Really enjoyed our stay. Perfect location, great service. I would definitely stay here againGenuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful and quiet hotel in the Plaka district"
Excellent services from staff. Great location, a block or so from the Plaka shopping areas and restaurants. Close access to bus stations, walking distance to the Parliament and National Garden, Syntagma Square and best of all the rooms have great views of the Acropolis! Breakfast is good with garden seating. Wifi is not free though but you can go to […] any restaurants close by and get free access. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great location in Plaka"
The hotel is in an excellent location, with a nice view of the acropolis from the pool and rooftop bar, and very near to many of the restaurants and souvenier shops, as well as Parthenon, temple of zeus and museums. The rooms are small but clean and quaint. The staff is nice and helpful, and the ability to change dollars for euros at the desk was appreciated. […] The hotel was full when we were there, so we had to wait 4 hours the first day to get into the room, so we went to the Parthenon and had lunch--basically no problem. The hotel is a little hard to find without a map, so I suggest using the one you get when you check in as a must to take on outings. The pool was great in the afternoons after long walks in the summer, but there aren't very many chairs available. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Athens -- The Acropolis"
ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR ... loved the outside garden/patio, terrific service, very clean lobby, room and restaurant - with the bonus view, from our table, of the Pathenon lite up and soft harp music while dining!!! All employees were well trained and professional!! Would not hesitate to stay again!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great location & great views!"
My family and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and absolutely loved it! The hotel is spectacular! The beds in our rooms were extremely comfortable. The roof-top pool and views of the acropolis can't be beat! Buffet breakfast was delicious with a large selection of food. We had dinner at the hotel restaurant during sunset overlooking the acropolis. […] This was by far the best meal we ate in Greece with the most amazing views! The hotel was conveniently located within walking distance to many different attractions. Overall we loved this hotel and definitely would stay here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Hotel in the Plaka Area"
We went to this hotel with another family and we both enjoyed it greatly. The hotel is in the middle of the Plaka area. Amazing view of the Acropolis from the outside pool and roof top. Easy access to the local sites. Would definitely go back to this hotel. Staff was very friendly and helpful too.Genuine Expedia guest review

"One of the best hotels in Greece"
We arrived at the Electra Palace 10 AM after a long flight. We were reconciled to the fact that we would have to wait until 2 PM to go to our room. Therefore, we were pleasantly surprised that the room was ready for us. Not only that, but also our triple room was upgraded to a junior suite at no additional cost. Shortly after we arrived in the room, […] a young lady brought a tray of fresh fruit and a bottle of wine, compliments of the hotel. Our junior suite was spacious and well furnished. The bathroom was upscale. The view from our window was to some old buildings, but that is expected in Plaka. The breakfast was quite good. There is a restauraunt/bar up in the terrace with a must-see night view of the Acropolis bathed in light. There are several restaurants nearby, but they mostly serve the typical Greek fare for tourists. The Electra Palace is in the heart of Plaka, and close to Syntagma square.We will most certainly come back. There is a hotel called Electra nearby, so make sure to give the full name of the hotel to the taxi driver. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Small rooms and pool"
The pool is very small and there was a cokraoch in our roomGenuine Expedia guest review
In Athens, I would not stay in any other hotel. Staff was perfect and the view of the Parthenon from my balcony didn't hurt. Breakfast was fantastic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Very bad room and hotel breakfastGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic hotel in fantastic neighborhood"
Couldn't have been better. Staff very helpful, buffet breakfast fabulous and very extensive, Roof Garden restaurant amazing view and great food, rooms well appointed. Booked 2 rooms - one for our daughters with twin beds, one for ourselves with king bed and balcony. They got them switched, but sorted it out immediately. Location is perfect - quiet street […] but steps away from restaurants. We took the bus from the airport to Syntagma square and walked with our carry-on suitcases the 4 blocks to the hotel. Got a little lost and a fruit-stand operator was very helpful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very nice area of town"
The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. They also had amazing food recommendations. We were walking distance from the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very nice hotel."
