Historical Traveller Reviews of Hotel Amalia

A nice hotel in a great location

from A TripAdvisor Member
I went to spend a couple of days in Athens with my boyfriend, both in our 20's, and we only have good things to say about the Amalia hotel.

The room had all the necessities and was very clean. Its appearance on the outside fools you into thinking that the hotel may be a bit old and maybe not as fresh, but that appearance is due to the hotel being around for a really long time, as are all hotels in Athens. The rooms are really neat, and definitely worth staying there for the money. The service was also good. The location was really one of the best ones, right in the heart of everything. Nothing bad to say!

Good location, but not four-star

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Amalia Hotel, Athens, is a mid-range hotel which offers quite good value because of its central location in Athens, on a very main road, just a few metres from Syntagma Square and an easy walk to the Plaka, Monastiraki and the major sights such as the Acropolis, Roman Agora, museums etc. The rooms are daggy and rather worn, the beds are hard, the CNN reception very poor (no other English-speaking channels, but the occasional English-language movie or video clip on other stations). However, the bathrooms are renovated and clean. Noise levels depend on your location in the hotel; our first stay, we were at the back of the hotel with a distant view of the Acropolis from our window, and the noise was not too bad. My second stay was at the side of the hotel, facing onto a small street, and it was quite noisy. Probably would have been worse if it hadn't been a long weekend. The breakfast spread was good, and the staff reasonably friendly and efficient.

Fine Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We recently spent three nights at the Amalia, one on our arrival in Greece and two just before we left. The hotel was just fine, if not at all fancy. The staff was both friendly and helpful, the breakfast buffet great and the central location a big plus. The only complaint we have is the beds were somewhat hard. We'll stay there again next year.

Beautiful

from A TripAdvisor Member
I loved this hotel. We stayed twice on our trip and had great service, and had rooms with great views both times. The whole chain was great!

Location makes this a good choice.

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Amalia Hotel in central Athens is by far the best value for its location. It is across the street from the National Gardens, trolly, buses and a block from the Metro at Syntagma square. We could walk to shop the Plaka. The breakfasts were a well supplied buffet (even had a small one available to our group at 2:30AM) The elevators were a bit tricky. The rooms facing Amalia were a bit noisy, but our second room on the side was quite large. The bathrooms had been updated.

Not a 4 star hotel

from docsteve
The entire time I stayed here I tried to find something good about the hotel. After some thought, I decided it was close to the National Garden. The noise from the street kept me up at night. The beds are poor. I was unable to watch the TV (I wanted to watch some Greek TV, but nothing came in). I was promised I could switch rooms, but that did not happen. Some other reviews said the breakfast was good, but I did not think so. I was with a tour, so I had to stay at this hotel, but in all my 7 other tours of Europe, I have yet to stay in such a poor hotel.

Great location

from trvler_gr
THe hotel is in great location. You can visit plenty of places: plaka, syntagma but even kolonaki. Rooms are old but in good condition (not perfect). Rooms have been somehow refurbished. It is a value for money choice, but be careful: it can be a little noisy. Reception service could be a little better.

Amalia Athens is OK...

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Amalia Athens is in a great spot for walking to the Plaka and other sites. Yes, the rooms are old, and the beds are...not the best, and it can get a little noisy, but the breakfast was WONDERFUL! This chain of hotels has other locations (we stayed in all but one of the others) and all of them are more picturesque, so don't give up on Amalia!

A Sad Commentary

from A TripAdvisor Member
The Amalia on Leoforos Amalias is in a fabulous location whether you are in Athens for business or pleasure. However the lobby is less than comfortable and quite unattractive. The rooms are small and have not been refurbished as noted on the hotel's website. The mattresses are old, lumpy and soft and the bed frames very low on the floor. If you are a gnome, you will find the height of the beds just superb. The air conditioning is substandard and does little to cool the room on hot summer days or nights. The reception desk is manned by surly personnel, who confuse your messages.

The breakfast was quite good and very generous but the dinner cuisine just fair.
The maid service was WONDERFUL. The women were so polite and very obliging. This is the hotels saving grace. Hopefully this small but centrally located hotel will pull itself up by it's bootstraps before the onslaught of tourist to the summer Olympics.

Great location, terrific value

from katheann
If you are looking for ambience don't stay here, but if you want a perfect location with access to all of the museums, sites, and the bus this is the place. We had a nice room overlooking the beautiful National Gardens, with a good view of the changing of the guard at the Parliament buildings. One short block from Syntagma square and the fabulous new metro stations. Right behind the hotel is the Plaka and a short walk away is the Acropolis! It is not the Ritz( that's the Hotel Bretagne), but we wanted convenience and a reasonable price and got both at the Amalia. Also recommend the Benakis museum which most people don't seem to mention and yet is a real gem. Athens is 24 hour noisy and our room in the front was not quiet, but we loved the action. The rooms at the side and the back are very quiet. We could hop on the metro to Pireus or just cross the street to catch the bus to the airport. Both are huge bonuses when the flight is at 5 am. We felt very safe on the bus and the metro. Actually, the 3 of us women felt just fine in Greece!!

Top Local Tips for Athens

Use the bus line to take you to all of the ancient sites For 10 Euros, you and your travelling partner receive an all-day bus line pass around Athens. Look for the "Sightseeing Bus" signs all around town. The bus comes by every half an hour until 9 at night. Great value (far less than a taxi).

walking wear comfortbale walking shoes. and drink lots of water.don't miss the archeological museum

Take the little white trains My wife asked to go in this little train that we kept seeing around the city, and I thought I looked goofy and my 3 month old baby is still too young for it...but on the last day, we took it. It was great for 6 Euros. It gives you an awesome tour of the main parts of downtown Athens and the Acropolis in 1 hour. If you go to Athens for a short period...do it.
