Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I broke my foot the night before our wedding so we canceled our honeymoon trip to santorini and other islands. We decided to splurge on a nice hotel in Athens on our way home. We choose this for it's location and view. Upon arriving the staff were very attentive, they assisted to all our needs, they even tried fixing my broken crutch!
The pool terrace is great, only compliant is the bartender needs to make some rounds every once and a while.
The breakfast buffet was packed with all sorts of choices.
We were very happy and the bed was super comfortable.

Stayed: August 2014, travelled as a couple

I stayed at Electra palace for 4 days with my family (my parents, sister and I) and I really enjoyed it! The pool on the roof was awesome, especially with the view to the Acropolis, and the food was excellent too. The rooms were great, being both well organised and comfy. The only down side is that you have to pay for the internet, but apart from that, it's an incredible hotel!

overall it was okay. we wanted to have our room with the acropolis view and we stated in our requirements during our booking time. however we did not get it and their staff did not help to exchange the room. the view of our room was houses at that area. the breakfast was okay and did not have many options. we have to pay for the internet!

We stayed 3 nights and loved it ! Location fantastic and away from the hustle and bustle yet easy walk to all the sites. Staff knowledgable and pleasant. Don't miss the wine story ( wine shop) 1 block away and the many walkable restaurants and do enjoy the rooftop restaurant ! Delightful

I've just had my third stay at the Electra Palace Plaka in Athens.

Location is outstanding for everything Athens has to offer. Staff are efficient and keen to help. Nothing is too much trouble.

Breakfasts are good and the pool deck, while a bit small, is a real bonus with views of the Acropolis.

Well worth considering for your next stay in Athens.

Good location but for 120 euro per night I expected better room! Small room small bed, I felt like teenager that came back to his old room. Location of the hotel is excellent but for 120 euros you can find much better hotel.

Dear Guest
Thank you for your review. Perhaps you are confusing Electra Palace with another property as your review is 10 months delayed and the features mentioned, do not match ours.
Anyway we hope that at your next stay in Athens, you will stay with us.

Stroll around the city under the autumn rain, then warm up in the hotel’s sauna. Relax after a day’s hard work - or blow off some steam - at the indoor pool or our gym. Enjoy our delicious contemporary greek cuisine at the award winning “Electra Palace Roof Garden” or at the “Motivo” in the lounge, or with a drink at the “Duck Tail”, our British inspired bar.
