fine location, in the middle of shopping center. breakfast was excellent.staff willing to help. cleaning service was excellent no terrace restaurant
good location One staff in reciption was not polite in giving info about additional taxes and wanted me to just sign the credit card bill quickly!
Excellent customer service, modern and spacious room I will definitely come back and stay with Electra.
Convenient location, very comfortable double room for single person! No
Excellent location, at 2 minutes walk from stop of X95 bus from airport; around corner from Akropolis. Good room, friendly staff, great breakfeast No complaints
location, staff, and enviornment
The location is the main advantage of the hotel. I didn't like the small bathroom in which it was difficult to move.
Friendly, courteous, helpful staff, great location, clean, attractive facility
Room was tiny, bathroom was tiny, staff was incredibly rude. Make sure you state the number of guests (e.g., 2) and not just that you need one bed or they will try to give you twin bed.
Very convenient location, very comfortable.
Location, comfort, cleanliness and value for money
Excellent service, good location, excellent spa & fitness center. Nothing
Very pleasant and knowledgeable concierge We didn't like the room first provided but after complaining received smaller but with much better view. Why not to provide the better room initially?
Room is well appointed and very comedienne. Staff is friendly and helpful. A beautiful well decorated old hotel with modern conveniences. Service in restaurants was a little sporatic. Water pressure in shower a little weak. No check out on TV, and in person checkout was slow.
Fantastic foyer, great roof top garden restaurant, luxurious.
Location is very nice.
close vicinity to all sights
The hotel as name suggests was very Grand the design was very beautiful
the service and rooms were all exactly as advertised this is truelly a 5 star hotel.
Loved the elegance of the hotel, service and roof top dining. Nothing, just perfect!
The comfort and service were of the highest quality. We enjoyed our stay, and were made to feel welcome. The food and beverage prices were extremely high, so we availed ourselves of these to the very minimum!
시설은 정말 훌륭합니다. 객실 청결도, 안락함 등등에 매우 높은 점수를 주고 싶습니다. 주위 환경이 몹시 좋지 않습니다. 단지 동네가 낡은 것 뿐만 아니라 지저분하고 어수선합니다.
가격대비 시설이 훌룡했습니다. 로비에 인터넷을 할 수 있는 공간이 있어 편리했고 안전금고가 있어서 편하게 다닐 수 있었습니다 .호텔앞에 지하철역에 까르프가 위치해 쇼핑하기도 좋았습니다. 난방 환기팬에서 소리가 계속나서 불편했습니다. 또 침대가 스프링으로 되어서 침대에 앉을때마다 소리가 났습니다. 또한 지하철역에서 도보 10-15분사이이며 지하철 역이 관광하기 최적의 장소는 아니이지만 전체적으로 보았을때 가격대비 매우 훌룡합니다.
very helpfull and friendly staff. clean hotel. nice location. away from downtown rush. none
Breakfast and the 8th floor restaurtant which has an amazing view of Athens, Nothing. Basically the holel has low quality of mattress and pillows. They do not provide complimentary beverages of any kind. The location is on a busy street and is surrounded by narrow streets and apartments. The hallways are dark and lights are too dim to see the door number or the side of key to put into the electronic lock. I am not sure it is a 4-star hotel.
A nice looking hotel with a fantastic view of the surroundings from the top roof! Wonderful breakfast and nice staff at the breakfast and in the lobby. Not very alert personnel at the top roof restaurant, lots of mistakes, the food was ok but costed more than it was worth! The beds were far to hard for all of us and that is the reason why we would not choose this hotel again even if our room was very good. The poolhours could be more generous.
Nothing-This is not a five star hotel (a five star hotel has workable equipment, supplies dressing gowns and slippers and usually the beds are of a reasonable size-we had the opportunity to stay in a 3 star and it seemed like heaven compared to this hotel. Paying extra for a hotel with a swimming pool is simply a waste as it was closed and does not open until after Easter. The AC was not working, the decor was poor, the toilet seat stained, towels worn out and dirty, bed not a double and couldn't even fit the child on the single bed supplied and due to the AC not working the windows had to be opened resulting in it being very noisey and got bitten badly by mosiquitos-the hotel could not even supply an electrical or any mosiquito remedy.
