Great small hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff within an easy walk of the Plaka and the Acropolis, and the Acropolis Museum. Many nice restaurants within a short walk of the hotel. Very handy to the Metro also, making it easy to get all around the city. Small but efficient and clean rooms with mini kitchens and a coffee maker add to the convenience. Our room had a nice balcony facing onto a courtyard area. Would definitely stay here again. AC works well, but the delightful breezes make it possible to enjoy having the balcony door open for fresh air. We didn't do the breakfast option, but the breakfast area always looked clean and inviting.

Room Tip: For a quieter experience, consider a room on the back of the hotel. Rooms on the third floor are hi...

Beginning with the welcome champagne AVA Hotel Athens was just perfect! The suite was very clean and comfortable, the staff was always friendly, kind and helpful. Not to mention the location of the hotel is a dream! You are in the plaka, tucked away on a quiet street with stunning views of the acropolis and Hadrian's arch... Minutes away from great restaurants and shopping. If I am ever in Athens, this will definitely be my choice once again!

The AVA Hotel is located in the Plaka neighborhood of Athens which is teeming with restaurants and little shops. The hotel is a five minute walk from the Acropolis which is reason enough to stay at AVA. The front desk staff was super helpful with directions.

The rooms are very clean and well appointed. However, we had difficulty sleeping because the air conditioner in the room was blowing directly above the bed, thus I slept with a jacket on. We didn't call the front desk because it was very late and we were tired.

Also, bottles of water are not complimentary and breakfast was not included in our rate.

We would stay at the AVA again because of the location.

My many email enquiries before our visit were always answered quickly and in a most helpful fashion. This is a small boutique hotel which allows you to interact easily with the wonderful staff and take advantage of its perfect location. The rooms are well sized with a small kitchenette.... We had a gorgeous view of the Acropolis and Parthenon from our balcony!
Breakfasts offered a wide choice of eggs, pastries, meats and fruits, with made to order coffee drinks.
Book early! This hotel fills up quickly... The secret is out!

We loved the AVA in Athens, from the moment of our arrival, until our departure, which we delayed by a day as we so enjoyed our stay here! Superbly located - our suite had balcony views to the left onto Hadrian's Gate and Temple of Zeus and to the right up to the Acropolis. The suite was beautifully decorated, gorgeous bathroom, and with a lovely separate master bedroom.

A great breakfast, excellent and helpful staff, who tried hard to assist us resolve some challenging ongoing travel issues. Overall this hotel is a gem, and well worth the premium cost. If you want to really enjoy your time in Athens, stay here, you will not regret it. The location for strolling amongst the great ruins of Athens is perfect, as is the wonderful day and night eating and shopping options in Plaka. Go for it!

Wonderful location near the Plaka, the Acropolis, Hadrian's Arch..... Amazing suite and helpful staff whose sightseeing tips certainly saved us a lot of money. Their breakfast buffet was simple and delicious. Would return.

We enjoyed our stay at this hotel, the room was fab and even had a small kitcheny area if you wished to prepare something in your room. The room had a small balcony with a pleasant view. Staff were lovely and helpful. The location was brilliant very close to the Acropolis. The only reason I am giving a less than outstanding score is because the lift was tiny and the alternative flights of marble stairs were difficult for my parents to manage. I know from their room they found the lift noisy. Also the hotel reception and downstairs breakfasting area is very small. Breakfast was basic but nice enough. There isn't a separate restaurant at the hotel so you can't have anything from room service and need to eat out (or in the room).
