Excellent overall

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.

Family getaway in Athens

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!

Excellent hotel in prime location

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.

Good Location !

This hotel's location is very good. It is very near to the Metro station "Syntagma", center of Athens. You can walk to many places to sightseeing and shopping. The hotel was very quiet. But the bathroom was too small and hard to use. It was not the nicest, or the most luxurious hotel I've ever stayed at, but it was not bad for the money.

I would surly recommend this hotel. It had everything we needed. Close to all important sites, walking distance. Chat tours that we booked all our tours with operates through this hotel. We were picked up for all four tours directly from the lobby. We were so busy that absence of the internet in the room was not a problem.

Best location

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.

Good centrally located hotel

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.

Excellent service despite disruption at time of a demonstration

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.

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.
