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

I recommend it

Posted Nov 29, 2014
Pros: Evertything
Cons: perfect
Location: Nothing really charming near by but they have a shuttle every hour or so to the city center (main attractions)
Excellent option in Athens. I found a promo in Expedia and It is worth it.

Great hotel to see Athens from

Posted Nov 4, 2014
Pros: Lovely and clean, well organised, good food. Very comfortable beds. Very good breakfast.
Cons: Daughter in law had a slight issue with one of the front desk staff (concierge) who was abrupt and bordered on rude.
Location: Good location - out of the centre enough to be quiet but just a short ride (free shuttle) from the attractions like the Acropolis etc
Stayed here with our daughter in law for three days on our way to Santorini.

Nice hotel but a bit far from the center

Posted Oct 27, 2014 on Hotels.com
Nice, spacious room. Modern decor. Very clean. Breakfast buffet was rich and lavish. The staff very polite and efficient but not warm. Several of the concierge staff was reluctant to elaborate with info and were only answering questions without additional help. The hotel is located about 10 minutes taxi ride to the center in a commercial neighborhood. and it is not within waling distance to the Acropolis. They provide a complimentary shuttle to Syntagama Square but if you end up at the end of the day in another part of the city it will cost between 3 to 5 Euros to get back there. On the other hand, being somewhat removed from the center makes the stay quite and peaceful

Dear Ofri, Thank you for choosing to stay at the Athenaeum InterContinental Athens and for taking the time to write a review. We are pleased to learn that you enjoyed the comfort of our spacious rooms and our ‘lavish’ breakfast buffet. We are, however, sorry to learn that our staff service was not warm and that you didn’t receive the additional information you required from our Concierge. Please accept our sincere apologies for the disappointment we caused you and rest assured that your comments will be discussed with our team in order to ensure that a similar lapse in service does not reoccur. We thank you again for your valuable feedback and look forward to welcoming you back to our hotel on your next visit to Athens. Yours sincerely, Martha Pallis Guest Relations Manager

Nice hotel close to attractions.

Posted Oct 22, 2014
Not all taxi's stopped directly at the hotel - interesting to find out that the hotel kept a close eye on the services provided.
