There are more surprises than meets the eye in the busy center of Athens. Built on the banks of the ancient Ilissos river, once mentioned in Plato's writings and still flowing secretly beneath the property's main road, the Crowne Plaza Athens City Center is an ultra-modern tribute to Athens' rich past and the city's millennia of fascinating history.
The award-winning hotel lies strategically in the central Athens suburb of Ilissia, named after its hidden historic river, only a 20-minute leisurely walk from the happening heart of the capital, Syntagma Square.
Yet to call the Crowne Plaza simply a city hotel falls short of its true description. The property is a hub for discovering the vibrancy of Athens in a new light. It is as much a high-tech business hotel as it is a destination for leisure, shopping and nightlife. This is one of the newest hotels in the city, boasting sophisticated facilities and surprising gourmet flair that conspire to guarantee spectacular Greek hospitality with first-class western standards.
