Fodor's Review

If you want simple elegance, good service, and a great location, this is the hotel for you—rooms from the fifth floor up have a view of the Acropolis—and in summer you can bask in the sunshine at the outdoor swimming pool as you take in the view of Athens's greatest monument or catch the sunset from the rooftop garden. Located on an attractive back street close to the area's museums, its renovated guest rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated, with ample storage space. Before setting out in the morning, fill up with one of the city's best buffet breakfasts—sausage, pancakes, and home fries. In the evening, relax in the steam room in the hotel spa, have a drink in the shady garden, or enjoy a greek dinner.

Well almost. The worst I could say about the Electra Palace was the electrical: having to put your door card in a slot to turn on the lights; the cost efficient bathroom lights that are like candle light for about 5 minutes until they warm up and brighten up, and places to plug in all your tech stuff. So bring an extension cord with multi-outlets and you're good to go. Oh, yeah, and they get tour groups. Also, lower floors not much of a view if

any, Still, the upside to this property is the lobby is exquisite, the rooms nicely decorated and a good size; the breakfast outstanding, the location in Plaka perfect, and the bars cheap and good. Also 2 pools, one on top with a view of the Acropolis and the other below the lobby . . . both wonderful!
