The 154-room Saint George Lycabettus Hotel sits on a winding uphill road that leads to Lycabettus Hill. Family-run since 1973, this understated upscale property, which is a two-minute walk from Kolonaki's shops, galleries, and restaurants, stands out for its panoramic views that extend beyond the Acropolis. It has several restaurants and bars on-site, a summer rooftop pool and bar, a full-service spa and fitness center, and an in-house art gallery. Most rooms have balconies, and come with Coco-Mat bed linens, minibars, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, and coffeemakers; some premium suites have fireplaces. While the hotel might be more subdued than its luxury competitors (some might call it dowdy), it has a traditional elegance. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout, but on-site parking comes with a fee.
