Hotel was situated in walking distance to everything . The rooftop pool and casual restaurant were fantastic and had amazing view. Beds were comfy and rooms clean. We stayed there 3 nights at beginning of trip and returned for a night at end of 2 week trip. The fine dining restaurant was also excellent and had amazing view of Acropolis....

Location of Hotel is excellent with the main strip of shops right at your doorstep. The room that we were given was disappointing. We even paid for the upgrade to a larger room but there was not much difference at all in comparison to our friends standard room. Also wasn't the cleanest of Hotels that I had stayed in with...

Amazing location. Had connecting family rooms which was much appreciated. Very clean. Breakfast very nice. Had gluten free food specially for my child with Celiac! So thoughtful. (But there was so much at the breakfast that he could eat anyway). Enjoyed the cappuccinos. Ability to use the pools at Electra Palace an awesome amenity. Kids loved to swim after touring....

The only upside to this Hotel is its location, everything else is just average. The hotel staff were hit and miss, some were helpful while others were not. The rooms themselves are surprisingly small, significantly smaller than your average holiday inn room in the US, and we even had a junior suite. Furthermore, the A/C was not able to keep...

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.
