Expert Review

This historic hotel opened in 1874, and stands adjacent to the Greek Parliament on Syntagma Square. Its 264 elegant rooms and 56 suites come with antique furniture, plush fabrics, chandeliers, and marble bathrooms – the best ones have Acropolis views (and a hefty surcharge). Guests take a buffet breakfast in the GB Roof Garden Restaurant; in the evening the menu turns modern Mediterranean with the floodlit Acropolis dominating the skyline. On the ground floor, the GB Corner serves Greek cuisine in an Art Deco setting, while the marble Winter Garden does afternoon tea accompanied by live piano music. Facilities include a glorious summer rooftop pool, plus a luxurious spa offering Ayurvedic treatments, massage, beauty programs, indoor pool, thermal suite with herbal bath, sauna, and gym.
