We have booked in Electra Hotel for post-cruise stay in Athens for 1 night. The area is nice a nice shopping area that is close to Plaka area. The hotel is obviously not new, however, the staff are friendly. We asked for early check-in but the hotel couldn't meet our desire as I understand that such request depends on the... More

My 2 friends and I shared a room for a couple nights stay and enjoyed our stay. The extra bed was pretty firm, but for a place to sleep it was fine. The location is great for hitting the tourist spots. Staff was nice and helpful when we had questions. Overall great place to stay.

Three friends stayed overnight. The hotel was in a great central spot on the main pedestrian street. The reception staff were friendly and helpful especially the man on the front door. He made sure we had directions and safety tips. The breakfast was really good too. Would happily recommend.

The hotel has a beautiful top deck rooftop bar, grill and pool. You should know that the hotel is in the heart of Plaka, so if you don't enjoy being kept up all night to the melodic tunes of Rage Against The Machine, I highly recommend booking elsewhere. The noise is not the hotels fault, they did their best to... More

I booked in this hotel via expedia.com. Arrived to the reception to be welcomed by a poker-face front-office clerk who frowned in my face and told me that my booking was cancelled because my credit card could not be pre authorized. His eyes didn't blink. I informed him that my card was working and that they should have informed me... More

We stayed at the Electra Hotel Athens in 2014 and we decided to stay here again and it was a perfect stay. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is delicious and tasty, we cannot find any fault with the hotel. Everyone at the hotel was helpful. The restaurant at the hotel is fantastic, again the food at the restaurant was... More

The hotel was in a perfect location for what we wanted to do in Athens but I think it was still overpriced. The room was clean and breakfast was ok. The service though was not great, particularly the front desk. Every time you asked them questions about the best way to get somewhere, restaurant recommendations etc. they seemed inconvenienced.

We spent four nights at the Electra before heading to Paros for the rest of our trip. You can't beat the location. You are right on Ermou street which is a pedestrian only street with lots of shopping! It's a couple of blocks away from Syntagma Square where you'll find the parliament, changing of the guards, loads of busses and... 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.
