When Sofia found out that we initially were a bit concerned about our room, she IMMEDIATELY reached out to us and offered an alternative to us!! We were shocked at how responsive she was! We have been staying at this hotel for about the past 10 years. We LOVE Electra Palace Hotel! This is just one example of why we do!

Very nice hotel that is centrally located to the sites. Excellent breakfast with lots of choices. The hotel room is very comfortable. The pool could use some more lounge chairs as there is room for them. Overall, our stay was very nice.

The hotel is beautiful and the service is fantastic. It has a great view of the Acropolis, especially from the rooftop. In the spa, it has a wonderfully warm pool and spa services, such as massage and facials. The breakfast is included. Finally, it is in a perfect location near so many sights. Most sights or areas of interest are within walking distance.
