About Electra Palace Athens, Athens

The Acropolis in sight

A wonderful sight, the ancient Acropolis is a 10-minute walk to the west, and can be viewed from the hotel rooftop. Countless upscale bars and restaurants fill the Plaka neighborhood, and National Gardens of Athens, filled with ancient columns and ruins, are 2 blocks away.

Excellent location. One of the best. Could walk to all major things of interest. We had the 7th floor view of the acropolis. Just perfect.

Good6.0
Good but not five star
It is a clean hotel, central location and overall comfortable rooms. Staff is English speaking. We had breakfast provided which was with good selection and a great way to start the day. Some of the things to be aware of -- it is a five star hotel but the service and facilities do not feel the same as others I have stayed. The exercise room/pool is open from 8am-8pm and it was hard to us to get some exercise prior to breakfast. There is road noise in some rooms. The staff does not take responsibility -- for e.g. our room had a constant noise of toilet flushing every few minutes. We asked multiple staff members multiple times during our 4 days stay and they did not fix it and would either ask to call other numbers or defer it -- "just check it again, I think it is gone". We moved initially because the first room had road noise and were too lazy to ask to move the room again. In terms of WiFi, the free one is so slow that it would remind you of 1990s. When we brought it to te attention of front desk, we were told to try it again -- which of course did not work. You may have to pay for premium or sign up for "Rewards" to get workable internet connection.
