Amazon hotel is conveniently located at the edge of the Plaka district and just a few blocks from Syntagma Square. This square has a metro station and a stop for the X-95 express bus to the airport.

The comfortable aspect of the hotel is that it has double -pane windows which block out the street noise very effectively. Also I liked the shower and the bedding was adequately comfortable. Staff was very professional and helpful and they spoke English well.

The included breakfast was adequate with yogurt, honey, a fair selection of breads, meat, cheese, eggs, coffee and a tang- like orange drink.

I would stay at the conveniently located Amazon hotel again and would recommend it to friends and family.


Unique Qualities: 1. Quiet room.
2. Professional and helpful staff.
3. Located between the Plaka district and Syntagma Square.
4. Across the street from the Ministry of Education and Culture. We were there during the student riots against the government & the Ministry of Education in Feb. 2007- lots of riot police around.

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
