My husband and I spent 4 days at hotel Metropolis in the middle of September, on our way to Hydra, and we could not have chosen a better place to stay for our days in Athens! The hotel is very well located in a pleasant street between Plaka and the Syntagma square, and with easy walking distance to Acropolis, the... More

Checked in yesterday in a single room on the fourth floor, compact but clean and bright, and equipped with everything I needed but the best feature of the room was the balcony and the view to the Acropolis, woke up this morning after a very comfortable sleep ( the beds are the...

The front desk staff were extremely personable and helpful. They always had a smile and gave us some great tips. The rooftop view of the Acropolis is amazing and wonderful to view while having breakfast. The room was small, but had all the modern amenities. The location is right in the heart of The Plaka so noise from restaurants outside... More

The location, the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff, the view from the roof at breakfast, all of these made the Metropolis a very good choice for a quick overnight before heading to the airport the next day. We were given a tiny room, and they did say the next morning that room would be better for some young student... More

The hotel Metropolis Hotel was a basic hotel in the centre of Athens, nothing remarkable about this place. The rooms were clean if not basic. Everything worked well in the room include shower and toilet facilities. Wi-fi was strong in the room and we got a very good signal... On the negative side our room was noisy, next to the... More

Right in the center of it all. Excellent location. Room was clean and the porch had an amazing view. The front desk people were super helpful and guided us to everything we needed. For as many people as there were staying we heard veryblittle and slept very well. Highly recommended!

Hotel Metropolis has very helpful staff who are keen for you to enjoy all Athens has to offer. Rooms are simple and clean with a fantastic view of the Parthenon. Enjoy sunrise and sunset on the roof top.

Metropolis is clean, cheap and centrally located. 5 minutes from the Plaka or Syntagma Square or Ermou shopping district. Close to the Acropolis - you are where you need to for sights and nightlife. Beds are comfortable you get a lift. We had room 35. Very small. The shower is the same space as the toilet. Hey, if you are... More

This hotel is well positioned on Metropolous st in the Plaka area.... One street over (parallel) from a major shopping st, 15 min walk to the acropolis and other significantly historical sites & 5 minute walk to the flea markets. Multiple restaurants surround this area so it's not hard to find a good one (I recommend the Athinaikon merely 200m... More
