TravelPod Member ReviewsAmalia Hotel Athens
Nice hotel situated right in the heart of Athens.
Room was spacious but we did pay for a deluxe room.
Breakfasts were good but cooked items EG egg and bacon were always cold.
Internet service was poor considering that they charged Five euros for each 24 hrs.
