Superb 9.0 From 314 reviews

Fair 4.0
Unexpected Bad experience
it was nice until the last day, when the refrigerator didn't work, so I asked the staff to change it, and they did. but the new refrigerator was not working also, but the staff told me that it needs few hours, it was around 1h pm, I waited till 10 pm,, and when all my baby food were damaged, so the staff sent me a employee that he told me you're right this refrigerator is not working also but we can't change it now, all we can do is to give you some ice... I didn't expect this answer from an intercontinental hotel.. I spent all my last night without refrigerator and I left the other day without getting even a sorry note from the staff..

Fair 4.0
The hotel was spacious but my room had a horrible smell of cigarettes. I told the front desk but they didn’t help. Also I paid for a room with a view, and my view were some dilapidated buildings. The rooftop is very nice with a great view of the acropolis. The breakfast was also very good.

Exceptional 10.0
A little piece of heaven!
Our family felt a sense of peace at the InterContinental. We were well take care of and enjoyed the luxurious accommodations. The Michelin Star restaurant on the top floor was also a treat. The breakfast buffet was delightful.

Exceptional 10.0
Good choice of hotel in Athens
Large luxurious hotel. Good wi if access. Spacious room and excellent small traditional restaurants within walking distance plus Premier restaurant on hotel rooftop has unparalleled view of Acropolis, tasty dishes and excellent service (though not cheap). Was a memorable dinner to mark our last night in Athens. Only drawback was that a HUGE number of guests arrived late morning apparently bound for a Princess Cruise, so check in lines were very long and lobby crowded an noisy until the group could be accommodated. We had a pleasant check in experience (room not ready as we were early) with Mark who was courteous and helpful and got us settled in asap, for which we were most appreciative. Even the bell staff was helpful and friendly. Nice workout facility open 24 hours and pool area nearby although once again very crowded but to be expected this time of year. Would stay here again as received excellent hotel experience for a reasonable price

Very Good 8.0
Great accommodations, not so much location
Great building, spacious room. Breakfast was good a lot of variety, pool was great staff very friendly and accommodating. Location not so great, wish it was closer to the red line train station, it was about 5 long blocks and had to cross a dangerous highway with no light. neighborhood looks desolate.
