Istanbul, Turkey
Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

The hotel has fairly large rooms with good space layouts and amenities. But the property is showing its age with peeling paint, old TV, telephones that only partly work etc etc. There is obviously a maintenance investment challenge at the moment, which might make sense given how Greece is fairing in general. But as an Intercon brand would have expected...

Located near to the city attractions and shopping areas. The rooms are spacious , clean and serviced regularly . The food is tasty ( though could not try much Greek food) . Did not face much of language issues ( unlike a number of European cities ) . Would like to come back with family

Great room, big and comfortable, and great location, but the best of course is the spa. When you order an omelette for breakfast make sure you tell them how many eggs to put you, because if not they will make you we five eggs (!!!!) which is crazy. also they don't have soy milk or almond milk which is disappointing.

I thoroughly enjoyed my two week stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. While the hotel is a bit of hike to the Acropolis and Plaka, but its a short $5 cab ride! I am an Ambassador Member and the morning breakfasts and happy hour snacks/drinks were excellent. The staff were outstanding and incredibly friendly/welcoming!

Great service, nice spacious rooms, city centre location for walkable distances to Acropolis and other attractions. Highly recommendable! A bit pricy for drinks & food, but that's to be expected I guess.

The breakfast is delicious! Great view of Athens from the top floor. It's not very close to downtown, but the free shuttle bus is really convenient. The room is spacious, had all accessories that you might need to use. Classy and elegant hotel, with welcome, helpful and friendly crew.

Stayed here for a long weekend on my own but hard to get bored in this hotel. The decor all over the hotel is classy and beautiful. Breathtaking view from the bar on top floor and overall staff were very friendly and helpful. Pool was smallish but very pleasant and relaxing. This hotel is not in the concentrated tourist area...
