On my first trip traveling to Athens on business, I was given the name of the Electra Palace from a colleague who told me the location was not only near our offices (close to Syntagma Square) but also in the heart of the Plaka. A bit worn out from my travels, the doorman opened the taxi door, gave me a... More

We stayed 3 nights at the E P H mainly because of its fabulous location. The view of the Acropolis is truly fantastic from their roof terrace, where you can either dine or enjoy a drink. The Hotel functions like clockwork and is reliable, however, it is not luxurious and is rather dated, but everything seems to work. We stayed... More

Hotel staff did everything possible to help. Early check in, instructions and advice. The hotel has a small indoor pool in addition to the rooftop pool which was a pleasant surprise. The location in convenient, right in the Plaka, short walk to many of the attractions. Spacious rooms (we stayed in "Triples"). Great breakfast.

Last time in Athens we stayed at Grand Bretagne which was very nice but we realized it would be much more enjoyable to stay inside the Plaka area. The Electra Palace is in a wonderful location, and right next to the pedestrian streets with wonderful restaurants and shops. Less than 10 minute walk to Acropolis. Our room was a little... More

Easy online booking - responded promptly to all enquiries. Very central location - perfect for us as we only had one day. Nicely appointed, very clean and classy.. We took the inclusion of the fixed dinner menu. Spectacular view, generous meal. We stayed in early April, so all was fairly quiet, and service was great.

We stayed at Electra Palace for one night at the beginning of our 2 week trip in Greece. You can't beat the location of this hotel. It's in the heart of the Plaka and is walking distance to many shops and restaurants, as well as the Acropolis. We ate lunch at the rooftop restaurant which overlooks the outdoor pool and... More

Our initial room was very hot and so had difficulty sleeping at night. They did not have the air conditioning on yet despite it being 20+ celcius during the day. Our second time there, the night before we left Greece, they upgraded our room and gave us one overlooking the Acropolis. It was quite nice, though still very hot in... More

Our first stay and it was great! Our room had an amazing view and at night if felt so impressive. Staff are very good and the bathrooms very nice. My wife loved the large mirror in the room and it is the first time we have seen a feature like this in a hotel. Good value and we would go... More

These were very very nice with views of the Parthenon which in the evening was lite up and looked stunning. We ate in the Hotel on the... More

Very nice hotel! Friendly personnel, relatively cheap (in April, however-- not sure about the prices in the high season). Great terrasse and a roof-top restorer and swimming pool. Excellent situation nearby Acropole.