Breakfast is very nice and the staff are helpful The room is old. The nearest Metro station Victoria station is closed during my stay!!! Can't beleive it!!
Good position of the hotel, the room number 711 (superior) is better and with good panorama (Partenone and hill). Good service and quality for Greece and not expensive. Five stars as four in Italy, France or Germany, but really very good for a nice weekend. Thumbs up!!!
The hotel is under reconstruction in some area and there is noise, also the rooms had a bad smell and it was necessary to keep the window open. The location is good, we had a nice view but I don't think that the 5 stars of the hotel are corect ( maybe 4 stars is right).
Pool very nice Nothing
Tout en général Internet payant
The location is far from the city center. The hotel has only one restaurant including a pool bar which was booked for a private function for 2 nights. This limited us to dine in the indoor restaurant. The female waiter was too rude and didn't want us to sit in the dining area but only next to the bar.
Very good welcome, real feeling to be a customer. The staff did all their best so that we had an enjoyable stay Room air conditioning little bit noisy
The position was good, friendly / helpful staff / good breakfast
The location of the hotel was great. It is very close to the Acropolis, which was the reason for us to visit Athens, Greece. The view from the roof of the hotel was stunning.
During previous stays in winter, the rooms were centrally heated and it was impossible to get the temperature below 25 degrees Celcius without opening the windows. During this stay, I was able to switch on the airo . They told me they changed thear heating policy after receiving complaints. Bravo! No reason to avoid this hotel any longer.
Definitely the location is outstanding! Don´t have separate twin beds. All rooms have double beds, that can be a limitation.
The Plushness of the hotel. They allowed us into our rooms at 9:00 a.m. on our arrival day. Wonderful!! We could sleep and then hit the town.
Well situated hotel.
the pool the pool the pool it was so refreshing after a hot day of travel or site seeing a true treat! the big fluffy extra pillows were a bonus, was properly air conditioned and plenty of room to bounce around. breakfast was great, fresh OJ and Greek Frappé coffee yumerola!!! the pool and deck gets a bit crowded at peak times as it is quite small and overly chlorinated so bring your goggles!
Service was impeccable, food was delicious, especially upstairs on the rooftop. Killer view. Oh, and the mattress and bedsheets are of high quality - you'll sleep very well. The wifi is kinda slow, shower design will leave your floor soaked
I had a noisy room on the street.
Location and American Breakfast. Some, but not all, of the reception desk staff did not seem too interested in helping out of towners. None had ever heard of Continental Airlines and were not too interested in helping me get in touch with them.
The hotel was great. Perfect location and a great example of a 5 star hotel. Staff were very friendly, spoke excellent English and helped in every way possible. No negatives whatsoever. If I'm in Athens again this is where I'll be staying.
The location, in a quiet central street; the common premises (lobby, terraces, swimming pool, restaurant, breakfast room, with the exception of the spa which is disappointing) more than the rooms themselves; the professional staff; quality and variety of breakfast; restaurant is good, but too expensive compared with Athens standards. Only one problem, but major: our room was overheated because of the amazing heat coming from the minibar, to the point where the air was almost unbreathable. To be fixed urgently!
Very nice hotel, great location. The room was quite big and the bed was sooo comfortable. I was impressed by the design. They could improve breakfast. It's ok to have the same breakfast everyday but food that should be warm was cold constantly.
Most of the staff was helpful and friendly with only a couple exceptions. Located in a safer/nice side of town that is much more quiet. Atm and money exchange available. Nice pool area and great pool staff but not enough sun chairs/space. The spa wasn't open for all of my four day stay except for one day. The one day they were open they only had massage capabilities available (ie no facials or nail treatments etc) so I went ahead and booked a massage with the only therapist available. I found the male massage therapist to be a bit unprofessional and the massage was oddly touchy. For example it seemed like he was trying to rub his body on the sides of mine while giving my massage. The breakfast buffet is 22 euros and a lot of the food was cold including meat and eggs which is dangerous! All food at this hotel is pretty over priced. No hot tub as advertised? Dirty/moldy between bathroom tiles. If they call a taxi for you the ride is 3 euros more expensive
Proximity was very good as I like this area of city. Wish they had heated pool.
