Waking up to a sweeping view of Athens looking across Monastiraki and plaka with the towering Acropolis at the background became the perfect setting to start our day in Greece. Despite our late checkin earlier today (2am), Metropolis hotel was kind enough to accommodate our request to reserve a room facing the Acropolis. Apparently, we were told by the night... More

A nice hotel in the center of Athens.The room was comfortable,clean and recently renovated internally.The staff was polite and helpful.The only problem was the outside and inside noise.Great view of the Acropolis from the small balcony of room and from the roof terrace. I would definitely stay here again.

A very nice hotel, with a beautiful view upon the Acropolis. A good quality/price ratio. A kind welcome and a good service. Ideal to visit the capital of Greece, specially the Acropolis and its surroundings.

Stayed here for one night en-route to Istanbul. Great little find. Absolutely smack bang in the city. Best way to get to it by train/metro is Syntagma station and it's a 10min stroll. Location wise, fantastic. Close to everything. Shops, bars and cafes. Great spot. Hotel room is clean and comfortable. All you need for a no fuss accommodation. There's... More

Ideal location for exploring the center of Athens. The staff was polite and helpful, the room was small but ok and had an excellent balcony with view of Acropolis. The elevator was rather noisy and it was difficult to sleep after 7am. The cleanness of the room was ok except the shower curtain and the iron shelf for the towels.... More

We spent three nights here while in Athens. The room was a good size; however, the bathroom left a lot to be desired. Normally I don't care about the bathroom size or look, but this was something special. The shower was so small and got the entire bathroom wet. The curtain rod was literally over the toilet and attached to... More

The location of the Metrpolis is excellent, close to the Metro and all the historical sites. The hotel family staff were most helpful, cheerfu, and humorous. The room was comfortable, clean, with a good bathroom. Breakfast is on the roof with a grand view of the Acropolis and the Greek Othodox cathedral.

Staying in Syntagma

Neighborhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
