The Hotel Grande Bretagne is a luxury city hotel in Greece. It is one of the most luxurious in southern Europe. Situated right in the heart of Athens 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 unrivalled perspective of Athens’ mythical history.
This 1874 built stone building with marble and wood is in the heart of the city on Constitution Square. Rooms, though a bit small, set the tone with restored antiques and very elegant marble baths. Suites come with butler service and Gilchrist & Soames bathroom amenities.
Decorated in Art Deco style, GB Corner serves Greek specialties, while its rooftop garden bar offers views of the Acropolis. Enjoy sitting back and relaxing here while watch the changing of the guard or unwind with a martini at Alexander’s Bar, under an eighteenth-century tapestry of Alexander the Great. Lounge around the pool or get pampered at the spa. However you choose to spend your days here I guarantee you will be in the lap of comfort and luxury!
The hotel is now part of “The Luxury Collection” hotel chain, managed by the American company Starwood Hotels & Resorts and owned by LAMPSA HELLENIC HOTELS S.A. Definately a place to stay if you are thinking of traveling to Athens!
