3 BASIC CRITERIA FOR CHOOSING THE IDEAL HOTEL

Your next holiday destination has already been decided. Tickets have been purchased, and now the only thing remaining to decide (but perhaps the most important for ensuring a thoroughly successful vacation) is choosing the right hotel.

Location: Central and easily accessible

Where will you stay? Well, naturally – in the heart of the city! Our chosen hotel should be located in a central point within the city, or, better yet, somewhere just beyond the centre with good roads for quick and easy access. This is particularly true in cities known for their traffic problems. Moreover, the ideal hotel should be close to major means of public transport such as buses and subway and naturally should guarantee round-the-clock taxi service and easy car rentals as well. Furthermore, you should feel that you can easily return to your hotel at any time, even for a quick nap or dip in the hotel pool, in order to go back out again, refreshed and ready for further exploration.

The luxurious Hotel Athenaeum InterContinental Athens is located in the centre of the city on one of the capital’s main thoroughfares, Syngrou Avenue, which leads easily and directly to all of the major points of historical and commercial interest. With taxi, bus or car, in ten minutes you can be in the heart of the commercial district, in the traditional neighbourhoods of Plaka or Monastiraki, at the foot of the Acropolis or by the sea.

Lodging: Different rooms for every need

A vast selection of rooms and rates! How we travel: alone, with one other person, with the entire family (with or without nannies and assistants), with a group of friends or other families – all these factors and their consequent requirements influence our choice of hotel accommodations. A double room, two joined doubles or doubles that merely communicate via a shared door, a large family suite, two communicating suites…. The list of options needs to as extensive as our possible demands. And the sine qua non for any room carrying (and respecting) a “luxury” designation is absolute cleanliness and impeccable service.

The Athenaeum InterContinental Athens offers 533 rooms in 6 different categories: Superior rooms, Deluxe rooms, Family rooms, Rooms for persons with special needs (PWD), Club Intercontinental rooms with special club benefits and privileges and Suites of different sizes, kinds and configurations. All of the rooms are characterized by their quintessential cleanliness and state-of-the-art service.

Services & Amenities

Flexible check-in and check-out, Spa, Pool, Gymnasium, private dining and meeting rooms, concierge guide, conference rooms and incredible views! The services and amenities of a hotel to a large extent determine the hotel’s rating and number of stars – as well as the guests’ degree of satisfaction with their stay. Most of a hotel’s amenities depend on its facilities and infrastructure, while its services and quality depend on its staff.

The Athenaeum InterContinental Athens is a luxury 5-star hotel in the heart of Athens featuring state-of-the-art service by friendly, experienced, highly-trained staff who truly understand the art of hospitality. The hotel offers a gymnasium and Spa, outdoor pool, special services for guests staying in Club rooms and suites, a unique view of the Acropolis and surrounding hills and monuments, award-winning restaurants and one of the most beautiful and atmospheric cafés in the city.