Small , dirty room. Not a 5 star
The hotel was tired. The room and bathroom were not clean. This is not a five star hotel as described by travel sites. The power in the hotel failed in the middle of the night & we had no AC, emergency lighting came on, which is what we woke to at 3am. The house phone was ignored when I attempted to call the front desk to clarify the situation. I called from my mobile & was told 'this happens all the time'. An appalling 'hotel'.
great deco, lovely bar and the resturant food was excellent the sound proofing in the room was very poor and you can hear people's conversation from the corridors.
Due to extensive flight delays we missed the first night of our reservation at St. George and did not arrive in Athens until 6AM. However, we forgot all about our troubles almost immediately after checking into this superb hotel. 1. Without even telling us they upgraded our room to the front side of the hotel which had absolutely incredible views of the Acropolis from our balcony. While it wasn't a large room (they never are in Europe!), it was clean, the bed was great, and the bathroom was perfectly OK. 2. Despite our exhaustion, we dragged ourselves out of bed just in time to catch breakfast. Went up to the 6th floor and was blown away by the 360 views of Athens. We asked if we could just grab a plate of food from the buffet (delicious selection) and take it back down to our room. Not only did they say yes, but they had someone carry our food down to the room ON A SILVER PLATTER. No jokes. Also, without even asking for it they sent with a hot carafe of coffee with STEAMED MILK. 3. On the last leg of our trip, coming back from an island, we had 12 hours to kill in Athens before heading to the airport. Despite no longer being guests for over 7 days they graciously stored our bags and let us hang out at the roof pool until we had to leave. WHAT. 4. Oh, and the pool is like a dream. Gorgeous pool with gorgeous Athens view with lounge chairs and great music. Happy hour is from 7-9 offering 6 euro cocktails. The neighborhood this hotel is in is really great and completely safe as it is where all the embassies are located. Since it's on a hill be prepared to climb! It is worth it as there are very charming buildings, great cafes, shops, and restaurants. You can be in Kolonaki (walking) in 15-20 minutes. There is a metro stop 7 blocks away that goes directly to the airport. WHY WOULD YOU STAY ANYWHERE ELSE? I know I won't be.... Thank you St. George! You made our trip.
Situation and nothing else Very small pool, non-smoking rooms just smoking rooms with apple scent sprayed, tired decoration, lack of porters. Living on its name. Avoid.
The hotel is great, very modern and rooms have a lot of space. The bathroom has a jacuzzi and a shower with many shower options. The bed is very large and confortable. The restaurant on the roof is so wonderful and has a very nice view. Staff has been very kind to us, helping with our luggage that didnt arrive. The relation cost/benefit is perfect.
Very helpful and friendly staff, they were attentive to all our needs and requests. Excellent view of the Acropolis and overall Athens. The restaurant-bar at the top floor is also a wonderful place for dinner or a drink. The boutique room (suite) is very overpriced. Small for its price, and without any distinctive features, apart from the balcony with the beautiful view.
The location The rooms are very small and this was uncomfortable
Nice view from bar / restaurant Very disappointed. No way is this a 5 star hotel. Spa, Sauna, swimming pool etc. close on Marathon weekend. Couldn't care less attitude from staff.
The hotel is in an ideal position to visit the major sites of interest in the city.We were always made most welcome by the staff and the breakfast buffet was very good.
The food and the view from the roof top restaurant were fabulous. The elevator was unusually small and handling luggage was very difficult.
The location was terrific and we enjoyed our room. The beds were very comfortable and the bathroom was sleek, clean and modern. We especially enjoyed breakfast in the Roof Garden with the wonderful view. The staff was friendly and courteous, and the service was very good. Our room was a little small, but this was not a big problem. The marble stairs felt a little dangerous - it might be good to install hand rails on the upper floors.
Excellent location. Cleanliness of room - & everything worked! Staff were knowledgeable & friendly. Very good food, including breakfast. The rooms are on the small side, & also quite noisy at night.
