This hotel is in a perfect location in the Plaka district, close to shops and restaurants. The staff are helpful and friendly. The rooms are fitted out with all you need and are clean and tidy! The first room we had was a little small but on our return visit we were lucky enough to be put in a more... More

The only upside to this Hotel is its location, everything else is just average. The hotel staff were hit and miss, some were helpful while others were not. The rooms themselves are surprisingly small, significantly smaller than your average holiday inn room in the US, and we even had a junior suite. Furthermore, the A/C was not able to keep... More

LOCATION: A 45 minute train ride from the airport (same time as a taxi but only €8) takes you to Syntagma Square, where it's a 3 minute walk to the hotel and you're in the middle of everything. The main Ermou St shopping drag is on your doorstep, the Acropolis, Parthenon and Agoras are a 15 minute walk away and... More

This was a great starting point for touring Athens. The location is wonderful with food, shopping, and sites, right out the front door. The rooms are small but nice enough. The front desk check in is really slow. We only stayed for two nights, on our way to Crete, but I felt like it was a perfect place for our... More

We only stayed one night in this hotel before flying to Santorini but the location is really central, close to Syntagma Square/Parliament building. Right outside the hotel is the pedestrian street of Ermou with shops and restaurants. It is modern with a small lobby but check in was quick even with a line up. The room we had was on... More

Stayed here for 2 nights with my family at the end on June during the protests. We arrived in the evening and had a problem with getting to the hotel because of its location next to Sydagma Square which is where the protests were being held. Once we got to the hotel there were no issues. We had a double... More

We spent a splendid week in Athens at Electra hotel. We selected the hotel based on favorable reviews and were not disappointed. Service was very good, rooms were rather small but larger than what we expected based on reviews. Free breakfast was definitely satisfactory. Above all, the location could not be better. New wifi in the rooms was weak, but... More

Let me start with the plus: the cappuccino served during breakfast was very nice. The hotel is also located in a very strategic location. These are the only nice things that I can say. As for everything else, I was extremely disappointed with this hotel. We stayed in two different rooms, and both were so cramped up. On our first... More

This hotel is in a great location right next to syntagma square and very close (ten minutes walk) to the Acropolis, Plaka, etc. An American breakfast buffet is included and you have access to all the amenities of their sister hotel, the Electra Palace. The beds are very comfortable, the housekeeping staff does a great job of keeping the rooms... More

We arrived in Athens very tired (flight arrived past midnight) expecting an organised transfer to the hotel, only to find out after calling the hotel that they had mixed up the date of our arrival/check-in so we had to line-up and take a taxi. Upon arrival, the reception person said that perhaps my credit card was declined when they tried... More

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.
