My wife and I stayed at the King George for our first visit to Greece. The views of the Acropolis whilst having breakfast in the very elegant 7th floor restaurant are spectacular. The staff are very efficient and friendly throughout the hotel. We made use of the rooftop bar of the adjacent sister hotel the Grande Bretagne during our stay...

My second visit here in the last couple of years and I'm delighted to say that it has maintained its excellence. It's less stuffy and formal than its sister hotel the Grand Bretagne but still maintains its status as luxurious. Speedy and hassle free check in. The junior suite I stayed in was beautiful, bed exceptionally comfortable(I'm quite fussy) and...

This hotel was nothing short of luxury and excellence. Apart from the comfort of the hotel, my husband and I were blown away by the exceptional customer service we received by the hotel staff. The hotel staff truly went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. Unfortunately, I became very ill during my trip and while staying at the...

Planed to stay one night on the way home. Wound up staying three nights due to an air traffic controller strike. Hotel and spa, while expensive, are fantastic and the staff and concierges were very helpful. Rooftop bar/restaurant has an amazing view of the Acropolis.

A very splendid old style hotel with great charm. Rooms look recently refurbished and had a good and comfortable bed. The only downside being a small, strangely shaped shower area in what was otherwise a decent bathroom. Not good if you are big or have movement difficulty. Staff helpful and very willing. Good options for eating out nearby. Facilities are...

Nothing "big box hotel" at the King George! One gets a feeling of nostalgia at this hotel - the stately marble lobby, understated, mellow decoration, a peaceful feel, attentive staff. The rooms are comfortable, though a bit dated and starting to show wear. The hallways definitely are showing wear. In all fairness, there is an active refurbishment program underway to...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a few days right after Christmas. We paid the extra money for a view of the Acropolis (which wasn't great) and a deluxe room. We were highly disappointed at the noise level from the restaurant located on the rooftop. It was extremely loud in the morning with the breakfast buffet going...

This was another hotel a while ago but the bretagne bought it and share some facilities with it. It's in the perfect location and adjacent to The bretagne. Centrally located with a chic style compared to any other Hotel in Athens. The we were there when Obama visited after the first day the demonstrations stopped. This hotel was right on...

Fantastic luxury hotel centrally located at syntagma square - easy to get all over Athens from here! The rooms are well appointed, with a feel of luxury, and the sister property next door The Grand Bretagne is even more opulent - which you will visit if you wish to use the spa and gym facilities - again top notch.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
