The rooftop restaurant has a STUNNING view and is one of the best breakfasts in the city. They are very accommodating, and we found many mornings were actually one of the best meals of the day. Staff is great. Food is wonderful. View is amazing. The dinner was not bad, we had the first night - but I was so...

We stayed at the amazing Hotel Grande Bretagne for 2 nights to begin our Greek vacation. The hotel was beautiful, room was very good size and quiet, looking out on an inner courtyard. Bed was very comfortable, and bathroom was elegant with a great shower. Our favorite part of this hotel was the magnificent view of the Acropolis from the...

In a city where you cannot help noticing how life is difficult for the locals, the Hotel de Grande Bretagne is an island of luxury. On your balcony facing the famous Constitution square you will witness every hour the change of the guards on the steps of the Parliament. Location can not be bettered, especially at night when the Acropolis...

Make sure to check out the pool and saunas downstairs! Amazing experience and good neighborhood. We stayed 2 nights and had amazing views of the Acropolis. Area around is very safe and easy to get to other places!

Very nice traditional hotel. Had a view of the Acropolis from our room. We had a suite with a separate living room. There is an 8th floor restaurant that has fantastic view of the Acropolis especially at night. The dinner we had was very good. No negatives

We had two nights here. Hotel has fascinating history. Great décor, very busy. Reception staff generally good. restaurant OK - more casual than I expected. Rooms were as one would expect. There is a historical tour of the hotel which seemed really interesting, but we missed it. Great location - our balcony looked over the guards marching outside the parliament....

This hotel is gorgeous, in a great location, with one of the best views around of the Acropolis from the Rooftop restaurant and bar. Starwood has maintained the historical beauty of this building while providing modern amenities. The spa looks amazing. I wish I had more time to take advantage of their services.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel in two rooms. The rooms are antique-y, old world charming. The view from the rooftop restaurant is unparalleled. Location is also fantastic. Only criticism is that the food at the lobby bar is quite expensive.

We felt this hotel was a bit "stuffy." Very nice but also felt pretentious. Guests could generally be described as fancy American old geezers. As a couple in our late 20s, we didn't fit in. Amazing breakfast at their rooftop restaurant with even more amazing views. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the courtyard. You don't make a...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
