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 highly recommend this hotel. Based on some of the reviews I was concerned that as a single woman in my mid 60's the hotel would be too trendy for me. That was not the case. The hotel's decor is very artistic but I liked it very much, the staff are warm and the hotel is very inviting. I was impressed that when I arrived I was asked to sit at a reception desk and confer about my room--making me feel a little as if I was in a private residence. When I asked if I could have a very quiet room, the reception staff immediately changed my room and then asked if I would like to go to the rooftop restaurant where I would be more comfortable until my room was available. It was only a short 45-minute wait but I enjoyed a delightful lunch with beautiful views of the city while there. The little extras that make this hotel special abound. For example, every night when the hotel staff came in to prepare the bed for the evening, they freshened the bathroom by making sure it was in proper order. There was always a specal treat such as a chocolate truffle in the lobby to enjoy as I went about my day. When I asked for a restaurant recommendation, I was given a terrific place to eat within a short walk from the hotel. In conclusion, this hotel is very special and highly recommended.
Would recommend this hotel for the following reasons:
It is in the plaka
Restaurants and antiquities minutes walk away
Staff helpful with advice on finding places of interest
Room comfortable and clean
Breakfast has hot and cold fare
I would use this hotel again
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!!!!
