About Electra Palace Athens

Old World hotel with pool and a view of the Acropolis

In the Plaka district

The Old Town district of Plaka is home to Electra Palace Athens, a 5-minute walk south of Syntagma Square in the city center. The Greek Parliament building is also nearby, and a handy tram station right outside the hotel connects you to the rest of the city.

The Acropolis in sight

A wonderful sight, the ancient Acropolis is a 10-minute walk to the west, and can be viewed from the hotel rooftop. Countless upscale bars and restaurants fill the Plaka neighborhood, and National Gardens of Athens, filled with ancient columns and ruins, are 2 blocks away.

Outdoor hot tub and pool

The cool interiors offer a break from busy Athens city center, and there are indoor and outdoor pools, a fully equipped gym, and outdoor hot tub on hand if you want to relax. Three restaurants offer Greek, Italian, and Chinese cuisine, and secure underground valet parking (surcharge) is available.

Marble baths and slippers

The 155 guestrooms and suites have an aristocratic elegance, with wooden floors and marble bathrooms, plus bathrobes and slippers for your comfort. Free WiFi is available in each room, as well as a minibar, and room service is available around the clock.

Electra Palace Athens

Electra Palace Athens
Very Good8.0
Very nice hotel in a superb location. Large clean and comfortable rooms. Breakfast was of high quality. Only tiny issue was that staff forgot to bring coffee to the breakfast table on 2 out of 3 occasions, but this was such a tiny issue. Would stay again.

Electra Palace Athens
Fabulous place to stay
Electra Palace was so much nicer than expected with really friendly and helpful staff. The location is superb, easy walking distance to all major sites but still peaceful in the hotel. The roof top pool was bliss after long days sight seeing and watching the sunset with a drink along with one of the best views in Athens was just incredible.
