King George, A Luxury Collection Hotel

Reviewed 19 July 2017 via mobile

The exact hotel we expected to be staying in. The King George was a beautiful old hotel , it had stunning views of the Acropolis from the dining room. We were up graded up to a suite and it was amazing. The suite was almost three rooms, we couldn't have wanted anymore space. When we were there the weather was a bit on the HOT side, 111" so all the windows were closed and taking pictures was somewhat inhibited. Also the air conditioning was not working all that well as we would have liked because of the heat. They gave us a fan and everything was fine. It was a fabulous hotel!!!! I would recommend it.

The minute you walk into the King George you know it's going to be a pleasant experience.
Doormen are very friendly and helpful as are the front desk staff.
Coming from the US, we needed a room in the morning and Kleopatra did everything she could to get us into our room as soon as one came available.
The rooms are small so if you can, try to upgrade to a larger room or suite. We did that on our way back through Athens.
The breakfast is a feast, the staff so nice and attentive. You couldn't ask for better service and they should all be commended for that.
Location great..
Definite stay here when visiting Athens

King George is a wonderful property in the heart of Athens. All tourist locations are close by. The Acropolis is a 20-minute walk. There are also lovely cafes and restaurants located nearby besides boutiques and shopping.

We were upgraded to a suite which was a bonus. The swimming pool is located in the sister hotel - Grand Bretange - next door and is a lovely place. The pedicurist at the hotel was excellent and good value for money.

What a beautiful hotel! We stayed 4 nights and everything was excellent. The rooms are beautiful, they accommodated our request to have adjoining rooms with our children, and the service is impeccable. The breakfast is one of the best we’ve ever had while traveling abroad – beautiful buffet of hot and cold foods plus a full menu, all served with a show-stopping view of the Acropolis. The hotel was conveniently located in the Syntagma district on the same square as the parliament building where the changing of guard takes place. Plenty of shopping and restaurants (mostly touristy) around though we were able to walk to several great restaurants recommended by the concierge. The KG doesn’t have its own pool and the fitness room is very small, but guests may use the pool, spa, and fitness facilities at the adjacent sister hotel.

This was our second stay, this time we traveled with our children and had 2 connecting rooms which were perfect. Very clean, quiet, and luxurious. I never have allergy problems here since they have wood floors and not carpet. The location is really convenient to all of the walking areas and historical sights. The staff is always very helpful with any questions, and the Bellman have, both stays, come right to our taxi driver to make sure we were getting charged the appropriate rate, which is fixed to and from the airport.
