We weren't guests at this hotel but ventured out for dinner as our hotel was being used as a wedding venue. We dined at the rooftop garden restaurant and were treated to an exquisite evening view of the acropolis. The service was efficient, the food exquisite and the establishment kept in a manner befitting a 5 star resort. Next time... More

This hotel is exquisite. The room was beautiful and luxurious, with a courtyard view. The rooftop bar was very nice, with a view of the Acropolis. The hotel is located in a great location, within walking distance to most historic sites, museums and the Platka. There are many nice restaurants within walking distance, as well. Highly recommend if you're in... More

The Grand Bretagne is as grand as its name suggests - rooms are luxuriously furnished, if relatively small, and service is excellent, if pricey. The facilities are very good ranging from indoor and outdoor pools as well as two good restaurants. The view from rooftop is amazing.

Excellent and original oenotherapy session at GB Spa by Vasso! Rejuvenating massage with St. Simone grapes. One gets out revitalised and fresh! Vasso does a great job balancing this, with great attention at customer's needs. Recommended!Thanks!

This is the third historic hotel I've stayed in in Europe (other two being st. Reg Florence and st. Reg Rome). With the two other reference points, and even without, I can definitively say this is a fantastic property. If you're looking for world-class service, luxe photo-ready rooms (for that perfect instagram setpiece photo ;)), amazing breakfast, look no further!!!... More

This review is for the hotel only. I will submit a separate review for the restaurant (which was fantastic). We had high hopes on check in at the private Butler floor. They were kind and helpful. Our room (Deluxe King) was adequately sized for a large-city hotel, and well-appointed. The bathroom was quite large. Unfortunately, it did not go well.... More

We asked to be booked into a hotel with views of the acropolis, we were recommended and booked into a fantastic hotel with a roof garden restaurant which gave fantastic views of the acropolis floodlit at night and also views over the city and into the hills by day. The hotel rooms were peaceful and relaxing furnished in an edwardian... 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.
