5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Nothing special. Bland hotel, could have been anywhere: Rome, NY, any big city. No character, but great location, good breakfast and perfect for a one or two night stop-over in Athens.

There are plenty of Hotel in Athens please do not stay in this Hotel. I put my cash in the safe in the Hotel room and it was taken by the staff. I notified the Manager on duty and he said that his staff are honest people. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Pool on roof closes at 7 PM. Nice view from roof. Pretty hotel, comfortable bed

The hotel room was excellent and very clean. We had a great view of the Acropolis from our room. The breakfast was very good and the hotel served a nice variety of food. The Spa at the hotel was worth visiting. The only down side was that the people behind the front desk were not very helpful when we asked questions about tours, etc.... They acted like we were bothering them. Other than that, the hotel was perfect for our one week stay. I would recommend this hotel to others and would definitely stay here again.

It was a pleasurable experience although the shower was a little wasted with the tape are situation.

This hitel is part of Electra properties. It features excellent service within an elegant, old Europe building with classic design and furnishings. The rooms are well-sized and well-appointed. The amenities at the hotel include a good spa and fitness facility, a restaurant with a great view of the Acropolis, inside and outside pools, and an outstanding (included) breakfast. It's only a few blocks from all the Plaka shopping and an easy walk to the archaeological attractions. Close enough to Syntagma Square for bus and rail travelers to walk there. The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and first rate. I highly recommend this property.

We had a noisy room because it faced the street and we were by the elevator. Otherwise location is great, pool very nice. Staff were ok - not as service oriented as I would expect from an SPG 5 hotel

Very nice and comfortable Hotel .Excellent View of Acropolis from the Roof top restaurant and swimming Pool. A huge lounge area .Sumptuous breakfast.Very nice staff

Hotel is in heart of plaka....can walk everywhere. Nice clean big rooms, comfy beds. Cannot beat rooftop pool and nighttime view of Acropolis!

We were very happy with the hotel and the staff great view from the roof of the Parthenon. Great breakfast and helpful staff Only complaint was the bed- two singles pushed together rather than full size bed.

The location was great. We visit Greece every year and always stay a few days in Athens. The pool had great view and plenty of seating was available. It was a short walk to shopping and to the sites. The staff was great. I can't see myself staying any place else.

we loved this hotel. here are very attentive and friendly staff. restaurant located on the roof of the hotel impresses with its view of the Acropolis.

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.

The restaurant was fabulous, the pool was gorgeous, the service spectacular. Well worth it's price for location alone, the other desirables are all there too.

The hotel is well located in the plaka touristic area. The breakfast was very rich and the amneties are also good. The pool in the hotel is cold. but overall it is a good place to stay at

Clean, comfortable, good breakfast, great location. Rooftop has awesome 360 degree view of the city.

Very close to and central to main antiquities; Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Old Agora, Cycladic Museum, etc. Didn't spend much time at the hotel.

Wonderful breakfast! Helpful staff! Located in Plaka, views of Acropolis, shopping, restaurants, etc.

The Electra Palace hotel is located in the heart of the shopping and tavernas erea called Plaka. It's very well designed from the inside, the service is in a 5 stars level and you're not getting robbed with the prices there. To sum up, we highly recommand this hotel- one of the best we've ever been to.

Everything was great - the lobby was gorgeous and the room was nice. The hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The location was also wonderful - very close to both the Acropolis and very central to everything else. Definitely would recommend!
