Going to keep this short and to the point. 5 star hotel in the center of Athens, literally right next to the main square with all the shops and sites you want to see. View of the Acropolis from the pool (the view at night was just incredible). Staff was actually not that friendly at all. One waiter even told... More

My wife is from Thessaloniki. We visit several times a year from California. We have been to many of the local hotels as well as several of the islands. Electra Palace is very conveniently located downtown near the promenade ( no beach access ). There are great places to eat and shop, all within walking distance. The hotel accommodations are... More

Great location in Athens. Rooms are comfortable & clean. Walking distance to all the major sites, amazing view from the pool & good breakfast selection. If you stay here there's a wonderful restaurant just around the corner. Family owned and deliciously authentic food.

The views to the Acropolis from this hotel are stunning, and swimming in the pool beneath such a monument is delightful. We spent 4 nights here, 2 in an Acropolis view suite and 2 in a standard room. The rooms are fine, beds comfortable and everything worked well. On the downside, this is a very impersonal hotel. Staff range from... More

Location can not be beat! By far, this is one of the most pleasant hotels in the Plaka in Athens. This is our third time here and the quality of our stay always exceeds expectations. Staff is professional and since they know each other well, they make your stay seem like being in a fancy villa than hotel, yet all... More

The last peoples items were still around the room. Clothing under bed, water bottle, items in drawers. Breakfast was very basic for that calibre of hotel. Maintenance were... More
