“Dec. 20, 2012-Amazing Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2013

My husband & I stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel Dec. 2012. I am a person in a wheelchair and although we were aware that this hotel is not listed as an accessible hotel we were taken care of. We were given a larger room, with a bathtub seat which also had the facets that were installed directly at arm’s length near the seat. The entrance to the hotel has easy access; elevators, restaurant’s and the doors were wide enough for my wheelchair. Staff were amazing, room service great, hotel overall appearance beautiful and a great location. When leaving the hotel and turning directly right will bring you to the Acropolis and left, then the first lift to all the city district stores & other major attractions. Their hotel restaurant has a view to die for, service and food amazing. It was a great vacation. The people were helpful and kind. We both enjoyed the many little alley streets with many restaurant & small clothing stores. And need I forget the bakeries and homemade candy stores. Like OMG, the best displays I have ever seen and yes very good too..LOL… Would we go back? You bet your life we would…Great place to relax, explore & have in to.

Great hotel with perfect location (Syntagma, Acropolis, Monastiraki, Plaka and a lot of restaurants in the immediate neighborhoods), wonderful viem on the Acropolis from some rooms as well as from the roof top restaurant. The service was really excellent with very kind and helpful staff. Very good breakfast?

This is the best choice in Athens!
Best acropolis view, best service, best location, best rooms..
There's nothing bad in this hotel, in particular the price for all this luxury!
Ok there other very good hotels in Athens but this is absolutely the best you can find at the cheapest price!
So it's better don't lose this occasion!

Great hotel with fantastic location and exceptional service. It's not the first time we stay at Electra Palace and it certainly won't be the last. The hotel is very well maintained and the staff do everything they can in order to make your stay comfortable. Breakfast is plentiful and of good quality. Once you step outside you are in the heart of the historic centre of Athens and everything is within walking distance. We didn't use the spa facilities so I couldn't rate them. As far as we are concerned there is nothing negative about this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms with view to Acropolis are special.

We stayed at the Electra Palace hotel for 3 nights during October half term week and loved it.

The hotel itself is in a small side street and first impressions were - "what have we done"! However one inside the hotel more than lives up to it's five star rating. We had a room on the fifth floor and whilst not enormous was more than adequate for a short stay and was spotlessly clean. We were on the Acropolis side of the building, but not quite high enough for a view from our room, so I'd ask for a room on the seventh floor or above.

The infinity pool on the roof was lovely after a tiring morning walking around the town and had the best view of the Parthenon from anywhere in the town.

Breakfast was lovely. Warm, fresh and plenty of it. Service was great too. They had a great waffle making machine which our son loved. Can't comment on dinner as we ate out all the time - loads of great tavernas within a five minute walk of the hotel.

The hotel is within walking distance of all the major attractions and also close to the metro if you want to go further afield as well. Staff on reception were really helpful in given advice, directions etc.

Definitely somewhere we're be returning to

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the Acropolis side of the building above the seventh floor for the best views

Stayed here as part of a large group pre and post cruise. The rooms are small but very well equipped. The service is impeccable as is the food . The setting of course is the plus point. Meals in glorious sunshine overlooked by the Acropolis are what holiday memories are made of. The grand lobby and pool areas were lovely places to chill. We were a large lively bunch of travellers of mixed origin, but the staff were always courteous and polite. I would definitely choose this hotel when visiting Greece on another occasion and recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Athens. A proper 5*gem.

Stayed August 2012, traveled with friends

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.

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.
