Location

Posted Apr 26, 2015
Not in a good location but they provide shuttle service. The first night stay we had no air conditioning in the room and we were very uncomfortable, they did not offer any compensation so I asked for 2 free spa treatments and they would only provide one.

Very classy hotel a mile out of the city centre

Posted Apr 20, 2015
Pros: Great staff, well equipped, well informed concierge.
Cons: SERIOUSLY expensive extras, particularly food.
Location: Very good shuttle service to centre, so very handy for the city, metro and trams. Also good proximity to all major sights.
The hotel was very nice and worked well for us as a family for our week-long stay in beautiful Athens. We ate out constantly, the food in Athens is very good and the hotel was ridiculously expensive for meals. We would recommend taking the hotel free shuttle to the main Syntagma Square - directly over the road from the drop off point next to the tram stop is Focaccino, which serves a beautiful breakfast, including fresh croissants, lovely coffee, fusion food freshly cooked to order. Definitely take a trip (metro and bus - 1 hr) to the beaches in Vouliagmeni and the most spectacular food at Labros Restaurant, directly opposite Lake Vouliagmeni's entrance. Don't miss the markets in the old quarter.

Hotel with shuttle to Syntagma Square

Posted Apr 15, 2015
Pros: The room was cleaned regularly, with towels and toiletry renewed often (sometimes twice daily)
Cons: Breakfast is good. If there can be some variation of dishes everyday that would make it nicer.
Location: Take the shuttle to Syntagma sqare. From there the main attractions are at walking distance.
Good hotel with nice breakfast buffet and a shuttle to Syntagma Square

Confortevole albergo, turisticamente logistico!

Posted Apr 8, 2015
Pros: Ampi spazi e sobrietà degli ambienti.
Cons: I costi di servizio (es. colazione)
Location: Hotel vicinissimo al centro storico e molto facile da raggiungere. Nessun problema per parcheggio. Da non farsi mancare il tempio di Poseidone a 70km
Hotel dall'aspetto "businessman" si è rivelato molto comodo per famiglie dedite alle visite ai vari siti turistici/storici, permette pause in albergo tra un museo e...luoghi antichi! (Gran scelta aver noleggiato un auto). A due passi da un locale ideale (italiano, ma gestito totalmente da greci) per bere il vero caffè italiano e fare ricche colazioni.

Pleasant break

Posted Apr 7, 2015
This hotel is a little dated compared to other members of the chain. However it features a wonderful breakfast buffet with Greek flavours!

atmosphärelos und überteuert

Posted Jan 20, 2015
Location: 500 m zur Metro. 1500 m zur Akropolis
Das Hotel liegt an einer großen Einfallstrasse. Der Fussweg zur nächsten Metrostation ist unangenehm, weil die belebte Strasse an einer völlig ungesicherten Stelle zu überqueren ist. Nur für Leute, die alles mit Taxi machen, ist das Hotel bequem. Das Haus ist luxuriös, aber völlig atmosphärelos (z.B. die Lobby), die Zimmer sind schön, die Betten bequem, aber alles, was über das Zimmer hinausgeht, ist völlig überteuert. Horrende Preise für Minibar, Kaffee in der Lobby, selbst WLan und Saunabenutzung sind zusätzlich kostenpflichtig. Das Hotel ist für Firmenkunden ok, für Privataufenthalter nur bedingt zu empfehlen.

Dear Jörg, Thank you for staying at the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens and for taking the time to write a review. We have noted your comments about our location and would like to take this opportunity to inform you that when walking to the Syngrou Fix metro station, one may use the underpass that is approximately one block away from the hotel toward the direction of the Panteion University. Alternatively, one may take Strogonoff street, that is directly opposite our main entrance, which changes into Kallirois Avenue, and at the traffic lights, cross over to the Syngrou Fix metro station. May we also advise you that our hotel provides a complimentary shuttle bus service to Syntagma square on a daily basis for our guests’ convenience. Regarding our prices, we would like to inform you that they reflect the high standard of service and product offered at our hotel and in many cases, are much lower than our competitors in Athens. We thank you again for your valuable feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens. Yours sincerely, Martha Pallis Guest Relations Manager
