Our stay at the Electra in Athens was great! Special thanks to the staff cause we arrived at 7 o clock and I never expected to have the rooms raedy, we thought we wouls have to leave the luggage and ask the hotel to put the suitcases in the room while we were gone, but no, they gave us the rooms! The staff was so friendly and The hotel is beautiful […] and very well located at a walking distance to the acropolis. The hotel has a stunning view of the acropolis especially at night. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you Electra Hotel Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"great hotel, service and location"
I recently spent two nights at Electra Palace and don't have a bad thing to say. We arrived on a Greek religious holiday and the staff went out of there way to help us figure out what to do when nothing was open. We had to eat lunch at the hotel's restaurant, something I never do because I prefer to go out to a local restaurant, but the food was excellent. […] The next day, they helped us plan our day and suggested a great local place for dinner where we dined on authentic Greek food. The neighborhood is fantastic and the views of the Acropolis are fantastic. I'd definitely stay here again should I find myself in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfection once again"
My family and I have stayed at the Electra Palace (Plaka) several times over the last 13 years. Twice we stayed at other 5 star hotels in Athens just because we thought we should try them out. We prefer the Electra Palace and will not stray again. It is an elegant boutique hotel with well-pointed, pristine rooms. The best things about it are the excellent […] service, beautiful hotel, lovely garden in which you can eat your fantastic buffet breakfast, roof-top bar that faces the Acropolis and the balconies off of the dingle/double room which also look out onto the Acropolis. It is about 2 blocks from Plaka, the oldest market in Athens. The Electra Palace is a perfect place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel, good spa, great view"
Just don't believe everything the front desk staff tells you. They are not updated on the entrance fee for the Akropolis (but it was cheaper, so ok) and the frequency of the metro to the airport (it almost got critical). Apart from that they were really helpful, the hotel is beautiful incl the top floor restaurant, which has a perfect view of the Akropolis, […] and the staff at the spa gives really good massages. Don't buy the guided tour from the hotel to the Akropolis, unless you really don't like exploring on your own. You can walk there in 20 min through the nice streets with tavernas, and the entrance fee is 12€ (November), free if you have a student's card. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"First Time Trip to Greece"
We were upgraded to a larger room when we arrived. The room was comfortable, the beds amazing and it was quiet! We had the breakfast included which was the best hotel breakfast buffet we had experienced. It was easily worth $20 per person a a day. The staff was from the movies with everyone willing to help with the slightest need. They took out maps, […] drew a walking route and then gave you the map. You are walking distance to almost every major site and a cab ride to everywhere else which they will call for you and it will pick you up and drop you off at the hotel door. We would stay there again without hesitation. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This was a nice hotel in a great location. Staff was helpful. Breakfast was more than adequate. We stayed for a night before a med. cruise and were very satisfied. Lots of shopping nearby. Had dinner at the rooftop restaurant-was wonderful food with an incredible view!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is nice,very good location, close to the main streets of Plaka with shops and restaurants.Nice view from the swimming pool and terrace.The room was very small and without any view. The wi-fi was not good too. The breakfast is very rich and nice.I would recommend it mainly because of the location and good service.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel located in wonderful walkable part of Athens. The rooftop pool. bar, and restaurant are outstanding with fabulous nighttime view.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent boutique hotel with old-word charm."
Great quiet, clean location but close to major square with city sightseeing buses and near a quaint walking only street with many cafes & shops. Expansive marble lobby, lovely private courtyard for outdoor breakfasts, spectacular view of Acropolis from rooftop dining room & pool, modern bathrooms. Very attentive, helpful personnel. Excellent in every […] way. Wish we could have stayed longer & will definitely choose this hotel next time in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great visit to Athens."
My husband and I had a great time in Athens. The hotel staff was very helpful in getting us oriented with maps, directions and suggestions. The breakfast was excellent. The roof top restaurant was reasonably priced for the quality of food, ambience and view. The roof top pool was a relaxing place. We will recommend this hotel to friends.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Walking distance to Acropolis so. entrance & shop"
The receptionists were very cordial and helpful of our needs but hard to get smiles from them. One of the twin matresses was firm but the other was soft and suggy. The back door of our room was left partially opened although I closed it the night before. There was no face towel or sponge in the shower (i wonder if it is the norm in this place?). My […] wife and I enjoyed the wonderful breakfast, very fullfiling. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Location, Location, Location"
To have a good, big city experience is to be as close to all of the things you want to do-within walking distance-blocks, not miles. The location of this hotel is just that. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfast is much more than expected. Size of the room is a bit small, but everything is of highest quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"perfect location/wonderful staff"
Electra Palace Athens was highly recommended to us by our neighbors who had stayed at the hotel when they had visited Athens. We could not have been more pleased: outstanding staff and wonderful location. It was just glorious to sit on our balcony and have a view of the Acropolis! They have a rooftop restaurant also with a spectacular view of the Acropolis, […] especially when it is lit up at night. There were little things that also stood out: bowl of fresh apples at the front desk every day, fresh coffee & pastries available before we left for the airport, even at 4:00 in the morning, being extremely helpful & courteous to friends that came to visit us from another hotel in Athens. We would definitely choose this hotel again and highly recommend it to everyone. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating (we were able to check in early and check out late.) The location is terrific and the view from the roof top deck has to be one of the best in the area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Stunning Evening View of Acropolis"
We had a quick, one night stay at the hotel after a Greek island vacation. The hotel was a lovely, quiet respite in Athens that was easily accessible to the metro and also had a breathtaking view of the Acropolis. The hotel staff was perfectly accomodating and our room was well appointed with comfortable beds, nice bath, air conditioning and a set of […] double doors on the outside of the room that truly insulated you from any noise in the hallways. We had an evening meal in the hotel that was fine and a delicious breakfast the next morning. Our stay at the hotel was on a Sunday, in the last week of August, 2013.

