    The view at night and the 5 star service and food at the roof top restaurant - amazing way to end a perfect trip!

  • Couple
    7.8

    Stayed here in early June 2012... Highly recommended. If you're confused by the previous reviews (as I was!) then pay attention: In a nutshell, it isn't 5 stars by western European standards. However by Athenian standards, it is. The implication being that if you want a good hotel in a good location, then stay here. If you want what would generally be perceived as a '5 star' hotel, then stop moaning and don't visit Athens!

  • Group of friends

    Nice viwe of Acropolis. Self-made Waffle in the breakfast.

    No pot, free tea and cofee in the room.

    Very nice staff, good location and value for money

    A bit too noisy; we got a twin bed instead of a double

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    The staff were outstanding - very attentive to our every request. The hotel is situated in the centre of Plaka - the old centre of Athens with shops, restaurants, bars together with main sites such as the Acropolis and Agora within walking distance.

    Missed coffee/tea making facility in room. I realise this is a UK eccentricity not copied in most of Europe. Surprised that I was charged to use the Internet.

  • Group of friends
    10.0

    This is a very nice hotel with a perfect location, walking distance to the Acropolis and the Plaka. Although a five star, the price was less than the 3-star we stayed in Venice at the start of this trip. There is a gourmet restaurant on top of this hotel with a view of the Parthenon at night, which is lighted. Actually, I have stayed at this hotel in the past, and deliberately got my 4 other friends to book there for this trip.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    This hotel was one of the highlights of our recent trip to Europe. Everything was perfect, plus they served us one of the best meals we had on the entire trip. The staf was friendly and courteous. the rooms were large and clean and modern. Overall a great expierience.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The staff were incredibly endearing. Helpful, informative, prompt, delicate and kind. All of our needs were met quickly and conveniently with a smile. And the hotel also rearranged several of their services to coincide with our schedule. We were in town to run the marathon, and while we were there the hotel threw a pasta party buffet for the runners the night before the race. Then they opened the breakfast buffet two hours earlier than usual to accomodate runners leaving early for the race and leave us some digestion time. It was clear that they were always thinking several steps ahead of any needs that their guests might have. After the race, there were massage services on stand-by waiting for us. The staff at the Electra were top notch in every way. And the location was phenomenal. After looking around the city, we agreed that there was no place else we could possibly have preferred to be.

    The internet service was pretty sad; it has to be said. There was a fairly high surcharge for using the internet (5 euros for an hour, 20 for three days) and the browsers on th computers in the business center were so many years out of date that most standard websites didn't work at all. And the interface was extremely slow, which could have been either the browser or the connection. This surprised me for a five-star hotel. My previous experience had been that even cheap hotels in most of Europe had up-to-date, high-speed internet access for free. Paying extra for such poor internet service was shocking. Luckily, we didn't have much important stuff to do online. I'd think twice about that if it were a business trip. Also, the indoor pool and jacuzzi were cold.

  • Family with children

    Staff were friendly and very accomodating. Central location, close to ancient ruins & shopping. The rooftop swimming pool under the Acropolis was the icing on the cake.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    Location is good with nice view

    Very noisy even with windows shut and small room

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Staff were very friendly & helpful. The rooms were comfortable, but did not have tea/coffee making & certainly lacked the "luxury" feel. Breakfasts were good, with some typically greek dishes. Lovely garden outside the breakfast room. Internet wasn't free, but not overly expensive. Great location, & not on a busy road, which some of the other 5 stars are.

    Rooms were a little basic for a supposed 5 star, more 4 star standard.

    The location to the Plaka area.

    The hotel staff were somewhat rude.

  • Couple

    well located near the plaka and syntagma square. good breakfast. nice room decor/design.

    room had 2 single beds joined together to make 1 king bed. also their air con was turned off during november but it did get hot and if you open the windows there was street noise to deal with at night.