Fabulous views Breakfast was okay, but could be better (would be nice to have fresh juice, more selection)
Excellent hotel, great location, very clean and friendly
Helpful staff. especially John the Concierge, who had good tips on where to eat.
Staff very friendly and accommodating. Room was lovely. Bathroom was very nice, shower was excellent, shampoo/conditioners etc were very good quality as i didn't want to unpack, so just used them. Location is excellent, just around the corner from the Plaka area and very safe. Near the metro also. The Roof Garden bar was lovely although, closes at 11pm. View of Acropolis was lovely from there. Can't find any faults. Probably wouldn't pay the extra againf or a room with a view of Parthegon or Acropolis, as the roof garden made for a nice view anyway. In all, a very nice hotel with lovely staff who come across as genuinely friendly people.
the sights from the room and the restaurant are great
Everything was outstanding
Fabulous views, good location, small but stylishly modern room with all amenities. Lots of traffic noise.
Staff was very friendly. For example, when the manager at the reception learned that it was my wife's birthday, he sent a bottle of red wine and fruits to our room.
very classy, comfortable, elegant the closets need more hangers
Very nice place located in the heart of the city with a good value. The staff was always there to help and made excellent recommendations for our stay. Would've loved to have a single queen bed in stead of two twins but this is not that unusual in Greece.
The rooms are big and the location is great next to shopping and restaurants. Nothing
Good value for money ,excellent location,frienly staff no
Location Street side rooms are very noisy from vehicle traffic
The location of the hotel is perfect, very much in the city center and able to go every where walking. External noises: the isolation of the rooms is not very good and therefore during the night we could hear the external noises.
Comfort of rooms. The soft mattress was appreciated! Also their willingness to accomadate our late check out. Front desk personnel were not particularly friendly in person. Prices for breakfast and laundry service were outrageous. Cost for pressing should of been complimentary since no iron provided in the room.
the location was ideal, our room had a magnificent view & the room was a great size and very comfortable nothing
Location, friendly staff Walls are not well isolated
Location is central and the balcony of our room gave views of Syntagma, the Parliament building and the Parthenon. Short walk to excellent Benaki Museum and roof-top restaurant, Theocharakis Foundation and first-floor cafe, Numismatic Museum (Schliemann's house) and cafe, fashionable Kolonaki and funicular to Mt Lycabettus. Close to Get-on Get-off city tour bus. Handy for shops and restaurants.
it was clean and new Not very near to metro
break fast, friendly staff Man door outside lift, 3 steps to access the room
The bathroom was roomy, clean, and nice. The furniture in the room was all matching and liked nice. Late night check in was a breeze. The bed was extremely hard.
Room, free internet
the room was very big. the breakfast buffet offered a wide range of choice
The view from the rooms is amazing. The service was really good. We consider the hotels' roof garden with it's great view relaxing atmosphere a great place for food and cocktails. It's close to the center of Athens and we had easy access to the metro(Omonia Station). We highly recommend the Bistro next to the lobby for coffee and evening drink. If you visit Athens and you are looking for a pleasant stay,go to Polis Grand Hotel!!!
service value no wi-fi access
Good Hotel, was nice to stay there! Close to the market and metro as well to the city centre.
Breakfast was great Room size good Friendly staff Good wifi
The breakfast and the staff were excellent. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The walls were thin and you could hear your neighbors. The bathroom was very poorly set up. There was no door to the shower so water got all over the floor. If someone was using the toilet and another person opened the door, it would open onto their knees. The toilet paper holder was located in an awkward position behind the toilet...hard to reach. The hotel is located in a rather rough neighborhood.
Personal muy amigable, eficiente y servicial.
close to Metro subway. close to Metro, but bad environment. Too laud to sleep. Window sound insulation is terrible.
The location is great, only 3-4 minutes walk from Omonoia square.The view from the room was amazing, Acropolis and Lycabettus Hill. The bed was very comfortable, and free wireless internet!!! Small thing that isn't worth to mention. The value for money is very hard to beat.
