Overview

Sleek contemporary style in an ancient setting, featuring a spa retreat and rooftop bar offering sweeping Parthenon and Acropolis views

The Lowdown

The gems of Athens may be ancient, but this 543-room behemoth is far from it. The sleek, clean-lined modern stay has everything an executive traveler could want – spacious rooms with workspaces, business facilities galore, a location close to the heart of town – along with plenty of diversions on hand when the work day is done. Sip cocktails by the pool, book in for a Deeply Detoxifying treatment to slough off the grime of the big city at the acclaimed I-Spa or settle in for an evening of dazzlement at the rooftop restaurant Premiere, which features Med cuisine and pulse-racing views of the Acropolis.

In the Area

Start your day the sweet way by taking the hotel shuttle to Syntagma Squareand admiring the neoclassical buildings lining Panepistimiou Avenue on your way to Aristokratikon, a chocolatier family that has been dispensing hand-made treats since the 1920s. Later, head to Kolonaki, a tony residential district on the southern slopes of Lycabettus hill where the big-ticket fashion houses and galleries congregate, mostly on Voukourestiou street. Check out the collection at the magnificent neoclassical Benaki Museum, which showcases Greek works from pre-historic times to contemporary artworks, then after dark dine on traditional Hellenic specialties at Dionysos, with its open-air terrace and rousing views across to the Acropolis.

This was our best stay at the hotel and we have very seldom seen such a friendly team.
ALL employees very genuinely friendly and willing to accommodate guest requests.
Housekeepers greeting us every day whenever crossing the corridors, guests relations escorting to the rooms, club lounge team being always one step ahead of our wishes.
Last but not least, the view to acropolis from our balcony...WOW!!

My stay at Intercontinental

I stayed at Intercontinental Athens for 6 nights and it was a good experience the hotel is around 10 min away from city center (Plaka area) it offers a free shuttle bus all day till around 10:30 pm. The rooms are spacious and rooms are renovated some of the rooms are smokings rooms. The receptionists are very helpful and facilitate the check in even for the big groups. Breakfast is good. Intercontinental is very good at organizing conferences and the staff are well prepared. Thank you for the good experience and for being very flexible. If I visit Athens again I will sure stay at Intercontinental Athens.
