    « clean modern good location »

    Clean modern room in a great location. Breakfast was good by Athens standards. Front desk staff fine, breakfast staff great! Rooms may be small for some, it did not bother us I mention it as I need to add more characters to my review!

    « Dishonest staff and manager »

    We ran into a lot of difficulty with the staff who promised to arrange transport to the airport and an agreed upon price. When they arrived the taxi driver said it was double the price we were told from front desk/manager. The manager & staff person who promised to have everything arranged for us at a specific price. When it came to dealing with the problem she was so intensely rude and clearly not trained in the customer service area. This was our only dishonest experience in Greece and the Islands. The rooms on our arrival were horrific but on the way back we had a much different room that was clean and modern. Ask for the decent room. Breakfast and the staff there were great too bad the front desk was terrible.

    Hard to beat central Athens hotel within walking distance to the main sights of Athens - Plaka, Monastiraki, Syntagma Square. Standard 3* BW Hotel that has been refurbished and offers all you need for a comfortable Athens city trip. Good buffet breakfast choice and helpful cheerful staff.

    « Good option for a mid budget stay in Athens »

    Stayed there for one night. I selected this hotel mainly because of its location: right next to Ermou street. Nice and convenient room and friendly staff. Breakfast though could be improved. Definitelly a good option in Athens for a mid range hotel stay

    « Average »

    The only good thing is that its very near to the Railway station and the Center with plenty of options for shopping , eating and bus or taxi.Rooms were very small and staff I feel is bit in-sufficient knowledge.On spite of making the payment by cash while checking out they charge my credit card without intimation which is not a sign of professionalism I feel. They only have view rooms as SUITS.

    « great location »

    yes the rooms are on the small side but I have stayed in a lot smaller like the art deco area in Miami. It is a 7 min walk to the restaurants on the stairs, be sure to go right near the top for one of the best ones. They have live music and dance. Bus or train from airport is only a 5 min walk to the hotel. Good staff, easy check in and out. You are not spending much time in the room anyways so go for the location and you will be happy at the Amazon.

    « Good choice in great location »

    Our room and bathroom were small, but functional and clean. The location can't be beat. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great selection of items at breakfast. Overall, very satisfied with our stay.

    « Not too bad »

    The hotel was in a good location, not too far from the city centre. Breakfast at the hotel was nice and the room was clean with comfotable beds. There is no smoking signs in the corridor and rooms however ash trays are provided in the rooms and the smell of stale cigarette smell This impacted negatively on my stay.

    « A good balance between price and location »

    I stayed at this hotel for one night before taking a cruise from Pireus I'll start by the location - the hotel is situated in the city center, about 200 meters from a subway station. You can easily walk from the subway station to the hotel. It's even a walking distance from the Acropolis, and all major city attractions The hotel stuff was extremly friendly. Check-in and check-out were easy The room was small (I understand that there are bigger rooms in this hotel), the bathroom (no bath only shower) was extremly small, but was adequate for two people. The room itself was quiet and clean Breakfast was nice (nothing more than the basic breakfast), and there is free (and very good) WiFi Above all - the price. You can't find a better hotel for that price. If you need a hotel in the center of town, for one night, at a good price, that's your hotel. I'd definately recommand it

    « Does the job »

    We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be adequate. Reception was courteous and helpful. We arrived in the late afternoon and check in took less than 5 minutes. The hotel itself is centrally located, at around a 10 minutes walk to Syntagma metro station. The facility and furnishings aren't new and the decor is definitely dated, but the room was clean and spacious. It was comfortable and outfitted with the usual amenities. In addition, temperature control was responsive and easy to use. The bed was like a cloud. Everything about the bathroom is tiny and crunched. I banged my head on the shelf above the sink a few times when washing my face. Though it was outfitted with all the usual toiletries. Hot water and water pressure were solid. The breakfast is continental buffet. It was filling and we have no complaints. There was even hot drinking water. All in all, this hotel was okay and we will consider staying here again in the future when we revisit Athens.

    « Very convenient location »

    My rating is mostly for the perfect location of the hotel and the friendliness of most of the staff. Most of the places I wanted to visit are within a 2-kilometer radius. The rooms and bathrooms are small, but I can't complain given the price and the location. At any rate, I only needed a place to shower and crash for the night. Breakfast was the same each day, but it's nothing that put me off. The staff, especially Angeliki, Stelios, Panagiotis at the front desk and Maria at the cafe were all friendly and nice, even taking the time to teach me some Greek.

    « Just Ok »

    The location was great, right in the city centre and close to every place you have to see. Syntagma Square is just about 3 minutes walking so it is very convenient. Staff was nice and helpful any time we asked something. Breakfast was alright but the worst part was the room (204). It was super small as well as the bathroom. Definitely not worth the price we paid for 4 nights.

