I stayed at the Electra Palace with my mother and husband for three nights and had a great time. The hotel's location is not just perfect but unbeatable right smack in the charming Plaka. You can go everywhere on foot and there are several cafes, restaurants and shops nearby. The hotel is very clean, the garden is charming and the lobby and public areas are plenty, comfy, and extremely welcoming. The room was spacious and the beds comfortable; the room and bathroom were very clean. We were greeted by a box of complimentary chocolates given to us at check in by a very friendly and affable Nikos, one of the most efficient staff members. I want to also mention the doorman Makis, who was very kind to my elderly mother, very polite and extremely helpful and professional. The check in and check out were fast and efficient. Breakfast was good and plentiful; their croissants are to die for. I would just recommend that they include the free wifi in the rooms and not just the public areas, and also complimentary tea and coffee in the room. There was on our arrival, but never replenished. Unfortunately, we did not get to try their famous restaurant as it was booked solid throughout our stay. Hopefully, next time. All in all, a great experience that left us with a very positive impression of our first visit to Athens. If we ever go back to Athens, this is definitely where we will stay. We will also recommend it to friends and family.
