Lovely View, Good Location

Posted 13-Apr-2016
Pros: Staff, View
Cons: Pool, Air conditioning in April
Location: Explore Athens and Lykavittos hill which is outside of the Hotel
April visit to Greece great time to go. Hotel was good and my overall rating would have been higher if the pool was open and the air-conditioning switched on. We had great weather above average for April and found the hotel room very hot as we did not want a draft from the window while asleep and the hotel does not turn the air-conditioning on yet. It is probably standard practice to have the pool closed at this time of year though I would have swam. It was a week stay and later in the week the room became more comfortable. The staff were lovely and breakfast has a great view though not worth the price for more than one day if you do not have it included with your room deal. I will probably try a different Hotel on my next visit.

Dear Guest, Thank you for your observations. We are glad to know that you enjoyed our wonderful view and marvellous location. Please may we assure you that we take the greatest care to ensure our valued guest’s comfort. The pool is open in the summer as the weather in Athens can be changeable. The hotel features a central climate control system with in-room thermostats to fine-tune the temperature. Our breakfast buffet has a huge range of items selected by our chef with an emphasis on the produce from Greece. We are happy to serve a la carte items for our guests who wish a smaller meal. Quality and value are a priority at the St George Lycabettus Hotel. We hope you will choose to stay with us again in the future; this summer our new roof terrace promises the best views in the city! Kindest regards, The Management Team

Hotel on a hill.

Posted 10-Apr-2016
Pros: The view and the restaurant.
Cons: The beds (rubber mattress cover was very uncomfortable) and the A/C.
Location: It's in the old part of the city on a hill. There are many shops, cafes and restaurants in the area.
Hotel had great views. Rooms were a little small and the beds not Marriott standard but okay. The A/C didn't work so we slept with the balcony door open. Good thing it was only April.

Globalement bon hotel mais pas un vrai 5 étoiles

Posted 07-Mar-2016
Pros: Proximité des lieux d'intérêt. Le calme. Le serviceet le personnel.
Cons: Confort de la literie. Température des chambres. Offrir au moins une bouteille d'eau et ne pas proposer de boir l'eau de robinet!
Location: Quartier residential chic, calme et à une distance de marche (15 à 20mn) des lieux d'intérêt.
Globalement un bon hôtel. Situé dans un quartier résidentiel, calme et non loin de tous les beaux endroits à visiter à Athènes. Vous pouvez marcher vers les zones commerçantes, le Centre historique de Plaka et de l'Acropole. L'hôtel est situé sur la célèbre colline de Lycabettus, où vous pouvez en quelques minutes rejoindre le Funiculaire pour aller admirer tout Athènes. Vous pouvez facilement marcher à tous ces lieux à pied, mais vous avez besoin de revenir en taxi ou en métro car la colline est difficile à remonter! L’hôtel est un peu vieux, mais propre. Les chambres sont correctes, et le service est très bon à tous les niveaux. La chambre était cependant trop chauffée sans possibilité de contrôler la température, au point que nous avons été obligés de garder la fenêtre ouverte la plupart du temps. Nous avions une chambre du côté de la cour centrale, calme, comme la zone, mais pendant la journée, il y avait des travaux de construction avec du bruit de temps en temps... Le petit déjeuner est cher (22 € / pax) mais bon. A mon avis, l'hôtel n’est pas aux normes d’un vrai 5 étoiles.

Great hotel if its upgraded.

Posted 07-Feb-2016 on Hotels
Nice located north of Athens in the Kolonaki area. Old hotel which need to be upgraded to be able to maintaon Five stars. As its presented today its not a five star hotel. Both the bed room and the barhroom need upgrad to 2016 standard. The spa area is great. Its the best about the hotel. The view from 6th floor is fantastic. The breakfast is ok, in a five star hotel you expect a chef to prepare fresh warm dishes. Overall a good hotel when its get upgraded, i traveled both south and north of Athens, so easy to go both ways. The traffic u cant do anything about.

Good location, but good 3 stars.

Posted 28-Jan-2016
Perfect location. Breakfast was not included to our stay, can't say anything about it. We had dinner at the restorant on top of the hotel it was really disappointing. Restoran has a nice view, this is the only reason to stop by.

- Ein größerer Geldbetrag ist aus meinem geschlossenen Safe in meinem Zimmer entwendet worden. Ich habe eine Strafanzeige bei der Polizei erstattet. - Die Hoteldirektion berief sich darauf, dass sie keinen Einbruch in meinem Zimmer nachweisen können, und verwies mich auf die Hotel Policy, wonach das Hotel sich nur dann für den Verlust eines Wertgegenstands oder von Geld verantwortlich fühlt, wenn dieser Wertgegenstand oder das Geld zuvor bei der Hoteldirektion für zentrale Aufbewahrung abgegeben wurde. - Ich weiß zwar, dass ich unmöglich die Entwendung meines Geldes nachweisen kann, aber empfinde diese "formalistische" Handhabung meines Problems und die implizite Zweifel seitens des Hotels an der Richtigkeit meiner Aussage/Klage gerade und insbesondere bei einem 5 Sterne Hotel als sehr enttäuschend.

Nice location - very dated bedroom interior.

Posted 18-Jan-2016
We had a lovely stay in Athens, hotel staff we friendly and helpful. Breakfast vastly overpriced. Our room was dated, drab and dirty under the bed. We did a secret rooms deal and guess that because we paid a cheaper rate we got 'second class' room ! Overall though a pleasant hotel.
