No view and a few surprises.

Posted 15-Oct-2014
Pros: Close to a number of things.
Cons: Hotel staff could have advised us of the race that closed access to many things on Sunday. In general, the staff were responsive but not proactive...
Location: No comments
Two days in Athens with easy access and low number of people.

Excellent location

Posted 21-Sep-2014
Cons: The extra charge of 22 Euros for breakfast is a bit much. Most hotels have a complimentary breakfast.
If you have a balcony overlooking the Acropolis, it is a nice bonus.

Cute boutique feel, lacking on space

Posted 16-Sep-2014
Overall it was okay. I haven't been to Europe before and being in an ancient city I can imagine space is a commodity but the bathroom was tiny and the room was also fairly small. The elevator only held two people. The pool was very small despite what the pictures made it look like. The resturant has a fantastic view and an excellent menu. Very very happy with food. Underground parking was also awesome. The Art gallery inside the hotel was neat and the Asian resturant/bar attached was the best sushi I have ever had.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to know that you liked our view. Please allow me to assure you that our room dimensions are stated on our website, and during each phase of refurbishment are furnished to maximise space and comfort for each valued guest. The rooftop pool is a feature we are most proud of as it provides an oasis in the summer months - it’s dimensions are 11.7m x 6.5m. The lifts in the hotel vary in size depending on their location within the building. Capacity is recorded in each ranging from 6 to 8 persons. We hope that you will choose to stay with us again when you are in Athens, Kindest regards, The Management Team

Great Hotel!

Posted 06-Sep-2014
Pros: The staff, and the beautiful view.
Location: The hotel is on a small hill so it a bit hard to walk on foot.
Very nice staff. Beautiful room. Not far from the center and the Metro.

Fabulous Views of Athens

Posted 14-Aug-2014
Pros: Location, service, the terrasse.
Cons: nothing
Location: 1 Wandering through Kolonaki 2 Having a cup of greek coffee and a piece of baclava in one of the restaurants on Kolonaki Square
The hotel is located in probably the most beautiful part of Athens, Kolonaki. It is a very classy place, yet not pretentious like the similar class hotels in the US. The staff are pleasant and friendly, yet very professional. They were extremely helpful with every issue and every question we had regarding our exploration of Athens (and believe me, there is a lot to see and experience there). The rooms are clean and comfortable, very quiet considering the hotel is in Athens, with all the amenities. The crown of this hotel is its unique and fabulous terrasse on the sixth floor with panoramic views of Athens, where you can have your breakfast (excellent food with good variety buffet) and plan your day while enjoying the breeze and the beauty of Athens. A memorable stay in the most positive way - will come back for sure.

This is not a 5 star hotel....a 3 at best. Decent location, but nothing luxurious. Be advised...not a 5 star hotel.

St George staff were helpful knowledgeable and professional Upon request the room booking was upgraded to a room with a view for two nights out of our 4 at no extra cost and were most grateful Because of the location on a hill it was not possible to be picked up by tour buses however the hotel organised a courtesy taxi that took guests to the tour meeting point at no cost The cleaning staff were efficient and the reception team very helpful I would definitely recommend this boutique hotel and return

Athens worst, not even a 3 star !!!!

Posted 15-Jul-2014
Pros: The roof top view
Cons: Room to improve everything !!!!
Location: Just Ok location
Great location and great view from the roof top. But the rest of the hotel is very old dirty and low class. In the USA this would not even be a 3 star hotel. I can't believe they got a 5 star rating, Corruption in star rating system ????? Expedia should help audit some hotels before promoting them as 5 star. Not a good hotel, dirty and old.
