A luxurious hotel, close to the shops, galleries & restaurants of Kolonaki, this hotel gushes service, comfort & relaxation. I opted for a semi-suite with access to the Club Intercontinental Lounge - snacks & drinks all day long, a suitable place to hold business meetings, staff on-hand to offer whatever is required. If you can, recommended! The room itself -...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 April 2017

We stayed here for 4 nights. Based on the location, you may think that its inconvenient, so did i until we stayed there. The hotel runs a shuttle service frequent enough for you to be spend the whole day in the city centre. It stops at Acropolis and the main square. So, put your worries aside. You can even take...

My wife and I stayed here for three days. From the moment we arrived we were treated like royalty. We selected an Acropolis view Club level room and could not have been more pleased with the room and the service. The room was large (even by American standards), clean, quiet and well appointed. Club level rooms have access to the...

Reviewed 5 days ago NEWvia mobile

The location is not the best for Athens. Rooms are clean. Staff is polite, a little slow. Cuvette is not suitable for standing (narrow base). Breakfast is mediocre. Elevators sometimes gave errors, probably because of the room car reader did not work properly. Meeting rooms are comfortable, air condition works.

Great Hotel. Friendly helpful staff We stayed in a Club Room and the Club lounge was great. There is a free shuttle bus to the main city square which runs frequently so although the Hotels location is not quite central it does not matter in the least. We stayed here for 2 nights before a Cruise and we liked it...

Stayed here last year prior to our cruise and decided to come back this year when we went on another cruise. We paid a small amount extra for an upgraded room that faced the Acropolis. It was well worth it. The service and food in the Concierge level was perfect. The rest of the staff was very friendly. We would...
