“Beautiful luxury hotel, great location.”
Reviewed December 16, 2013 via mobile

My wife and I stayed here on the first leg of our anniversary trip. We are SPG members and that is how we chose this hotel.

This hotel is very beautiful and completely worthy of its place in the SPG Luxury Collection. The staff is very attentive and the rooms are elegant and comfortable.

The location is great, almost all the main attractions of Athens are within walking distance.

If you are looking for the pinnacle of luxury while in Athens, I highly recommend staying at this hotel

Just remembering some highlights of Greece now that I have come across the Heart of our stay in ATHENS. VIEWS TO KILL FOR - Have great view from my home but unfortunately it's not the Acropolis. All aspects of Hotel Great and truly suited for a home away from home. All family enjoyed this Great Hotel. Love to all the courteous staff and hope to return SOON.

The Hotel Grande Bretagne was such a gorgeous and welcoming sight after a long flight from CA. All the decor was elegant without being pretentious. The staff was efficient and friendly, making us feel relaxed in this beautiful property. Our room was spacious and the bathroom absolutely lovely. A soak in the large bathtub was really appreciated after so many flight hours. My best memory of this wonderful hotel will be the rooftop restaurant, where the view of the Acropolis was breathtaking!

The hotel matches expectations. The room was wonderful, large bathroom, beautiful balcony and nice furnishings.... elegant hallways, you can imagine the ball skirts just passing their ways to the marble stairwells... Spa was nice, not huge, but complete, various steam rooms and an indoor pool, heated just right.
The restaurant has an amazing view and the breakfast buffet had a good selection, food could have been hotter but we did not request it to be warmed up. The service was very good. At night the view changes, but still amazing and great drink selection, along with snacks to match.
Staff was very nice on all levels, check-in - maids - room service and restaurant.

Room Tip: We were on the fifth floor with a balcony, perfect. Beautiful french doors to open for fresh air, w...

The moment you walk in the GB you'll be struck by the sheer oppulent style of the place. Remarkable marble clad lobby that sets the tone for the place. The bar is very nice, quite a 'club' feel to the place. No expense spared when the place was refurbished a few years ago.

Stayed in a beautiful room, overlooking the Square and Parliament, spacious and peaceful, given the proximity to the busy streets outside. Another tranquil area is the rooftop pool, small but perfectly formed and so quiet. Nice to relax up there on a hot day. The GB has a great spa too.

Breakfast in the rooftop restaurant was a treat. Stunning views of the Acropolis.

Overall a wonderful luxury hotel, the best in Athens I'd imagine.
