Witness to Athens’ singular mix of old and new, Hotel Grande Bretagne is a gateway to the vivid sights and sounds that capture the unmatched spirit of Europe’s oldest capital. Located at the corner of the impressive Syntagama Square, the hotel offers uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, while the ritual changing of the Evzone guard in front of the Parliament building occurs virtually on its doorstep.
In addition to such celebrated attractions as the Parthenon, the Temple of Poseidon, the National Archeological Museum, and Cape Sounion, to name a few, we recommend the following as special nearby places to explore:
The Plaka - This enchanting neighborhood embraces archeological sites nestled next to small ouzerias and tavernas, colourful flower stands, and artisan shops for an authentic flavor of local Athens. The Sunday flea market at Monastiraki Square is well worth a visit.
The Psiri - This quarter comes alive when the sun sets---perfect for night owls in search of superb live performances of every kind of music imaginable.
Temple of Zeus - Just 700 meters south of Syntagma Square, the temple's foundations date back to the tyrant Pisistratus in 515 BC. Its graceful columns influenced the development of Corinthian style.
Ancient Agora - The most famous agora in Greece, Ancient Agora once had private housing, until it was reorganized by Peisistratus in the 6th century BC into the center of Athenian government.
Lycabettus Hill - Approximately 300 metres high, this favourite spot among locals and visitors alike boasts superb views and a sense of tranquility amidst the sprawling Athenian cityscape. Intrepid travellers may ascend the hill on foot. The funicular provides an easier alternative.
Shopping hours are generally 8:30am – 5pm Monday, Wednesday, Saturday; 8:30am – 2pm, 5:30pm – 8:30pm Tuesday, Thursday, Friday. Large shopping malls remain open until 9pm. While most are closed on Sunday, some shops around the Plaka and Monastiraki are frequently open.

In addition to the unrivalled expertise and in-depth local knowledge of our Luxury Collection Concierge team, the Hotel Grande Bretagne offers a range of deluxe services and amenities designed to enrich our guests' stay on every level. From valet parking to High Speed Internet Access to sumptuous In-room Dining to a multi-lingual staff---your comfort and enjoyment are our foremost priorities.
Luxury Collection Concierge
The Concierge team at the Hotel Grande Bretagne is the recognized expert at creating an authentic and truly memorable itinerary of activities to enjoy while visiting Athens.
We invite you to meet our Head Concierge Kyriakos Tomai and members of his team Apostolos Papayannakis, Dimitris Melios, Panayiotis Christou, Giorgos Deligiannidis, and Yiannis Klimatzas. Our concierge team stands ready to be of service seven days a week, 24 hours a day, dedicated to ensuring that each guest is able to unlock the very best of each destination. Each Luxury Collection Concierge is a bilingual, certified destination expert, proudly wearing the “clef d’or”---the gilt insignia of the celebrated international concierge society---and eager to reveal the secret treasures of Athens and beyond. 
From dinner reservations at the finest city restaurants to private tours of historical landmarks, our team always perform with efficiency and aplomb. Turn to them for car rentals, limousine service, flourist services, theater and sports tickets, directions, general information, and so much more.
In addition to such popular attractions as the Acropolis and the Parthenon, the Concierge recommends the following as unique places to explore in the local area:
*Temple of Zeus---About 700 meters south of Syntagma Square, its foundations were laid on the site of an earlier temple by the tyrant Peisistratus in 515 BCE. Aristotle cited the temple as an example of how tyrannies engaged the populace in great works for the state and left them no time, energy, or means to rebel. Its columns later influenced the development of Corinthian style.
*Ancient Agora---The most well known agora, Ancient Agora had private housing, until it was reorganized by Peisistratus in the 6th century BC. Although he may have lived on the agora himself, Peisistratus removed the other houses, closed wells, and made it the center of Athenian government.
*Plaka and Monastiraki---The Plaka is the most rewarding part of the city for daytime wandering. In addition to a scattering of Roman sites and various offbeat and enjoyable museums, it offers glimpses of an exotic past, refreshingly at odds with the concrete blocks of the metropolis. If you can, time your visit to coincide with the Sunday morning flea market around Monastiraki square.
*Lycabettus Hill---Approximately 300 metres high, it is a favourite spot for Athenians and visitors to take a stroll. The summit can be reached via a circular road, pathways or the funicular.

59 Classic and Deluxe Rooms located on the Butler Floors, as well as all hotel suites are entitled to these special services.
