"Roof top restaurant and bar with amazing views"
Superb hotel in the centre of Athens. Roof top bar and restaurant. Excellent service and friendly smiling staff. The Prof and I were attending a conference for two days in this wonderful hotel. Roof top pool was rather a squash and bit disappointing so spend the time exploring the city and seeing the sights absorbi the Greek culture and architecture. Advice - go to breakfast early to avoid queues. Roof top bar at 6.00 to enjoy the sun setting behind the acropolis.
This hotel is pure luxury and indulgence. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed. We had a private check in with a glass of French champagne, a nice touch. Perfect location and first class service. The breakfast was fantastic with lots of options and variety which is constantly replenished. This is our second stay at the Grande Bretagne and it was just as wonderful as the first.
"Worth it once"
We stayed here and we also stayed at the Electra Metropolis which is a two-minute walk away and, on the balance of things, I’d go back to the Metropolis over the Bretagne. That’s not a slam of this hotel (I gave them the same star rating) but between price, size of rooms, and pool view the Metropolis wins. The Bretagne, for sure, has more charm. It’s beautifully maintained but the older features/style means that the rooms are very dark (although the bathroom was by far the best I encountered anywhere in Greece). The service at the Bretagne was lovely and I do have to give credit to the pool bar staff who were unfailingly polite to one of the rudest guests I have ever seen in a hotel! But for price and pool lounging the Metropolis would be my future choice. The Bretagne is the kind of place that it’s nice to stay in once but you might not want to pay those prices too often! Little things, like burgers, were ridiculously expensive.
"Magnificent Hotel, Superb Location & Outstanding Service!"
My husband and I stayed in this hotel for 5 nights during a week trip to Greece (Athens & Santorini) and 2+ weeks in Italy. While all the hotels in which we stayed in both countries were very nice, the Hotel Grande Bretagne was superlative in every way. The staff members were especially accommodating, and the hotel is gorgeous.. Food at the 8th-floor restaurant was excellent with a stunning view of the Acropolis & Parthenon. Whether it was the concierge, the front desk staff, members of housekeeping or staff in the restaurants, every single one was so courteous, professional and genuinely nice. As a platinum guest, we appreciated the upgrade to a gorgeous suite -- you can rest assured that we'll be back and will recommend this hotel to friends and family. Thank you for a perfect stay.
"Gorgeous view of the Parthenon and delicious food"
What a beautiful view of the Acropolis at evening while eating delicious food! The service was excellent! There were 8 of us and we had the best spot in the restaurant. Wine was great. The orzo with lobster was a favorite.
