5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Our luggage took too long to be delivered to the room. Otherwise we had an excellent time.

Very nicely appointed hotel with a friendly staff. The view from the roof top restaurant was the best part

My wife and I stayed there for 5 days, It was a wonderful experience and I would highly recommend the hotel to anyone planning a trip to Athens. We where given the five star treatment, everything about the holtel was appealing, and the staff was so professional in all areas of employment, we had a wonderful stay

Nice hotel. But, a delivery staff sent our luggage to a wrong room. Not Good.

The Hotel has been refurbished in the past 10 years or so and it is back to its magnificent grandeur. The whole place is luxurious without being stuffy. The staff is superb, from the janitor carrying a ladder to the maitre d' at the Rooftop Restaurant, We had a delightful stay and hope to come back again soon.

Our 5-nights stay at Hotel Grande Bretagne was comfortable, convenient and memorable. Pretty much everything met our expectations. Would love to stay there again.

Restaurant on roof top is spectacular, a must go. Lobby bar is old world elegance....very nice! Wish we stayed longer

Hotel was perfect in every way. Concierge arranged pick up at the airport, personal tour of Acropolis with knowledgable English-speaking guide, maps of the city and metro, tips about getting around. Front desk customer service excellent from check-in, exchange of money, help with wifi. Pool and pool bar/restaurant was great for both overall service, drink and food quality. Breakfast buffet was amazing and the view spectacular. Lobby bar/restaurant was excellent as well. I didn't use the spa but I heard from friends living in Athens that it was top notch. I give them high ratings and I tend to be quite critical.

The Grande Bretagne is the epitome of a classic hotel. The location is unsurpassed, the rooms are spacious and well-appointed, and the staff is friendly, very competent, and prompt. The view from the rooftop restaurant and bar is unsurpassed.

The location is the best is near of everything!!! The hotel have all that you nead, having breakfast seeing the parthenon is amazing!!!

I was there to visit family and friends. The hotel was magnificent, much much more hotel than I needed, if i had been traveling with a Princess it would have been adequate.

Arrived 9:30am, expected to wait for check-in but was immediately given rooms. Upgraded to Butler Floor (don't waste money booking this upgrade) Concierge services mark up excursions, tickets and taxi trips. Their advice was not always accurate. Overall, hotel and staff wonderful. Location directly center to everything you want to see. Rooms beautiful/elegant. Over-priced breakfast in keeping with ***** hotel. Roof-top bar has must-see view. Hired taxi driver for two days - private tour outside of city to see Corinth and Sounio ruins and beach. Better fit for our schedule than group tour. Plan to walk Monastiraki flea market only on Sunday morning. Great experience and local character. Breakfast in local street cafes much better than near hotel.

This was an excellent hotel recommended by a friend. We always stay in good hotels when out of town, but have never seen such a classy hotel with excellent service. The view of the roof top restaurant is truly breathtaking. We strongly recommend this hotel to all and will definitely go back there on our future trips to Athens. Athen is a beautiful city with very nice people to visit. When planning a trip do not forget about visiting as many islands as you can. The three small islands we visited in one day were so beautiful.

The Hotel is Ideally situated for the traveler to athens the rooms are Increadable but maintanance is poor. Watch out for the "upgrade" we were to get a suite with buttler and got a smaller suite without buttler, no refund of cost difference because it was an "upgrade" to what?
