Best Western Amazon Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 January 2009

Save your time and energy looking for a hotel in Athens. . The Amazon Hotel is the place to stay if you are coming to Athens. Great location, amazing staff, clean room. I had the view with the Acropolis and did not want to leave my room. You are within walking distance to most of the most important sights in Athens. I spent 10 days at this beautiful hotel and will be back the next time I am in Athens.

Enjoy yourself and stay at the Amazon. I promise you won't be disappointed. I have been to Europe 15 times and this hotel is a gem.

We stayed at the Amazon Hotel at the end of November. Everything about this hotel is just right! The location, the rooms, the cleanliness, the staff.
Is 2 min from Syntagma metro station so has easy access from the airport and to everything else (Acropolis, Thesio, Plaka etc.)
The staff was very polite and the rooms very clean and new.
The breakfast was nice (not a five stars hotel's, but still just fine).
The only down sight was that although I was at the sixth floor there was noise from the street. But the location is sooo great and safe, and you get so tired from touring that it will make no difference when you sleep.
All was very nice at an excellent price! 40euro per person including breakfast in a double room! Will stay here again!

we just went to Athens at the end of Sep 2008. The weather is not too hot but windy... The location of this hotel is fantastic.

The following are the main building or attraction nearby:
1. Acropolis - 20 mins by walking
2. Syntagma Square - 2 mins by walking
3. Monastiraki Flea Market - 15 mins by walking
4. Plaka - 10 mins by walking
5. National Archeological Museum - 25 mins by walking
6. Temple of Zeus - 15 mins by walking
7. Parliament - 10 mins by walking
8. Shopping area - 5 mins by walking

Initially, we thought some of the above places are far so we took railway. However, when we just kept hang around, we realised the above attraction are very near. In fact Amazon Hotel is just in the centre of Plaka and Monastiraki.

So keep your money by walking around and don't waste money for taxi or transport for the above attractions.

We've stayed at a number of modestly priced hotels in Athens in recent years, and they have ranged from tolerable to downright awful. The Amazon was a very pleasurable surprise.
It's slap-bang in the city centre, mid-way between Syntagma and Plaka, only a couple of minutes' walk from the metro and bus stops to anywhere in the city.
We found: Helpful, friendly, relaxed staff with excellent English. Large room, with a big couch as well as beds, TV, fridge etc. Two huge windows - though nothing of interest to look at. Very modern, functioning bathroom. Full air conditioning controlled by a wall-mounted remote. Good breakfast compared with most hotels at this price. Two lifts - and both of them working!
We booked through lastminute.com and got a very good price.

Me and my husband stayed in Athens for 2 nights in August before going on easycruise. After doing some research about central hotels near the acropolis, we found the Amazon with a very good price, comparing to others (160euros for 2 nights during peak season!). We don't need fancy hotels since we only stay there at night. So location, safety and price were a must in our choice. The hotel didn't fault our expectations. Although it was a bit difficult getting there because no one knew about it, after reaching it, it was really really easy. Maybe the people we talked to didnt understant our english. So after getting out of the metro at syntagma square, go right in front and you will see Macdonalds. To its left you will see a road. i can't remember if its the first one paralel to macd. or if its the 2nd. Go on that road until you reach a small chuch on the left hand side. it's right in front of the amazon. There's a blue sign on the road with its name. If you see the sign, look left. There it is.
The room was basic, the bathroom aswell. Despite the shower didn't have curtain. So we had to be very carefull not to wet the whole bathroom. The floor could get really slippery, So just be carefull. Our you'll just be lucky and have a shower with a curtain!
Breakfast was suitable for the price we paid. Basic continental (bread,cereals,fruit,natural yogurt,lovely honey,eggs,etc etc).
Overall, if you want to pay a bit more for a more spacious room, hot english style buffet, a hotel with a view to the acropolis, that unfortunately this one didn't have, its better to book elsewhere. if you only want an inexpensive place to put your things and visit Plaka, this is the ideal.
Although i enjoyed my stay at Amazon very much, if i return to Athens i would definetly book a hotel with a terrace bar where i could have a drink before going to bed enjoying the lovely romantic night views of the acropolis.

standard rooms that are clean and basic with tv and minfridge. my room looked towards an abandoned building, with an quaint little church which the abandoned building built over. tried to go to the rooftop for an acropolis viewing but door was locked. bathroom is clean and modern, though no matter how hard i close the shower door, the water seemed to seep through and part of the floor wet - i just put an additional towel on the floor to soak up the water.

other note: do not pull the cord in the bathroom if you are absolutely in need of medical emergency - when it is pulled, the receptionist is instantly notified that you need help. and yeah, it is true, you don't throw toilet paper into the bowl, you are supposed to throw them to the trash can - this is all over greece as they don't have a robust sewage system.

location: 5 mins to syntagma square (and metro, 6 Euros from/to airport) and shopping pedestrain ermou street and to the border of plaka. there is a supermarket around the corner but it closes on the weekends.

standard breakfast with hardboiled eggs, cheese, bread, greek yogurt with honey, fruits, cordial and coffee etc.

overall good value for money, and i saved a lot more by booking on a travel website - got a cheaper rate than the hotel rates and than travel agency (dolphin or fantasy)!!

Amazon Hotel was a pleasant enough experience. My wife and I stayed there for 3 nights at the end of July 2008. It is very central to the Plaka, Syntagma and Monastiraki districts. The rooms are standard but very clean. The staff were helpful once encouraged. Overall if you are looking for a hotel simply sleep in then this hotel is decent.
