The “Electra Metropolis" is a 5 star hotel in the heart of the city

Strategically located at the beginning of Mitropoleos street, the hotel is only a stone’s throw away from Syntagma square, the center of Athenian life with the eponymous Metro station. It is also next to Ermou street, the principal shopping street of Athens – but also adjacent to the new capital food district of Athens, with irresistible gastronomy propositions waiting tο be savored.

In the vicinity and at walking distance visitors can find the posh Kolonaki neighborhood as well as the traditional neighborhood of Plaka, leisurely resting at the foothills of the Acropolis. Guests are spoiled for choice, with museums, shops, cafes and dining options available at an impressive density.

Electra Metropolis Hotel bridges a glorious past with an exciting future, in a rare mix of timeless modernity. It is brimming with character and attention to detail, while boasting architectural, design and artistic elements that stand out.
An architectural landmark and a destination in its own right, the building was designed by the famous architect Patroclos Karantinos and constitutes a fine exemplar of Greek modernism with local eclectic references. During the conversion of the building into a hotel, the original spirit of the creation was kept intact giving life to a retro chic beacon that shines bright.

And there is more to the artistic vibes. Two one-off creations dominate the scenery: the first being an installation of silver bees against the bright Athenian sky by the famous Greek artist Alekos Fasianos, the second a composition of marble pieces worked in different techniques so as to create a captivating result that transcends time.

But surprises do not end there. In the building’s foundations visitors can admire the ruins of Themistocles’ Wall, the prime defense measure of Classical Era Athens. Literally on the top of that, there is also the 16th century chapel of Agia Dynami, embedded in the structure of the building in a extraordinary entwine.

The scene is set for a truly memorable stay. The hotel has total of 216 fully equipped, stylish rooms and suites, each with full WiFi access and its own Smart LED TV. Advanced sound proofing and air-conditioning create the ideal ambience, but what will take your breath away is the view to the Acropolis from some of the rooms or the roof garden.
