Description & Details of Hotel Grande Bretagne
Location. The Hotel Grande Bretagne in Athens, Greece, is a 19th-century palace facing the main Syntagma Square and adjacent to the Parliament Building. The Acropolis, the New Acropolis Museum and the labyrinthine Plaka (old town) are within 1 kilometre. Syntagma metro station is 300 metres from the hotel.
Hotel Features. Set in a palace built in 1862, locals call the Hotel Grande Bretagne the 'Royal Box'. Guests enter through rotating doors into a lobby with Corinthian columns, Persian carpets and neobaroque- style furniture.

The skylit Winter Garden is the setting for breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner with piano music. The high-ceilinged GB Corner restaurant's signature dish is Dover sole meunier. From April to October, the GB Roof Garden serves cocktails and Greek specialities from the grill.

The GB spa features a mosaic-lined indoor pool, reflexology foot baths, and treatments like hot stone massage and Oshadhi herbal wraps. The tree-fringed rooftop outdoor pool affords Acropolis views.

Guestrooms. Decorated with antique furniture, subtle cream hues, and red and gold fabrics, the Hotel Grande Bretagne's 327 guestrooms have a marble bathroom, minibar, high-speed Internet access and views of the inner courtyard or Syntagma Square.

Expert Tip. A five-minute taxi ride from the hotel, a funicular runs up to the 300-metre Lycabettus hill offering panoramic views over Athens. The open-air theatre at the summit stages concerts in summer.
