This kind of services I definitely love in every hotels for an average price.. Maybe only for few months , howlong the refurbishment looks good! I appreciated the good qualities of carpets, lining and amenities (Korres), also the coffe and tea maker in the room. The Wi-Fi doesn't work every time in the room, and the glass wall on the...

The best quality of this hotel is its central location, next to Syntagma Square. Close to everything Acropolis, Plaka, Kolonaki, etc. The room was small but very clean, the mattress very soft and the breakfast could be better.

Very conveniently located if you're visiting Athens for the first time. Didn't get to try the breakfast as was too wale on the day after the night before. High quality... More

You can take the subway from the airport to the Syntagma Square station. There's a 2-people option, which is 2 euros cheaper than 2 separate tickets. This hotel is a 2 to 3-minute walk from the station, just across the street from the square. There are always taxis at the square. So transportation is very convenient. The Acropolis is a... More

We stayed here in a standard room and the first thing that struck me is how tiny the room and the bathroom was. Of course, it was all very comfortable - a sofa, nice linen, good range of toiletries but the size was much smaller than standard rooms in other 4 stars. The glass separator next to the bath tub...

This hotel is located at just a few minutes walk from Syntagma square. I stayed at this hotel twice, once when I came back from Tirana (3 Apr.) and at the second time, I checked out and moved to Kalambaka, and on the next day I came back to this hotel again(5 Apr.). At the first stay, room number was 914,... More

I stayed at the Hotel Electra for three nights following a cruise of the Aegean Sea. My intent was to get a quick look at some of the more important tourist attractions. A central location was therefore imperative and the Hotel Electra certainly met that criteria. It was very close to the Syntagma Square so walking to the Parthenon, Parliament... More

located in the heart of historic center of Athens, the hotel is ideal for both business trips and for leisure. I think it might need to be a little renovated, but I recommend it . kind staff and good breakfast.

I was in Athens for a business trip and I stayed at this hotel for a night. It is a clean hotel with a nice room and a decent breakfast. This hotel is good for vacations since it is at the centre of Athens close to shops and restaurants. It 's not good though for business. There was not enough... More

This is the second time I have stayed with the Electra group in Athens, last year I stayed in the Electra Palace in Plaka with 2 customers, this time I decided to stay at the hotel nearer the centre. This is a nice comfortable hotel staff were especially nice and friendly nothing was too much. I forgot my electric travel... More
