Profile: Plaka

Profile: Plaka

Plaka is built on the site of the ancient city of Athens, nestled on the slopes of the mighty Acropolis hill, from which it gets its nickname—“Neighborhood of the Gods.” Its rich heritage is chronicled in its many museums, including those dedicated to Greek folk art, music, and Jewish culture.

Plaka’s most modern draw is the Acropolis Museum, which opened in 2009. This award-winning institution houses over 4,000 objects from the archaeological site of the Acropolis of Athens. The site itself can be viewed in places through transparent floors, giving visitors a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse of the ongoing excavations.

    Great location and amazing staff

    Electra Palace is a nice hotel in a very central location in Athens. Good breakfast and the view from the 8 th floor terrace was breathtaking and amazingly beautiful. The staff was very friendly and professional. Some of the negatives of this hotel is the size of the bathroom and the actual room itself, which were very small and felt cramped.. Also the walls must be very thin because I heard loud noises from the next room at night and cigarette smoke which was very uncomfortable. I asked to change rooms but they were fully booked, I stayed for 8 days here and I enjoyed Exploring Athens.

    Hotel review.

    Hotel had a great location. Walkable to any area. Libby was nice roof top restaurant was great for breakfast. Very clean. Rooms are small. Sofia at customer relationship was amazing. She made this hotel like 5 star. Great suggestion and she was so helpful trying to help us with some travel plan change. She even tried to reach us and inform us of outcome through different sources when our cell was not available. Just make sure you ask for rooms which is not close to hotels air conditions system. We had to change the room so noisy next to it.

    Happy Guest

    The Electra Palace Athens is an elegant hotel in a perfect location. Everything is within walking distance. The staff are extremely attentive to guests. We had an early checkout- 5:30 am - and were given a breakfast box which was a lovely touch. The restaurant and bar have magnificent views of the Acropolis, the food outstanding.

    Superlative. Service was incredibly friendly but also effective. Acrópolis view from our room was spectacular, as well as from the breakfast room (rooftop terrace ). This hotel was a total winner.
