The location is the main advantage of the hotel. I didn't like the small bathroom in which it was difficult to move.
Convenient location, very comfortable double room for single person! No
location, staff, and enviornment
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
Excellent customer service, modern and spacious room I will definitely come back and stay with Electra.
Location, comfort, cleanliness and value for money
fine location, in the middle of shopping center. breakfast was excellent.staff willing to help. cleaning service was excellent no terrace restaurant
Very convenient location, very comfortable.
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.
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!
Friendly, courteous, helpful staff, great location, clean, attractive facility
Fantastic foyer, great roof top garden restaurant, luxurious.
Location is very nice.
close vicinity to all sights
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?
The hotel as name suggests was very Grand the design was very beautiful
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!
Excellent service, good location, excellent spa & fitness center. Nothing
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.
Loved the elegance of the hotel, service and roof top dining. Nothing, just perfect!
the service and rooms were all exactly as advertised this is truelly a 5 star hotel.
very classy, comfortable, elegant the closets need more hangers
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 rooms are big and the location is great next to shopping and restaurants. Nothing
Good value for money ,excellent location,frienly staff no
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.
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.
the location was ideal, our room had a magnificent view & the room was a great size and very comfortable nothing
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.
Location, friendly staff Walls are not well isolated
small poorly designed bathroom
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.
The kind staff, cleanliness of the hotel and the design/decor.
it was amazing,excellent,very clean
Fantastic restaurant £40 for breakfast for 2. And we only had cereal!!!
The rooms were amazing!!!
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 !
Location was good. Expensive for the value.
Great shower head, and super water pressure. Breakfast was great with view of the ruins. Our room faced a courtyard with trash in it.
Exceptional hotel and service. The staff went an "extra mile" to make sure that our stay would be great. Thank you!
Nice rooms,nice breakfast, helpfull staff, not too big.
The staff is very friendly and helpful. Perfect location. Very clean room + bathroom Breakfast could be improved adding some fresh fruit/vegetables. In my room the wi-fi signal was very weak, but working. Small bathroom
The Internet connection was very comfortable to use. The noise, eraly in the mornings, at about 04:00.
It was a cheap stay for 1 night during transit. The location was great and it was easy to be able to walk to all the sites in Athens downtown (i.e. Syntgama square, Monisteraki market and Plaka). Breakfast was good and starts early. I am a vegetarian and I had few options but plenty like fruits, cereals, bread and some dessert. They have juice, coffee and tea. For meat eaters, they had lots of options like eggs, some cured meats, fish, omelette, etc. The carpets were outdated and looked overused. The bathroom was too small and compact. Had a stuffy smell in the room which I guess was because of old carpet.
Free wi-fi, the friendly personal Very small rooms.
Very close to plaka
Everything was excellent. Good room, clean, airconditioning, movies etc The staff were really helpful. Location wass perfect.
The rooms were maintained to a very high standard, and the housekeeping was spot on. The shower fixture was mounted at waist-height which wasn't the most practical.
Great location and great air conditioning! especially in the 40 degree heat of Athens
The hotel's location is perfect just a few minutes walk from Syntagma Square - bus (Euro3.20) and train (Euro5) from the airport take you there. You are situated within walking distance of all the major tourist sites that you will want to visit. Syntagma is the hub for the Athens transport system which makes it easy to go to all other areas in Athens including the train to Port Pireas if you want to go to one or more of the Islands. A 7 day ticket for all public transport (tram, bus, train) costs Euro10 and is great value. So many places to eat around that part of the city and English is readily spoken. The hotel rooms are typical in European size (small) but a far higher quality than most you experience in Europe - true 3+star rating. Breakfast is good value and provided over a 2.5hrs period. The cleaniness of the hotel was all that you could desire. The only negative feature is a shower designed without side walls or curtain which gets the floor extreamly wet after use - you need all the towels provided to mop up . TV is all Greek with the exception of CNN (there is only so much you can take of CNN!!!) and CH 5 with an English movie accompanied with Greek subtitles each night. Would be the first hotel we would go back to if visiting Athens again. Excellent in value and location. If only the rest of Europe's hotels were like the Amazon.
The staff was excellent & extremely helpful, we were given a room with a view of Acropolis, every day the room was cleaned and the breakfast though basic was ample! The only thing that could be improved is soundproofing in the room as you could ,at times, hear someone moving outside.
