Amazing!
We stayed at the Electra Metropolis for one night and wished we’d stayed for more! The rooftop pool was amazing, they provided towels and the water was super cool, perfect to cool down in. The breakfast had so much choice and had a view of the acropolis and the room was large with really comfy beds, we had an amazing nights sleep. All the staff were so helpful and friendly, we couldn’t recommend enough.

8/10 Very good

Poor advertising of amenities, great breakfast
The room was very clean, the breakfast was fantastic, but for a five star hotel some things fell a little short. The air conditioning took multiple hours to finally get to a comfortable temperature, leaving us to go to bed hot and sweaty. Additionally, the primary reason we chose this hotel was because it was advertised via hotels.com that they had an airport shuttle service, which it actually was the hotel just calling you a luxury taxi and then paying a significant additional cost. It would have made more financial sense if I just booked the taxi myself and stayed elsewhere. If I had known, I would have stayed at a another establishment.

Nice hotel, beautiful rooftop views
This was truly a comfortable room and the rooftop views were amazing. We requested a room with a balcony but unfortunately, we only had a view of another hotel so we felt that was a waste of money.

Wonderful stay in Athens with family. Hotel was centrally located. Breakfast included and served at rooftop restaurant overlooking the Acropolis. Pool on rooftop was also great after touring around the city. Highly recommend.

Great place to stay in Athens
Loved this hotel! The staff were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating. I liked that the entire staff wore masks due to COVID (I and my family did as well!) despite Greece lifting mandates; it showed me the hotel cares about their staffs health as well as their guests. We stayed eight days and by the end they knew my name. The rooms were spacious, comfortable, and clean. The hotel was centrally located within walking distance to many sites and local attractions. I felt safe in the area as well. The rooftop has a wonderful view of the Acropolis for your morning breakfast or your evening meal/drinks. There were so many delicious restaurants nearby, as well as a great gelato place across the street. The indoor pool is salt water and felt good on the body. You have to reserve a time due to COVID restrictions (ie limited the number of people in the indoor pool area as it is a smaller area than the outside pool area). We also had a couple of spa services at the hotel spa and wellness center. The staff were so friendly there too. I will definitely stay here again when in Athens!!
