Reviewed 29 August 2017

The location is perfect and the service and quality of the property match the view. We were very impressed with the 5 star quality of the rooms which is a nice surprise for Athens properties. The roof top pool and restaurant is a great place to spend the day and night and the food was great at each location. I will definitely choose this location again on my next visit to Athens

Room Tip: Higher floors give best view of acropolis

We selected this hotel based on the location and price and were very pleased with our overnight stay. Reception staff were very pleasant and accommodating, especially since we arrived early. Our room was large, by European standards, very clean, air conditioned and had an amazing view of the Acropolis. The bathroom included a shower with jets and a rain head! Breakfast on the 5th floor terrace was available for a small fee and was quite adequate.

Room Tip: We requested a room with a view of the Acropolis.

We selected this hotel based on its proximity to public transportation and the sites we wanted to visit during our overnight stay in Athens. Reception staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, our room was large, very clean and comfortable. The shower was amazing! Added bonuses included air conditioning, WiFi and, for a small fee, breakfast on the 5th floor terrace with an amazing view of the Acropolis.

Me and my friends spent few days in Santorini and only had one night to spend in Athens. We have chosen the perfect place to stay, Hotel Metropolis as it is in the best location in Plaka.
We were welcomed by a very charming and friendly Mr. Thomas. After our delayed flight from Santorini we were so tired but we felt good reaching our hotel as we were welcomed in a friendly way and a very beautiful and clean room was waiting for us ... plus with a terrace offering the best view of Acropolis.. wow!!!
The hotel has a very cute but very functional elevator that brought us up to our room on the 5th floor.
The room was perfect with 3 beds for me and my friends, the temperature of the aircon was very good plus the shower was super.
Mr Thomas suggested us the place to eat, it was almost midnight and we wete worried that there will be no decent place to eat, we were so happy as there were around the area and we still managed to have a very good greek food.
The hotel rooms quiet, we had a very good sleep.
This place is the best place to stay not just because of the location but of the very good and accommodating staff plus the comfortable rooms.
Walking distance to restaurants, shops and metro station and in front of the beautiful church, plus you can have a good view of Acropolis from your terrace.
We highly suggest this hotel when you visit Athens. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit.
Thank you Mr Thomas!!!

Perfect location next to the Metropoleos cathedral. Many rooms with Acropolis view. Very good Rooftop breakfast with Acropolis view. Rooms are well appointed, bathrooms recently renewed. Next time in Athens I will definitely stay here.

Room Tip: Here you can get Acropolis view at a fraction of the price at the big hotels.
