Perfect hotel, the staff was amazing! I didn't remember the name of the guy that welcomed us around midnight but he was so sweet, we were so surprised of such kindness. The breakfast lady was so nice and helpful. I will recommend it to everyone I know. Rooms are very clean, AC, towels, slippers, magnificent roof top with an amazing view of the Acropolis, breakfast so good and very well located. A+++++

Overall rating: 4.5/5 (considering both value for money and comparative prices).

Ok, it's not a fancy place but any reasonable traveler would not expect anything more for prices around €80 per night for a double room (August; we got it via Booking.com): Clean rooms, super helpful and friendly staff, excellent location (we had a car, we returned it in advance since it was really not needed for sightseeing - on top: parking opportunities in the area are really limited; some pay parkings are accessible though).
Metropolis is the best option for a no-frills choice in the heart of Athens: 3 minutes from Syntagma, 5 from Monistiraki, 7 from the Agora (and the Acropolis).
The building itself has seen many springs but everything which is needed is working perfectly: elevator (don't take it for granted in European capitals' old towns!), hot water, AC, WiFi (super signal everywhere).
The location and the view from the terrace might be considered as the main assets of the place but I'd like to underline once more the effort of the staff to make your staying cheap and confortable.

Hotel Metropolis was like heaven on earth after we went to the hostel we had initially booked, and discovered that it was, in brief, inhabitable. When we rang the Hotel Metropolis in a panicked attempt to find elsewhere to stay, the owner told us he could try his best to accommodate us and welcomed us over. Upon arriving at the hotel, we heaved a huge sigh of relief as we were greeted by the very amiable owner. He could only spare us one night stay as the hotel was fully booked but he arranged for us to stay with another hotel just a couple minutes away. We were so thankful for his help, and realised after exploring Athens that the Hotel had an excellent location and was very safe, and after our experience in a dodgy hostel in a rough area of the city, we discovered that Hotel Metropolis was indeed a gem in Athens. Very thankful to the lovely owners! The room was quite small but it was very clean and comfortable.

It is really hard to beat the location of the Metropolis. Right in between Syntogma and Monastiraki. We had the family room on the top floor and the view is just spectacular. The hotel is really small so the guys at the front will remember you and are very friendly.

We stayed for two nights in June and had a lovely light room with super comfy bed. Slept soundly and enjoyed balcony view of the Acropolis and drinks on the roof terrace. The owner very kindly let us leave our baggage for a day while we explored the city....even though we had checked out a week beforehand.
