The Met Hotel5.0 out of 5.0

Excellent hotel very clean and comfortable. Despite being far from the center the shuttle service is very convenient. The prices are attractive and the food/breakfast is well worth it. Very friendly staff. The area where it's situated is not attractive at all, particularly at the back the hotel.
We came here to celebrate a great family event and felt in love with this hotel ! Service is great, the location is right outside of the hectic city so you can enjoy it and the quality of this hotel is "A Class"
We stayed 2 days here because of the pool, which is fine (the view is less spectacular however). It's a pity that (too) many locals are also using the swimming pool as it can get busy. The food is really good, great breakfast. The personnel is very friendly. Clean rooms, comfortable beds and an airconditioning that is very efficient and not noisy (for a change as this is not the case in many hotels).
A modern & cool hotel that I keep coming back too but on this 4th stay I have notice a slight shift in its level of standards, which have slightly dropped. I would always consider this like my second home when I would stay in Thessaloniki, but the warmth & hospitality is slightly lacking. I must say though that the Life Guards & one particular driver of the shuttle bus were exceptional (what I remember the Met hotel to be like). The change in Management has been noticed & when Mr [--] was running it there was a greater duty of care to its patrons. The rooms are large, comfortable & clean but toiletries sometimes don't get replaced. Buffet breakfast is great but the quality is not the same & the wait staff need to have a bit more personalities (I do speak Greek). The food at the Skybar has dropped & would not accommodate for a meal in the evening. Generally it still a hotel I enjoy staying at but I just wish it was the way it was.
We arrived at Thessaloniki airport and booked a taxi through the hotel. Unfortunately no one was waiting for us at the exit of the airport. Called the hotel and yes, the taxi diver left because we had a 40 minute delay! Really? We had to wait for another one. Once arrived at the hotel we got no apologies for this issue. We got a room and went for dinner into the city center with the mini bus which most of the days drives once every hour. On the day we had planned a trip departing from the city center in the morning, of course there was only shuttle service once every 2 hours (which you can only know in the morning of that day because then they release a list with the hours) so we had to pay for a taxi which ripped us off by saying that we needed to pay 2 euros extra (on an amount of 4 euro) because he was called by the hotel. Anyway, next day we went to the rooftop garden to sunbathe and have a swim. Most of the seats in the shade were reserved and "protected" by the safeguard. However, no one turned up until late afternoon. They usually stayed for 1 hour and left afterwards. It is unacceptable for a hotel with this standard to let it happen that people obviously pay the lifeguard to keep their seats all day while they are not there, when other guests have the sit in the sun. Furthermore, water service was only on the first row, where most of the time those people with reserved chairs were seated. Upon Check-out, they tried to rip us off again. We got a special rate because of a conference, so we got 10 euros discount per night on the rooms and this was not accounted for. Furthermore, we payed 2 nights upon booking, which were not brought into account either. We really had to take a close look to the receipt and had to tell the man by the reception. A little bit awkward and we left with a bitter taste. Breakfast however, was really nice with fresh juices, eggs cooked to your liking and everything you could think of. Furthermore, the rooms were nice, AC worked fine and the rooms were sound-proof too. The hotel looks impressive, but it should improve on the way they are handling some of their costumers. Only then, a 4* rating is justified.
My Boyfriend and I stayed at the Met for 3 nights this week. We decided to stay based upon my visit to the rooftop pool as a guest around 2 years ago. Overall our experience was very good, the beds were so comfy, the rooms spacious and the rooftop pool as welcoming and refreshing as I remembered. The staff were also all so lovely, helpful and kind, especially the lifeguards on working at the poolside. We had booked a double room through booking.com and were quite disappointed to find that we had two single beds pushed together and this meant one of us often fell down the gap. Having said that the mattresses were very comfy and on the whole we slept very well.The breakfast was very good, but the coffee very poor and not expected from a 5* hotel. Our only really massive disappointment was the quality of the food on the rooftop. It really was awful and has gone down in quality and up in price since my last visit. I ordered a salad of sun-dried tomatoes and dressed mixed leaves. What arrived was a tiny bowl of leaves drenched in salt and oil - no tomatoes, no dressing and some toast made from value pre sliced brown bread. I enquired about the tomatoes and eventually after asking several times I got 3 dirty cherry tomatoes brought over in another bowl. This bowl of leaves was 10 euros and put such a downer on our first meal in Greece!! Overall though, a lovely place to stay and great staff, just DON'T eat at the rooftop.
Managed to bag a good deal for this nice hotel as we were doing humanitarian work in and around thessaloniki. The hotel boasts of a spa and roof top pool and bar which are nice if you get to enjoy them. Of a 7 day stay the pool was closed to guest 2 days and closed early on Sunday so check the hotel website to see if it's open. There are other open area to chill and relax on the ground floor but you will need insect repellent and there are no loungers just seats. The bar staff are not the most polities when it comes to asking for a cold glass or some nibbles. Rooms are very clean spacious and bed is very comfortable. No USB connections so make sure you bring your electricity adapter. The balconies do not have any seating so they are a waste of space and under-utilised. The spa is nice but small and gets very crowded. Food is ok but not the best from the rooftop bar/restaurant. Breakfast is worth paying for and the staff on breakfast service are super polite kind and always remember your coffee choice. Parking is not free but if you book directly via the hotel you can get free parking and it's great to have car to get out into the small villages. The hotel offers a pickup and drop off service into thessaloniki check the flyer next to reception. There was a lot of chat on TripAdvisor about the area the hotel is in. I would say it felt safe and we did not feel worries at all. The area is due for regeneration but that could be years. We walked to One Salonica several times as the mall is good and the supermarket in the basement of the mall is clean light and very good value. (Check out the ready made meal counter for a quick meal. Ask for it to be heated!) Overall the hotel is nice clean and priced well for it's location. Facilities are nice and clean staff are friendly.
I wnet here for a conference and the hotel's good points were great swimming pools inside and out and wonderful staff . The location is a bit strange and the roof bar is amazing. Overall the design of the hotel is modernist and grey and dark and not really my cup of tea; it is in the docks area and looks over the docks room was large and comfortable and pleasant enough. Breakfast was good but coffee needs improvement
The MET was my first stay in Greece and it goes a long way to pay off its cost. While it is out of town they provide a safe and private shuttle on the hour, but one can always enjoy the walk. The rooms have wonderful beds and showers. The breakfasts are ample. The rooftop pool is excellent. Would recommend it to anyone for a treat. Not to mention the lobby!
Where to start, so many wrongs...The spa pool is tiny and full of people at all times, we couldn't use it. The roof top pool is quite small and it is open to the locals, so it is very overcrowded. In any case, it closes at 6pm, so it was unusable as well. Unfriendly personnel (with the exception of some folks at breakfast and the guy in reception). All other personnel, make you feel like they are doing you a favour, even when you paid a fortune for the room. Other guest told me, it feels like you are staying at your uncle's house and your uncle dosn't want you there. She was right! It was very noisy because there were parties on the roof at all times (weekend weddings, weekdays conference dinners or so). No kettle in the room, so you have to order room service for a cup of tea at 10 Euros a pop!. Our room was cleaned ONCE in 4 days. We didn't have enough toiletries, in fact, we have to ask reception for toilet paper! We have a private balcony, but it had no furniture, so unusable as well. By day 2, we rented a car to get the hell out of there. Finally, the location is terrible, near the docks. All and all, worse money I've spent in years. The most disappointing 25 wedding anniversary ever, and I will never forgive them for providing me with such an awful time.