    « Not satisfied »

    I checked in the month of October. I didn't like the room... very small and the toilet also quite small . I didn't book economy room still the room was so small.The room had no proper window.the window sil was too high.. they told it was a smoking room but when we came to the room found it to be non smoking room in a non smoking floor. The room was stuffy. Breakfast was awful. We stayed 3 days. Same repetitive breakfast and the timing is from 715am which is a bit late if you are going out for taking your flight Generally we stay in Novotel or Mercure of Accor group but due to the position of the hotel this time we selected this hotel and we didn't like .The location is superb. Syntagma station is walking distance.overall I would give 2.5 on 5.

    « Great Location & Stay »

    The hotel was very central; there were several bars and restaurants around it. We walked from the hotel to ermou street, then to monostariki square, the acropolis, acropolis museum, had lunch at plaka and walked back to the hotel.

    « Highly recommend »

    This hotel is in the heart of it all! We could walk to everything and easily come back to take a break or freshen up before an evening out. Since this was our honeymoon, we were SPOILED with the rooftop room 700 with a huge balcony and panoramic views of the city and the Acropolis. We highly recommend this hotel. Great location, breakfast, views and very clean!

    « Lost booking and average room »

    We stayed here for 2 nights and when we arrived, they could not find our booking. The girl at the front desk then said they would put us into a room for one night and the we would need to move into another room, as that room was already booked. The first room (family room) was well appointed, clean and modern. The next room (double) was almost the opposite, it was just a small room with a small bathroom. I understand that it was probally the only room avaiable, but it was not what I expected. The hotel is however ideally located near shops and restuarants.

    « Nice Central Hotel! »

    We stayed two nights at this beautiful central location. Close to restaurants,bars and shopping area, this hotel is situated just down town. We loved the simplicity of the interior decor and the cleanliness of the room.We will definitely stay there next time.

    « Spotless, great breakfast selection and unbeatable location »

    It is so conveniently close to everything that we could always take a break at any point of the day to go to the hotel to change or whatever. This was definitely the best of this hotel, added to the super clean rooms and great breakfast selection. The renovated rooms are smaller than the older ones but the size is perfectly fine. I would stay in this hotel anytime and I will recommend it to my friends and family.

    « Good rooms for the price »

    Rooms are basic and small but comfortable. Bathrooms are very small! Locations is perfect. Less than a 5 min walk from Metro and in the Plaka district with lots of choice for meals. Breakfast was good - lots of variety.

    4
    « Ideal position. Comfortable »

    Position could not be much better - on the edge of Plaka and only a couple of hundred metres from the transport hub of the city. All the historic sites are an easy walk. Three excellent restaurants across the street. Room was very large for a city centre hotel and was clean and well furnished. Breakfast was good by Greek standards though the orange juice and coffee were poor. It was also cheap. I have been recommending it to friends.

    « Excellent location »

    I was there for my honeymoon. Hotel location was perfect, close to metra and the archeological sites. Breakfast was fine, service too, the only down is that rooms are small, but it wasn't a big deal for the affordable price. We loved our time in Athens.

    « Hotel OK, Customer Service Less So.... »

    I stayed 3 nights at the Best Western Amazon Hotel at the end of August and had a mixed time. This was not down to the room, location or hotel facilities, but sadly the poor customer service. I checked in late on Night 1, around 10pm. No problem went up to my room on the 5th floor and it was fine. Room clean, tiny and everything working. The free wifi was spotty but no problem. Next morning went downstairs to meet up with a friend also staying at the hotel, ate breakfast - again delicious with lots of choice. Around 9:30 go to leave the hotel and was asked, quite curtly, what room I was staying in. I replied, and was told, again quite curtly, that I would have to move that day to another room. I asked why and was told that the room needed to be re-decorated. I appreciate that this can happen, but when I inquired as to why I had not been told this the evening before, and prior to unpacking my suitcase, no answer was given. I then asked when I would have to move, and was told 'this afternoon'. I tried to explain that I needed a narrower time slot as I would be out exploring the sites of Athens. I was then told early evening. OK - fine. In the evening I returned, talked to a different lobby clerk and was told that I would have to now move in the morning of the next day. Annoyed, but got on with it. On the morning of the 3rd day I went downstairs and was given the new room number, on the 2nd floor and smaller than the 5th floor. But OK, it is one night. at least the wifi worked better. My frustration was not in that I had to move, but how it was handled. I am/was not asking for any kind of compensation or recompense from the hotel, but I spoke to four different lobby staff. Not one of them offered any apologies or even said the word 'sorry' for the disruption to my stay. This may all seem petty, but I feel when you book at hotel room, you would like to know that for the duration of your stay things will be relaxing. This was not the case. I felt that the hotel staff could have been more appreciative of the disruption and at least offered an apology for a) not telling me when I checked in & b) offering an apology. It is a small thing to say 'sorry' but a significant one I feel. My stay was not terrible, and the hotel was fine and I don't want to labour the point, but I felt that ultimately the disruption to my stay was a matter that hotel staff didn't have any concerns about. It will put me off staying at a Best Western in the near future.

