One of the finest hotels I have stayed in. Truly a 5 star experience. The room was perfect, the staff were polished yet friendly and engaging. Rooftop dining and bar had amazing service with beautiful views. This is the only place I'll stay in Athens from now on. Perfect location as well.

This is in my opinion Athens' oldest and finest hotel. It brings back the hey-day of the rich and famous enjoying the elegance and beauty. It has a long history of being the best. I agree completely. The service is impeccable and the staff is among the best to be found. The restaurant services are excellent and the food is...

Brilliant hotel in the middle of Athens. Definitely one of the best Starwood Luxury hotels. Service is excellent and accommodation very classy, clean and comfortable. Beautiful view of Acropolis at Rooftop restaurant for breakfast/dinner or just a drink. Very nice spa facilities and two swinming pools. Would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone!

We stayed here for 4 nights in November with our 2 kids ages 6&8. It's one of the most luxurious hotels we've stayed in. The location is outstanding. The breakfast is superb. The indoor pool and steam rooms were our kids' favorite part of the stay . The view of the Parthenon from the rooftop restaurant is a pleasure to...

I booked this hotel 9 months in advance. It was my error in assuming a luxury hotel would allow cancellations within a reasonable period of time. I need to cancel our entire trip 4 months in advance of check in. The hotel would only refund one night of my prepaid reservation. This is a lesson to use American hotels with...

This hotel is wonderful. The moment you enter reception, it feels grand, warm and welcoming. The staff are super efficient and discrete. The standard rooms are large, very comfortable and have great bathrooms. The bed was extremely soft and very, very comfortable. Breakfast was a great highlight. From wherever you sat there was a great view of the ruins or...

The Hotel Grande Bretagne may cost a little bit more than other hotel options, but it is worth the price! All the staff were excellent- very helpful and polite- I felt like a foreign dignitary the way they treated me :) There was turn-down service every night with water on the nightstand, chocolate on the pillows, and slippers by the...

The top hotel in Athens. The group owns the number two hotel too, the King George, which is next door, and they share a restaurant, which does not help competition! The view of the Acropolis is spectacular, day and night, even with the (long-term) cranes! Club ("Butler") benefits limited BUT (at least some) 6th floor DeLuxe rooms do have balcony...

1. The location is superb, in the center of everything pulsating in Athens civic and shopping wise. 2. The building is gorgeous. Much more impressive interior than exterior. Interior decorations recall the best of "bygone days" in Europe. Furniture, carpet, marble floor, paintings all exude elegance. But they also feel well maintained. This is not an old "name hotel" that...

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.
