My wife and I were staying at the sister hotel the King George which is located next door to the Grande Bretagne and decided to have drinks in the roof top bar to see the night time view of the Acropolis; we were not disappointed by either. After looking at the menu we also decided to stay there for dinner... More

Having our breakfast here as part of our hotel stay, we were spoilt daily by the beautiful views of the Acropolis, and also of Athens. Breakfast spread is good. Staff are very friendly.

We visited last week and had a family dinner. As it is located in the 8th floor in the most central square of Athens, the view leaves you breathless on arrival. The staff is very welcoming and kind. The cocktails are unique and so creative. The soup of the day was a fantastic squash soup and the meats were of... More

My wife and I visited the GB Roof Garden in January 2017 based on recommendations from an Aegean Airlines magazine. The Roof Garden was fortunately glazed in due to the cold weather, but he view of Acropolis across Plaka was stunning in the evening. The staff prepared excellent cocktails and were very professional and entertaining. Considering the magnificent ambience the... More

Whether day or night, this is well worth a visit to enjoy a glass of wine, food and the view. Why not sit for a couple of hours and enjoy the sun setting behind the Acropolis.

Standing at the Roof Garden of the Grande Bretagne, we looked with awe at this historically significant site that was finally right there in front of us but which the Athenians take for granted because they see it every day. At night the ancient citadel of Acropolis looks majestic all lit up in the clear night sky and it was... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
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.
