My husband and I, along with our two friends, stayed at the hotel for three nights before our cruise in October. I apologize for posting this way later than I should have... Everything was stellar! The front desk staff, the concierges, the housekeeping staff as well as the staff upstairs at the Premiere restaurant were all as helpful as could be. My friends and I had lots of questions and everybody was amazing. From restaurant recommendations to arranging transportation to the pier for four of us and a ton of luggage, everyone was at the top of their game. I had a question when we were checking out and Konstantinos went above and beyond to make sure it was resolved to my satisfaction. I highly recommend this property. A perfect place to stay if you're on a cruise because it's only about 15 minutes from the pier!

We were only able to stay one night at the IHG in Athens GR but it was a memorable stay. The hotel is modern & beautiful with large Art pieces all around the property. And even though the hotel is large inside it is inviting. Our room was perfectly appointed and comfortable. Our dinner at the restaurant in the Lobby area (restaurant on the rooftop was booked) was really good. One does not often expect a great dinner at a hotel restaurant. To top it off the hotel unexpectantly delivered champagne to our room! Highly recommend!
