Beautiful hotel, very centrally located. We were upgraded to a suite and also had complimentary breakfast and what a lavish offering! Our last morning we had to leave too early to enjoy the buffet but the staff prepared a boxed breakfast for each of us with so many goodies we were amazed. Thank you so much, staff of King George....

Talk about misleading. We specifically booked this hotel because the Grande Bretagne next door was booked, and we wanted the rooftop pool. I was assured I would have access to their "sibling" property. I didn't. I was told they were "too busy" to allow people from next door. So we were only allowed in the spa. Also, we went to...

Der Guest, Thank you for taking the time to write your feedback after recently staying at the King George Hotel. We were sorry to read about the inconvenience you experienced, however, access to the outdoor pool of the Hotel Grande Bretagne is not allowed, only to the indoor pool of the GB Spa area. We apologize for the misunderstanding and...

We stayed one night in Athens on our way to Santorini. We opted for the yellow Mercedes transfer arranged by the hotel for transport between the airport and the hotel. The transfers were efficient and friendly. It cost 108€ for a return trip. This was arranged as a room charge. I have to applaud Evalia at the front desk for...

Central location made it easy to get around. Attentive staff at front desk. Very quiet and had super comfortable beds. However, free wi-fi was only available in the main foyer and restaurant. Considering the cost of the room this should have been freely available.

We came for my husbands birthday before going off to the Islands and the staff was very warm and welcoming.

This was a nice spacious room. We had a balcony that faced the city square. However, it was incredibly noisy. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. The shower needed some cleaning but they offered nice soaps. The people were very friendly and helpful. Overall I would probably stay here again but I'd ask for a different room.

If it's boutique, it's for me! Very nice hotel in the parliament district and only a 10 min walk to plaka. Hotel is fairly new. You get the same amenities of the adjacent hotel, Bretagne, which is sister hotel/same owner. Our room was small and didn't have a view, but it was clean and updated which we appreciated.

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.
