Fodor's Review

With a guest list that includes more than a century's worth of royals, rock stars, and heads of state, the landmark Grande Bretagne remains the most exclusive hotel in Athens. As you marvel at one of the most eye-knocking views of the Acropolis from the terrace restaurant, or rest on custom-made silk ottomans in the lobby, or call your personal butler 24 hours a day from your room, you may very well think it is the very best. Built in 1842, the hotel still reflects its

original grandeur, with restored 19th-century oil paintings, antiques, and hand-carved details as they were more than a century ago. There's also a lovely spa where you can pamper yourself with indulgences such as salt and oil scrubs. As for amenities, there are none better in Athens—just a few of these are the laptop and mobile phone rentals, a technology help desk, and free daily newspapers.
