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.

Neighborhood
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.

We stayed at Electra Palace for 1 night on the way back from The Greek Islands. The lobby is extremely grand, and very luxurious. Our check in process was extremely smooth. The hotel is very well located with a 5 minute walking distance from Plaka and Monastiraki. The hotel is also very well located from major tourist attractions such as Acropolis. The rooms are quite large and has an old hotel touch to it. Equipped with modern amenities, the rooms are very comfortable. However a little bit of refurbishment is needed. The lobby is definitely more grand on comparison to the rooms. The bathrooms are good sized and clean, we had no complaints with house keeping. The breakfast is in their top floor restaurant and has a moderately sized spread. The coffee is excellent! The restaurant overlooks the entire Athens and Acropolis and is a beauty! The indoors and outdoor areas are both fabulous! Totally loved it. All in all it was a good stay. I would recommend the hotel to people who would be visiting Athens.

hotel was lovely. well kept. bed was firm with quality linens. decent rainhead shower. hot water kettle in room to make hot coffee/tea each morning. balcony view of the Acropolis amazing every morning and night. I wish there were plugs or usb outlets next to bed but there was multiple outlets on the desk to be able to charge all your devices. Fitness room is smaller than the hotel room, only 3 cardio machines and 1 rack of weights, but no one was ever there so not a problem for me (disclaimer, there was also few people in the hotel since low season and before COVID19 lockdown) Spa pool was heated with whirlpool jets in one corner. Long enough for one long underwater breathstroke so not for mini laps, but you could at least still stretch out your arms. Outdoor pool like most outdoor pools in Athens was shut down during this time of year. Location was perfect. On a smaller side street so not much traffic, quiet. walk 2 blocks north and you were in a more locals side of town with international cuisines (japanese, indian) and a little further with great local shops and then the major brand retailers. Walk 2 blocks the other direction and you hit the more tourist section with flea market less than 5 minutes away. Acropolis was about a 15-20 minute walk as well. Thank you Electra for taking good care of my son and I while there. Would definitely come back again.

Stayed here for 7 days,we enjoyed every day of it. The hotel is central to everything and easy to get around. The Staff are cheerful and the room was cleaned everyday. In the evening they get the beds ready for night time with a chocolate each placed on the bed with menu of breakfast order if you need it in room. The breakfast in morning was off high standard and you can sit outside and enjoy the views, while planning your daily trip. Thank you for a great experience and we will hopefully get back.

I had a wonderful 4 night stay in Feb 2020 at The Electra Palace Hotel. From our arrival, Reception staff were professional, engaging and informative. Our Room was clean, spacious and had the added bonus of looking towards the Acropolis. Breakfast each morning was varied and of a high standard, served in the 8th Floor Restaurant & Terrace. The Hotel location is perfect for exploring central Athens and we walked to all major attractions. All staff that we met were a credit to The Electra Palace. A wonderful stay to help celebrate a special birthday.
