Athenaeum Intercontinental Athens
- What's Included
OverviewLocated near the famed Parthenon, Athenaeum Intercontinental Athens is a modern hotel with spacious rooms, rooftop restaurant, views of the Acropolis, set in the heart of the business district.
My wife and I stayed here for three days. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We selected an Acropolis view Club level room and could not have been more pleased with the room and the service. The room was large (even by American standards), clean, quiet and well appointed. Club level rooms have access to the Club Lounge where you can sit on the patio and enjoy beverages, a breakfast buffet, afternoon tea and an evening snack at no additional cost (it was really nice). What was most impressive though was the outstanding customer service offered by all the staff. I highly commend the Intercontinental on it's selection and training of its personnel. Friendly, interested and English speaking!
The location is not the best for Athens. Rooms are clean. Staff is polite, a little slow. Cuvette is not suitable for standing (narrow base). Breakfast is mediocre. Elevators sometimes gave errors, probably because of the room car reader did not work properly. Meeting rooms are comfortable, air condition works.
Great Hotel. Friendly helpful staffWe stayed in a Club Room and the Club lounge was great.There is a free shuttle bus to the main city square which runs frequently so although the Hotels location is not quite central it does not matter in the least.We stayed here for 2 nights before a Cruise and we liked it so much we booked a Day Room after the Cruise as our flight was not until @ 21:00.
Stayed here last year prior to our cruise and decided to come back this year when we went on another cruise. We paid a small amount extra for an upgraded room that faced the Acropolis. It was well worth it. The service and food in the Concierge level was perfect. The rest of the staff was very friendly. We would definitely stay here again.
I stayed with my family including my wife and 2 children aged 12 and 9. We were given the family room, which was very spacious, with 2 king sized beds, 2 TVs, a sofa, a dining area and a nice bathroom . The whole hotel is very big with all amenities.I used the gym, which was very good and one of the best so far. The breakfast was another highlight and was very good. Overall the hotel was very good and very close to the hop on hop off tour bus.The staff was excellent and the concierge was very helpful. The reason for my 4 stars instead of the 5 were the small niggles I had . The wifi was charged 6 euros a day, these days almost all the hotels even the tiny ones offer free wifi, not only that my iPhone had a problem connecting with the wifi when I left the hotel and came back. For this reason Everytime I had to go to the business center to get connected, which was an irritant and they had charged an additional 6 Euro once as they had connected at the biz centre. I got this rectified during checkout.The concierge was very helpful organizing for a doctor for my daughter and they even helped me getting the medicine from the pharmacy, this was a nice gesture but it was slightly negated as they charged an additional 10 euros to get the medicine, if they had done this as a service, would have been highly appreciated.Having stayed at various establishments all over the world, these kind of gestures would have been done as a service and not charged.Thought a good hotel and service was good, these small niggles have made me give a 4 star rather than a 5.Overall a very nice stay and thanks to all staff especially Dimitri and Yiannis( wasn't sure, the gentleman with glasses)at the concierge and Yosa at breakfast, who made my family excellent omelettes.Thank you all.Also in Athens,please visit the port area of Piraeus, which was really nice.
