Hotel Grande Bretagne 5

Dripping in decadence, Hotel Grande Bretagne is an icon of a hotel in Athens, flaunting a prime position next to Syntagma Square and the Parliament building.

As luxurious as they come, Hotel Grande Bretagne dazzles in neo-classical splendour right in the heart of Athens. This refined bolt-hole has long-attracted discerning guests with its polished interiors and regal air, not to mention those breathtaking views over Lycabettus Hill, Syntagma Square and – best of all – the Acropolis.

Room Types

All rooms

The rooms at Hotel Grande Bretagne are as sumptuous as you would expect, bedecked in antiques, soft fabrics and billowing drapes in hues of primrose yellow or deep burgundy. Chandeliers lend a lavish touch, the suites being the most decadent of all with elaborate marble bathrooms and lashings of space to luxuriate in. Guestrooms with views of the Acropolis are, of course, the cream of the crop.

    About Hotel Grande Bretagne

    Hailing from the 19th century, Hotel Grande Bretagne oozes Old World elegance with its Beaux-Arts lobby, exquisitely decorated guestrooms and impeccable hospitality, yet the plush, state-of-the-art spa and rooftop pool bring it spectacularly into the 21st century. Treat yourself to the Grande Bretagne’s heated indoor swimming pool, before enjoying a calming spa therapy, or sprawl on a sun lounger alongside the sparkling waters al fresco, gazing out at the forested Lycabettus Hill beyond. Dotted with pretty cypress trees, this rooftop pool also boasts a conveniently placed cocktail bar – meaning you might find it a challenge to peel yourself off your lounger to see the sights of Athens; but with views of the Acropolis from the restaurant and guestrooms, you shouldn’t feel too guilty about that!