Not sure this hotel is worthy of a 4 star categorisation. Room was very small and the shower inoperable
Polite Reception Stuff. Price! Definetely worn out and shabby, not 4*! Breakfast was of poor choice, and there was too much noice in my room!
Very good hotel facilities, nice roof garden!! Value of money as a four star hotel.
the central position the noise in the room
The roof top terrace and the lobby area with the reading materials. No.
Great value for money, well located close to the Acropolis, nice common areas and pleasant breakfast room. Rooms are well equipped and very clean. Bathroom a bit dated, but very clean. No issues. Room had no view, but for the money, more than acceptable.
The hotel was ideally located, in a quiet area with lots of restaurants nearby and the Acropolis museum metro stop. It also had a rooftop garden and jacuzzi with a stunning view over to the Acropolis,which was ideal for relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Athens. Clean, comfortable and good choice of food at breakfast time. As other customers have already commented, It would have been nicer if the Jacuzzi was free to use (at the moment its costs EUR5 for each 15minutes)
Comfortable room with an excellant view to the acropolis. Quite and nice surrounding with a short walking to the centre of the city.
Very comfortable beds,a great view of the Acropolis,clean rooms.good breakfast buffet no complaints,but rquest a room on the Acropolis side,not the street side.
This is the perfect location for exploring Athens. Safe Street, restaurants and shopping nearby, immediately adjacent to the modern and magnificent Acropolis museum. Staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were very quiet and the rooftop view of the Acropolis is spectacular.
The location of the hotel is great, with easy access to the Acropolis, Acropolis Museum and the Acropolis Metro. Make sure to ask for an outside facing room as some rooms can be small and cramped. The downstairs lobby area is very nice with a good atmosphere to sit and talk or to read/write. Sometimes the rooms can be cramped and dark. Sometimes cab drivers can't locate it, but just tell them to drop you off by the Acropolis Museum and you can navigate it easily.
I have stayed in many hotels around the world and I must say the Herodion was easily one of the best. All the staff were extremely helpful and very professional. The presentation of the hotel felt like 5 stars and the food was amazing. My wife and I have every intention of staying there again should we go back to Athens on holiday. The only minor points that stopped the Herodion getting full marks in every aspect was that the bed in the double room was actually two single beds pushed side by side and the pillows/matress was a little hard.
Firstly location: very close to Acropolis and Plaka district. Almost in front of touristic bus (nbr 400) stop. Then we liked because we asked through the website a room for 1 couple and 1 adult with view and they arranged exactly that. And finally good service and a beautiful terrace facing Acropole, with also 2 jacuzzis. Not really.
Good situated within Athens, but noisy traffic for the front rooms on first floor. Asked for an upgrade to a bigger room and got the answer that all rooms have the same size which wasn't true as we could see by passing some rooms where the door was open. Well, we arranged with it.
Hotel in the centre and rooms as quiet as on the countryside. Price of the breakfast at EUR 20. I don't eat that much to make up for such an elevated price, so I went out for breakfast.
Location was great, very close to Monastiraki Square for lots of shopping and good eats. Staff was very helpful. Would have loved a pool, but knew we weren't getting that when we signed up. Great value. Would stay here again. Would have loved a pool, but oh well! Everything else was great!
the reception is super cute with the mini cooper reception desks and the design of the hotel is very artistic. my room had a batman painting on the wall. not hanging on the wall, ON the wall. well the only thing is that the doors make these weird alarm sounds when u're entering, and the morning of my stay someone's door alarm had gone crazy and i was woken up to have to call the reception to help turn it off.
Over the top design hotel which makes it a different and fun place to stay. Big breakfast buffet. If you have a design hotel (or any hotel for that matter), maintenance ought to be a high priority. Unfortunately this is not so much the case. The room was fine, but the svimmingpool in the basement was really dirty and worn down. Rather a shame.
Nothing The rooms and facilities were not of a 5 star standard as advertised. The surrounding area was not very pleasant.
the food in restaurant the noise in the rooms
Hotel stuff were very reliable, helpful and cheerful. Also, it was a fast-speed internet access in the rooms, that is quite unusual.
The decor was really unique.
Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. Gave us good ideas on where to go for dinner and booked the restaurant for us.The hotel room was very pleasant and trendy. Our wake up call was late by 20 min. I believe there was a confusion from their side and we got the wake up call when the taxi was ordered for.
Wonderful staff and service, lovely breakfast, great location
Nice staff. Amazing breakfast!! quite location. Close to subway and city center. FAST Wifi.Very nice hotel. Elevators are super small.
Fine breakfast, clean room og very kind personal The beds are a bid hard, but it could be me that is to soft ;-)
Position and silence The air conditioning did not work very well
24 hour desk service. Close to train/metro stations. Safe area.
My stay at the hotel was a very pleasant experience,with welcoming and helpful staff,and an excellent room,with all needs catered for. I have already recommended to friends and family.
The staff was very helpful. They help us with luggage storage, info, taxi call, etc.
I have stayed in Athens 15 times in three other hotels and the Alexandros is by far the best in appearance and the qualityof the food.
We stayed 4 nights at this Hotel, Rooms and Bedding always clean, the Food was first class with a very good Breakfast selection and forget about looking for somewhere else to eat in the evenings...there is a great choice available in the "Don Giovanni" restaurant which is cooked to perfection. This Hotel is well worth a visit, Central location 150m. from Metro Station ......I would use this Hotel again and I would recommend it to all.... "Thank You" Hotel Staff for your attentive service. Our room was on the 2nd Floor...... Whilst the room was spotless the decor and carpets are due for an upgrade as they are getting a little tired but for a short stay in a Central location it was acceptable.
Fantastic staff and nice area with great breakfast Smoking!!!!! Allowed everywhere - pretty disgusting. Could even smell it in the no smoking rooms
It is located quite close to 2 metro stations, so you can easily move around. The breakfast was very good as well. The hangers in the wardrobe could barely keep your coat. They were falling as you were touching them. The internet in the evenings was slow sometimes.
small poorly designed bathroom
Fantastic restaurant £40 for breakfast for 2. And we only had cereal!!!
Exceptional hotel and service. The staff went an "extra mile" to make sure that our stay would be great. Thank you!
it was amazing,excellent,very clean
Nice rooms,nice breakfast, helpfull staff, not too big.
Location was good. Expensive for the value.
The design and quality of the room was wonderful.i liked a lot the lighting and the bathroom. i didn't like that instead of a queen bed there were two separated beds and the thing that there was an inside door that was separating my room from the next one,so i could hear the other persons talking.
very good location in the center of Athens
No kettle / coffee maker in room. First room very very small and bed was two singles pushed together. I fell between the two !
The kind staff, cleanliness of the hotel and the design/decor.
The rooms were amazing!!!
Great shower head, and super water pressure. Breakfast was great with view of the ruins. Our room faced a courtyard with trash in it.
Staff was very helpfull and location was great. It needs to be renovated. Room was too small and all furnitures were very old. I had a view of the wall of the next building.
The staff is excellent, and the location is very good. The bathroom is to small.
location, clean, balcony with view over the Acropolis, roof terrace, discount for parking
friendliness of front of house staff. cleaners and breakfast room girl Lack of window screens - thus mosquitos! Shower curtains sticks to us when showering Fridge not cold enough for the contents would be lovely to have medzes offered - even a dip/biscuits on roof - better to eat a little when consuming alcohol!
Close to airport metro link. Rooftop Bar
The area was very near the city center with a great view of the Acropolis. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was on the small side and the breakfast was mediocre at best. Avoid the charge and eat out. Plenty of good places nearby.
Leaving The location. We did not like Athens City at all.
only a 2min walk from the metro. Fabulous view from the rooftop garden/bar of the acropolis. basic but clean and convenient
Roof top patio/bar with excellant view of Acropolis makes staying here a must. This was our 5th visit. Helpful staff, free internet, and convenient location are also major pluses.
It was central and enabled us to access historic sights, shopping and delightfule eating. all good
We stayed only for one night to discover Athens. The hotel's location is great. Nice restaurants are around, city center and metro is very close and easy to reach when you walk. The rooftop bar has a amaizing view to the achropolis!
