“Family-owned hotel with wonderful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2011

We were originally trying to book into the Phaedra, another small hotel in a good central Athens location. It was full , so we've never stayed there and can't compare the two. However, we were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of the Metropolis, our "second choice" accommodation. The location, on the street of the same name (or Mitropoleos) and half way between Syntagma (Syndagma) and Monastiraki Squares, was ideal, across from the old cathedral, with many small local restaurants nearby and in easy walking distance to the Greek Agora and Roman Forum, Hadrian's Library, the Acropolis, the New Acropolis Museum, and so on. The rooms were basic (80 euro/night for a double), clean and adequate, and ours had a window opening onto the street and the cathedral, and the breakfast was standard, for an additional 5 euro/person. Besides the friendly Tsiaktanis family, one of the highlights of this hotel is the gorgeous bougainvillea that covers the front of the hotel. Not only could we see the Acropolis from our hotel, we could pick out our hotel, by the bright pink bougainvillea, from the top of the Acropolis!

Room Tip: We like being in a room with a street view, but that does add some noise. You can request a non-str...

Great litle hotel in Plaka, 10 minutes walk to all the POI.
Room was comfortable and clean, our room had a view to the Parthenon and a balcony.
Staff was welcoming and friendly and gave us all the information we needed for the city.
They had open parking for our car just outside the reception.
We loved the hotel and we definately reccommend it.

Room Tip: When you book ask for a room with a view

Very nice hotel at reasonable rates right in the middle of things.
My room had view to the Acropolis and a balcony with table and chairs.
Room was comfortable and clean. The location is the BEST for sightseeing and shopping.
Staff was always available and helpful.

Room Tip: The higher the better view

Nice hotel maybe in the best location.
Rooms are nice and comfortable we had one on the 3rd floor and it had great view to the Acropolis so I guess higher up you would get even better view.
Breakfast served on the roof top at an extra 5 euro but well worth it.
Staff is available 24 hours and are very helpfull.

Perfect for a night or 2 in Athens before heading to the islands. We had a large balcony with a great view of the Acropolis. Grab a gyro from the restaurant next door.
