You can disagree if you like but in my opinion the GB is the best hotel in Athens and I have stayed in a lot of them- Matt Barrett
Listed in Conde Naste Traveler's 100 Best Hotels of the
World, the Grande Bretagne is not just a luxurious hotel in central Athens.
It is an historic landmark that has hosted the world's most well-known dignitaries
and has been the scene of some of the most remarkable moments in Greece's history.
If you are looking for luxury in a centrally located hotel the
Grande Bretagne is the place to stay in Athens, Greece. Since
the renovations for the 2004 Olympics they have added a swimming
pool on the roof, another beautiful pool and state-of-the-art
health-spa in the basement, improved and added bars, cafes and
restaurants, enlarged the rooms and added to them DSL, Internet
TV, Pay-for-view movies, satellite TV and music and have
made a great hotel even better. But the best thing about the
Grande Bretagne may be the staff because you can do all the
renovations and have the best food and art in the world and the
most important memories a traveler will take home are of the
people he has met who made his visit easier and more enjoyable.
The Grande Bretagne has managed to find the best and the brightest
staff in Greece, from the people at the front desk all the way
down to the men and women who service the rooms.
