“St. George Hotel, Mt. Lykabettos, Athens, GR”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very nice 'boutique' hotel located above central Athens. The streets leading up to it are steep if driving oneself and walking can be difficult. Vehicle parking can be an adventure. However, if one enjoys walking one can tour on foot the many sights surrounding Platiea Syntagmas and the Parliament below and the parkland of the peak of Mt. Lykabettos above.

Room Tip: Room views vary with the least expensive having a view of the concrete of a central shaft space.

Acropolis facing rooms are at a premium. Rooms are reasonable size - not so large as the Hilton, for example. Comfortable; however the walls are thin and noise travels at night. An inner door is provided to keep out corridor noise from the sleeping area. WiFi is quite expensive, as is the bar on the 6th floor.

Room Tip: Various types of 'Acropolis view'. Mine had the view, but you had to go on the balcony and l...

+Location is great near Kolonaki. My room had a FANTASTIC view!!! Breakfast was great, room was spacious and clean. Polite staff at the front desk and the housekeeping.Only stayed for two nights so did not use all amenities, but I would recommend for a city break.
- Expensive rate for the use of the wifi & the mini bar.

Look, this is neither a 5-star nor a boutique hotel. The rooms are at best average, they charge insane amounts of money for the food, their facilities are pathetic, their breakfast is barely acceptable - I could go on and on. Yes, it has great location but that's about it. This is barely a 3-star hotel masquerading as something much more. Save your money and go somewhere else.

It's one hell of a walk from the city. DIstance wise, not far, but expect the hard climb up the steep roads every evening especially if you are not terribly fit or after a big day of being on your feet.
Never stayed in a hotel where i couldnt control in climate control in my room. Just because the heaters in the hotel were on meant that I could not turn on the cool function in my room's aircond.
The rooftop restaurant had great views of the Acropolis. Food was average for a "5 star" hotel. I think this hotel is more worthy of a 3.5 at most 4 star rating.
Large beds were good but pillows were flat. I ended up with 6 pillows on my bed.

Four years ago, I spent a night at the hotel.. I was astonished by two distinct things. One was the scenery of the Acropolis and secondly by the relative very good standards of the hotel in general. Four years after that all said above is history except the Acropolis view. It's worth saying that the hotel charges enormous amounts of money -especially on food- just because of its location. The room did not feel clean and it seemed to me that some kind of renovation took place, not to enhance the quality of the rooms, but to take out valuable furniture and decorative objects of the rooms. Finally, some of the reception stuff are extremely rude. In general, pick another choice..

My wife and I began a three week European vacation at the St George. It could not have offered a better intro. The hospitality was wonderful. The rooms clean and spacious. The view over the city to the Acropolis was breathtaking at night and day. A great experience.
