We just stayed 4 nights last week (Oct 7-11) for the second part of our honeymoon. I was so happy I chose this hotel! It couldn't be in a better location (in the Plaka, the oldest part of the city)- the neighborhood itself is filled with narrow stone streets lined with historical mansions, homes, businesses, etc. We were able to...

A lovely hotel, excellent service, superb location. For a one-night stay in Athens this is perfect. Very easy to get to the Acropolis and to hundreds of friendly, little restaurants. Good shopping in Plaka.

At dinner the terrace area both inside and out offer amazing dinner evening views. Book as soon... More

We enjoyed three nights at the Athens Electra Hotel in the Plaka area. The location was great and it was easy to walk to the Acropolis, Agora, New Acropolis Museum, shops and restaurants, etc.. Our room had a balcony to enjoy the view over the rooftops of Athens to the Acropolis. Stunning. The room was comfortable and well equipped. The... More

We stayed for three nights in early October. Our room was a junior suite with a small terrace and absolutely stunning views of Acropolis. The pool terrace was also quite nice, great views and attentive bar staff. Room was OK - a bit small but OK. The front desk staff were helpful but just a tiny bit arrogant in pointing... More

We had three short stays at this lovely smaller hotel during summer trip to Greece and Turkey. The staff were helpful and efficient, the room was very attractive and clean although a bit on the small side. Lovely view of Acropolis. Breakfast in the garden was our favourite experience at this hotel-something we looked forward to because of good choice... More

We stayed for 8 days in the Electra Palace Hotel, Athens and enjoyed every moment. The buffet breakfasts were well organized and offered a full range of tasty food, we had lunch on the 5th floor terrace with a view of the Acropolis, and dinner in the fine dining room listening to live harp music, also with a view.

We stayed 4 nights (2 at the beginning of our trip, 2 at the end) at the Electra Palace Hotel. The location of the hotel is very convenient for sightseeing. There are plenty of places to eat nearby and many of the tourist sites are in walking distance. The X95 airport bus stop is also a short walk. The hotel... More

We picked to stay at the Electra Palace for one night owing to its good reviews. We arrived to find that our room was no longer reserved, with the reception eventually admitting that the hotel had been overbooked. I was very disappointed with the dismissive manner of the staff who were clearly over run with tour groups. We had been... More
