Perfect location, right in the center of Athens, close to all the major sights and shopping areas, with good accommodations and superb customer service--from the moment you enter the hotel to the time you leave.

A very special thanks to the Maitre D, Mr. Nikolopoulos, whom we contacted in advance, letting him know of our specific food allergies/restrictions. The kitchen staff went ABOVE and BEYOND to ensure our comfort, preparing dishes that made our stay very enjoyable. Thank you to the the chefs, captain and servers at Ambrosia restaurant--you all were amazing!

We will definitely visit this hotel again whenever we return to Athens!

While on vacation in Greece, and our time in Athens, we stayed 3 nights at the Crowne Plaza. The location was excellent, less than 30 mins from the airport and very close to all the sites and City Center.

The room was a good size, with a large very contemporary bathroom (tub and shower), full stocked minibar (which we didn't take advantage of), and strong WiFi. The breakfsast on top floor (7th floor) was excellent with both hot and cold options. The staff was very friendly and the only downside was our room had 2 twin beds versus 1 double, queen or king bed. My wife and I survived so no big deal. Other than this issue, which can be addressed easily, we highly recommend staying at this hotel!

I stayed here on a business trip, but factored in time to see the sights too.
It’s about a 35min drive from the airport, I booked a transfer service online and was met in arrivals. Expect to pay around €35-39 for a single trip.
Checkin was quick and painless, as was check out. I had a second floor room that was clean, comfortable bed and reasonable sized bathroom. The shower screen isn’t big enough to cover the spray area, so be prepared for a damp floor.
Staff were flawless, great service and friendly too. Prices aren’t that expensive and the restaurant has a good menu. Breakfast caters for all, there is the healthy option but I’ll go eggs and bacon every-time.
The hotel wasn’t overly busy with it being out of peak time and with the Corona virus clipping travel.
The hotel introduced hand sanitisers at the entrance to the lift and dining room to assist with hygiene.
Most attractions are within walking distance. 4K to the Acropolis, but public Transport and taxis are readily available. best option is come out the hotel, cross the road and turn left. you are then facing the correct way for the main attractions and taxis won’t take the long way.
Next time I’m in town I will stay here.

We were on a tour of Greece and this was our Athens hotel for 3 nights. On arrival our room was very small and we had booked a Club room. We inquired with the front desk and they arranged for us to move within 30 minutes. The hotel has a variety of room sizes on every floor. We were very happy with the room they moved us to. It was a nice size and had a large tub and shower. The room had a refrigerator too. The location was good for getting to the sights of the city.
The staff was very friendly at the hotel from the front desk to the restaurant. The breakfast buffet was very good with fresh squeezed orange juice. The buffet had gloves and required everyone to wear a mask. Our room was cleaned daily too.
I would recommend this hotel.

Outstanding hotel. I visited for 4 days with my wife as part of our 25 Wedding anniversary. I am a Diamond Elite member and we were upgraded to a 6 floor club room with access to the rather small club lounge which was usually empty but offered a good selection of spirits, beers, wines and soft drinks , as well as pastries and even small meat and fish dishes. Breakfast on the top floor featured an impressive range of hot and cold dishes and a great machine pressing fresh oranges. We also ate twice at Vlassis, just across the road which did great Greek dishes. The hotel is around €6-10 taxi from city centre, walkable in 30 minutes. We took the metro directly from airport as the nearest station is 5 minutes walk from hotel (€9 per person. I have stayed at numerous IHG properties worldwide but was particularly impressed with the staff at Crowne Plaza Athens, everyone was unfailingly helpful, polite and professional, a real credit to the brand. We will definitely stay again.

I cannot praise the Crowne Plaza Hotel and its staff too highly.
Every member of staff from management, to reception staff, catering and cleaning staff , were exceptionally caring and considerate throughout our stay.
They were warm and compassionate and made reasonable adjustments for the Disabled children in our party.
The Hotel's location was in a safe environment and ideal for easy access to the Metro and to visiting historical sites and other places of national and cultural interest.
The rooms were comfortable, spacious, clean and well maintained and there was a wide variety of food to choose from also at breakfast times.
Management and staff were always pleasant, helpful, welcoming, professional and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them to make our stay an enjoyable and memorable one.
A great hotel to stay in.

I stayed in this hotel during my business trip in Athens and I can tell you that the services are not what you’ll expect from this hotel. They gave me a room at 3rd level and when I arrived in front of the door, the plates and bottles from previous quests was left in front of the door. Inside the room I found a terrible cigar smell even that the room was for non smokers. I went at reception to solve the issue and they just excused and they promise me to send someone to vent the room. At my return at the room, nothing was changed except the trash in front of the door.

I asked the receptionist to change the room but he told me that everything is booked and... I have to take it or...leave it.

I do not recomend this hotel!!!

Check in and out was smooth; staff seems friendly and helpful. Stayed on the 6th lounge floor, but unfortunately, did not have access to the lounge (even as Platinum member). Room was small but comfortable. Shower/tub combo has unusual half open design, which tends to allow water onto bathroom floor. Has a small gym in basement or lower level (LL). there is a small pool and a restaurant on the top floor with nice view of Lycabettus Hill. Location is a little away from main tourist area of Syntagma, Monastiraki, and Acropolis, but hotel is 5 minute walk to Metro station Megaro Moussikis or Bus Stop Ilissia; fairly convenient stops from the airport (45-60 minutes). Overall, a nice hotel with helpful staff in a fairly convenient location.

This hotel was about 45 minutes from the Athens airport. It is in a good location, about 15 minutes from the Acropolis and within 20 minutes walking distance to many restaurants.
Rooms are small, beds are comfortable with nice quilts. We liked that the beds in out twin beds room were separated by a night stand.
Breakfast was included and was just okay. There is also a restaurant and bar on the top floor. There is also a pool on the 7th floor but we were not able to use it because there is no shade and they would not open the sun umbrellas because they said it was too windy. I have been to other resorts and know that there are umbrellas made for high wind conditions.

Check in at this hotel was fast.
Breakfast had limited choice but just enough to have a pleasant and quality meal. It was served at the top floor near the pool, a nice area.
The workers are friendly and happy.

The lobby area was closed due to Covid, but i would imagine that in other times it would be busy and lively.

Front desk team always provided directions on where to go and suggestions on what to visit. If you don't mind walking, a good amount of locations to visit are nearby.

Also, not far from the hotel there is a commercial street where you can get a haircut and do your laundry, buy some medicine and enjoy the local lifestyle. Also there are some restaurants in the vicinity that are not on the tourist map, so a good place to enjoy local / non-touristy atmosphere. The National Art Gallery is at a walking distance and right next to it there is a red bus / city touring stop. And there is a clinic to get a covid test at walking distance as well.
Just next to the hotel there is a small grocery store and an ATM.

Everything was running smoothly during my stay.
I stayed at this hotel twice and the experience was top at both counts.
