Haven't been to Greece in years but when I was last there I promised myself next trip I would stay at Grand Bretagne or King George. I made it ! This was a pre-cruise stay and we arrived via metro from the airport. You come up from the subway and ta-da its there on your right. Couldn't be easier. Check in was 4pm but we lucked out in that our room was ready about 15 minutes after check in. The room was nicely appointed, very nice bathroom and very good air con ... key given this hot summer. The staff was very helpful especially the doorman who provided a range for cab fares for wherever we were going ( I think it pissed off some drivers :). If you have a wait in the lobby for your tour or check in , please don't pass up the tea (cold) in the lobby it's excellent. I had breakfast in the hotel one day, it was ok ... overpriced for what I had, but to be expected. The location for this hotel is great, you can take a stroll up the block to see the changing of the guard in front of the parliament building or a short walk to the Plaka area for lite shopping and dining. There is a shared outdoor space with the Grand Bretagne but since I was only in for a few days I never got to enjoy it. Maybe next time,

Hotel's Favorite
This hotel defines excellence. From the moment I arrived for a week long trip in the incredible Athens, I felt at home. The gentleman who took my bags to the front desk team who were utmost lovely - referring to me by my name every time I entered and exited they genuinely cared about my day. Needless to say, I would return in a heart beat. My room was perfect, a reminder of a Greek version of the Ritz in Paris. Every time I entered the restaurant they also greeted me by my name. The staff also complimented my eyewear to my shoes upon entering, and this is a sign of great training. Then there was: the food. The cuisine at the restaurant left me speechless - from the view to the servers and their knowledge and event the sommelier, I returned twice. The breakfasts were also WOW. The view of the Acropolis did not hurt, either. The location of the property is perfect and I loved being able to use the Grand Bretagne facilities and amenities. I am crying that I must return to reality tomorrow. I hope this review helps you make the decision to book here. As I said, I look forward to my return to the King George.

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at the King George as our last stop in our vacation to Greece. The hotel was very nice - elegant and charming. We relied upon Amex Fine Hotels + Resorts to select a hotel - and it was a fantastic decision. First - the location... best in Athens. A short walk into town for drinks, dinner, shopping. And it was fun to be across from Parliament - to watch the changing of the guards. Also - a short drive to the Acropolis. Second - the restaurant was outstanding... great buffet breakfast and dinner was fantastically presented. And... to top it off: overlooking the Acropolis. Magnificent. Lastly - the staff. From the moment of check-in to all of the waiters and other team members, I was impressed with the service and attention. I want to specifically call-out a Bellman, Christos. He was wonderful! His attitude and respect is unmatched by anyone in the industry. Upon checking-out, my car service to the airport was late - but Christos stayed with my bags, assured me not to worry about the time, and kept personally running in and out of the hotel to check on the status. I was very appreciative. All in all - a great hotel in a great location.

Hotel is fantastic and the location, view and setting can't be compared. You can walk everywhere important including historic sites, shopping and the best restaurants. Hotel staff will help you with anything.

Location location location. I think you get it. Ideal spot for Athens and walking the streets. Amazing views of the Acropolis. Service was excellent. The only reason for 4 star, rooms were a little tight and we hate bath shower combos. So needs to be updated. Also, it is fairly noisy since hotel is next to a very busy street. So if sensitive to noise maybe the backside of the hotel is more quiet but not sure.

This was our first time in Athens and the King George was a perfect place to stay. It was a great location for getting to attractions. The staff provided outstanding service. The room was beautiful with super comfortable beds, nice bath and lovely amenities. We had fresh fruit everyday, turndown service in the evening, and they even welcomed us with fresh flowers and a small flask of whiskey. The front desk was very accommodating, the concierge was extremely helpful with information and breakfast was superb served on the top floor with views of the Acropolis.

We normally stay at the hotel GB (next door), we did stay there earlier on our trip, but the GB was full on our return dates. It was our first stay at King George, its a much smaller hotel, high quality, quiet, excellent service, I suggest bigger and brighter rooms. Rooftop breakfast is nice, housekeeping excellent. It's probably missing a bar area, you can head next door to the GB fr that though. We will return.

I recently stayed at the King George and while I liked the location and the room was "ok" the bath flooded each time I took a shower. I tried very carefully - even sitting while I showered but it didn't matter. Also, we decided to have a special dinner in the hotel restaurant. The prices were the highest we came across in Greece and while the food wasn't bad there was VERY little of it. I ordered an appetizer and entree (which came to 90 euro) and I got between 3 and 4 ounces of food - total. I am not a big eater but when my dining partner recommended I get another entree - I said I'd need to order two or three more. In my entire life, traveling around the world and coming from NYC I have never been served let food. Fortunately, there was a McDonalds (which I don't normally eat) down the street which kept me from going to bed starving.

I was here for 2 nights on business and was given a excellent room with a small balcony facing the front. Had a pleasant stay. Wonderful hotel and excellent staff. Perfect hotel for a quick stay in Athens. The view from the restaurant at breakfast is simple stunning, perfect way to start your day. While I didn’t get to enjoy the amenities as I was too busy with meetings, I was told guests can use the roof top pool and spa of the hotel grand Bretagne next door which is big plus.

Positives (+): Location, View, Beds, Free water, Lobby, Breakfast. Negatives (-): Tiny/cramped “Deluxe” room (despite AMEX FHC, Marriott Gold) - smallest on floor (5).
