“Great location but problems”
Reviewed 2 April 2012

This hotel is in a great location and has a wonderful buffet breakfast however, there are some issues that we had. It was hot in our room and the hotel staff would not turn on the air conditioning. When the doors to the patio were open, the traffic noises were extremely loud so we had to pick between the two evils. We were on the east side, facing the main street so this might not be the case for all rooms.

In addition, a giant cockroach crawled up the bathroom grate and when we mentioned this, we were blamed for having our patio door open and allowing the insect to fly (without wings) into the room.

The overall attitude of the front desk was fairly poor and it was only when the cockroach made an appearance that they offered any sort of friendly behavior. We were even subtly blamed for our key cards repeatedly not working over the last three days of the visit.

Not a hotel I will return to but it didn't ruin our vacation.

Amalia hotel is a very nice hotel in the city centre of Athens. Polite and ready to help stuff, nice and clean rooms. BUT I find that their internet policy belongs to another era. First of all the fact that you have to pay for it (even though the price is small ) while in all cafes around the hotel is free and secondly it is not stable. When you need to connect remote to your work account to check data you have to go a well needed in our days verification process. Once the wifi network you are using is not responding ( and happen various times) then you need to restart the verification process.
And one comment for the breakfast buffet : good quality buffet but when in Greece I expect to see a more prominent presence of fruits and vegetables.

The hotel staff very friendly & helpful. The location of the hotel is excellent. It is close to the Plaka District as well as to the Acropolis and the National Gardens. Room is quite spacious and clean. Generously sized bedroom with comfortable bed and good shower. Breakfast was good. Lobby's free internet and printer was useful for travel arrangements.

A brilliant hotel in a great location, right in the centre of Athens. Rooms are clean and spacious, you have to pay for internet but it is ok, staff are friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet has a wide choice to appeal to all and a cappuccino machine.
