Expert reviews

Fodors review:

“Nestled on an unassuming little street in the heart of Plaka, Athens’ quaintest and most historic neighborhoods, the neoclassical-style hotel building is grandiose in a charmingly old-fashioned way.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Athens.

Frommers review:

“The recently redecorated Electra Palace, on a quiet side street between Syntagma Square and Plaka, is one of the upmarket, comfortable, reliable Greek chain of Electra hotels. Unusually for a hotel in the heart of Athens, it has both an indoor and outdoor pool.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Athens.

Excellent hotel, staff, and location.

Location to all major historical sites, food, transportation-metro/bus, laundry facilities. Breakfast was fantastic and included anything anyone would ever want to eat. View of the Acropolis is fantastic anytime of day. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay here again.

Nothing. I’ve stayed in A LOT of hotels and this was in the top 5% for overall value, location, service, etc.

We have stated at Electra Palace previously and looked forward to coming back this time and we were not disappointed. All facilities were very good and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely property. Helpful staff. Very nice stay.

Pool, rooftop bar and restaurant, breakfast - especially the orange juice.

I was traveling with my sister and booked months in advance for a twin/2 bedded room. We got a king bed made up with 2 sets of twin sheets. Not the same as two beds!

Great stay in a wonderful city.

Location and staff were excellent fabulous roof restaurant and great breakfast

Noisy neighbour in surrounding room. We moved room the hotel were very accommodating.


29 April 2024

The hotel was smart and really central; the staff were genuinely friendly and helpful.

The bedroom toiletries were lovely, and our room was very comfortable. There was a great selection of food at breakfast ; I liked the yogurt/fruits & honeycomb. We ate at the outdoor Greek taverna-style restaurant one evening and the food was outstanding there. (I haven’t had smoked tuna before and loved it).

I try to avoid gluten and didn’t see clearly labelled GF bread/pastry options at breakfast.

Lovely decir. Clean. Staff very attentive. Good location. Good food.

The gym was small and poorly equipped. Very disappointed. Pool bar closed at 4pm when was advertised to be open until 8pm.


27 April 2024


Location was outstanding. The view from the pool and restaurant are indescribable. The food is exceptional

The views, the food


27 April 2024

I’ll be back

Great location, immaculate, friendly and efficient staff

Can’t say anything negative


26 April 2024

I recommend this place widely.

The rooftop view and breakfast were worth the price of admission alone. Tucked away in a perfect little corner of Plaka. Spa and pool nice additions.

Ever so slightly dated decor in the rooms.


26 April 2024


The location, quiet street, proximity to attractions and the view.


26 April 2024

Fantastic location and amazing old style modern hotel.

Perfect location to city center and Plaka district. So many food options available, near City gardens and hop on/off bus which is good for travelers. Beautiful hotel aesthetically, modern with a historic style. Rooftop pool and restuarant are amazing, eating with the Acropolis in the background is breathtaking.

Bedding was a little weird. Two beds side by side but not made up as a King for a couple like most other hotels do. The beds then also moved which was a little frustrating. That was the only negative.


19 April 2024

Beautiful and clean


19 April 2024

18 April 2024

Would thoroughly recommend for the location, views and staff

Location perfect. Staff very friendly and welcoming. The view from the roof top restaurant and bar is sublime.

Although clean and well appointed our room on the 7th floor was small and showing signs of age. In particular the bathroom was very small.


16 April 2024

If I arrange a visit Athens again , no doubt, I would choose to stay at this hotel once more. Staff speaks English very well they are really helpful. The hotel is clean, the breakfast is perfect. It is located in the centre. We did not use spa and the pool. I can not comment on those facilities.

Loved the location, the friendly staff

No USBs by the beds, room a little small


8 April 2024

Perfect quiet location, friendly staff, delicious breakfast and comfortable clean bedroom.

The view we had for breakfast overlooking the Acropolis was not only delicious but must have the best view in town. WThe hotel on a quiet side street in central Athens was within walking distance of all the main attractions and sights. Also about 10 minutes walk from the Metro from the airport as well. We loved it and would definitely stay again when in Athens.

We liked everything!
