Elegant, old world style hotel located in the center of Athens on Constitution Square (Syntagma Square) features bronze & crystal chandeliers, dark wood and marble. Top floor restaurant looks out at the Acropolis and Parthenon. At night the Acropolis is illuminated and the sun, as it rises over the hills in the morning, shines on the Parthenon - a spectacular view. At least one dinner and breakfast in the top floor restaurant are a "must" at this hotel. The old market with all types of shops and cafes is within easy walking distance. There is also an upscale shopping area with stores such as Prada and Luis Vuitton intermingled with outdoor cafes.

Rooms are elegant. Some of the rooms have step-in tubs with a hand held shower. Other rooms have a tub plus a separate walk-in shower. If you prefer or require a shower make sure you specifiy when you book.

Meals in the hotel are relatively expensive: however, the are many other more causal choices in the area, if you prefer. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Cab access to and from the hotel was very easy and relatively inexpensive in clean, new model cars.

have been staying in GB since its renovation of 2003 and still think its the best. Plaza NY, Dorchester London, George V, PAris, Hassler Roma are among the best hotels in the world but in my opinion GB beats them all. unbeatable location, full of luxury, classy rooms, extremely comfy beds, friendly staff and marvellous service. Alexander cigar lounge with its cigars and single malts is a must for aficionados. room service though needs some improvement in terms of food quality. four stars to room service and five stars to everything else.

Room Tip: room with a balcony facing Syntagma sq.

I love everything about this Hotel, It has everything a visitor to Athens would want.
It has friendly staff who make you feel at home, it has great restaurants, one with outstanding views of the Acropolis,it is central to everything, and in walking Distance to all you want to visit or see in Athens, with the subway also next to the hotel. It has history and is legendary, but most of all it has a heart.Now is the time to visit Greece, and the Weather is Beautiful. has a balcony and big bathroom. It's wonderful! I enjoy the nights there! The best view, the best location, the best service and the best comfort. I love Grande Bretagne, the roof garden which has the best view at dinner, it's Luxury Collection

Room Tip: Deluxe rooms are the best, great balcony and a really nice view.

Grande Bretagne is no secret to experienced travelers. It has the best location, the best food, the best staff, and the most comfortable beds of any hotel in the country, and should not be missed by anyone going to Athens. We were fortunate that our cruise line had an arrangement with the GB for a pre-cruise stay. Spectacular cruise, but the land arragements were every bit as nice.

Room Tip: Any room in the hotel will be better than the best room in any other hotel in the city. You cannot go wrong.

The Grande Bretagne hotel is located at the very heart of Athens, the Sintagma Square. It’s one of the most famous classy hotels in the city and very popular among Americans. The Grande Bretagne is in fact ‘little America’. Because of all the Americans you feel like you’re in the USA. Staff was friendly, but I always felt some kind of distance as if they were just playing a role.
The room was a little small but the bathroom on the other hand, was perfect! I think the Grande Bretagne bathroom had the best Rainshower I’ve ever experienced!!
First day at breakfast, it was very busy, we even had to wait for 10 minutes until there was a table availabl which was no problem for us. But we came in together with an older couple and there was no place for them to sit while waiting.
The breakfast itself on the other hand was great. There was a warm part, a cold part, a large variety of juices, a diet part, cereals, break, sweets....
We had a cocktail at the rooftop bar on the last night of our stay, which is a must because you have the best view over the city with the Akropolis on the background.
The pool on the roof was not heated, but ok for the summer. This is a big plus for the hotel, because not a lot of city hotels have a pool. Another plus for this hotel: welness facilities are complimentary.
One remark: House keeping waking us up at 8o’clock when we were planning to sleep a little longer that morning, was a big downer. But hey, they’re only human too.
