“A Revisit !”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

We stayed here last year, and liked this hotel so much that we didn't even consider alternatives when booking to stay a couple of days before a cruise.
The staff are lovely, the rooms are comfortable and clean, and the breakfasts very good.

The only thing missing is a swimming pool, which, while impractical, would have been wonderful with temperatures in the upper 30s !

Room Tip: Worth asking for a room on Amalia Avenue, because then you can see the changing of the guard from yo...

We stay at the Amalia most years for just one night on our way back from a Greek island. It is perfectly positioned to walk to most attractions and is a safe and easy walk to many tavernas and cafes. The staff are all welcoming and efficient. There is a free computer and printer in the lobby which is useful for online check in. The breakfast is an excellent buffet and it is best to book a"breakfast included" package to save money. We have always had excellent rooms and would recommend the deluxe rooms at the front on the highest floor possible. They are slightly affected by road noise but the view is worth it! Also be sure to go up to the roof to have a panoramic view of Athens. Both the airport bus and Syntagma Metro station are only a two minute walk when it's time to leave.

This was our second stay in the Amalia and it was even better than the first. The hotel is very central and perfectly located if you have time or are there to visit Athens (and not merely transiting from the islands). It's super close to the X95 bus stop to the airport and also convenient to the metro to get to Piraeus (although you'll have to change lines). Best of all, the rooms are large and clean, the staff are friendly and the breakfast buffet is wonderful. This is an excellent modern Athens choice and very reasonably priced.

the location, the buffet, the friendly staff..everything was a marvelous experience for the 5 of us that stayed at this hotel for one night. They did not even charge us for accommodating my husband at the last moment in our room. you see, our tour was already set from months in advance with Gate 1, and it wasn't until one week before departure that my husband was given the ok at his work. By this time, Gate 1 said the tour was already sold out and there was no way for my husband to by included; therefore, I contacted each hotel via email and asked them if they could accommodate my husband, with an additional fee, of course. To our surprise, when the morning of our checking out of the hotel came, they told us that it was complimentary. They certainly made our day!

Excellent, clean, modern hotel in the middle of it all. Safe area, great restaurants, walk to everything. It is across the street from the metro to the airport. Free buffet breakfast was unbelievable...they had EVERYTHING anyone could wish for. We booked the cheapest room online (115 Euros at that time) and at check-in were upgraded to a Superior Double without asking, which had a balcony. The room was spacious and clean with a very clean bathroom. Quiet all night long which meant a. Great nit's sleep. WiFi, AirCon, what more could one ask for? We loved the value of the Amalia and would highly recommend it to others.

This review is based on our recent stay at Hotel Amalia! A good hotel very strategically located right next to Plaka--the shopping district and also with lots of street cafes to have kabobs and greek food open till late night. The historical gardens are right opposite to this hotel. The hop on hop off buses stop here for city touring. The tour buses pick you up from this hotel. Rooms are fairly decent with balconies. Breakfast and reception area also good. Breakfast is really good with a variety of items to choose from including some crispy greek desert! You also get free wifi .We loved our stay in Athens with Hotel Amalia and would love to come back again in future.
An advice: Please make some packed breakfast boxes arrangements for early flight takers from Athens to other places of visit since Athens provides lots of early morning flight connections. We missed your lovely breakfast on the last day of our stay since we had to take a morning flight.

Room Tip: Make the most of this hotel.

We recently stayed at the Amalia Hotel for 2 nights. We arrived late at night (around 2:00 am), but we were checked in quickly and courteously. Our room had one Queen Bed, with 2 pairs of slippers waiting for us. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was spacious and clean.

The 2 areas where this hotel really shines are location and breakfast. The hotel is 1 block from Syntagma Square, so the location is perfect for exploring all parts of Athens. It is across the street from the National Gardens, and walking distance from most sites. There is a metro stop at Syntagma Square, so it's also very easy to hop on the metro to get wherever you need to go. If you arrive late at night like we did, the Airport Bus X95 drops off at Syntagma Square, so it is a quick 3 minute walk from the bus to the hotel.

Breakfast is served on the Mezzanine floor, and has a HUGE (5 or 6 tables) buffet setup, with everything from pastries and fruit to eggs, potatoes, sliced meats, and yogurt. It is by far one of the best complimentary breakfasts I've ever seen.

The lobby is very clean and modern, with a complimentary computer and printer to print boarding passes. Wifi is also free and worked well in the room.

Around 9:00-10:00 am, when housekeeping is beginning to clean the rooms, it does get a bit noisy in the hallways. It's not the quietest hotel, but it's still pretty quiet. We never had an issue sleeping. Overall, Amalia Hotel Athens is tough to beat, and I would definitely consider staying there again.
