Based on other other reviews, we were expecting more than the usual closet-size hotel room but the room (#204) at AVA Hotel far exceeded our expectations. It was so nice not to have to be falling over luggage (and each other!). A very sweet young lady, Mina, greeted us with great enthusiasm and bent over backwards to ensure that all our needs were met. The location of the hotel is wonderful -- restaurants, attractions and shopping all within a short walk. When the hotel emailed us in advance, asking if we would like for them to provide a private car service, we went back and forth on whether it would be worth the additional euros (about 15, I think). We finally decided to splurge ~ so glad we did. Yanni was terrific. His car was immaculate, not even a whiff of cigarette smoke; he provided us with cold bottles of water; and his English was far better than almost any other driver we've used. I believe he has some sort of agreement with the AVA hotel so thought it was worth mentioning in this review. Lastly, breakfast -- while not extraordinary -- was served in a nice room adjacent to the lobby by a pleasant young lady who was always ready with coffee refills. I can't image that we would ever stay anywhere else when we next visit Athens.
