It's hard to find a better location than this, in all of Athens. The hotel is literally a 1-minute walk from Parliament Square (Syntagma) and its subway station, 4-minute walk from the Monastiraki flea market, and 15-minute walk from the Acropolis. The hotel has recently been renovated. Beautiful lobby, nice elevator, and the room was very nice as well. Quite... More

If you are only in athens for a few days, then this is fine. The rooms are small and basic, my shower was very very tiny and one needs to be a contortionist to reach the toilet paper ,,, BUT it's only 10mins from the flea market and the Plaka and another 10 up the hill to the Acropolis or... More

This is brilliantly located for shops and attractions, it's good value too and the staff are excellent - friendly, helpful, accommodating. I loved the room - modern and brightly decorated. The air-con and TV worked well and the rain shower was a real plus (best shower I've had in a hotel). The room was pretty spotlessly clean too - crisp... More

The location is tops. The room had been recently renovated, was of a very good size, with excellent modern bathroom and comfortable bed. Good wifi too. We stayed only one night at the end of our trip but stayed at the Central Hotel for the first 3 nights. We thought the BW Amazon was a far better room, with similar... More

We have been to Athens for 3 days for sightseeing and shopping. We had a nice renovated room at the second floor, with view at the little church. Breakfast is also OK. We definitely would choose the Amazon hotel again. Very good price/quality value.

We had 3 rooms on the same floor for 1 night on 6/20/2015. Not all rooms are the same for the same price. 1 room was quite large and comfortable. Other 2 rooms smaller. Beds a bit on the firm side. Hotel located on a small busy street, but the rooms were quiet. Good location if you don't want a... More

Nice hotel in the Plaka, perfectly located for a tourist stay in Athens. Every main attractions 5 to 15min walk from this hotel, and a lot of Bars / Cafes / Taverns around. Our room was nice and tidy, friendly staff. Only negative note: A little bit noisy if you have a room on the main street.

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood 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.