    « Great location great price great Taisia »

    Every hotel should have a worker like .Agupova Taisia. She answered every single email i sent which was alot with great professionalism and kindness. She suggested stuff to me and even sent me information on what i asked. Amazing amazing employee . Please give her a raise. She is actually one of the main reasons i booked the hotel. The hotel is great located. You take the x95 from the airport which is 6 euros. It drops you off at sygmata square. You walk away from the guards and you will reach the hotel. Its walking distance to plaka monastraki and a super market and bus and subway. The hotel was clean , shower was great and comfy bed. Automatic safe good breakfast in the morning and like i said amazing staff. And just across the street is a tour guide green apple which is run by olga. She is amazing aswell and the prices are great. I highly recomend this hotel for all. Quiet clean and friendly staff. Price was very reasonable and taxis outside all the time at the corner.

    « Nice Hotel in great location »

    This hotel is located in a strategic location: only 5 minutes walk to Syntagma Square and 15 to the Acropolis. The room was also nice and staff excellent, always happy to please any request. The only downside(but this is not the hotel's fault) was the big noise coming from the building in front, undergoing a major renovation; it was impossible sleeping after 8 am as the noise was too loud. Other than that it's a good choice for visiting the ancient wonders of Athens.

    « Excellent Location »

    This hotel has all the basics, a clean room, clean bathroom, good wifi and most importantly an excellent location. The metro is a 3 minute walk from the hotel, as are several restaurants, bars and a supermarket. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking for a great location on a budget. The breakfast is very lack luster but the food is edible. The beds were a bit firm for my liking. I would recommend it to friends and I would probably return.

    « You get what you pay for »

    The area of the hotel is amazing. Only a few minutes walk to all the main sights and next tp ermou street ( shopping area) the rooms were just ok ( we got the non renovated one) it was fine for us as all we wanted was somewhere to sleep, although the carpets really do need to be changed.

    « Horrible room but good location »

    Horrible small room at a fair price and a good location. Breakfast just as bad as the room. Photos online make the room look good but its in fact really bad. Maybe the most expensive rooms are nice but for their price you'll find better in Athens.

    « Central and convenient at reasonable price »

    We had a family room there were four of us, great space and clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Breakfast variety was buffet style with basic essentials, we left very early in the morning and they packed the breakfast pack for each family member, great touch. Central and in walking distance to all major sites. Generally good experience.

There are very good restaurants around the corner offering Pakistani, Indian & Continental cuisines.

    This Hotel is in the perfect location to The Plaka and centre of Athens, the main shopping and streets and sites of Athens. Easy access to walk from here. The hotel is modern and clean with good size rooms. We stayed here twice on our way to Corfu and on the way back from Skopelos. A short walk from the bus stop from the port. Highly recommended.

    « Not so welcoming on arrival »

    Not coming here again Anastasia at reception was not welcoming or friendly very cold personality. We checkd in and she told us breakfast times but didn't tell us where breakfast will be. When asked, she was quite abrupt.(mind you, we were speaking Greek to her) to make her life easier ?? On the flipside tho breakfast was very nice. Not worth sharing photos. ??????

    « Perfect Location and Hospitality ... »

    We have just returned home to Australia and for those pondering a trip to Athens, do not hesitate to book your accommodation at the Amazon Hotel. We stayed for a period of 10 days. As part of our package was breakfast which occurred on the mezzanine (Floor H) each morning. This included a selected of pastries (including crepes and nutella), breads, hot food (eggs, bacon, sausages), juice, coffee, fruit, cheeses and sliced delicacies. The room was very clean and new towels changed and supplied each day. The staff were very helpful, polite, caring, hospitable and professional ... in short, that is the hotel! The location of the hotel is superb! A 2 minute walk down from Syntagma Square. This is where the metro is located ... by the way the trains are fast and frequent. Also, the tourist buses are located here too! The hotel is close to a very large number of restaurants, cafes and tavernas. The food and hospitality is outstanding. We ate a different place every night ... cheap, fresh and delicious. The hotel is close to the central shopping district and the flea markets which all are open until about 9.00pm every night. If you are lucky enough, you might be placed in a room with a view of the Acropolis ... the Acropolis is close enough you can almost reach up and touch! By the way, when walking around the local, narrow streets, many ruins are still in existence spread throughout the restaurants, cafes, taverns, shops, markets etc. for you to photograph and take in the atmosphere! Overall, do yourself a favour and stay at the Amazon Hotel and visit Athens ... you will not regret a moment!

