                                    The comfort, safety and great location.

                                    too expensive breakfast.

                                    I thought the concierge was very helpful and the free shuttle service was convenient.

                                    The rooms were dated, I felt like the fact that I booked through Booked.net I was a “second-rate” guest, and the cost of the breakfast was exorbitantly expensive considering what you got (and early in the morning you were forced to pay, considering the hotel's location).

                                    The front desk staff was helpful and friendly, and the wait staff in the bar and cafe was lovely. It was well located on a quiet street and the Syngtama (spelling probably wrong, but the central metro station) shuttlebus was invaluable.

                                    The door staff and bell desk usually looked like our presence irritated them, and the concierge staff often gave conflicting/confusing information. People familiar with InterContinental hotels could be disappointed, and those expecting 5-star on the level of the Four Seasons should steer clear.

                                    The location close to the center and to Acropolis and to other points of interest is excellent.

                                    The halls were smelly. It improved or I got used to the smell. It seemd a little run down, but the room was excellently cleaned.

                                    The Hotel is light, airy and in a relatively good location. The facilities are great and the staff warm and friendly,

                                    The pool is small in comparison to the size of the hotel and crowded. The drinks/coffee and food is hugely expensiove compared to eating/drinking outside the hotel. The toletries are generally not as good as other 'Premium' brand hotels and there are no complimentary bottles of water, you have to pay Euro 5.50 for a small bottle of local water

                                    One of the main advantages of the Athenaeum Intercontinental is that they provide a free shuttle bus to and from the city center. If you are a tourist, this means that you can visit most of the main tourist spots without the need to hire a taxi.

                                    King size bed for a solo traveller was great

                                    Food quality compared to the rest of greece was no good. Basic things like chips were over cooked or oil was soaked on oil. The food is very much over priced. They also charge you 20 euros for use of their wifi for a 24hr period, where in other hotels it is free. Wouldnt recommend this hotel, I'm glad I only stayed 24hours there.

                                    The Athenaeum InterContinental is definately the best hotel in Athens! Our room was clean and spacious, the breakfast amazing. We relaxed by the pool and enjoyed treatments at the hotel's Spa. The free shuttle bus to Syntagma is square was also fantastic! Don't miss the Premiere rooftop restaurant and bar. The food is excellent, the view unforgetable. But what makes this hotel better than any other hotel in Athens is the friendliness and politeness of the staff. We will definately come back as soon as we can.

                                    Nice big rooms with fantastically comfortable beds. Free hourly shuttle to Syntagma Square was brilliant. Excellent 24 hour gym.

                                    Getting to the hotel by Metro is easy, but the walk from the metro station is not very nice. Surrounding streets are rough and the main road is difficult to cross safely. Take a cab if you can. The wi-fi is very expensive. Would be nice if it was free to use in the public areas. There were two menus poolside with different prices (club sandwich was 9.50 Euros on the pool bar menu, but 16.50 Euros on the cafe/restaurant menu. Needless to say, we were charged the higher rate. Breakfast seemed a little expensive at 32 Euros for a Continental breakfast and 39 Euros for the Athenaeum breakfast. It did not look that special. Pool only opens at 9am and closes at 8pm. Would be nice if these hours could be extended in the hot summer evenings. Overall the ground floor lobby area, cafe and restaurant lack intimacy and magic. Seemed a little stark, dark and very business-ey. The hotel's website should mention they provide a free shuttle to Syntagma Square.

                                    I am travelling all over the world for business and this is one of the best hotels I ever stayed. I had my meetings there and I must say that everything was perfect. The meeting facilities, the service, the staff. The location is perfect (near the business area but also near the city centre). A complimentary shuttle bus takes you to Syntagma square almost every half an hour. The breakfast was amazing. the Club lounge and the Premiere restaurant and Bar fantastic. Internet was fast and meeting room options were the bets I have ever seen! I will definately arange my future meetings in Athens in this hotel. I also enjoyed the swimming pool ans Spa.
