A dapper-looking man in uniform greeted us with a big smile as soon as our car pulled up at the Electra Metropolis Hotel. That smile made me forget the crammed airline seat I was subjected to for about seven hours.
A smooth check-in and in no time I was inside my beautiful suite of the Electra Metropolis Hotel that left me speechless with its view of the stunning Acropolis. I knew bythis time that it would be a great trip.
Electra Metropolis is a 216-room hotel located on the central Metropolis street of Athens. A relatively new five star hotel, it has a contemporary design with all modern amenities. At the same time it reflects the culture and rich history of the city with its retro chic design. The hotel's central location meant we could walk to all the major sites, shopping areas, cafes and even night clubs! It is at a stone's throw from the old town of Plaka and Monastriki.
A bottle of rose welcomed us to our Acropolis suite located on the eight floor. The expansive suite offered panoramic view of the beautiful city and its main attraction- the Acropolis. It had a spacious living room, elegantly done bedroom and two bathrooms. I spent considerable time in my suite, because that's just how good it was and despite waking up to the view of the Acropolis, I could never have enough of it.
