“Plaka Perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 November 2013

We were able to stay here twice! Before and after a 14 day cruise. First in a regular suite, then in an Executive Suite. Both were wonderful and have everything one could need. Kitchenettes are well stocked, We had are own lovely veranda in one room, and a nice French balcony in the other one where you can see both Hadrians Arch and the Acropolis. Close to lots of restaurants and shops. The staff were very attentive and had Excellent customer service!! I will only stay here when I am back in Athens! The welcoming champagne was a nice touch! Thank you!

I booked the Ava Hotel based on reviews from Trip Advisor. The comments were correct. It was a charming little boutique hotel in the Plaka Area within walking distance to all major attractions, excellent restaurants and great shopping. The staff was exceptional with check-in and helped us with our boarding passes the night before our flight. We only got to enjoy the accommodations for one night before our flight to the states but our room was large, clean and the beds were comfortable. There was a kitchen area, which we did not get to use. They also have a nice lobby area and offer and excellent breakfast for an additional price. If your spending any amount of time in Athens this would be the place to stay, and it worked for a one night stay too. I would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has it all, perfect location, well presented rooms and very helpful, friendly staff. They even arranged for my laundry to be done on a weekend which is outside their normal times of service.
The position of the hotel couldn't be better. It is within easy walking distance of all the main attractions as well as restaurants and shops. Yet it is just on the outer edge of Plaka enough that it is a nice quiet hotel.
I very much enjoyed my stay here and would definitely come back.

Room Tip: There is no need to pay extra for an upgraded suite. I was in a basic suite and it was just fine.

We stayed at the AVA in early October with our 10 year old daughter. The staff were very friendly and accomodating even when we added (not that long prior to our arrival) another night to our stay. Its not inexpensive but the rooms are clean, and although a little dated, very comfortable.

The location is great and close to most things that you'd want to see and a do for a few nights in Athens, (which is itself looking very, very run down...)

Room Tip: Street side with a balcony (if you are willing to pay the extra)

Perfect location, friendly staff, spotlessly clean, stunning room and view and great breakfast. One of the best stays we've had, everyone at the hotel was so helpful and made our stay in Greece a brilliant experience. The location was ideal, right near all the major sites and very safe. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for an enjoyable stay in Athens.

What a great find! The hotel is in a perfect location with easy walking distances to major sights -even on really hot days. The staff were always happy to chat and offer advice on what to see and to confirm onward travel details-the recommendation of a tiny Taverna in the alleys of Plaka for a dinner resulted in one of the best meals of my entire trip!
This hotel is not a flashy, consumer hotel- admittedly the breakfast buffet is small but so is the hotel and that is the charm of the place. For me, what it lacked in big hotel amenities it MORE than made up for in personal touches (like a lovely bottle of wine as a welcome gift), and a sincerley warm welcome from everyone I met.
The room was beautifully clean and comfortable and the little balcony was super to stand and watch the world go by....
Many thanks to Maria and the team for a great stay- it was far too short but I will absolutely be coming back for a return visit!

Perfect location in the heart of Plaka. It is a small hotel with 15 suites. We were upgrated by the hotel with no charge, to a biggest suite at the highest floor with a great balcony and view of the Acropolis. The attitude from the staff of the hotel was great. A bottle of champaigne was waiting for us in the suite. The suite was very comfortable and nice. From the hotel you can visit most of the attractions of Athens by foot. The price is a bit expensive, but for an excellent hotel in a capital city in Europe it is O.K.
The only comment is, that the braekfast could be more rich.
If we'll visit Athens again we'll sure choose this hotel .

Room Tip: Ask for high floor with view.
