Fodor's Review

One of the most historic and luxurious hotels in Athens, the King George is probably the best hotel in town. This is where Madonna and Woody Allen stayed while visiting Athens (in the same Royal Penthouse suite, but not at the same time!), and first impressions tell you why: a spacious lobby done in marble, mahogany, velvet, leather, and gold trim lures you into a world where antique crystal lamps and frosted glass shower stalls with mother-of-pearl tiles raise standards

of luxury to dizzying heights. Each room is individually furnished with one-of-a-kind handcrafted furniture, antique desks, and raw-silk upholstery. Heavy brocade curtains are no more than a decorative flourish: the rooms are soundproofed and their lighting calibrated to the natural light. At the Tudor Hall rooftop restaurant, savor Greco-French delicacies and a view of the city skyline stretching from the Panathenaic Stadium to the Parthenon.
