  • Across the street from a grassy park
  • Modern rooms with fresh decor, some with balconies

  • Rooftop breakfast terrace with views of the Acropolis
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout

Cons

Bottom Line

A good pick for the price, the Hotel Metropolis is a value hotel with 21 modern rooms, including a few with balconies and Acropolis views. It’s a block away from a popular pedestrian street in central Athens with restaurants and shops and within walking distance to Acropolis and the Parthenon. The hotel has a breakfast terrace with amazing views of the Acropolis, but breakfast isn’t included in the room price. Potential guests may want to compare rates at the Athens Center Square, a trendy mid-range hotel with a rooftop bar and modern rooms.

Scene

Breakfast terrace with amazing views of Acropolis

The Hotel Metropolis is housed in a peach-colored building covered in vines with purple flowers. A bronze statue of a man stands in the front window and faces the street. Inside the hotel is a tight lobby with no seating and a small front desk tucked below the staircase. Guests pile their luggage on the steps while waiting to check in. There's also a tiny elevator that can fit two people at a time. On the roof is the breakfast terrace with tables and chairs where, for a fee, guests can dine on a breakfast of Greek yogurt, fruit, and toasted sandwiches while taking in the amazing views of the Acropolis. 

Location

On busy street, a 10-minute walk to the Parthenon and Acropolis

The hotel is located between other buildings on a busy street near the Church of Metropolis and across from a grassy square with trees. It’s a block away from the busy pedestrian street of Ermou, which has boutiques, cafes, and restaurants. Syntagma Square is within a five-minute walk, and it’s a 10-minute walk to both the Parthenon and the Acropolis. The Athens International Airport is a 30-minute drive or 45-minute metro ride away. 

Rooms

Modern rooms with fresh decor, some have balconies

The rooms at Hotel Metropolis are modern, with white walls and tile floors, but some are tiny. Orange curtains on the windows and gold curtains over the beds add touches of color. Furnishings include sleek white desks and small black nightstands. Some bathrooms are small and have walk-in showers although the bathroom in the top-floor Family Room comes with a tub. All rooms include air-conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, and come with slippers on arrival. Some rooms have small, tile balconies. Past guests recommend requesting a room with views of the Acropolis.

Features

Convenient location, free Wi-Fi, and breakfast available on roof terrace

As a budget hotel, the Metropolis doesn't offer much in the way of amenities. Its convenient location and value rooms are the biggest draws for many guests. That said, the hotel does serve a breakfast for a fee with items such as Greek yogurt and toasted sandwiches, and the breakfast terrace offers amazing views of the Acropolis. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel.
