“You sleep on railway berths?”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

If you are happy to use births and toilets as good as on any train then the rooms are good for you. The place where they serve breakfast is like a passage in a hotel where you rub bums with other guests. Location is nice but no place for tourists. It may be ok for a local business client

What a great hotel. Admittedly, I accidently booked into the suite, so we have the entire top floor and balcony to ourselves and had great views of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. The room was simply outstanding. The breakfast is somewhat limited in its variety, but is of the typical European style and is certainly enough to satisfy most appetites.
We found the staff very friendly and helpful and the hotel was in an outstanding position and very quiet at night...enabling a very good night’s sleep. While the street was relatively busy, it had the advantage of being very narrow and one way, so the traffic was not too bad. Some very good restaurants and cheaper eating places were just outside the hotel and offered great variety at reasonable prices. For anyone who uses the public transport system, or Open Bus Tours, there are 2 bus stops less than 200m from the hotel giving you easy access to all of the regular tourist sites. For those who prefer to walk, Hadrian’s Arch, the Temple of Zeus and the Botanical Gardens are an easy 10 minute walk.
There is a very distinct change in the style of shopping in Athens that occurs around dusk, and the Amazon is in a great position to enjoy the change. Wander the streets during the day and enjoy the local feel of the markets and ‘normal’ shops, but by all means wait until dark and go just one street away to see all of the ‘tourist’ shops open. They have a completely different feel and are all within a very comfortable walking distance of the hotel.
The Amazon provided us a very enjoyable stay with a great room, very pleasant staff where we felt most welcome and it is in a great position Highly recommended!

Room Tip: If you can afford it, upgrade to the suite and enjoy the excellent views.

This mid-range hotel is actually called Best Western Amazon, and is just a few minutes walk from Syntagma Square in the heart of Athens. There are plenty of cafes, bars, and restaurants in the area, and many attractions are in walkable distance. The room itself are rather small and standard. During my stay, the free wifi was not working in the room, only in the lobby and business area. The breakfast is good with local yoghurt and cheese, fruit and Greek-style coffee.

perfect location in Plaka, two steps from Syntagma square and the Acropolis.
We got a family room for four people (two kids): it was spacious and very comfortable.
The staff were very nice and friendly (the lady in the breakfast room even fixed a ponytail to my daughter).
Very clean and reasonably priced.
Buffet breakfast isn't something fabulous but there was plenty to choose from.

I would whole heartly recommend this hotel, it's a really great base for a short city trip. It's close as you can be to Syntagma square without being attually on it! Rooms are clean, not exactly spacious (we had a twin and triple) but more than adequate. Breakfast is simple, and is freshened and attended to regularly. All in all a smashing visit!
