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.

Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.

Stayed at the hotel for 4 nights during March 2019. The indoor pool in the spa was a great asset as it was a great attraction for my youngest granddaughter. The staff were very nice and super helpful. The only real criticism I have is that the windows on the street side should

Can’t speak more highly of this hotel. it is close to the hustle and noise of Syntagma Sq but far enough away to be an oasis of calm. Staff, rooms, food and public area are top rate. Our room provided an excellent view of the acropolis, Value for money very good in my opinion.

The Electra Palace is a 5 star Hotel and this rating is due to the public areas and dining. The room itself was small but clean and modern. The breakfast dining area was excellent with a good selection. The alternative rooftop restaurant offers incredible views of the Acropolis

We had a standard room so I can’t comment on the triple rooms. Loved the location it is awesome! Walk to Plaka and soooo many eating options in the area. We also stayed at the Royal Olympic Hotel and it was great! A bit further to walk to Plaka but nothing hard to do. You may find what your looking for at Royal Olympic.

Not sure, but not all rooms have a view. I think the superior double and the suites are the ones with s view.

"See if a room overlooking the acropolis is available"
"After we checked in we realized our room did not have a balcony or view, so ask for a room with a view!!"
