Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Good hotel. Could be better
Typical Holiday Inn hotel. It is what you expect. Maybe a bit more upscale than some Holiday Inn you find in North America. But things can be better.
1) It is an hotel airport with free Shuttle. But the shuttle runs every 60 min in the morning. This is not acceptable. I used to stay in hotel airport with shuttle at least twice as frequent as this, minimum. Otherwise, it might be more convenient to stay downtown and grab a cab.
2) Not easy to get a taxi to go downtown. The only choise presented to me by the staff was the public bus and not taxi stand at the hotel (or nearby(
3) Extra-fees are added to your bill if you use credit card. I think it is unacceptable for a Holiday Inn.
4) No express check-out ! Even for IHG member with credit card on file. Felt like I was 2 decades back in time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BSB1 Excellent location for Airport
Motorway access very easy and combined with the complimentary bus to and from the Airport, makes this an ideal hotel for first and final nights of a visit to Greece.
However there are also convenient links into Athens city from longer satays.

If you are staying near this airport this is an excellent option. Staff is also attentive and the rooms are clean and fairly new.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tunonhil Perfect Hotel close to ATH
The room was updated with comfortable distribution and perfect beds to rest overnight, before taking off back home. Everything was very clean and tidy. Mattress, pillows, toiletries and towels very well selected. A great recommendation if you should be close to the airport.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JimK1 A very nice hotel and stay. Pleasant surprise.
This was my first Holiday Inn stay since I was a child. I was very impressed with the staff. We arrived late (1 am'ish) and the gentleman at the desk was superb. He gave us info on the bus, train and shuttle. We chatted personally as well. NOTE: I had a problem with the taxi driver from ATH to the hotel. Make note, and this hurts coming from a Greek-American, you should not have to pay more than 25 euros for the trip top the hotel even if it is past midnight! The driver claimed the fare doubles from 12a-5am,;well, it doesn't from the meter, it automatically calculates on the meter! I (sadly) got had and he doubled the meter price plus my bags! Desperate times, I guess. ASK for a receipt or, if you feel something is not right, go to the hotel clerk (as we were told we could do) if you think something is wrong. I wish I knew about the 'rules' ahead of time, as I would have been armed better for a fight. I was taken advantage of as a typical tourist even though I am a versed traveler and GREEK. Did not matter to him...money is money. Now I know...use my knowledge!
The taxis run flat fares TO THE CITY CENTER during peak and non-peak times but not to the hotels. Use the shuttle when you can and save the expense of the taxi!
The next morning, we left our bags for my uncle to pick them up and the staff, again, was very professional. Also, handled my email request for a rollaway bed for my son. I loved the shuttle for our return trip to the airport. Clean room. Nice hotel overall. Exceeded my expectations. Worth the 10 minute ride from the airport versus the other hotel next to ATH which is also much more expensive. Nicely done, thanks!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by traveler not tourist free airport shuttle not available
Hotel staff surly and aggressive when telling us the free airport shuttle was booked. The shuttle stops at 10.p.m if your flight arrives later, you pay for a taxi. You can't book the shuttle in advance and when we checked in it was booked from 6 a.m. to 11 a.m. Would not recommend this hotel if your aim is a seamless trip to the airport. We had to pay for taxi's both ways. Desk staff unhelpful and insisted any disagreement we had should be taken up with Holiday Inn.
Attempt to reach Holiday Inn customer care directed us to European phone resulting in more than five minutes on hold from U.S. to Europe. Gave up after second try.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by maraki1o21 Great for a night stay close to airport
My friends and I needed a place to stay that was close enough to the airport for an 8 a.m. flight to Santorini. We considered the hotel literally across the street from the airport, but this one was only a 15 minute drive away and they provided a shuttle the next morning back to the airport, and for a MUCH better price. It was a great hotel- very nicely decorated and furnished, the beds were very comfortable, the pillows felt luxurious; although the room did get very warm at night. Overall a great experience for a night or two in Athens. It was a great hotel but would not recommend it if you are staying in the city for an extended amount of time and are wanting to see the city - it's about 20-30 minutes away from the center.
