Best Western Amazon Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 April 2012

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 the hotel, and the upper rooms have an excellent view of Acropolis. Really all that is needed, and a reasonable price, too!

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 Amazon Hotel will not disappoint for the price.

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 keen to help out in anyway made such a big difference.
Postives:
- Location
- Female staff
- Price
- Stylish room (although I did get a peak at the other rooms on level 6 when the cleaners kept the doors opened and mine was the only one that was designed this way).
- Free wifi, unlike some of the other more expensive places.
Negatives:
- Does get noisy at night and there is a church downstairs which gets noisy with chanting in the mornings

Room Tip: I stayed in room 605.

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 was worth 50 euros (price with my gift certificate) not the 100 euros the room actually costs. I am glad we only had booked one evening.

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.
