King George Palace Hotel Athens

 

It is a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, combining the grace and stature of a historic landmark with ultra-modern amenities and personal service that puts guests comfort above all else – right down to a personal trainer in the state-of-the-art health club, exclusively for hotel guests. Located on Syntagma Square, the King George Palace Hotel was originally built as a small urban palais that served as an annex to the Palace, which then occupied the building that housed the Greek Parliament on the squares eastern flank.

Later, it served briefly as the prime ministers residence before being acquired by a Greek businessman who added several floors and converted it into a hotel. One of its first guests was King George II, who made it his haunt. In the Fifties, Sixties, and Seventies, it was also the favourite hotel of international celebrities, magnates, world leaders, and movie stars like Aristotle Onassis and Maria Kallas, Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier of Monaco, Marilyn Monroe, Brigitte Bardot, and François Mitterrand.
