I will start by simply classing Hotel King George, Luxury Collection Hotel by Starwood, as The Best Hotel in Athens. The proof is all here, in Tripadvisor reviews. It is probably as close to a perfect city hotel as one possibly could get. The hotel is situated bang in the heart of Athens, very close to all important sites in...

I really enjoyed my stay at King George. The location was central to everything. I took the metro to most areas that I wanted to visit. The hotel is very luxurious and my room (suite) was quite spacious and comfortable. Because of my SPG Platinum status, I was able to receive free breakfast every morning. While I wish they would...

I cannot say enough about this hotel. Let me get the one and only bad thing about this hotel out of the way first: because it's situated between 2 other buildings, the only rooms with views face the square and they are premium-priced. Other than that, I have to commend Sofia and her colleague whose bame i cant remember but...

The hotel is beautifully historic, close to the Parlament and all sightseeing in Athens. As a matter, fact breakfast terrace gives you a breath-taken-view of Acropolis. The breakfast buffet is very fresh and very customer driven, every time I requested a special thing for breakfast I was encountered with very friendly staff who were ready to make my food dreams...

I stay at this hotel relatively frequently (more than 20 nights per year for the past couple of years). It's fine, but you really need to set expectations lower than "Luxury Collection". The rooms are dated, and particularly the bathrooms are badly in need of a renovation (the showers in particular are like something from another era). It's annoying that...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
