We showed up very early, 7AM. Check-in was very personal - we had a lovely chat about our travels .Our reservation included breakfast but we were leaving early the next morning, the hotel staff was most accommodating they said we can have our breakfast today instead. While we were consuming breakfast our room was prepared for us. Breakfast food is first class. All egg dishes are made to order so they are as fresh as you can get. Coffee is very good.
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.
Arrived from the airport (X95 bus every 15 min) to Syntagma square, costs 5 euros for adults and half price for children and takes 45 minutes. It is cheaper and quicker than the metro.The hotel has good facilities and our view (from room 506) looked onto the Syntagma and the national gardens - Brilliant!! The hotel is in walking distance to the Acropolis, the national gardens and the temple of Zues. The breakfast is plenty both hot and cold buffet.
Take the ticket at the Acropolis for 12 euros for adults (free for children) and included in the price is for other 5-6 attractions. The people are very friendly and most speak English well. We travelled to Aegina island by ferry and is doable in a day. The only slight downside is the fact the hotel could be noisy if you left the window open as it is on a busy road. The city doesn't seem to sleep just like London!! Buses to the airport and the metro are all within walking distance.
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!!!!
Loved the hotel. We stayed at a different hotel for the first 3 days and then at Electra. Both great stays but I loved that Hotel Electra was in the city center. Also great that when you closed the balcony door it was very quite in the room. It was lovely weather and could have used a little bit of air conditioning during our stay but it could not be used yet. Great food in the restaurant as well.
Athens’ central square and transportation hub is within 2 km of the picturesque Plaka neighborhood and the Acropolis. The Greek Parliament building is adjacent to the bustling square, where visitors can witness evzones or changing the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. West of the square on Ermou Street is the one of the most fashionable retail districts in the city.
