The Electra was not my first choice but the Plaka Hotel was fully booked so I took the risk and booked the Electra. We arrived fairly early after a cruise and they checked our luggage until our rooms were ready. The front desk staff, at all times, AM and PM, could not have been friendlier and accomodating. You pay for... More

We recently stayed in this hotel and it was perfect in many ways for a 4 days trip to Athens. It was close to Syntagma train station, Athens central station. From the airport, you could take the metro and from Syntagma train station, it is just a 5 min walk. Buy tur retur ticket and it costs 14 euro. The... More

This hotel was so convenient for touring Athens. We love to walk and most of the sites in Athens are within a half hour walk. If you prefer to take the subway, the Syntagma Square station is one block away. The rooms are spotless, updated, pretty and comfortable. They include a hairdryer, safe and coffee maker. The toiletries (lotion, shampoo,... More

decent to very nice hotel depending on where your room is located. The 2nd floor rooms old and rather tiny, gets better as you go up the floors. Staff fine, location within blocks of the Plaka on a pedestrian only street, right off of Syntagma Square.

We were there the end of September 2014 and found the hotel very nice. Our room was quite pleasant. Not as spacious as many US motel rooms, but by European standards a good place to stay. It is on a pedestrian street, so a cab will let you off about 100 feet from the door but a very satisfactory spot.... More

As a group of female travelers this hotel is very well positioned to see the best of Athens on foot. The hop on hop off bus is around the corner as is the National Garden and Syntagma Square. Plaka is close by which is a vibrant restaurant and shopping district. Very enjoyable stay.

We like to stay here because it is conveniently located to the airport bus stop, Syntagma square and all the tourist spots in Athens. Great breakfast and you can use their sister hotel's spa, pool and gym. Rooms are nice- they have minibars, coffee/tea service, robes and toiletries. The front desk staff was very nice and helpful but the staff... More

As noted by many, the only reason to stay at this hotel is the location which is convenient to all things a tourist would want to see and do, certainly not for the hospitality shown by its front desk. First impressions are lasting ones and the narrow entry to a lobby filled with luggage and lounging guests made me wonder... More
