Great hotel, great location

Posted Aug 24, 2014
Pros: Everything
If you want a fantastic view of the Parthenon and a hotel which is located close to most major attractions and a score of restaurants this is the hotel you want to book. Our room was comfortable, large and had a amazing view from the balcony. Only two streets over was the beginning of the Plaka and numerous stores and restaurants. Everyone at the hotel was courteous and though there was an annoying mix up concerning a request for an additional nights stay it was handled quickly and to our satisfaction. Breakfast was included with our stay and the choice of foods was extensive. The outdoor pool was refreshing after a hot day and also has a spectacular view. The small trains that tour the older part of the city go right past the hotel so you can literally get on and off at the door of the hotel.

Beautiful hotel -stunning view- service not great!

Posted Aug 23, 2014
Pros: Decor, pool terrace and rooftop view
Cons: Service and attitude of wait staff in rooftop bar and restaurant!!
The hotel looked like a palace. The decor was beautiful and the decorative details very elegant and high end. There is a spectacular roof top infinity pool which has stunning views of the Acropolis and Lykabidus Hill. The roof top restaurant is beautiful and food is good but service was not good at the restaurant or bar. We arrived late and hungry and we were told the restaurant was open. We sat down and the waiter told us they were closing in 15 minutes and had to order immediately before we had time to really look at the menu. He rushed us through the meal and was not friendly or welcoming. We ordered drinks from the bar and although they were 12euros each my husbands martini was filled only 1/3 full in a very small glass and mine was 1/2 full. When he asked "you don't fill up your drinks? the reply was no we don't. The next night we tried again at the bar. We arrived at 11:30 and no one came to greet us. When we called over a passing waiter, he told us they were again closing and told us we had to order immediately. The sign posted said bar was open until 12 and several people came after us and were served. Overall the hotel was beautiful, the front desk and concierge staff were outstanding, and the room staff friendly and could not do enough for us. But, in such a fantastic hotel there needs serious improvement in the attitude and service in the bar and restaurant.

Great hotel, great location

Posted Aug 22, 2014
Cons: 2 waffle makers, not one, at breakfast (line was 10 minutes long!)
Location: look at the map - it speaks for itself!
no cheap, but ideal to be right in the center of town. Good breakfast and lovely rooftop pool.

Very conveniently located in th heart of Athens

Posted Aug 18, 2014
Pros: Location, location and location
Cons: Just maintain the current level of service and friendliness and Electra Palace will remain my most recommended property in Athens.
Location: Location is the most alluring thing Electra a palace has going for it. You can simply walk to most of the heritage sites and shopping areas.
Electra Palace is located in the heart of Athens and has the best heritage sites and shopping areas within waking distance. It's nicely tucked inside a lane so one doesn't hear traffic or horns blaring at anytime of the day. The poolside restaurant at the terrace overlooks the Parthenon and a dinner there is highly recommended. My only suggestion to readers would be to ensure you get a room with a view - of the Parthenon or the small garden within the property. Else, you'll just have to keep your curtains closed or watch the neighbouring apartment block residents drying clothes in their balconies or carrying out their daily routines.

Excellent Hotel with great views of the Acropolis

Posted Aug 4, 2014
Pros: Great location and views. Excellent breakfast buffet, Great hotel room and staff
Cons: The only thing I was a little disappointed with was that I booked a double queen bed and a single, but we ended up having 2 single beds together.
This hotel is just perfect. Its in a great location in Plaka close to lots of restaurants and bars, but still remaining peaceful and quiet. The views from the 4th floor where there was a swimming pool a restaurant and a bar was absolutely fantastic. Our room was clean and tidy and had everything there to qualify for a grand 5 * hotel. The breakfast buffet was also indeed excellent, with a wide choice of English and continental foods. The reception staff were polite and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Cons: Not all the bedrooms have an acropolis view. However expedia doesn't specify which one you're signing up for.
Location: Everything is near to the Hotel except the airport.
Had various days to stay in the hotel in a trip that was built on different periods of stay. The Hotel itself is spectacular for being close to everything in Athens. However t's quite uncomfortable for getting in and out of the city.
