Planed to stay one night on the way home. Wound up staying three nights due to an air traffic controller strike. Hotel and spa, while expensive, are fantastic and the staff and concierges were very helpful. Rooftop bar/restaurant has an amazing view of the Acropolis.

A very splendid old style hotel with great charm. Rooms look recently refurbished and had a good and comfortable bed. The only downside being a small, strangely shaped shower area in what was otherwise a decent bathroom. Not good if you are big or have movement difficulty. Staff helpful and very willing. Good options for eating out nearby. Facilities are...

Nothing "big box hotel" at the King George! One gets a feeling of nostalgia at this hotel - the stately marble lobby, understated, mellow decoration, a peaceful feel, attentive staff. The rooms are comfortable, though a bit dated and starting to show wear. The hallways definitely are showing wear. In all fairness, there is an active refurbishment program underway to...

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for a few days right after Christmas. We paid the extra money for a view of the Acropolis (which wasn't great) and a deluxe room. We were highly disappointed at the noise level from the restaurant located on the rooftop. It was extremely loud in the morning with the breakfast buffet going...

Fantastic luxury hotel centrally located at syntagma square - easy to get all over Athens from here! The rooms are well appointed, with a feel of luxury, and the sister property next door The Grand Bretagne is even more opulent - which you will visit if you wish to use the spa and gym facilities - again top notch. Service...

Stayed here for 3 nights while exploring Athens. The hotel is 'old world', lots of charm and perfect location to explore the city, direct subway access. Due to my Platinum-status we received an upgrade to a suite, free breakfast and internet. The room was of good size with antique furniture. Also the welcome amenity (some liquor and chocolates) was nice....

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.
