We very much enjoyed our visit to such opulence. Moving by the fine foyer with its luxury and numerous art pieces, we made for the 7th floor and the grand Tudor Hall terrace. Arriving as sun descended below the horizon we were treated to stunning vistas of the Acropolis. I think some of the best we had seen in the city. A warm welcome by the gracious staff set the scene for a memorable occasion. We began with a couple of cocktails, relaxing and soaking up the wonderful surrounds. Dinner was delicious, having chosen from the imaginative menu of choices. With a chilled local white wine, followed by sweet offerings and coffee, all delightful.

Everything here was first rate. Above all the view of the Acropolis from the seventh story restaurant. Staff is superb. When we had to exit in crisis mode following the Europe Travel Proclamation, we had dedicated help figuring out what to do and how to get to the airport record time. We were sorry to have to leave so soon. Athens is beautiful, Greek people are wonderful, and we can’t wait to come back and have another wonderful stay at the King Goerge, in the heart of Athens. Evharistoume para poli!

The King George has a lot going for it: a great location in a very busy and touristy part of town, very kind and friendly staff, and a solid restaurant - if it is insanely over-priced. Beyond that, this property is severely lacking and should be renovated or removed from the Luxury Collection. You are far better off at a more moderately priced property or a newer one that truly does offer luxury. The value simply is not here and the property fails to deliver on expectations. I had booked two stays last month and used a few of my Suite Night Rewards from Marriott to ensure a nice room. Both experiences were major disappointments. In short, if slapping some marble in the bathroom and hanging a chandelier in the room constitute luxury to you then look no further. The first room setup was odd in that you went through the rather small bedroom area to reach the sitting room. Not such a big deal until we ordered room service and all kinds of re-shuffling of suitcases and re-arranging of furniture ensued. A pain in the neck for a few minutes, but not a major problem... at least until things started adding up. The food from room service arrived luke-warm and simply was not good (40 Euros for a burger should have included at least some seasoning in the meat). The toilet was mounted at least 3 inches too high - I'm 5' 11" and my toes just made contact with the floor when I sat down. The bath and shower were separate and while the tub was quite nice, it was dimly lit there was not much room to dry off in. The shower took 10-15 minutes to reach temperature, the stall was very small, there were no grab rails, the floor was slick, and there was nothing special about the shower head. The room advertised a king bed, but it was in fact a queen. The sofa sagged worse than the one I had in college. The desk is minute and the chair not conducive to any sort of work, so don't plan on a working vacation here. The hardwood floors in the room were quite worn in many places, the paint dirty along the lower portions of every wall, and the single window in the suite opened onto a concrete courtyard with an air conditioner base which ran constantly. The second suite wasn't much better. The layout was reasonable - entry into a small foyer, the bedroom to the right and sitting area to the left. But again, it needed maintenance in a big way - the wall in the sitting area had split plaster with major water stains, the wall paper in the bath was peeling, the floor was worn. The tub/shower combination was poor - hand-held shower in a tub that did not drain well. Again, a queen size bed when we were expecting a king. As with the first room, don't plan on getting any work done - the desk is miserable. We were also a bit troubled by housekeeping staff who would knock as they were entering the room. Once is understandable, but every time for servicing the mini-bar, turn down service, cleaning the room, etc was annoying and rude - please give time to answer the door (and we didn't want to hang out the do-not-disturb sign as we did want the room cleaned, the mini-bar re-stocked, etc...). Lastly, our stays were a week apart, during which time there was only one small elevator in service (4 people max). Wait times could be frustrating.

One of the best hotels we stayed during our holidays so far; the location is fabulous with easy access to historic sites, the hop on hop off, restaurants and shopping. The hotel has an old charm with all modern amenities & kept extremely clean. This is definitely the best hotel in Athens to watch fireworks on the New Year’s Eve. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They always surprised with small knick knacks every day of our stay.
