"A gem tucked away in the midst of it all"
The Electra Palace was a lovely surprise. Luxurious and situated on a quiet lovely street within walking distance from everything in the center of Athens. And walking distance meaning a 5 to 10 minute short walk to Placca and Monesteraki and 2 minutes to Syntagma. The rooms are lluxurious and clean and the amenities are lovely. Breakfast was delightful and the staff were really helpful and friendly.

"Athens vacations stay at the Electra Hotel Athens"
It was great! After a long red eye flight and having our baggage not delivered by the airline, the guys at the reception received us on very uplifting and good sense of humor mood. That treatment kept the rest of our stay. Room service was really great too and very attentive of our needs. Their restaurant is really good and has one of the best views of the Acropolis. I'll recommend this hotel without a doubt and probably stay again here.

"Super Location"
The Plaka and Acropolis are just down the street from the hotel making this hotel an easy walk to all of the important sites in central Athens. It's also close to Syntagma Square, the central square of Athens, and a key stop for the Athens Subway system. They served an excellent breakfast which was included in our offer. The rooms were spacious and very clean. Definitely visit the rooftop restaurant and the pool for outstanding views of the Acropolis. We had a room on the street side. The staff said noise was not a problem after 5pm. As a result of this advice I decided not to move to the other side of the building (which they offered). However, there was a fair amount of street noise, so if your sensitive to this be sure to request the opposite side of the building.

"An Oasis in Congested Plaka area"
Electra Palace is an excellent, comfortable hotel in the congested Plaka area. The area is superb for short walks to all the major sites including Acropolis, Agora, Acropolis Museum etc. In the Plaka there are more taxis than tourists traveling up and down tiny streets originally built for horses, carts and pedestrians, so be prepared to constantly step aside making room for them during your leisurely strolls. Family stayed in Junior Suite, with balcony and unobstructed views to Acropolis. Majestic view, especially at night. Rooms are clean and tastefully decorated. Biggest complaint is the European double bed concept, which is essentially two single beds pushed together that easily separate, sending you, the guest, falling through the crack. Breakfast is good, but after 3-4 days of the exact same buffet style food each morning it becomes quite old. Hotel would be wise to add a omelette stand where fresh breakfast can be made to order. 5th floor restaurant is good, but expensive, nothing to write home about... 5th floor also has a nice outdoor pool are with great views. There is also a "slightly heated" pool in the basement with excellent steam sauna and message services are also available. Overall, Electra Palace is a fine hotel and highly recommended, especially if you can get a good rate.

"Great hotel close to everything"
The hotel is wonderful. Great staff always helpful. Delicious breakfast buffet. Rooms are very nice and super clean. Housekeeping does a super job. Beds are SUPER comfy! The location is wonderful. Close to shopping dining and Acropolis all within a short walk. Safe location. I only have two complaints. First one. We went end of May. The rooms have air conditioning but were controlled by the hotel. Our room was always too warm and we had to sleep with our sliding balcony door open to get the room to our comfort level. I know Europeans dont like air conditioning but for most of us Americans who like some air movement in the room I was disappointed and had some trouble sleeping as a result. I noticed that every other guest on our floor did the same thing. Maybe they run it when it gets really hot outside. Not sure but it was advertised as having air conditioning so I was not happy to find out that the controller in my room was set by the hotel and I was unable to use it. So if this is important to you-make sure to ask the hotel before you book! The second is that the coffee -(nescafe) refills in your room at your mini bar have to be requested by you. They do not seem to automatically refill them. Sugar, cream and coffee and teas. There is a water heating coffee pot so that part is super! Everything else was spectacular and I would definitely stay again but would buy a cheap fan for my room.

"Nice hotel close to everything"
We were two couples, got the rooms on the 6th floor, which was good. The rooms were nice and quiet if you do not open the window. The AC did not operate in the entire hotel during winter. The room was very warm at night, so we had to leave the window open, the noise from surrounding buildings was a little disturbing. The room is not large but it is comfortable and clean. The breakfast was very good and everyone got what he liked. The staff was very helpful to explain how to get around. They made the reservation for us for a couple of nightclubs which was nice. The hotel is close to many sites and museums so you could walk to all of them. I would not rate this hotel a 5 star hotel because of room condition, size, beds, lack of AC.

Nice little place in the middle of downtown attractions. Most of the attractions are within 15-20 min of walking distance. Overall a good place to stay but Heating/Air conditioning sucks. I stayed there in January and literally couldn't sleep (not due to jet leg). I had no way to cool down the room...heater was blasting the entire time and there's no way to cool off. Specially it get worse with a little humidity..you sleep on your own sweat :-( I tried to open the window the next night but didn't help other than loud street noise....

We stayed for a weekend in January. The hotels' location is great. Breakfast was perfect. The room was fronting the tiny street on which each car or motorcycle makes a terrible noise. The air conditioning system didnt work and we had to leave the window open which only increased the noise. The mattresses were very soft for those who care.

The hotel is very well located in the Plaka area and near the Acropolis and the main square of athenes - Syntagma. It is also in the vicinity of the Hellenic Children's Museum. The staff was extremely friendly and helpfull and room service was good and not pricey. We had an upgrade to a nice full suite with a jacuzzi for a very reasonable price - which was worth every penny. The breakfeast was very rich and the service was quick and very polite.

"Fantastic Hotel"
My wife and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in late November 2014. I cannot say enough about the hotel location, the staff and the overall value. As soon as we walked in (about 9 pm), we were greeted by our names. I asked if they had any upgrades available and he told us that since we were Expedia Gold members, we were already upgraded to a suite. The suite was just great, had a bedroom side and an entire sitting area as big as the bedroom overlooking the garden. Bathroom was very clean with wonderful water pressure in the shower. As far as location, it was walking distance to lots of shops, bars and local restaurants (don't forget the Greek salads). One night we even walked all the way to Psiri where there are a lot of taverns with great food and local music. Just a great trip at a great hotel.

"Athens - Plaka"
First of all the staff is great, not one complaint in our week stay at this hotel. Prior to going, I had contacted the concierge numerous times to pre-coordinate excursions, dinner reservations, an massages at the spa (due to Athens marathon week and most things would be a challenge to do without). They were able to book everything that I wanted to do in advance. Thanks Team!!! Hotel is very convenient to just about all the major sites in Athens. A short 5 minute walk to the metro, bus, or street cars which is in one of the main squares of the city. We had an AWESOME view from the 6th floor of the Acropolis. Definitely the best view from any hotel that we have ever stayed in. The American style breakfast was great each morning; they even accommodated all the marathon runners the morning of the race and opened breakfast at 0500; in order for us to each before we left. Nice indoor pool and sauna downstairs. Internet was decent and meets our needs. Great stay!!

"Best hotel in the Plaka"
We emailed the concierge on the day we were flying to Athens to request an balcony on a high floor and got the best room! It was 511 which is on the same floor as the restaurant, but not too close to it or the elevator. The balcony faced the acropolis and the view was spectacular. The restaurant has excellent food and you can't beat the romantic view, but you will need reservations. The location was so convenient to everything we wanted to see. And after walking around we came back to a beautiful retreat every day. The hotel staff was always so helpful and polite. The breakfast is very good with a large variety and we heard that most hotels in Athens barely have Danish and coffee. Overall, this is the best hotel in the Plaka.
