Metropolitan Hotel Athens is great for business. Its location, a short taxi ride either to downtown Athens or Piraeus gives the flexibility needed for visiting clients etc. There’s a shuttle up to Sytagma Square for the essential tourism which places you conveniently for the main sights and night life. Taxis aren’t expensive so moving around Athens is not a problem. The rooms are adequate, have everything you need (except coffee/tea facilities..shame.) And are reasonable. I visited on a ‘room only’ deal but the breakfast buffet looked good and was obviously enjoyed by many. The lounge snack bar offers gigantic club sandwiches, salads, soups etc along with the teas, coffees, and drinks you’d expect. About 15 euro for a salad but it’s a good one! Coke 4.50 euro. There’s a ‘business centre’ (a computer in a quiet room) for which you pay, except when you want to simply check into a flight on line and print your boarding pass. The rooftop pool has a lovely view and enough room for a dip and a burn in comfort! Staff are all extremely helpful and courteous. Only complaint must be the mini bar prices which irritate to the point of buying elsewhere. 5 eu for a coke, 9 eu for a miniature scotch, 4.50 eu for mineral water. Laughable. I am convinced that lower minibar prices would encourage consumption to an extent that more profit would be the result. Good hotel, hope to stay there again.
