A palatial residence from King George, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Athens, enhances the suite portfolio of the Hotel Grande Bretagne.

Grande Bretagne

The Hotel King George stands right alongside its sister in the Luxury Collection, the Hotel Grande Bretagne, and the two complement each other to convey the highest level of quality service.

Being the designated hospitality pioneer in the city, the Hotel Grande Bretagne was and will always be the reason why “philoxenia” went to a whole new level. That being said, and in order to perfectly meet our global explorers’ high expectations, we have decided to reinforce the hotel’s portfolio by incorporating the Penthouse Suite from King George, to the Hotel Grande Bretagne suite portfolio, and therefore offer a matchless mix of luxury accommodation choices to our guests.

To achieve the above, we have created a “bridge” and connected the two hotels from the roof on the 8th floor, with a secret door which, only the Penthouse Suite guests can access.

Located in the very center of the vibrant city of Athens since 1930, the King George Hotel represents the absolute essence of a fascinating, state-of-the-art boutique hotel. It has always been distinctively recognized for its iconic rooms with the finest natural hard wood floors. A superb example of neo-classical architecture, King George is the only 5-star boutique hotel in central Athens.

With incomparable views of the luminous city and the Parthenon, this historic hotel encapsulates the unique experience of a Penthouse Suite with private outdoor pool overlooking the famed Acropolis.

Hotel Grande Bretagne dates back to 1874 and proudly represents the finest essence of hospitality ever since, with 259 guestrooms and 61 suites providing distinguished living in the heart of Athens.


The Suite visitors immediately appreciate two things about the residence: the dramatic views of the world-famous Acropolis from the hotel’s impressive location on historic Syntagma Square, and its deeply serene interior, offering a perfect counterpoint to the awe-inspiring spectacle of the city. The most important historical sites in Athens, including the Parthenon, the Ancient Agora, Plaka, Monastiraki, Thission or the Temple of Olympian Zeus are within walking distance from the Penthouse Suite.


Located on the 9th floor of the historic Hotel King George, the 350 sq. meter Penthouse Suite creates a selection of admiring feelings from the very first impression.

Featuring the unique experience of a private rooftop pool, the Suite delivers a uniquely luminous experience of Athens, with matchless views of the Acropolis.
Walking through a long marbled corridor, the crème colored spacious living room lightens up this exceptional suite while the dining room, seating 10 persons, further enhances the grandeur of an opulent culinary experience. The epicurean journey is additionally facilitated by a private kitchen located right next to the dining area. Out of the three marble bathrooms, the master double-vanity one not only provides its valued guests with exclusive Molton Brown amenities, but also encloses the alluring option of a relaxing bathtub or a soothing rainfall shower.

After noticing the full-mirrored walk-in closet on the left hand side of the corridor, the master bedroom welcomes you to its peaceful environment and introduces you to the Signature Luxury Collection king size bed. The decorative fireplace, the antique working desk and the small sitting area complete the flawless essence of a romantic atmosphere.
As befits a boutique establishment of this calibre, the Penthouse suite is eclectically decorated, with hand-picked art, artefacts and fresh flowers. The original oak parquet flooring, waxed to perfection, adds another layer of luxury-residence warmth and subtle fragrance.


Dining at this magnificent suite is a delectable experience. Our talented team offers personalized service and creates the most excellent atmosphere for a private dining at the pool area under the illuminated sky. Contemporary Greek or international gourmet menus are available 24/7. Dinner parties, wine-tastings, afternoon teas or private receptions can also be arranged in the intimacy of the suite, with the fabled Parthenon on the Acropolis making an unforgettable backdrop.


The exceptional levels of service, the natural tact and the talent of intuiting residents’ wishes, make the Penthouse Suite visitors to feel as honored and well-attended as a house guest in a noble home.

The guests savor the perfectly curated service carried out by the Butler Service professional and accomplished team. Knowledgeable associates guide the suite guests through epicurean highlights, special moments and annual occasions or cultural tours.

Dinner parties, wine-tastings, afternoon teas or private receptions can also be arranged in the intimacy of the suite, with the fabled Parthenon on the Acropolis making an unforgettable backdrop.
