This was a beautiful hotel! The staff was great, food was great, and we loved our stay. The only problem was the roof-top pool was always full! We were not able to use it because there was never any chairs open. Otherwise it was great.

this is was not our first trip to Athens but its the first time we found a hotel that we will definitely recommend and stay at again! The staff makes you feel like family, perfect location without being touristy and dining at the rooftop restaurant offers a fantastic menu and one of the most amazing views of the Acropolis and unforgettable sunsets!

We normally like to stay at top-end 5 star hotels and wanted to try out something like this which has everything one needs but not the absolute top-end prices. We were very pleased with this choice. Exactly what we wanted: a smart hotel with all the facilities but not too ornate and stiff, so that we could relax but have all the facilities we needed for a city break. The pools were small but still nice to have, similarly the gym. Rooms sizes were on the small side (we stayed in a suite which was comfortable but not huge, but the bathroom was tiny). Breakfast was efficient and the food was OK, but nothing special. It allowed for a quick bite and early getaway for sightseeing. The roof top restaurant was nice with lovely views of the Acropolis (as had our bedrooms). The staff throughout were very helpful and pleasant. The location is top-notch. Close to the sights, and close to the city shops. All in all, a good place and very good value.

We loved this hotel. Excellent location, beautiful decor of the rooms and common areas, especially the rooftop pool with the amazing view of the acropolis.
Would definitely stay there again if on another visit to Athens.
Points for improvement: Wi-Fi should be free of charge, if not in the entire hotel then at least in the lobby. Also, soy milk at the breakfast buffet would have been great.

Got a good deal during busy August for 2 nights here. Small problem with one of our two rooms for a family of 3 was actually 3 separate beds, but they did their best to make sure we were still together and the beds were actually already right next to each other. Rooms are typical size for a big city in Europe (small, but not ridiculously small) and very nicely done. Lots of noise from the outside, but to be expected given the great location. Breakfast buffet was fantastic and the service and support were top notch.

This hotel group was recommended and I was concerned I had booked the wrong one but not so. We arrived after some 30 hours of travel quite early in the morning. We were told we would have to wait for a room but within minutes we were advised we had an upgrade which was immediately available. Thank you Victoria. The staff were at all times most helpful and appeared genuinely glad to be of service. The room was spotless, bed really comfortable and breakfast great. The location suited us well with the Acropolis and Syntagma Square really close. The night time view of the Acropolis from the garden restaurant was breathtaking and the food good. I would recommend this Hotel and certainly use it again.

Wander through the ancient Agora and visit the Parthenon – then wonder at its glory, all dramatically lit at night, from the balcony of your room. 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.
