King George Hotel Athens

Overlooking Syntagma Square, the heritage King George Hotel is situated right in the heart of constitutional Athens. Dating back to 1930, it has long been famous for its immaculate service and fantastic destination seconds from Athens’ fabled historical gems.

Comprised of 102 rooms and suites, the Penthouse Suite with a private outdoor pool, King George accommodates its guests in spacious, high-ceilinged interiors and en suite bathrooms lined with pale marble.

Breakfast is a sumptuous affair with a buffet featuring Greek specialties, eggs à la carte, and continental favorites served at the acclaimed Tudor Hall restaurant. Return later for something different when chef Alexandros Koskinas serves up a regional Greek menu amidst unrivaled views and floral displays.

King George is ideally located to explore mythical Athens and its landmarks including the Parthenon, Acropolis Hill, and the Ancient Agora. The hotel’s fully-equipped basement fitness center is perfect for some evening rejuvenation after a busy day.

Why we recommend King George Hotel

This former royal residence is something of an Athenian Grande Dame offering a royal experience against glittering chandeliers and objets d’art. There’s all the full-blown amenities you’d expect and a distinctly Greek touch which really adds to the experience. From the 7th floor Tudor Hall Restaurant and the Penthouse Suite, the hotel boasts supreme views of the Acropolis, and I think reaches its most beautiful at dusk when the sun sets over the skyline and the citadel is illuminated.
