With its aristocratic appearance and air from a bygone era, the Electra Palace Athens on Navarchou Nikodimou Street in Plaka is a hospitable and elegant hotel in the heart of the city. Its neoclassic architecture and décor harmonize in the most appropriate way with Plaka’s historic buildings, while its marble floors, classic furniture and the interior decoration add to the overall impression of tasteful luxury.
Occupying the fifth floor of the hotel, the Electra Roof Garden projects the same style in a somewhat more casual atmosphere. Here luxury chic is enhanced further by the astounding view of the Acropolis.
Athens always looks more beautiful from up high but at night the illuminated Acropolis is truly magical. Below it, Plaka’s attractive well preserved town houses seem to have been lifted from a unique work of art.
The hotel’s owner, Makis Fokas, along with his partners, the Retsos and Svyriadis families of the Electra Hotels & Resorts Group, recently celebrated his 50th anniversary in the hospitality sector – he has also served as president of the Chamber of Greek Hotels. His three hotels in Athens, the Electra Palace Athens, Electra Athens and the brand new Metropolis Electra, as well as the Electra Palace Thessaloniki and the Electra Palace Rhodes, are points of reference in Greek quality tourism.
“In the course of these 50 years”, Makis Fokas told us, “our primary aim was always to offer our guests an experience of Greek hospitality combined with the highest level of service, while we also place enormous importance on gastronomy, since that is a definitive component in the formation of a guest’s impressions”.
From Kefalonia, the island famous for its natives’ intelligence, eccentricities and passion, Makis Fokas is above all a peer of the hotel realm.
