Reviewed 26 September 2013

My sister and I booked a superior room and I can really recommend that. For European standards it's really a spacious room, which comes with a very long balcony.
The roof terrace offered an excellent view of the Akropolis, but ofcourse you should be outside and visit it.
Metropolis Hotel offers an excellent location. All the special sights and historical buildings are within walking distance, as are all the nice terraces/restaurants/shops.
The staff was great aswell, everyone without exception was friendly and helpfull. Inder really helped us out where to go and how to get there. He also made our stay very positive with his friendliness and pleasant conversation.
Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Book a superior room, and if you really 'need' the best view, ask one on the front.

The father and son who run the hotel are attentive, smart, and very funny! The room we had was a budget one and it was clean and quiet. Location was convenient to historical sites and restaurants and felt very safe.

The hotel is very well located right in the middle of everything shopping, sites or restaurants, everything is a few steps.
The hotel has limited common areas but the roof terrace offers fantastic views of the Acropolis.
The room had a balcony were we could enjoy and evening cup gazing at the Parthenon, super!, the beds were very comfortable and everything was modern and very clean.
Breakfast is served on the roof terrace at an extra cost of 5 euro and is delicious.
The staff also provided good information on things to visit and places for a dink or dinner.
Our experience was excellent and will recommend this place to everyone.

The hotel lived up to my expectations.
The location is super, close to everything and no need to use any transportation, Acropolis is just 15 minutes walk.
The service is like you are the owner of the hotel.
The room although a little small ( I did book the standard so no complaints there ) was very nice, clean and furnished with excellent taste, the bed was very comfortable, better than the one at home. Breakfast was extra on the roof and the view was indeed brilliant.

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.
