Athens grande dame with a rooftop pool presiding over postcard views of the Acropolis and Mount Lycabettus
Tucked away behind the upscale cafés and patisseries of Kolonaki, the St. George Lycabettus has been an Athens landmark for more than half a century. But this grande dame wears her years gracefully. Pale marble and gleaming wood preside over the light and airy space, while animal-print-inspired rugs and dark leather armchairs lend a modern touch.
Bed and Bath
From an Acropolis View Room you get great views over the city to (you guessed it) the Acropolis, while Exterior Rooms look out at Mount Lycabettus. Burgundy velvet curtains and chairs, satin spreads and dark leather chairs put a modern twist on the classic look. For the smaller Standard Rooms the designers have gone for walls and fabrics in cool blue tones (the huge vase of lilies is a nice touch). The bathrooms are lavish and gleamingly modern, with mosaic tiles surrounding the tub and multijet shower.
Dine at the stylish La Suite Lounge, on the sixth floor, or in the hotel’s main restaurant, Le Grand Balcon, which serves a lavish buffet breakfast. Later in the day it offers a menu prepared by chef Vassilis Milios that fuses Greek and French influences. Frame, the alfresco restaurant-bar on the ground floor, has been a popular rendezvous for Athenians since it opened in 2002. Meanwhile, the hotel’s own SG Artgallery offers a feast for the eyes, providing a venue for contemporary Greek talents. Or you can relax by the pool with killer views of the Acropolis rising from a sea of modern buildings.
