Business, Not Pleasure

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 11, 2010

Staying at this hotel reminded me of the innkeeper's song from Les Miserables: "Here a little cut; There a little slice; Two percent for looking in the mirror twice." Prepare to get soaked by hidden fees. Call me foolish for not finding the laundry price list hidden in the back of the closet, but when the small bag we turned in was billed at over $300 we got no sympathy from the management. This hotel may be the only option in town for large business conventions, but it is no good for vacationers. You have to take a shuttle bus or taxi to get out of the dingy part of town where the hotel is located (make sure the taxi driver starts the meter or they will overcharge you also). There are no good restaurants within comfortable walking distance and the hotel restaurant is as overpriced as everything else. I was told that part of the hotel had been renovated, but you have to pay extra to stay there; our room looked like a cheap motel on the Gulf Coast. Avoid this hotel.

While this was a great hotel, if I had to do it all again I would choose a different hotel. For the price of the Intercontinental you could find a hotel much closer to the tourists sites.

Unique Quality: Near public tram lines
Great Lobby Area - Very Modern
Huge Clean Rooms

Had to stay here recently for business.
If you leave some laundry in a bag as you go out for the day, when you get back your jeans and shirt will have been washed, beautifully pressed and hung up in your wardrobe. Magic!
You have to visit the bar on the 9th florr, with its view over the Acropolis. Nicest at sunset. George the bar man is adept at dishing out the macademia nuts and cheesy compliments. The house white isn't bad, either.
Didn't eat in any of the restaurants as there are so many other good places in Athens (esp. Kolonaki and Psirri) but the sacher torte in the coffee shop looked absolutely wonderful.
Breakfast can be a la carte, but best on expenses. 23e plus 2e service charge quickly adds up!

Unique Quality: Where else would you see the Albanian Prime Minister and the Patriarch of the Orthodox Church of Cyprus at the same time?

I didn't have that pleasure of staying in this great hotel but had a chance to see from the close range since the dental congress was taking place here. This is a true symbol of luxury and wealth. And I heard that the American president Clinton and the famous Rollingstones chose the Intecontinetal hotel during their stays in Athens. This fact speaks for itself.
