Recently spent 2 nights here with family. I really enjoyed this hotel. Other family mentioned that the rooms were small (per European standard). We had a suite on the 9th floor which was of a good size and had a nice balcony off it (you could see changing of the guard if you craned your neck to the right a bit). Hotel in perfect location for sight seeing, visiting local restaurants at night. Other than free breakfast upstairs we didn't eat at restaurant, but we were up there for cocktails both nights and the bartender is fantastic, the view of the Acropolis is stunning and the prices were not crazy for a hotel bar. Overall very happy with stay.

Electra Hotel offers alot. The reception is very helpful and try their best to provide the best service they can. They even tried to provide adapters for the chargers for us! And generally very approachable. The musicians in the terrace at night, Apollo and Giola are fantastic to listen to. They sing and play music that is wonderful and should be appreciated!

Our one night stay at Electra wasn't too great. Upon calling the hotel to see if they had parking, they advised they have a lot just 3-4 blocks away where we can leave our car. We were able to find it easily, but the streets to get there are very tight and the foot traffic is intense. We weren't planning on renting a car especially knowing beforehand the location of the hotel, but decided to anyways since Athens airport was at least a 40 minute drive and would have cost us a lot more to take a taxi. To start, they offer no luggage services from their parking lot near Electra palace (their other hotel), so we needed to drag our very heavy suitcases for at least 4 blocks to get to the hotel. Keep in mind, Athens is hilly so we were exhausted by the time we made it to the lobby. After complaining to the staff about the luggage services from the parking lot, they basically told us that they don't offer these types of requests. We were 2 people checking in and they put us in a room that was fit for only one person. It was very tight and we barely had any room to maneuver with the size of our suitcases. The rooms are rundown and not modern at all. Very small bathroom/shower and a view of the back alley. I was pleased that we only stayed one night because of this. The only positive is that the hotel is near many shops, restaurants, and only a 15 minute walk to the Acropolis which we had time to visit the next morning. I will not be staying here again if I come back to Athens.

Dear Nicole G., First and foremost we would like to thank you for choosing Electra Hotel Athens for your stay. It is with great concern to note that you were not fully satisfied with the bathroom and your room. Your input is being taken into serious consideration and reviewed with our team. As far as the issue with the luggage we understand that there had been a big miscommunication issue for which we apologize for the inconvenience caused. Our hotel does not have parking facilities. When guests inform us that the are coming with a car we usually urge them to stop nearby, unload their luggage and then proceed to park their car. Wish you could give us another opportunity to welcome you back and prove that we can serve you better. With Best Regards, The Electra Hotel Athens Team

So good to stay in a professionally run hotel. From the moment you step off the hot streets of Athens into its cool interior, you are met with excellent service & clean, comfortable, friendly surroundings. The roof top terrace was an unexpected delight. Breakfast was the best of the holiday. The location is second to none. I will definitely be back. Well done to your fantastic staff Electra!

Stayed 3 nights at this hotel. The views from the roof top restaurant were perfect. The area surrounding the hotel has many places to eat and there are some nice bars. We walked to the Acropolis from the hotel, a 20 minute walk from the hotel. The rooms are snug but not tiny. There were fresh eggs being cooked at breakfast with fresh coffee or tea and freshly squeezed orange juice. Plenty of other choices of savory and sweet options.

We had a quick night and lots of shopping at this perfectly located Athens hotel. We loved the rooftop restaurant with nighttime views of the Acropolis and the breakfast buffet the next day. Loved the small room for one person, but would have upgraded had I realized that the view from my room was of another building located very close by. (Maybe 10-15 feet away?) No view and needed to keep my blinds closed so the person in the other window didn't watch in my room. Other than that, I loved this hotel and would absolutely stay here again!

We stayed at the Electra Hotel for 4 nights (19JUN - 23JUN). We were a party of 6. Four adults and two teen girls. We absolutely loved all things about the hotel. First, the location was perfect. You were so close to Plaka, Monastiraki Square, Syntagma and Kolonaki. Second, the staff was fabulous. The front desk was so helpful in setting up tours and making us feel welcomed. In particular, Konstantinos always remembered us by name and greeted us with the warmest smile every time we passed by him in the lobby. During this trip, we stayed at two other hotels in Athens (both 5-star), but we felt that the Electra was not only on par, but better than those. The breakfasts were fabulous. The view from XF Rooftop Restaurant was incredible. The food was always fresh and the service wonderful. Our classic triple rooms could have been a little larger, but the rooms were clean, comfortable, and cold air conditioning which was so much appreciated. For the rate we paid, compared to other premium hotels in Athens City Center, the Electra cannot be beat. We will be back!

After a grueling trip from Arizona to Greece, we arrived exhausted and dazed in Athens by 2pm local time, a private chauffeur picked us up at the airport and all details organized by Nikki our fabulous tour organiser in Greece. Our suite was not ready yet but we dropped our luggage and waited in the lovely lobby having a drink and snack at the the Bar. Once our room was ready they called us and we went to our suite with balcony overlooking the Acropolis, just breathtaking. That night we had dinner on the hotel rooftop which is usually a no no with me but it was just superb and with the view of the Acropolis unobstructed! Their food is top quality for this french picky eater and we loved it so much that we returned for our last night there. They also have a rooftop pool where we rested on lounge chairs for a couple of hours to fight the jetlag. The lovely concierge, (I forgot her name) was so helpful and charming, the maitre D and all waiters , the front desk people and lets not forget the fabulous massage at the Spa with a lovely lady named Mata I think, all of this contributed to make our stay very comfortable and enjoyable. I loved the location of the hotel, really close to Presidential Palace where we walked easily to watch the changing of the Guards, and the proximity to the lovely neighborhood of Plaka that I discovered on my own, delighted with all the boutiques and little cafes and restaurants reminding me of Montmartre 30 years ago, sans mass tourism. By the way, everyone at the hotel spoke perfect english , and we found out that everywhere we went in Greece it was generally the case.
