This hotel is in a great location with an amazing view of the Acropolis. Definitely recommend booking in for dinner at their rooftop restaurant if you can to watch the sunset over it. Can't fault the location, service or room. Everything was fabulous.

We stayed at Electra palace for 3 night June 1st and this hotel really exceeded what I thought. The room was very nice and it was located in the best spot. Walking distance to everything. The staff was great and breakfast buffet was soooo good. I really have nothing but GREAT things to say about this hotel. I really recommend it to anyone who wants to be in Athens in the middle of shopping, historical sights and great food.

This very comfortable hotel has the absolute best location in old town Athens, the Plaka. You can walk to the Acropolis, shopping and many excellent restaurants. The breakfast is served in a pretty courtyard and was a delicious buffet. The view from the rooftop is unbelievable, especially at night.

We stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel for two nights on May 13 and 14, 2014 as a pre-trip for our cruise. The hotel was very nice, there was free wifi in the lobby that worked fine, the rooms were very nice, the buffet breakfast was great, and the location could not have been better to walk to all of the main tourist attractions. We took the Metro from the airport to the stop by the Parliament building for 20 Euros for 3 adults. We walked about 3 blocks slightly downhill to our hotel with no problem with luggage on wheels. We walked to the acropolis to view the Parthenon and it was an easy walk. We were only about two blocks to Ermou street which had all of the shops and ourdoor restaurants/cafes. I downloaded Rick Steves walking tours of both the Athens City Walk and the Tour of the Acropolis on my ipad and it worked great. No need for a tour guide. All the major sites were covered. Watch it before you go too. We really enjoyed Athens and were surprised how hugh the city is. Bought really nice leather handbags made in Greece.

We stayed here for 2 nights and loved it. We spent our days visiting the sights and museums and retreated to the oasis our hotel provided at the end of the day. Sitting beside the pool on the roof admiring the Acropolis while sipping a drink revived our spirits. We ate dinner one night at the restaurant on the roof which was a magical experience. The food and the service were excellent. The hotel breakfast provides a great variety of high quality, fresh food. The bread was amazing. If the weather is good I would recommend eating outside in the garden. It has a lovely ambience, much nicer than inside. The hotel staff were helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

This is a friendly and comfortable hotel within spitting distance of Syntagma Square. With tour buses and the Metro right on hand, it is also within walking distance of many of the features of central Athens as well as the shopping precincts.

We stayed at the Electra for four nights after a long flight from Australia. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room overlooked a side street which was fine for us as we spent most of our waking hours visiting the sights of Athens. The buffet breakfast had a great variety and it was nice to sit in the garden. The rooftop restaurant and pool is well worth a visit, I nice place to relax and have a drink after pounding the marble pavements. We had a meal one night overlooking the Acropolis in their restaurant, a little pricey but well worth it for the view and the fresh ingredients. The best reason to stay at the Electra is the location, step outside the door and you are so close to all the attractions that Athens has to offer. We never felt uncomfortable travelling around Athens, everyone was so friendly and obliging and we never felt hassled.

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking a side alley but it was very quiet and adequate for our needs.
