You can't fault the location of this hotel. Walking distance to all major tourist attractions in Athens and also lots of restaurants and shops close by. Staff were friendly and our room had a lovely view of the acropolis. Rooms were very simple but adequate for our one night stay. Shower was amazing! Nice and close to airport bus which...

Great family run hotel! Fantastic location, less than 5minute walk to syntagma and also monastiraki. Street of hotel (metropolis) runs parallel to the popular shopping street of ermou! Rooms are small but that is what is expected in Athens! Also great view of the acropolis on the rooftop

Great little hotel in the middle of Plaka within walking distance of "everything". Whith view over the Acropolis. As to be expected it's an old hotel so the rooms (and the lift) are small (6' tall people beware! lol) but it is fully refurbished as new inside the room with a fantastic all directional shower. The owner/manager and his dad...

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Metropolis. The hotel location was great, close walking distance to all attractions. Lots of great restaurants close by as well. The room we got was very small, but knew that going into it. We were also told by booking.com that it came with a balcony, but did not receive one when we arrived....

This is a sweet little hotel walking distance to acropolis, old plaka, restaurants, and shopping if you're into that. The rooms, although smallish, are very clean and bright. On a fairly quiet street so not alot of road noise. The breakfast is outdoors on the top of the building with great views. The breakfast is 8 euros and is kind...

This hotel had some great reviews, and it was ok, but from the reviews and the photos, it was not what I was expecting, so I will try and describe it truthfully. The Hotel is small with no proper reception area, I was expecting a larger hotel for some reason. When we arrived, there was a mistake with the booking,...

The hotel is clean, comfortable and friendly staff. The rooms are small but they are in most cities and for the price €320 for 4 nights per couple it was good value. The other hotels in the area were much more expensive. It's very close to all the main tourist attractions and loads of bars and restaurants. The bar next...

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament building on its upper side and surrounded by other large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents, bookshops and fashion shops, especially on Ermou Street. Just south of Syntagma Square, you can take a breather in the lush National Gardens, which extend into the grounds of the Zappeio palace and beyond to the ancient Temple of Olympian Zeus.
