We stayed two nights at this beautiful central location. Close to restaurants,bars and shopping area, this hotel is situated just down town. We loved the simplicity of the interior decor and the cleanliness of the room.We will definitely stay there next time.

It is so conveniently close to everything that we could always take a break at any point of the day to go to the hotel to change or whatever. This was definitely the best of this hotel, added to the super clean rooms and great breakfast selection. The renovated rooms are smaller than the older ones but the size is... More

Rooms are basic and small but comfortable. Bathrooms are very small! Locations is perfect. Less than a 5 min walk from Metro and in the Plaka district with lots of choice for meals. Breakfast was good - lots of variety.

Position could not be much better - on the edge of Plaka and only a couple of hundred metres from the transport hub of the city. All the historic sites are an easy walk. Three excellent restaurants across the street. Room was very large for a city centre hotel and was clean and well furnished. Breakfast was good by Greek... More

I was there for my honeymoon. Hotel location was perfect, close to metra and the archeological sites. Breakfast was fine, service too, the only down is that rooms are small, but it wasn't a big deal for the affordable price. We loved our time in Athens.

I stayed 3 nights at the Best Western Amazon Hotel at the end of August and had a mixed time. This was not down to the room, location or hotel facilities, but sadly the poor customer service. I checked in late on Night 1, around 10pm. No problem went up to my room on the 5th floor and it was... More

This hotel is located in a strategic location: only 5 minutes walk to Syntagma Square and 15 to the Acropolis. The room was also nice and staff excellent, always happy to please any request. The only downside(but this is not the hotel's fault) was the big noise coming from the building in front, undergoing a major renovation; it was impossible... More

This hotel has all the basics, a clean room, clean bathroom, good wifi and most importantly an excellent location. The metro is a 3 minute walk from the hotel, as are several restaurants, bars and a supermarket. It's an excellent choice for anyone looking for a great location on a budget. The breakfast is very lack luster but the food... More

The area of the hotel is amazing. Only a few minutes walk to all the main sights and next tp ermou street ( shopping area) the rooms were just ok ( we got the non renovated one) it was fine for us as all we wanted was somewhere to sleep, although the carpets really do need to be changed.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood 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.
