Wow! Nicest hotel I’ve ever visited in Europe. The room is huge and loaded with amenities. Shower is terrific. Service is fantastic. Rooftop restaurant has a spectacular view of the acropolis and all of Athens. Breakfast was wonderful. Location is right across from parliament.

The hotel was so amazing and beautiful, the bed is completely comfortable, and the staff is friendly. It worth every euro you spend on it. Very close to comercial areas, fancy restaurants and with a view to the acropolis from the rooftop restaurant.

Exceptional room with a view that was wonderful! The bed was so comfortable and the bedding was fabulous! The location is outstanding and close to everything we wanted to see and do! The breakfast was excellent and we sat out on the terrace with a fabulous view of the Acropolis-just a great experience!

The King George is, conveniently, right in the middle of everything - an oasis in a crazy city. This property, as well as it's sister Luxury Collection property, the Grande Bretagne, are the stars of Syntagma Square, located directly across from Parliament (where you can watch the synchronized changing of the guards). After long, hot days out exploring Athens, it was nice to sit in the luxurious surroundings of the hotel. As soon as we arrived, the staff whisked our bags off and the lovely Stella, at reception, was getting us set up with our room. The hotel's neoclassic architecture and gorgeous interior makes you feel like a European celebrity. While I am a fan of this style, this hotel could use with a bit of a touch up. We had a Deluxe Room with a cityview. We really loved looking out on the square and enjoying the liveliness of the music at night. The room was spacious, with a sumptuous marble bathroom. The only drawback was the awkward shower/tub combo. It was impossible to take a shower without getting into an awkward position to try and get under the shower head. Full housekeeping and turndown was available, which I really appreciated in this Covid era where so many hotels have cut back. There is a fitness center at this property, which, unusually, I didn't use, as miles of walking a day in the city was my cardio routine. Tudor Hall is the hotel's elegant restaurant, with a beautiful view of the Acropolis. We ate breakfast on the restaurant's veranda daily. They had plenty of well-prepared food options, both from a buffet and a menu. We were unable to get in for dinner, so they sent us next door to the Grand Bretagne. This gorgeous hotel's dining venue was absolutely lovely! It's easy to see why this property might be the best in Athens. The King George, disappointingly, didn't have a pool. While looking at the Marriott site, I saw the pool that belonged to the Penthouse Suite, thinking it was the hotel's pool. Boy was I wrong! lol If you want a pool, you'll have to stay at the Bretagne. And, no, they won't let you use the Bretagne pool if you're at the King George. I really had a lovely time at the King George. The staff were incredibly friendly and accommodating and the rooms are a peaceful retreat from city life. This is not one of my top Luxury Collection choices, but I would absolutely stay here again (I will probably choose the Grande Bretagne next time, though, as a comparison).

The King George was a lovely and lavish hotel! We were very happy with the location as it was walkable to all main attractions...steps away from Parliament and a quick walk to Plaka and the Acropolis. The service was also top knotch and we felt that all staff was genuine in their intentions for us to have a great stay. However, we booked a city-view room (with views of the acropolis) which ended up being on the 4th floor. What we did not realize, while booking, would be what a busy street we would be on! Cars and motorcycles are revving their engines, beeping, etc. all day and night...it was SUPER noisy (and we are from NYC, so that's saying a lot!). We found it very hard to relax and sleep in our room due to this which prevented us from having as lovely as a stay as we had hoped. Our advice - you will see the Acropolis from so many views in Athens (check out the restaurant at their sister property for an amazing view), no need to splurge to see it from your room...may be worth trying the garden view instead for a quieter and more relaxing experience!
