    The hotel is old.”

    The hotel doesn’t have the value for money. The facilities are not up to the intercontinental standards. The breakfast is the same as 3 stars hotel. The swimming pool is very small. No indoor swimming pool.

    Not fitted as 5 star Hotel ”

    If you want a 5 star Hotel, many other options. Avoid this hotel instead. To be fair, room is big and clean enough. However, the staffs need to be trained to know how to serve. Hotel is service industry, having stern faces towards customers is not professional. Smile more is the profession in the industry. From checking in, to valet, to concierge, to checking out, all given stern faces. Which I wonder why. Checking out took me more than 15 mins. A hotel like this should have a quick key drop check out. When I finally done with my check out, at least 5 to 6 people on the Q. I never expect this where I need be rush to airport. Will not recommended at all.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice luxury space, Good breakfast, Friendly staff

    I enjoyed most of my stay at the hotel; however, the rooftop restaurant was closed the entire time I stayed there and I was looking forward to that experience. also, the bar tender didn't seem to add much rum to my mojito. Overall it was a good experience, but not as great as expected.

    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.

    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.
