We recently stayed at the Grande Bretagne in Athens, after a relaxing week in Crete. We were welcomed into an elegant, palatial hotel by a friendly hotel staff. The lobby was absolutely stunning and beautifully decorated. Our rooms were gorgeous. We were travelling with our grown children, so we had two junior suites. Both rooms had a comfortable living room with a desk, couch and television, spacious bedroom with another television, great closet space, and a full marble bathroom complete with shower and tub. We decided to dine at the Roof Garden restaurant at the hotel. Meal was expensive, but good, however the vista was exceptional. We had an unobstructed view of the Acropolis lit up in the night sky. It was magical.
This hotel is in a very nice location, close to the Parliament buildings and within walking distance to the Acropolis, Parthenon, Constitution Square and Plaka. As a side note, my daughter left her sweater and Kobo reader in the room. We realized when we were at the airport. The hotel promptly sent it to us at home by courier and items were waiting for us when we got back. We were very impressed with their professionalism, honesty and service. Kudos to Grande Bretagne. We would definitely return to Grande Bretagne.
