Stately, with the air of an era long gone, the Electra Palace Athens, hospitable and aristocratic, awaits to welcome you in the heart of the city. Classical in its architecture and design, blending beautifully with the noble historical buildings of the Plaka area, the hotel’s elegant luxury is complemented by the majestic views of the Acropolis that can be enjoyed from the rooftop restaurant, pool, rooms and suites.
Marble-tiled bathrooms; soft duvets; Jacuzzi bathtubs; custom furniture; these are but a few of the details that make the Electra Palace Athens luxuriously enjoyable. The amenities of our hotel will leave you wanting for nothing more: for your comfort and enjoyment, here you will find free Wi-Fi internet connection, laptop size electronic safes and fully equipped bathrooms with hair dryer, bathrobes and slippers, magnifying mirror and more.
Right in the city center and within walking distance from all major sights, easily accessible by car or public transport, the Electra Palace Athens is the ideal hotel for your stay in Athens whether you are here for business or leisure: spend a summer day at our outdoor swimming pool, soaking up the sun of Athens as it rises above the Acropolis – or spend it shopping in the city’s lively markets. Wander through the ancient Agora and visit the Parthenon – then wonder at its glory, all dramatically lit at night, from the balcony of your room. Stroll around the city under the autumn rain, then warm up in the hotel’s sauna. Relax after a day’s hard work - or blow off some steam - at the indoor pool or our gym.
Enjoy our delicious contemporary greek cuisine at the award winning “Electra Palace Roof Garden” or at the “Motivo” in the lounge, or with a drink at the “Duck Tail”, our British inspired bar. For bigger celebrations or for business events in the heart of Athens, our hotel’s five-star service extends to our five meeting rooms and ballrooms: fully equipped, air-conditioned and naturally lit, our halls can cater for up to 350 people for any event type, no matter how formal: host your business meeting here, or organize a successful conference. Or, have the reception or banquet of your dreams, tasteful and impeccable, a festive testament to your own sophisticated style.
Cobbled streets and neoclassical mansions, ancient sites and humble houses hidden behind fragrant jasmine bushes and vibrant bougainvilleas: the Plaka neighborhood in Athens is a destination in its own right. The oldest part of Athens hosts artisan shops, small taverns with delicious local food, amazing museums hidden behind unassuming buildings and more history, culture and architecture than anyone could take in in one go.
A few turns of the road from the modern city center, all of Athens’ history can be found here: its first school and its first university, 11th century byzantine churches and 18th century mosques, golden age monuments and the Roman Agora and the amazing Anafiotika, the tiny Cycladic-style bright white neighborhood perched on the Acropolis to the east of Plaka. Shopping is a must here, whether for souvenirs, fine jewelry or artisanal mementos – and so is lunch or dinner. Also, do keep an eye for street events and parties: they are known to happen from time to time and are always delightful!
