It’s not entirely fair to judge a hotel (or any location in Athens, really) by the ability to see the Acropolis from its roof or rooms because the renowned site is visible from many vantage points in the city. Still, Hotel Grande Bretagne–a 5-star historical landmark and Luxury Collection hotel–offers one of the most breathtaking views of the fabled Acropolis, regal Syntagma Square and the Parliament, verdant Lycabettus Hill, and the original Olympic Stadium.

From the lush lobby to the richly-appointed rooms, no luxury is spared and the staff are incomparable. Guests will have to go on top of the hotel for the most luxurious spot–the rooftop, that is. The GB Roof Garden and Bar is truly spectacular, offering jaw-dropping views of Athens. The consistent recipient of numerous travel and hotel awards, Hotel Grande Bretagne is a must, if only for a special occasion, on any traveler’s list.
