“Great luxury hotel in an excellent location”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This is a luxury hotel in an excellent location from where one can walk to most of the tourist attractions. Service is very good, rooms are decent size and well decorated. The pools and gym are on the smaller side and sauna was broken during our stay. Breakfast spread is very good.

The Electra Palace Hotel in Athens exceeded our expectations. It is very well situated in the Plaka district close to the Acropolis and Syntagma Square. The lobby is large and a welcome cool place for a respite to read or have a drink in the lounge area. They have a lovely courtyard just off the main lobby which is especially nice for breakfast. Breakfasts are very good and served buffet style with extensive hot and cold choices from hot pastries to fresh fruit. The staff ensure that you are served coffee/tea/espresso based drinks promptly and just how you would prefer. The rooms are a good size and we give extra kudos for the "energy wise" automatic power turn off system that activates after you leave your room. The rooftop pool is excellent with stellar views of the Acropolis. Overlooking the pool area is a wonderful indoor/outdoor restaurant; the for and wine are excellent and the sunset view of the Acropolis is postcard perfect. The indoor gym is small but very nice to have by the indoor pool.

Room Tip: Rooms with an Acropolis view would be the first choice.

I was just at the Electra Palace Hotel in Athens for the second time. After my first experience I didn't think it could be any better, but it was! This is a beautiful hotel in a perfect location. The staff, especially George at the desk, did everything they could to make sure our stay was perfect, When we checked in, one of the rooms we had requested was not available. No worries, George gave us the Presidential Suite! An absolutely beautiful suite with breathtaking views of the Acropolis and it's own pool. A truly memorable stay. I cannot image a better hotel in Athens for anyone who wants wonderful service and perfect location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony and view of the Acropolis.

We spent last week in Greece with a family of 6 (3 adults, 3 children ages 5, 9 and 11). We stayed at this hotel for six nights and had two adjoining rooms (which we did not request so this was a nice surprise). The hotel rooms are large and clean, the breakfast is great, and the staff is very welcoming and friendly. The pool is excellent. The hotel is close to all the sights. We highly recommend it!

First of all the hotel is beautiful! We arrived very early, so I thought we would check in and leave the luggage in charged and go out and come back at check in time, but no, the hotel people told us to have breakfast (complete and delicious) and that our rooms would be ready as soon as we were finished. The rooms are very cozy and comfortable and the location just couldn't be better!!! At night you have the most beautiful view of the acropolis and OMG the hotel people are so nice and helpful. What more can you ask for? Don't doubt, this hotel is great. Excellent!!!!!

We booked an Acropolis view room. We were given in a room on the 5th floor (same floor as restaurant) that has a sideways view of Acropolis. The room was quaint, elegant, and had a patio. The provided a bottle of wine and fruit on our first night and Leonides chocolates during turndown. The hotel pool, although a little small, was fun and had an amazing view of the Acropolis. The pool closes at 7 pm. Highly recommend making a reservation and eating at the outdoor rooftop restaurant. The view cannot be beat, the service impeccable, and the food Greek with a modern flaire. Front desk was helpful and polite. Perfect location to easily walk to all the sites in Athens. Tram stop five minutes away for further locations like beach areas. Only downside is you have to keep signing on to the internet to use it. Breakfast was perfect. One could eat in the courtyard. Selection was large of both hot and cold foods.

We stayed there in the first week of May'14. Warm and extremely helpful staff. Excellent rooms . Centrally located - close to all tourist must see spots of Athens. We stayed there in two phases and though we had paid in advance for the regular room, in the second phase their gesture to offer an upgrade to suite is highly appreciable.Breakfast buffet has a large spread and tasty. Do not miss having dinner at their roof top restaurant in the shadow of Acropolis.
