The view and services are great. But the food is just average. We ordered kakavia soup (fish and seafood), the taste is good but it would be great if the soup is a bit hotter. We also ordered fish of the day and chicken leg fillet. The chicken is so so. The fish is a bit over cooked. I was...

To me the Acropolis is the most magnificent, spectacular wonder in the world. It "IS" civilization!!... and this hotel is in perfect location to see this wonder and the magical city of Athens. Service was exceptional. Attentive to all your needs. Rooms are a good size and beautiful decorated (depending on tastes). Beds very comfortable. Bathrooms are huge and have...

As has been said before in all the reviews, you really can't fault the location. Right in the centre of everything, restaurants, metro etc just metres away. It's a grand building, no doubt, and the reception area etc is almost palatial. Our room was comfortable, small, but fine. But do watch out for the extras, 'fast' wi-fi is charged to...

Located at the very centre of Athens! The metro & tram station are just across the road, as well as the bus from-to airport! The hotel is clean with a British touch! There is a range of rooms and prices..the breakfast to die for! The is a little shop with Greek goodies!

We did not pay for our hotel, so I cannot tell you whether the price is reasonable, but you couldn't ask for a better location or a better rooftop view in all of Athens. Have an over priced drink on the roof at night --- it's spectacular. We did not eat at the hotel. We preferred walking to the nearby...

It's not hard to see the beauty of this hotel. The beautiful surrounds, art and structure itself. But what really stands this apart is the details. The night service, the 5 different saunas, iced tea after working out, bottled water next to your bed, the divine nuts with a drink at the bar, warm milk with your Earl Grey or...

We had the most delicious dinner at the hotel restaurant with a breathtaking view of the Acropolis lit at night. The hotel is beautiful and the room was very nice and very clean. I would highly recommend this hotel!

...and the views are breathtaking. On a clear day you can see several islands from the restaurant. The view on the parthenon is spectacular. The food is good, as you may expect, but naturally expensive. Would i go back? Yes!

Grand old dame of Athens hotels. Situated in a central location, in the heart of Athens at Syntagma Square, and nearby to restaurants, shops, transport, and landmarks like the Parliament, the National Gardens. The Hotel has an old world charm, but with modern amenities. Spotless in upkeep, beautiful interiors, and friendly staff. Loved the daily breakfast at the GB Roof...

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.
