Considering it is a 4-star hotel, I was a bit disappointed with the hotel. Indeed, the hotel is fantastically located in the Centre of Athens (next to Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Acropolis) and in a shopping district, and is easily accessible from the Airport (bus to Syntagma square). However, the service is not up to the expected standards.... More

No Wifi in the rooms.In the Internet and Digital Age!!! it is charged 5 euro per day.Most of the staff (especially in the reception and lobby) are not friendly and not positive. They don't represent traditional greek hospitality.There are jugs of water with many glasses at the lobby but even in the very hot days of july,when you come to... More

Electra Hotel is a nicely appointed hotel in the heart of Athens with great shopping right outside the doors. Next to Syntagma Square and the houses of Parliament and a short walk to the Acropolis. Staff are friendly and will go out of their way to help plan your visit. The hostess from South Africa was amazing and we wished... More

We were a rather large group of 10 adults with five rooms. All of the rooms were clean and spacious. Some of the bathrooms were smaller than others but overall the bathrooms were on par for European hotels. Fofi at the front desk was extremely helpful and went out of her way to assist us in dinner reservations or recommendations.... More

Careful, this is not the Electra Palace Hotel but its sister hotel, and frankly it is as good. We were in this hotel during our holidays in Athens and were very pleased. The Electra hotel is at the top of Ermou street and at the limit of the Plaka district. if you don't know Athens, this means that you have... More

Stayed for a night. The room was a little too conjusted for three and so were the bathrooms (actually they were too small for an individual). The WI-Fi was complimentary on the ground floor. In all honesty I think for this price point it should be complimentary. The staff were communiative and helpful. They helped arrange breakfast at 5 in... More

We stayed at Electra hotel twice and in June and each time the stay was fantastic. We stayed in a suite on the top floor which was essentially two good sized rooms and a spacious balcony overlooking syntagma square. The rooms and furnishings were very plush and upscale. The staff was very courteous and attentive. The breakfast was wonderful. The... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Electra. The location is good, walking distance to the Acropolis and Plaka. It's on a nice pedestrian street, so convenient to shopping and restaurants. Clean, comfortable, modern room. The only unsatisfactory element was the wifi access, which was slow and expensive.

Clean, spacious, renovated 3 bed-room. New spacious bathroom. The breakfast was rich. The caffeteria open in Ermou str. is a great idea. The only disadvantage was the wi-fi which was charged by the hour. It does not cost anything to offer it free for their customers.

We stayed two nights here and the location was ideal - you are downtown and close to many restaurants, shopping, flea market and parks. Although the room was small it was what I expected for a big city. The staff in the bistro / bar / restaurant was very friendly and it was great to sit outside and watch the... More
