I had the pleasure of staying twice in February for a total of six nights. I can't emphasize enough the level of attention and service that was accorded me. From the moment I arrived, Stella, at the Front Desk, made me feel welcome and effectively handled my complicated series of reservations with aplomb. During the period of my stays, all staff greeted me by name, and treated me extremely well. Every request met or exceeded my expectations, whether it was Kostas or Vangelis at Tudor Hall or Iliana, Kleopatra or Diouysia at the Front Desk, everyone worked to ensure my satisfaction and comfort. I never had to touch my luggage, thanks to Stelios and Christos. I was ensconced in three different suite configurations, all were fabulous, two having direct views of the Acropolis from their balconies overlooking Syntagma Square. I couldn't have been more coddled. I was fortunate enough to dine at Tudor Hall every morning at breakfast and had dinner there twice. The F&B from this Michelin star venue was stellar and presented in a creative manner. Savoring a delicious cocktail in the evening from a table with a view to the Acropolis was always a treat. It just doesn't get any better. I can't wait to return.

Fantastic hotel in Athens city center Beautiful lobby with marble floors and beautiful artwork greet you. Staff were friendly and efficient The room was comfortable clean and well appointed. Its location is across the street from Stygma square and the Parliment building, allowing you to walk to see the changing of the guards during the day or at night. you can also catch a hop on hop off bus across the street when you first arrive which will allow you to get your bearings and then you can walk to most attractions. The King George Hotel rooftop restaurant has excellent food and service and a breathtaking view of the Parthenon at dayand when lit up at night

Absolutely gorgeous and high level hotel. Personnel is friendly and helpful. Location is exactly what you need if you don’t want to rent a car. Everything in walkable distance. The review is for 2 lovely girls, Emily and Sofia. My daughter and I had breakfast included with our stay.We enjoyed it very much each morning. Besides the great kitchen (our compliments to chef) and beautiful view on Acropolis, Sofia and Emily made our morning run pleasant and smoothly. All our requests were attended fast and professionally. Thank you for your good mood and smiles. Hope to see you soon!

We stayed in the Junior Suite and it was perfect. This was the best hotel stay I have ever had. Everything was impeccable. The room, housekeeping, food, staff, views…everything! They really pampered us here. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and we had a great view of the Acropolis. The younger girl that was our waitress the two mornings we were there was so sweet and accommodating. The hotel is within walking distance of everything you need. There are some great restaurants nearby as well. Stay here! You won’t be disappointed.

We recently visit the King George Hotel, and our experience was amazing, the service was excellent and the rooms are great. My wife is pregnant and we wanted to do a sex reveal on her birthday dinner at the Tudor Hall and the Hotel and restaurant staff prepared us a white cake as a dessert and the gender color inside, it was blue 👶🏻. We do not have words to express our gratitude.

We stayed at the King George for a celebratory trip last month and it delivered: clean and comfortable rooms, high quality furnishings, safe and central location. Each morning, we’re excited to go to breakfast - varied options on the menu and buffet, unobstructed views of the Acropolis, top-notch service. Access to the indoor pool and spa at Hotel Grande Bretagne next door was a welcome amenity after a day of sightseeing. What really sets the hotel apart is the hospitality. Staff is helpful and welcoming, especially Katholiki and the breakfast crew, Stavros and the rest of the front desk team and our housekeeper lady (8th floor; didn’t get her name). We sent a note to the hotel manager about our wonderful experience and felt we would be remiss if we didn’t share it with a broader audience as well. Highly recommended.

The King George Hotel was our first introduction to Athens and it certainly did not disappoint. Upon arrival the front desk staff proved to be exceptionally cordial, spoke English very well, and offered us the opportunity to freshen up as we had just arrived after 16+ hours in transit. Throughout our stay, every member of the staff that we interacted with, from housekeeping to porters to doormen, were always welcoming and friendly. The hotel is close to all major attractions, and offers an abundance of amenities. While we did not dine at Tudor Hall, we do wish we had. The one star deduction is due to nothing within the hotel’s control, but it should be noted that the square directly across from the hotel remained active with music/street performers until midnight most evenings. If you book a city view room, be prepared to hear it. While the noise did not disturb us (jet lag and miles of walking really help with sleep), I can see it impacting those who may be looking for more of a rest/relaxation experience in Athens.

This was the first stop on our honeymoon and it set the BEST tone and standard for the rest of the trip. The location put us in walking distance to everything we wanted to do/see in the city, including luxury shopping, great local dining spots, and of course the Acropolis. The rooms were exceptional and comfortable and the service was impeccable. Tudor Hall, the restaurant inside the hotel, was fabulous, from the complementary breakfast—which filled us up until dinner time even with all the walking—to the elegantly prepared and presented dinner options. The wait staff was AMAZING!! Made our first impression in Greece the very BEST! Thanks to all! WE LOVE KING GEORGE!

We had a wonderful stay at the King George. A perfect location and within walking distance to all of the major sites. The front desk staff was excellent. We had the breakfast buffet breakfast each morning and it was amazing and with a fantastic view. The staff that worked in the restaurant during breakfast was extremely friendly and very attentive. We would definitely stay there again.

From the moment we entered the hotel, we were not satisfied with anything, including the welcome. The receptionist woman who took care of us at the entrance treated us very badly. I go to many countries for my job, but I have never seen a staff member with such ego and respect problems. The staff was very arrogant, their service was very bad. There wasn't even an ear swab in the room. Except for only one male waiter and 1-2 people who helped us with our wine selection, the others were very arrogant. They did poor maintenance. I will never choose this hotel again. I do not recommend.
