Electra Metropolis, Athens
Smack-bang in downtown Athens you’ll find the five-star Electra Metropolis Hotel. The ten-storey building (which once housed the Ministry of Education) was designed in 1959 by the Modernist architect Patroklos Karantinos and has been reimagined with a new retro-chic vibe. Guests can take their pick of everything from snug standard rooms to Acropolis suites equipped with private balconies. Fuel up for the day with breakfast on the tenth-floor roof garden while indulging in gorgeous Grecian views, before taking in the local sights (the old town of Plaka is a short stroll away and the surrounding streets buzz with restaurants, bars, cafés and shops). Escape from the hustle and bustle with an afternoon by the rooftop pool (boasting magnificent views of Lycabettus Hill) or in the Aegeo basement spa, which offers an urban oasis in the heart of the city. End the day with delicate Mediterranean cuisine at the hotel’s uber-stylish Library bistro or savour a signature cocktail at M Bar overlooking the labyrinthine streets of the old neighbourhood.

Oozing opulence, the property’s biggest draw is its two-storey spa, which offers therapeutic ‘European heat experiences’ and signature stone and salt scrub treatments.
