With its cobbled street and neoclassical mansions, Plaka maintains the feel of a village within the bustling metropolis of the Greek capital. The Electra Palace is the ideal base from which to explore the city, with commanding views of the it’s biggest star, the Acropolis.

The hotel has maintained its classic architecture and design, with its rooms and suites featuring handmade carpets and marble bathrooms that reflect Plaka’s aristocratic history. Some come with their own balcony and views of the Acropolis or the peaceful gardens.

With a panorama so spectacular, you’ll want to head up to the rooftop where you can take a dip in the outdoor pool and enjoy a drink and snack from the pool bar. As evening falls, take a seat at the rooftop restaurant to enjoy original interpretations of classic Greek dishes while looking out across the twinkling lights of the city.

Motivo restaurant is all about celebrating Greece’s natural larder with tomatoes from Santorini, olives from Kalamata and goat’s cheese from Larissa, all enjoyed in the shade of the hotel’s secluded garden. The British-style Duck Tail bar is the perfect place for a glass of wine or cocktail from the extensive drinks list.

For when you need to relax and unwind, head to the gym and spa with indoor pool, Jacuzzi, and steam room.
