This is my second review of this hotel having visited some time ago. I am pleased to reiterate the Grande Bretagne did not disappoint. The hospitality, service, fiendliness and competitiveness is nothing short of outstanding! The service on reception, (particularly Marianthi) was exceptional - all employees went out of their way to make us feel special. Also of note, The barman at the pool bar was very knowledgeable and made exceptionally good bespoke cocktails. The rooms are better than most Four Seasons. Despite the Greek situaton we would suggest bypassing the expensive hotels of London and Paris etc and come to Athens where you will genuinely feel appreciated and it will not cost the moon. My only slight quibble was that the Spa water dispenser cups and used bathing towels were not attended to, and removed from the Spa pool/aroma sauna areas for at least two hours on our Sunday night stay between 6.30 and 8.30pm - although the cleaner did arrive as we left. It was also clear the jacuzzi and aroma showers were not functioning as they should? Given the excellent reception and butler service though who is to quibble. Also despite the quibble, the Spa still is genuinely amazing and a great place to pass a few hours.
