As much as I love traveling the world and enjoy exploring earth's remotest corners, there's a huge part in me that always remains Athens-bound. That is why I loved so much the Relove Athens concept - the unique hospitality experience offered by the brand new Electra Metropolis Hotel right in the center of Athens.
Having the opportunity to experience the city center through the eyes of a visitor offered the very best – from the majestic views of the historical center to the most luxurious amenities and services – was truly inspiring and eye-opening as for the reason why a first-time visitor of Athens would fall for the city.
That is exactly what the Relove Athens concept stands for; a concept inspired by the talented Electra Metropolis team.
Relove Athens is an open invitation to all Athenians, an invitation to fall in love with their city all over again by offfering them a unique accommodation experience that includes an overnight stay in one of the hotel's luxurious rooms with a spectacular view to the Acropolis, a fine-dining experience with a chance to taste some of the restaurant's finest dishes the Greek- Mediterranean cuisine has to offer, refreshing cocktails at the M Bar located at the Roof Garden, as well as, a relaxing spa experience to top off a luxurious stay.
In other words, the idea is all about experiencing a magical 24-hours right in the heart of Athens. And not only was I there, but I also had the chance to live a magnificent Breakfast In Bed experience - plus the Acropolis view!
I was immensely lucky to experience the Relove Athens concept first hand – an experience I shared via INSTAGRAM and FACEBOOK in real time. I spent 24 hours living Athens like a visitor with the company of my best friend and there are more posts to come sharing that experience: Breakfast in Bed with a view of the Acropolis, the Fine Dining experience at the marvellous Roof Garden curated by chef Dimitrios Boutsalis and the amazing cocktails prepared by Panos Anastasiadis at the M Bar with the magnificent night view of the Acropolis.
The Electra Metropolis is right in the heart of the city of Athens, at Mitropoleos street within a walking distance from Sintagma square, the historical city center and the hip downtown spots of Agia Eirini square, youthful Kolokotroni street, Monastiraki and Plaka. Its incredible location oozes elegance with its long history – where the former Ministry of Education once stood – and its 5-star quality.
It is a hotel that embodies the elements I love experiencing: a fine retro chic design with contemporary detailing and the air of an era long gone. Its 60's aesthetic and the vintage details create a luxurious atmosphere that won my heart from the very first moment there. The spectacular atrium decorated with the silver bees art piece by Alekos Fasianos is the highlight of the hotel – only comparable to the 10th floor view of the Athenian sky where the 360 view will astonish you.
The view from the Roof is a lifetime-worth experience, an experience that should be in the Bucket List of every visitor of the city of Athens. I definitely enjoy it from time to time whether that is for my morning coffee, breakfast, lunch or a late night glass of wine.
Let's ReLove Athens!
