Grande Bretagne Hotel


Grande Bretagne Hotel

Athens City

Occupying one corner of Syntagma Square, Hotel Grande Bretagne overlooks the Parliament and the National Gardens. Syntagma Metro station is right by the hotel entrance. Founded in 1874, the period décor is intact, from the Winter Garden, with its stained-glass ceiling and potted palms, to the 18th-century tapestry in the Alexander Bar. Dandelion yellow corridors are lined with antique etchings, paintings and prints that take you on a fascinating journey through the history of Athens. After an €87 million makeover in 2004, this palatial hotel won’t disappoint the most discerning visitor. Behind the neoclassical façade all accommodations feature sumptuous fabrics, original artwork and restored antiques from Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Each of the 320 guest rooms offers enchanting views of the hotel courtyard or a spellbinding panorama of the city's timeless landmarks. Hotel facilities include two distinctive restaurants, two swimming pools (one indoor, one outdoor), a fully equipped gym and the multi-awarded Grande Bretagne ESPA Spa. Visit the picturesque GB Roof Garden Restaurant for the finest Mediterranean cuisine (& the view!) or the Winter Garden for an afternoon high tea. The roof-top outdoor swimming pool provides a cool respite from Athens' summer sun. With picture-perfect backdrops of Lycabettus Hill, it's hard to determine which is more gratifying: the refreshing water or the uplifting views. With breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament, lush Lycabettus Hill or the original Olympic Stadium, the multi-awarded 5 star Hotel Grande Bretagne offers an unrivaled perspective of Athens' mythical history.
