Luxury Hotels Athens - King George Palace - Hotels

A legend since 1936, The King George Palace has been home to kings, princes, presidents and Athenians alike.

The only hotel in Athens among the 75 Top Europe Hotels of the Conde Nast Traveler U.S.A. Reader’s Choice Awards, also honored on the 2005 Hot List and the 2007 Gold List.

Some people have status and some seek status from symbols.

The King George Palace was created for people who recognize quality and demand excellence in all they do.

A member of the Leading Hotels of the World, the King George Palace combines the grace and stature of a historic landmark with ultramodern amenities and personal service that puts guests’ comfort above all else – right down to a personal trainer in the state-of-the-art health club, exclusively for hotel guests.



History

The King George Palace was originally built as a small urban palais that served as an annex to the Palace, which then occupied the building that houses Greece’s Parliament on the square’s eastern flank.

Later, it served briefly as the prime minister’s residence before being acquired by a Greek businessman who added several floors and converted it into a hotel. 

One of its first guests was King George II, who made it his haunt.

In the Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies, it was also the favourite hotel of international celebrities, magnates, world leaders, and movie stars like Aristotle Onassis and Maria Kallas, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, Frank Sinatra, and Francois Mitterand.

Ideally located on Constitution Square, this hotel is one of the most famous landmarks in Athens, in the heart of the business and shopping district.

  • Within walking distance from the Acropolis, the Old City (Plaka) and most of Athens sights and attractions.
