The Electra Metropolis Hotel is a part of modern-day Athens, one of the essential places to visit in Greece. It is a bridge between the city’s glorious history, lively present and promising future.
The “Electra Metropolis" is situated at the beginning of Mitropoleos Street next to Syntagma Square, the most famous square in Greece, and has been welcoming business travellers and holiday makers to Athens since September 2016. This Athens luxury lifestyle hotel is near many Athens tourist attractions and other places to visit in Athens, Greece.
The building was designed by the famous architect Patroklos Karantinos and was, for many years, home to the Ministry of Education. However, it has now been transformed into one of the best hotels in Athens, and this enticing example of Retro Chic style has made its mark on modern Athens and is now a trailblazing example of today’s interior architecture and design!
The public areas of the hotel are graced by two unique works of art. The first is a unique work by the Greek painter Alekos Fasianos showing silver bees soaring in the blue Greek sky, and the other is a composition of worked marble plaques - albeit a composition that tests the limits of artistic projects. Furthermore, the basement of the building houses its own remarkable cultural attraction - the remains of the famous Themistoclean Wall which surrounded ancient Athens. Finally, on the ground floor, the 16th century Agia Dynami chapel is literally right part of the hotel building.
