“Great view from the top”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

This hotel is under new management and newly renovated after a very checked history. The new management has done a great job at making this one of the best hotels in all of Athens. The restaurant at the top has an amazing view of The Acropolis and the parliament building so if you are up there on the hour you can see the changing of the guard. The room I had was great very comfortable and somebody escorted me to my room to explain to me all of the services located in the room which was very helpful.

Room Tip: If you want to pay extra for a view room go ahead but I'd just save some money and spend your ti...

We had top service in all departments. All the staff were excellent, the restaurant for breakfast was excellent together with the waiting staff. Would highly recommend this hotel. It's direct to city center and this is a big plus also. Beautiful rooms, spacious and very comfortable.

Our stay of two nights was as wonderful and memorable. Ending our 12 night cruise at King George was the best ever. Magnificent views of the Acropolis from the restaurant at night was a not to be forgotten experience. The staff, room, location , and newly remodeled lobby were the best. Very accommodating and cheerful staff. Restaurant food and ambiance were killers. Upgrades appreciated. Management and Starwood are the best!

We stayed here 4 nights at the beginning of September and we loved it! The location (there weren't any protests or riots while we were there-thank god), service, room, rooftop restaurant for breakfast and supper were amazing! The only 2 minor setbacks, that didn't affect my overall experience at all, were the 2 single beds stuck together (we were on our honeymoon and you don't expect this at a 5 star) and the set up of the shower made a lot of water spill onto the bathroom floor. We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it.

The King George has recently re-opened after an extensive renovation. And what a great job they have done!
We were travelling as a family of four with our grown up children, and they gave us two interconnecting suites! We almost did'nt want to leave the hotel at all!!
The staff was excellent, including everyone we met right from our check-in till we left.
The rooms were beautiful. Marble inlaid bathrooms excellent. Mood lighting and silent hidden air conditioning an excellent touch. Beds and furnishings top notch.
The location was ideal. Walking distance from museums and attractions. The top floor restaurant offered a great view of the Acropolis.
The breakfast buffet was well laid out and generous. Service was exemplary.
One of my best hotel stays. We were treated like royalty and we enjoyed every moment. King George would have been envious!

Room Tip: The corner suites are roomy and beautiful.

I never write reviews, but I thought I should write one on this fantastic hotel. What separates this hotel from others is the helpful and caring staff. The hotel is perfectly located and has all the great amenities any hotel in its class would. We thought the check in was smooth and the customer service was superb. We were upgraded and the guy that checked us in, Josef, actually walked us to our room.
I ended up having a pretty terrible day and needed to go to the hospital. I was pretty ill and the hotel staff called an ambulance and sent someone on their staff to go with me and my husband to the hospital. I never got his name, but he was extremely supportive and helpful and kept my worried husband company. When we finally got back from the hospital, the very concerned staff sent up fruits, desserts, and endless bottles of water free of charge. I am thankful I was in this hotel when it happened because I could not have been in better hands.

We were welcomed graciously and enjoyed excellent service from the moment we arrived. They treated us to an upgraded room, and we were in heaven after seeing the gorgeous remodeled rooms. My boyfriend and I were stoked to see the Moulton Brown products, and we greatly enjoyed the incredible Acropolis view from the Tudor restaurant (and the wonderful serving staff). Should our travels bring us back to Athens, we will certainly be staying at the King George.
