In the heart of Athens, the Hotel Grande Bretagne has graced this city since 1874. This hotel has some serious history, hosting royalty, heads of state and even occupied by the German forces during world war 2. It has gone through numerous remodels, and now is better then ever. Offering every amenity of any 5 star hotel, the Grande Bretagne awaits you.

The views here are extraordinary, from the rooftop bar (which also serves as the ultimate breakfast spot in the city) you’ll see constitution square, the Parliament building and the icon not of just Athens but Greece, the Acropolis.  This is only one of two properties in Greece to make the list, and they earned it. Trust me, once you experience the rooms the views and the service, I’m sure you’ll agree, this is 5 star luxury defined.

The main bar, has what is probably one of the most breathtaking views in Athens. It is the perfect place for a romantic drink as the sun sets and the lights come up on the Acropolis.
