Electra Palace Athens is a fantastic place to stay. Beautiful view of the Acropolis, service if first class and very efficient from check-in to restaurant to the bar service by the pool. I read some reviews saying service was poor could not be further from the truth. We stayed with our 2 teenage girls, had 2 rooms, yes not the... More

We stayed here for three nights in May 2014. We walked from Syntagma station with suitcases which took us about fifteen minutes. Not that long without suitcases! However we discovered taxis are cheap and would recommend that. The view from the rooftop terrace of the Acropolis is amazing. Our room was a standard double without views and was a bit... More

Central to all of the main sites, a beautiful hotel with a grand entrance. Very clean room that catered for 3 of us who stayed for 3 nights. The room was spacious on the first floor overlooking the lovely courtyard/ garden area. A little noisy in the morning from the courtyard as breakfast is served. The breakfast was magnificent in...

This hotel is in a great spot - perfectly placed for everything in central Athens especially Syntagma, Monastiraki and the Plaka. The hotel is very welcoming and reception and concierge staff extremely friendly and helpful with eg restaurant recommendations. The views of the Acropolis from the rooftop are superb. The pool area bar and restaurant are good - but this... More

We stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel from July 18-20, 2014. The hotel room we had was fine - plenty of towels, a TV, a large bathroom with products, and a good size balcony. The room did not have a king size bed as advertised. The bed was two twins pushed together. I realize this is common in many European... More

Impressive Public Areas including: Entrance Lobby and Reception, Breakfast area, bar and lovely little interior garden. Unbeatable view of the Acropolis from the Roof Garden terrace serving excellent food. Good buffet breakfast. The room itself was barely adequate for a 5 star hotel. Noisy children could be heard from the corridor and adjacent room due to inadequate sound insulation to... More

We started our honeymoon in the greek islands with a 2 night stay at Electra Palace, we arrived and were amazed by the foyer (it really feels like a palace), we were welcomed by the lovely receptionist George who was great throughout our 2 night stay. The hotel is in the centre of Athens, close to everything, perfect for a... More

Location is perfect. beds are amazing, as are the showers and you really appreciate these 2 items after spending a month travelling the islands. Rooftop is fantastic, but the food in the restaurant did not make my socks roll up and down. Cleanliness of the entire hotel is excellent, but the staff at breakfast leave a lot to be desired....lots... More

My family and I stayed her for a week prior to the Easter holiday. Our rooms had a picture postcard view of the Acropolis/Parthenon. The rooms are not large, but they adequate and very comfortable. We had no issue with outside noise. The breakfast was nice, but the warm food tends to cool quickly as guest seem to have difficulty... More
