According to Lonely Planet, “the Acropolis is the most important ancient site in the Western world” and “a glimpse of this magnificent sight cannot fail to exalt your spirit”. Guests that stay at the Electra Palace Hotel can take in views of this historic monument from both the swimming pool and the rooftop garden.
The Electra Palace Hotel in Athens is located in the Plaka neighbourhood -- the oldest part of Athens -- which is home to cobbled streets, neoclassical mansions and ancient sites. Within this area you’ll also find artisan shops, small taverns and a number of museums. The hotel is a 5-minute walk from Syntagma Square and a 15-minute walk from the Acropolis. The Daily Telegraph describes it as “a peaceful base for visiting the city’s top cultural attractions”.
Within the hotel there’s a spa with an indoor swimming pool, an outdoor swimming pool (which is closed during the winter), a poolside bar, a sauna, a hot tub, a gym and a lounge. There are two restaurants -- Electra Roof Garden which serves Greek cuisine and Motivo Restaurant which serves up Mediterranean dishes. According to previous guests, the views of the Acropolis from the Electra Roof Garden are pretty special.
There are 155 bedrooms and each one has a minibar, a laptop-sized safe, free Wi-Fi and satellite television. Some of the rooms on the higher floors also boast views of the Acropolis.
Wi-Fi is available in the hotel’s public areas for an additional cost.