    « Newly Renovated Great Location »

    My husband and I stayed here for 2 days the first week of July and from reading other reviews realize we were one of the lucky ones to get an updated room. We booked the room 1.5 months in advance and frankly it wouldn't have been our first choice, but the higher rated ones were already booked. When all is said and done we were very happy we ended up here. Unbeatable proximity to all the great places we wanted to see in Athens. The hotel is newly renovated and our room was modern clean and fresh! Small but certainly adequate with a brisk A/C, small wardrobe, fridge and a safe. The bathroom is small, but it's new and clean. Can't ask for more really for $130/night. One of the windows was warped and didn't close properly which we thought would be a noise and a temperature issue, but the corner of Mitropoleos and Agias Filotheis is surprisingly quiet and the A/C held up. And I conquer with everybody here, the breakfast was great!

    « TIny and run down rooms »

    We stayed here for three nights. Looked nice on the photos, so was disappointed to see old and dirty carpets when expecting wooden flooring. Tiny room with a smell of dampness. Tried to change but not very helpful people in the reception. Great location, though. So make sure to get a room that is refurbished.

    « Good location »

    I travelled to Athens with a friend and stayed at this hotel which was well situated in the center of Athens, a 5 mins walk from Syntagma metro and 7 mins to Monastiraki metro. Do make sure you ask for the newly renovated rooms as not all the hotel rooms are renovated yet. We were lucky enough to get the renovated room but the toilet was slightly small. Overall a good hotel for the price of €100 a night.

    « Wonderful Breakfasts, comfy accomodation »

    We arrived in 35-40 degree heat from winter in the Southern hemisphere. The rooms with wonderful air-conditioning were a welcome relief after walking from Syntagma station. Yes, this hotel is so well placed near Syntagma square that it is easily accessible via train from the airport. As well it is near/in the Plaka so numerous wonderful eateries nearby. And the breakfasts were fantastic catering for all tastes and cultures and kept us going for the day. Polite and friendly. The rooms are on the smallish side but enough space to enjoy. We loved the free wifi.

    « Excellent Hotel in Heart of City »

    We stayed at the Best Western Amazon for 3 days in June 2016. We had a triple room which was adequate size but shower stall was very tight. Hairdryer needs to be updated as the one in our room looks like it was from the 1960's and not effective. AC was nice and cold. Beds were comfy. Breakfast was plentiful and good choices. Staff was very helpful with directions and restaurant recommendations. Thank you for Aggeliki and Taisia for arranging our transportation for 13 people to the port. Wifi signal was very good anywhere in the Hotel. The Hotel is about 5 mins walk from the Plaka. It is in a great area surrounded by shops and restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.

    « Excellent overnight stay! »

    We (family of 4) stayed here for a day in Jun 2016 and loved the hotel which was centrally located (it's a 5 minute walk to the Placa area which is the main site for great restaurants & shops). Our room was huge with a section for my 2 kids (age 10 & 13) that had 2 twin beds and a raised area for a queen bed for my husband and I. The decor was very modern and the bathroom was large with a full walk-in shower (rain shower head) and 2 sinks (and plenty of shampoo/soap supplied) - room looked brand new and upscale. Free Wi-Fi was excellent and wonderful breakfast. Staff was very helpful and kind - they kept our luggage for us since our room wasn't ready (we arrived early in the morning) and had it delivered to our room while we were out sightseeing. Overall, I would definitely return to this hotel!

    « Meh. It's ok. Will do for a short stay. »

    I stayed here with my sister for two nights. The rooms were very small, the bathroom had a frosted glass sliding door, and the view of the town was non-existent. Rooms were clean, the staff was friendly, and breakfast was ok. It's in a good location if you plan on walking to see the sights (Acropolis, Museum, Temple of Zeus, Panathenaic Stadium, etc.). If we were planning on staying longer, I think we would have paid for a better room or stayed elsewhere.

    « A great overnight hotel downtown Athens »

    We stayed one night at the Amazon Hotel and found it to be a very good value. It doesn't have great eye appeal but is clean and comfortable. If you stay here and know what to expect, it is a great stay. We would certainly stay here again for an overnight visit. If were planning on staying longer, I would probably look for a hotel with more creature comforts than the Amazon. The neighborhood is nice, good restaurants in the area and it has free wifi. One other plus, the breakfast was included and it was delicious with both good presentation and a lot of choices. The staff was efficient and managed to get all 12 of us registered and to our rooms with a minimum of confusion. There was no staff to assist with luggage. All in all, it was a good place to stay.

