“5 Star Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2012

This Central Athens Hotel, may not be a 5 Star hotel, but you do get 5 Star quality from the staff, who always have a smile, a kind word, wonderful advice & always welcoming!
I would recommend this hotel full heartedly & when in Athens again, this will be the place I will be booking
A special thanks to Joseph on reception who went out of his way to help us when we first arrived in Athens (after we got pick-pocketed, but that's another story!) & to Fofi, for the extra lovely room!!
Efkharisto!!!

The hotel is located near the plaka area full of shops and restaurants across from the main square of the city and a few minutes walking to the temple of zeus rooms are ok (european ok) but the location is awesome!

We visited Athens in May, 2012, and stayed at the Electra Hotel for 7 days. The location is excellent, the rooms are clean and comfortable and the staff courteous and professional. The soaps, shampoo, and lotions they provide for the guests are very good quality.

They offer an excellent breakfast which is included in the price of the room, and there is a very nice coffee shop next to the Lobby. There is a "hospitality table" in the Lobby offering cold water and "Loukoumia" to the guests.

The location provides easy access to the Plaka District, Syntagma Square, Museums, Shops and restaurants. You can actually see from the hotel balconies the "Changing of the Guard" at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, at the Parliament Building.

There is free Wi-Fi in the Lobby area.

We plan to stay there again on our next visit to Athens and have recommended this Hotel to our friends who will be visiting Athens this Fall.

Many thanks to the hotel staff for their assistance and hospitality.

A smart & clean hotel, with friendly & helpful staff, and a good selection of food for the breakfast. It was our first visit to Athens & we were very pleased with how close the hotel is to the metro station at Syntagma Square, center of the city & in that heat this is important when you are dragging big suitcases. From here one can walk to the Acropolis, shops, tavernas & streetmarkets.We arrived early at the hotel, but the check-in staff offered to take care of our luggage while we went for a cup of coffee & sandwich (delicious!) in the very nice coffee shop adjacent to the lobby (our room was ready 30 minutes later). My only small negative comment is that there was no coffee-making facilities in the room. We will use this hotel again.

Room Tip: We had a family room, & as it was for just 1 night our 20yr-old shared with us... cost effective...
