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.

This is a very classically luxurious hotel in the world. The service is seemless. The rooms however are on the small side. We booked a junior suite and it could not have been bigger than a standard hotel room. Location wise it is in a perfect spot to explore from. Only minutes from the main attractions and all within walking... More

We got two connecting rooms and stayed for four nights. Our rooms had city view with Syntagma Square right in front of us and we were able to watch change of guards from the comfort of our room. Very impressive traditional touch in every corner. Very comfortable and clean bedding. The spa was amazing. We used indoor pool all the... More

While it's location is ideal, there are lots of problems at this pricey hotel. The rooms are small and it was not as clean as it should have been. The concierge was very helpful before we arrived but completely ignored us once we arrived. We stood in front of their desk while they could not be bothered to even look... More

We stayed at the Hotel Great Bretagne as a stop over to our holiday in Chania. We were very impressed. Yes it is old fashioned. However that somehow adds to the experience. It is grand. But it has lost non of it's elegance. We recommend dinner and breakfast at the roof top restaurant. The staff are very helpful and friendly.... More
