          If you're only staying one night, splurge for a room with a view of the Acropolis. Make sure to use the swimming pool on the roof as it's quite nice and also has the same Acropolis view. The location is really perfect, as you're right in the middle of the Plaka and can walk to most sights in 10-20 minutes. You can walk to great restaurants and interesting shops within only 5-10 minutes. And thanks to the massive cleanup of 2004, Athens now strikes me as much cleaner and safe at night, so don't be afraid to walk around the Plaka in the late evening to look for dinner. You can even buy take-away food, a bottle of wine or beer at a store, and head back to your hotel room. It's quite a treat to eat in your room with a view of the Acropolis lit up at night.

          There is so much to like about the Electra Palace Hotel: clean, pretty rooms, great Plaka location, and helpful staff. Unfortunately, there is also one GIANT thing that will keep me from recommending or returning to this hotel: the noise! Rooms, despite claiming to have soundproof windows, do not, and at night it is evident when you hear all of the street noise (cars, music, people, etc). Then there is the noise from your fellow travelers, who seem completely oblivious that it is rude to run down a hall yelling at midnight, or that no one wants to hear you and your female companion have a shouting match at 2am. The ultimate indicator of thin walls came when my bottled water fell over on my night table because someone ext door slammed a door at 1am! The floors are hardwood and you also get noise from your upstairs neighbors walking...I think our upstairs neighbor got in his/her daily 10,000 steps in their room! I also know the sound issue must pertain to the entire hotel because after the 2am shouting match, we asked to change rooms and are now in the other building of the hotel and experiencing similar issues. If the hotel invests in some MAJOR soundproofing it would be a great place, but until then, I'd stay away.

          Probably the most fascinating artifact was the famous Antikythera Mechanism. This device was found by deep sea sponge divers from a small Greek isle. It is believed to be an ancient device used for navigation in ships. The time period which it is dated to is before the modern gear. However, the Antikythera Mechanism not only has advanced gears, it has layers of them, and a hundred other associated dials, scales and other features. ...
