Hotel is good but expensive for food and drink. Rooms clean and a good size and public areas are very nice. The food was good and the staff friendly and helpful and my stay in the hotel was pleasant. My first room was rather smelly being a smoking room but they soon changed me to a non-smoking room on request...

I think that this InterContinental offers great value for money. I believe that the hotel was renovated back in 2004 for the Olympics. Staff is friendly and the executive floor is worth the price, the service and the view to the Acropolis. We had booked a very spacious suite with Acropolis view. Recommended.

From the moment we arrived we were treated as though we were celebrities. Ushered to a different floor to check in as members of the Intercontinental hotel group. Dinner was faultless at the premier on the rooftop. Worth every cent as they continously surprised us with treats throughout the meal. The rooms are spotless and the linen high quality. We...

Stayed here with business with around 400 other people and so the hotel was very very busy. Cannot knock the service of the hotel, lovely helpful staff in all parts of the hotel. The food was a bit of a let down but it can be tricky to cook for such a late number, there was a few funky looking...

I have stayed here many, many times, and it remains a hotel I like a lot - BUT, they need to change their bedding. The bed bases are just 1970s, wobbly springs. The mattresses are OK but not 5 stars level either. There are some worse 5 stars in Athens in this respect (see my other reviews), but also some...
