We stayed here in April. My husband had inadvertently booked a room for 1 person, but as soon as the check in staff saw we were 3, she was very accommodative and got us a room in which a spare bed was added. Location is very close to acropolis and plaka area. Plenty of shopping and places to eat nearby....

Stayed here with my better half and our 4 month old son so we could attend the St Patrick's Day ball next door at the Grande Bretagne (owned by the same group as the King George). A few details, the lobby is luxurious yet has a David Bowie mosaic at the far end which is offbeat. One downside to the...

Side by side with the more luxurious Grande Bretagne Luxury Collection, I found the King George warm and welcoming. The staff is very friendly. The breakfast is served at the beautiful Tudor Hall Dining Restaurant on 7th floor which offers a great view on the Acropolis!

Got a deluxe room on first (but really second after the mezanine) floor front of hotel. Very spacious and the bed was OUTSTANDING! Very nice mattress and extremely comfortable. We got the deluxe room with breakfast and Acropolis tickets for 220euro which was a great deal. The breakfast was excellent, but definitely not worth the 40euro if it didn't come...

It's really a traditional 5 star city hotel experience. The building, the place, the decor, the comfort ... Our room (604) had 2 balconies to Sintagma square with magnificent views of Acropolis. We enjoyed a lot the spa/indoor poor at sister property next door (free of charge!). The whole team (door, front desk, room service, breafast room, spa) is excelent:...

Well impressed with the King George Hotel. We stayed for 3 nights and found the rooms, the food, the staff and the location to be terrific. It's adjacent to its sister hotel, The Grande Bretagne which is much larger and more expensive. We had a meal in both hotel restaurants and though both were excellent, found the view and ambiance...

King George hotel was great. I'd recommend it to those who would prefer an up market hotel. The only issue is the shower, it's really not meant to be a shower but rather a bath with a shower head. It's really a nuisance.

We arrived to Athens after a long day of travel to this luxury hotel in the heart of Athens. Our rooms were very nice with a welcome drink. We stayed at the hotel for two nights and would definitely stay there again. The staff was very helpful and arranged drivers to and from the airport. Room top restaurant has stunning...

This hotel is very well located, in the middle of the old and vibrant city in Athen. The rooftop has a beautiful view on the acropolis...but the restaurant is extremely expensive for the city (and not phenomenal). The rooms are nice and luxurious, but small. Overall recommended.

The location of this hotel is perfect, close to of museums and the Acropolis. We were upgraded to a grand suite which had a balcony overlooking the Square. The room was beautiful as was the service. The breakfast was one of the best I've ever had and the view from the restaurant of the Acropolis was stunning.

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.