Good area near lots of restaurants and major sites. Hotel is very basic with very small rooms. Good to rest and shower but far from luxury. Basic tourist level 2/3 star spot. AC was very good. Towels need an upgrade. Very thin and overused. Bed was very hard and small.
Location, accessibility to public transportation, especially if you need to early check in your morning flight (before 6:00am).
신타그마 광장에서 가까워서.. 관광하기 좋아요~~ 환불안되는 조건으로 아주 저렴하게 숙박해서 좋았어요.. 조식이 나름 먹을만 하고 좋았어요.. 영어 발음이 듣기 어려웠어요.. 무료 인터넷이 된다고 했는데.. 사용할 수가 없었어요..ㅠ.ㅠ
좋은위치, 친절도, 훌륭한 조식 등 모든것이 좋았음. 방이 도로변쪽이였으나 밖의 소음이 전혀 들리지 않았음. 리셉션 직원의 말이 빨라 이해하기 힘든 부분도 있었음. 창밖 소음은 만족하였으나 옆방의 이야기 소리는 늦은밤 간간히 들렸음,
산티그마 광장에서 걸어서 2분. 공항버스 정류장에서 걸어서 1분 거리! 그리스 시위 여파로 깨져있는 호텔 유리창들!
좋은 위치와 깨끗한 내부및 훌륭한 테라스 전망. 욕실 배수시설이 떨어짐.
The fact that its located in the heart of Athens The room for 3 people to stay in was a bit too small. They need to make more big rooms to accomodate 3 and 4 people
Clean room and very close to the heart of the city. great place to stay for a quick vacation trip
This hotel exceeded my expectations. The rooms were modern, clean, and quiet. The bathroom was updated and beautiful. Even the toiletries that were provided were quality. There is a rooftop terrace with a great view of the Acropolis and their sister hotel which is a few blocks away also has a rooftop terrace with a bar with the best view of the Acropolis. The breakfast was included in the price and was by far the best part. There was food to please every nationality of traveler. There was even a gluten free section. I would definitely stay here again if I ever return to Athens. There was some confusion when checking in regarding how many people were staying in the room so make sure you make this information very clear when making the initial reservation.
Good place overall. Central location. Breakfast is fantastic and gets your day started right! Room is a typical small European room, but I found the space adequate. Staff is friendly and helpful, and they gave me some useful tips for things to do. One thing I noticed was a small play area for children, but the hotel seemed to be adults only during my stay. Hotel is tastefully decorated. I was happy with my stay. Bathroom is a typical small European style, and like most Americans, I got water all over when I showered. Also don't open the windows at night or you'll get bit up by mosquitos.
Location extremely convenient. Staff friendly, polite and helpful. Room adequate size and well designed, clean, very clean!. Excellent breakfast, good value for money, we have booked to stay there again. Nothing
Location, breakfast, nice balcony Internet was not working for most of the time. Room needs an update.
centrally located,helpful friendly staff,nice room
The Complimentary wine was excellent as we enjoyed our balcony. The rooms were clean and the lady at the desk was friendly. The grumpy man at the front desk.
Hotel receptionists speak perfect English. The guest services specialist, Eva, was extremely helpful each morning. Breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were very clean, and were updated. Shower was reasonably sized, compared to the majority of Greek hotels. Superior location in north Plaka. Wireless internet is not very good.
The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, esp when I was extremely jet lagged. The room was clean and comfortable. Location was excellent. Wish we could have stayed longer than 24 hours! Typical European room, Spartan and simple. Wifi in Greece weak almost everywhere, so lower your expectations regarding device connectivity, not hotel's fault. Everything was terrific
Quiet room, close to the center of Athens Missing stair rail between ground and next floor
Locaton, Good!! 위치는 훌륭합니다..X95에서 내려서 길건너 5분가량천천히 걸으면 호텔이고 골목 골목이 쇼핑 거리로 이어져 있지요.. But there's one little thing that bothers me.. Because a dark room, a dirty room, a broken-down shower.!!!
청결 깨끗하였고 위치도 좋았음. 호텔비를 현금으로 지급하였는데도 나중에 카드 결제가 이중으로 청구되었음.
야경이 너무 멋지고 산티그마광장과의 접근성이 훌륭합니다. 별로 없습니다.
