Grande Bretagne Hotel is a first class hotel which has been around for over a century, and has a pristine reputation.
ETG writer Nicole McClinton stayed at the hotel in 2019, and had a fantastic time. She said when she and her travel companion pulled up to the hotel, the taxi driver told her that the Hotel Grand Bretagne was one of the oldest and best in Athens. “The hotel did not disappoint. The staff was amazing. Our room came with butler service and complimentary spa access.” She added, that the view in the restaurant was spectacular. “After changing out of our travel clothes, we went to the rooftop restaurant, where we enjoyed a nice glass of wine and an Aperol Spritz. We were truly elated when given a table with a clear view of the night time Acropolis, lit up in splendor.” Read a review by Nicole HERE – or go to the Stories Section, on the Unplug/Recharge Page, under the Chasing the Wonder drop-down.
