Excellent Athens Luxury hotel

The total refurbishment of this luxury property is magnificent, and worth the experience. Make sure you dine on the roof top restaurant, with the best views, and culinary experience in Athens.

The GB corner is the classic Syntagma choice for a high end lunch. The food is excellent and the service impecable. The pork chop is still the best I ever ate and the fisherman's salad a nice light lunch. Prices are high but eating there is a well worth it indulgence.

Amazing! The food, the view, the location, the service! I simply loved this hotel! From breakfast to dinner, the view of the Acropolis from the 7th floor restaurant is breathtaking!

GB Corner is super! Don't miss a chance to have dinner, afternoon tea or spa here. The roof restaurant with views to the ackropolis is romantic, charming, great service, and a special event.

I am not sure if GB Corner is where we had tea. But I am sure that tea at the Grande Bretagne is a must. Especially after w long afternoon at the museum. A delightful way to feel indulged.

Had a drink at the roof top bar one night. The selection is great and the drinks themselves exquisite with a great view over the city and the Parthenon. Would definitely visit again!

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

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.
