We stayed there for 2 days. Location is right on ermou street, walking distance to all major places of interests in the old town. What I like most about the hotel is they use Korres for the shampoo, shower gel. Other than that, hotel room we are assigned to is a corner room and a bit small, just about enough... More

Our workshop room had air conditioning not working. We asked to get it repaired but they could not manage do fix it. A little bit inconvenient when you have 37 degrees. Anyway, the food was decent although the service can be better, considering the kind of place you are in.

Choose this hotel for location beyond anything. Rooms are a bit dated, breakfast is nothing special, staff is terrible, but the yogurt is great. You can get a room facing Ermou and open the full length window and flash the world below.

Electra Hotel is very conveniently located right in the center of Athens, walking distance to most sights, museums, Plaka, Monastiraki and the underground. I had wanted to stay at their sister hotel, the Electra Palace but it was fully booked. In the end, it didn't make a difference. Infact we were closer to Syntagma and right on Ermou, the pedestrain... More

You can't beat the location on Ermou just around the corner from the King George and Bretagne hotels. You are in the heart of the shopping and entertainment district and still a reasonable walk to the Plaka, Acropolis, and other sights. Be warned -- rooms are TINY, even by European hotel standards, but clean. When they mean a "single", they... More

Firstly we booked 2 standard rooms and got upgraded to superior rooms for free as there was availability, which was a very good surprise. Then the staff at this hotel is amazing, the people at the front desk are always smiling and... More

We did not stay here, but stopped in for a coffee and a mid-afternoon snack while walking around Athens. This place was a welcome break from the heat of the street. We ordered a Greek coffee which was super awesome and traditional. We also had the bruschetta and grilled veggie appetizer which was phenomenal. Seriously. I ordered this same dish... More

Stayed here for two nights when we visited Athens. The location was great, right in the middle of the busy shopping Ermou street, across from Syntagma square and the parliament building. The best thing about staying here was the ability to walk out the door and have many shops, restaurants, taxi's and the hop on/hop off bus pick-up spot. The... More

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
