Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Stayed for a night with my girlfriend as a surprise to her. I booked the Junior Suite and the experience was amazing. The style of the whole hotel makes you feel like royalty and, even though I do not usually travel this way, I would recommend everyone to try this out for at

My last stay was January, 2019. I was there in 2008 and anxious to see how if fared through the hotel management transitions and the “Great Recession”. It is still wonderful. From the front desk, Conceirge, waiters at breakfast, sleeping rooms, amenities and helpful attitude

The hotel is stunning with a beautiful décor and the Alexander Bar is one of the must do things. Check in was prompt and courteous. Very attentive staff overall. Rooms are nice, but slightly small and the carpet needs to go or be replaced. Location is excellent and

A fantastic hotel right in the city center of Athens. 5* hospitality at its best. The roof top restaurant is where I had one of the best meals ever. The room was spacious and the bed extra comfy. Breakfast is also served at the roof top restaurant. Great variety of Greek

"The inside rooms is just fine. No need to spend extra money on outside rooms as perhaps traffic at night could be noisy on lower floors."
"If you don’t mind the view the rooms overlooking the courtyard are very quiet."
"Choose a room on a high floor"
