The personnel, location, and view made this stay worthwhile. Close to Hop on Hop off bus stop, restaurants, and shopping. It was clean and comfortable. Only negative was the need to climb steps to reach the extremely small elevator to take bags to your room.

This hotel is situated only a few minutes walk away from Syntagma square. It is close to the Plaka and within walking distance of most of the central sights and museums. However, taxis are cheap and plentiful and we used them a lot. The double room is small, and the entrance lobby is very small but the hotel is comfortable... More

We picked this hotel as a "stopping off place" between flights on our way to Greek Islands. I will say that the location was very good (within close proximity to shopping, dining and general attractions within the city of Athens. However, if I were staying any longer than one night, I would pick another. The staff was VERY friendly and... More

Nothing was too much trouble, fixed my wife's walking stick, very pleasant people. Room was a little small, especially when you put two cases in the room. I expected a small room, but the view of the Acropolis from the window was spectacular, especially at night. Our short stay was great, great area for restaurants and nightlife.

We upgraded to the 5th floor and had a gorgeous balcony with a view of the Acopolis, beautifully spacious room, very clean and the staff were more than helpful. We have re-booked for when we return to Athens in a weeks time and are looking forward to it. Great location with some great eating places close by. Great value for... More

Metropolis Hotel is in a fantastic location on the doorstep of good restaurants, bars & supermarkets halfway between Syntagama (3 min walk from X95 airport bus stop) and Monastiraki Squares and easy to get to the Acropolis and Ancient Agora. The staff, especially the young guy on night duty each night were very helpful. However our room (no. 45) was... More

I just spent 2 nights here before heading back to the states. Though I was not expecting the Ritz, I found the room to be extremely loud. I was kept up all night both nights due to doors opening and closing, chairs scooting on the floor above me. Someone was vacuuming at 11:30 at night and the tiny elevator was... More

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.
