St George Lycabettus Hotel
Kleomenous 2, Kolonaki, , Athens, Attiki, Greece
Just a quick stroll from Syntagma Square, home to the Greek Parliament, and within walking distance of most of Athens’ most frequented museums. The St George Lycabettus Hotel is located in Kolonaki, central Athens’ most exclusive quarter. The domain of wealthy Greeks, glamorous socialites and foreign embassy staff, the neighborhood surrounding the lifestyle hotel is a lively home to some of Athens’ most fashionable bars and restaurants, chic boutiques and designer stores. Yet the hotel’s backdrop of lush, pine-scented Lycabettus Hill, with its soaring views of the Acropolis, provides a haven for rejuvenating strolls or peaceful interludes far from the bustle of the city.
