The Best Suites in the World: The Royal Penthouse at the King George Palace, Athens

May 16, 2011 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

King George Palace, AthensFrom your own private pool, take in the unobstructed views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill. Talk about the pinnacle of luxury! Located on prestigious Syntagma Constitution Square in the heart of downtown Athens, the King George Palace has been a top address for visiting celebs and dignitaries since 1936. The views from the gourmet resto on the 7th floor may be phenomenal, but imagine your own private terrace with a pool and jacuzzi! That's what's in store in the Royal Penthouse Suite, occupying 350 square meters on the 9th floor (in fact, it takes up the entire floor). The views inside are just as nice: wall paintings by Konstantin Kakanias.

Even if you're not in the market for A-list digs like the Royal Penthouse Suite, you'll swoon over the accommodations at the King George Palace-- all individually designed with hand-crafted armoires, silk fabrics, marble bathrooms with deep soaking tubs, and free wifi.
