Great hotel just off Syntagma Square with easy walking distances to all the major historical sites. Very friendly staff and great views from the roof top. Rooms clean and tidy but vary markedly in size. If you are booking as a family there is a risk you will be on very different floors. Good value for money.

We returned from breakfast to find our beds crawling with ants. I reported this to the older gentleman at the desk, and his reply was, "Well, you are checking out, aren't you?" Absolutely unapologetic or concerned. I stated that we were not intending to check out for an hour, so he finally conceded and gave us a room for our...

Good - Modern rooms and facilities, best shower in Greece, good service, stores luggage and good location in the Plaka. Bad - Ants in room, continually swapped us around in our rooms as we stayed for 4 nights we spent every night in a different room. This was just ridiculous. Loud banging at 4am and shouting, some rooms were too...

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.

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.

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....

Staying in Syntagma

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
