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.

We checked in on a Friday afternoon after some hectic travel and covid locator forms scuffling with Aeroflot (minus 5 rating for them). Greeted warmly. Led to our room 601 which is not quite on the top floor but nevertheless has a beautiful view from our balconies of the Acropolis. After dark it is even better. It is a junior suite with a door that closes between the small living room where ur daughter slept and the bedroom. The rooftop restaurant is excellent although a little expensive. Excellent rose on the wine card. Breakfast buffet is good and protocols are enforced. Centrally located and easy to navigate the small streets with strange letters especially if you use google maps. We had a very early checkout on day of departure and they thoughtfully sent some small boxed breakfast with us. Every person in the staff is warm and helpful. And you will take selfies galore on the restaurant terrace on the 8th floor.

The staff at the spa was phenomenal, so friendly and helpful. We had an amazing experience. It was very relaxing and the facilities were impeccable. Strongly recommend it. The hotel itself is beautiful and the location is super central yet quiet. it has a great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop restaurant. The staff is very friendly. Great experience all around. The kids loved it too.

Wonderful experience in the spa. Lovely foot massage by Eva. Joanna looks after me when I use pool and sauna. I use the gym everyday to do my yoga. Yannis and flora are so professional and you should be proud of these amazing staff. The experience is amazing

Great time great place and great relaxation. Exactly what we needed as we started vacation in so much stress. We needed a great deal.of relaxation and we got it. Swimming in the pool initially. Then taking some jacuzzi time and eventually one of the best massages we have ever done. We were also proposed to.rake the ancient Greek.massage and we will do so in the coming couple of days! 😀

Had an exceptional 9-night stay at this hotel. Its staff are beyond any doubt the biggest selling point of this hotel. Truly everyone at the hotel, without exception, went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and enjoyable. The location is amongst the best in Athens and the view of the Acropolis from the 8th floor bar and restaurant is stunning. I had a nice sized room with a decor which is a bit dated. Good sized bathroom which could benefit from a separate shower. Good spa, but the gym is basic. Nice indoor and outdoor pools. Excellent wifi throughout the hotel.
