Let me start by saying that this hotel is located right in Syntagma Square, so you are literally steps from the train, bus, plaka, shops, restaurants, the Acropolis, etc. There is a beautiful rooftop garden that seems to always be open and is perfect at night- you can see all of Athens lit up.
ROOM- Our room had a huge tub, towel warmers, double sinks, safe, two big very comfortable beds, and our patio had the BEST VIEW- it looked straight out over the National Gardens across the street- amazing.
If you are worried about noise, don't be. The windows I think are double-paned and we were never kept awake.
The price is also incredible for the location. We payed the same per night to stay in a hotel that was a 20minute tram ride from Athens and there we were kept awake by parties and traffic, plus the room was small and the breakfast was bad.
The breakfast at Amalia is fantastic!!! You make your own espresso drinks, everything is fresh and delicious, the bougatsa is the best we had in Greece! Very nice.
There is also a free computer to use in the lobby that I never had to wait in line to use. The staff helped us set up tours and were always courteous. Room service did not take exceptionally long, but was VERY good and reasonably priced.
Overall this hotel is a perfect place to stay and will totally cut down on your travel time if you are going to be doing a lot of sightseeing. You can walk almost anywhere from here!
