Reviewed January 4, 2014

Very nice hotel in an excellent location. All Athens landmarks in a walking distance. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful. Good breakfast. A lot of bars and tavernas around. Street at which the hotel is located is very often busy and blocked, so make sure you take enough time to order your taxi if you need to catch your flight.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street site kind of noisy. Additional beds in triple rooms not really comfortable.

We opted for the Electra Palace Hotel as it had a view of the Acropolis and seemed like a modern hotel within the old part of the City.

The location was great, we could easily walk to most parts of Athens and from the train station (where the airport train arrives).

The rooms were nice and the balcony overlooking the Acropolis made it extra special. However for a '5*' hotel we expected free wifi and free water in the room. I also found it far too warm in the room - even with the air conditioning at its coolest temperature.

The breakfast was reasonable, it had all the basics.

We would recommend.

Stayed her for a short business trip. Rooms are more than adequate, comfortable and very clean, bathroom spacious, all you could possibly need.
Breakfast is ample and of very high quality and selection.
Will definitely return of in Athens again, hotel is excellently located for sight seeing and public transport options etc

Room Tip: Some rooms are smaller than others so if you want more space state it

We stay in this hotel over new-years-eve. We have two big rooms with a connected door and separate bath-rooms.

It is very clean. Because of the indoor- pool also our children like this trip very much.

Walking distance to all important places. Service is very friendly and good.

We pick this hotel for the central location and reputation. The breakfast was good and replenished efficiently. The staff was very helpful and willing to be of service. The rooms were smaller in size but we were hardly there. We would stay again.

The Hotel has a nice central location. Check-in was quick and flawless. The rooms were spacious, clean and well appointed. The breakfast was very generous to say the least. In general we found the staff to be very efficient and the ambiance to be good. Too bad that they make you pay for WiFi when you have one of the more expensive rooms. There was a good view of the Parthenon from the rooftop pool terrace, but unfortunately for us it was a bit too windy to enjoy it. It is an excellent hotel, but we might be tempted to try somewhere else during our next visit to Athens

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.
