Stayed here in July 2014 with the family. The hotel is definitely one of the "grand old dames" of the European hotel scene. One senses that immediately when walking into the lobby for the first time. It's all a bit too ornate and old school (I prefer minimalist modern) but the wife liked it a lot. We had a base... More

The best hotel to stay at in Athens. (I've only stayed at one but that's what everyone seems to tell me with an unbias opinion) Very central location in Athens about 35 minutes from the airport. The metro apparently is right across the street and connects almost directly with the airport. My wife and I stayed here for 2 days... More

Stayed at the property for the first time - used to stay at the King George in the past. The Grande Bretagne certainly lives up to its reputation. It is a wonderful hotel with all the facilities that a demanding visitor expects. The rooftop restaurants and bars are attractive and the views are incredible. Our room was spacious and well... More

First, let me clarify that I did not stay at the hotel, but instead spent a fantastic afternoon and sunset on its rooftop in the open air bar overlooking the Akropolis and city. You can see everything from this rooftop. The cocktails are exquisite and pricey, but they come with good salty bar snacks. The wait staff never hurried us... More

We have stayed here four different times and we are never disappointed. This time we were upgraded to the Butler Floor both nights where George Polydoros took great care of us. Between stays (we stayed one night before going to the islands and one night coming back), George took care of car transfers and anything else we needed, all by... More

We checked into the Bretagne on June 15, expecting our specific accommodation instructions to be met. We were at the end of our Greece vacation and needed peace and quiet before getting home to our hectic lives. We were directed to the 6th floor Butler service and told we'd been upgraded. A nice start -- except the upgraded room was... More

We stayed at this hotel for two days. It is very well located because it is right in the centre of the city. All of the staff were very friendly. The architecture of the hotel is just beautiful. There is also a lot to do in the hotel. Overall, we had a great stay and we would definitely go there... More

We were fortunate enough to stay one night at the Grande Bretagne before our recent cruise out of Athens. We had previously stayed at the King George Palace, the sister hotel next door, and hoped this would live up to the same high standard. We were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived we found the service to be excellent.... More

First impression was that of opulence. Breathtakingly beautiful and located within the heart of Athens. We had a standard room overlooking quiet side street which we were grateful for as the better rooms had wonderful views but experienced traffic noise. Ultra comfortable beds, luxury bathroom with quality toiletries. Everything you would expect in a 5 star hotel. Our stay was... More
