We have spent 3 nights out of four, at this centrally located hotel, in Athens. This is a 5 star luxury hotel. Everyone has been helpful, every call made for help has been backed up by a call 10 minutes later to check. Turn down is excellent, if your are in Athens and want to experience luxury this is the...

This rooftop restaurant is the perfect spot for watching the sunset or a lightening show streaking across the sky behind your view of the Acropolis. The food was quite good -the risotto and smoked salmon pasta were great .

Don't get me wrong, this is a five star hotel, with a lot of style and class! It is exquisitely decorated and the front desk clerks, concierge, bellman, and Butler were all top notch! The maids on the other hard were marginal at best. I always tip the maids, once the first night and once the last night. I was... More

A classic luxury hotel with a great location in the centre of Athens. My room was a good size with all amenities that I would expect from a 5 star property, although I would recommend ladies to bring your own hairdryer, very comfortable bed. The restaurant and bar on the 8th floor has a fantastic view over the city and... More

I stay here often when visiting Athens and will say that it is the best hotel in the area. The service is 10/10. The food fantastic and the cleanliness is phenomenal. There are always staff on hand to assist and they genuinely cannot do enough for you. Highly recommended.

I stayed only for a night before moving to the king George for an event. What an experience! From arrival the reception people are so friendly and caring asking about my trip, felt like they truly did care. The hotel is beautiful- best of it the breakfast room! As you can see from the picture the view is just stunning!!... More

If you want to stay in the center of Athens, this is the place, provided of course, that your visit will not coincide with any demonstrations in central Athens! In such case you may face problems with getting a taxi or approaching the hotel. Excellent service in all areas, excellent breakfast served on the roof garden with great view of... More

We were staying there overnight while travelling to Skopelos. It is a luxury hotel with a beautiful view at Acropol from the tarrace restaurant. Stylish rooms and good staff. We were a bit dissapointed by the quality of food, not good value for money. The breakfast was ok but not great. I think the best about this hotel is just... More

We had a high floor corner suite with a view of the Parthenon and Parliament. The spa use was included as was breakfast on the top floor with unforgettable views. There was no request which was not dealt with quickly. In fact, when we asked for a check out later than the normal 4 PM late check out they placed... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
