Stately, with the air of an era long gone, the Electra Palace Athens, hospitable and aristocratic, awaits to welcome you in the heart of the city. Classical in its architecture and design, blending beautifully with the noble historical buildings of the Plaka area, the hotel’s elegant luxury is complemented by the majestic views of the Acropolis that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, pool, rooms and suites. Marble bathrooms; soft duvets; handmade carpets; custom furniture; these are but a few of the details that make the Electra Palace Athens luxuriously enjoyable. The amenities of our hotel will leave you wanting for nothing more: for your comfort and enjoyment, here you will find satellite T.V.s, laptop size electronic safes, Wi-Fi internet connection, and fully equipped bathrooms with hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, magnifying mirror and more. Right in the city center and within walking distance from all major sights, easily accessible by car or public transport, the Electra Palace Athens is the ideal hotel for your stay in Athens whether you are here for business or leisure: spend a summer day at our outdoor swimming pool, soaking up the sun of Athens as it rises above the Acropolis – or spend it shopping in the city’s lively markets. Wander through the ancient Agora and visit the Parthenon – then wonder at its glory, all dramatically lit at night, from the balcony of your room. Stroll around the city under the autumn rain, then warm up in the hotel’s sauna. Relax after a day’s hard work - or blow off some steam - at the indoor pool or our gym. Enjoy our delicious contemporary greek cuisine at the award winning “Electra Palace Roof Garden” or at the “Motivo” in the lounge, or with a drink at the “Duck Tail”, our British inspired bar. For bigger celebrations or for business events in the heart of Athens, our hotel’s five-star service extends to our seven meeting rooms and ballrooms: fully equipped, air-conditioned and naturally lit, our halls can cater for up to 350 people for any event type, no matter how formal: host your business meeting here, or organize a successful conference. Or, have the reception or banquet of your dreams, tasteful and impeccable, a festive testament to your own sophisticated style.

A very good choice if you are looking for a place in the centre and near the Acropolis, Monastiraki and Plaka area. It's a lovely building with a garden and large lobby area. It also has a swimming pool with a view, but due to weather, we were unable to enjoy. What gives it full points is the beautiful view of the Acropolis from the rooftop restaurant on the 8th floor. This is also the breakfast room. The first room we had was relatively small for such a hotel and it had no view at all. Next day we changed to an Acropolis facing room, with balcony, for an extra 50E. The food at the rooftop restaurant was excellent and the service very good The only reason why I take one star away is the lack of warmth, friendliness at the reception. This is definitely not difficult to improve as friendliness and hospitality/warmth are so much part of the greek psyche! So, hopefully, after our next stay, the stars/rating will be full marks!!

We stayed in a junior suite - plenty of room and a nice balcony. due to covid restrictions housekeeping were not allowed in the room when we were there but when asked they brought fresh towels, toiletries ect. Good communal areas, nice garden and seating areas. Very limited sunbeds available round the pool - small space - beautiful if you could get a space but very limited. friendly staff at reception

The first person we met in the hotel was the Hotel porter who is a credit to the hotel. He was polite, courteous readied our bags while we waited to check in. He was meticulous with following Covid precautions. A good start to our stay in the hotel. Electra Palace you should be proud of him.

Great rooftop pool, shabby rooms, out of their way unhelpful staff! Extremely disappointed at the check-in staff member (Anna). We have stayed at the hotel for 7 nights, more than any other guest at the hotel as guests seem to use the hotel for a night or two before heading to the Greek islands. Bearing in mind it’s an expensive hotel to stay for 7 nights, you would presume Anna would have gone out of her way to be helpful regarding checkout time (our only request during our stay) - she did the opposite. We asked reception the day before check out if we could check out at 2pm rather than the usual 11am, he said it should be fine as the hotel was empty, but to check on the day. Today, we checked with reception as asked, Anna gave a flat out “No”. She was rude, shouted at us and had no regard or interest that we’d stayed at the hotel for 7 nights!!!! She should approach customers with positivity and a “yes I’ll look into that”, rather than a flat out “no”. After asking Anna after breakfast and pursuing the matter asking for manager involvement, we were allowed to stay until 2:00pm. Our flight is at 10:30pm tonight and we have been left on the streets of Athens with no access to the pool or washing facilities. Sad ending to the holiday, will never stay at this hotel again. Electra Palace and Anna should be ashamed of themselves! We have friends/family visiting Athens in a couple of weeks, we’ve warned them to stay away! I hope this review makes you all think twice before booking.

Dear customer Thank you for your review. Our customer's feedback is always much appreciated, as it help us to improve our level of service. We're sorry to read your impressions of Electra Palace, especially because it focuses on an individual event. Anna is always polite with customers and trying to fulfill their requests, as the rest of our staff does. Please keep in mind that there are new disinfection, time consuming protocols upon checkout, in this covid era we are going through, for the safety of our customers. We really hope to welcome you again Sincerely
