We stayed at the Metropolis twice during our time in Greece. Both of the rooms we stayed in were smallish, but clean and with partial views of the acropolis. Couldn't ask for anything more for the price. The best part about this place is the location: close to Plaka, Monastiraki and Syntagma. All the tourist sites were walkable from this location.It was very easy to walk a few blocks to Syntagma to catch the x95 airport express bus.
It's true, there is no lounge, just a reception desk. But the owners were helpful to us, storing our luggage while we took an overnight trip to delphi, and finding out bus schedules and other travel logistics.
Definitely not a luxury hotel, but good value for the center of Athens and more than met our needs.
