Saint George Lycabettus Hotel

The recently redesigned and completely refurbished St. George Lycabettus is situated high upon the slopes of Mt. Lycabettus in the centre of Athens’ most cosmopolitan area, Kolonaki. The main draw here is definitely the hotel’s location, with sublime views, of the city crowned by the Acropolis on one side and the tiny church of St. George, from whence the hotel took its name, perched precariously above on the summit.

Eccentric and eclectic, each floor, corridor and room is decorated with a different theme and styled accordingly with works by various Greek artists. Some have 19th century neo-classical atmosphere, while others are ultra-modern. The top floor presidential suite sports the uniquely Louis XIV – goes-to-Africa décor, with its animal print lamp shades and fur pillows, and boasts 100 square meters of balcony. The hotel has something to sweet everyone’s taste, but you may wish to opt for the corner rooms as they enjoy panoramic views with windows on two sides.

The location, nestled among the pine trees high above the city, ensures a constant breezy atmosphere, which is especially magical at night when the Parthenon is beautifully illuminated and appears to be floating dream-like in the sky. To take full advantage of the hotel’s setting, take-in the view with a deep in the roof top pool, enjoy a cocktail in the Sky Bar or dine in Le Grand Balcon Restaurant, which serves up nouvelle Greek cuisine in an eccentrically decorated interior designed by Angelos Angelopoulos.

Tree-trunk cocktail tables, strings of crystal bids cascading from the bar and silver leather sofas set of with a splattering fuchsia taffeta make for an intriguing atmosphere that has been called everything from “Rock Baroque” to “Alice-steps-through-the-looking-glass-and-ends-up-in-Las Vegas”. Another place in which to lose one self is the spa, with its undulating lavender walls permeated with the scent of essential oils. For a more down-to-earth experience, there is the casual restaurant-bar, Frame, with its 1970s-revival décor.
