Came to Athens in March for 3 nights, could hardly sleep because our room was too hot, when went to the counter and spoke to the staff telling them we couldn't sleep. They said because it is winter we switch off all AC in the hotel! Really ruined our stay as we weren't having a good nights sleep so ended...

We spent a delight 3 nights here. The rooms were well appointed, the staff was helpful and friendly, the breakfast buffet is excellent, and the restaurant / lounge is top notched. The Plaka is 10 minute walk, the Acropolis is perhaps a 30 minute walk ... so the location is excellent for tourists. The staff speaks English.

We stayed at the Electra Hotel Greece in March 2017. The location was great, bang opposite the Syntagma Square & the Greek Parliament. This means you just have to walk across to reach the main Syntagma Metro Station or to see the Changing of the Guard. The street in front of the hotel is lined with shops selling designer labels....

The reason for giving 4 stars is due to the hotel’s location. It is located in the heart of Athens where all major attractions/shopping are within a walking distance. This is a big plus if you consider the regular strikes regarding transportation. Other than that there is nothing special about the hotel. Descent breakfast, clean rooms but not very spacious...

First time to Greece so I didn't know what to expect. This hotel was a lovely gem. Went with a few friends so this was a great place to meet up. Walking distance to La Plaka and in the midst of some good shopping opportunities. The hotel itself was not bad. Nothing really stand out about the place but it...

I have been this week 3 days in this luxury hotel. It is perfectly located , just 2 blocks from Syntagma square. Rooms are big, luxurious decoration with a modern twist . We had a business meeting and the venue and food were great. Priceless view of Acropolis from rooftop. Definitely a great deal!

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
