The Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel, presides over Syntagma Square in Athens.  Established in 1874 to host heads of state and delegations on official visits to Athens, the Hotel Grande Bretagne’s eternally elegant reputation for palatial public rooms, regally-appointed suites, unparalleled views of the Parthenon and, above all, consummate service, now shines across three centuries.


To stay here, no matter how briefly, is to share something extraordinary with those individuals who helped shape the destiny of Greece, and the history of Europe.  It is an experience all the more authentic, for being so personal.



The captivating history of the Hotel Grande Bretagne combined with its precious antiques, world-class art and emblematic grandeur, somehow lends extra significance to everything that happens here. There is no single more prestigious venue in Greece in which to hold a meeting, or host an event. Each of the rooms has its own exquisite décor, its rare objets and its stories to tell, but the Hotel Grande Bretagne team will ensure that the headline story for each event is indelibly yours.



The Hotel Grande Bretagne’s location on Syntagma Square is legendary. View after enchanting view unfolds from the windows and balconies like illustrations in some living guide book on Athens.  Enjoy a very chilled ouzo as the sun goes down, and watch the light turn the Parthenon a delicate shade of rose. Still a transcendent experience, 2,463 years after it was built. Legendary in its own right is the personalized Butler Service; a pre-requisite for the busy diplomat on the move, the family on a European tour, or the business visitor with a heavy schedule.  Butlers can be consulted on a surprising variety of matters, from how to get a suit refreshed or an urgent courier arranged, to protocol for entertaining foreign dignitaries at private dinners.



Rooms and suites at the Hotel Grande Bretagne provide heritage elegance and studied luxury, discreetly underpinned with state of the art facilities.  Antique pieces and historic details satisfy the mind’s appreciation for authenticity, while sumptuous fabrics and high-spec marble bathrooms indulge appreciation by the senses.  It may be a living museum, but it is one that sparkles with life! To prove the point, why not indulge in a complimentary visit to the award-winning GB spa, with its marble baths and Aegean blue pool?  World-class therapies and treatments are available in a deeply calming environment, but sometimes things are simple than that: After a long day of archaeological appreciation, a good massage, steam, or swim can seem like a gift from the gods.



Food and drink fit for modern gods is available throughout the Hotel Grande Bretagne, at any time of day. It may not confer immortality, but it will certainly make you feel that way, and whatever your mood, or the occasion, from operatic to intimate, you will find the hotel spot that’s perfect for you. Leading off the historic lobby on the ground floor, the beautiful atrium of the Winter Garden is as famous for its afternoon teas as dinner or light lunch. The award-winning Alexander’s Bar is loved by an international clientele for its signature combination of 18th century tapestry and 21st century mixology.Further upstairs, Alexander’s Cigar Lounge invites connoisseurs of rare cognac and the finest tobacco to savour moments of matchless finesse. On the top floor, the GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar leave equally indelible memories.  These start with inspired cuisine, witty cocktails and intriguing fellow guests, and finally come full circle, like everything else here, to those ineffable views of the Parthenon rising from the Acropolis.  An example of eternal elegance without peer.



As certified destination authorities, the Luxury Collection Concierges know Athens better than most Athenians.  Between them, they offer unsurpassable access and insight into one of the world’s best-loved, most ancient, and most forward-thinking cities.The key significant historical and archaeological sites in Athens are within easy walking distance of both hotels. Visits to the Parthenon, Agora, Plaka, Monastiraki, Thission or the Temple of Olympian Zeus can all be arranged, with or without a private guide. 


As a vibrant, contemporary cosmopolis, Athens continues to inspire. Your Luxury Collection Concierge will be glad to make recommendations, and reservations, whether you’re looking for a quiet, romantic dinner for two, or a major gastronomic adventure.  Equally useful advice is available on cocktail or cigar bars, nightclubs, music venues, theatrical performances or any other outlet for cultural expression.
