The hotel has the best location in Athens. Everything from the architecture to the service is elegant. The rooms are fabulous and timeless...not to mention the views...breathtaking. The beds are plush...I could stay in it the whole day...the bathroom is a whole room unto itself...very posh. The cafe in the lobby also serves superb dishes and is a great place... More

Stayed here with my family for 3 days in Nov 2015. Great location, close to main spots, easily accessible. Nice roof top restaurant with good view of the acropolis. The rooms were small but clean. Good staff, very helpful.

The hotel is beautiful! I chose this hotel as a Platinum SPG member and loved it! The location is great - very central. I was upgraded to a Grand Suite that had a view to the Acropolis. The room had a nice sitting area, beautiful chandeliers, fresh flowers and was stocked with Molton Brown products, a large bowl of fruit,... More

Walnut doors plush carpeting and the most amazing part is that you do not check in in lobby but a concierge office upstairs where they serve champagne and petit fours before taking you to the room The views of the Acropolis from the rooftop at night are phenomenal Expensive but a definite bucket list First class in every way

Classical luxury and friendly straff. What you can expect from a five star hotel. Nice rooftop breakfast with view of the Akropolis. Good location next to the parliament and close to the Plaka. Nice perk: complementary shoe shine. Check in was a little slow however.

I spend 150 nights a year in SPG properties - and this has been the best. Rooms were cleaned and beds were constantly made. Staff was unbelievable - strikes for ferries were ongoing and they called the ferry companies every morning to help us plan our itinerary. The spa (which is included in the stay) was a highlight - 3... More

We were expecting a top class hotel and were more than a little bit dissapointed. The only good thing about the hotel is the roof terrace. Service was ok but they dont know how to think out of the box. Our classic room was very small and there was no coffee or tea making facilities in the hotel which is... More

If anything, the view from the rooftop restaurant, especially at night, is the best of the Parliament and the Acropolis. The hotel is extremely comfortable and does have luxury amenities. the staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It remains my favorite Athens hotel after all the years of the cirisis. Its location is unique in the center.

Dear Guest, First and foremost, we would like to sincerely thank you for your wonderful comments. We were moved by the fact that your father was accommodated at the Hotel Grande Bretagne back in the Second World War. Indeed the Hotel Grande Bretagne is entwined with Athens history and was the headquarters of the British Expeditionary Force repeatedly hosting a... 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.
