It was very hot while we were there and they were able to give us a fan to help cool to room when the air conditioner couldn't keep it as cool as we like. Very helpful and great location. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.!!!!!!!!

The last time we stayed in this hotel was many years ago. And what a change but also what continuity. The change is in the level of luxury brought in by the renovation. We stayed in a suite and it was - for European standards - spacious and well appointed. The views could not be bettered - directly at the Acropolis! The 'continuity' comes from the position - in the heart of the Plaka but also close to practically everything the visitor would appreciate and look for in the heart of Athens. The continuity comes also from the remarkable staff who continue to be kind, easy going, helpful and accommodating - from finding the 'room' long before the check-in time to the advice on restaurants, taxi fares and so on. The cleanliness was exemplary, not withstanding that we observed guests doing their best to reduce it - from sitting with dirty feet on the common areas furniture to throwing rubbish on the floor.
There is a charming garden with a restaurant, where also the breakfast is served. And what a breakfast in variety and quality!
The pool on the 4th Floor is worth going if only for further views and for the nice bar.
After 4 days we had to leave but we know that when back in Athens this is the only place we will choose again. (We have stayed on a couple of occasions in the past in one of the "Very Big" name hotels nearby but now we regret that we did not remember about Electra Palace at the time! Strongly recommended!

Room Tip: A Junior Suite, preferably at the higher floors and definitely with views of the Acropolis.

A very nice hotel with all you need, clean, quiet and just in the heart of the old city - Placa.
A gastonomic restaurant on the roof gives you a fantastic view over the Acropolis as well as a roof swimming pool with a bar. You can also enjoy good service and a very good food with local wines that are not bad.
Around the hotel you will find plenty of small shops and tavernas - the place where you get good food at a low price.

Room Tip: Even a standard room is quiet big and has everything you need for a short stay. We had the room loo...

The hotel is in a perfect spot in the Plaka district and close to the Acropolis, Monastiraki and the shopping strips of Ermou and Stadiou. The staff were always accommodating especially when we arrived before check-in time and our room was available.

Breakfast is included and was plentiful and extensive. Considering its location, there is hardly any noise from neighbouring properties or traffic.

From the moment the doors to the marble airconditioned foyer slid open we knew we had made the right choice. Friendly efficient and attentive reception staff welcomed us and as we arrived before official check in time, allocated us a slightly better room than the standard we were booked into. The beds and pillows were the most comfortable I have experienced, even better than my very good bed at home! Although the bathroom isn't huge it was perfectly fine and the shower great. Lovely towels and dressing gowns too.
Breakfast was a full buffet and if you wanted something that wasn't there you only had to ask.The pool on the 5th floor roof garden was very welcome and it was great to sit on a sunlounger looking at the Acropolis. We ventured to the 7th floor roof terrace late one night with a drink and the views were stunning.
All the staff we met were wonderful, especially reception and the waiting staff at breakfast. A real gem in the heart of Plaka.

This hotel has a very central and safe location, with very nice public areas and a great breakfast, with capability to have breakfast outside on a lovely patio. The rooms are somewhat small and European-style, with very few electrical outlets and cramped bathrooms, but the staff will bring you a power strip and just about anything else you need. What made this place superior for me was the excellent attention I received from the staff when Hotels.com messed up my reservation and when Alitalia lost my bag in Rome with all my clothes in it. The staff literally made 20-25 calls a day, including a call to airport security to shake up the lost and found people at the airport! My bag came 2 days later, but I really believe if not for the wonderful staff, especially Nikos, my bag would still be lost. Two enthusiastic thumbs up!
