Breakfast was okay, what you would expect of any hotel. However, what really made breakfast amazing was the incredible view this restaurant has to offer! I fell in love with the view and took the most incredible pictures. would highly recommend for a light breakfast and some photography.

The view is superb and the restaurant very smart (dress code mean no shorts). The sommellier's wine suggestion was lovely but the food was nothing special considering how expensive the place is. The service is polite but not special

So we had 9 hr layover which was enough for us to do some sightseeing around Athens. We read about this place before we got there. After 3 hours of intense walking up the Acropolis hill, during a hot summer day, we definitely needed a few drinks before heading back to the airport. The hotel itself is very elegant. We... More

I have been dining in the restaurant for about 10 years and have seen a succession of chefs come and go. Some have been good but none have been great like the current chef Asterios Koustoudis who has been here for 5 years and continues to produce Michelin star quality food. Tonight I had grilled asparagus with quail egg, rocket... More

At the well known Grande Bretagne hotel, you will find this chic rooftop restaurant with impressive view across the Parliament and the Acropolis. The cuisine is mediterranean and modern. A good bet for a business lunch.

My family and I have talked about our three odd experiences at this restaurant. We loved the food and ambience, hence our going three times during our trip, but at the same time, the restaurant supervisor (or more accurately the bouncer/intimidator out front is a distraction). Each night, we witnessed the "restaurant supervisor" get in three altercations per night with... More

Food good but portions small. My husband ordered pasta with vegetables and we couldn't find any vegetables. Very expensive for so little food. Service good but watch out for your handbags ladies. Mine got stolen. Whether from ladies room or right from the seat next to me it was such a negative experience especially in such a supposedly fancy hotel.... 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.