    « Great location, clean rooms, meets the primary need! »

    The hotel is in a great location within walking distance of tourist attractions, shopping, and restaurants. There is also an ATM about 1 block away, which is very convenient. The rooms were clean, but small (probably appropriate size based on European standards) with the basic amenities. The room meets the need, but it's nothing extraordinary. We weren't in the room much anyway. The breakfast was good with many options, including pastries, crepes, eggs, greek yogurt, fruits, etc. My major complaint with this hotel is the staff! We asked the afternoon clerk on a recommendation for dinner, and she informed us that she does not recommend any specific restaurants. Do your research on your own because the hotel staff is not helpful on any recommendations. They also were not able to answer basic questions like the estimate cost to take a taxi to the airport (which varies based on time of the day, by the way).

    « Should be 4 stars »

    Although we only stayed here one night. I wish we stayed longer. The breakfest was amazing with a super friendly staff and we got there very early and they managed to get our room ready way before check in time. We were tired so this helped a lot. One great thing is they are right next to okastos souvlaki place. Which is the best street food in Athens. The beds were comfortable. And the location is great if you are planning on going to the benaki museum or syntagma square. Great place that could easily be 4 stars. With a great price.

    The best parts about this hotel are (1) the friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff, (2) the great location that is easy to get to from the metro and in the heart of Plaka for easy, walk-able access to shopping and restaurants, and the Acropolis and other ancient sites, and (3) rooms that are clean with amenities. Free breakfast was a bonus. The only negative was that the shower stall leaked water all over the bathroom floor. I would definitely stay here again, though, the location was perfect.

    « Averages out to, well, average. »

    We stayed here twice-- the first time we got an unrenovated room. It was fine, definitely not great, but the shower was quite small for my tall husband. We went out of town for a night, then when we came back, we asked for a room with a larger shower and managed to get one of the renovated rooms. This room was much nicer, and even had a better bed. I'd stay again, but only if I knew I was getting the renovated room. Location was prime, though a bit deceiving-- we didn't realize how golden it was until we really got out and walked a few blocks in multiple directions. It was hard to tell just from walking there via the square since the immediate block doesn't look that great. Turn right and you'll get to Plaka, turn left and you'll get to the flea market, more shopping and restaurants, go straight and you'll get to Syntagma and the national gardens.

    « Superb hotel »

    We were upgraded to a suite on the 7th floor, with an exclusive private terrace and a balcony. The room had views of the acropolis. The hotel staff was very warm. The breakfast was good, although need more options for vegetarians. The hotel was nicely made, clean, clear. The location and the stay was perfect. The suite had a living room and a bedroom connected. Breakfast for vegetarians could be improved with more options. Its the best located. Right in center of the Athens. Every place is walkable from here.

    This was a reasonable hotel. Good location as it was very close and walking distance to everything. Nice buffet breakfast. Room was very small. We asked for a non smoking room but the whole hotel smelled of smoke so you couldn't really avoid it. Good for a budget place maximum 3 star hotel.

    « Oh My, Sky High »

    It was my second time at Great Western Amazon and I wanted to avoid the type of room I had the first time (see my previous review), so I went for room 700, which is the suite on the top floor. It was a fabulous price in early April but I had booked it several weeks in advance. You go all the way to the top in the retro-lift and when you come out you realise that it's just you (and whoever you're with) on the entire floor apart from the CCTV watching you, which is a comforting thought. On entering the suite you immediately notice how clean and tidy it all is. To your left you've got the fridge, desk, sofa area and TV and above the sofa there's a window with a view of the Akropolis. If you've never had a personal view of it like this before, then you'll be bursting open the champagne or at least downing a good Papagiannakos Retsina to admire it to the fullest of extents, despite it being a couple of km away. Moving onto the next part of the suite and there's a big, bouncy double bed and the bathroom to the left. It is equipped with a shower unit that has multiple directional jets that pummel your back and thighs mercilessly, leaving you full of vigour and fervour. It's a bit like a scaled-down, but infinitely more pleasurable version of 10 water cannons battering you senseless during a serious-demo in Syntagma Square. The room's also got a porthole window you can open, essentially framing the view of the Akropolis as you ooh and aah between the jets. Now, the best thing about this suite is most definitely the terrace. A sliding door to the right as you enter allows you outside. At first you think, mmmm, okay, then as you turn left it opens out into an area literally gifted with so much space that you could perform martial arts. It's also got a table and chairs where you can sit in the spring heat whilst drinking more retsina and marvelling more at the Akropolis until you wish the novelty of the building would wear off. You're outside in the middle of the city, up out of the way, yet it's peaceful and quiet despite the constant psycho-social buzz of Athens below. Indeed, one could imagine clandestine deals taking place out here on the terrace or the entire suite could easily be used in a sort of low-budget secret agent-styled film. Breakfast was plentiful, but lacked any warmth, apart from the coffee and the baby spinach and cheese pies. The breakfast girl was very friendly despite having to put up with certain guests asking her questions like ?Is Piraeus Port worth seeing?? She parried these blows expertly without so much as snort, rolled eye or counter-jab. I'm going to stay here again in the same room, not in any other room and that's that!

