I stayed in the Amazon Hotel for one month while based in Athens for a class.
Upside: The location is really great. I was within walking distance of everything I could ask for. If you need to go further, the public train is a few blocks away and with that you can easily reach the coast and suburbs. This area is not very car friendly, keep that in mind if you plan on renting a car. The hotel is very clean and tidy and they serve a great breakfast every morning.
Downside: The hotel is very small, in all respects. The elevator can barely fit a person and their luggage. Shower is small and takes some maneuvering to get used to. Beds are really slim and my mattress kept sliding off onto the floor.
Fine place to stay for a place to crash right in the middle of Athens. I would recommend elsewhere if you like to do more "living" in your hotel rooms.
