Fodor's Review

With a marble atrium lobby, central fountain, and private art collection, Athens's largest hotel provides a cool oasis on a busy city street. The hotel has had extesive renovations and updates since it opened its doors in 1982. Standard rooms have marble floors in the sitting area, marble bathrooms, carpet under the bed, bright cobalt blue or vibrant green fabrics, and business-oriented conveniences like a two-line phone and a work desk. The eighth- and ninth-floor Executive

Club level has a private check-in, a lounge with an Acropolis view and a library, complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails, and private meeting rooms separate from the vast conference facilities. The I-Spa features the French Huile d'Olive and Ila organic cosmetics and therapies. The hotel is on a main thoroughfare into the city at the edge of a residential, working-class neighborhood; an hourly shuttle runs to Syntagma Square, about 10 minutes away.

What a shining Star!!!

This hotel is just outstanding!!! The newly opened Restaurant with ist unique concept: Cafezoe. This is a restaurant which one has to see! Compliments on service, friendly staff and fantastic pool area. Everything brandnew and certainly an InterContinental Hotel

Next Time I'll Try the Grande Bretagne

Very nice rooms, and a fabulous brunch buffet, but I would pass on the hotel and just visit for the brunch. Poor service - the management seemed pretty indifferent about botched transportation for me at one point. I really cannot recommend it.
