Athens, Greater Athens, Attica

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Convenient location just off of Syntagma Square
  • Luxurious rooms are decorated with antique furniture, rich curtains, and plush bedding
  • Gourmet restaurant with views of the Acropolis, plus a sleek bar
  • Intimate spa
  • Small indoor pool
  • 3 glamorous meeting rooms and a business center
  • 24-hour concierge and room service
  • Free Wi-Fi

Cons

  • Fitness center is small with only a few machines
  • Some rooms have dated tube TVs

Bottom Line

The historic Classical King George Palace is one of the most luxurious and exclusive properties in Athens. Everything about this hotel is chic -- from the aviator-clad doormen to the gourmet restaurant with stunning views of the Acropolis. The Palace boasts every amenity one would expect from a luxury hotel -- but as a boutique, some are on a smaller scale: There is a small indoor pool, an intimate spa, three glamorous meeting rooms, and a tiny fitness center. The 102 rooms are elegant, with hardwood floors, antique furniture, rich, silky curtains, and plush bedding. The dated tube TVs in some rooms seem a bit out of place. For those who can afford it, the Royal Penthouse Suite is truly decadent, with two bedrooms, a massive terrace, and an infinity pool with unobstructed views of the Acropolis.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Just off of Syntagma Square

The King George Palace is just off of Syntagma Square, home to government buildings, grand hotels, and upscale shops and restaurants.

Athens is bustling but charming to some, and a touristy mess to others. The cradle of Western civilization is steeped in history in a way few capital cities are, featuring some of the most recognizable archaeological sites and ancient temples in the world -- but it also has fierce traffic and dirty sidewalks. The city underwent an urban renewal prior to the 2004 Olympics, which resulted in a less congested, more pedestrian-friendly city center. However, the 2008 economic crisis hit Athens hard. Syntagma Square, where Athens' Parliament building is located, has been the site of numerous protests, so tourists may want to steer clear in times of political instability.

  • Just off of Syntagma Square
  • 33-minute drive to Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport
  • 7-minute walk to the Athens City Museum
  • 11-minute walk to Hadrian's Arch
  • 15-minute walk to Ancient Agora
  • 17-minute walk to the National Gallery
  • 20-minute walk to the Acropolis
  • 25-minute walk, or 9-minute drive, to the National Archaeological Museum
