Hotel Grande Bretagne Athens

Occupying a corner of Syntagma Square, the Hotel Grande Bretagne boasts fantastic views of the Parliament, National Gardens and the elevated Parthenon just a 20-minute walk away. Founded in 1874, the hotel has preserved its neoclassical façade and many decorative features.

Hotel Grande Bretagne’s 262 rooms and 58 suites are traditional in style with sumptuous fabrics, original architecture and antique furnishings. High ceilings allow for plenty of natural light and superb views of the city’s major landmarks.

Indulge in a lavish breakfast at the GB Roof Garden, which transforms for dinner to a scenic setting where guests can admire the illuminated Parthenon over Mediterranean/Asian cuisine. Don’t miss High Tea in the opulent palm-fronded Winter Garden.

Why we recommend Hotel Grande Bretagne

“Founded in 1874, Hotel Grande Bretagne has preserved its neoclassical façade and many decorative features, making her a Grande Dame with plenty of history and luxury to offer. Activities here can be quintessentially Greek: sip on cocktails at Alexander’s Bar terrace while watching the changing of the guards in Syntagma Square below; enjoy a romantic dinner at the GB Roof Garden restaurant terrace where you also get uninterrupted views of the Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill; and don’t miss the afternoon tea amid the floral displays of the Winter Garden.”
