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.
Hotel was very clean, tidy, good service, we signed up for the optional lounge feature which worked out very well for us (excellent service there)Only downside is the area it is in, but from my short experience in Athens including a quick tour I would guess all of the other areas are just as bad. No reflection on the hotel.
The company I work for hosted our annual conference at this hotel. Four of us girls arranged the evening before we checked in to have adjoining rooms and was assured this was no problem. Unfortunately when we actually checked in the next day, the adjoining rooms had been assigned to other guests. No real issue. Check in was quick and easy, we were given rooms on the same floor and relatively close to each other. We didn't realise at the time, but our rooms had been upgraded, since our other colleagues were on higher floors and said their rooms were quite old and tired looking, while ours were new and modern. Our rooms were ready when we checked in. Once we were settled, we headed down to the pool. The pool is really lovely. Not many sun loungers, so get there early! Towels and sun umbrellas are provided. There is an alternative lounge area up some stairs (not around the pool though). There is a bar and restaurant too.Since we were there for work, we only really got to see our rooms, the pool and the meeting rooms. The staff worked tirelessly to look after the hundreds of people during our conference and did a great job. The only negative experience, was one evening when we arrived back at the rooftop bar for drinks, the men were not allowed in wearing shorts. Under no circumstances. The Manager actually closed to bar. The staff arranged for some trousers to be delivered for those wanting to change and enter the bar. Overall a nice hotel for business guests.
We have just returned from a long weekend in Athens. The Hotel is perfectly located approx 10 mins from the City Centre. They run a regular shuttle bus from the Hotel throughout the day and up to 2200hrs to the centre free of charge.If that doesn't work for you a taxi will cost 5 Euros.The hotel as you would expect from an IHG was perfect from the pool right up to the outstanding roof top bar which gives you an outstanding view of the Acropolis etc.The rooms are spacious and clean .... Highly recommend it.
The Hotel was 5 Star quality, starting from the minute you walk in through the revolving door! The blue art piece of a man leaning down with extremities up, is the first thing you see! Then the huge service desk with several staff to Greet you!I was here as part of my Pre-Cruise Accommodation with Princess Cruises! They had picked me up at the Airport & took me to the Hotel.As the group of us, 7 in total, walked to the service desk, the representative from Princess Cruises met us! She told us that there was a wonderful evening organised for the night, If we were interested. I then checked myself in, which was quick & very efficient. The Staff were very friendly, polite & very helpful.My room was quite large, (I was traveling alone) with 2 single beds, a couch & chair, desk & tv in the lounge area nearest the window. There was a special luggage holder on the left of the room & several power points, which was good as I needed to charge my phone. I had my Euro power adapter & it slotted in very easily.The bathroom was Stunning! Big, sleek & very elegant! There was a mini bar & a variety of snacks available, but I didn't need any of these. I went to the bar & café down stairs & what a Treat! I asked the waiter for a nice sweet wine, like the Moscato that I drink at home and he bought me a wonderful wine that was delicious, full of flavour with a sweet sensation. Yum :) I ordered a smoked salmon roll with rocket & spinach, it was huge & very delicious.The service desk staff helped me to get onto the internet as I was having trouble doing it myself. As I was leaving early in the morning and doing a tour of the Acropolis, Parthenon & the Acropolis Museum with the Princess group, I asked room service if I could please have 2 bottles of drinking water brought up to my room. They were there is 5 minutes with the 2 bottles.The Hotel provides a very good variety of food & drinks for Breakfast, in a smorgasbord style. As our group was leaving at 8.30 in the morning, we had to leave all our bags- Outside our rooms by 8am. So that they could be taken down to the lobby & put under the bus in time, ready for our departure of 8.30. They did this swiftly, efficiently & with little interruption to the rest of the Hotel guests.I Will Definitely be staying at the InterContinental Athenaeum Next time I visit Athens!Thank You Guy's you All did an Amazing job making my stay a Wonderful start to my holiday!
Went there for a weekend stay with my wife and 1yr old and I must say I love it when I visit a chain and lives up to its standards. The hotel did not disappoint one bit! The staff provide some excellent service, the rooms are spacious and have the intercon charm and class to them, and the hotel has this lovely character to it. What I liked other than this is the excellent shuttle service to downtown very prompt and convenient, the concierge know their stuff all recommendations were spot on, the baby crib is good quality and well maintained and there is a small yet very nice pool that is very relaxing. On the negative side the food is very pricey and the quality doesn't reflect it so avoid eating there unless you really have too!!!
