Set only a breath away from the Acropolis, the historic Grande Bretagne Hotel is considered a landmark in the city center of Athens since it was founded in 1866. As such, it has been adorned with the most luxurious materials so as to retain its ultimate classic and chic style. The selection of materials used include Italian Giallo Sienna and Stauario marbles, Belgium black marbles as well as Sodalite blue semi precious stone that was exclusively chosen for the presidential suite. The bathrooms feature Italian Statuario and Arabescato marbles combined with Verde Guatemala and Port Laurent, while the sinks follow a solid engraved design to gently suggest luxury and opulence. The rest of the hotel, the public areas, lobbies, restaurants and public toilets have been decorated with prestigious and rare stones such as Giallo siena, Sodalite blue, Belgium black and Estermoz.