This is a wonderful hotel. I stayed for two nights and will definitely stay there again. A bit pricey but worth it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good hotel in good area"
This is an upscale hotel so our room at the Expedia price was small but adequate, although a bit noisy (close to the elevators). It's really nice to have a view of the Akropolis. There is free Wifi access in the public areas. The hotel is perfectly located (why we chose it), in a safe area, well populated, within easy walking distance of most of the […] museums and of the friends we wished to visit. The National Archaeological Museum is a two-stop ride on the Metro. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Thank You Electra Palace"
Our experience was wonderful! The Hotel was clean and the location was in the best location! The staff was very helpful with helping us book tours and suggesting places to dine! We will return if ever in Athens. Thanks Electra PalaceGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel close to acropolis"
The hotel deserves its 5 star rating. Beautiful lobby, dining room and rooms. Don't miss the roof top restaurant with a lighted view of the acropolis.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Beautiful for exploring Plaka & Acropolis!"
The hotel is beautifully situated in Plaka neighborhood of Athens, in a safe and clean area. The facilities are somewhat dated, but still very atmospheric and this is a place with character. If you are looking for an ultra-luxury, modern hotel, this is not for you, but I found it great for a stay of several days for relaxing and walking through the […] Plaka neighborhood and for visiting the Acropolis and other sites such as the government buildings and ancient agora. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the best thing about the hotel is the AMAZING rooftop restaurant and pool views of the Acropolis in the day and evening. The pool is clean and pleasant and the rooftop restaurant is beautiful. We did not eat at the hotel except for the buffet breakfast, so I can't comment on the quality of the restaurant food or service. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great value, great service"
Close to all the popular tourist attractions. Lovely rooftop restaurant with view of the Acropolis. Nice pool for relaxation after a hot day of touring. The hotel staff speak English and are most helpful. We had a lovely room overlooking the courtyard. This hotel is value. We'd stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice post-cruise stay"
Excellent property with a high level of service. Roof-top garden restaurant has a beautiful view of the Acropolis & Athens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We were extremely pleased with your Electra Palace Hotel during our recent stay in Athens. The location was excellent and allowed us to venture into the Plaka and also to enjoy the magnificent view of the Acropolis from your beautiful restaurant, which happened to be on the 5th floor where our room was located. The hotel staff was eager to help us with […] taxis, directions, suggestions, and even contacted a restaurant for reservations. They were professional, efficient, and pleasant with every encounter. Hats off especially to Vicky at the main desk, and Makis, doorman. We were thrilled with the breakfast buffet that came with the room. The variety was enormous and we especially enjoyed the light waffles that we made ourselves - eating all of the fare outside in the lovely garden. Our room was very nice and bathroom attractive. By this time we had adjusted to the smallness of European accommodations. We agreed that the added price of the 5 star hotel was worth it and we would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends and others! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff: Very helpful and attentive. They pointed us in the right direction and gave us pointers on what to see when. Location: Super location. Close to all the big tourist sites and our room had a beautiful view of the water. Facilities: Clean, large quiet room. Great breakfast.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Cozy and freshly renovated"
Overall, I would rate this hotel 4.5. In its own rights, and compared to a majority of the hotels in greece, it was top of the line. You can tell, that everything was renovated. Rooms were very clean, no issues there. Staff, was very helpful in mapping out and showing us how to get from point A to B. We wanted the "greek" life (in regards to food […] spots), they were honest and shared their top locations to hang out and eat. ALL were spot on! Room was a tad small but we were only there for 2 nights. And spent most of our time outside in the city. Loved the breakfast (great selection) and courtyard area to dine in. The only downside of the hotel, was that our room was located at the very end of the hall, right beside the service room, where I guess the maids would get their supplies AND a door leading to the outside roof pool...and it was very noisy, there was no conscious effort by folks to ensure they were not slamming the door.

This hotel was more than we could have imagined...the rooms were clean...the staff was friendly...the view of Acropolis was to die for!!! The only downfall was the walls are paper thin so you could hear everybody that walked by.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"In Anthens - stay here!"
We had booked a very bad hotel around the corner and moved to this hotel. What a difference. Great location, room and staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel with accomodating staff"
We stayed at Electra Palace on the first and last night of a 9 day vacation in Greece. On both occassions we found the staff to be incredibly gracious and accomodating. We checked in quite early both days and were there in the early season - before the rooftop pool bar opened - so they brought us up drinks from the lobby bar. We also recieved great […] recommendations for dinners and tips on seeing the surrounding neighborhood. Of course, the proximity to the Acropolis and other ancient sites is close to unbeatable.

