Romantic, Great View and Food

Only issue is that the menu is "international", not much in there if you want traditional Greek food. Otherwise excellent quality, service and atmosphere.

We had been touring around Athens for most of the day and wanted somewhere for something to eat. Our last sightseeing stop was the changing of the guard and the Hotel Grande Bretagne is just there so we decided that's where we would go. Good choice. It just so happened that afternoon tea was being served so we ordered that.... More

Lovely oasis of calm and elegance for a welcome cup of tea after a busy day of sightseeing in the hot streets of Athens. Great service and delicious food.

We went for a drink in the stunningly beautiful and historic hotel. (Look in to its history before you go.) The bar, and dining area is so very elegant and a drink is a great excuse to enjoy the ambiance.

Had lunch today, and it was superb. Their riff on salad Niçois, and it was spectacular. Not inexpensive, but delicious.

It was supposed to be a top place for tea in Athens. However, the tea was not top, the scones were more like muffins. The prices were too expensive

I had afternoon tea in Grande Bretagne and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was accompanied by scones, cake, sandwiches etc served in a beautiful winter garden. The highlight was the pianist! It was quite expensive though.

What used to be GB Corner is now the hotel shop. Most reviews seem to be about the tea room - the Winter Garden - which is not somewhere to eat out unless you want high tea, in which case it's hard to beat (if rather expensive) if only for the ambience. PAB Athens

I would never usually pick a 5 star hotel in Athens for lunch because of the price. However, I treated myself on this occasion and I was impressed. The cost of a sandwich here is around 16 Euro and a coffee 7 Euro so yes, very expensive. However, the food was delicious, beautifully presented and it was an enormous portion.... 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.
