We have stayed in 4 and 5 star hotels throught our trip to Athens and we had an unfortunate incident with our last reservation and this is how we descovered the Metropolis and realized that we could have saved banch of money.
The hotel is located in maybe the best area just infront there is a square and even from the first floor you have something to gaze at from the balcony. The room is modern, clean and has all the ammenities you will need for your stay. The staff is great, makes you feel welcome all of the time and they don't seem to bother even when you ask them a million questions.
The roof terrace is great for pictures and they serve a delicius breakfast.
We fully reccommend it and when we are back in Athens, this is the place to stay!

We stayed at the Metropolis in August on the way back from the islands. We have chosen this hotel because of its proximity to the bus to the airport and we hit the jackpot.
We never expected a two star hotel would be like this specialy in Athens.
Our room, if i remember correct it was room 402, one of the corner rooms, and we had a balcony where we spent all evening looking at the Acropolis. The room itself was on the small side but had all we needed, clean, modern and with a nice bathroom. Wifi was strong. The staff was super, helpfull, kind and with excellent information and ideas. Breakfast was served on the roof terrace and was at an extra charge but I found it to be the cheapest in the area, greek yogurt with honey and fruits, ham and cheese toast, coffee, marmalade and orange, well woth taking.
This was the best hotel in the entire trip in Greece.

This was my first trip to Athens and I was skeptical of the hotel being 2 stars, but it did not disappoint!

PROS
1. Great, cheap and simple breakfast. Yogurt, honey, toast, coffee and you're on your way! With a view of the Acropolis and church (under construction. Probably forever).
2. Awesome location. Right in the middle of everything. We had a balcony overlooking the back streets.
3. Modern amenities, cold and quiet room, and a decent shower (a little water spills from the tub, but, only a slight annoyance :) )
4. Ithaki BBQ next door was great- very personable and friendly staff, we ate here 4/5 days, and often grabbed cold beers after a days walking. I'm very picky of my Greek food (nothing is better than mom's) but, it was surprisingly tasty!

Negative
1. NONE! Really, for the 5 days we were in Athens, this place was a great home base for the 2 of us. From checkin/out, the friendly staff, WiFi being readily available, and all of the above- I will return here if I can't crash at my cousins place!

Room Tip: We paid for a balcony view, but, I wouldn't really bother. You'll be outside the hotel in th...

We stayed at the Metropolis on the second leg of our Greece trip. We stayed in the "family"room, which simply sleeps 4 (2 double beds). There is a lift which is always a bonus.

The service was impeccable and the gentleman on the desk was always polite and helpful in every way. There is a Taverna just as you walk outside which is great for breakfast, lunch or dinner and at great prices too. One of the guys who works there, George is just a laugh a minute.

The Metropolis is in a great location. A short walk to Syntagma, buses, railway, the Greek Orthodox Cathedral, Plaka, Monastiraki and the Acropolis. I would highly recommend it to anyone staying for a short visit in Athens.

Such a great hotel, the room was superb! Very comfortable bed, nicely decorated, modern bathroom and a balcony overlooking the Acropolis.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and they go the extra mile. The location was great, right in the centre of Athens, walkable to many tourist spots.
I fully reccommend it!

Excellent location, fantastic view from our room, 41, the staff is VERY helpfull and with very good suggestions on things to visit and restaurants, they know Athens really well. The room was beautiful, large, very clean and with super comfortable bed. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace daily with even better view and is worth every cent of the extra 5 euro. After our return from the islands they recognized us from across the street and insisted on keeping our luggage for few hours so we would visit the Plaka and not stay at the airport.
I cannot reccommend this place enough!

Room Tip: Ask for a Superior room, if available, and then you will not complaint if the economy room is small.
