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.
The hotel is really nice, room was lovely and very spacious. The area the hotel is locate isn't the nicest but it isn't far to walk to the tourist areas. Everything we needed was there but food in the lounge was overpriced and not very interesting.
We spend 5 nights in this hotel, and we were pleased especially with the Club lounge services, our room, pool and hotel gym. Also the rooftop bar is nice in the evenings offering great views to the city. Our room was spacious with nice views to the Acropolis, and it was always kept very clean by the staff. Beds are comfortable. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. We used the complimentary shuttle bus to Syntagma few times, but also taxis were (everywhere) easily available. The shuttle / taxi drive to Syntagma takes ~5 mins, and taxi costs <5 euros. Overall a very good stay!
The service is excellent and there is a beautiful pool. This is a good hotel for families with children. The rooms are large and the staff is very attentive and courteous The neighborhood is a bit weird but it is not far from all the main attractions and is and easy to access.
We stayed for 4 nights on mid July. The room we booked was really spacious with a very nice balcony overviewing Akropolis. Clean and a good service from the Club upstairs. The only issue for this hotel is that is not in center but you can still get the bus shuttle to Sintagma every half hour.Will be back soon.
Ok, so this was part of our family trip, right after our wedding in Cyprus and then a beautiful stay in Crete. We were to spend 3 nights in Athens prior to flying back home. My parents and sister were accompanying us. Therefore, I have booked 2 rooms about 5 months in advance. Informed the hotel that this was a special occasion. From my profile they knew that I was top tier Spire Elite Royal Ambassador within their chain of hotels. Here are my comments:- Although they claim that there is special check-in for elite members on the club floor, we had to wait exhausted at the reception in the line-up before they could speak with us. Not the right level of treatment.- They told me that my personal room got upgraded to the club floor, which is a given benefit of this tier anyway. However, my parents' room got a 2 level upgrade, but no club floor and no club lounge. I have called the guest relations and the duty manager and have asked nicely whether they can at least give club lounge access for my parents, seeing that this was a special trip. Lots of talking from them, but bottom line was a "No" and even the GM the best he has done was to offer a 20% discount for the club lounge. This was a first for me in many years with IHG. Thumbs down to you guys.- Yes, the view from the balcony at the Club Lounge was amazing. We could see Acropolis, however, we couldn't all enjoy it as a family. "Thanks" to the hotel.- The swimming pool is way too small in terms of its size and the sunbeds, considering that they claim to be the largest hotel in Athens with over 700 rooms. Thumbs down on planning.- Concierge: We ask about the hop-on hop-off bus tours and he sends us on the hotel shuttle to the main square to take that bus, whereas later we found out that there is stop right in front of the hotel. "Forgot" to mention it? - What you don't see in the pictures on the hotel's website is that it is located in the area surrounded by shady businesses and by "night" clubs. Graffitti everywhere.- The hotel exterior as well as the rooms look to be in need of renovation. After getting used to the extremely nice hotels belonging to this chain, I was quite disappointed and definitely wouldn't call it a 5-star property.- Overall, I found the service to be a fake pleasant without real recognition of loyal customers. They certainly didn't go above and beyond for us.- I do not recommend it and I wouldn't give it a second chance either.
