The new Electra Metropolis Hotel
The new Electra Metropolis Hotel is a 5 star hotel situated just a short distance from Syntagma Square. Its great central location and modern styling makes it an ideal choice for families seeking luxury accommodation in the center of Athens.
Formerly the Ministry of Education, the new Electra Metropolis Hotel is one of the newest 5 star hotels in Athens. Boasting a retro-chic design that blends architecture and trailblazing style, the hotel has quickly and justifiably earned a reputation as one of the best in Athens.
The new Electra Metropolis Hotel has 216 elegant rooms and suites to choose from, each one decorated and furnished to the highest standards with marble tiled bathrooms, work desks, huge TVs and laptop sized safes. Room types range from standard rooms to the Acropolis suites – the ultimate accommodation with amazing views onto the Acropolis!
With two restaurants and a rooftop bar, guests can enjoy Mediterranean and fusion cuisine, and the kids will love the unique Atrium lounge area. Some of the other notable amenities in the hotel include an onsite spa and a swimming pool. Please note that children between 3 and 12 years old are only allowed in the spa & wellness area between 9:00 and 14:00 (supervised by an adult). The hotel is famous for its artwork, and you can also see part of the ancient defensive wall of Athens and a 16th century chapel in the building!
After enjoying the complimentary buffet breakfast in the morning, you will find that the main attractions of Athens are only a step away. Visiting the Acropolis is a must-do during your trip of course, as is seeing the Ancient Agora. There is much more to Athens than just these places though, and this guide on things to do in Athens with the kids might be useful. Although most of the attractions are within easy walking distance of the hotel, families with smaller children may want to use the metro system. The station at Syntagma Square is very close by.
Reaching the new Electra Metropolis Hotel is very easy due to its central location, although you may need to make sure that the taxi driver understands that you mean the new Electra hotel! If you would prefer your airport or cruise ship transfer pre-arranged, we can organize a car for you.
The new Electra Metropolis Hotel is a great example of the next generation of 5 star luxury hotels currently being developed in Athens. Suitable for families with kids of all ages, it will provide a memorable experience of your time in the city.
