,Electra Palace Hotel, Athens Like all the hotels of the chain, “ELECTRA PALACE HOTEL ATHENS” (5*) was named after Electra, the character of ancient Greek theatre and literature who became a symbol for her love to her father. “ELECTRA PALACE HOTEL ATHENS” is located in Plaka, in the heart of the old town of Athens, only a few minutes away from the Acropolis and the Parthenon (the temple dedicated to Athena, patron goddess of Athens), the new Museum of Acropolis, the representative ancient theatre of Dionysus, Herodion Theatre (hosting significant artistic events every summer) and from a number of important sights of the city. The hotel’s location is particularly privileged compared to other hotels in Athens for another reason: As it is located inside the commercial and business district, one can have a walk for shopping, coffee or entertainment, any time of the day. Access to the hotel from the Eleftherios Venizelos international airport or the port of Piraeus is easy, even with public transport. “ELECTRA PALACE HOTEL ATHENS” was recently expanded, refurbished and fully renovated to reflect the high-class and subtle aesthetics of the old aristocratic neighbourhood which make it stand out among other hotels in Athens. It operates 102 standard rooms 33 of which offer a great view to the Acropolis, 9 Junior Suites, 10 Suites and 1 Presidential Suite. The presidential suite offers a wonderful view to the Acropolis - one of the most beautiful monuments made by man, showcased at night by specially designed lighting – and also comfortable stylish areas, a veranda with a pool, a steam bath, and many other amenities with an attention to detail. Of course, all rooms offer all amenities appropriate to one of the best hotels in Athens, including: soundproof windows, air conditioning, satellite TV, mini bar, electronic safe, direct dialling, internet connection, night and emergency lights, full bathroom equipment (hair dryers, bathrobes, slippers, magnifying mirrors, etc), 24-hour room service and secretarial support services during office hours, in case you are travelling on business. Our guests can also use our business centre and a private garage. Nafs Hotel, Nafpaktos Nafs hotel is an oasis of comfort in one of the most beautiful beaches of Nafpaktos. The panorama of the Corinthian, the Venetian port and the admirable suspension bridge of Rion – Antirion embraces the luxurious shelter that is inspired from the elements of nature: ground, air, fire and water. Just 150m from the Cosmopolitan Venetian port, on the beach of Psani, a breath away from the commercial centre, Nafs hotel offers a remarkable window to the beauty of Nafpaktos an ideal hub for tours and excursions. Inspired from nature, dedicated to hospitality, Nafs hotel constitutes a “small” paradise where your wishes come true. Kyrimai Hotel, Mani The traditional Kyrimai Hotel is situated on the edge of the crystal clear sea in the picturesque little port of Gerolimenas. It offers to its guests a magical journey into the proud past of Mani. The ‘Kyrimai’ Hotel is to be found just a few kilometres from the southernmost point of the Tainaro peninsula, where the Ionian Sea meets the Aegean. On the same latitude as southern Sicily and the straits of Gibraltar, it is a place of unusual beauty with its own distinctive cultural identity and a unique architectural style. The buildings have been restored by the Kyrimis family with particular care and respect for tradition. The original materials, mainly stone and wood, have been used throughout and the whole process of restoration has been carried out in strict accordance with the architecture and geometry of the buildings. The result is unique – a complex of stairways, arches and internal courts situated in a privileged position on the edge of the sea with a view of Gerolimenas natural bay. Grande Bretagne, Nafplio Hotel Grande Bretagne has 20 welcoming rooms and suites that include all the latest facilities, that provide a luxurious, relaxing, and pleasant stay. Our location right in front of the port, in the center of the old town of Nafplion, in Argolis gulf, gives you the opportunity to combine, holidays, sightseeing and work, away from the stress and routine of everyday life. Cotommatae Mansion, Hydra Situated in the centre of the historical town of Hydra, the Cotommatae 1810 Guest House has been opened as a special Boutique Hotel. It is a traditional Hydrian Mansion which over the past four years has been lovingly restored by the descendants of the original owners who have taken great care to retain its character and history. We invite you to travel to Hydra to enjoy a romantic escape in an exceptional house where you will find comfort, relaxation and pleasure on a car-free island. The Cotommatae 1810 Guest House is situated 200m from the port from where you can take sea taxis for excursions to the islands beaches and coves. Cafes, restaurants and bars are all within easy reach on foot. The Mansion stands in a quiet, privileged district, within the protected privacy of its own lofty stone walls. There are courtyards, a garden and a splendid veranda from which extensive views can be enjoyed.
