We have recently spent the Easter break at the Electra Hotel. We cannot say enough about the quality of our room, the standard of breakfast available and the very courteous and helpful staff. Very central location for lucky tourists. Highly recommend

great location, at edge of Plaka (old town tourist area)' can walk to all major sites. Easy to get to from airport, right at Metro station. Staff, service, and breakfast 1st class. Although on noisy street, room was very quiet.

I have stayed at the Electra several times in the past. They have recently been renovated, and the result looks stunning. However, perhaps they should have spent a little money on the air conditioning and heating system. The temperature outside was 24 C, and in my room it was stiflingly hot. The air conditioning was not working - only a... More

The hotel was recently renovated and is a great value. The rooms are decorated in an elegant style and have some newer appointments, including new showers. The room I had was on the smaller size but for the price and being in a conference nearby the whole day it fit the bill since I wasn't going to be spending my... More

Electra Hotel is located right in the center of Athens. Wifi free of charge is only at the lobby or in the dining room at first floor. Excellent and friendly staff speaking good English. I've got a room with a pretty view on Acropolis :) Magdalena (Poland)

Stayed in Electra Hotel some years ago and got the greatest impression. We stayed again now, end of February 2014, but unfortunately we were very disappointed by the service. First of all the hotel is in a great location in the center of Athens. Right in the heart of Ermou Street, easy access to almost every place of interest either... More

The location is good and the staff are very polite and helpful. However, my single room was tiny and the air conditioning didn't work. As even in February the room was far too hot, I had to open the window which let in a worryingly noisy insect. Some sections of the hotel are in need of a face-lift, with some... More

I was debating with myself whether I should give three or four points and opted for four in the end, I will also explain why. Actually, I would have given 3,5, if possible. I have not chosen the hotel myself, the interior design, furniture etc is very seventies, early eighties, not really my style, but ok. It is well situated,... More

We spent three nights at the Electra. It is in a great location to most sights in Athens. The rooms are small but comfortable. We were on the 8th floor so traffic and street noise was not a problem. There is a great breakfast every morning on the 1st floor. We had several minor complaints that would not be enough... More
