My wife and I are leaving Athens in the morning after three nights in Metropolis hotel although the room we were allocated was small but had a lovely vue from the balconey overlooking the Acropolis the room was extremely clean and the staff very helpfully. The hotel is well located within walking distance to all major attractions shops and restorants

Though an older building, the hotel is scrupulously maintained by a courteous and friendly staff. Location is great -- center of Athens, directly across the street from the Metropolitan church, easy walk down the Ermou to Monastiraki Square, with Syntagma Square, Omonia Square, the Plaka and all of the historic sites such as the Acropolis.

My friends and I found this hotel by chance because we had just arrived in Athens and found our original hotel to have split us (we were a group of three) into two separate rooms. Hotel Metropolis as one of the hotels we called, but the lovely guy on night duty, Inder, told us about the availability and promised us... More

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Metropolis for three nights when visiting Athens for business. The rooms are small, but they are clean and neat. The water in the shower was hot. Ours had a side balcony that allowed us to see the Mitropoleos Cathedral across the street. It was a beautiful view. Breakfast was not included in our... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night. The room is beautiful, but very small. The bathroom also is very small. But we were just here to sleep, so it was fine. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is in a great location. It was a very easy walk with our luggage from the Monastiraki metro station. And it... More

This hotel is in an excellent location just near The Plaka and within easy walking distance of The Acropolis. The bedrooms are comfortable and the staff/owners super friendly and helpful. A fridge in the bedroom would have been nice. I would definitely stay there again.

This hotel is a budget hotel and has been updated. It is in a good location in Mitropelous St which runs down from Syntagma Square towards Montasariki. However there is quite a bit of competition. This hotel does not have a fridge in the room or safe. We stayed in an extremely small room at the back. Breakfast is available... More

This hotel is situated just bestide the cathedral (Metropolis), between Zyntagma square and the historic quarters of Placa. Metro at Zyntagma and Monasteraki within walking distance. You also have quite a few of the main sights of Athens within walking distance. The hotel is small and very nice and the staff was helpful. Rooms are good, clean and well equipped.... More

Hotel right in the center of the nicest section of Athens. 90 euro $ room right next to swanky hotel. Very clean. Small rooms and baths but entirely adequate. Clean and modern. Very nice people on the desk, all very helpful. Restaurants and bars all nearby. Rooftop terrace tiny with view of Acropolis. Next time in Athens will stay there... More

We really enjoyed our time at this hotel for the night. Great location with an exceptional view from the rooftop deck where you can get breakfast for 5 Euro. Easy bus x95 from airport to Syntagma Square. Very easy to the main attractions. Room was small, but nicer then expected. I would stay here again
