Here in a large work conference. Hotel is bright clean and friendly. Rooms are excellent. I stayed in 918 and had a lovely view of the Parthenon. Food was mainly buffet as was catering for large numbers so can't comment on the menu but the buffet options were numerous and of good quality. Very expensive to drink in the bar...

I stayed at the Intercontinental Athenaeum for a Sales Conference at the beginning of 2017. The hotel has excellent conference and event facilities, accommodating very large groups easily. The service at the hotel was excellent - in every area, from check in, bar staff, waiters and waitresses, event hosts and concierge. The food we had at the hotel at breakfast...

Very satisfied by the service. Very friendly staff. Especially Mrs Fofo at the restaurant was extremely professional. Also housekeeping staff very polite. Not far from the town centre. There is also a complementary shuttle bus almost every half an hour going to the centre.

The best part of this hotel is the breakfast the worst, its location. In my numerous travels abroad to historical cities, I have generally preferred hotels which are centrally located and within walking distance of monuments/sights. This one is definitely not like one of those. Taxi or public transport is needed to go anywhere. Metro is not closeby. So cab...
