Reviews

5

Cordelia Nicholls (Staff)

The King George is a fantastic alternative to the Grand Bretagne next door for younger couples who prefer more contemporary design, without losing the luxury that comes with a 5 star hotel. The service is still impeccable and even more personalised as there are less rooms, the Tudor Hall restaurant has magnificent views of the Acropolis and serves delicious food from an interesting and creative menu and the rooms are stunning.
