Everything about the King George Hotel, from the luxe linens to the soaking tubs, invites you to recline, relax, and make yourself at home in Athens.
With 102 rooms, this centrally-located hotel is not immediately what you might think of as “boutique.” However, in the heart of Syntagma Square with all of Athens swirling around you, the coziness and charm of the King George Hotel are what lend to its distinction.
The refined décor in each room follows a palette of soothing earth tones and rich hues. Clean, handsome lines and neoclassical touches recall the hotel’s history, which dates back to 1930.
Each room features the comforts and amenities guests expect from the stellar reputation of the Luxury Collection, including free wireless Internet, turndown service, and a minibar. In addition, each en suite bathroom has a deep soaking tub so that guests can enjoy the ultimate relaxation at the end of the day.
The Penthouse Suite offers another exclusive amenity: one of the best views of the Acropolis from downtown Athens. It’s a view best enjoyed from the Penthouse’s private outdoor pool. The Penthouse is the former residence of the hotel’s namesake, King George of Greece.
The hotel’s restaurant, Tudor Hall, references another European royal. In this classically-appointed eatery, guests will enjoy a modern take on classic Greek dishes, as well as views of the Parthenon.
Guests of the hotel can use the spa at the adjacent Grand Bretagne, which features a full menu of sumptuous experiences. At the King George Hotel, you can polish off your spa pampering by ducking into the perfumery on the ground floor, one of the most posh scent shops in Athens.
For those looking to maintain a fitness regimen, the hotel’s fitness studio is fully stocked with cardio and weight-training equipment. The hotel is in the ideal location to explore Athens by foot, and your Ker & Downey guide will be at your beck and call throughout your journey. However, should inspiration strike on a moment’s notice, the King George Hotel does provide a car service throughout the city.Request Information
