Our stay in Athens was perfunctory and only needed as a stay for the next part of our trip. This hotel is in the Best Western chain and even though the room is of a reasonable size it does not match up to the rooms in the States. The beds were hard and the shower stall was minute, no room...

As soon as you enter the Hotel Amazon you find a very small reception and just the elevator-doors at your right, not that attracting but the rooms are much better than what we expected. A good standard of accomodation at a very worthy price for such a central area! (a few steps from Syntagma square and metro station). The room...

Went with 4 friends and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights with breakfast included. We had one triple and and one twin room, I would have to say excellent value!!! Each of us end up paying only around 15 pounds per night, both rooms were extremely spacious and clean. I think the timing of our stay could be one...

A city like Athens does not require a luxury hotel room, as most of the time is spent outside, in the city. But, nevertheless, one tends to appreciate a quiet AND central location when in Athens, close to the metro etc. One can walk with the luggage (given that one can walk with it) from the Syntagma metro station to...

We were impressed, especially given the price. Our room must have been recently renovated because it was chic, modern, and decorated superbly. The rooms on the smaller side, and it was quite noisy. Then again, the location is perfect... a mere 3 minutes to Syntagma Square. The Acropolis and Agora are also easily accessible from here. A great budget stay,...

The location was perfect. Located near the Syntagma station which makes it easy to get to from the airport and it puts you right in the middle of the attractions of Athens. I also had a bad experience with someone trying to mug me which led to some injuries. But having great staff who were empathetic towards my situation and...

This hotel had an ok location. The staff were kind of rude. The room was very small and dated. The breakfast was pretty bad. I had a gift certificate for this hotel however the staff insisted it couldn't be used at that location. After a little discussion the staff made a phone call and the card was validated. This room...

The Amazon is an excellent three star hotel that is about good as it gets. Perfect location, very clean, efficient and friendly service. The breakfast is very good by Athens standards, my room had everything I wanted and though the shower was small it worked perfectly. A great bonus is free wifi connection. Highly recommended.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
