Still no pool but Hotel great A review of Electra Palace Hotel Athens
There is still no pool at this hotel. We could see one being opened or renovated in the basement but no sign of one on the roof. There is a new wing being built so it may be on top of that.
Otherwise we really enjoyed this hotel. The location is great being in walking distance of the Acropolis. The Plaka area is full of great restaurants and tourist shops. We really enjoyed being able to trot out and enjoy all the restaurants close by.
Our room was small but very comfortable. Proper black-out curtains on the room and a nice balcony with views of the Acropolis. The balcony is sunny all day but to see the sunset take the lift up to the 7th floor and then the stairs to the rooftop. Should be nice in the summer.
Staff at this hotel are top-rate. Very friendly but informal at the same time.
