“Incredible”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

The name includes the description of a grand place.  I stayed here 44 years ago as a wide eyed teenager.  Now I have stayed as a wide eyed adult.  This is not an overdone hotel.  It is in perfect taste from the entry by a wide revolving door, well selected decor, to crisp bed linens and fluffy towels.
The final bill included the taxi to the airport which  made leaving very easy without having to get more Euros exchanged.
 The Spa is incredible.  A  most beautiful facility. With an amethyst shower.
The dining on the roof with Greek wine, lovely wait staff, delicious food for breakfast and dinner, and the view of the Acropolis could not have been improved

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

We spent four nights at The Grande Bretagne prior to our cruise departure from Athens. I can honestly say that our stay was flawless. I received a pre arrival email several weeks ago giving specifics on the hotel and services offered. Several days prior to arrival I received another email advising me of the upcoming transportation strike (all taxis and public transportation).
Several solutions were offered turning what could have been a "stab in the dark" experience into a smooth, stress-free arrival.
Every single aspect from that point forward can only be described as superlative. The only thing that rivaled the view from the rooftop bar/restaurant was the food and service.
Can't wait to come back.

Fantastic location, right in the heart of Athens, with views to the Acropolis from the rooftop bar and restaurant, and greek rioters outside Parliament! The rooftop pool is tiny but a lovely spot to sit in the shade and enjoy a quiet drink.
Service is professional and courteous, and the room was very nicely appointed. We only stayed one night, wished it could have been longer!

...and I'm very, VERY picky. The character, history, location, amenities, service, courtesy, pride of staff, food, drink, and more, make this a very special hotel. You will be at the best hotel in Athens if you stay at the Hotel Grande Bretagne.

Room Tip: Courtyard facing is nice and quiet and not inferior.

The hotel is gorgeous and the staff is very friendly. The location is just across Parliament with a great restaurant on the rooftop of the Acropolis at night. The restaurant was excellent. The rooms are a little smaller, but the spa amenitites are out of this world. The indoor pool includes aromatherapy rooms, saunas, etc. We ordered room service for breakfasts and the service was very prompt. Overall, a great experience and would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone that wants a great location and hotel amenitites. The beds and pillows were so comfortable that we didn't even want to get out of bed!

Great location. Hotel has the charm and elegance and service that befits a grande dame. A large room, well equipped.
The staff was superb. The concierge knowledgeable and oh so helpful! Food is expensive.
Try the Spa. Beautifully done and a great way to relax after that long journey.

Room Tip: Ask for a room off Constitution Avenue

Our room was spacious and the bedding was very comfortable. The bathroom was very large with a tub and a separte shower. But the toilet was situated oddly - just a few inches from the wall so that it felt cramped. Overall, elegant atmosphere with great service. The roof top bar/restaurant is a must see, with a fantastic view of the Acropolis. Make sure to see it at night. Dinner was expensive but worth every penny.
