After hours of pouring over hotel websites, I finally ended up with an airbnb place.Glad you found a nice spot, Spins.
Like JP below, we only stay at the Grande. The service has always been spot on, the location perfect for walking everywhere, and being the oddballs that we are, enjoy seeing the local demonstrations. In fact, during our last visit we were able to watch the roughly 5,000 demonstrators scream "Traitors, Traitors" while lawmakers were in session in parliament discussing a no-confidence motion against the government over the controversial name deal with neighboring Macedonia.
Spins, good news about the trimmed layover. I guess I fit into Jeff's American stereotype because I was going to recommend the Grande Bretagne. Have stayed there a few times and always enjoy it. Only problem is that it's right on Syntagma Square, and across from Parliament. So if there is a demonstration, it's right there in your face.
