The electra is in a great location but the staff are the worst I have ever experienced . We have stayed here for 8 nights this summer over 4 trips to Athens and we have been staying at the hotel for a similar number of nights each year for the last 6 years . Its location is the only reason... More

The best thing about this hotel is its location, near to syntagma square and if you walk down the street a bit, you will have the best view of acropolis especially at night when they light it up, food was gvery nice for a 4 star hotel, rooms a little bit small, but I want expecting anything more since it...

The service we experienced was very professional and courteous. The room faced Ermou Street and, although a busy pedestrian street, no noise was heard. The only inconvenience is the lack of additional electrical outlets in the room and the somewhat restricted access to WiFi if you have more than one device or there are two or more guests at the...

This hotel was the perfect location. Right at the start of the main shopping street. Close to the Parliament building-bus routes and hop on hop off stop. The breakfast buffet was awesome. Have a orange juice machine where they put in real oranges-peels and all and the machine squeezes everything and the best orange juice is dispensed. They had fresh... More

The hotel has a good standard of accommodation and is situated in a fantastic location in the centre of Athens. We were able to tour most of the sights in the city without ever getting near a bus or the metro. The positive aspects are: Great central location - Good breakfast - Hospitality tray (very welcome!) The things we did... More

We loved the location-straight on to a pedestrian shopping mall and walking distance to most of the main sights. The room was a reasonable size, tea and coffee making in the room!!!, staff were helpful, breakfast was excellent, and well located for tons of good restaurants. Would recommend this to anyone.

The hotel is very good but its main asset is its location . Right in the heart of Ermou street Next to Syntagma. The rooms are spacious and clean. Breakfast is great too. Would definitely recommend it for staying

We really enjoyed staying at the Electra Hotel on Ermou St. We were on a top floor facing Ermou St. and did not hear any noise from the busy street below. The staff was very friendly and most spoke English. Breakfast was straightforward; it was efficient and satisfactory. Our room was a suite and it was very nice to have... More

We stayed in it two years ago and again in September 2014. We asked for a quiet room with two beds and, to our surprise, were given the same great room! The hotel is only a public square west of the country's Parliament Building on a pedestrian street that in the 19th century was the city's main street and now... More
