The great location is immensely shaded by the extreme noise from the vehicles on the tiny street in front of the hotel. On top of that the is no air conditioning in the room and the beds are too soft. The hotel selection ruined our vacation. Be aware.

We really enjoyed our 4 night stay at Electra Palace Hotel, in our 5th floor room, right next to the restaurant. Had a room with a view of (or a balcony with a view of) the Acropolis, though not exactly spacious, the storage space was well planned and bath-room was large and comfortable, bed very comfortable-thus good sleep quality; room...

That was a lovely experience. I visited them in January 2015, and the service, food and room were perfect. Just as promised. I highly recommend this place to everyone. The location was the best as it was near to every important attraction. We didn't need to take a taxi at all during our one week visit.

Close to Constitution square this hotel is excellent for both business and tourist travelers. It is near high-end hotels, but much better priced. The staff was also very helpful before and during our stay.

Stayed here 26th-29th Dec. Suberb location, walking distance to the acropolis, syntagma, and other Central sights. Very clean hotel, great breakfast and room service was very nice. The hotel had an indoor swimming pool, while not massive it served it's purpose. The staff where very friendly and offered advice and directions. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Our experience started off on an unpleasant note. Our room was not ready when we arrived at 12:30 p.m. The receptionist was also quite rude and refused to answer our questions while we were checking in. We had a triple room and therefore didn't have a view; since the lady at the reception said no triple occupancy rooms have a... More

We stayed only one night in this hotel, which is located at the foot of the Pantheon. The hotel is perfect for tourists with everything within walking distance. Reception was very efficient and welcoming, our room was spacious with a big comfortable bed. The Wifi worked perfectly, but the biggest surprise was the terrace restaurant. The views on the Acropolis... More

Overall, this is a very good hotel and we were pleased we chose it, but it just misses out on 5 stars for me. The location, as others have commented, is great and within walking distance of everything you would want to see. The public rooms are grand, with marble floors, and the hotel has all the amenities you could... More

We spent some time here on a vacation and it was by complete luck that we found it. Clean, affordable, friendly (… yes..) and an excellent location. Good breakfast and good rooms. We will go back when next in Athens.

This hotel is a little more expensive than some, but well worth it. Also includes full breakfast which you can have inside, or out in the very pretty courtyard. Short walking distance to Plaka and many other tourist hot spots. The roof top restaurant has sensational views of the Acropolis - both night and day. Rooms are very clean and... More
