Very friendly, helpful staff. Great location if you are looking to site see and be in the centre of Athens. Room a bit small and water hard to keep within the shower basin, but beautiful view from the rooftop patio, and even from the balcony. Overall, exceeded my expectations.

I didn't expect much when I booked a two star hotel in the center of Athens that promised a view of Acropolis. How wrong I was!!! Walked into the hotel knowing it is a budget two star hotel and I had an attitude that I know regret:(
The room was on the 3rd floor, there is a lift, so taking the luggage was not a problem.
The room was bright, very clean, modern decoration and THE most comfortable bed EVER!!! Modern bathroom from where we could also see the Acropolis as well as from the balcony and I was now starting having doubts about the price, I checked with reception and yep they verified the price and I kept having concerns on where the catch is...
In the evening we were given directions and a rough guide on what to do, in which order, where to have dinner and they were all great suggestions, the staff was super, we have met Kosta, Thoma ( father and son ) and Ender ( night shift ) very polite and we felt welcomed all the time of our three day stay.
Breakfast is served on the roof and is worth taking, from the roof you have full view of the Acropolis.
After check out they kept our luggage for another 6 hours!
We had a great stay and we are already recommending the hotel to anyone we know going to Athens.

Being so close to the Acropolis and the Metro is a great location for seeing the Athens sights. The Metro means easy access from the Airport and its just a short 5 minute walk to the hotel.
The rooms are compact but recently renovated to a good standard. The lift is small but efficient.
The breakfast is served on the roof top which has the best view of Acropolis. We found all the staff really helpful and we were very pleased with the service. If we were in Athens again we would certainly choose this hotel.

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...
