Great Team member(s)

Pros: The location and the friendly and professional staff.
Cons: Bigger elevators
Location: The ancient city of Athens...Lots todo
Hello, I stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel – Athens. The check in experience was excellent. Thanasis was the team member who ensured all my requirements were met including Thanasis recognising I was tired and arranging an early check in/room availability. He was authentic and very customer centric, he even took care of my delivery via courier without me asking. He anticipates guests needs. A unique skill / talent. He is an asset to your hotel. I sincerely thank him for all his efforts and genuine approach.

Boutique hotel with great buffet breakfast

The boutique style of the hotel is wonderful and very close to the tavernas in Plaka (3 min walk). The roof top pool is good for a quick dip to cool down, and the bar allows you to order a drink and stare at the Acropolis. The buffet breakfast was excellent. My partner is gluten free and we are both vegetarians but there were lots of options - rice pudding, pastries, cheeses, olives, salad, eggs and mushrooms, potatoes, make-your-own-waffles etc. I would definitely recommend it.

Lovely Stay

We returned to the Electra Palace after a stay on the islands, to be greeted with a warm "welcome back". The lovely staff upgraded our room to one with a view of the Acropolis which a lovely surprise. The rooms are clean, the hotel is well located and overall it is the perfect choice to stay in Athens.

Beautiful hotel with an amazing location!

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved every minute of it! From the helpful staff that went out of their way for us - I'm pregnant and was looked after from the minute we entered the hotel. The room was comfortable and we asked for an upgrade the last night to for one additional guest - this was done straight away and was really appreciated. The breakfast was yum and the service again really good! Worth every penny - great facilities and that view from the outdoor terrace and pool is AMAZING. We would stay here again in a heart beat! Thank you Electra Palace Hotel!
