Review Summary

  • Intimate spa
  • Small indoor pool

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.

Just off of Syntagma Square

Map of King George, A Luxury Collection Hotel

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.
