Athens, Greece

Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel

With breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament, lush Lycabettus Hill or the original Olympic Stadium, the multi-awarded five-star Hotel Grande Bretagne offers an unrivaled perspective of Athens’ mythical history. Located in the heart of the city since 1874, the hotel is within walking distance of exclusive shopping areas, museums and the business district. With meticulous attention to detail, the rooms and suites marry charming old-world elegance with state-of-the-art facilities, whereas the 58 suites enjoy additional benefits, including personalized butler service. One can easily transport back in time to experience one of the many nearby UNESCO sites, including the Acropolis – visible from the hotel but more spectacular in person; the monasteries of Meteora, where 11th-century monks settled on nearly inaccessible sandstone peaks known as “columns of the sky”; the shrine of Asklepios – god of medicine – in a small valley in the Peloponnesus where the temple, Tholos, and Theatre date back to the 4th century and are considered amongst the purest masterpieces of Greek architecture. When sightseeing concludes, visit the hotel’s picturesque Roof Garden Restaurant for the finest Mediterranean cuisine, the Winter Garden for an afternoon of high tea, and the exceptional spa to relax and unwind. The hotel concierge team are a wealth of knowledge, who are always ready to unlock the secret treasures of Athens.
