After enduring the limitations of the plumbing system in Santorini, it was refreshing to be in a facility that offered a luxurious and "full service" bathroom with thick white towels and a real hot shower. We stayed in a standard, courtyard view room which was elegantly appointed with beautiful furniture, lovely art and high fiber count linens. However, others planning to spend some time at the King George should know that the "enchanting courtyard view" is anything but enchanting-- and it's a stretch to even call it a view. Basically, if you opt for a standard room, expect drapery over darkness. You face another building. So, if natural sunlight is your thing, spring for a more expensive view. If you just want a beautiful and luxuriously appointed place to relax after a day of touring in hot, dusty, graffiti-laden Athens, the standard room is just fine.
