Our company organized a meeting 29-31oct , 2013 , had no time earlier to say a great- great t h a n k s !! for the hotel’s e n t i r e staff for all the support given to me , as head of organizers and to my clients. The hotel is very well located in city can be reached easily from all parts of Athens by taxi or by buses for the conference participants. Rooms a bit outdated , but clean and they are in very good condition. The Aegean conference room is a gem ! - very nice decorated , very unique to prepare here a conference or a gala dinner. There is a direct connection to an open air area ,a part of the room has large windows for natural light. But above all ---- the main advantage of the hotel is the human part, from its employees ! Very rare in today’s world. From the beggining of our preparation of our 157 member group till we left the hotel after the event, I personally , and all our clients received a very warm and professional welcome and help in all fields and areas of the hotel. This is the greatest advantage and value of the hotel. All the events in the ,,backstage,, preparation was really professional all collegues knew what to do in different , urgent ad hoc situations – it shows professionalizm on high end. To give some light neagtive but , I think , important points: in the lobby area opposite to the cashier a bunch of flower was in a really bad condition, after 10 days it was a bit annoying , seemed that hotel is not taking care of the smallest detail , as all guests faced every day , every minute with that withered flowers in the pots. For me , it gave the feeling , if hotel is not helping on this matter , how they manage inside the hotel? The other thing was on the rooftop area as we organized a welcome dinner for the group , but the windows of the terrace was not cleaned for a long time….this is a small , but important part of the overall condition of a dinner… The dinner was excellent , the atmosphere was very nice and in the evening everybody looks through the windows the evening , the lighted sights of the city of Athens and the port of Pireus… so cannot avoid getting a negative impression of the windows…
Anyway , all the members of the conference enjoyed the stay in the hotel , as we will have event in Athens , we will choose Metropolitan hotel again for our congress event. Hope that hotel will improve continously and will keep its best colleagues in this hotel.
Overall : hotel suggested for conferencies and also private stays who prefer to be between the center of Athens and Pireus.
