“a very hub for shuttle in Athens,”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

the location is very important, but the room are small, and the internet very expensive.
the place define the hotel as an hub, from You can move with shuttle path to arrive in the main places. just near there are different type of restaurant, with different rate quality/price.
In the specific the indications that give me the people working in the hotel, demonstrated high knowledge of the correct way to the heritage, and high knowledge of the near restaurant. In my idea those people thing more to my goodnes than the one of the restaurants.

The hotel is located near the central Syntagma Square in Athens, the buses from the airport located five minutes walk away. All major sights of Athens walking distance from the hotel. The rooms are large comfortable and clean. Good breakfast. Staff were kind and polite. Free internet in the lobby.

A nice Hotel in the center of Athens. But the room was very small, and internet access in the room is very expensive. Nevertheless for business meetings you are well located and also if you wish to have a quick tour of the center of Athens, which you should do as it is a wonderful city.

Ideally situated at the start of west-east Ermou Street which begins a short block from the facade of Parliament Building in center of city. On a pedestrian street with many top-name shops. Benaki, Cycladic Art and Byzantine and Christian museums a short walk on the other side of Parliament Building. Also walked back about a half mile from the New Acropolis Museum. Only 5 Euros by taxi from National Archeological Museum [have a map and negotiate taxi price before getting in]. Modern hotel with excellent helpful service, restaurant with great food and bar open to the street. Rooms are sound-proof. A well-located excellent hotel to see the city.

Room Tip: We stayed on 8th floor facing the street with great view and soundproof.

Very short but perfect stay at the Electra, perfectly situated at the center of Athens. Though the decoration is not exactly my style, the price for vaue is excellent and the staff is extremely friendly. Definitely a good place.

We booked this hotel with a certain thought in our mind since a lot of reviews are quite bad. We couldn't have made a better choice: the rooms were not tiny at all, the breakfast buffet was rich and delicious and the staff extremely helpful. They even helped me fixing my suitcase at the departure and taped it back together as good as they could. I would recommend this hotel to everyone who wants to have a cosy, clean and helpful hotel in a great location.
We haven't checked out the fitness room or pool.
