Hotel Grande Bretagne, a Luxury Collection Hotel

Map
A1 Vas Georgiou, Athens, 10564, Greece

Athens’s landmark hotel is a local legend. During WWII, a busboy saved Winston Churchill’s life by disarming a bomb in the basement. Three separate actors who played James Bond have stayed here, as have royalty and various heads of state. It’s the very definition of a grand hotel, with white-gloved valets, soaring ceilings, priceless antiques, crystal chandeliers, cloudlike bedding and marble baths, and a full spa with an indoor pool and steam rooms. But the jewel in the 321-room hotel’s crown may be the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis and the 1896 Olympic Stadium from the rooftop bar and restaurant and of Mount Lycabettus from the rooftop pool. The central location is perfect—opposite the Parliament Building and overlooking Syntagma Square.
