I have never received such poor service at a hotel. My husband and I returned from breakfast one morning to discover the most awful, wretched smell coming from the toilet in our bathroom. It smelled like the toilet had backed up. We called the front desk to send someone up to help us. They sent a woman from housekeeping with... More

We selected this hotel after doing a decent amount of research on the hotel options in Athens. GB was on the pricier (priciest) end, but the reviews in terms of location and service seemed to justify the splurge. Hence we had our hopes up and counted on our Gold membership for a great experience. The hotel stood out from afar... More

Simply phenomenal. This was the first stop on my wife and I's honeymoon - a two night stay in Athens before heading to Mykonos and Santorini. We expected an above average hotel experience, but we were not prepared for what we received at the Grande Bretagne. Upon entering the beautiful lobby, we were constantly impressed during our stay. We arrived... More

We recently spent 2 nights. I can highly recommend this hotel. Everything was perfect. Meals at the roof top restaurant are a must. Fantastic food and service with a stunning view of the Acropolis. The only negative was that we had a rather small room with no view at all. The curtains needed to be kept closed.

A gem and oasis in the center of Athens. From the initial greeting by the doormen (George and Dimitri) to the personalized reception at the counter (Panos), the sumptuous decor and beautiful rooms, the breathtaking, panoramic and open air restaurant (and bar at night) on the 8th floor with it's unobstructed view of the Acropolis....everything is just so enthralling. The... More

Stayed for 2 nights in early August after a week in Paxos with our two grown-up children. Great location and easy to get to the main sites (use the Metro to get to the Acropolis - its air conditioned). There is always something satisfying about these old classic city hotels - sitting in the grand lobby enjoying the air conditioning... More

We did a one night pre-cruise stay at the hotel but arrived at lunch-time, so had plenty of time to explore the area before our cruise the next day. The location of the hotel is fantastic, right next to Parliament and we watched the changing of the guards from our bedroom balcony. It over looks one of the main squares... More

I booked a room for 4 nights at what I thought was expensive by International standards.However you do expect to pay for class. I was contacted by the Hotel, to their credit who... More

At the end of our latest Europe trip we had a few days on the island of Spetses and then 3 nights in Athens.We were told to stay at this hotel as it is near to The Acropolis and the other sites in central Athens. As I am an SPG Gold member we were upgraded to the 7th floor and... More

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights during a 3 week trip to the Greek Islands. We chose the hotel because we are Starwood Gold Members, and because of the great trip advisor reviews. I wanted to share my experience and reconfirm what most people are saying about this hotel, how great it is. ARRIVAL: When we first arrived... More
