My wife and I stayed in this hotel 2 nights as part of our honeymoon vacation. The location couldn't have been better. We were near everything: Plaka, Acropolis, flee market, shopping, bars and restaurants, etc. The room was of good size and comfortable with a view of the outside street. Included was a daily buffet breakfast which had a very... More

We stayed in a "family room," which is essentially connecting rooms. The rooms were nicely sized by European standards, and the service was quite good overall. The breakfast is delightful, and the location is exceptional if you like to be near the epicenter of Greek life and activity.

We stayed on the 8th floor for 4 days. The room was small - but immaculately clean and the king bed was comfortable - although it was two singles pushed together (which always adds a bit of comedy to certain situations). There isn't any view - unless looking over the commercial shopping street is thrilling to you... but the windows... More

We only stayed for 1 night, but we were very happy with our choice in hotel. Great location with a lot going on nearby. The room was small, but very nice and clean. Not much to complain about. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

I was exceptionally pleased with this hotel!!! I have stayed in quite a few European hotels and they are all very old, crowded and small. This room was luxurious, modern, and spacious! I had a small love seat in the room and a large comfortable queen bed. Wifi worked great and breakfast was included daily. The location is excellent so... More

We had a fantastic experience staying at the Electra hotel. The staff is friendly and went out of their way to help us have a great time. We needed to leave very early on our last day and they arranged for a special breakfast table for us as the breakfast room wasn't open that early. The breakfast is wonderful, rooms... More

The Electra was a fantastic hotel, I really enjoyed my time here. The rooms are quite compact, but they are what I would refer to as very nice quality rooms styled beautifully and feel very luxurious. The toiletries are of a high quality and the minibar in the fridge held enough of a selection of alcohol that I could have... More

The hotel was well located and the breakfast was excellent. The room was very small for a triple. Really just a small single with a single bed added. The staff were helpful with directions. Be wary of pick pockets on the Metro.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
