Amy Adejokun Section editor

The Electra Palace Athens is a pleasant hotel with charm. It is one of the best hotels in the Greek capital. The facilities are comfortable and the service level is very respectable. Its greatest attraction is its view over the Acropolis, under a mile's walk away. Its location in the Plaka district is also an asset - the moment you step outside of the hotel you are instantly immersed in the Greek atmosphere of the city.

    Location 8.04 /10

    The establishment is located in a small street at the heart of Plaka, next to Adriano street. The location is ideal for strolling around the area but it is difficult to reach by car or taxi. However, there is an underground station just 200 meters away. The Acropolis is less than a mile from the hotel. Transfers to the airport take around 35 minutes by car, depending on the traffic. As for the port of Piraeus, it is only 6 miles away.

    Accommodation 9.20 /10

    The hotel has 102 standard guest rooms, 33 superior rooms, 9 junior suites, 10 suites and a presidential suite. The standard guest rooms are 25m², the same as the superior rooms. Some rooms have a great view of the Acropolis, but not the rooms in the basic category, which are also lacking a balcony. The superior rooms have wooden floors. The suites are tastefully decorated, which is not the case in the lower categories where the decoration is slightly outdated, although the paintings on the walls are authentic. The bathrooms are not very big but they do have a small bathtub and a shower. It's a shame that the toilets are not separated from the rest of the room. In terms of amenities, all the essentials are there: minibar, safe, flat-screen TV, etc.

    Overview 8.45 /10

    The Electra Palace Athens is one of the luxury hotels in the Greek capital. It has very large lobby, that is both airy and nicely furnished. It is lacking a bit of personality however. The hotel has a terrace with a swimming pool. Unfortunately the pool itself is no more than ten meters long and four meters wide. A poolside bar serves a menu of light dishes throughout the day. But the hotel best feature is its stunning view of the Acropolis. The sight is as beautiful during the day as it is at night.

    Food and drink 8.70 /10

    The main restaurant, Motivo, is open for all three meals of the day, from 6:45am to 10:30pm. It has a nice view of a small garden, but the room lacks charm. As for the food itself, it is mainly Mediterranean: The restaurant is on the lobby level. The second restaurant, the Electra Roof Garden, is located on the 5th floor and affords a breathtaking view of the Acropolis. This restaurant is cosy and has a high reputation in Athens. The Greek food is excellent. However, it is only served in the evening, from 7:00pm to midnight. As for refreshments, head to the poolside bar or the Duck Tail Bar on the same level as the lobby.

    Spa 7.7 /10

    The Olive Tree Spa is nicely fitted out. It includes, among other things, a Jacuzzi, a sauna, a steam room, an indoor swimming pool, a small gym and two massage rooms. The spa therapists offer a traditional list of treatments, massages and facials.

      The Grande-Bretagne is located beside the Grecotel Plaza. And, just as the Grecotel Plaza, it is a luxury hotel in a dream location: the large Parliament square where every hour you can admire the changing of the guards on duty at the gates.

      The Plaka hotel offers excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and the decoration is modest. But you can especially take advantage of being literally at the gates of the beautiful district of Plaka with its army of small restaurants and busy streets open late at night, at the foot of the Acropolis. Finally, the luxury!

      The Stanley hotel is located on Karaiskaki Square, a few feet from the subway station bearing the same name. But do not expect great luxury. The air conditioning does not work very well and the windows fail to filter the incessant noise of the town, both day and night.

      A small and unpretentious hotel, Attilos has the great advantage of being very well situated on the outskirts of the historic centre. It is perfectly suitable for tourists with small budgets that do not seek higher quality hotels.

      A small contemporary hotel in the heart of Athens, Fresh Hotel is an ideal base for exploring the rest of the city from if you do not want to compromise on design or cleanliness. Most hotels in Athens tend to be in dire need of a renovation and are not always as clean as you might want them to be. Fresh is part of the Design Hotels label, guaranteeing a certain standard in the quality and design.

      Here is a hotel that, as its name suggests, is rather more suitable to smaller budgets. You will not find great luxury here, and the soundproofing and the air conditioning system leave something to be desired. There is only one real advantage: you are two steps away from the Acropolis.

      One of few hotels in mainland Greece that has earned an official star in the Easyvoyage classification. An achievement which deserves to be noted. Indeed, this hotel is outstanding; firstly, due to its location, at the foot of the Acropolis, and secondly for its modern and very pleasant architecture, decor and furnishing, making it a great place to visit to stay when visiting the Greek capital for a couple of days.

      Open since the 30s, the King George proudly sports the "Luxury Collection Hotel" label. This elegant establishment enjoys an exceptional location in the Plaka area. Unfortunately, it does not have much to offer in terms of facilities, but it is comfortable nevertheless. The hotel decor gives pride of place to various tones of beige which blend perfectly with the wooden furniture. The King George carries out regular renovations in order to keep the hotel at its best. The latest renovation work took place in 2013.

      The NJV Athens Plaza is a comfortable hotel with a certain charm. Its facilities are well laid out and decorated, even though the standard guest rooms aren't to everyone's taste. Its lack of facilities is compensated by its agreement with a nearby club. Clearly the location at the heart of Athens is one of its main assets.

Although the hotel is not as well located compared to its competition, it has other cards up its sleeve. Its numerous facilities allow guests the choice of a whole host of activities. The main building's architecture is not particularly appealing from the outside but it contains a wealth of surprises inside.

      Open since the 1960s, the Arion Resort & Spa is named after the legendary poet. Its infrastructures were updated by architect Manolis Vourekas five years after its opening. At the time, it welcomed many famous guests, such as Nelson Mandela, Frank Sinatra, Jane Fonda, Jackie Onassis and Tony Blair. In 2004, the P. Masourides Company architecture firm and the Hirsch Bedner Associates interior design company carried out some major renovations. Their goal was to retain the establishment's classic style all while adding a touch of modernity. After it was re-opened in 2006, the Arion was welcomed into the Starwood Luxury Collection family. Today it belongs to the huge Astir Palace complex, like the Westin Athens and, in 2016, the W. The grounds extend over 74 acres on a private peninsula.

      The Divani Palace Acropolis is one of the establishments in Athens that offers a high level of comfort. The hotel is charming and well set out, but it lacks personality. However, it is still a great base from which to visit the Greek capital thanks to its good location within the city. The guest rooms are comfortable but lack personality. On the other hand, the summer restaurant is a real asset: installed on the roof, it offers breathtaking views of the Acropolis.
