“Awesome Hotel!”
Reviewed 18 January 2013

This hotel is on par with VEGAS. Yes, I live in Los Angeles, born and raised So Cal boy, so I know all there is about Vegas. Anyway the in room amenities are awesome, but don't expect much from the outside or lobby.

We did upgrade when we got here to the room with a view and the double door suite... so maybe thats the difference. The upgrade price was only $10 extra Euros a night once including the free breakfast for two!

The location is awesome. All Greece travelers should be aware that this isn't your typical Parisian trip. But if you are going to Greece, this is the hotel to stay in for sure!

This hotel truly deserves the high ranking it has on Tripadvisor. Of the few hundred hotels I have previously visited in more than fifty different countries around the world I cannot recall ever meeting a staff as friendly as the one at AVA Hotel. Normally I prefer big hotels of high standard where everything runs smooth and a wide variety of services can be provided, but in this case trading for a smaller and charming hotel is well worth it. I can highly recommend this hotel - especially for a romantic getaway.

Second visit here over a period of one year and staff remain attentive and pleasant, accommodating. Room service was good, and clean. Hotel has sink, plates, and fridge. Breakfast was 12 Euros extra per person.

Room Tip: The rooms with a view of Hadrian's wall may be a bit deceiving - they only have a view if you go...

I stayed one night at AVA Hotel after disembarking from a cruise. The hotel was very clean, quiet, friendly, accommodating. The room, for three, was quite large, with a kitchenette, coffee, refrig, dishes. The location was fabulous, as we were able to walk to all the historical areas, as well as the Plaka was right around the corner for shopping and restaurants. We did not have their breakfast as we left too early. I would defintely stay here again!

Room Tip: I think you pay more for a room with a view. But the view is right out the front door.

From the moment our taxi pulled up in front of the AVA, we loved our stay at this wonderful hotel.We were greeted with very warm welcomes - a staff member even come out to the street to help with bags. It was as if they were waiting for us to arrive. When we were escorted to our room, our jaws dropped. We were presented with a gorgeous suite, with separate living room and kitchenette. It had high ceilings, crown moldings, chandeliers, a large blue and white marble bathroom, that featured a classical scene painted on the recessed ceiling. The bedroom was spacious with double dark wood doors and a real king-size luxurious bed. TV's in both rooms, and climate control units in each room. It was still very warm in Athens (25C), so we were delighted with the air conditioning. Our balcony looked on the lovely quiet street as well as the Acropolis walls and Hadrian's Arch a half block in either direction. Amazing. The room service menu and food was wonderful - not to mention the bottle of bubbly that was presented to us as a welcome. So thoughtful. In fact everything at the AVA is done thoughtfully. They truly think of absolutely everything to make this your home away from home, but I call it heaven on earth. The breakfast includes everything you would ever want. Plus, with all these wonderful comforts and amenities you have the warm, gracious, and helpful staff. They go out of their way to make sure you have everything you want and more. We highly recommend the AVA - heaven on earth (or at least in Athens)! Thank you to all at the AVA for our wonderful stay. We would return in a heartbeat.

Arrived in Athens not sure what to expect, but, the Ava was excellent in all respects. We chose it based on the location and TA reviews and we were not disappointed. The staff were friendly and helpful and able to advise on many things. The location couldn't be better - being 5 mins from the new Acropolis museum, 10 mins from the Acropolis and 10 mins in the other direction from the main Square. I can't comment on the breakfast as we didn't have it (too lazy!)

Room Tip: We stayed in Room 202 which has a separate bedroom and I highly recommend it. It was on the street...

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.
