“The grande dame of hotels in Athens sits opposite the Parliament on Syntagma Square and has been a beacon of luxury and sophistication in the city for many years. There are many draws to this 1842-vintage building that used to be a private mansion.”
“If you aspire to the best, the place to stay in Athens is – and always has been – the Grande Bretagne, right on Syntagma Sq. Built in 1862 to accommodate visiting heads of state, it ranks among the grandest hotels in the world.”
“With a guest list that includes more than a century’s worth of royals, rock stars, and heads of state, the landmark Grande Bretagne remains the most exclusive hotel in Athens. Built in 1842, the hotel still reflects its original grandeur.”

“The best rooms have balconies overlooking Syntagma Square with a view of the daily changing of the guard and the son et lumier show on the Acropolis most evenings. Just about everybody who’s anybody has stayed here including Winston Churchill, any number of Kennedys, and Madonna.”
