Lovely hotel, excellent location and great staff. Hotel has been fully refurbished and is immaculate. Everything about the place is great. The restaurant with the terrace is lovely and the staff are very attentive when required. Excellent food and ambiance. You have full access to the spa at the grand hotel next door which is well worth taking up. A great place to stay and exceptional value for money.

Just returned and they have just remolded the hotel and it is beautiful. Staff is very helpful. The only complaints are the cooling was not working great. There is free wifi in the lobby but not in the rooms. But the worst was that because we had a early fight which was checking out at 6:15 AM and there was no coffee around the breakfast area did not open till 6:30 AM. I need my coffee with being on the road for the next upcoming 24 hours.

This SPG property is right next door to the Grande Bretagne. Literally. I have stayed at both and both are quite nice. The King George has a great restaurant on the roof, with superb views of the Acropolis, at night and during the day. The rooms are very much boutique like, and are quite old, elegant and nicely decorated. Definitely not a modern floor plan, but still worth a stay.

The location is second to none, with views of parliament, Syntagma square as well as an easy walk to any location downtown, including Plaka, shopping, and of course the Acropolis and other ruins nearby.

Staff are friendly and helpful, upgrades and welcome amenities were great, and I would not hesitate to stay at this property again.

This hotel is located in the strategic center of Athens, warm, sumptuous bedroom with adjoining sitting room, bathroom with marble shower and tub, air conditioning lighting equipment, perfect and complete. A breakfast on the terrace overlooking the Acropolis is unforgettable with its beautiful views. The restaurant is also beautiful at night, and the food is very good. The hotel is much less crowded than its adjoining competitor and therefore offers an intimate and incomparable charm. An excellent hotel, you can find affordable prices even in summer, ideal location in Syntagma Square. A real 5 star hotel.
