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.

The Hotel Grande Bretagne is probably one of the best hotels I have ever stayed in my entire life and believe me I have stayed at many. We checked in the evening around 9pm and they had live opera music going in the Winter Garden. What a welcome! Centrally located, great food

Hotel is in the best location and in a historic building. It is the hotel for diplomats, country heads and anyone who demands the highest standards in city hotels. Rooms are adequate as it is the Gym. What sets it apart though is the excelente service in all departments and the

The Hotel was truly as fabulous as ever-and I really appreciated the warm and pleasant welcome that I received. This is a luxury establishment that cares about all guests and takes the time and trouble to check how you are doing. I adored the Junior Suite I was upgraded to

"Try for that upgrade!"
"most of the rooms do not have any particulary good view, it is a City center hotel"
"Rooms at the front and side have views of the Parliament and those at the front look onto Syntagma Square"
"stay in deluxe room which offer a welcoming ambiance"
"The inside rooms is just fine. No need to spend extra money on outside rooms as perhaps traffic at night could be noisy on lower floors."
$328 - $688 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
