because of noisy neighbors from the connecting room, but the staff were quick to help out.

The place is nice. It was clean and products were great. It's 10 min walk from Hadrian's Arch and the tram is near by. The bed was comfortable and the room is spacious. Unfortunately most of the eating establishments within the hotel is closed until March 2012. Vienna cafe has a piano player if your interested. Can't comment about the food nor hotel features as I didn't use them.

Good hotel with good facility”

This hotel was our first stop in Greece. While we're quite satisfied with the hotel, soon we found there are better hotels in much better location and with much better staff service. It's not like this hotel service is disappointing, but many other hotels in Greece go the extra length to ensure great personalized service to the guests. Location-wise, it's rather distant from the Acropolis and the city center. Fortunately the hotel provided free shuttle service to go to those areas of interest.
