The location and the view at the terrace are perfect at first; but the room was small and the foods and drinks are expensive in the hotel.

Check in was fast an easy, staff friendly and helpful. Having read the other feedbacks about the St George I was prepared to upgrade my room after taking advantage of the discounted online deal. On arrival, I discovered I had already been 'upgraded' but upon seeing the new room, I can only imagine how much tinier the first room would have been. Ugraded again for €30 per night to a room with a gorgeous view of the Parthenon. Stunning and well worth it. We enjoyed our stay but I would echo other comments about it NOT being a 5 star hotel. €26 euro pp breakfasts and €15 per day internet quickly inflates the billbut we avoided that by using the delightful cafes 10 mins walk away.

Average place for a 5 stars hotel. Small rooms and very noisy (you can clearly hear everything from other rooms)and average service. Room not ready when we arrived. Nice bar downstairs and lovely view from the skybar (but overpriced). We were not even informed that there was a national strike at the airport when we booked a cab at the reception !!!

I had already heard about this hotel and I was not disappointed at all : the location - on the Lycabettus - is perfect and the comfort of the hotel is irreproachable. I really enjoyed staying at this hotel and would be pleased to go back there.

First time time to Athens. Very nice hotel with fantastic view to Akropolis. We upgraded our room to a room with balcony. Can be recommended. Some stairs down to city, but it is within walking distance.

This was a pleasant surprise. Roof-top pool with bar, restaurant with direct view to Acropolis, well trained and pleasant staff. Newly refurbished, with cool details. Would definitely stay there again, all though I hope to get a slightly bigger room next time :-)

Although we booked a double deluxe room we did not think the room we were given was that 'deluxe'. Having said that the room was good value for money and we were on a high floor with a view of the Acropolis as requested. The position of the hotel is excellent and if we returned to Athens we would definitely stay there again.

This is a lovely hotel in a beautiful location in Athens. Not as close to the Plaka region as indicated on the website, but still only a 10-15 minute walk. The restaurant had a stunning outlook to the acropolis, as did our room. Bi-lingual staff made communication easy. Overall a very enjoyable stay in a an upmarket part of town, quiet at night but close enough to the bustle of nightlife in the Plaka region. Highly recommended.

A BEAUTIFUL HOTEL WITH EXCELLENT ROOMS, BUT A LITTLE HIGH, IF YOU COME FROM THE CENTRE OR WHERE EVER YOU COME FROM(AKROPOLIS, METRO ETC.) YOU HAVE TO WALK HIGH UP. (OR YOU CAN TAKE A TAXI)

The hotel is situated in a residential area and is best reached by taxi. We only stayed there a Sunday night. The restaurant was closed and the neighbourhood was fairly quiet.

It depends very much on the room I guess but ours was very noisy. Great view from the top floor restaurant. Services (food, pool, ...) are rather overpriced.

Neighbors' noise was heard. The view from the room was nothing as it faced the opposite building of the hotel. Extra bed was stalled and accupied the free space. Not so accessible to city centre because hotel is located in the middle of hill. If you have a room facing to Athens city, you can enjoy a great scenery of Akropolis.
