“Excellent hotel”
Reviewed 18 January 2012

The St George Lycabettus Hotel is a nice hotel at an excellent location in Athens Kolonaki.
Rooms are of very good size with nice bathrooms and very clean.
We went on a business trip and we had an excellent service throughout our stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with an Acropolis view

The St George Lycabettus Boutique Hotel is a family owned luxury property that has most probably, the finest view of the Acropolis that money can buy. This is not just a jewel in the crown but the whole box of treasure in my view.
Athens has one or two other luxury properties that would give their right arms to match a view such as this and the St George milks it for all its worth. The breakfast room and main restaurant Le Grand Balcon is on the top floor for example, providing a stunning panorama of the city and the Pantheon from wherever you sit; the perfect start or end to your day.
Then of course there are the bedrooms. If you treat yourself to an exterior room you’ll have a balcony with a view almost matching the restaurant. That said, the rooms are a little on the small side, but when you consider most of the space is taken up by a huge bed swathed in crisp linen, then I suppose it’s not a bad compromise.
The lounge areas are comfortable and particularly cosy at night when the glow of candles abounds.
For a boutique style hotel, the St George throws in a few added bonuses you wouldn’t expect; a roof top pool in the summer months, providing some welcome respite from the Athens heat, an art gallery, gym and spa in the basement and Frame, one of the hottest nightspots in town. And it’s the kind of hotel that’s small enough for the staff to get to know you, but also hold its own against the grander competition just down the hill in Syntagma Square.
Although the popular spots of Athens like Plaka, Psiri and the ancient monuments are all easily within walking distance, the quiet leafy oasis of Kolonaki with its cafes, fashion boutiques and little squares is a haven to return to after a busy day.
I was at the St George over the New Year festivities and standing there with my fellow revellers (many of them locals) high up on the terrace of the Le Grand Balcon watching the New Year’s Eve fireworks lighting up the city, I felt a little privileged. It was, dare I say it, a moment to savour, particularly after a momentous economic year of struggle. Mind you, the savouring was all the more sweet at the sumptuous buffet breakfast they provided from 5am for those who needed some energy replenishment.
I travel very frequently and the St George is certainly a hotel I will return to. As long as I get a room with that view of course!

Room Tip: Acropolis view is stunning

After the first night when 3 Greeks had an all night party next door, we had a great stay! Well worth paying for a balcony overlooking Accropolis. Restaurant good, breakfast excellent

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet location, and pay for a balcony/view

Great boutique hotel with friendly staff and perfect location in Kolonaki! Now when you combine this with the best view of Acropolis from the rooms up front and best comparable prices vs other 5 star hotels, it really makes it to be the best deal, best location, best view for your money!! I have been staying there for years anytime I visit Athens and will not change it for any other hotel such as Hilton, King George, etc....
