      Simple hotel in the business district, close to the tourist sites. Rooms and bathroom are a bit cramped, but was reasonably-priced for the area. It was difficult to sleep as there is currently construction going on; some appeared to be within the hotel and some from outside. Breakfast was mediocre.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Amazon Hotel Athens

      Excellent location, very clean, but very small

      from

      We stayed in the Amazon Hotel for 3 nights in March 2006. The hotel location is excellent. Just 5 minutes walk from the metro and 15 minutes walk to major tourist attractions. Lot's of eating and shopping places around.

      Most importantly, the room is very clean and the bathroom is newly / nicely renovated. Housekeeping is flawless and breakfast is pretty good for the price of Euros 85 a night we paid.

      Hotel staff are friendly and helpful. The only drawback (although not significant in light of all its good points) is perhaps the very small room.

      We highly recommend the hotel.

      Great hotel but Americans have to do their homework

      from

      The Amazon Hotel does not have a big hall nor a big reception but this is not where you sleep, shower or watch.

      Americans usually complain the rooms are small. If they would have done their homework, they would know that in general hotel rooms in Europe are smaller than in the US.

      Price-quality wise, the Amazon is one of the best hotels you can get in Athens!

      Great little find

      from

      After spending hours on the internet looking for a decent hotel at a reasonable price in Athens, I decided on the Amazon Hotel because of the location and the good reviews it received. I wasn't disappointed!

      The location was great, we were able to walk to all the sites. A short walk takes you to the Plaka, where you look up to find the Acropolis towering over you. The room was on the small side, but was clean and tidy and everything was in good condition. We were on the 6th floor and there wasn't much of a view from the window, but then I wasn't planning on spending the week in my room!

      Breakfast was continental which was to be expected and, as far as continental breakfasts go, it seemed pretty reasonable. The girl who worked in the breakfast room was extremely friendly and helpful.

      Desk staff spoke English and seemed helpful enough.

      Although it is possible to get a cheaper room in Athens, it was a fantastic location and was worth the extra cost. I would stay there again.

      Average hotel, good location

      from

      We stayed at the Amazon on two occasions during our trip. We were allowed to check-in early without any problems.

      Our first room, Room 606, was an average sized room. Unfortunately, there wasn't an attachment to hang the shower handle from so you had to constantly hold onto the handle during the shower. Also, my friend wanted to have her towels replaced and left them on the floor. Upon returning to the room, she thought that the towels had been re-hung onto the towel bar. After requesting fresh towels, her towels were immediately replaced.

      Breakfast buffet was served on the first floor. Buffet selection was a bit on the small side. However, I did notice a breakfast sitting area for guests wanting to drink coffee and read the paper instead of eating breakfast.

      Our second room, Room 503, was much smaller than our first room but the shower had an extension to hang the handle. Big improvement.

      Staff was friendly and spoke English. They were extremely helpful with providing directions. Rooms were clean. Beds were comfortable. Water pressure was a small issue in the mornings and would fluctuate from hot to cold.

      Hotel is in a great location off Syntagma Square. Basically, we got off the X95 bus from the airport and walked about 3 blocks to the hotel. Also, hotel is located about 5 minutes from the Plaka. After exiting the hotel, make a right down Pentelis. Make another right onto Apollonos. Go to the end of Apollonos and make a left. Within 50 meters, Zorbas Jewelry should be on the right and is located on Adrianou. Adrianou is one of the main shopping streets in the Plaka.

      Average hotel in a great location. Syntagma Square and the Plaka are two great areas to be located near.

      Good location but wasn't that impressed with the hotel

      from

      We recently stayed at the Amazon after reading countless reviews from this site. It made the hotel seem great. Although we didn't really have a problem with the hotel itself, the reviews were higher then we would have rated it. The pictures of the hotel are very deceiving. Its a very small hotel on a side street. The pics made it look much larger than it was. There was no lobby to speak of and when we checked in, the "front desk" wasn't the most helpful nor did they have a map of the city. For any hotel, having a map of the city should be essential given all the tourists that flock to the city. The rooms were REALLY SMALL (which seems somewhat typical for Athens). Overall, it was OK but would not go back again. The prices weren't as great as advertised but the location is what you pay for. It was close to Plaka and a number of other areas.

      Great location, great hotel, great price

      from

      We stayed at the Amazon hotel for three nights in late August. The hotel was great--the price was 100 euros a night, the rooms were very clean, there was good air conditioning and the location was perfect--midway between the Plaka and Syntagma Square.

      The quality of help at the front desk varied. The woman there in the evenings was totally useless, but most other people were somewhat helpful (although no one could tell us where to go to find a good massage in Athens).

      The room was quite small, but it was average compared with the other European hotel rooms I have been in. There was a minibar in the room, and space for your own waters or whatever. The TV was good and got a lot of channels. The shower was a standup shower, and it was quite small, but serviceable. Everything was very clean.

      This hotel was an excellent bargain, and I would definitely stay again!

      Good Location, Excellent Hotel

      from

      A nice hotel, in a good location. Rooms were basic but comfortable, clean, recently redecorated and above expectation for 3* hotel. The location was excellent, within easy walking distance of bus and tram links as well as all the main sights and lots of restaurants.

      Location and Price Unbeatable

      from

      We stayed here on our first visit to Athens. The English speaking staff was very helpful and friendly,and gave good advice and directions. Moderately priced in a great central location within 5-15 min walk of all the top historical and shopping areas in Athens. Was recommended to us by a native Greek. Comfortable, remodeled, and well air-conditioned rooms. Breakfast and all taxes are included in the quoted price.

      Great Place to Stay

      from

      Great location...5 minute walk to the Plaka and the Syntagma transit station. The hotel looks recently renovated, and is very comfortable. Also, the hotel staff is very helpful. I recommend staying here.

      Clean, good location, pretty good prices

      from

      The Amazon was a decent place to stay. We found a pretty good rate, and a light meal was included in our rate. The rooms were good size, and the air conditioning worked very well. Small bathroom, but it worked well. Clean hotel, with English-speaking staff. I would stay here again.

      ... there - wow. It's amazing what they were doing in 429BC. The temple of Erechtheion in Pentelic marble (421–406 BC) has an entrance supported by huge female figures or Caryatids that were still in very good condition. On the way out we sat and had an ice lemonade at the half way point and it was welcome refreshment.... Not sure my calves are going to be my best friend tomorrow! We called in to the ...

Aegean Air was pretty awesome in the end, with an unexpected meal included. One night in the Sofitel, with its supercool soundproof shower, and we'd be off to enjoy Athens' sites the next day. It turned out that my lack of Greek wouldn't really prove a problem; the Greeks have a good level of English down pat. We bought ...

      ... a great way to see the city, and because it was a two day ticket, we basically used it as our own personal bus service for the two days. On Sunday we got to check out the top of the Acropolis and the Parthenon, which was something I was especially excited for. Those old ancient monuments and structures really bring out my inner nerd. Perhaps its not so inner though, considering I introduced this blog post with a paragraph about The Hobbit. Oh well.
