"The best location in Athens !"
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 location in Parlament Square, right at the edge of the Plaka district. This is the best location to stay in when in Athens !
"Elegant property right on Syntagma Square next door to the Grand Bretagne sister Hotel"
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 good wifi coverage (but a limit of 4-5 devices which if traveling as a couple may seem low (having a laptop, tablet and smartphone each will exceed this number). A bonus is you can use the spa and restaurant next door in the Grand Bretagne and all consumables will be billed to your room in the King George. (The GB also has some Churchillian postwar history which not a lot of folks may be aware of). Note there are doormen at the King George but not at the GB (for when you are in Spa attire transferring between the two properties via the street). Please note: if you don't set the do not disturb sign you will be awoken at 9am by Housekeeping even on weekends, so set it if you plan a lie in especially after a late and tiring arrival :) The doormen got us a reasonably priced taxi for our return trip to the airport (thanks Christos) and speak English very well. Water is provided in addition to the costed minibar. Overall I'd highly recommend for a city trip as everything is on your doorstep including the Metro. During the summer consider also the resort SPG properties like the Astir...
"Top luxury, fantastic service"
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 was on the street side of the hotel on a higher floor and had a double balcony overlooking the park across the street. We loved sitting out on the balcony in the evening, enjoying the night air with a glass of wine and a snack (wine, fruit, and chocolates courtesy of the hotel). We enjoyed a delicious breakfast every morning in the rooftop restaurant, which had a great view of the Acropolis. The service we received by everyone in the hotel - front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, etc. - was impressive. Do yourself a favor and stay at the King George.
"One of the world's best!"
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, smooth luxurious sheets, ultra-comfortable beds, gourmet breakfasts in Tudor Hall ballroom fit for a king, with fresh Greek produce, beautiful decor, furnishings & art and views of the Acropolis, Syndagma square & Parliament buildings. If you feel like pampering you can use the Grande Bretagne (sister hotel) spa next door or enjoy drinks on their rooftop! You will feel like royalty and never want to leave!
