St George Lycabettus is a very nice hotel situated up on the slope of Lycabettus Hill in the fashionable Kolonaki neighborhood. The views of the Acropolis are stunning, although I think some artistic license has been used in regard to the pictures they use on the website. We paid extra for an Acropolis view and we did have one... if we went outside on our balcony. Our friends, who paid for the same room, got a few view of it from their room and windows, so be sure and ask which room you will get when you book.
The little bar/restaurant down across the street associated with the hotel (Frame) was quite good. The staff was professional and courteous if not a little snooty. The staff at the restaurant up on the top of the hotel were a little more snooty. We did not eat there, but we did have a drink or two and yes, they are expensive, but the view is worth it.
A few small complaints, the beds are hard (although this seems to be the case all over Greece) and the wifi situation is ridiculous. It is free in the lobby (slow) but if you pay 20 euros and up then you can use the fast wifi. Why luxury five-star hotels are chintzy with the wifi in this day and age is beyond me. It is quite annoying to be nickled and euroed to death for something that should be included in the room like my hair dryer.
All in all, the St George Lycabettus was a very nice hotel and I would recommend it.
