Upgrade subject to availability. Click here for complete terms and conditions..

Witness to Athens’ singular mix of old and new, Hotel Grande Bretagne is a gateway to the vivid sights and sounds that capture the unmatched spirit of Europe’s oldest capital. Located at the corner of the impressive Syntagma Square, the hotel offers uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, while the ritual changing of the Evzone guard in front of the Parliament building occurs virtually on its doorstep.

The rooms are appointed with the finest furnishings including a choice of a king-size or two single signature Luxury Collection beds topped with multiple pillows and cloud-soft duvets. Warm color themes of soft creams and taupes make their way into the elegant window treatments and plush carpeting. Pull back the swagged draperies and discover lovely views of our courtyard. The indulgent wall-to-wall marble bathroom features a vanity counter, separate bathtub, and shower. Thoughtfully designed with fog-resistant and lighted magnifying mirrors, every bathroom offers pure cotton bathrobes and slippers, along with pampering premium bath amenities.

Unlike any other setting in Athens, the GB Roof Garden invites guests to soak in the views of some of the most important treasure troves in history. Enjoy the cooling breeze while sitting down to a delightful Mediterranean lunch. Under a deep blue sky, consider such choices as the beef carpaccio à la plancha with beetroot salad and mango vinaigrette appetizer, followed by the risotto fumé with smoked mozzarella. At night, the glittering cityscape provides a dazzling backdrop for such superb dishes as duck breast with smoked potato puree and sautéed snow peas with hazelnut oil.
