History in Facts

Our Story

The beginning of our journey can be traced back to 1965, when a small band of visionary Greeks breathed life into the first hotel of the chain, the now classic Electra on Ermou street. The hotel and what it stood for was immediately embraced by discerning local and global travelers alike, paving the way for what was to be a success story that spans more than half a century and includes 6 standalone hotels – and counting.
