Modern clean hotel with very helpful friendly staff. A location within walking distance of so many sights is so important with the traffic in athens and occasional metro strike (one strike during our 4 day stay). Great AC in room, plenty of space, comfy bed and overall very quiet.

"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 resort for 5 days looking for some rest and relaxation. The resort is very well located only 25 minutes from the airport and the hotel arranged our transportation that worked perfectly. The resort is beautiful and well kept and the staff were very friendly and helpful. Our room was a Mediterean bungalow that overlooked the ocean and our own semi-private beach and we were very pleased with it. We were told the hotel was fully booked but it never felt busy and there was always plenty of room at the pool or beach. The beaches were pebbles not sand and this was not ideal but typical for this area. Our breakfast was included and it was excellent with something for everyone. I guess our only negative is the cost on the resort for food and drinks as it is very expensive. Beer 10 euros and 18 for a cocktail is a little over the top especially when you can go to the adjoining public beach and pay less than half. Overall a good experience.

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.
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.
Had a great couple of days here. Really chilled out and relaxing, be it swinning in the pool or lounging at the pool side bar. The staff go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and you won't find one of them not smiling. Would definitely go back.
