Family getaway in Athens

Would recommend Mon, Jul 14, 2014
Location, location, location, this hotel is centrally located which is great for sightseeing, shopping and the metro and bus To the airport is just 2 minutes walk. Room sizes are a touch on the small size but the highlight is the fantastic spread at breakfast. The best freshly squeezed orange juice I've had!

Attractions

Great central location to cover all sightseeing and shopping.

Best location

Would recommend Fri, Jul 26, 2013
The hotel is across Syntagma Square, where one can take the subway to the airport and back. it is also in a pedestrian-only street, which minimizes noise. The hotel was very clean and had a good full breakfast buffet. The rooms were small but perfectly adequate.

Attractions

It is in the center of things. Everything (restaurants, attractions, nightlife) is within walking distance.

Excellent service despite disruption at time of a demonstration

Would recommend Sat, Sep 29, 2012
Excellent room, service and staff. Metres away from Syntagma Square, normally a plus but Police tear gas was used in the area during my visit which necessitated a brief closed/shuttered period for the hotel. Once the gas and demonstration had cleared full service was resumed quickly.

Time saver

Use the Metro, its development has reduced traffic a little but the roads are still busy and slow. Bus x95 best second alternative to airport.

The staff was very helpful in allowing us to use their computer and printer to download our boarding passes. The beds were super comfortable and the hotel breakfast was full of fresh fruit and a nice assortment of hot foods as well. It is close to Plaka with incredible views of the Acropolis.

A Pleasant, Comfortable place to stay.

Would recommend Wed, Aug 1, 2012
Centrally located hotel, with very little noise from the surrounding areas.Walking distance to the Metro and only a short walk to the Acropolis. Unfortunately we were disappointed to find there was no swimming pool to relax in, nor any games room . The Hotel is Ideal for bed and breakfast , which is, of limited choice.

Attractions

Syntagma square, is right outside the Hotel and opposite this is the Parliament.A short walk brings you to The Acropolisand nearby is the Metro for those who wish to venture further.

Excellent location , seconds from syntagma square. The X95 gets you from the airport straight to its door. The rooms are very clean. The only downside is u have to pay for the Internet in the room, but it is free in the lobby. Overall recommended.

Good centrally located hotel

Would recommend Wed, Sep 28, 2011
After reading some of the reviews, it was with a little trepidation that we arrived at the Electra. But we were actually very happy with it: The staff were all very friendly and helpful, the room was very clean, the bathroom modern and clean with everything working very well. Yes, the carpet in the bedroom was a little stained and could do with a good shampooing, but everything else was just fine, including the buffet breakfast, which offered a great choice of all kinds of fruit, yogurts, cereals, breads, freshly pressed orange juice, eggs, meats, cheeses, cakes, etc. And the location is great, just a few yards from Athens' central Syntagma Square, but not too noisy as the street the hotel is on is pedestrian. Would definitely stay there again. It's not high end luxury, but a good, comfortable mid-range hotel.
