Amazing experience and perfect ending to our honeymoon. We had a bottle of champagne waiting for us upon arrival. The rooftop pool and bar is a perfect place to chill during the day away from the city rush.

Hotel is in a perfect location near shopping, good restaurants, public transit, and history.

We recommend this hotel to someone that wants a taste of luxury.

I celebrated my birthday in Athens and spent 4 nights here with my husband. This hotel is in a great location and the staff are the best. The restaurant on the rooftop has the most incredible view of the Acropolis so I enjoyed breakfast there everyday and had a very special dinner there for my birthday. The metro station for Syntagma Square is right there next to the hotel so it is very convenient. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: Get a room with a view of the Acropolis if it is available.

What a beauty. My husband and I checked into this wonderful hotel as our first stop in our visit to Greece. Check-in was amazing. The lobby and surrounding rooms are simply stunning Old world decor and rich lush furnishings. We were upgraded without asking to beautiful room with a small balcony overlooking city and the Acropolis. From the balcony I also watched the changing of the guards. It was a delightful beginning...very exciting. That evening we went to GB Roof Garden Restaurant. Wow. So elegant yet casual. The Acropolis was completely lit up in glory. The wine was great the food was great and the ambience amazing. We breakfasted there the next morning and it was wonderful as well. There was a bit of confusion when departing as our taxi never arrived, however, the manager interceded. I thank this hotel and its staff for setting the pace for our vacation to Greece. A great hotel experience.

Room Tip: room facing the Acropolis

When in Athens this hotel is a must stay. Every trip to our family on the island always is complimented by our stay in this Grand Hotel. Our morning breakfast amongst so much history is breathtaking. Delicious beautiful food in the most amazing location. Rooms fit for royalty and service number one.

I stayed in Grande Bretagne in July, the hotel's main plus point in Location Location Location, could not ask for a mote centrally located hotel with practically all the local attraction being within walking distance.
The good thing about the hotel
1. Excellent staff - The hotel staff is very helpful and extremely prompt
2. Butler Service - Excellent butler service, the butlers were highly responsive and helpful. We literally did not do any planning and arrived at the hotel, the butlers(specially Panos and Georges (I cant recall her name completely) were superb and practically planned our whole itinerary even to the extend of packing lunch boxes (as my wife is vegetarian)
3. Location - The hotel is practically walking distance from all the main attraction of the city

Cons
1. Room Sizes - The regular room sizes is really small
2. Room Layout - although I have been to other smaller room hotels, the size over there have not distressed me maybe because of layout they follow. For example when they are offering a flat screen you do not require a huge tv rack in the room. I think the hotel either desperately need a renovation or major changes in room layout
3. Breakfast - we had a B&B deal, the break fast had little no variety for the 5 days I stayed there, the buffet items never changed and were the same all those days (even on weekend)

Overall I think hotel is a great place if you are looking for a central location and great service. The property has an old world charm which is good but I guess this charm works very well with bigger rooms and it requires some orientation for its room layout.

Where can I start but with simply a majestic diamond amongst a city of history!! Our first trip to Greece, and our first to Athens and what a way to finish our month long holiday than at the Hotel Grande Bretagne. A jewel indeed from the first moment we stepped into the lobby to check in and finally to our amazing suite. The rooms are just breathless filled with class, elegance and style. The service impeccable and nothing left unturned. We were treated like royalty from the moment we arrived through to checkout. The hotel in such a perfect location, walking distance to all the wonderful shopping, Attica, Syntagma Square and much much more. The views from our rooftop bar and restaurant simply can't be explained. Waking up and having breakfast with the Acropolis each morning in our sight, and then dinner at night at sunset, once can only dream of these views. The pool floor also just amazing and its views, the bar fantastic and the staff so very helpful and courteous at all times. We were certainly made feel very welcome. We can't thank you enough Hotel Grande Bretagne for making our stay a memorable one!

Room Tip: Definitely a suite!!
