We had a very relaxing stay at the Intercontinental Athenaeum. The concierge on the Club Floor, Pammi, was wonderful and upgraded us as Ambassadors to a better suite on the top floor. The Club Lounge had a wonderful breakfast, tea and cocktail spread that was meticulously maintained and replenished. The balcony had a fantastic view of the Acropolis. It was...

Had a bad experience when I arrived at night with a baby, my husband and 4 bags and two guys at lobby kept staring rather than helping. I was disappointed as it was late night and came only for a day stay but the behaviour I saw was shocking.

The hotel does have a mini-bus to...

I recently visited a friend that was residing at the hotel, and I ordered an espresso from the room service. The total bill for the ESPRESSO was 11,50 euros. !!!!!!!! If you go down to the Vienna Coffee, they will charge you 7,50 euros. Which means they charge you an extra 4,00 euro just for the tray charge. Ridiculous prices....
