Electra Palace Hotel

This is a beautiful hotel with a luxurious feel to it. It has an incredible rooftop view of the parthenon. the staff was very attentive polite and knowledgeable. We had booked an additional tour and the man who checked us in knew that it was not going to run the day we had booked (we went in the off season) and took care of our arrangements so that we could go on the only day of the week the day-cruise was going. The location for walking to the main attractions of Athens (acropolis, hadrians library, agora, zeus's temple, kerameikos), souveneirs and a plethora of cafes couldn't get any better. You are right in the heart of Athens tourist culture. The downside is that you will hear a lot of road noise, get a lot of lights from the street, and smell a lot of exhaust, even when you keep you balcony door closed. The rooms were clean and included the standard toiletries and a haidrdryer. If coming from the US you will need a converter for other appliances. There are two restaurants, and the downstairs restaurant has a wonderful buffet breakfast. The upstairs restaurant is not typical of the cafe fare, but it is very delicious, although more expensive.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Try and get as many small euros as possbile. We did encounter trouble trying to make change. The only form of one euro is a coin, and many shops and cafes seemed to have some trouble with having the one and two euro coins.

Great LOCATION but small standard rooms

When we arrived, I was SHOCKED at the small size of the standard room! :( It was just me and a kid (12) and we had two suitcases, 2 backpacks and a carry-on suitcase and it could all barely fit into the room! The bathroom is even smaller. You have practically NO counter space and the tub/shower has a half door so you have to maneuver well to not get water outside of the tub! :( The hotel breakfast is really nice and a great deal...you want to start your day with a good meal to make it through a day of sightseeing in Athens. The workers at the hotel are business like and stiff but are kind. If you stay at hotel, and can afford it, get a room LARGER than standard...especially if it is 2 or more people.

Don't buy trinkets at the Parthenon. Get them in Plaka.
