Old school luxury in the ideal central location, everything is easily reachable by foot. Service is impeccable with attentive and friendly staff always on hand. This is definitely not a modern design hotel, think Louis XIV baroque with ornate furniture and writing desks. Deep marble bath was a joy. Breakfast amazing on the rooftop with spectacular view of the Acropolis.... More

Were served cocktails before dinner at the tudor hall on the 7th floor. Wonderful dining room. We sat at the fire place and enjoyed the fire. Peanuts and sweets were served and the waiters were very friendly. Super!

Time to Visit the New Athens If there ever there were an exciting time to visit Greece’s capital Athens, it is now. Why? Because crisis breeds creativity. Athens is in the throes of an entrepreneurial, cultural, spiritual and physical rebirth. A fresh generation of talented young Greek artists can be found at the very forefront of an exhilarating wave of... More

We spent 2 nights here while touring Athens, and couldn't have been happier. An attentive, friendly staff, superb amenities, and a fantastic location with views of Parliment, the fountain square, and a nighttime rooftop bar view of the Parthenon. A well stocked minibar, and complementary chocolates and signature liquor upon arrival. While the room view was of an alley, who... More

This is a great luxury hotel with numerous restaurants and shops in the next block. Syntagma Square is across the street and the Hotel Grande Bretagne, it's sister hotel, is next door. The Parthenon can be viewed from the roof top restaurant. Don't miss the changing of the guard at the top of the hour at the Hellenic Parliament...diagonal from... More

Hard to find anything to say that has not already been said by other reviewers. We stayed here for five nights prior to a cruise in November. Lovely room with balcony looking on to Syntagma Square and the Parliament building to the left. If you want a room with a view of the Acropolis you would have to be on... More

We had a room with a view of the Acropolis. Very cool! We ate dinner in the restaurant/ top floor I believe, and as the sun set we could see the Acropolis all lit up to the right and House of Parliament right next door to the left. It was nice to see the transition from day to night with... More

Really nice hotel but I would pick its attached Hotel "Grand Brigtanie" if I saw it before. Advise to choose the Sintagma square view rooms. You can use the spa in Grand Brigtanie; it is an excellent experience to enjoy this spa.

Delicious (and huge) breakfast buffet with breathtaking views of the Acropolis. Incredibly helpful and service-oriented staff. Concierge was amazing. As was staff at breakfast.

We stayed 2 nights at the King George Hotel and we loved the location, the ambience of the hotel, the staff, the toiletries, and the bed was so comfortable. This is a great hotel and would highly recommend it if you are staying in Athens.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
