King George Hotel

King George Hotel



At the lavish King George Hotel, you will get to experience the life of a Greek king (or queen). One of the intriguing details of this destination is its antithesis to the surrounding environment. The hustle and bustle of the metropolis nearby completely contrast the calmness and Zen in this luxury hotel.

Overview

The property sits right on Syntagma Square — the historical and commercial heart of Athens, Greece. Thus, making the location a stone's throw away from major city landmarks. Besides, around a counter lies Voukourestiou — the city’s most exclusive shopping street. Additionally, a metro shop close to Syntagma Square leads you straight to the airport. 

Athens’ bustling streets below the square are packed with bars and restaurants. These include Nolan that serves up Greek-Japanese cuisine, and Birdman, where you can enjoy yakitori and Negronis. What's more, the famous Plaka district, Monastiraki, and Ancient Agora are a stone's throw away from the hotel. Besides, there are also must-see museums and galleries at The National Gardens. 

The Acropolis and Parthenon are a 20-minute walk away, and Kolonaki’s designer boutiques are just around the corner. Pretty much most of the city’s spots are within walking distance, so you will not be out of places to explore. 

Appeal

The King George Hotel, being one of Athens' 1930 grande dame properties, has undergone extensive renovations but has not lost its Old World glamour. Before stepping into the hotel, the streets and pathways will put you in awe. Expect to meddle in a warm and golden glows from side to side. 

Moreover, on entering the lobby, the grandeur will speak for itself. Everything here screams simple sophistication, from the patterned gold and white marble floors and enchanting columns to the antique furnishings. 

Murano glass chandeliers are both in the lobby and restaurants, with a view of the Acropolis emitting classic elegance. Furthermore, there are assortments of Renaissance paintings and murals of different celebrities — David Bowie. 

Nautical prints and vintage maps also adorn the corridors — all bound by stuff drapes, brocade, and velvet. Besides, many famous stars like Marilyn Monroe, Frank Sinatra, and Madonna have graced these floors. 

Rooms and Suites

The 102 rooms and suites at King George Hotel are nothing short of outstanding. These grand, pristine spaces are furnished with herringbone wood floors and stenciled ceilings. There is also a mahogany desk, sitting area, and lampshades bolstered by gilded swans. French antiques and Art Nouveau accents also decorate the expanse and walls of the room. 

Moreover, white moldings bear a relatively neutral color palette with accents of gold, blue, red, or brown. Besides, the lush bed with suede or crested headboards, dressed in Frette bed linen under the chandeliers or backlighting, make napping a necessity.

The rooms and suites each offer different features of the outside world. Some have views of the Acropolis or Syntagma Square, others face an inner atrium, and the rest having balconies that overlook the courtyard. Moreover, the larger suites possess an extra bathroom, exquisitely furnished living rooms, and a private pool with an Acropolis view. 

Upon arriving at your room, treats like chocolate and almost liquor will await you. Also present is a minibar and Nespresso machines. Besides, there is a satellite flat-screen TV for maximum entertainment. Phones and iPads are available too, in case you need to call on the hotel staff. 

Lastly, the pale, all-marble bathrooms contain amenities like a shower-tub combo, separate deep bathtubs, or rainfall showers. The hotel also supplies slippers, robes, hairdryers, and Olivia toiletries. 

Dining

Over at King George Hotel’s restaurant, the Tudor Hall, you will get the best Greek cuisine. Breakfast is in a massive buffet featuring Greek specialties and a menu for the continental crowd. Besides, the restaurant serves dinner with a rather fancy approach. It features stunning seventh-floor views of the Parthenon, the Parliament, and the National Gardens.

The restaurant and bar’s glass-wrapped terrace have views of the skyline, with a romantic atmosphere that exudes at night. Moreover, a fireplace and a grand piano are at the restaurant for warming up on a cold evening or soothing entertainment while you dine.

After dinner, specialty cocktails and fine Greek wines beckon you to taste at the bar. Besides, the authenticity of the meals and drinks are second to none. Chef Alexandros Koskinas and his team of eligible cooks received a Toque d’Or award for his innovative and tasteful dinners. The hotel also received an award for serving Greek cuisine.

Fitness

As part of the Marriott Luxury Collection, the resort has the amenities expected of a luxury hotel. What's more, the vibe here is unquestionably Greek. The spectacular basement spa is equipped with treadmills, elliptical machines, and bicycles. There is also a Finnish sauna available to relax and unwind. 

Other Amenities

The King George Hotel offers many more amenities than what you might expect at an ordinary lodging house. The hotel has a private outdoor pool overlooking the city below and a spa. Furthermore, a gift shop, beauty parlor, and florist are there as well. 

The property also houses a 24-hour business center, two meeting rooms, a kids club, and a 400 person-capacity ballroom. The ever-attentive concierge can also set up theatre reservations, private museum tours, and personal shopping excursions.

Aside from this, there are places around the hotel and in the city for sightseeing. Natural sights like the Lycabettus Hill and National Gardens are home to Zappeion. There's also a stretch of the seaside along the Saronic Gulf. 

Besides, the Olympic Stadium of Modern Times, five miles from the hotel, combines ancient traditions with modern architecture. The iconic Monastiraki Flea Market also beckons you to indulge in authentic flavors and local staples. Besides, a visit to the endless shopping spots, museums, galleries, restaurants, and bars will make your stay even more memorable.

Takeaway

Visiting an inspiring and gracious venue such as King George Hotel, your experience will surely be an enthralling one. This bed and breakfast resort will certainly deliver all that you would expect of a luxury hotel.
