Perfectly located between the designer district, Kolonaki and the ancient district, Monastiraki, Plaka and Thisso. A must while staying here is to dine at the GB Rooftop restaurant, the food is perfect! Our table of four ordered a variety of seafood appetizers to share and the mains varied from lamb to salmon to bass to pasta ~ each were prepared... More

Enjoyed three nights here as the first stop on a three location Greek tour. Service levels are evident from the moment you check in - including a complimentary drink waiting on our room being serviced. Room was well appointed, spotless and very quiet. Only had dinner on the rooftop and lunch by the pool before we left for Santorini, preferring... More

Good location, average commercial hotel with a great lobby and a restaurant on the rooftop with a nice view of the Acropolis. Front rooms with views of the main square and parliament building. Staff was helpful on arriving and departing . Only stayed two nights so can't comment on pool , gym or spa .

Great location next to parliament and metro. Easy walking to Acropolis. Breakfast area at top provides awesome view of Parthenon. Only surprise I had was having to pay for Internet and breakfast which were included in hotels we stayed at in Italy. One challenge with Athens is we didn't see any cabs that could accommodate 5 people - we had... More

The hotel is situated right in the middle of Athens -- next to Parliament and Syntagma Square. Easy walking distance to shops, attractions, & restaurants. The rooms are a great blend of history with modern convenience. The service provided was excellent by all members of the staff, from the bell men, to the artists, to the registration agents. Highly recommended.

European-style hotel with classic architecture and elegant, the rooms were very nice. Perfect location. We haven't try any restaurant there because we would love to have local food instead. Concierge provided fantastic service especially recommended restaurant. Could not have been better.

Our recent stay at this hotel, July 9, 10, 11, was outstanding and superb!! Our classic room was elegant and charming. Our view of Parliament and Syntagma Square was memorable and one- of - a kind. Yes, politics and free-speech are in full-swing before your eyes, in the square below, but the protests (called gatherings by the hotel) are civilized... More

I stayed at the Hotel Grande Bretagne for 3 nights in July with my wife and 3 teenagers. What can I say, the hotel is beautiful, the location can't be beat and the staff/service were fantastic. We had 3 rooms all of which were clean, nicely decorated and comfortable. The hotel was quiet and the beds were comfortable. The hotel... More

We stayed for 6 nights during a crazy hot, politically tumultuous time this summer. The Grande Bretagne was like an oasis. Beautiful, comfortable, great service and the amenities were fabulous. The rooftop pool is perfect, and the spa and saunas below the hotel were amazing! Neither were crowded when we were there. Their prices are unbelievable for the level of... More

We chose this hotel for our quick two night stay in Athens after completing our island stays in Mykonos and Santorini. We were expecting a little luxury and we were not disappointed. From the moment you arrive, helpful staff are at every turn without being in the way. The lobby is elegant and grand. Check in was a breeze and... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
