We'd originally planned to spend our two nights in Athens at a lower-end hotel, but were gifted two nights at this hotel for our wedding, and what a difference it made! We sat at the rooftop bar for a few drinks before dinner at the rooftop restaurant our first night (amazing view of the Acropolis at sunset, and best meals... More

We were hesitant at first because we usually don’t go for the grand old historic hotels, but we had a great deal through Starwood’s points so we booked The Grande Bretagne and were pleasantly surprised! The Grande Bretagne was in the best location in Athens. The hotel was completely modernized and had anything you wanted in a major hotel. The... More

Stayed 4 nights in this very central property, within walking distance to Acropolis, parliament, major museums, and the restaurant district. Lovely classic hotel that treats you well. Breakfasts are superb however service can be hit or miss there. We had both. Rooms are luxurious and quiet, and beds are comfortable. Could not ask for a better stay.

Refined, and tasteful with style and grace. We had room 612 with butler service (which we did not use). The views from our balcony were of the Acropolis, Parliament with the changing of the guard every hour, and in the distance, Olympic Stadium, the mountains, and the Aegean Sea. This same view was on the 8th floor breakfast room, and... More

I have just returned after a two night stay at Grande Bretagne in Athens and am really disappointed with the experience at the hotel. We had booked rooms at this hotel because we had heard glowing reviews of the hotel. The Grande Bretagne’s reputation precedes it. We checked in at 9 am on the 27th of August 2014 and were... More

I have being lucky enough to have stayed in this iconic hotel for forty years . When it was renovated over a decade ago, a historic hotel became more that just that . It became one of the great hotels of the world . Over the years I have seen many management and staff changes . None were more professional... More

We spent a couple of nights at GB in August when the outdoor temps were 40degrees! Lovely to be in a beautiful hotel with very well functioning air conditioning and a central location second to none! We had a suite with a balcony overlooking the acropolis - beautifully lit up at night - and enjoyed an excellent room service dinner... More

One of the finest hotels I have ever stayed in. My husband and I stayed one night while traveling through Greece. The Grande Bretagne is true luxury. We stayed on the butler floor and were assigned a butler. not something we really need, but was a fancy touch. The room was large (#621), bathroom and bedroom separated by closet area.... More

I was in Athens several times, but this time was absolutely special thanks to the staying at GB! The hotel is perfectly placed in the main square, with all monuments at walkable distance. The view from the roof terrace is amazing and I suggest to have at least a drink there, better a dinner, which impressed me for the taste... More

Fantastic service to back up a very smart product. Perfectly sited in Syntagma Square. Service started at the door with a friendly attentive doorman. Slick check in. Well equipped and well maintained rooms (we had adjoining rooms for the kids). Great rooftop pool and bar and a very well presented and served restaurant.
