Travellers' Choice
Stately, with the air of an era long gone, the Electra Palace Athens, hospitable and aristocratic, awaits to welcome you in the heart of the city. Classical in its architecture and design, blending beautifully with the noble historical buildings of the Plaka area, the hotel’s elegant luxury is complemented by the majestic views of the Acropolis that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, pool, rooms and suites. Marble bathrooms; soft duvets; handmade carpets; custom furniture; these are but a few of the details that make the Electra Palace Athens luxuriously enjoyable. The amenities of our hotel will leave you wanting for nothing more: for your comfort and enjoyment, here you will find satellite T.V.s, laptop size electronic safes, Wi-Fi internet connection, and fully equipped bathrooms with hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, magnifying mirror and more. Right in the city center and within walking distance from all major sights, easily accessible by car or public transport, the Electra Palace Athens is the ideal hotel for your stay in Athens whether you are here for business or leisure: spend a summer day at our outdoor swimming pool, soaking up the sun of Athens as it rises above the Acropolis – or spend it shopping in the city’s lively markets. Wander through the ancient Agora and visit the Parthenon – then wonder at its glory, all dramatically lit at night, from the balcony of your room. 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. Enjoy our delicious contemporary greek cuisine at the award winning “Electra Palace Roof Garden” or at the “Motivo” in the lounge, or with a drink at the “Duck Tail”, our British inspired bar. For bigger celebrations or for business events in the heart of Athens, our hotel’s five-star service extends to our seven meeting rooms and ballrooms: fully equipped, air-conditioned and naturally lit, our halls can cater for up to 350 people for any event type, no matter how formal: host your business meeting here, or organize a successful conference. Or, have the reception or banquet of your dreams, tasteful and impeccable, a festive testament to your own sophisticated style.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An excellent hotel for a perfect vacation. The hotel's location is central yet quiet. It has a spa with an indoor pool and an outdoor pool with a view of the Acropolis. The breakfast is high-quality, tasty, and very diverse, with seating overlooking the Acropolis. Simply a dream. The staff is courteous, friendly, and always attentive, making your stay enjoyable in every way. The room is spacious, clean, and the bathroom is equipped with everything you need. One of the best hotels I've stayed at in recent years. I'll definitely be back!

Hotel's Favourite
It is very rare I feel obliged to review a hotel stay. But this hotel deserves every bit of praise and more!! Again, booking something at the last minute required only convenience so the @electrapalaceathens met all the requirements. What I didn't realize is the rooftop view was more incredible than the pictures I saw online (pics never do anything justice). Yes, I was obsessed with the view!! But the service, the attention, the absolute professional and friendly atmosphere of the entire staff was something I have only experienced in a 5-star hotel in NYC. This hotel has nothing to envy from any hotel in the world when it comes to service. The food was superb, top chef quality. The drinks were amongst the best I have had in Europe. The room was spacious with an additional sitting area (I regret not upgrading to a suite with the Acropolis view, but then again we were only here for a short time). Definitely, if I ever have an opportunity to visit Athens again, this will likely be the only place I would consider for 1,000 reasons and more. PS. Now that Greece is off season, the rate was extremely reasonable, but not sure what it would be during peak season. Either way, totally worth every penny!!

This hotel is very well located, with easy access to all of Athens’ attractions. The reception area makes an excellent first impression. The staff are very professional and helpful. There is a rooftop room / terrace where the extensive breakfast is served. This room serves as one of the evening restaurants and it has a lovely view of the Acropolis, illuminated at night. There is a smaller restaurant serving lighter and delicious meals. The bedrooms are well appointed and maintained. All in all, a highly recommended hotel.

The staff was absolutely fantastic. I made a booking error (me, not the hotel) that we discovered when checking in. The staff at the front desk went above and beyond to ensure the best possible stay. They worked to find suitable rooms and we had a great stay. The hotel location is perfect - in the heart of Plaka, easy walk to Syntagma Square, Acropolis, Hadrian's Gate, Temple of Olympian Zeus, Panathenaic stadium, just about all the key spots. The views from the hotel (particularly the side with balconies facing the Acropolis) and the hotel rooftop restaurant (where breakfast is served) are beautiful and unobstructed. I highly recommend this hotel and if I visit Athens again will only stay here!

One of the best downtown hotels in Athens, staff extremely friendly. Good value/quality performance. My favorite for business travel in Athens. Plaka is a nice and secure area. Scenic views on the Acropolis and surroundings, good breakfast and food.

Fabulous stay here celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The views from the restaurant are amazing. We ate breakfast outside on the terrace overlooking the Acropolis every day. The staff were super friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Elektra. The location is excellent. 10 mins walk from the Acropolis, 1 min from Plaka main street, couple of mins from main square and Parliament building. Everywhere is walkable. The room was ok. It was a double room but we had 2 single beds which wasn't ideal, although they were comfortable and we slept well. The rooftop restaurant has amazing views of the Acropolis and the whole of the city. The quality of the breakfast was good. The staff are friendly and helpful. The spa was a little disappointing. The pool and Jacuzzi was too cold and it was a little dark. Also you have to book to use the sauna which I think is not necessary. The steps into and out of the pool are not great either. There are some minor renovations going on in the reception area but it didn't affect us. Overall its a very good hotel and I would recommend it and would stay there agin.

This hotel is fabulous.its perfect for a mini break. Friendly staff, excellent location with most sites all walkable. Athens is very busy and scruffy in some areas. This hotel pretty much escapes this. Highly recommend. Breakfast was fantastic too

What a fabulous hotel, central location for most sights. The staff were delightful and service was first class. The bedroom had a balcony with incredible views of The Acropolis. Lovely light bathroom with fluffy towels and robes. The breakfast was one of the best, so much choice and plentiful fresh orange juice.

Rehber wrote a review Mar 2024
Tel Aviv, Israel128 contributions66 helpful votes
This is a very nice hotel in the best location, close to everywhere you would want to go in Athens in a few days. I booked a superior room with a garden view which was an upgrade to my initial booking by adding 15 euros/night. I have to say that the "garden view" was disappointing since there was no garden in the view, there were only a few plants on the window side, and the rest of the view was buildings. We were also supposed to get a king-size double bed, but we got two single beds that were combined. The bed was not comfortable enough for a hotel at this level, the mattress was far from being orthopedic, and I sank into the mattress when lying. Except for the bed, mattress, and a disappointing garden view, all the rest was really nice. The breakfast on the roof, with the Acropolis view, was a beautiful start to the day. The SPA area, with a warm indoor pool and massage therapists, was also a nice way to finish the day. The therapist at the spa and the rest of staff were all very professional and did their best to offer us treatment at a cost we could afford. The hotel staff were all helpful for any request and provided service with a smile on their face. I think it is a great option for a 5-star hotel in Athens, with a superb location and high value for money. I would recommend the hotel management upgrade the mattresses and beds to make the hotel even better.
