The hotel is very nice, but in an antique style so make sure you understand that. It's within walking distance of the Acropolis and the Parthenon and most other sites and is located in a square with many outside restaurants, however the rooftop restaurant is great too with a clear view of all of Athens including the Acropolis. We mapped...

A grand hotel in structure, offering an upmarket, plush interior design. Staff, despite what I had in the the blogs prior to booking, were quite friendly & efficient. Breakfast, with a view to the Acropolis, was plentiful & fresh. The spa, with a small weight/running/ machines room, is excellent, no charge to hotel guests. In addition the spa boasts a...

This Hotel is fantastic! It is very well situated in the centre of town, in walking distance to the Acropolis and Plaka district, plus all the good shopping areas. The minute you walk into this hotel, you feel relaxed, from its 5 star service to the ambience of the place. The Day Spa down below is worth a visit with...

We loved this hotel! The concierge and butler service was excellent!!!! Everything was excellent. We stayed over new years and watched fireworks from our huge patio over the Acropolis. Epic! The restaurant has excellent food and the breakfast was typical for a five-star hotel with the exception of no champagne. This is the place to stay in Athens. We loved...

We stayed at this hotel after a luxury cruise and it was absolutely fabulous. I wasn't feeling very well and the Butler brought me some hot tea and some aspirin. The restaurant was fantastic, the butler service was amazing. I loved it it was close to everything. The concierge was extremely helpful in finding us great vegetarian restaurants. I would...

A lovely luxury property right on Syntagma Square. Pool deck with restaurant and bar, beautiful views of the Acropolis, your own patio overlooking both - and a rooftop restaurant that not only has great food and drinks, but a view that beats any in Athens. We loved our stay. Efharistó.

A+ across the Board! Location, service, rooms, view & hotel restaurant were all perfect for our family of four vacation. The concierge was spot on with restaurant recommendations, however, you can't beat their rooftop restaurant, bar & free breakfast. Would love to go back!

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights in December 2016. There were four of us - husband, wife and 2 grown up boys, so we booked 2 rooms. We were on a short holiday break to Greece as a family and were visiting Athens and Santorini. For the Athens hotel, we couldn't have made a better choice then Grand...

Upon learning I was staying at the Grande Bretagne, multiple friends and colleagues sung its praises. Perhaps that raised expectations too high, or perhaps the superlative service experience we had just had at another hotel created an impossible comparison, but both my husband and I would not return. The room was beautiful. The view from the rooftop is stunning. And...

Excellent hotel, services and location. The hotel is in the middle of everything, it's classy, and has two wonderful food outlets. One is the roof top restaurant and the other one is in the lobby. The spa is also magnificent

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.
