                Excellent location, you can walk to the Acropolis and it is in a lovely old area of the city near many excellent restaurants. The staff was exceedingly helpful and room immaculate. Roof top pool and great views of the city.

                Tiny gym with one treadmill that was broken. Tiny indoor pool. The bed could use a new matress.

                Friendly staff, good location and nice swimming pool

                The services which had been requested by other cunstomer were charged to my invoice.

                The hotel was very nice and in a good location. Hotel staff was very welcoming and helpful traveling in difficult times (strikes in Greece and volcano in Iceland). The rooftop restaurant was incredibly good.

                Wireless LAN didn't have range in our room and should be free in this class of a hotel. The restaurant recommendation (Daphne's) by the concierge for dinner was poor and very expensive compared to the quality. The two Michelin-guide recommended restaurants I asked about were talked down as tourist places, but we got a way better experience with those.

                They were very nice I was stranded as a result of the volcano and they were very sympathetic and reduced my room rate for the extra nites.

                Beds were hard and had plastic over the matress??

                The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was excellent (in the middle for everything) both for sight seeing and shopping. Also reasonably close to the subway to get around the rest of Athens and to the airport if you wanted.

                It was a bit on the expensive side but the rates were standard for a large city, other than that there is not much wrong with the hotel or its location

                Location of hotel excelent for doing all the sights on foot.

                Breakfast service poor at times and range on offer did not suit me.

                The location was excellent and we were able to walk around to places of interest, shoping and cafes were also nearby.

                The room was small and the view was poor. The next door hourse were in a bad state and it wasn't good to see this from the hotel room. The spa was open but not staffed and the pool was cold.

                Great Location. Very close to the core of Plaka/Akropolis and Museums. Beautiful bar with a view. Staff very professional, serious and extremely helpfull.

                just a detail: swimmingpool water not clean, above all when hydromassage is on. That makes the bath unpleasent.

                Friendliness and immediate responsiveness of the staff and their attitude that you could bring any question to them

                We enjoyed the total experience at the Electra Palace Hotel Athens.

                Good breakfast, nice clean hotel, gym & pool, good location

                Small rooftop pool with only 6 deck chairs for the entire hotel!!! Over 35-45 people in pool area and kids noisy and splashing the whole time so you couldnt really lie back & relax.

                We stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel Athens for three nights in July and we had a wonderful time. The location was incredible and also the views. The swimming pool on the top floor and the views of the Acropolis are superb!!

                a pleasure to stay in in every way. coffee and breakfast available for departure in small hours

                pool is too crowded - but it does have a view of the Acropolis!

                The location was great and the view just from the garden terrace/pool is worth it. Would stay again. There is a grocery store right down the street on the left that sells cold water and snacks with an english bookstore right across the way.

                All of the rooms are not wireless. Wireless is available in the lobby. We had to use a hard wire internet connection. Good if you have a laptop, but not so good if you rely on an iPad/pod/phone. The bathroom smelled our first day from a drain in the bathroom. We covered it up and that seemed to work. The restaurant with a view is outrageously priced. Worth it for a once in a lifetime romantic date, but otherwise skip it, grab a snack and sit by the pool area after sunset to get a good view of the Acropolis all lit up.

                The location the breakfast and the facilites offered

                Very small room and bathroom, very close the windows of the neighbour buildings was impossible to open the window. Bad value of money.
