Hotel Overview


In the heart of Athens.

Rooms at the King George

Ancient meets modern in these luxurious rooms and suites, which showcase antique French furniture, chandeliers and classic decor in kingly hues of red, green and gold, alongside modern comforts and technology. There are signature Luxury Collection king-sized beds, marble bathrooms with rainforest showers and unrivalled views over Athens, which can be enjoyed from your window seat, private balcony or patio.

Food and Facilities

Dine like a king in the regal Tudor Hall restaurant, while enjoying the ubiquitous views of the city. Enjoy exquisite modern Greek cuisine from an ever-changing seasonal menu- choose from dishes such as Aegean sea bass and Santorini salad, alongside specially selected Greek wines, and sip a signature cocktail in the bar afterwards.

Activities at the King George

Work off the jetlag in the fitness studio or take a stroll- you are mere walking distance away from many of the city’s historic landmarks. The Acropolis, the Parthenon and many temples are all nearby, as are world-class museums, designer boutiques and bustling markets, including the artisan shops and bustling tavernas of Plaka.
