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...
We usually prefer smaller, boutique hotels, but we chose the Electra Palace for its pool area, knowing we would be in Athens in the heat of July. We found lots to recommend: the employees we encountered were friendly and helpful; the breakfast buffet was plentiful...More
Charming old hotel. Room was very comfortable and well equipped. We had a balcony with a view of the Acropolis. Lovely swimming pool on the roof and indoor pool in the spa. Breakfast was excellent and very good cappuccino. We would stay here again. WiFi...More

we had a week in athens and this hotel is the best choice we could make. Very welcoming staff, helpful reception and a very comfortable room with good sense of decoration. Roof top pool with scenic view to acropolis and old town.
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.