very pleasant, professonal and helpful staff accomodations very good; nice breakfast location great rooftop deck wonderful...too cool to go in pool there is indoor pool and gym which is nice but did not useGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel look no further"
From Day one we were greeted with a smile and treated with respect. Not just the front office and lobby area, but also from the people in the restaurant and the maids. I really enjoyed our stay and will be happy to return soon. I will recommend this Hotel to all my family and friends. Great area close to all attractions. Great breakfast not your basic […] breakfast, but everything I could think of, different eggs, meats, cereals, potatoes, fruits, nuts, jellies, yogurt, and cakes, cookies, pastries, and my favorite waffles, all was so good. Also this was a very safe place to stay at, took pleasant walks at night with out any worries. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This hotel is fantastic. The staff is very helpful and prompt. The hotel is extremely clean with a great breakfast. The view and location are spectacular. We travel a lot and would recommend this hotel to everyone, we will be back. Athens is a beautiful city. You can walk to all the attractions from the Electra. ENJOY!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent hotel in Athens"
The staff are very friendly and helpful. They offer superior service - for example, like the service you get a a four seasons or Ritz. The rooms are small, compared to american hotels but the service and friendliness more than makes up for the smaller size of the rooms. The location is perfect for tourists. This hotel is in where you would want to be, […] in Athens, as a tourist. Close to everything which would interest the tourists. Nice restaurants close by. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Superb location. Good value for money. Excellent experience at the roof restaurant and bar. Up web and friendly staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very friendly and helpful staff"
The staff are very nice and very helpful. The breakfast is simply excellent. The only issue was that the sauna and the steam room only worked on our first day there, then they both seemed to malfunction. The room is alright, but not what I would consider a five-star room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, delicious breakfast"
The best thing about this hotel is its location: right in the middle of Plaka and within walking distance to everything. The complimentary breakfast is also very good...The staff is friendly and helpful. We walked to all the attraction and there are many restaurants nearby. Also within walking distance to Syntagma square (where most tours depart from). […] Wifi is not included and costs $35 euros for 7 days. Beautiful rooftop...Highly recommended!

The staff at the hotel excelled in their efforts to ensure that all of our requests were met and exceeded. The location of the hotel is perfect for the traveler who wants to be close to the sites and accesses to transportation. I must also say how impressed I was with the hotel restaurant. Not only was the food worthy of 5 stars but the view of the […] Acropolis in the evening is stunning! A definite destination for Athens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The Electra Palace is a beautiful hotel in a great location. It is close to shopping, restaurants and historical sites. The hotel is very clean with nice rooms. I would have given this hotel a superb rating, however.....the rooms are extremely warm. If you wish to open your balcony door for coolness the noise on the street prevents this. The beds are […] comfortable and everything else was in good working order. The breakfast is fantastic with very attentive staff. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Five Star Experience with Great Location in Plaka"
We recently stayed at the Electra Palace and can unconditionally recommend it. It has a great location with stunning views of the Acropolis at night, our room was very nice, the service was impeccable, the brunch was great, the room rate was very fair, etc. There are fancier and more expensive hotels in Athens, like the Grand Bretagne, but this hotel […] is great if you are willing to accept something less than opulence. Be sure to make an advance reservation for the restaurant, because it has superior night time views of the Acropolis. You may otherwise not be accommodated. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"No better place!"
By far the BEST hotel I've EVER stayed at! The staff went above and beyond in making our honeymoon as perfect as possible. Excellent location to enjoy the sites and restaurants of Athens. Tasty and convenient breakfast. We loved every second of our stay. I highly recommend this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, wonderful service, rooms are small"
This was a wonderful hotel, and for our first time in Athens, we were very happy that we chose it. Close to all major sites and in a great neighborhood. Rooms were a bit small (but had a balcony view of the acropolis), and also you have to log in with a passcode every time you use the WiFi... besides that, it was flawless. The hotel staff were super […] friendly and helpful on arranging tours and telling us where to go. The restaurant on the top has a wonderful view of the acropolis and amazing food (for a higher than average price though). Highly recommended hotel! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Extraordinary customer service"
I was very pleased. Initially there was a problem with the room we were in (over a courtyard and a little noisy in the early evening). The staff bent over backwards to compensate, moving us to an upgraded room at no extra cost and providing a nice gift as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We could walk to all the sights"
What a great hotel! It was clean, quiet and in walking distance of all the attractions...no need for a taxi. The breakfast was also first rate. And at night we loved to sit on the rooftop and see the lights. Truly a 5 star hotel by my book....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