"Wonderful stay in the heart of Athens!"
Absolutely beautiful hotel within walking distance to the Acropolis. After dinner, take a stroll a couple of streets down to a charming street filled with restaurants and shops. Hotel staff was accomodating and our room was very clean and comfortable. Would definately visit Electra Palace on our next visit.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location in addition to a great hotel"
My husband, daughter & I stayed at the hotel prior to a cruise. The room was very spacious and the bathroom had quite a bit of room as well. The best part of the hotel is the roof top pool overlooking the Acropolis. Swimming in that at night as the lights come on is something that one normally dreams of doing. We also ate dinner on the roof as well […] overlooking the Acropolis which was fantastic. Staff was super friendly and next time we stay in Athens we will be staying here.

"A Very Nice Place"
Bottom line; this hotel has everything you'll need for a great stay in Athens - location, comfort, cleanliness, good food, and a very helpful and accommodating staff. Book here, and you probably won't be disappointed. Most of the popular sights and eateries are easily within a ten minute walk from the hotel. (Hell, we made it to the upper entrance of […] the Acropolis in less than a half hour, and we're not going to be mistaken for triathletes any time soon!) The bed was very comfortable, and the bathroom was clean and worked well. The rooftop restaurant overlooking the hotel pool and the Acropolis is great; the view is incredible at night. The staff were very pleasant and all spoke English fluently - a huge help when planning excursions to Delphi and the nearer islands. That said, I didn't give the place a perfect rating for this: The fact it was a participating member in Expedia's VIP ACCESS program was a major influence in my decision to book the place; I expected to be upgraded upon check in. Technically, this did happen - we were bumped up to a "junior suite" - a room on the first floor with a not-so-sweet garden view that was no bigger than most basic rooms I've stayed in. My second "upgrade" was free wi-fi - useless to me, who travels with no smartphones, tablet, or other electronic distractions. When you tell me I'm getting "special" treatment that's no visibly better than that for which I originally paid, it takes away from the overall experience. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The staff were all very nice and the hotel it well located. The pools were very small. The food was good but they had one waffle maker which had a very long line. I myself could live with a waffle but you think they could put a second one in if it was that popular. As for the room the first night i woke up to a loud banging that kept me up. When I called […] the front desk they said others had noted it too, but they could not figure out where it was coming from, and it kept me up all night. The next day they said it was coming from the pool pump. They changed my room. I had asked for two separate beds as I was traveling with my daughter and they could not get that right even after the second room change. We traveled all over and this was the only hotel I would not stay at again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"The view of a life time"
We stayed at the electric for three days prior to boarding the ship. The hotel staff is the best in town making your stay with them well worth it. The hotel lobby has a wonderful smell from the cut flowers arranged beautifully in the lobby. The rooms very comfortable and quiet. We had a suite on the top floor and could see the acropolis from our balcony […] and the whole city of Athens. Theoutdoor pool was a little small and was cooler than I expected but you could see the acropolis from there also. It was great swimming and having such a nice view. They also had a good spa and indoor pool inside on the 4th floor which we used also. The water wasn't as cool as the outdoor pool. The resturant on the fourth floor overlooking the Acropolis was outstanding from the food to the service and of course the view.Make a reservation and asks for the tabels along the railing to have a view you dreamed of when planning your trip. I recommend this hotel to everyone if their visting Athens right in the middle of everything with great service. I always rate the shower in a hotel very important detail and the Electra gets a 9 of 10 for having a full shower with good water pressure a tub for bathing and of course a baday. Top notch for those who like a classes well run hotel which I will return to one day. Book it you will enjoy it. . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location to major attractions"
The Electra Palace Hotel met my needs during a 5 night stay in Athens. I was traveling solo and I found the location ideal to major attractions in the city. I walked everywhere in the City and didn't have problems during my stay. The room was a little small by comparison to other hotels I've stayed in. The buffet breakfast was substantial and offered […] enough variety during my stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Very nice Hotel, just too expensiveGenuine Hotels.com guest review
While the hotel has 5 stars out front, 3.5 might be more descriptive. The staff is very friendly; the location is terrific; the roof top restaurant is quite good with a spectacular view of the Acropolis. The room we had was tiny, and the bathroom really quite small. The gym is too small to call a gym; rather 3 machines in a steamy closet. The price […] is right, and there is free wifi in the lobby and public areas. However, there is a stiff charge for wifi in rooms. The rooms could do with some updating, and the bath amenities such as soap and shampoo need help. We brought our own soap.
