Very good location

Good location, good service, room's clean
Very good location, just located at the main street of Symtagma. The staffs are very helpful. It's also very close to Akropoli. Lots of restaurants and bars nearby. The only bad thing is the wifi, the free wifi is very very slow. They charge for the better wifi.

Great location

Location. friendly staff, decent/clean rooms
I cannot imagine a better location for this hotel. It's at the centre of the action, with a great selection of restaurants surrounding it, and also near (few hundred metres) to the metro, tram stop and airport bus.

Most of the time very pleasant

Centrally located, close to Syntagma, Plaka, and other shops. They try to make sure to solve the problems that arise. Housekeepers are excellent, and trustworthy.
My stay at Electra Hotel Athens was 97% of the time Great. I have to mention that at the front desk Joseph and Foffy were EXCELLENT, very pleasant, informative and ready to help you anytime for any changes and accommodations. Overall, the 11 days that I spent at Electra Hotel, I can confidently say that I had a non-problematic and satisfactory stay.

Good hotel

Location, location location
booked a 3 bed - room online,prepaid in full- just for one night as was to catch a flight early morning the next day. Arrived at hotel - reception had not received my booking. I showed them the email confirmation, but instead of picking up the phone and confirming with travel agent, insisted that I give credit card details --just in case the next day the reservation team had a problem. Manager was very helpful, got us a room immediately though. Room was nice and clean, slightly on the smaller side . Wonderful location - right next to syntagma square- metro and local shops. The manager also arranged for early morning tea for us as we were leaving before breakfast time. A very nice gesture . Much appreciated . I cannot comment on food as had none. But have given 4 rating as cannot review till you check atleast one box. The biggest problem and shortcoming was the shower not working. Next morning as I was having an early shower - I noticed very poor water pressure in the shower. No time to complain as in a hurry to the airport . However caught in shower with soap on the face and the shower stopped working altogether . Had to resort to using a cup and switching to tap mode to finish off. Very inconvenient. Expect better from a 4 star property , but can understand it might have been a one off.. Too short a stay to make a definite judgement. However the helpful staff and location would make me give them another chance in future and I would recommend it if you want to be in the centre of Athens .
