Stayed for 4 days with a group and while the hotel itself is okay, the staff really ruined our whole view of the Amalia. We only met one person who was not trained to say no to our every request. The front desk staff are not only unhelpful but one man (night staff) actually made fun of one of our teammates in front of me. Veru unprofessional & mean.
Rooms are quite small and VERY hot (my travel alarm clock registered 26 degrees Celsius). We werne't lucky enough to get a balcony and as we were on the first floor, our window only cracked open vertically, the full horizontal opening is locked.
The best thing about the Amalia is the location. It's great to be at Syntagma, so close to Plaka and all the sights.
The banquet food was pretty good, but again, the banquet staff were at best detached and at worst, unfriendly.
The breakfast buffet was quite good (the yogurt with honey is so yummy and the dolmas melt in your mouth) but for fear of repeating myself, the breakfast staff was terrible. One day, I asked one of the servers for help with the Greek coffee and she refused. We only once we offered or served coffee, the rest of the time we had to get it ourselves from the server station.
