King George, A Luxury Collection Hotel
Ranked #6 of 282 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 January 2014

I stayed here a for a few days in June 2013 soon after the hotel opened. We used our stay in Athens as a jumping off point for a long trip. We loved the hotel and after a long day of travel, the plush accommodations were a lovely luxury. We were upgraded to a suite which was absolutely fantastic and well appointed with antique pieces. They didn't appear to skimp anywhere - even the soaps, etc were of good quality. (That is a pet peeve of mine - nice hotel's, cheap soap). Our stay felt truly luxurious.

We did not take a meal in the dining room which overlooks the Acropolis, but the view was lovely. Its central location was great. An easy walk to attractions, food, coffee, shopping. We felt safe walking at night and went next door to the adjacent hotel for roof top drinks each night (GREAT!). Also, I took advantage of the free internet in the lobby and had help from the staff for arranging restaurants. All the staff we encountered were most pleasant, helpful and patient as we asked for advice.

The gym is small so I ran outside and felt safe doing so. If I had one note to the hotel, it would be - the lights in our room were surprisingly confusing. A note card or a staff person to explain at the beginning of the stay might be useful. But perhaps we were just jet lagged?

i have stayed at King George on business numerous times. it is by far my favorite hotel in Athens. it cannot be faulted on any grounds.. rooms are luxurious and unique , they are filled with antiques and give you a feeling of being immersed in a different era , the dining/ breakfast terrace with a view of the Acropolis is to die for.. the breakfast among the best i have had in any hotel and includes local specialities.. service is immaculate, location could not be more central.. all in all one of my favorite city hotels in the world..

Lovely hotel, excellent location and great staff. Hotel has been fully refurbished and is immaculate. Everything about the place is great. The restaurant with the terrace is lovely and the staff are very attentive when required. Excellent food and ambiance. You have full access to the spa at the grand hotel next door which is well worth taking up. A great place to stay and exceptional value for money.

Just returned and they have just remolded the hotel and it is beautiful. Staff is very helpful. The only complaints are the cooling was not working great. There is free wifi in the lobby but not in the rooms. But the worst was that because we had a early fight which was checking out at 6:15 AM and there was no coffee around the breakfast area did not open till 6:30 AM. I need my coffee with being on the road for the next upcoming 24 hours.
