    We have just got back from the Electra palace with lots of mosquito bites.

    The hotel is right under the flight path, therefore every plane landing into the airport will be heard day and night. The earliest plane I heard coming in in the morning was at 3:30 and the last one coming in for the night was at around 11pm.

    On 2 occasions during our 2 week stay there was a notice on the lift saying out of order.

    Afternoon snacks are available from 4:30pm to 5:15pm. Free.

    Rhodes is a very hot island. It is nice when you are in a bikini lying in the sun but not if you are having a day trip around the island. It is definitely well in the 40's in the summer.

    The pool is good, average to big so never overcrowded although the shallow end is around 1.3 m so not good for children. There is s big baby pool. There is a hot jacazzi. Beach towels are available and you don’t have to get up that early to put towels on sunbeds.

    The beach is very shingly and pebbly, no sand, the sea does get very deep very quickly however if you swim out far enough you will be able to stand up again and touch pure golden sand. Very weird. But it is good for skimming stones. You do also get free sun lounges and umbrellas on the beach.

    There is a kids club for the under 12's with only 2 entertainers, astrid and Bjorn. They are good at their job but there does need to be some more activities as there was only yoga, darts, aquagym, water polo, and beach volleyball. Night entertainment was the worst I have ever seen, either people signing Beatles or abba songs or a traditional Greek dance night or the animation team (boys dressing up as girls) or instruments being played. At 8:30pm there is a mini disco for the kids dancing to songs such as superman, agadoo, kratacus, veo veo, mimic man etc. And there is a kid’s play area.

    The food is not that good. Each night is a selection of food from around the world. So if you don't like Chinese etc there is not a lot to choose from on that night. You can choose a selection of drinks for the meal depending on time of meal (beer, red or white wine, juices, coffee or tea, or fizzy, or water. There is also a Chinese and Italian restaurant that you have to pre book the night before. Men have to wear long trousers to dinner while women can wear short skits. They also do packed lunches if you want to go out.

    Definitely book a suite. It will cost more but there is so much more room and you can separate the room into 2 rooms with a sliding door, so good is someone snores. There is a DVD player in the room so bring some along. You can also hire one from reception for 5 Euros. There is a fridge in the room with a once only fill up of free drinks. But there is a kettle and coffee tea sugar etc that is refilled every day. However I do think that the rooms could be a bit more colourful as ours was white with just 2 very small black + white pictures on the wall.

    A lot of old wrinkly French people came who push in front of you and are very loud and they also take up a whole lounge by playing cards every evening. They really do dress up for every meal with loads of make up and jewellery (mutton dressed as lamb). Not a nice sight

    Reception staff are helpful and there are 2 bell boys that will take up and bring down suitcases

    There is no lifeguard

    There are internet access points that cost 4.50 for 1/2 hour.

    There are lots of stray cats and dogs. We once saw a dog sitting in the pool. Lol

    Pool table (2 Euros a game) and a table tennis table

    Directions: on beach front

    a little train goes around all of the town of ialasos

Loved The Electra Palace, Rhodes...

by A TripAdvisor Member

What a great hotel...The staff are wonderful, the food is gorgeous, plus you get a lot of choice, and last of all its in a great position!

I was in the all-inclusive bracket, which was very good! I admit, you can only get two alcholic drinks at a time, which is a bit rubbish, but i can see were there getting at with that rule. They serve drinks till midnight, which is when the entertainment stops.

At midnight, when the bar is closed in your hotel, i reccomend going to the colibri bar, accros from the main entrance to the hotel. Nikos is the manager, and he is a very nice, understanding person. They close at about 3, and it's a very cheap bar. Try it!

The entertainment is average, but the group that do it, try their best, and they are very nice people, they try and communicate with every person in the hotel. There are activities during the day, at least 5 a day. For Example, Volleyball, Gymnastics, Workout, Cocktail Acitivities, and Killer Pool etc etc...

I have written about a great hotel, i persuade you too try it, i will be going back very very soon, hope to see you there!

Electra Palace Hotel

by reon80 about Electra Palace Hotel

This was my splurge trip--we stayed in this very nice hotel in downtown Athens:) It was fantastic! There were very few guests at the time, it was quiet, they had great food, and you there was the most breathtaking view of the Acropolis from the roof at nite! Highly recommended!

Pistacios and Cafe Freddo with a view

by Callavetta about Hotel Electra Palace

I preface my review of the Hotel Electra Palace by saying that last year the hotel underwent a major refurbishment. I can only think that it must be really wonderful now because it was great in 2000.