    « Decent and small rooms »

    We had stayed just for 1 night at the Best western Amazon. The rooms and washrooms are pretty small but however since the hotel is newly renovated it felt good. The hotel is very close to syntagma square. So u can walk down to any of the attractions in plaka and neighbourhoods. We had a next day early morning flight to Mykonos and they were kind enough to serve on-the go packed breakfast with breads, spreads and nuts which was appreciable. The staff is helpful and very courteous.

    « Great location in Athens »

    We stayed at the Best Western Amazon Hotel for 4 nights in May 2016. The hotel is very nice, at a great location in Athens - 3 minute walk from Syntagma Square, all major attractions (Acropolis, Ancient and Roman Agora, etc) within walking distance. Room was small but adequate for our needs, nice breakfast. Overall we highly recommend this hotel if you come for sightseeing in Athens.

    « Great Location and good service »

    The location of the hotel is perfect to explore most of the sights in Athens by foot.. all the major tourist attractions are within 15-20 mins walking distance which was a major factor for us. Very good restaurants and shopping areas (like Plaka and Ermou Street) are within 100 mtr from the hotel. The Metro and the Hop-On Hop-Off stops are also very close by. We used this hotel as a base for our 9 day Greece trip and stayed here on 3 different nights. The hotel was nice enough to store our extra luggage which helped us travel light for our short excursions to Santorini and Meteora.. The front desk staff was very courteous and helped us with all our inquiries. They also packed a basic breakfast for us on the days that we were leaving early in the morning. The rooms were a tad bit small but didn't really matter considering the fact that we hardly stayed indoors. Rooms were clean, nicely designed and quite comfortable. Bathrooms were a little small too but that's typical to most European city hotels. All in all, we had a great experience with this hotel and would definitely visit again.

    « Good location »

    This hotel was nice at best. We spent 16 hours traveling to get there and were extremely tired. We arrived at the hotel at 11am and they told us we had to wait to check in till 12 noon. This is poor service in my opinion. The staff didn't have knowledge or recommendations about things to do in the area and also they couldn't assist us with organizing a taxi to take us to the port. It wasn't difficult though we got one close outside the hotel. The rooms were ok. The AC was not working, so we had to open the windows. The room did however have a view of the Acropolis, which was pretty in the night as it lit up. I can't comment on the breakfast as we had to leave before the restaurant opened in the morning. It's a good location, close to restaurants, and to the city tour buses.

    « Good location, obnoxious ac systems »

    The location of the hotel is great. The room layout was ok. That's about all we liked about this place. We reserved two rooms here kind of last minute after changing our travel plans. Both rooms had very obnoxious AC systems that blasted all night long if left on. Changing the temperature settings made no difference. We tried opening the windows but it was way too noisy outside. This made it impossible to sleep, which was miserable after long flights. The shower stalls are so small that if you are taller or wider than average, you'll have a hard time moving around. One guy at the front desk was nice -- helped with bringing our luggage up and print out a travel confirmation that we needed. He was also genuinely concerned when our son's hand got caught between the sliding doors. The other staff seemed nonchalant and didn't offer any helpful advice on traveling in Greece or sights to see. Such a contrast to our other experiences in Greece.

    Originally 3 nights foreseen, finally 4, due to local strike. Good location. Very good, helpfull staff at check-in desk. I got a very good, spacious room on the 6th floor. Bathroom complete, but a bit small. Good self-service breakfast. The rate I got for that week is extremely good (72 €/day, breakfast included, try that in another capital city !).

    So, the impression depends on the room you get. First we got smoking room, witch was small, old and smelly. We changed it the next day and the other one was bigger, and renovated with a nice bathroom and comfortable bed. Breakfast is decent but the best thing is then location- 20 m from the main Ermoy street and Sintagma square. Great for a city break.

    « Nice hotel »

    This hotel is located right in the center of the city.Ermou street is just a 5 minute walk away, also there are many restaurants and coffee shops near by. Syntagma is less than 10 minutes away which provides easy and fast access to a metro station.Our room was clean however the bed wasn't very comfortable. There was a mini bar in the room and a big tv that offered channels in various languages (french, spanish, chinese, english). Staff was super friendly and they even let us check in an hour earlier. Breakfast buffet was fantastic with a great variety of options! I will definitely book this hotel again.

Finally, the people working here are very helpful and polite.

    « Great Location for Tourists »

    Its a Best Western Hotel. You get what you pay for. I'm not saying all Best Westerns are bad but they are not 5 star hotels. The rooms were small, showers even smaller, and poor ventilation. I could hear everything our neighbors were saying. The staff seem to be annoyed to be there, but hey it's cheap! The location towards everything touristy was the real winner here. The hotel was just meant to crash and sleep and go out and do tourist stuff. A lot of good local restaurants that you could ask the receptionist about and she would tell you. Everything you wanted to do in Athens was basically walking distance from the hotel location. Breakfast. the breakfast was also good. Their Greek yogurt or I guess just yogurt was awesome and I still think about it time to time in my sleep. The breakfast food was good bread was awesome and a good selection of olives because everybody seems to put olive oil and and olives on EVERYTHING. Other than that, I felt very safe there. It was busy at night and a lot of people were helpful. Eat their breakfast yogurt with peach and honey toppings.

