Upgraded to Electra Palace Hotel
By accident, I went to the Electra Palace Hotel (their higher end hotel) and checked in. The staff was looking into my reservation and were discussing something and upgraded me to their 5 star hotel for free. The staff were very professional, accommodating, and respectful. The Electra Palace Hotel was very clean, smelled fresh, and very convenient. It is near Syntagma and Monastiraki. I highly recommend it!

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.
