This hotel has a great lobby, really large, looks newly renovated. Sadly the rooms don't keep up. Though they aren't bad, they aren't good either. The rooms smell moldy, because they are. They folks working in the hotel couldn't be any nicer. The restaurant at the top of the hotel has a great view of the Parthenon, though it's pretty... More

The Intercontinental on Sygrou is one of their typical 5 Star City hotels. All in all what you expect from a European Intercontinental.

We've recently returned from a wonderful eight-night stay at the Intercontinental Atheneum Athens. The hotel is very well located for the main sights and most popular locations in Athens.
