Very good location. Beautiful bars & hall & salon. But..... Room about 15sqm very noisy with a balcony with a view on the Acropolis but not from the room, just from tbe balcony !!! And just a view on the dirty terraces from the room. And you pay a good value for that.... Avoid these rooms with view and balcony... More

If you are looking for the best location, good service, convenience and amazing views (remember to request at the time of booking!) then the Electra Palace is perfect. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location is absolutely perfect; you can walk to every single site, restaurants, museums, shops etc. Do not bother to get on the tour bus;... More

What a view! We had a darling suite looking out at the Acropolis. Decent breakfast with adequate choice. Room service was also good. Great beds, comfortable room. Nice showers and toiletries. Super helpful staff. Everything planned as you expect. But this is all about location location location. Not sure it could be any better!

The Electra Palace is situated in the Plaka area, with excellent access to all the surrounding restuarants and bars, the rooms which we booked (acropolis view rooms on the 5thfloor had superb views of the Acropolis and rooms were inter-connecting with separate adjacent balconies). We ate in both the hotel restuarant on the roof one evening which has views looking... More

This is a perfectly located, elegant property in the heart of the city. It was easy to walk to the Plaka, and the views from the rooftop were beautiful. The restaurants and breakfast were excellent, and there are plenty of other dining options nearby. It can be very busy, as it appears many tours are booked here, so the check... More

I have used this hotel a number of times and I strongly recommend it. The rooms are very nice and the staff is polite and eager to assist. Breakfast is very good and I suggest that you try their restaurant which also offers very good dinner choices

The hotel is very well located to walk to the major ancient sites; there are plenty of restaurant options and shops in the area and it is only a few meters away from syntagma square (where the buses that takes you directly to the airport are located). Rooms are good and breakfast is great.

Everything about this hotel was great. We had adjoining rooms (2 adults, 2 kids), and they were both spacious. The free breakfast was great. It was not warm enough to swim but the pool looked like fun. Perfect location - did not need a taxi at all.

Four colleagues and I were in Athens for 2 nights on business. We were not pleased with the hotel booked for us and decided to relocate. A phone call to Electra was all that was needed. George, very efficiently arranged our 5 rooms. The hotel is very welcoming, the rooms spacious and very clean. The coffee making facility in the... More

The Electra Palace is a fantastic place to stay to explore Athens. Located in the Plaka district, the hotel is within walking distance to many characteristic Greek Tavernas, cafes and bars, as well as all of the historical sites that a visit to the ancient city of Athens deserves. The hotel staff are very friendly, and they even helped us... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
