"Excellent service on a very, very short stay"
For this stay, I arrived after sunset, and departed before sunrise the next day. Don't get me wrong - it wasn't because something wasn't right with the hotel but rather due to the idiosyncrasies of my itinerary. Although I could have travelled from the airport in a taxi, I chose to take the subway to Syntagma Square before hopping on the airport shuttle bus. Check-in was fuss-free, and I was also greeted by the supervisor on duty - I'm not sure if this special treatment is reserved for the hotel's loyalty programme members but it was a nice touch. I had heard that the hotel was showing its age but I felt it looked in relatively good nick. As was my regular practice, I had requested for a room away from the elevators, and the hotel was able to accommodate this request. The room was spacious and very comfortable, and I slept well (despite having to leave early). A box of desserts had been left for me in the room - another nice touch. Because of the hour, I opted to order a light dinner using room service. The receptionist was happy to guide me through the menu, and my dinner which arrived shortly was a nice tasting mix of local flavours. Check-out the next morning was rapid, and the staff were eager to help me get into a taxi to the airport. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to take breakfast properly but the hotel did have some hot beverages for guests who had to leave early. Overall, a very pleasant stay (will have to stay longer next time), and special thanks to all staff who played a role in making it so.
"GOOD HOTEL BUT OFF CENTRE"
Vanaf Athens airport it take 40/45 minutes blue metro line get to Syntagma Square where you have to switch to the Red Line for 2 or 3e stations, direction Ellinko it takes 5/7 min and it is from both stations a walk of 5/8 minutes to the hotel or you can take a taxi for EUR 3/5,= alternative you can take a taxi from the Airport to the hotel for approx EUR 35/38,= warning: if you run without a meter be sure that you fix the price! The checkin was fast on the main lobby en we where upgraded to a de Luxe room on the 7 floor (718). The next morning we did go for the center city with the free hotel bus wich runs abouth every 30 min, pickup and dropoff is in the front of the National Gardens entrance, you also can run a taxi wich take you for a EUR 5,= downtown. The room was large with plenty of room and was including a working place and a sofa, we where wake up in the night because off traffic sound, but this was because the second window was not closed, overal a nice two day stay, the service is more than ok but a small warning the hotel is off center, but transport is no problem and verry sheep in Athens.
"OK but rather seedy locality"
Hotel is good but expensive for food and drink. Rooms clean and a good size and public areas are very nice. The food was good and the staff friendly and helpful and my stay in the hotel was pleasant. My first room was rather smelly being a smoking room but they soon changed me to a non-smoking room on request which was fine. The only downside is the area in which the hotel sits which is a bit run down and the only bars we could see as an alternative to the hotel were bit seedy which is the best polite description I can give them.
I think that this InterContinental offers great value for money. I believe that the hotel was renovated back in 2004 for the Olympics. Staff is friendly and the executive floor is worth the price, the service and the view to the Acropolis. We had booked a very spacious suite with Acropolis view. Recommended.
"A great location to relax and access the sights"
Upon arrival in evening amazed by direct and unobstructed views we had of Acropolis. Were upgraded for platinum IHG status and took part in executive floor lounge for breakfast, snacks (almost a dinner at times) and drinks. Room was renovated but had InterContinantal elements too it. Bed was comfy and room was overall spacious. Bathroom tub was traditional European thus narrow and shower curtain was Hotel shuttle service to city center was very convenient but walking to/from was simple as well. Although not in immmediate city center it served our needs without issue. Never felt unsafe in area in the evenings. Staff at all levels were pleasant and helpful. Overall a very good experience for us.
