The hotel's location is excellent right at the heart of central Athens. Building is nice, rooms clean and we'll decorated (comparatively smaller at 25m) and breakfast ok. Unfortunately the Internet was unacceptable not even for the most basic functions. Worst for me who as a business traveller and technology professional, I expected and required to have access to internet for... More

We stayed at the Electra Hotel for 6 nights at the beginning of January and found this to be a beautiful hotel. Firstly, the location is superb. The hotel is right on the popular pedestrianized strip of shops at Ermou St. So central and yet once inside the hotel it's not noisy at all. From here, everything of note (... More

The location of this hotel is perfect,about 50 metres from Syntagma Square but unlike most hotels in the heart of Athens ,the room at night was very quiet and I couldn't hear the traffic. The decor is lovely throughout . The bedroom was comfortable and clean but quite a small room . Most importantly it was lovely and quiet and... More

Immaculate hotel near Syntagma square, thus very convenient for airport bus etc. The staff are, on the whole, exceptionally helpful and efficient. We we there in December and the main problem in this hotel is the heating. It is simply unbearably hot. Our first room had only a small window which had been set so as to open about 2... More

We booked a Delux room at this hotel and it was fantastic. The room is very clean and modern and views of Ermou street and it is decorated to resemble a classic regal Greek room. The hotel is beautifully decorated and the corridors on each floor are nicely done with luxurious carpet. The staff were also very nice and sent... More

A nice clean and very centrally located hotel in the heart of Athens. A superb hot and cold breakfast was for me the highlight of my stay. Great staff and spacious rooms lent to a pleasant stay on Athens.

The hotel has the best location ever as it is near Syntagma square and a few minutes distant from Acropolis and Monastiraki and Plaka zones. The personnel is high quality and very kind. They will help you in any case you need them. Rooms have a lot of comforts,even if the bathroom is really small, but the bathtub is good... More

Excellent location, easily accessible hotel in the center of Athens next to Syntagma square - It is situated on Ermou street, which is only for pedestrians with all the nice shops of Athens (and some expensive ones). Rooms differ greatly with nice good ones overlooking Ermou and some smaller less comfortable ones looking at the back side, that have a... 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.
