We spent three nights at the Electra. It is in a great location to most sights in Athens. The rooms are small but comfortable. We were on the 8th floor so traffic and street noise was not a problem. There is a great breakfast every morning on the 1st floor. We had several minor complaints that would not be enough to prevent us from returning. We spent 10 days touring and the only sour person we encountered was the evening shift desk clerk. She was not nasty but not the least bit helpful. The remainder of the staff was excellent. Wi-Fi in the lobby is a joke in the evening. About the only time we were able to log on was in the morning during breakfast. There is a different Wi-Fi available in the rooms for an additional charge. Finally, the shower is not completely enclosed and is difficult to keep all the water in the tub and not on the floor. Because the hotel has such a great location, I would not hesitate returning there.
