The Amazon is an excellent three star hotel that is about good as it gets. Perfect location, very clean, efficient and friendly service. The breakfast is very good by Athens standards, my room had everything I wanted and though the shower was small it worked perfectly. A great bonus is free wifi connection. Highly recommended.

The AMAZON hotel both boasts an excellent location: While Athens looks chaotic on the map, it is quite easy to manoevre once you are there. Both the airport bus and subway stop three blocks away at Syntagma Square and virtually every downtown sight including the Acropolis and museum are reachable within a 20-30 minute walk (depending on your speed). Restaurant, shopping, and transportation is within metres away.

The hotel itself is good: While I cannot say that I would decorate my own place this way, everything was new, clean, and functioning. Nothing fancy, no frills, but extraordinarily immaculate for this price range. The staff went out of the way to make our stay as good as possible, this includes the front desk as well as the room service who sometimes made the bed several times per day.

And if this isn't enough: Some rooms have a magnificent view of the Acropolis. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place to everyone!

Room Tip: Some rooms on the upper floors have a view of the Acropolis.

The hotel has a great location, however it is very noisy by night and we found it hard to sleep on the first night (until we found some ear plugs!) The staff are friendly and the food was decent however. I would definitely stay again, the value for money is excellent. The noise is just a minor issue.

The Hotel is very clean and comfortable. Breakfast is unfussy, but is relaxed and makes for a good start to the day. Staff are helpful and friendly. Great location: Bus routes X95 and tube routes to Airport, for 5 Euro and 7Euro are just 5 minutes walk from Syntagma Square. There are lots of local restaurants, but we found the Tzitzikae, about 3 minutes away offered a great range of Greek food at very good value. It is also clearly a favourite of the locals.This location is also ideal for walking to all the magnificent ancient monuments and museums, apart from the Archaeological Museum. The walk can take you through the Plaka area, which is full of markets and restaurants and is very pleasant. There is no pressure to buy. For a more varied and less demanding museum than the Archaeological Museum, The Benaki museum, just up from Syntagma is within easy walking distance and is excellent. It is free on Thursdays.
The Greek people helped make this city visit a real pleasure; always helpful and dignified never intrusive. Would recommend this Hotel and this city for a visit absolutely.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view. We didn't and were overlooking a street. Mind you, it did have a 17t...
