Stayed here for a few nights for work visit and on the whole extremely satisfied. Impressive lobby on entrance. Check in fairly smooth even though we had a number of rooms under same booking. Was a bit surprised however given the multiple bookings, some members of the group were in different parts of the hotel. This was a tad frustrating....

Stayed in this hotel in September. It was in a fantastic location, and the view of the Acropolis was amazing. The service was a little hit and miss, our room wasn’t ready at 2 and the staff member who said she was going to tell us it was ready seemed to have forgotten about us, as I had to go...

the rooms could use some work, but they were charming in an old-fashioned way. however, the staff were so hospitable and the front-desk made such an effort to make sure our family (parents + one toddler) were comfortable in a family suite. breakfast was meh, with a cafeteria feel -- i suggest forgoing and just getting coffee/pastries from any greek...

This is a wonderful hotel, classy in a quiet way, located on a quiet side street in the historic Plaka neighborhood. It is walking distance to just about everything. We had a premium 7th floor room with a terrace facing south, with a stunning view of the Acropolis. The service was perfect, with English-speaking staff who were very helpful without...

I stayed in a suite for two nights. The room is beautiful with gorgeous decor and you can enjoy the view of acropolis, and with sunset. There is a balcony with a table and chairs. You can sit and enjoy nice sunshine. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Spa massage was very relaxing after long walk in the city.

We had an out-of-this world massage here at the Electra Palace Hotel. We upgraded from our Hotel stay cum 30 min massage package to 100 min Ancient Greek Massage. It was heavenly! The massage technique was a little different, and they used cupping. The cupping was different from the traditional Chinese type, so there was no danger of being burnt...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Stately, with the air of an era long gone, the Electra Palace Athens, hospitable and aristocratic, awaits to welcome you in the heart of the city. Classical in its architecture and design, blending beautifully with the noble historical buildings of the Plaka area, the hotel’s elegant luxury is complemented by the majestic views of the Acropolis that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, pool, rooms and suites. Marble bathrooms; soft duvets; handmade carpets; custom furniture; these are but a few of the details that make the Electra Palace Athens luxuriously enjoyable. The amenities of our hotel will leave you wanting for nothing more: for your comfort and enjoyment, here you will find satellite T.V.s, laptop size electronic safes, Wi-Fi internet connection, and fully equipped bathrooms with hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, magnifying mirror and more. Right in the city center and within walking distance from all major sights, easily accessible by car or public transport, the Electra Palace Athens is the ideal hotel for your stay in Athens whether you are here for business or leisure: spend a summer day at our outdoor swimming pool, soaking up the sun of Athens as it rises above the Acropolis – or spend it shopping in the city’s lively markets. 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. For bigger celebrations or for business events in the heart of Athens, our hotel’s five-star service extends to our seven meeting rooms and ballrooms: fully equipped, air-conditioned and naturally lit, our halls can cater for up to 350 people for any event type, no matter how formal: host your business meeting here, or organize a successful conference. Or, have the reception or banquet of your dreams, tasteful and impeccable, a festive testament to your own sophisticated style. ... more   less
