With such central location, the Electra Palace Athens Hotel provides families with an ideal base whilst staying in Athens. Within the attractive neo-classical building are all the services and amenities you would expect from a 5 star hotel to make your stay a comfortable and enjoyable one. Whether using the spa facilities, savouring a meal on the rooftop terrace with views to the Acropolis, or using the pool and sauna, you will be guaranteed of a memorable stay.
Electra Palace Athens Hotel has 155 rooms to choose from, which include classic rooms and suites. Triple rooms are available for families who would prefer kids stay in the same room. With a complimentary breakfast in the morning to get the day off to a good start, the hotel also has two restaurants, indoor and outdoor pools, spa, fitness center, and babysitting services (on request). Please note that children under 17 years old are allowed to use the indoor pool & facilities until 14:00 daily.
Electra Palace Athens Hotel is easily reached from both the airport and the port at Piraeus. Taxi prices from the airport have a set rate, and so you can simply take a cab on arrival. For the ultimate in smooth transfers though, we can arrange a private car for you. Due to its central location, it is easy to reach most attractions on foot from the Electra Palace. Families with younger kids may want to make use of the clean and efficient metro system, with the nearest station being just a short walk away.
Location is everything they say, and the Electra Palace is within easy walking distance of most of the significant attractions in Athens. Visit the Acropolis in the morning before the heat of the day, the Acropolis museum after, and then stroll around some of Plaka before checking out the Ancient Agora and Temple of Zeus.

We also provide a number of other family tours and activities in and around Athens. One tour that we highly recommend, is to see the sunset at the Temple of Poseidon at Sounio. You can even have a Stargazing Experience there. More active families might want to really get into the spirit of things and try the Olympic Games Workout.
In our opinion, Electra Palace Athens Hotel is a great hotel for families with kids aged 7 and higher. Situated in a vibrant area of Athens, and surrounded by things to see and do, it is perfect for families who want to experience both the historic and contemporary sides of this fascinating city.
