My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night stay at the St George Lycabettus in the uber trendy Kolonaki area however I am questioning if I received a totally 5 star experience (however in retrospect I didn't pay 5* prices!).
You must pay the extra for a city view as there is something quite magical about having a coffee on your own private balcony whilst gazing at the Acropolis, if you had an interior view overlooking a courtyard you would feel disappointed. The bedrooms were lovely with incredibly comfy beds and effective air conditioning. The bathroom was spacious with a funky multi nozzle shower and even came with a rather bizarre pair of dumbells under the sink. The staff were also incredibly helpful and were more than happy to store our baggage until our evening flight.
A couple of small negatives to point out though. The WiFi was only available in the Sky Bar and the rooms were only serviced by an expensive ASDL line. Breakfast was also offered at an exorbidant 30 euros per person! Also if you are not happy with climbing up hills you'll not be best pleased if wallking back from the monuments in the city.More
