At a Glance

After extensive renovations completed in 2013, the King George has just the right mix of Old European grandeur and modern comforts.

  • Calm and intimate lobby 
  • Subtle elegance of the contemporary-style rooms
  • Access to most of Grand Bretagne's facilities, except for the rooftop pool


Not only is the King George located next door to the legendary Grande Bretagne on Syntagma Square, it is now owned by the same hotel group. The truth is you can't really go wrong at either property but what gives the King George a bit of an edge is that it went through major renovations in 2013; its 102 rooms have just the right touch of Old World elegance (parquet wooden floors, sweeping curtains and chandeliers) but are soundproofed and updated. Its Royal Penthouse Suite is often on the lists of the most luxurious suites in the world; it takes up the entire 9th floor and boasts its own terrace and pool with stunning views the Parthenon. And while it might not have a spa on par to that of the Grande Bretagne, guests of the King George are allowed to use it. Many also appreciate the more intimate size of the property compared to its much larger sister which can be thronged with cruise ship crowds.

Who Should Stay

Anyone looking for a central grand hotel with a sense of place; also for those who want a bit more space for their money and don't mind missing out on the amenities of the Grand Bretagne.
