Amy Adejokun Section editor

Open since the 30s, the King George proudly sports the "Luxury Collection Hotel" label. This elegant establishment enjoys an exceptional location in the Plaka area. Unfortunately, it does not have much to offer in terms of facilities, but it is comfortable nevertheless. The hotel decor gives pride of place to various tones of beige which blend perfectly with the wooden furniture. The King George carries out regular renovations in order to keep the hotel at its best. The latest renovation work took place in 2013.

    Location 7.27 /10

    Located less than a mile from the Acropolis, the hotel is well situated in the Plaka area, at the heart of Athens. The airport is a good 35-minutes away by car.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The hotel has 102 guest rooms, but nonetheless offers seven categories: Classic Room, Deluxe Room, Junior Suite, Deluxe Suite, Grand Suite, Executive Grand Suite and Penthouse Suite. In all, 63 guest rooms and 39 suites. Several views are available: in general, the rooms overlook the city or the Acropolis, but the best view is the one overlooking the Pantheon. However, only guests staying in the Penthouse Suite have the pleasure of enjoying this magnificent view, which they can do from the comfort of their private swimming pool. Although the other guest rooms do not have their own pool, they are comfortable nonetheless. All of the rooms feature a parquet floor. The bathrooms are not very big, but they are entirely decorated in marble. The shower is in the bathtub, with a large wash basin just next to it and the toilet. Unfortunately the toilets are not separate. In terms of amenities, all the basics are there: air-conditioning, room service, television, etc.

    Overview 8.15 /10

    The King George is a fine hotel. The period furniture goes perfectly with the neutral yet chic decoration. Even though the lobby gleams thanks to the marble, there is still an impression of emptiness in the hotel. The reception area is vast but you're unlikely to come across many people. It is less bustling than the entrance hall at the Grande Bretagne Hotel, although guests at the King George can use the facilities at the former. Sports enthusiasts will be pleased to hear that the hotel has a gym, while businessmen can take advantage of the business centre.

    Food and drink 9.20 /10

    The main restaurant at the King George, The Tudor Hall, is located on the 7th floor of the building, and affords a superb view of the Pantheon. The latter also matches the neo-classical decor of the restaurant. The service is very good. Guests can enjoy mostly Mediterranean cuisine, and the tables are set far enough away from one another to respect the privacy of each customer. The comfortable furniture is another of the restaurant's qualities.

    To know

    Although the hotel does not have many facilities, it does offer guests the possibility of using all of the services at the Grande Bretagne Hotel.

      The Stanley hotel is located on Karaiskaki Square, a few feet from the subway station bearing the same name. But do not expect great luxury. The air conditioning does not work very well and the windows fail to filter the incessant noise of the town, both day and night.

      The Plaka hotel offers excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and the decoration is modest. But you can especially take advantage of being literally at the gates of the beautiful district of Plaka with its army of small restaurants and busy streets open late at night, at the foot of the Acropolis. Finally, the luxury!

      The Electra Palace Athens is a pleasant hotel with charm. It is one of the best hotels in the Greek capital. The facilities are comfortable and the service level is very respectable. Its greatest attraction is its view over the Acropolis, under a mile's walk away. Its location in the Plaka district is also an asset - the moment you step outside of the hotel you are instantly immersed in the Greek atmosphere of the city.

      The NJV Athens Plaza is a comfortable hotel with a certain charm. Its facilities are well laid out and decorated, even though the standard guest rooms aren't to everyone's taste. Its lack of facilities is compensated by its agreement with a nearby club. Clearly the location at the heart of Athens is one of its main assets.

      Like many of the establishments in the Hilton hotel group, the Hilton Athens is very much focused on business clients. Although the hotel is not as well located compared to its competition, it has other cards up its sleeve. Its numerous facilities allow guests the choice of a whole host of activities. The main building's architecture is not particularly appealing from the outside but it contains a wealth of surprises inside.

      Open since the 1960s, the Arion Resort & Spa is named after the legendary poet. Its infrastructures were updated by architect Manolis Vourekas five years after its opening. At the time, it welcomed many famous guests, such as Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis and Tony Blair. In 2004, the P. Masourides Company architecture firm and the Hirsch Bedner Associates interior design company carried out some major renovations. Their goal was to retain the establishment's classic style all while adding a touch of modernity. After it was re-opened in 2006, the Arion was welcomed into the Starwood Luxury Collection family. Today it belongs to the huge Astir Palace complex, like the Westin Athens and, in 2016, the W. The grounds extend over 74 acres on a private peninsula.

      The Divani Palace Acropolis is one of the establishments in Athens that offers a high level of comfort. The hotel is charming and well set out, but it lacks personality. However, it is still a great base from which to visit the Greek capital thanks to its good location within the city. The guest rooms are comfortable but lack personality. On the other hand, the summer restaurant is a real asset: installed on the roof, it offers breathtaking views of the Acropolis.
