We stayed for 2 nights as part of our honeymoon. Its a fabulous hotel in a great location. We did not have a view of the Acropolis from our room, but the view from the rooftop pool is incredible and I would strongly recommend eating in the restaurant to see the sunset.

The location of this hotel is excellent. It is within walking distance of all major attractions such as the Acropolis, New Acropolis museum, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Monastiraki flea market etc. It is also easily accessed from the airport via the metro as it is a short and easy walk from Syntagma station. There are lots of nice restaurants nearby... More

We enjoyed the location of Electra palace. Close to everything we wanted to see. Breakfast was very nice and varied. Room size and bed were nice. Unfortunately the pool bar tender was very rude! The restaurants around the hotel were very good.

This hotel was great. When I first arrived in Athens and took a taxi from the airport, I was unsettled by how dirty and uncharming the city seemed. I have to say that this hotel is in a FANTASTIC location which is perfect for touring the city and is located within walking distance of the only major sites worth seeing.... More

We spent 3 nights at the Electra and found it very enjoyable. As other reviewers have mentioned, the location is great, we walked to the Acropolis in 15 minutes. There are lots of great restaurants nearby and we found the staff is very attentive. The rooftop bar has a 5 star view with a very good restaurant on the open... More

Wonderful central location, easy to take the train to from the airport (be careful of pickpockets!) and easy to walk to nearly all the main tourist attractions. The view from the room was atrocious (the concrete side of the building next door) and was also a little on the small side but very nicely decorated and clean. Disappointingly this was... More

Overall, our stay was pleasant, however there are a few things that keep this from being a luxury hotel. Prior to our arrival, we requested car service from the airport. We were a bit surprised to find a man with a taxi to drive us. If we'd wanted a taxi, we could've flagged one ourselves, we expected a hotel sedan.... More

After 15 days Island hopping we arrived at Electra Palace uncertain of what to expect of Athens. This is a fantastic city and Electra Palace is in the best location to enjoy it! We had a standard room on the 4th floor. View of a courtyard. We were not spending time looking out the window. We were out all day... More
