THis hotel is truly grand and Location is fantastic. It is a very British (Grande Bretagne aka Great Britain). Awesome spa, excellent cigar lounge, and great view of the acropolis. Breakfast is wonderful. Con: Depending on your starwood status internet is 16 euro per day for 3 devices or 5 euro for one. However, it is free in the lobby.

What a truly beautiful hotel! Pricey, but worth every penny. Nothing but pure elegance and class as soon as you walk through their doors... Dark woods, classic Greek design, white gold color scheme with rich reds, pinks, and browns, classical music playing, fresh flowers that you can smell everywhere... Our room (their basic room) was small, but still luxurious. This... More

This is truly a "Grand Hotel”; stunning building and decor, fantastic location and a great history. I had a deluxe suite on the first floor which is nice and spacious even if it looks on the inner courtyard; the high ceiling, no direct sunlight and no view whatsoever makes it a bit weird however. I was given no notice that... More

The location is perfect for seeking the major highlights of Athens - we were lucky enough to have a nice terrace and a gorgeous view of the Acropolis. Within minutes you're in the Plaka (old town) and could easily walk to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum etc. Athens itself has major history but isn't a pretty city (all concrete, little green,...

Give me the Ritz.. The hotel is beautiful in an a old world charm kinda way, but the room felt tired. I did not feel the service level equaled its high price and it needed more restaurant options. The concierge and bellman all seemed too busy to help you. The restaurant for dinner was good, the breakfast was great and... More

This is a grand hotel admittedly. I stayed there 15 years ago when it was a Grand Hotel of old world charm....cannot beat the location, along with George V Hotel on old Constitution Square...near the Plaka, good views from the roof hotel restaurant [good food, extremely expensive prices - but great view and so-so service]; the hotel had Butler service...

Ok, so to be honest the only reason that I agreed to go to Athens was because we were going to be very close (going to Hydra) and my daughter is a fan of mythology. I'd heard that Athens was dirty and grimy and not much fun to hang around, and that seems to be fairly accurate. However, the Hotel... More

This had to be one of the best hotels we've ever visited! The restaurant on the top had a view of the Acropolis, the food in both restaurants was outstanding and healthy, the service perfect, and everyone in the entire City was helpful toward tourists. There was a spa and indoor pool in the hotel and the location on the... More

Stayed at the Grande Bretagne for four days from 31st May until 4th June 2014 with my wife. Obviously the best hotel in Athens in regard to location - fantastic view of the Acropolis from the 8th floor restaurant - food and wine menu as well as service and friendliness. What more can you ask for.... Yes and of course,... More

Without doubt the GB is the best located hotel in Athens, facing Syntagma Square and just across the road from Parliament, an easy walk to the main shopping(both tourist and local) areas, walking distance to the Acropolis and the kinky little streets around it. I've been staying there since 1975, although this was our first visit for four years. It... More
