Electra Hotel provides nice, comfortable accommodation and good service at affordable prices. It is ranked as a 4* hotel and its overall quality justifies the score. It is located in the heart of Athens, in Syntagma Square, on one of the most commercial and busy streets of the city (Ermou street). The whole area is served by all means of... More

Our cards to our room didn't work. We were issued new cards 4 times. We got woken up in the middle of the night around 2am to the people above us. We could hear everything they were doing. Shower, toilet flushing, walking up and down the room. So that was really annoying. Hotel is walking distance to everything. So that's... More

The Electra Hotel is located right at the beginning of the Plaka. You can walk outside the front door and to the left is the path to Monasteraki (visit the bar on the top floor of the A is for Athens Hotel to see an incredible view at night of the Acropolis), the Acropolis, lots and lots of stores, and...

The Electra Hotel was just wonderful; clean, friendly, amazing location. The rooms were of a high standard. The mattress was nice and firm but really comfortable and the shower good. Air conditioning not noisy at all. On the last night when there was a problem with it, technicians were sent up immediately to fix it. The buffet breakfast was relaxed,... More

The hotel is situated In a very good and convenient location. Easy to access from airport. However no free wifi in the room, only available in the lobby. You ended up seeing everyone sitting in lobby for the free wifi. Breakfast ok but service not so ok. The staff doesn't collect your dirty plates and it stays there for around... More

Not having free wi-fi in a hotel of this standard is like having cold showers - not acceptable. But this hotel is brilliantly situated. Shame about the diffident porter who could not be bothered to press the button to at least get us to the right floor. The terrace is spectacular - the decking around the stunning pool is tiny....

We were very pleased. The hotel is well-located, an easy walk to everything you might want in central Athens. The neighborhood is attractive for visitors — and that cannot be said for every neighborhood in Athens. The hotel was recently refurbished, and it shows. Our room was in excellent shape. Service was prompt and gracious. Our room had a very... More

Considering it is a 4-star hotel, I was a bit disappointed with the hotel. Indeed, the hotel is fantastically located in the Centre of Athens (next to Syntagma square, the Parliament and the Acropolis) and in a shopping district, and is easily accessible from the Airport (bus to Syntagma square). However, the service is not up to the expected standards.... More

No Wifi in the rooms.In the Internet and Digital Age!!! it is charged 5 euro per day.Most of the staff (especially in the reception and lobby) are not friendly and not positive. They don't represent traditional greek hospitality.There are jugs of water with many glasses at the lobby but even in the very hot days of july,when you come to... More