    The hotel is recently renovated with very nice decorations. The location is in the heart of Athens exactly next to syntagma square and to the main shopping road.

    This hotel is perfectly situated for travellers whom wish to see the sights of Athens and explore the night life in and around the Plaka and the very busy Monasteraki square. It is a short walk away from Syntagma Square where you catch a bus or metro to anywhere including the airport or port. We walked through the Plaka and up to the Parthenon. Many restaurants to choose from around every corner. The rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff is very friendly. Good coffee. Fantastic breakfast. I would stay here again!

    « Great room, excellent view, great location »

    24h reception which was great as we arrived at 2 am, quickly got the keys to our room. Room was so much better than I expected! Large, modern, clean, comfortable and with a view of the Acropolis! Great value for money, though I have to note that I booked through an offer from booking.com. Large breakfast, sweet and savoury, friendly staff. And yes, there is a construction site next to the hotel (it didn't annoy as at all though), but it is not a permanent feature, I am sure it will be closed soon. Great location if you want to explore the centre of Athens by foot or use the metro (close to Syntagma Square station) or if you want to go shooping (Ermou street is 2 minutes away).

    « Just Okay »

    Like other folks who have never been to Athens and after having done a little research before booking took a gamble on this Hotel. The room was clean and found very little fault with it. Unfortunately the view from the room faced scaffolding and green webbing from the building 6 meters away that was being renovated and building works were being carried out. Unfortunately the hotel never bothered to inform me, as a customer of this. The Hotel as no bar so if your after a night cap before retiring you will have to go somewhere else...big let down. The roof terrace to the hotel is in fact a private suite so there is no access to the wonderful views across the city and Acropolis ...another big let down when other hotels have turned their roof terraces into Bar & Cafe areas. Breakfast was Okay. The Pro to this Hotel is the fact that it is by far in one of the best locations for accessing the cities shops, restaurants, bars and major archaeological all with in walking distance. Would I use this hotel again?...It represented good value for money but for the same price there are other hotels in the area offering more amenities for the same price and a roof terrace/bar/cafe. Will be trying those out on my next visit to Athens

    4
    « Some issues, but overall very good »

    Bathroom floor drain backed up and garbage can meant for used toilet paper (in Greece you don't flush any paper) had the foot pedal broken so you had to open by hand or leave open all the time. If these issues had been fixed, the overall rating would have been excellent on every other count.

    « Excellent location in Plaka »

    We loved the proximity of this hotel to Syntagma Square, Monastiraki Square and all the archeological sights. We were able to walk to all. Breakfast was great. The WiFi worked well in our room. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We stayed over New Year's and found the street noise very good. Our whole floor was non smoking which was a pleasant surprise. I would recommend this Best Western to everyone.

    Stayed in an one-bedroom room with a double bed. The hotel was a positive surprise: new, modern and fresh furniture, nice bathroom and large TV. Breakfast was rich, tasty and continuously full. But the best of all was the service; every single person was polite and helpful. They even came in the evening to ask if we needed extra towels. Reasonably priced at the most central spot. Will definitely re-visit.

    « Too noisy »

    The room was ok. The breakfast too except the too hot breakfast hall. Unfortunately the room was too noisy because there is a new building next to it and the workers start to drill from 7 in the morning. I don't know is this a new hotel or what but when you are out all night it's hard to sleep a lot. Never again!

    « Excellent, ideally placed for the best of what Athens has to offer »

    A group of five of us travelled to Athens to take part in the recent Athens Marathon and stayed here. The accommodation was clean and well presented and is in an excellent location. Really helpful staff who go out of their way to ensure you have a comfortable stay and a lovely breakfast buffet is served every morning. The only disappointing things were the views from the rooms (but it is in the middle of a city) building work next door (but cannot blame the hotel for this) and a lack of tea/coffee making facilities in rooms. Other than that, the hotel was perfect for us and we really enjoyed our stay there.

    « A bit disappointing »

    « Bad Customer Service »

    We were a party of 3 couples and booked 3 rooms in this hotel . Our main reason for the choice was reviews and the fact that this hotel was close to Acropolis and has great views from hotel . We stayed for 2 nights and the air conditioner in the rooms did not work we complained multiple times but no one bothered looking into ,had no air conditioning in all 3 of our rooms throughout our stay. Luckily we were able to open the only single window in our rooms that provided some cold air at nights. We booked double rooms with Acropolis view but the size of the bathrooms was very tiny . Acropolis view from the room was beautiful at nights all illuminated wish the balcony doors were accessible from the rooms .Only plus point was that this hotel was right in the center of downtown very close to shopping,restaurants and Acropolis. Breakfast served was also good. This was the last stop in our two week vacation across Turkey and Greece wish the stay could have been more comfortable.

