Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2012 via mobile


Good hotel clean and modern in ideal location. Short walk away from the Acropolis and on the border of Plakka.
Unfortunately we didn't check TA before booking and we ended up in one of the rooms over Amalia avenue, very noisy indeed.
Also we had a bit of a struggle in getting Free WiFi (quite erratic anyway) apparently offered free only to customers booking via TA

We chose this hotel because of the location. Walking times that we made:

- Syntagma square: 1 min
- Acropolis ticketing and gate (through plaka):12min
- Zeus temple: 5min
- Lycabettus hill base: 15min

So we were a couple of days in Athens, we did not take a single bus, taxi or subway

We also liked that the room has bathtub. after 5-6 hours walking on the heat, it's nice to soak in. And it's not easy to find a hotel with a reasonable price with bathtub

Breakfast and service was correct

Rooms in front are a bit noisy (all of Athens is), although the windows have good insulation. It was not a problem for us to get a good sleep, but if you have problems sleeping better ask for a room at the back. also rooms at the back and on 6th floor should have views to the Acropolis (we are not sure about that)

Romantic tip: if you take the elevator o the 7th floor, you can go out to the terrace and have a great view of the Acropolis, and all the terrace for yourself

Room Tip: High room!!! Better views and less noise

Amalia's top asset is its very central location, right in front of the National Gardens and close to Syntagma Square. We got a room with a very nice view to the city, including the Parliament building and mount Lycabettus. Rooms are very large and comfortable. Breakfast is OK, nothing exceptional. Although the front desk officers were helpful when needed, they were not particularly friendly - looks like they are forbidden to smile, in a sharp contrast with my previous experiences in other hotels in Greece.

The Amalia Hotel is located across the street from the National Park, is 1 block from the Parliament House and the changing of the guards and a short walk to the Acropolis Museum. Transportation is available from the front door of the hotel to all other Athens locations.
The hotel room was very clean; the bathroom was very nice and totally updated. We had a rooftop balcony room and were delighted to see the lovely lights of Athens each night.
The breakfast was extremely extensive and very good. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Some balcony rooms fact the Acropolis--a great sight at night.

Last time in Athens I wanted to stay a bit closer to the city and Plaka.
We choose this one, good price , great location. It is not so cosy maybe, but a good bargain for the price we payed for the room. Walking distance to everything, easy access to the airport with the buses, a big plus!

We went to this hotel for 3 nights in total direct from International Airport. Rooms very clean - beds extra large - a top breakfast. This hotel won't disappoint. Very close to Parliament House (watch those riots - but we didn't see any), easy walk to Syntagma Square Railway Station. Here is what you need to know. Arrive at Athens International Airport - follow signs to the Metro Station and get tickets to Syntagma Square Station. Will cost you approx 7 euros. Once at Station you will come up at Syntagma Square. Walk up towards Parliament House - turn right and go approx 1 block to Amalia. Also in area is a big McDonalds (for free WI-FI). For you coffee fix (Western style) - there is a Costa Coffee close by. From Amalia you can walk to most of Athens attractions. Also alot of tour companies will leave from Amalia - so if you want some tours - chances are they will pick-up from Amalia. I know Go Tours do. Good park opposite. We didn't see any political problems at all in Athens. The Amalia seems to be in a very good area. You will feel safe here

We spent 2 nights at the hotel in mid-September and found it really nice. Our room wasn’t too big and the bathroom was tiny but both were clean and modern. The buffet breakfast was really good. The hotel is really close to any major attraction in Athens and the Plaka which has tons of places to eat, shop etc. It’s also 2 minutes from the Syntagma metro station that can take you straight to the airport. We had some weird things around our room that we weren’t informed about: the AC doesn’t work if the window is open and there were some switches that aren’t connected to anything and confused us at first. Other than that we had a very nice experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that doesnt face Amalias avenue!
