“Great family hotel!”
Reviewed 14 September 2013

If you want a very safe spot in Athens where you can get to the Plaka quickly and enjoy shopping, restaurants, cafes, etc....this is a great spot. The staff was great and most accommodating. They have a great cafe downstairs and the cafe staff are equally great. And don't worry if you don't know Greek as the staff speaks English. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Ermou have a view of Syntagma as well.

Really enjoyed my stay here. Incredibly convenient (right near Parliament) and close to so many great little restaurants. It's a great combination of in the heart of things while maintaining a sense of being out of the city. Great breakfast and excellent service. Good value considering you're in the heart of Athens. Many great things are within walking distance. I highly recommend it.

It is on Ermou Street close to all major shops, near Plaka, Monastiroki & Psiri close to metro & taxi station it is the ideal hotel to explore Athens. Very clean, good rates (not as expensive as other hotels in the neighborhood). Rooms are nice ( a bit small though). Breakfast is ok ! Stayed there 2-3 times and as it has the ideal location it is more than likely to stay there again! I do recommend it!

Stayed here with my family in August. We had interconnecting rooms which were very clean, very comfortable and very well equipped.
Buffet breakfast was very good.
Stepping from the oppressive heat of Athens in August into the air conditioned lobby of the Electra was possibly the highlight of my trip.
This hotel is perfectly located on a busy shopping street just off Syntagma Square. It's a great central location for shopping or visiting the Acropolis (if you can stand the heat).
I would definitely choose it for a short stay in Athens again.

The hotel is perfect little paridise to get the Athens dust off of you. Good location to vist all the downtown ruins. Close to cafes and tourist shops. Also within walking distance to experince any riots around the parliment building even though I didn't experince any of that. Staff was excellent, front desk clerks and bellman made sure your stay was very good experince and set everything up for you when you needed any service. The staff at the roof top resturant was outstanding and professional,setting us up with the best table and view all three nights. Excellent view of the Acropolis and food to match. The pool area was a little small but you are in downtown Athens nice to just have one and if you want your own get the presidental suite that has one you don't share. it wasn't avaiable but we did have a suite on the fourth floor with a view of the Acropolis it was beautiful suite and had all the benefits of being a suite. AC worked fine and our room was a cool 70 degrees but we keep curtains closed in the AM. We spent most time touring around at that time anyway. Of course this isn't your Greek Isle retreat but very nice hotel to stay at when in old Athens. You must get out of Athens for a true Greek experince. The shower always get a rating this one was a 6 out of ten. Good pressure but kinda of small for such a large room. Might have been because of the nice tub and everything else they squeze in the bathroom. Very nice stay I highly recommend reserve a room with a view.

Second time staying at this hotel, and second time the air conditioning has been the issue. The location is great, very convenient and clean. However the problem persists with the air conditioning. It's not great. Staff are always helpful.
