“Perfect Hotel in Athens”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We spent two nights in the standard suite at Ava because I loved the decor of that room. It was PLENTY of space for the two of us! The room was beautifully decorated, pristinely cleaned and did I mention spacious?! The location was perfect - right next to Plaka and a short walk to the Acropolis as well as right across the street from Temple of Zeus. I had a sprained ankle while we were in Athens and we were worried about me walking everywhere but it was located so close to everything we never once felt far or had to call a cab to get anywhere. The staff was wonderful and helped us with any questions, concern or need we had. The morning breakfast was delicious! Oh, and they have a wonderful movie selection in the lobby! We cannot say enough about our stay at Ava - simply wonderful!! If you are staying in Athens, this is the only hotel you should consider.

After staying at the Divani for a conference, and traveling the countryside; it was a pleasure to arrive at the AVA and enjoy their hospitality and gorgeous hotel. They are practically at the foot of the Acropolis and the neighborhood restaurant we stumbled upon was terrific. Since I was winging it and didn't have a reservation, they converted the sofa in my friend's room into the most comfortable bed I had slept in in Athens.

My husband and I recently visited Athens for the first time. We stayed at AVA because of the excellent reviews, all well-deserved. The boutique hotel has only about 15 rooms. The staff personnel get to know you right away and are helpful and patient. Each room has a wonderful view from the balcony- the Acropolis one way and Hadrian's Arch, the other. The rooms are beautiful and spacious. We especially appreciated the kitchen area in the suite. We were able to bring back food for lunch and dinners from markets and restaurants (the portions are huge in Greece and often provide two meals) and prepare them at the hotel. Breakfasts were delicious; some choices could be made to order. AVA offers "Greek movie night"- Greek-related movies that you can watch in your room. The location in Plaka is excellent. We walked to many must-see sights and all around the city. We highly recommend this hotel for visits to Athens.

When you are a long way from home what do you want from your accomodation? You want to be greeted by a friendly smile when you arrive and feel welcomed home whenever you return to the place. Check! You want comfortable and luxurious rooms. Check! You want to be close to many of the major sites. Check! You want lots of places to hang out, eating, drinking and just people watching. Check! You want a generous and hearty breakfast to prepare you for the day. Check! You also do not want to pay the earth for the place. Check again! We had a fabulous stay at the AVA Athens and recommend it to all.

Room Tip: As you would expect the executive suite was better than the standard room. We stayed in both during...

I have stayed in Ava Hotel recently and it has actually made my trip to Athens even more memorable. The staff is so friendly and made sure we felt at home immediately. Upon arrival we got surprised by a complementary basket of fresh fruits and chocolats in our room. The room was spotless and spacious, with lots of luxury to enjoy. The staff was always willing to provide us with the best dinner tips and personal attention; not only at the reception but also during our breakfast.

The hotel is situated in the middle of the historic city center of Athens, with a view of the Akropolis and Adrian's Arch, and just minutes away from the shops, park, agora and other nice area's.

All in all, I had a great time at Ava Hotel, thanks to the lovely personnel, location and ambiance, and I can definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to make his trip to Athens a remarkable one!

We stayed at Ava after our cruise disembarkation. This was our second time there, and it was perfect again!
The location is fabulous, the staff SO helpful and our room was amazingly large.
Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else in Athens!

The location of the hotel and the room was superb. It is just a few minutes far from everything. It is so easy to walk around if you are staying here. I highly recommend the hotel. We have stayed 2 nights and we would like to come back again:)
