Great Stay in the Heart of Athens
The Hotel Grande Bretagne offered us a wonderful experience. We enjoyed our short time at the hotel very much. The cigar lounge was excellent. The breakfast buffet was spectacular! Thank you for a wonderful experience.

Best hotel in Athens
We were only at the hotel one night but it was a lovely experience. Everything was very nice and the staff was efficient. We really enjoyed the rooftop restaurant. We ate dinner and breakfast at the restaurant with the most amazing view. The proximity to attractions is unbeatable! All of our tour guides said it was the #1 hotel in Athens and I would agree.

Very Good8.0
Great views in Athens
The hotel was very nice in a perfect location. Greatest assets being the rooftop dinning and bar with a magnificent view of the acropolis. Also at breakfast we witnessed the changing of the guard at the parliament building from the roof the best possible vantage point. If not walkable virtually all the sights and events are within an inexpensive cab ride. The hotel is expensive but you knew that when you made the deal. More reasonable dinning and wine with people watching are available in easy walking distance. We had no issues with language even at the smallest cafe.

Maybe save your money and stay next door.
The location is wonderful and the view from our balcony was impressive and delightful. We had paid for butler service and upgraded our room. Evidently, we were supposed to have our own special check in. This process took much longer than if we had just checked in downstairs, which had no wait. Our room wasn't ready when we got there, which didn't bother us because our flight was earlier in the day. We paid about $100-$150 more per night than some of the other 5 stars and should have saved our money. 3 star experience with a 5 star price tag and a 5 star view. Our friends stayed at King George and were delighted. I was disappointed that we paid for butler service and didn't receive it. If we walked back into the hotel, no one would be able to call us by name.
