We visited Athenaeum Intercontinental in October, November and February with our family. We loved it. We stayed in three different types of room. The best one was a balcony suite with view to the Acropolis. Everything in the hotel was impeccable. The staff is polite, efficient friendly and eager to fulfill all your needs. Breakfast is great both at the...

This is a great hotel with very nice decoration, kind staff, and a great location. The hotel is ideal for tourism in Athens because it is almost in the middle of the city. It is just a 15-20 minutes walk to the base of the Acropolis and from there you can go pretty much all around the city. The rooms...

The hotel itself is situated in a not so pleasant area, although I think this is indicative of Athens as I stayed in a few areas and they were all pretty dire. However, this hotel offers a free shuttle bus which is worth it's wait in gold (you don't want to be walking around those streets trust me). The staff...

We booked a king bed superior view room for 170€/night, and we only got the king bed! The room was neither superior, nor had a superior view, unless the view over the Syngrou Avenue is supposed to be superior! The worst thing however was that we were given a room as part of two joint, connecting rooms, separated with an...

The hotel looks in need of renovation, however the room is clean and spacious. The one thing I wasn't able to make it work was the heater, but honestly most hotels in the Mediterranean do not have proper heating systems.. The breakfast offers a good variety of food and drinks. Pity the yogurt is not fresh..I expected to find some...

A great hotel, good amenities​, friendly staff, clean rooms and public areas. Although you are only 20 minutes walk from the Acropolis and similarly the old town, you have to walk along a very busy highway with fast moving traffic.
