Electra Palace Athens
Ranked #12 of 284 Hotels in Athens
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 22 October 2017

The Electra Palace is a perfect oasis in the charming shambles that is Plaka, old Athens, with most of the sites of historical interest, being just outside the hotel door, as well as a plethora of good value restaurants. Spotlessly clean and well apointed rooms and bathrooms. Excellent and friendly service. The rooftop pool is a big plus, but to enjoy the last drink of the evening at the rooftop bar with the Acropolis as a backdrop is what memories are made of. The hot and cold buffet breakfast, taken in the courtyard or breakfast restaurant, is excellent. If you are driving then the "on site" underground car park is much appreciated.

Received an upgrade upon check in for our honeymoon. The front desk staff was top notch. Their rooftop restaurant and bar has great food an a perfect view of the Acropolis. We also used the spa for a massage and it was worth it! Thanks again Electra Palace for a memorable stay.

We’re so pleased that we booked this hotel. So nice and clean hotel. Really friendly and helpful staff. Great service, chocolate-bars at the bed in the evening, perfectly cleaning. Great breakfast. Perfect location, nice and quiet, and in the middle of the centre and plaka. The only thing that’s a bit on the negative, is the coffe, I prefer it a bit stronger, but, in all that’s a small thing, that doesn’t matter that much.

Athens is a bustling and often crazy city but staying in the lovely Plaka district meant we felt safe and away for the bustle of the rest of the city. The Electra was a gorgeous stay, room furnished with quality vintage furniture, the whole place lovingly decorated. The staff went above and beyond. Extremely professional. Wished we could’ve stayed longer than the one night we did stay

Wonderfully located within walking distance to so many attractions. The rooftop pool has a gorgeous view of the Acropolis, as does the hotel bar and restaurant. I had a standard room which was lovely, clean, and well-sized. The morning breakfast is fantastic, the entire hotel is absolutely spotless, and the staff are very helpful and friendly.

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.
