We loved staying here! The location was great and able to get every where we needed easily. Great shopping very close by. We walked to a lot of places. Rooms are smaller but this didn’t bother us as we weren’t in there but to sleep. They are very clean as well. Great view each morning of The Parthenon from the terrace on top, we enjoyed it while eating breakfast. Front desk was always so very helpful to us. Let us store our bags on check out day until we had to head to the airport. We would stay here again!

Avoid Hotel Metropolis in Athens. The hotel has advertised beautiful pictures of the Acropolis and promises amazing views from the rooms. However, the rooms are crammy and one may have to contort oneself just to catch a glimpse of the world heritage site. The bathrooms are so tiny that would feel claustrophobic in them and the bathing area is too small for a fully grown human. Above all, they charge a tariff which is comparable to much more comfortable hotels in the vicinity.

Dear Ak_Mathew, We would like to thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. It is with great concern to note that you think you were not given the service you expected. Our hotel unlike most in Athens enjoys views to the Acropolis from most of the rooms, the rooms that advertise Acropolis view have full view of the world heritage. We have detailed description of the room size, configuration and of the view. The rooms that don't mention Acropolis view still might have depending on the floor but we do not mention it because as you have well said it is not direct. We would love to have you back in the future and prove that we can serve you better. Sincerely,

The hotel itself is fairly basic. Small, vanilla rooms - much like a Motel 6. The lift (elevator) can only hold a couple of people and their bags. The staff is extremely friendly, the location is great and the view from the terrace is fantastic!

It’s located in a nice location but the room & the toilet are really small. There is only one small& old lift in the hotel with max capacity of 2 persons + 2 luggages. With the similar price, i guess we can get a better hotel on the same street.

Dear Amazingland, We would like to thank you for having chosen to stay with us while Athens. We are a two star city hotel and like most of the hotels in Athens some of our rooms are on the small side and the average stay is 2 days. We are also one of the cheapest if not the cheapest in the area especially on the same street prices are a lot higher. We would love to have you back in our bigger rooms and prove that we can serve you better. Sincerely,
