The hotel has the grandeur and feel of luxury as you would expect from a hotel in this class. Yet, it is not stuffy, service was great even though we were not guest but just a bunch of yoyos looking to experience the roof garden. The service was incredible, we sat outside with the views. It was a cool night... More

I would definitely recommend to visit this place for a drink. Mesmerising view, friendly service, good choice of wines and cocktails. But will never stay again for dinner. It was…confusing to say the least. Pompous service set me in a mood of amazing meal to come. Did not happen. My crab ravioli was lacking any flavour but had plenty of... More

On our four day visit to Athens, we tired of the second class local food served in most restaurants here. We went for the top - this is a high class place - and were not disappointed. Superb dining experience. The card is well balanced with a limited range of choices. Excellent service, quietly competent. My tuna tartare was among... More

This place gets too little credit for its food. Yes, the view is just breathtaking, and that's what the place is known for. But this doesn't mean the place sells its view. The food here is absolutely amazing too! Great choice of local wine, fresh seafood, other modern mediterranean food. Loved it all around. We went with a 2 year... More

We ate on the roof garden every day of our stay at the hotel. The breakfast dishes are varied and delicious. Nearly everything you might want is available. The breads are amazing! A variety of fresh fruits are very appealing. Recommend highly!

My wife and I were staying at the sister hotel the King George which is located next door to the Grande Bretagne and decided to have drinks in the roof top bar to see the night time view of the Acropolis; we were not disappointed by either. After looking at the menu we also decided to stay there for dinner... More

This is a unique spot in the heart of Athens. Been here several times for biz but also with friends. You will enjoy the view and kind staff.

Having our breakfast here as part of our hotel stay, we were spoilt daily by the beautiful views of the Acropolis, and also of Athens. Breakfast spread is good. Staff are very friendly.

We visited last week and had a family dinner. As it is located in the 8th floor in the most central square of Athens, the view leaves you breathless on arrival. The staff is very welcoming and kind. The cocktails are unique and so creative. The soup of the day was a fantastic squash soup and the meats were of... More

GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar The view from the GB Roof Garden Restaurant & Bar is breathtaking. In the most ideal location, the uninterrupted views of the Acropolis, Lycabettus hill and the Parliament are truly magnificent. The Restaurant - awarded by the Wine Spectator magazine three years in a row - serves New Mediterranean cuisine with emphasis on quality raw materials and excellent technique. For breakfast or lunch, the elegant and warm environment of the GB Roof Garden restaurant creates a tranquil atmosphere, while dinner is perfect when the city lights come on and the cosmopolitan aura becomes apparent.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
