location is Perfect . The hospitality is outstanding at this hotel. Service for breakfast lunch and evening dinning was first class. I was ill during my stay due to eating out at a local restaurant. The staff at Electra were extremely helpful. I recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel roof pool looks directly at the acropolis. Although too cold for a dip in Feb, the indoor pool was lovely. The room was neat and clean, we were on level 3 so the view was in to the house across the street! But the bed mattress was FAB. The aircon didn't seem to work so kept the window... More

This is a lovely friendly hotel in a fantastic location, with all the luxury touches that you need to feel really at home. The breakfast was as good as everyone said it would be - with a special mention to the Greek specialties and the waffle-machine, which got a lot of use for our kids. Athens is clearly having a...

Stayed 3 nights with Acropolis view. Room was small. It was snowing that period and we could not use the balcony much, other than for taking selfi with Acropolis in the back. Fitness and the indoor pool was nice to have as the weather out was miserable, but they are not big. Given the very convenient and central situation, we... More

I stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Simple rooms, clean and nice amenities. Great location in Plaka area of Athens, one step from Syntagma square and Acropolis. In the cons the very average breakfast in both quality and quantity.

This hotel is perfect in location for all the sights. The longest walk is to the National Archaeology Museum. The breakfast choices are probability the best I have ever seen, meaning that even a gluten free eater has choices. All the staff are charming. We used the Jacuzzi and pool everyday as the best way to relax after a day... More

I booked this hotel as I wanted a 5* in a central location and it definitely didn't disappoint. I paid for a junior suite which was perfectly nice but very hot, even in February. We were told the air con was centrally controlled and not switched on until the spring so there was nothing we could do but open the... More
