“Wedding reception”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Athens Metropolitan Hotel made sure that we had our perfect Wedding day on Sunday, January 26th 2014! We received the most positive comments from both our relatives and friends for the amazing ballroom, the exquisite food and most importantly the professional conduct and excellent service of the staff!!!! The suite that the Hotel offered us for our Wedding night was luxurious and with an amazing view of the city. It was an excellent choice and highly recommended to any couple who wishes for a successful and joyous wedding reception!!!

Very friendly and efficient reception. Good size rooms but need upgrading. Adequate but boring buffet style breakfast - the avenue is a nice but expensive restaurant and there are a couple of nice restaurants 5 mins walk from the hotel. 10 mins by taxi to get to syntagma square

nice hotel with good service, breakfast as expected.
Only the carpet in the room should be changed in the future. WLAN in the lobby free of charge. Located directly on a main road, but no distinguishable noise in the room. It's located only 5 minutes walk away from the waterside.

We chose the Metropolitan hotel for our wedding reception in the summer of 2013. Everything was amazing!!!The food, the breathtaking views from the Veranda restaurant (you can see Acropolis in the background), the hotel staff! Everyone was really pleased! At New Year's Eve, we decided to book a room and also try dinner at the Avenue Bistro for the first time! That's such an experience, especially if you like trying different flavours. You must, must, must have dinner there! Needless to say that we couldn't resist and we also went for Valentine's day and we tried the specially designed menu at the Avenue! We can't wait to go back again!

Room Tip: Try the executive rooms for the great view.

Check in was flawless, as was the checkout. They gave me a free late check out, and delayed billing until my meal was invoiced. The lobby coffee shop was good-- food and service. I did an airport/hotel/meeting/hotel/airport trip so I cannot comment on the location but it seems that there is nothing near there.. ( shops). There is a big construction across the street. on the downside.. the rug in the room might have been a bit cleaner. and the tv is from the stone age, but works well. towels are very nice. the big downside for me was breakfast... stale bread, runny scrambled eggs, mushrooms that looked boiled and then some substance thrown on them, very unappetizing.

A great hotel in a brilliant location. Staff were helpful and friendly. Rooms were clean and of good standard. Free WiFi and decent desk and chair were a bonus! Food in the restaurant was lovely and reasonably priced too. Highly recommended, will stay again when I return on business.
