I stayed here for two nights whilst on business. Typically I look to spend 150 euros a night maximum for such trips, however a colleague of mine had used IHG points and got a good rate, however I did not. €240 and €220 per night without breakfast is crazy money. Expect to pay an additional €40 yes FORTY euros for...

The room was clean and spacious with all the conveniences which made my husband and my stay there a memorable one.

I stayed with the family for 3 days on a long-weekend visit to Athens. The hotel is really nice, probably one of the best Intercontinental I stayed in.

The name InterContinental stands for known quality and this hotel delivers it. Even though it is one of the biggest in the city, you get the feeling of being treated as individual and this is the good thing. The banquet facilities in this hotel are enormous and the space is perfectly located and distributed.

Large business hotel with excellent convention facilities. Beats other business hotels through excellent staff, very large and quiet rooms which have nice seating area, surprisingly complete gym facilities, very nice breakfast. There is not much of a cosy neighborhood right around and it's a 15 min walk downtown, but right behind the hotel runs a trolley line which runs frequently...
