Perfect location in Athens. Close to the metro station, so can be reached easily by metro from the airport. Clean and confortable rooms. Stuff are ok. No free wifi in the room (charge per hour), but available at the reception. Nice bar accross the hotel to hang out till 2 am in morning.

Make no mistake this hotel is a good all rounder, well situated, clean and with friendly staff. The hotel is great for someone who would like to have easy access to the shops, the metro, the restaurants, taxi and bus services. The breakfast is a bit poor for such a standard of hotel, and WIFI is charged per hour. Been to cheaper hotels in Athens where at least the WIFI connection is free. Something for management to consider. Otherwise great hotel !

Excellent hotel for its location and service, just close to everything: metro station, restaurants, Sintagma square and Parliament crossing the street, stores just in the best street in Athens, walking distance to Monasteraki and Placa, main stop of hop-on-hop-off busese and trains.

Wonderful rooms, staff and location. The place to stay in Athens! The hotel Breakfast was excellent, with fresh-squeezed orange juice and a variety of items. The location was right by all major shopping and transportation to airport. Very safe, comfortable and convenient. The rooms were updated and we slept like babies!

Besides the perfect location specially for the clueless tourists, the breakfast, cleanliness, price, amenities, room, and staff are flawless. If you do not like the hustle & bustle of the area you can get away to anywhere in the city via foot or subway in a jiff. I would stay again if St. George is fully booked.

Room Tip: If you are used to huge rooms the standard rooms may be on the smaller size. But if you are a true c...

The Electra Hotel is in a very comfortable location, near Syntagma and Plaka, near taxi and bus stop. Rooms are small but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is excellent and changes daily offering local specialties. Good possibility with facilities of Electra Palace. The staff is very friendly.

Room Tip: Perhaps better higher floors.
