We stayed here for the weekend, in a lovely big Deluxe Bedroom with a view of the mighty Acropolis from the balcony. The room was very comfortable (apart from the water pressure in the shower whicj was very weak...) and the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. But the best thing about this hotel is the...

My partner and I were very happy to arrive here having arrived late from home. The restaurant staff although closing, took pity on us and served us a full dinner with excellent drinks. Breakfasts are historic with excellent and friendly service and lots of smiles from staff, with views of the monuments. The rooms are recently redeveloped and modern with...

I stayed for 7 nights due to an event at the hotel. Best service throughout- from Front Office on check in and check out to the lovely housekeeping attendant that would greet me every morning with a smile to the team that served the lunch and coffee breaks. Absolutely fab stay wouldn't hesitate to come back for a wee holiday;)

I can't say enough great things about this hotel. We stayed four nights at the King George in September 2016. The central location near Syntagma Square was fantastic. Our room was extremely spacious with a king bed and large sitting area. The bathroom was the ultimate in luxury with a tub, separate shower, double sinks, bath robes, etc. Our room...

So I've stayed at the King George several times and can honesty say it's one of the best luxury boutique hotels in the world! They are always consistent, friendly and welcoming & do Greek chic very well! It's the attention to detail and fine touches that will stay in your memory forever. Suites with fresh roses, Molton Brown bath products,...

In a wonderful location, right on Syntagma Sq, near metro, restaurnats, all historical sites and completely safe at night. Fabulous hotel. Not cheap but worth every penny. We were booked into a classic room but received an upgrade to a junior suite as we were here for 5 nights. Very spacious, well equipped, spotlessly clean. Very comfortable bed. Superb breakfast...

I've previously stayed next door at the slightly more opulent sister hotel (Grand Bretagne) but on the recommendation of a friend tried the King George for a recent visit. I'm quite happy I did- the more personal and intimate scale of the hotel was more to my liking, and the prices were markedly better for what's absolutely the same quality...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
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.
