I just returned from Greece yesterday and have nothing but raving comments about my stay at the Electra Palace Hotel in Athens as well as the guided tour provided by George Koufopoulos. My husband and I booked a tour with George during our stay in Athens. He took us to sites that regular tours don't visit and was very knowledgeable...

Took my dad for his 70th birthday and it was great for our family trip. The location is so central and the view is unreal! The included breakfast buffet was great and dinner in the upstairs dining room was amazing food with an unreal view! The rooms are small but very efficient and clean. The staff are amazing.

This hotel was beautiful and in the heart of the Plaka district. Easy access to all things Athens. The staff was wonderful and catered to our every need. The breakfast was outstanding. Balcony view of the Acropolis is a must.The only thing lacking was a treadmill but there was a nearby park to run in. Perhaps they have a treadmill...

This was the second time that we chose the Electra Palace while visiting Athens! The location of this hotel simply cannot be beaten. It is situated right at the edge of the "Plaka" in a quiet street (a bit hidden) and in walking distance to the Akropolis and its new museum ( 15 min. perhaps?) and also close to the...

How can can you be in the middle of everything and still have a spectacular view? No kidding! There were plenty of great resturants and quaint shops. All within in walking distance. Shaded streets and outdoor cafés. It is all wonderful, but the view from the 4th floor pool and bar deck is just breathtaking! The smell of fresh waffles...

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