We had hoped to stay at the Electra Palace for our entire stay in Athens but were not able to get reservations for the first few days. We did enjoy the lobby bar frequently while we weren't guests. We also discovered and fell in love with the rooftop bar. Not only is there a pretty pool but sitting on the rooftop, munching pistachios and drinking the beverage of my choice while the lights go on the Acropolis is an experience that will stay with me forever!

After a short sidetrip to Meteora and and Delphi, we returned to Athens and were able to check in to the Electra Palace. Our room was such an improvement over the previous hotel (priced and starred the same). Comfortable, airconditioned, and clean, we did not have a view room, but we were very satisfied. The view from the roof was enough for us. The hotel breakfast, included, was fantastic. The buffet included all kinds of fresh fruit as well as a machine that made fresh juice from the orange you deposited into the hopper. Every other type of breakfast items were available as well. This hotel is located right at the edge of the Plakka. It's a perfect location for walking everywhere; to the Plakka, to the Acropolis, the the famous Squares and shopping area.

The staff of the hotel is extremely helpful. We particularly appreciated Aristotle (yes, that is his name!) the barman who entertained us and gave us some great dining tips.

Right in a heart of Athens

by aquatic about Electra Palace

Very nice clean hotel. One pool on top of it, one - in the basement. Sauna. Gym room. Nice breakfast room. Wonderful breakfast!
Service is good, too. But I would say, I would need more expencive clothes to have better service.
Rooms are not big though. Also I could not rid of the smell of a smoke in my room even though I had a room on non smokin floor.

Recently Renovated and Upgraded to 5 Star Category

by deecat about Electra Palace Hotel

When in Thessaloniki, we stayed in the Electra Palace Hotel and loved it.

It was built in 1972, and I learned that it was completely renovated in 2002. When we were there, it was a 4 star hotel; it is now a 5-star hotel.

The architectural style is Bysantine. It is located in and dominates over the Aristotelous Square which is the economical, cultural, and shopping heart of Thessaloniki.

There are 130 rooms and 8 suites that are all decorated in elegant neo-classical style.
The rooms are air-conditioned, have direct dial phones, satellite TV, mini bar, safety deposit box, hair dryer, ISDN connection, voice mail system, and alarm clock. 69 of the rooms have a great and undisturbed view of the lively square and the Thermaikos Gulf.

Non-smoking rooms are available.
The hotel has a coffee shop, English Bar, Mediterranean cuisine restaurant, pool bar and restaurant on the rooftop, health and spa club with an indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, steambath, and massage room. The best thing about this hotel is its location, its excellent restaurant, and the well-equipped rooms.

Oh, yes, I loved being able to have a non-smoking room in Greece!

Great holiday

by A TripAdvisor Member

Lovely week at Electra Palace in September. Very close to beach. Comfortable, well-furnished rooms. Friendly staff created good atmosphere - we felt very welcome.
Excellent food - especially A la Carte Restaurant - all very good. Regards to Harris, Restaurant Manager, who does a fantastic job.
Looking forward to coming again!

Fantastic

by TripAdvisor Member scorcher

I stayed at the Electra Palace hotel for my birthday. Found the place wonderful. Staff friendly enough but not overly (usually when they try too hard it becomes a bit fake!) Food was lovely and a great selection every day. Was actually very sad going home from this holiday - best view from my balcony, could see mainland Turkey over the sea.

Going for the second year running

by A TripAdvisor Member

We enjoyed our holiday at the electra palace so much that my family and I are returning again next week with some friends who we recommended it too without any doubt. The food was excellent and the rooms very clean. Staff very hospitable and the hotel is located practically on the shingle beach and only a short taxi ride from rhodes town. We dont normally return to the same place twice but couldnt resist going again. It cant come quick enough ......

Fab place excellent food great staff

by A TripAdvisor Member

Hi have you ever been to trianda

RE: RE: weather in trianda in may

by SWFC_Fan

I've been to Trianda a couple of times, but not since my early teens.

I stayed at the Electra Palace Hotel (located next to the pebbly beach) which was very nice.

The town was quite big even then, but I'm sure it'll have grown even further since.

Be sure to visit Rhodes Town (the old part of town is really interesting) and Lindos (a great beach and an acropolis) while you're in Rhodes.

Have a great trip!

Hi jonathan

How far was it from trinda to rhodes town?

cheers jade

RE: RE: weather in trianda in may

by SWFC_Fan

Hi again, Jade

It's not very far from Trianda to Rhodes Town.....about 10-15km (a 10 minute drive).

If you've got a map of Rhodes you'll see that Rhodes Town is on the northern tip of the island, while Trianda (shown on some maps as Ialyssos) is on the north west coast.

Lindos is over an hour's drive from Trianda.
