Visiting a big Greek wedding

A travel blog entry by mozgasban

Some background information:
It happened, that my girlfriend's university classmate/friend (a Taiwanese) got engaged with a Greek guy who was also her classmate. We got the invitation for their wedding in Athene, as well as 30 other classmates of my girlfriend. Fortunately I met most of them, so it was nice to meet these international group of …

Day 11

Today we went to Delphi, and visited the Monastery of Osios Loukas.

It's hard to stay enthused about looking at ruins for two weeks... that being said, it was still an amazing, once in a lifetime experience. We got to view several ancient columns, a temple of Apollo and a raceway. As we hiked up the mountain I quickly understood why the Grecians were athletic and related gods to nature, as everything was beautiful and ...

... For those that need a refresher, Agamemnon is the Greek king who Brad Pitt doesn't like in the movie Troy. Anyway, it's just a name for the mask, it's really from some Mycenaean king or rich guy, there is as of yet no concrete proof that Agamemnon existed. There was also a gold body covering for an infant that died, that was awesome. Not so much the dead baby part, but it's a kick-ass funeral custom. I want to be covered in gold when I die. There ...

London to Athens

Up early, then took the train to London, then the tube out to Heathrow. I arrived over two hours early for my flight. Had no trouble getting through security. Went to club to work until time for my flight. Flight was delayed a bit. Easy trip to Athens. I missed the metro by 7 minutes so had to wait a while, but it wasn't bad. ...

... one of the two main squares where Muslim Brotherhood supporters are currently camped out, but otherwise you never would have known there was anything out of the ordinary going on in the city.

We got back to our hotel at 11 a.m. and caught a shuttlebus to the airport at noon. Our flight wasn't til 3:30, but I was not at all confident they would have our passports ready for us (or even know where they were), so I wanted to give us a ...

    Good rooms, they have air conditions inside.
    Breakfast buffet have very nice variety of choices.
    The hotel offers free shuttle buses to the city center!
    The swimming pool and the view from the top floor is very nice.
    the lobby has free WiFi

    The negative side that it is a little bit expensive and it is far from the city and has no subway or tram station nearby.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Metropolitan Hotel Athens

    A Cruise/Conference Hotel

    from

    This hotel is overpriced with mediocre food and unhelpful staff. I would rate it a 4 star hotel rather than 5. Our stay was dominated by people off cruise ships and conferences. We were also disappointed to find that we had paid more for our room( 3 star standard) than other guests.

    The walls are thin and one is privy to the activities of the other guests.

    I would not recommend this hotel.

    Big Hotel

    from

    Big Hitel, about 15min bus ride from centre of Athens. There is a regular free shuttle bus, both ways, but on occaison it can fill up very quick and you must wait for the next one or pay for a taxi. Popular with tour groups. excellent breakfatsts, very busy. Regular hotel rooms. A few restaurants in walking distance otherwise must catch bus into town - last bus to return back to hotel 9:30pm.

    Good Hotel, Nice breakfast and toiletteries

    from

    I stayed in the Metropolitan twice in april and june 2005. Both stays were very pleasant. The second time I had a room with a single bed and it was a bit small. Buffet breakfast was excellent with so many varities of food and fresh juices. The mini bar is an absolute rip off, 4 euros for a small watter bottle that sells for 0.25 euro in the supermarket. Food in general was expensive, 12 euros for a plate of cheese!! They do have a sign for the towels but they will change any towels placed in the tub which i guess is fair enough. I did not notice any dirt or dust. The soaps and shampoo are molton brown all over the hotel, and of excellent quality. The location is midway between athens and pireaus which is convenient but its not a touristic place. The view from the roof top pool and restaurant is nice but not great, the race track in front of the hotel is far from appealing and the acropolis is so far away that you need a telescope to recognize it. The nearest touristic area is new izmir square but in general taxis are cheap and you can take a taxi to athens or pireaus for less than 8 euros. One thing I found strange is that the house maids opened my room door at least three times in the morning to clean while I was still in the room !!! So you might want to use the do not sisturn sign if you stay there.

    Excellant Choice

    from

    Stayed here for 5 nights whilst on business in May 05. I travel quite a lot on business and am usually hard to please with hotels finding many faults! However....I really could not fault the Metropolitan in any way.

    Not what I expected

    from

    We visited in March 2005 and because of all the great reviews of the Metropolitan, we thought we were in for a wonderful stay at a very nice hotel. We were wrong.

    The best hotel in Athens?

    from

    There is no doubt that the Metropolitan is now successfully competing with Athens' top hotels. We just returned from an 8-day stay and found the rooms immaculate and the staff among the most professional we have encountered as frequent travellers. They simply could not do enough for us. We have stayed in most of Athens' best hotels and the Metropolitan is now our #1 choice. We disagree, too, with previous comments on the hotel's location. It is actually located equal distance from the centre of Athens, Piraeus and the south coast, making it more convenient than the others on the same road. And, besides, the hotel offers free and frequent shuttle service to the centre of Athens! There are several tavernas surrounding the hotel, too, offering fantastic Greek food at reasonable prices. (Kythira was our favourite. Try the house white wine.)

    Great choice

    from

    We just returned from our trip to Athens and Greek Isle cruise. The first four nights we spent at the Metropolitan Hotel. It was fabulous!! Very modern, clean and luxurious. Plush down comforters on the bed, granite countertops in the bathroom, nice wood work and details throughout. Very nice fitness center with all of the equipment and free weights you need. Rooftop pool w/lounge chairs and towels were a nice touch. View from the rooftop is amazing on a clear day. Hotel seemed to cater more to the "business traveler", but the front desk staff was helpful at recommending area restaurants and giving advice on city attractions and how much a taxi would cost us to get there. My "better half" teases me about being so picky when it comes to hotel rooms. No complaints about this one. Loved it!

    A little ways out, but very nice

    from

    Stayed at the Metropolitan for 4 days, and it has to regarded as one of the better hotels in Athens.

    Pros- Great hotel

    Cons- Too far to walk to the Plaka/Acropolis etc.

    Cab fair only cost us about 2-3 Euros to or from Syntagma Sq.

    Would saty there again in a heartbeat.

    Big Fat Greek Weddings

    from

    We choose this hotel based on the TripAdviso's rating...it was great..modern, clean and friendly..until 10 p.m. at night when from the second floor near the elevators we heard pounding music..when we called the Reception, they told us three wedding receptions were being held. We ranted and raved...so the next morning they discounted our room by half...if you go just ask for a room far from the elevators, away from the stairwell...maybe then you won't hear the music from the big fat Greek weddings.

    Great place

    from

    WOW. We traveled all over Greece for 2 weeks and nothing else came close to being this luxurious. The rooms were modern, everything new, clean, comfortable, a/c. Dining was very good as well, best breakfast we had in any Greek hotels. Only thing is it is a bit far away from downtown attractions, so you will need to cab it or rent a car.
