Stayed here for 2 nights post-cruise. We got an upgrade to an executive suite for a reduced fee. Room was huge, comfortable, and clean. It was close to being at home. Close to all the top attractions. Only complaint was that we had to wait for an electrical adapter for charging our stuff, they didn't have enough to go around. The breakfast was plain and simple, enough to get you going.

Chose the Ava in Athens based on TA reviews plus location and price. We were not disappointed. Five days in Athens made all the more pleasant by the friendly and welcoming staff. Room large and spotless and the most comfortable bed I have ever slept in. All round highly recommended.

Stayrd here 3 nights after cruise. Was excellent location within walking distance of Acropolis and other historical sites. Hotel staff very accommodating in suggesting walking tours (map provided), dinner reservations and reccomendations, and transportation needs. Rooms large sized and had kitchenette ( we only made coffee but it was well appointed). Good value for quality of hotel and it's prime location. Highly recommend AVA

Really enjoyed my stay here... the people were very friendly and helpful and the hotel is in a great location. The street market is just around the corner, and the acropolis is a comfortable 20 minute walk. The room was very comfortable and I appreciated the wi-fi and the kitchenette. I'd definitely stay here again.

My wife and I had s wonderful stay at the Ava. Location couldn't be better, at edge of Plaka straight up the street from Hadrian's Gate - a definite ' can't miss it' landmark day or night, 2 blocks from subway, immediately below the Acropolis. Very good value, classy lobby, lovely, clean, well equipped room. Staff were friendly, welcoming in the spirit of Greek hospitality, and knowledgable about area amenities, the antiquities and Acropolis Museum (fabulous!), ang getting around the city.

Tip: Street sign at foot of street is in Greek, and 'lamda' does not resemble 'L'. Navigate by location of Hadrian's Gate, across the main surface street immediately opposite the foot of Lyssikratous Street. Enjoy!

We picked this hotel based on other traveller's recommendation. No regret at all. The hotel is in a perfect location, easy walking to sightseeing spots. Plenty nice restaurants around for lunch and dinner. The room is spacious and the bedding very comfortable. We had a welcome sparkling wine and chocolate to start our stay, perfect!
