"Great central location"
Visitors to Greece will experience a range of accommodations especially if they travel to islands or Peleponnese so a stay at a 4 or 5 star hotel like the Amalia is welcome respite

"Decent hotel in central Athens (Syntagma)"
Overall, Amalia hotel is a very good choice if you prefer staying in Syntagma. It is situated next to Attica department store, Ermou street and Monastiraki shopping district. However, the hotel lacks a decent restaurant, and the staff wasn't friendly and even sometimes rude especially at the reception.

"Excellent hotel and fantastic location!"
The hotel is very clean, very modern and seriously great location! This hotel is within walking distance to all of the tourist attractions you will want to see and also has great air conditioning which is key in the summer heat! My sister and I stayed at this hotel and a few travel things unique to Athens is how far away the airport is from all of the tourist attractions in the city. Taxis will cost double from 12am-5am and would not be a good option. This hotel is right by (3 minute walk and safe) to both the 24 hour bus to the airport and the metro that starts running at 6am (both cheap and great options). My sister and I had to leave at 2am in the morning to catch the bus to the airport and the stay even prepared us breakfast boxes to take with us since we would miss the morning breakfast. I would definitely tell any family and friends to stay at this hotel in Athens!

"Location is great, nice staff, excellent breakfast"
Wonderful ! We stayed there for 2 days before our cruise . walking distance to Metro at Syntagma square. When we returned fom the cruise they were very kind and stored our luggage until our later flight and we were able to enjoy more of Athens. Close to Zeus temple, Acropolis museum. Staff was great ! They helped us with tips ontransportation ( like taxi to the Port only 20 euros ! For 4 of us and luggage). Rooms were big, comfortable, excellent free wifi, and complimentary water and dry fruit in the rooms. Breakfast was the best !, Loved our stay will definitely come back again ! Thanks to all the staff at the hotel !

"Nice hotel, good location"
We reserved four rooms for our party of 8. Our request to have our rooms close together was honored. The rooms were nice, clean and comfortable. The mattress was a bit stiff for my taste but I'm more accustomed to my pillow top mattress. The staff was professional but most that we came into contact with were not overly friendly. The breakfast buffet was plentiful and included a great variety of hot and cold choices. The location of this hotel was one of the highlights. It is close to the Parliament building where you could see the tomb of the unknown soldier and changing of the guards. Syntagma Square is right there too. The National Gardens are directly across the street. Many other attractions including the Plaka, Athens Flea Market and, of course, the Acropolis are nearby as well. Everything is within walking distance, which was a big plus for us.

Hotel services were superb over all. The room was very clean. They had set up a baby crib for us before our arrival. It came with perhaps the best firm mattress for our baby. The hotel is located right across from the National Garden which is perfect for us to take our one year old daughter for a walk and play in the playground. The only thing was that the street traffic was noisy.

"NO customer service at all. Management Issue!!"
The hotel without any apologies told us the politicians had to extend their stay so the hotel could not provide us with the reserved room. They transferred us to another hotel - Athens Gate Hotel (emphasizing they would pay for it..- of coz they have to! I have paid everything via Hotel.com). I understand things happen. So I agreed with the arrangement though it was already late at night. Then the Athens Gate Hotel mentioned that internet in the room requires a fee, which was supposed to be complimentary in Amalia. So I called Amalia again to ask for covering the internet charge as it's absolutely not fair for me to pay extra. Then the Amalia staff said it's not required by the law!.. it's totally a joke to me especially we were thrown out of the hotel then now telling me I was responsible for the extra charges due to their management issues. I asked for manager then was pushed back that manager was not available and had to call me back the next day. We are talking about 30Euro (for 3 nights) and no one can even make decision when a manager is not available? I had to fight for myself for good 10 minutes on the phone in the middle of late night and finally get what I deserved! I will never book this hotel again. Athens Gate had way better customer services and attention to their customers!!

I stayed there 5 nights. Can't beat the location; it's 1 minute walk from Express Bus 95 from the airport (24 hours) and Syntagma Square; 5 minuts from Plaka; 10 minutes from Acropolis. If you want to take the tram to Pireas, the tram stop is right by it. Breakfast came with the room and it was more than sufficient. People are very friendly and the rooms are clean. I will definitely stay there again.

"Excellent Hotel, too much street noise"
The Amalia Hotel is excellent in all respects save one: street noise. The location is perfect for business or sightseeing, convenient to the Metro and the main shopping and sightseeing area. The hotel is comfortable with good internet access. The breakfast buffet is very good. However, you have to keep the window open to be comfortable, and that means street noise.

It is right across from the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier so you can see the changing of the guard every hour. The view of the Acropolis from the roof is beautiful. This is a great hotel.

Good experience overall staying at this hotel. Friendly helpful staff immaculate rooms. Close to plaka where there are plenty of restaurants and shops. Our only complaint was that the view from our window consisted of a brick wall about 5 feet away. We were only flighty disappointed though as we didn't spend much time in our room because we were sight seeing. If scenery is important to you than this is not the hotel for you.

"Good location, very noisy, NOT 4 star, small room,"
Excellent staff, great stay. This is not a 4 star hotel, the bath fittings are 4 star for a tiny bath room, and the room is tiny. NO view. Noisy as it is in the center of the city, which is great because of transport and tourist facilities which are just steps away. Pricey for me, but was worth it because of closeness to every thing. The breakfast was included in my room charge and was fantastic ( 20 E = about $26 pp, but was a gourmet spread!,). Again the staff and service was excellent. Would recommend ( if you can afford it) . I am sure there are plenty of alternatives, right in the area with same closeness to transport and tourist facilities which are priced much less, just need to do more research. Remember that photos on the internet are VERY deceiving! do not go by the photographs, use a map and location to add to your research. The Amalia is a family owned small hotel chain that is international and has a core tour bus/guide operation. We did not do their tours, but that is what I started out with in my research. We stayed two nights, slept poorly because of the noise and jet lag. Beds and mattresses were great. Only 1 pillow. Toilet does not take tissues, no bidet, but can use the flexible shower head for lavage. Charge for internet, laptop in lobby is free, with printer. Staff can give you all info about city and some info about transport. Neighboring cafes are limited but excellent and affordable. AC will work only with card in place, as in all Greek hotels.
