A fabulous stay with the roof top pool, bar and restaurant with a view of the Acropolis being the highlight....amazing! (Superb service from George and Pericles) Located about 10 mins drive from the centre of Athens, the free shuttle coach takes you in and collects.....last trip 19:15 19:30. Also a drop off and collect to a great beach (shingle) with beautiful, clear sea. Immaculately clean, excellent choice of breakfast and very helpful reception.
My husband and I stayed for 2 nights at the Electra Palace and it was FABULOUS! The hotel staff were warm, friendly, and very accommodating. We arrived much earlier than anticipated and they got us a room right away and ensured we had everything we needed. The room itself was very comfortable and had all the amenities you would expect from a property of this caliber. The breakfast was delicious with many options depending on varying tastes. We had booked a tour for one of the days and when the bus had not arrived the staff was more than happy to contact the company on our behalf to ask for estimated arrival time. We spent the afternoon poolside which was great given the warmer weather we experienced while in Athens. Room service was prompt and the meals / drinks poolside were very satisfying. Location is wonderful as you are close to all the major sights and many great restaurants. I would HIGHLY recommend this hotel as being of great value in all areas.
I visit Athens every year. Have been staying at a different hotel and this year we were told they did not have the room. I booked the Athens Plaza as ti was the closest hotel to where I like to be that did not seem outrageously priced! I WAS EXTREMELY surprised at how amazing the staff were and how beautiful and spacious the hotel was! In simple words this will be where we will stay every year from now on!!!!
The location was excellent, close walking distance to all the main attractions. The hotel restaurant and lounge on the 7th floor has the best night view of the Acropolis.
The room was very comfortable, with luxury furnishings but we had an interior view. Excellent, quiet air conditioning.
The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. They gave us excellent restaurant recommendations for dinner.
It was somewhat expensive but worth it. We will defenitely stay there on future visits to Athens.
The hotel was a close walk to main attractions, such as the olympic stadium, acropolis and agora. It was a 20 minute walk to Syntagma square and easy to get to by public transport from the airport. The room was comfortable.
"What a view of the Acropolis this is where to say"
A classic hotel of the old style, great service, beautiful ambiance and a view of the Acropolis like no where else in Athens. To get the view from your room you need to book a special side but you can also go to the rooftop garden for a meal and be amazed at the views. This is one of those special places to stay.
We stayed at the Athenaeum from September 13th to the 18th. Beautiful large bedrooms and bathrooms. Beautiful pool area. The hotel is a little out of the way, with no where to eat withing walking distance. However, there is a free shuttle about ever 30 minutes that takes you to the Parliament Buildings, where you can catch metro, tour buses, city buses to take you anywhere. The concierge was very helpful in recommending restaurants in the withing a 7 euro taxi ride. The view from the Premiere restaurant is spectacular, although the meal is a bit pricey. During the summer, you can only eat outside. The night we were there was pretty windy and cool, however they did bring me a nice blanket/shawl to whear which kept me quite comfortable.
