    The hotel room was excellent. Huge, clean, comfortable. The lobby is great, the cafe' is great too. I like everything at Athenaeum Intercontinental, everytime I stay there!

    The location. Far away from the metro station, which is the best way to move around in Athens. There is a tram connection though very near.

    A fantastic stay as always. Super friendly staff, very helpful. Despite arriving from the islands looking very windblown and scruffy I was treated with the utmost discretion. I wil be back soon. You are my preferred Athens stopover.

    Superb

    the hotel room was very clean, the bed and pillows were very comfortable.. the staff was very friendly and spoke English very well..

    i had a problem with the hot water in the shower.. also the elevator system with the cards is a hassle everytime you enter, sometimes it did not read the card so you stayed in place in the dark..

    Superb

    Spacious rooms, clean, friendly staff Very nice hotel with honestly huge rooms nice bed selection of pillows perfect breakfast!

    Its a shame for no free WiFi or no free parking at a 5-star hotel. Also I was a bit annoyed that the hotel pre-authorize my credit card and charged me an extra 60 euros per night just for deposit reasons that will be available to me after 3-10 working days from the bank.
