Grande Bretagne Hotel, gift shop

The most emblematic hotel in the Constitution square of Athens, facing the Parliament, opened in 1878. Inside the recently renovated hotel that cost more than 82 million euros you can find except from the luxurious rooms and restaurants (Roof garden, GB corner, GB winter garden) and bars (Alexander's bar and cigar lounge, the Cellar and the Pool bar) a small gift shop in the left corner of the lobby.

Inside the gift shop you can find, ties, swimsuits from Zegna, perfumes from Aqua di Parma, local and international newspapers, silver and gold souvenirs and Hasselbland cameras. It is the only place in Athens, Greece too that you can find these expensive digital cameras. While I was there, there were two models, one costing 1700 euros and one costing 6.700 euros. I asked the SA if they have already sold any, and she told me that as soon as they got them a Chinese guy bought one (the expensive one ) so they brought a replacement.

We went for the Greek products. There are some marmelades, Greek honey, tea, aceto balcamico and olive oil. All from producers around Greece selling exclusively to the hotel. 

We took a gift set of three different types of honey. Orange blossom, forest and fir tree. 

Also a bergamot jam.
