Grand Bretagne Hotel Athens

The legendary Grande Bretagne, one of Athens's most distinguished 19th-century buildings, is back after a $70-million, 2-year renovation.

The changes preserved the exquisite Beaux Arts lobby, made dingy rooms grand once more, and added indoor and outdoor swimming pools. From Winston Churchill to Sting, the guests who stay here expect the highest level of attention. The Grande Bretagne prides itself on its service; you are unlikely to be disappointed. Ask for a room with a balcony overlooking Syntagma Square, the Parliament building, and the Acropolis.
