It's very good location to anything u need in Athens. Easily accessible from airport and to airport with metro or bus. Also near to acropolis, Olympic ancient stadium and others venue. Booked a bit late, but it's easy to move around with supermarket (bazaar) and mcD around the corner. The downside is toilet a abit small. We only stayed 1 day and managed to get around the top must see places. They even gave us an early check in.

Visited the Metropolis in June and I stayed in a superior double room.
FANTASTIC view from the most comfortable bed of the entire trip, very clean, balcony with table and chairs to enjoy a glass of wine overlooking the Acropolis. Breakfast on the roof was great, toast, juice, yogurt with fruits and bread/jam/butter and the view of course.
The staff is awesome and they will go way out of their way to help.
I had a great time and recommend this place 100%

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view, they are not guaranteed but they will try their best to provide.

My friend and I booked 2 single rooms here a few days before arriving in Athens. We booked through the hotel's own web site, and they send us confirmation by mail.
When we arrived at the hotel, they said that they had seen the booking "a day or two before" but the hotel was full. "We sometimes have a problem with our site about bookings" the owner (?) said. (Eh, well, fix it? And when you know about the problem before we arrive, send a mail?)

The owner had found another hotel for us, he said. But the "new" hotel was too close to the seedy streets around Omonia for comfort., besides the fact that we had booked Metropolis because we wanted to live close to Plaka. The owner called other hotels, and eventually found two rooms in Pan hotel. They did not have balconies, there were no roof terrace, and one of the bathrooms was shoe box size. Nothing wrong with Pan Hotel as such, but not what we wanted.

And the owner didn't even say he was sorry.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experience.

I would firstly like to apologize for any trouble caused.

Booking engines and Online Travel Agencies are software that send automated confirmations, we do not send them ourselves, to the guest and a fax from a fax server to the property, sometimes, rarely, that doesn't happen, this is why we enter every day on the extranet of all our partner sites and check manually, when we realized your bookings we did send mail explaining, please check your spam or junk file, that also is a problem we can not control or fix.

We have made alternative arrangements to a hotel 320 meters from us nowhere close to Omonia square, of the same rating and category as we are obligated to do but I can understand your objections since it was not your choice.

Please accept my apologies again and I hope this incident did not have an impact on your last night in our Country.

Sincerely,

K.Tsiaktanis

For the price you pay, this is a great little place to stay in Athens. It's clean, centrally located and has friendly and helpful staff. Walking distance to all of Athens' amazing attractions and near great shops, restaurants and bars. The rooms are quite small but if you are just looking for somewhere to sleep, shower and store your bags this place is perfect.

Staff is so pleasant that it is a pity. Church works close to the hotel woke us up at 7:30 am. Rooms are small , bathrooms smaller even, and get wet very easily. It could be avoided with some investments. But location is unique,as roof terrace, night & day.

Room Tip: Avoid 1st and 2nd floor to the noise from the street and works.

Hotel was clean, and was new and fresh. Staff was very friendly . The view from some of the balconies and from the roof top terrace is amazing. Beautiful night time view of the acropolis. Room was a little small but not a problem for a short stay. This was a great find and I woul certainly stay there again.