    « Noisy, though not fault of hotel »

    We had originally booked for a 3-night stay. However, a friend visiting Athens a week earlier had warned us of the huge construction being done next to the hotel. Unfortunately, the drilling noise began at 7:15am the next morning, and continued loudly throughout the breakfast hour. That prompted us to check out immediately and we found accommodations at another hotel down the street. Quite unfortunate for this establishment.

    « Best Western, Amazon, Athens, Greece »

    Rooms VERY small but fair quality. No in room tea/coffee facilities. Staff first claimed this was a mistake, then advised they were short of boilers (kettles) and finally said that they thought, perhaps, that they never had such facilities in the first place??? Go figure.

    « Great location and staff-very near Syntagma Square »

    Finishing up a 4 night staff at Best Western Amazon. This hotel is a block from Syntagma Square and just steps from the Plaka. We arrived early after departing a cruise and had to wait about an hour for our room 607 with great view of Acropolis. Lobby is very nice, clean and modern. Wifi is free and was very fast . Reception staff is very helpful, friendly and speaks excellent English. Anastasia, Kostas and Nadine were very helpful throughout our staff. There is construction right by the hotel ( on a new hotel) so best to ask for a room away from that. Television has several English language options. Wifi in room is fast, too. Large elevator accommodates multiple guests and luggage. We had a nonsmoking room and it was fine. However, smoking rooms located with the nonsmoking rooms, so some smoke smell can enter under the door. I suggested that all smoking rooms be placed on the same floor. While we had a nice sitting area with Acropolis view (amazing), the bathroom is small and doesn't have a lot of counter space. The shower was fine, but no shower curtain/door so you had to be careful. The housekeeper stopped by each evening to see if any supplies where needed ( first time for this in a 3 star hotel). Got ice each night with no problem......the room had a fridge which was very nice. Safe box provided in room. Breakfast in from 7:15-10:30 and offered a great variety....hard boiled eggs, friend eggs and scrambled eggs....little sausages and English Bacon, crepes, pastries, various breads, cheeses, cold cuts, tomatoes, olives ( nice Greek touch) dried fruits, fresh fruits and various cereals, coffee and juice. Sylwia, breakfast attendant, is fantastic and so helpful.....the room ran smoothly and was well maintained. The location is great...just a block from Syntagna Square, Metro, and the Plaka....a Baazar Supermarket is less than a block away.....restaurants and bars abound in the area and shopping is so close. Loved the property and will definitely stay again.

    My two teenaged daughters and I stayed in the family room in April 2015. It was clean and spacious and perfect for three people -- a room for three or four isn't easy to find in Europe. The hotel is centrally located with easy access to tourist attractions and restaurants, and the staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is large and bright and offers an array of breads and cheeses and meats every morning. My daughters still talk about it as the best hotel breakfast they've ever seen. Good value for the money, which I'd call medium-range in price.

Small bathroom but fantastic shower with a shower door which seems to be a bit of a rarity in Greece :0) The bed was large and comfortable and the air conditioning was great.

Construction right now so don't plan any naps, mind you the Greek men always seem to be taking a day off so it might not affect u. All worked well enough in room and nice places nearby for coffee etc. breakfast really nice, not massive selection but lovely blond girl on duty and food fresh and tasty. Very close to acropolis and parliament. I'd definitely stay there again, they gave us a 1.30 check out, Slight warning - they still have smoking rooms in Greece. We got one, but it was actually fine you couldn't really tell. Make sure you check that out as I think 2 or 3 on each corridor are smoking.

    While the rooms are a bit small, the location is excellent as is the breakfast. You're only a short walk to Syntagma Square, Monastiraki, Plaka and the Parthenon. Don't stay here if you're looking for luxury or if you plan on hanging out in your room a lot. Definitely stay here if you want a nice place to stay that's close to all the things to see in Athens with a great breakfast. Front desk staff was helpful as well.

    The hotel was fine. One of our windows wouldn't close properly so you could always hear the Street. The Street wasn't too loud, but it was annoying enough. We left at the not unreasonable hour of 7am. Breakfast is served at 7:15. Would not let us grab a quick bite before we left.

    This is a hotel well suited for those on business. It's clean, has a good enough breakfast and is well located with professional staff. A couple of drawbacks: try not to get a room on the street as this will be noisy all night, or use ear plugs. There's major construction opposite the hotel during the day but mostly you will be somewhere else. A good choice for a couple of nights and very close to the airport bus for 5€ from Syntagma square.
