Athens Hotel Electra Metropolis

Athens Hotel Electra Metropolis at a Glance:
Chic, modern 5-star with Acropolis views and a fantastic rooftop restaurant. Located at  Mitropoleos 15, Athina (Athens) 105 57, Greece.
Set in the historic heart of Athens, you will feel like a local when you step out onto its lively street, lined with restaurants, cafes, and shops.

We love the obby bar with the stunning art installation by contemporary Greek painter Alekos Fasianos: It shows a unique universe of silver bees soaring in the blue Greek sky, ‘flying’ up the full internal height of the building.

Friendly staff welcomes you from the door men that assist with luggage to the bartender that encourages you to you sample the wine before you get a glass or bottle.

The hotel’s rooftop terrace is a must-experience: with a seasonal outdoor pool, a modern restaurant with a fully-stocked bar, and sweeping views of the Acropolis and city of Athens.

The rooms range from cozy yet well-equipped standard rooms to more lavish  deluxe rooms or suites for picturesque balconies and views of the Acropolis. Plus, the bathroom amenities are from Korres, the top Greek natural cosmetics company. And, the sound-proofing at the Electra is incredible. So while you stay in the heart of it all, a good night’s sleep is guaranteed.

Staying at the Athens Electra Metropolis has been a joy for us and it is a new favorite Inside Europe sight-sleeping hotel in Athens.

The service was incredible thanks to restaurant hosts Maria and Yiannis. We can’t forget to mention the delicious extensive breakfast (included in the room rate). We also highly recommend you return for a fine-dining lunch and dinner here too — as you simply can’t get enough of that close-up view of the Acropolis!!!

Bonus: Our favorite wine bar Heteroclito is just 1.5 blocks away!
