"Top notch hotel in Syntagma Square"
Very professional staffed hotel who are helpful, courteous and give attention to detail. Its location is within sight of the Parliament Building where the guard changes every hour on the hour. Being at Syntagma Square is very central as the Acropolis is a 10 minute walk as are the interesting neighborhoods of Plaka and Anafiotika. The best part is the7th fl restaurant which serves breakfast and dinner overlooking the Square and the Parthenon. The food is excellent and the restaurant itself is beautiful.
This hotel was absolutely stunning! The design of the building is beautiful and the service was excellent. They also gave us access to the spa at Hotel Bretagne next door which was incredible!!!! Will absolutely be back!
"Very nice hotel on Syntagma Square"
I used the American Express Platinum card and did receive an upgrade and a $100 benefit that I used for dinner. Also received a complimentary drink with the SPG account. This is a lovely hotel with a great view of the Acropolis. The staff at the front deck and restaurant was amazing as was the quality of the dinner. I will definitely stay here again. It is very centrally located. The only negative for me is that I had an early flight to catch and was unable to enjoy a beautiful morning there.
We had a wonderful 4 day stay at this hotel. Staff excellent, very helpful, friendly and professional. Our son and his wife stayed in a deluxe room (they were upgraded) which was spacious, had a couch and a king bed. We were upgraded to a Jr. suite which had lovely amenities. Fresh fruit, liquor, beautiful fresh flowers. Very comfortable king bed, 2 chairs in bedroom area and two chairs a table and a desk in the sitting area. Bathroom had a separate shower as well as a tub with hand held shower. We were on the second floor with a balcony which looked out to Syntagma square and we could also see the parliament building and the changing of the guards. I wanted to comment on the other guests comments regarded the riot outside the hotel. Yes the tear gas was disconcerting ( a staff member came right away to help with our fan to expel the odor) but we never felt unsafe. There were many many police which did an effective job of dispersing the crowd. I believe the hotel also had security. Very sorry for their experience but ours was different. Definitely a must to stay here while in Athens.
"It's good to be the King (George)"
The King George is, as the name says, a Luxury Collection Starwood property that faces on to Symtagna square. Awesome central location. Smooth check in, with the front desk staff making you feel like you are a valued customer. There were 7 of us in 3 rooms. On their own, they combined two of the rooms in to a corner junior suite. Kudos to them for the initiative. The third room was around the corner on the same floor. Again extra points. Rooms were beautifully finished and spotless. Great air conditioning. The front desk staff doubled as concierges and their recommendations were terrific. The first night we were directed to O Tzitzikas Ke O Mermigkas (see separate review). Joseph at the front desk said this is where they eat and made the reservations for us. Good enough for me. All in all had a 5* experience and you can't go wrong staying here.
