St George Lycabettus Hotel: Discreet Luxury

One of Athens' most popular boutique hotels in posh Kolonaki


LOCATION

Nested on the pine-covered slopes of Lycabettus Hill in the center of Kolonaki.

BACKGROUND

Just a few steps from the luxury shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars of Kolonaki, the most hip area in Athens, you’ll find one of the most popular boutique hotels in town. Discreetly luxurious, the St George Lycabettus is considered by many the “quiet force” of Athenian hotels. International stars that have graced it with their presence, include Catherine Deneuve, Elvis Costello, Jane Birkin, Jeremy Irons, Juliette Binoche, Nick Cave and Vincent Cassel, and they all agree that one of the hotel’s most attractive attributes is its proximity to the pine forest of Lycabettus Hill, which makes us forget that we are in the city center.

FEATURES

154 modern bedrooms and suites bathed in natural light, decorated in calming, earthy tones, uncluttered lines and wooden details, promise a comfortable and relaxed stay.
Dining at the St George Lycabettus offers you the chance to sample dishes highlighting the flavors of Greece with one of the best views in Athens. From romantic meals for two on your balcony or restaurant service with a flourish, to snacks in the sunshine, there is something to suit all occasions.
The Sensia Spa is a haven of wellbeing and relaxation, where you can enjoy a beauty treatment or attend a Pilates class.
On the top floor is a pool which despite its small size is the ideal place for a cooling dip or a refreshing cocktail from the pool bar with a view of the Acropolis under the Athenian sky. There is also a well-equipped gym right beside it.

Guests and visitors at the St George Lycabettus can also spend some time enjoying the art at the hotel’s in-house gallery, the SG Art Gallery, which showcases work by Greek and international contemporary artists. It also presents current trends and supports new interactive projects, fashion events, screenings and gastronomy dinners.
Its event halls offer multiple choices for conferences, seminars, receptions, parties or weddings.

EAT & DRINK

The La Suite Lounge Bar-Restaurant on the top floor of the hotel serves modern Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on fresh local ingredients and local products, and has a well-informed list of wines with local labels. In the same space you’ll find the White Bar, where you can enjoy a drink to music by selected DJs and birds’ eye view of Athens by night.
