Signature Hotel Experience – Hotel Grand Bretagne
Hi, my name is Kit Matthews and I’m a senior travel consultant with Preferred Travel in Naples, Florida. On one of my recent trips, I was in Athens, Greece, which I’ve had the opportunity to be in twice in the last six months and one of the reasons I like to go back to Athens is this incredible hotel, which is part of the Signature collection of hotels. It is the hotel Grand Bretagne and it is a luxury collection hotel. It’s a five star hotel. It is the city center of Athens and is directly across the street from Parliament and the service and the staff at the hotel are some of the best that I have ever experienced. The rooms are done elegantly, their very large.
Some of the amenities that come with the hotel include free American breakfast for two people every morning, you have free wi-fi, you also have one lunch down in Alexander’s bar & restaurant, which is off the lobby and you also at the time of check in can get an upgrade to another higher category if it is available.
One of the best attractions of the Hotel Grand Bretagne is the rooftop restaurant, called the Grand Bretagne Bar & Restaurant. It has indoor and outdoor dining and the view from up there is of the Acropolis. So, at night, the Acropolis is lit up and it is just magical to sit up there and have a cocktail and have dinner and look at that beautiful view.
There are two main restaurants at the Hotel Bretagne. The first one is Hotel Bretagne Bar and Restaurant on the roof and then there is Alexander’s Bar & Restaurant, which is off the main lobby downstairs. They have a beautiful spa that has a number of services. Also, on the 4th floor, they have a swimming pool that is outside and it also has a bar and an eating area that they serve light snacks.
The hotel is situated in the city center of Athens, so if you want to go shopping or just see some museums, they’re all in walking distance to the hotel. The concierge team at the hotel will be more than happy to give you directions and can assist you with that.
