Best Western Amazon Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 November 2012

This hotel is 5 minutes walk from the subway and Syntagma Square in Athens. Reprents great value for money. Breakfast and wifi are included. Small but functional elevators, big breakfast room.
Excellent location to walk to Parthenon, Plakka, the museums. Easy access from the subway to Piraeus for a cruise.
Across the street from famous mini church.
The staff were helpful in giving directions, had free maps also.
Good communication for reservations.
Rooms are large(ours had view of Acropolis). A bit tired in decor, but functional with A/C, safe, updated bathroom. Nothing above ordinary for the room, but it was quiet, comfortable and cheap.
What more can you ask for?
A great buy! Will stay there again for sure.

1) First impression is extremely small lobby area.
2) The lady receptionist not so friendly but the young man is OK , he makesure the taxi driver
will send us to bus station.
3) The lift really small (2 ppl & 2 luggages only).
4) Very small room, not enough space to put luggage.
5)The shower cabin really small, hardly can make a turn in side for a 75kg men like me..
6) At the window can look at the fantastic view Acropolis.
7) Walking distance to many restaurant & cafe.
8)Walking to Plaka 20min, Syntagma Square 15min, Acropolis 25~30min..
9) the breakfast is so far so good.

This location of the hotel is perfect for shopping & sight seeing only.

I've been there just for one night due to a business trip. Generally, I would characterize it clean, but there was a strange smell when me and my collegues get in to the room, which is, to my opinion, due to the wall-to-wall carpet. Also, the room we had was a triple one, but the one of the three beds was too small, like a children's bed, so the shorter of the three of us had to sleep there with negative results for her, as she couldn't have some real rest for the whole night. Breakfast was satisfying enough. For my next trip, I would search for another hotel to stay, but this doesn't mean I would never go there again.

Room Tip: If you need a triple room make sure, while you make your reservation, about the size of the beds.

I liked the location of the hotel. Perfect for sight-seeing trips and shopping trips. Walking distance to Ermou High Street shops and not too far away from Kolonaki with higher end style shops. The hotel is 5 mins walk to a train station.

The hotel lobby: I was very surprised to see that the lobby area is very small. Has only 2 small chairs. No has bar or coffee lounge area. Has 2 tiny narrow lifts which barely fits 2 persons especially with luggage. The reception desk is also narrow and half under the staircase! The staff was friendly enough.

Our room: We had a room on the 3rd floor and was a narrow room. The shower cubicle was very small. We has no view. I dont believe that the hotel was full, so I cant understand why they didnt offer to move us to another room with a view. As i understand it, those staying on the 4th and 5th floor has spectacular views of the Acropolis. Lucky them! The bedding was okay.Sheets clean. Could have used another pillow each.

The breakfast buffet: Fresh coffee and tea. Fresh bacon eggs fruit cereal jams etc... all good and very tasty. As its a 3 star, cant expect anything more that what you get.

Room Tip: If want want a room with a view, as for it before booking! Has a fridge in the room, so always good...

This hotel was alright for a night. The front desk staff weren't overly friendly, snapping when I couldn't understand what part of the check-in form to fill out. The hotel would be in a decent area (between Syntagma Square and the Plaka), however the outside area of the hotel is very dirty with grafitti everywhere and there were policy on every nearby corner, it didn't feel very safe walking back to the hotel at night. The breakfast was basic but alright. There are probably better places to stay but if you get a good rate this hotel is alright.

Not a bad hotel for Athens. Reasonably priced compared to others. Great location for seeing the historical sites in Athens. Good restaurants around so great for vacationing. Lots of small shops if your into that sort of thing

Whilst in a very favourable spot just behing Syntagma Square, the outside of the hotel looks quite seedy. Front desk staff were polite and knew their job but didn't go out of their way to be friendly. The room was typical for an average priced hotel, my window was far too high to see out but then there wasn't an attractive view from any side. Everywhere was very clean and my towels changed daily. My only real complaint was the breakfast, both mornings the eggs were cold and the bacon greasy and at best luke warm. housekeeping staff were cheery and helpful and equipped my room with a kettle and tea and coffee. I wouldn't reccommend the hotel for a long stay but for the 2 days I needed to complete my business, I would use it again purely for the price and position.
