We would definitely use the Electra Palace again and recommend it to others. A central location with great views - we stayed on the fifth floor and our balcony had a delightful and memorable view over the Acropolis. We walked almost everywhere and even when the metro was necessary its only a 5-10 minute walk to Syntagma. Breakfast was all... More

Perfect location close to many restaurants and shops in Plaka. Clean and sophisticated hotel will very helpful staff! While Athens wasn't our favorite stop on our honeymoon (compared to Santorni and Mykonos), the Electra Palace made our stay much more pleasant!

This great hotel is in Plaka, the old town and very close to the main square, walking distance to the Acropolis and most of Athens! We had booked two rooms for our family. A superior room that had a balcony with views over the Acropolis and a standard room just opposite in the same corridor (thank you reception!). The rooms... More

Three of us recently stayed in this wonderful hotel. Check in was quick, the staff were helpful The room was large enough to fit all if us in (though the spare bed was very uncomfortable) and was well appointed. Breakfast was delicious , you can't beat Greek yoghurt, but the dinner on the terrace upstairs was amazing! The food, the... More

Got there early in the morning (01:00 am), the night auditor was very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean and efficient. Unfortunately they did not have dry cleaning or laundry service available from Friday until Monday on my return to the hotel. That is a shame for a hotel that rates itself 4-5 stars. Breakfast was included with the... More

Nicely updated and clean hotel. Great breakfast. Superb location and great views of the Acropolis. The staff were very helpful and polite. We would stay here any time. We had nice quiet rooms and they ensured that our two rooms were right near each other.

I stayed in this hotel a couple of times, because of its great location (Plaka) and breathtaking view on Acropolis, especially during the night. I stayed every time in Junior Suite, and those rooms are very spacious and comfortable...nice furnished. I never liked breakfast...every time the same and limited if you are not ordering a la carte menu. Bad filter... More

After spending nearly 2 weeks Greek island hoping for our honeymoon, my husband and I were pleasantly surprised when we walked into Electra's lobby. It was large, immaculate and welcoming. Check in was a cinch and we were even upgraded to a fabulous room with a view of the Parthenon! The hotel's pool is a true infinity with a breathtaking... More

Our family of 4 stayed here in July and August 2014 in two Acropolis View rooms on Floor 5 and had an absolutely fabulous stay both times. The daytime and night views of the Acropolis were breathtaking from the spacious balconies with tables and chairs. The rooms were attractive, comfortable and immaculate, with plush mattresses and bedding. A/C worked perfectly... More
