No title - expert review
Rest on custom-made silk ottomans in the lobby; drink tea from gold-leafed porcelain in the atrium; call your personal butler 24 hours a day from your room - the landmark Grande Bretagne, built in 1842, stands head and shoulders above other luxury hotels in Athens. The guest list includes more than ...

Athens' answer to The Ritz, this historic grand hotel was built in 1842 as a private residence and converted into a hotel three decades later. Since then - even before the 18-month, $100-million renovation that downsized the room numbers and upgraded the public spaces in preparation for the 2004 Oly...

Housed in a really beautiful and stylish building, it offers unique views of the Parthenon from its upper floor rooms.

The rooftop pool and terrace are closed from mid September through mid April, weather dependent.The Hotel Grande Bretagne is a bit of a departure for a Greek luxury hotel: rather than some sprawling compound out on a rock by the Aegean, this one is a Victorian mansion right in the bustling heart of ...

Nothing is grander than the Grande Bretagne. - user review
I admit it, I am a Starwood loyalist and a Luxury Collection junkie, but this hotel takes the cake. It is truly the finest hotel in the portfolio. I have stayed here twice and both times had a perfect experience. From the speedy room service to the breath taking views of the Acropolis, there is noth...

The hotel staff was very attentive & helpfull, expecially Despina one of the concierge staff. The accomodations were very nice (great job with the renovation).

Terrible service - user review
We arrived at 2:00 p.m. and waited 30 minutes in line to learn that our rooms were not ready. We were told to check back after 5:00 p.m. Our luggage was sitting outside with hundreds of other bags unattended to until we went back and retrieved them. On the plus side, our room (when finally ready) wa...

This is exactly what a 5 hotel should be. Newly renovated & right at Syntagma Square. Nothing to complain about this hotel. Service is first class & location is excellent. Pricing is exorbitant!
