What a welcoming hotel! The rooms are very clean, the beds comfortable with excellent linens and excellent soaps/shampoos. We stayed here a few days before embarking on a cruise. Located in the Plaka, it was perfectly positioned for sightseeing and shopping. The rooftop restaurant offers a stunning view of the Acropolis and the food is excellent. Make your dinner reservation so you can watch the Acropolis lights twinkle on at sunset. Breakfast is included with the room and it is outstanding with local favorites (yogurts, cheeses, olives), pastries, sausages, eggs and more. You can dine inside, but breakfast on the patio is highly recommended. There are neighborhood cats that come to ask for a handout so if that bothers you perhaps staying inside would be best. But they are delightful little beasts. The staff is friendly...both front desk and housekeeping. The concierge is most helpful with tours and other suggestions. They do have a limited number of converters for those who may have forgotten to pack theirs. A great hotel. When back in Athens we will stay at the Electra Palace.
