Our Holiday Inn® hotels make it easy to explore the Greek capital, a city of myth, culture and late-night revelry. The iconic relics of ancient are at its center, at the foot of the mighty Acropolis, the cradle of Western civilization.
It's a quick ride from our hotels in to the city center. Stroll along the promenade that links the city's archaeological highlights. Rising nearly 500 feet above , the Acropolis is crowned by the 2,500-year-old Doric Parthenon temple. The shiny new is a trove of Athenian treasures, where you can wander among sculptures of burly Greek gods and be swept back in time by the chariots of the Parthenon frieze. Nearby sits the ancient AgorÁ marketplace, where democracy was born. Before returning to your hotel, hike or take the funicular up to the conical peak of to see the sunset.
Shop for Athenian-style fashion in Ermou and Kolonaki, reviving over coffee and people-watching on . Your hotel is near the 19th-century Central Market in Monastiraki neighborhood-get here early for the freshest produce. For views of the Acropolis glowing gold on the hillside, find a taverna with alfresco seating in Plaka district. Greek favorites like moussaka and spinach pie go nicely with crisp Retsina wines. There are good-value pita souvlaki stands on almost every corner. The lively Psiri district is crammed with little ouzeries serving fiery ouzo liquor with mezedes (appetizers) and pumping DJ bars. Or end the day in Kolonaki's chic lounge bars.
Book one of our hotels in February for Greek-style carnival at Apokries or in summer for open-air music festivals galore. When temperatures soar, join locals at beaches like Glyfada for a refreshing dip in the sea.
This is a great hotel in Athens. Close to the city centre but also conveniently close to the seaside area.
The hotel is great with excellent amenities while the staff are very friendly and helpful[More] ready to assist and offer suggestions and advise.
I will definitely recommend it!
Ps. Please note that there are not many things in a walking area to do/see but plenty of things within a 5-10 minuted drive.[Less]

Wonderful stay yet again but a little disappointed
Being part of the IHG rewards executive club is definitely an added bonus as you have access to the club lounge and it’s wonderful facilities. This always adds to your stay and provides you with the[More] feeling that you are a valued customer
My wife and I have stayed in many intercontinental hotels and although always impressed the laid back, warm and welcoming atmosphere and staff in the this particular hotel was so refreshing and definitely added to enhance our experience.
Sadly only downside was that despite receiving and replying to pre-arrival email and explaining that it was our anniversary, we received absolutely no response which was disappointing and when we arrived we could not reserve a table in your restaurant as it was fully booked.,[Less]

Good location and friendly staff
I want to say this is very good hotel in convenient location and staff are very friendly. The only problem is I was told there is hotel shuttle bus outside of terminal building in the parking area[More] and have regular departure from airport to hotel every hour. But when we arrived there and waited from 6:10 to 7:00PM, the bus didn’t show up. It was very cold! We have to took X95 to hotel. If we knew there was no bus at all, we could left earlier![Less]
ATH Holiday Inn
Great stay - no complaints - will stay again - nice staff[Less]
Convenient location off highway, Attentive Friendly Staff , Clean and Comfortable room and facilities. Parking is a issue. The parking lot is jammed packed especially during hours of operation of[More] building next door. Very congested driving around hotel trying to find a place to park. A real drag when you are tired and just want to check in and rest after a long flight..
Very likely to return next time.[Less]
