Nice, modern hotel in the center of Athens close fo Syntagma square and metro station. Parthenon and new museum, as well as many shops and tavernas at walkable distance. Our room was nice size with rather big bathroom, very clean. Free wifi with decent speed throughout hotel. Delicious breakfast with nice variety of local food.

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. Very close to nice restaurants and metro station. The rooms are clean and spacious. Only the bathroom was very small and not very convenient.

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... More

My husband and I stayed at Best Western Amazon during our first visit to Athens. I was very pleased with my stay as the hotel was extremely clean and the staff was very very helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel because it was reasonably prices, close to the train station and most importantly very clean.

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... More

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... More

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.

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... More

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.
