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.

We stayed here on our recent trip to Athens. Superbly located near to the Acropolis this offers excellent views of the Parthenon from its rooftop pool and restaurant. The rooms were comfortable, staff friendly and very covid aware. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice and dinner was to a high standard. Being gluten free it was good to see that they had an allergen list so that they could advise me on what to eat. Definitely an excellent place to stay in Athens and would certainly recommend dining in the restaurant with an outside table offering superb views of the Parthenon at night.

The location of this hotel is incredible. The spa was a lovely experience and the staff so kind. Also the bartenders at the pool were equally as great. The front desk staff were less than helpful and seemed tired. The rooms were very small but the views from the balcony were amazing. This hotel is great and the location. Makes it worth it but We have stayed at many 5 star hotels and in comparison this is truly more of a 4 star when it comes to accommodations and service.

Exceeded expectations. Concierge arranged taxi from airport —- seamless. Checked in at 11 am and our jr suite with acropolis view was ready! Up to the pool to float around with magnificent view of acropolis while we rested from long journey. Hotel is immaculate, walkable to everything from the acropolis to changing of the guard, Hadrian’s gate and of course the Plaka and adjoining neighborhoods. Very safe and clean area. Rooftop restaurant has breathtaking view — buffet is fantastic. We found staff to be friendly and accommodating. I have no idea why this hotel is getting grumpy reviews about decor. The rooms are exactly as pictured. The style is old school European but luxurious. Comfy bed, very nice linens, towels. Nespresso machine in room. Marble everything in bathroom. The acropolis view balconies are truly amazing. And when you wake up in the middle of the night the Acropolis is lit up and it’s magical. When you are up on the acropolis you can look down and see that he Electra palace is the only hotel in the area with a roof top pool! And trust me when you are sweating up there you can’t wait to get back to the hotel for a nice dip with a view! We can’t wait to return!

The Mr. and I recently spent four nights at the Electra Palace Athens. Our first impression was, "Wow! What a beautiful hotel!" When you add in our comfortable room with a private balcony and a view of the Acropolis, a wonderful, helpful staff, an amazing breakfast with a fabulous view, great location, and a beautiful rooftop pool - it is no wonder we had a stellar experience. We highly recommend this fabulous hotel and would happily stay here again and again!!!
