But overall, I found the location to lack much personality. The staff was very nice and the room had a beautiful view of the Acropolis. We had lunch at the restaurant and the food was delicious, but the summer heat made the restaurant about 90 degrees. I was pleased with our stay there, but I would stay somewhere else next time with a more interesting atmosphere.

We stayed 3 nights at the King George and had a perfect experience. The staff were ALL FABULOUS. The room was quiet and comfortable. We choose an atrium view, as we have found that street views can be noisy. I can't say if that is true for this hotel. After staying there, next time we will try the view, as it is probably quiet. The bed was very comfortable. I realize that I sound repetitive, but honestly, it was comfortable, comfortable, comfortable. The breakfast was exceptional. We ate in restaurant for dinner, and had room service for desert and it was also exceptional. The location is perfect. Anything they don't have on site, will be right next door in their sister hotel. By this, we needed an ATM, and they had one next door so we didn't have to use one on the street. This was one of the friendliest hotels we have stayed at, and I would recommend it to anyone.

We couldn't have been happier to stay at the King George, Athens . Quietly elegant lobby and speedy check-in. We had asked for a view room, and we got it. A great view overlooking the square below, and the Acropolis in the distance.
The room was spacious and elegant. Everything well appointed and luxury.
The nice thing about staying at the King George ( which is directly adjacent to the Grand Bretagne) is that we could partake of the Grand Bretagne hotel, bar, restaurants etc. Naturally,we headed up to the fabulous rooftop terrace bar and stayed through an absolutely gorgeous sunset
( with views of the lighted Acropolis ). Such nice service both at cocktail hour, dinner and at breakfast the next morning. Loved everything, would definitely go back.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for higher level room , above floor 5, with view of Acropolis .

What a wonderful, friendly hotel with marvellous staff. Room service a little slow, but done with such charm that anything could be forgiven. The room was delightful, with a view of the Acropolis and the food in the seventh-floor restaurant exceedingly good. Who would have thought of fennel as a dessert. They also have a group of excellent cab drivers who know their stuff and are prepared to take one anywhere. We are definitely going back! Went for a complimentary drink in the next-door Grande Bretagne while our room was prepared (we had arrived before check-in time) and were very pleased that we had not opted for that. While 'the place to go' it really wasn't nearly as attractive as its sister hotel.

In June we took our first cruise and began in Athens. The night before we embarked on our cruise we stayed at the King George. We made the reservations through AmEx Fine Hotels and Resorts. The room was well appointed, very clean and large by European Standards. Bedding was luxurious and mattresses were very comfortable.
The staff was friendly and very helpful. The location of the hotel is perfect. It is in the heart of Athens across the street from Parliament and adjacent to all varieties of shopping and tourist destinations. The Acropolis was about a 20 minute walk from the hotel.
The breakfast served in the top floor restaurant which overlooks the Acropolis was outstanding and offered an unending selection of fresh fruits, pastries, breads, meats and eggs.
But the real test of ultimate service came when I arrived at the ship in the Port of Athens and realized I had left my suit coat in a closet in our hotel room.
I called the concierge at the hotel and asked if they could check the room for my coat and if it was found send it to the ship. They found the coat sent it by taxi to the ship and got it to my cabin in time. Now that is service above and beyond.
I highly recommend the King George.

Nice hotel, great location, good accommodations, wonderful breakfast....BUT:
We were "upgraded" to a room with a balcony overlooking the square. Unfortunately, there was a rock concert being held there which went on to almost 1 AM. The pounding drums and bass shook our room. The main function of a hotel is to be able to rest and sleep, which was impossible that night.
