Great value for money with their semi flexible rate €100 per nigh (€97 plus €3 tax per night) in September 2021 We stayed for 2 nights and because they had no availability for the 3 night (I later decided to extend the trip for one more night after I already booked the 2 nights in this hotel) So I had one night in a different hotel (O&B boutique hotel in Athens) and let me tell you only after we got to the second hotel I realised how much better the Electra is. Location is great, central on a pedestrian street. Safer that someone other parts of Athens. Room was quiet and beds were very comfortable. Bathroom could do with an update but it was adequate Breakfast - they had a good choices and view is really nice. Concierge was very polite and they printed my passenger locator form for no charge (which I needed for a journey back to the UK and it’s just easier or have it printed than trying to show it on a phone at the airport. The form can only be done 48 before departure to the UK so I couldn’t have done it at home in the UK before the trip) By no means is this 5*, but then again for true 5* you would pay a lot and I mean a lot more money. Solid 3.5* especially when compared to other hotels in the area.

I have stayed at hundreds of hotels over the years and not a single one hit the high mark in all areas. This hotel is an incredible value…style, location, service, amenities are all top notch. Elegant but welcoming and comfortable…responsive and helpful staff…excellent food ….comfortable rooms and spacious baths. Case in point…we emailed prior to our arrival to ask about a COVID testing location and had an instant answer with a link and information. We again emailed as our ferry kept being delayed and we knew we would not arrive before the restaurant closed…they arranged a room service to arrive within 10 minutes of tea your room. They reached out early on with a link to a reliable transfer service from the port. I could go on and on…just make it your selection in Athens !

Although this may be considered a lower star hotel in the Electra collection it’s staff behaved like a luxury five star hotel in its superb service Thank you Stavros for finding me the perfect bed where I had the best nights sleep without stress knowing I would be remembered for a wake up call and breakfast box ordered by Joseph before early airport would be there Thank you to the other incredible front desk people including Charalamros and Fofi who made me an appointment with a manicurist and massage treatments at the sister hotel

This was a lovely hotel in the heart of the Plaka- shopping and restaurants everywhere. The staff are so friendly and go above and beyond on each interaction. The rooftop bar is the best place to watch the sunset and to eat breakfast. The breakfast was also lovely!
