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.

We spend two nights at this centrally located hotel. We loved the fact that you walk out the front door and you are in the middle of all the action. We had a room with a view over Ermou str and could see the bustle...More
The hotel is just on Ermou street and Syntagma square. It is an excellent location. The street is full of fashion shops little cafes and restaurants.

We stayed 3 nights. The location could not be better. Within walking distance of all the main sights. The hotel has a lovely roof terrace with views of the Acropolis and a roof top restaurant. The food is very good. Much much better than local...More
I stayed at room 201 which probably has the worst view (back alley vent), but I didn't go to Athens to stay in my room.
The rooftop restaurant : breakfast was good and dinner was delicious.
Location is great, with nearby shops restaurants and monuments....More
Wonderful. Smack in the right spot! Value for price. Walk 15 min to most places. The Helpful directions from Reception staff and bellboys made my 4 night visit worth it all. Breakfast with Acropolis view. Rooms not near elevator are quiet and preferable over noisy...More

I would use welcome pickup. It costs about the same as a taxi (it’s a fixed price) but the taxi driver will greet you at arrivals and help you with your luggage to the car and give you a bottle of water. He will take you... More
I would use welcome pickup. It costs about the same as a taxi (it’s a fixed price) but the taxi driver will greet you at arrivals and help you with your luggage to the car and give you a bottle of water. He will take you straight to the hotel. Alternatively, you could just get a cab or the airport express bus to Syntagma for around 6 euros (I think it is number 95). If travelling with kids and luggage, welcome pickup is a good option.
Yes, the Electra Hotel rooms have fantastic bathrooms: clean; lots of hot water; shower and deep bathtub with grab bars; good towels; big mirror; shower cap; sewing kit plus safety pins; soap; shampoo; hair dryer.
