Lonely Planet review
If you aspire to the best, the place to stay in Athens is – and always has been – the Grande Bretagne, right on the Syntagma square. Built in 1862 to accommodate visiting heads of state, it ranks among the grandest hotels in the world. Though its renovation is a few years distant, it still retains its old-world grandeur. There is a divine spa , and the Acropolis-view rooftop restaurant and bar are worth a visit, even if you aren’t a guest.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Grande Bretagne and selected this as one of our recommended luxury hotels in Athens.
