A former royal residence with all the bells and whistles you’d expect of an Athenian Grande Dame, the King George is where everyone who is someone stays when in the Greek capital.

It’s a portal to lavish times when Marilyn Monroe and Grace Kelly defined what travelling in style truly meant. They both stayed here, as did Frank Sinatra, Aristotle Onassis and a host of other celebrities. At the King George hotel in Athens, a royal experience awaits guests in what used to be a palace residence and it’s dressed for the part with its regal furnishings, glittering chandeliers and priceless objets d’art throughout. The hotel is also undisputedly Greek, evocative in its neoclassical style...not that you’ll need a reminder with landmarks like the National Gardens and the parliament building just outside. From the 7th floor Tudor Hall Restaurant and the Penthouse Suite, the hotel affords supreme views of the Acropolis, most beautiful at dusk when the sun sets over the Athenian skyline and the citadel is illuminated.

    We had a wonderful experience with the King George and would stay there again if our travels bring us back to Athens. The staff were wonderful and our accommodations exceeded our expectations. We were celebrating our honeymoon, and the manager made sure to help us start our honeymoon off on a wonderful note with a bottle of champagne, strawberries, and a liqueur with chocolates. Very nice touches. And the upgraded room with a view as also very much appreciated.

    Great hotel by Greek standards - way more refined and non commercial/touristy than other hotels in the area. Reception area is very nice but the lobby to the left feels a little bare - needs some more character with respect to decoration. Reception staff are excellent. Room service staff also excellent. I had a prawn salad for a late dinner which was very nice and my room (202K) had an excellent view.

    The staff at the front desk were the most kind, helpful, friendly and professional! The upgrades we received were very generous as well. It was an exceptional stay and if i will ever return to Athens, i will stay again at the King Georges.

    This was my second stay at the King George, the first being as a student in 1960 (when presumably it was a lot less expensive). I was delighted to see that the ambiance I remembered had been maintained. If I get back to Athens again I will clearly stay there again.

    We really enjoyed our short stay at the KIng George. From the reception to the baggage porter and the door man, all were very efficient, and always with a smile !! What a great experience it was.

    It’s too bad that the swimming pool is in another hotel, but nevertheless, I highly recommend this hotel. The view from the bar’s terrace is great and the dinner and breakfast menus are extraordinary! Hard to beat.
