Close to the Plaka, within walking distance of Acropolis and Acropolis Museum, and opposite National Gardens. Transport very good, and Antiquities Museum was a short tram ride away. DON'T have a drink in the cafe in museum gardens - very expensive. Unfortunately we were given a side room looking at the wall of the building next door. Good breakfast and service..

Within walking distance from the plaka district and the acropolis. Directly facing parliament building and the national gardens. This hotel is well positioned for a tourist. Rooms are spacious and clean with some commanding a great view of the national gardens and parliament building. Reception staff are helpful. Biggest downfall is that the rooms with a great view are fairly noisy because of outside traffic so it could be a distraction when trying to sleep.

Exceptional breakfast with a large variety of choices. Very convenient location to the CBD, restaurant areas and Acropolis. Be aware there is a charge for wifi in the rooms however there is a computer available in the lobby. This was the only hotel we encountered a charge for wifi.

Hotel Amalia has great location on walking distance from all the major attractions in the city. . The rooms quit comfortable. The best thing is that even it is on very busy street ( Amalia ave) rooms are isolated perfectly so when you close the window you have sense that you are in very quit area. Breakfast buffet is commendable. Staff is kind and helpful . Unfortunately, it is very clean hotel, even carpet look somehow dirty. All in all, good value for money.

We arrived in Athens Eleftherios Venizelos Intl Airport and took a direct train to Syntagma station. No hassle (except dragging your luggage to the train station; the alternative is paying for a taxi), buying a train ticket was easy enough though in Greek (remember to validate your tickets at the appropriate timings, otherwise you could get a fine).

Trip to Syntagma was about 43 mins and as in most (if not all of Europe) the trains leave on time. We got off at Syntagma, which serves as a transfer point to the Blue Line (Line 3) with the Red Line (Line 2). It also serves as a connection point to the Athens Tram.

Hotel Amalias was about less than 5 min walk away from the train station. Location-wise, this is about the most ideal, especially if you have heavy luggages to lug around and are not keen on switching trains. Attractions-wise, the National Gardens is directly opposite the Hotel, which our balcony opened to. Somewhere on the left of the Hotel (the other exit of Syntagma train station) is the House of Parliament, with the Tomb of the Unknown Solider where we caught a glimpse of the respect and salutations the two guards gave to their lost counterparts. Amalias is also within walking distance from the old Plaka neighbourhood, where we had some fabulous local dishes. Our first night at Tavernas Plaka saw us wolf down a plate of mousssaka, gyros and the fried calamari (they serve fantastic calamari all over Greece!), washed down with their local Mythos beer. And then, the stunner. Their complimentary chocolate ice-cream. My goodness, how heavenly it tasted. Probably the best chocolate ice-cream I have ever tasted (and looking at my size, I have tasted some good ones before).

Anyway, back to the attractions, and we took a short train ride to the Acropoli station where we begun our tour of the historical ruins. You could choose as well to walk from the Hotel.

Hotel room was decently furnished, modern in design. We were upgraded to a deluxe room on the second floor (one that faces the road and the National Gardens); the rest face inwards or have no windows as I understand it to be. It was not at all noisy for us, the balcony doors were sound-proof. Breakfast is repeated on the two days we were there, but that's not to say it was shabby. Instead, you find a decent spread of the usual continental delights. Nothing great to shout about, but good enough to fill your stomach (and you should) before your walks or trips out to the sights.

Down-bit was really the WI-FI, which was chargeable. Wasn't a huge sum, but really, it's something you would expect in most hotels. If you need your hot water, you would have to get it at the café at level one. No major issues for us both, just a note to those whom these might be deal-breakers.

Room Tip: If your budget allows for it, choose a room facing the National Gardens. The tall trees out front ar...

It was an outstanding week at Amalia Hotel memorable and wonderful holidays in Athens. The staff is very friendly and the hotel is located probably at the best location for tourists. The metro station is 3 minutes walking and 8 minutes walking at the main streets of Athens (Ermou,Monastiraki etc)

The hotel location is perfect. Right in the middle of Athens. The rooms are good. Try to get a room on a higher floor and facing the park. Breakfast buffet is commendable. Very helpful staff. Walking distance from all the major attractions in the city.