아테네에 공항버스 x95를 타고 왔기에, 신타그마 광장에서 5분 거리(5분도 안걸렸던것도 같고.. 암튼 매우 가까움)여서 좋았고, 허니문이라고 해서 그랬는지 최고층(9층) 방을 제공 받았는데, 복도를 사이에 두고 화장실쪽과 침실쪽이 살짝 분리되는 느낌도 맘에 들었고, 침대를 지나 발코니로 나가면 리카베투스 언덕도 보이고 아테네 시가지도 내려다 보여서 매우 인상적이었다. (우리는 901호였는데, 902호나 903호였으면 아크로폴리스도 보였을 것 같다. 우리방에서도 살짝 보였음) 아침 조식 때 아크로폴리스가 시원하게 보여서 낭만적이었다. 플라카지구도 가깝고, 가격도 저렴하고, 전체적으로 가격 대비 매우 맘에 들었음. TV가 너무 작았음. 텅 빈 냉장고(물 한 병 없음).
Close to trains and Plaka Staff were not kind nor attentive
Proximity to museum and plaka Internet didn't work TV cable news etc a joke.... The bed a single hard uncomfortable plank Everything for 120$??
Great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar! Only bummer was that the hot tub is not open during the winter.
Rooms were comfortable. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was excellent with lots of selections. The rooftop bar had stunning views of the acropolis. The location was PERFECT! Walking distance to everything you need to see! A little mold in the shower.
the location and breakfast although the breakfast could have changed over a week stay it was difficult to regulate he heat The bathroom was small and he shower was tiny
We stayed for 2 single nights, on both end of our sailing charter out of Athens. The staff was helpful and the location was good for walking to sites like the Acropolis. The room was not fancy, but was clean and the breakfast was good. If you're high enough, and on the street side of the building, you can even get a view of the Acropolis. Great value for a 2 Star.
Cannot beat the location, right off Syntagma Square Functional Very good breakfast Great view from the roof 150 yards from X95 bus to airport Shower head constantly leaked Rental lockers were difficult to access and use No view out window Bathroom and room were cramped Only one outlet available in room In and out of elevator was tough with luggage
The excellent location, close to the parliament square and the subway stations and various shopping and dinning options within walking steps The furnitures inside the room are not function well
central to everything
We loved the hotel Arethusa. It was in a superb location, convenient for every where. The staff were very helpful and the breakfasts were lovely. Very good value for money. The beds were a little hard. Our room had floor to ceiling windows directly opposite an office block about 30 feet away. The windows did not have nets and I am not sure whether we or the office workers were more surprised by our appearances in the nude.
Location is good, close to Metro and bus stop for airport bus Hotel is of one to two star quallity only. Bathroom door cannot be closed, no electric socket, room smelled, toilet was dirty
Excellent location, friendly staff The room needs renovation, especially the furnitures. Room 509 was noisy when the window was open. I didn't like the coffee and the orange juice, the rest of the breakfast was ok.
good location near metro stop, complementary breakfast ok rooms face main street and without AC switched on it was necessary to open windows- very noisy all night long, very small bathroom/shower.
location kind of warm in the room during the day. No A/C in April.
Location Everithing. The olny thing it has, is the location. The rest is unbelievable. The shower broken, no A/C, they didn´t allowed us to take one towel to de beach!!!!, breakfast horrible.
Celebrating a big anniversary with 2 days in Athens before a Mediterranean cruise in July 2016. This was the perfect place to stay and see the city. 50 Euro flat fee for taxi from the airport. 40 Euro taxi fee to the cruise terminal from hotel. Taxi stand was just 25 meters from front door with at least 10 taxis waiting for fares. The hotel was also a short walk to public transit and the Acropolis complex of historic museums and grounds. Restaurants, coffee shops, bars and shopping are all around you. Very safe neighborhood. The breakfast offered an excellent variety of hot and cold meats, eggs, cheeses, pastries, fruit. Fresh squeezed orange juice was excellent. Loved the stylish decor in our room, halls and elevators. Linens were very nice. Friendly helpful staff. It took me a minute to figure out the 5 different valves on our shower and the water wasn't instantly hot when we arrived in early afternoon. Some water leaked out of the shower onto the bathroom floor. No view from our window but I would expect to pay more for that feature. Bar of soap was too small.
Great room, great location, great price. I was knocking on the door at 11 pm and no one would answer. I had no idea that the reception was in another building across the street.
