The Pool is open and the location is great! A review of Electra Palace Hotel Athens
We stayed two nights at the Electra Palace before leaving Athens for Santorini. We loved the location at the edge of the Plaka, convenient for seeing the ancient sites and walking to Plaka shops and tavernas. Very nice bathroom. Room was a little tight for the three of us, but still a nice and comfortable room. We found the staff to be excellent, and the whole place is attractive. The rooftop pool is gone, but they have a very pleasant indoor pool, exercise room, and sauna available, and good place to relax after sightseeing. I enjoyed having a drink in the courtyard, or the bartender will deliver your drink to the roof terrace, where you can watch the illumination of the Acropolis in the early evening. One of my best moments was the bartender mixing me up a fruity drink, and bringing it to me up on the roof. When he saw I needed an ashtray, we went down to get one for me, then back up with not only the ashtray, but a glass of water and plate of figs and almonds. So I sipped my drink and ate figs and relaxed looking at the Acropolis! I wouldn't expect a real American style bacon and egg breakfast in Greece ... but make sure you try to yogurt and honey and fruit and bread - it's unbelievably good. We were very happy with this hotel all around.
