My husband and I spent the first two nights of our honeymoon here. We had the AVA Suite. The room was very clean and spacious. We loved the Terrace with the view of Hadrians Arch, The Temple of Zeus and the back of the Acropolis. We had the hotel leave a fruit basket and bottle of champagne in our room upon arrival. The fruit basket was so big we ate on it the entire stay and still had leftover fruit. The staff was very friendly in letting us know they were there for us if we needed them but also did not pester us constantly. They had a wonderful list of restaurants that previous guests had recommended. I found that after having read books and websites the best two ways to find great food were the hotels' lists and tripadvisor. Just ignore the travel books. The location of the hotel was wonderful, so so close to the metro and within walking distance of everything in the Plaka. I would definitly stay here again.

We were very pleased with Ava Hotel! Our apartment room was very spacious and clean and the amenities were excellent. The hotel is near everywhere you need to go in Athens (Plaka, Acropolis, Zeus Temple etc). The hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful in giving us tips on places to visit and restaurant.! I would definitely stay here if I return one day to Athens!
To reach the hotel we took the metro to Acropolis station (change at Syntagma Square). From there it was a 3 minutes walk to AVA.

Overall, a above average experience.

* Very nice people working there
* Ample space in hotel room
* Includes a small kitchen
* Great location - lots of tourist shops and attractions.

The rooms could use some spicing up but that's being very nit picky. I chose this place based on proximity and the pictures posted on this site - clean and simple.

My husband and I stayed at the AVA for 3 nights following a cruise in October. We enjoyed everything about this hotel. The location could not have been better for exploring the historic sites in Athens. Staff were very friendly. The room was large, nicely decorated, comfortable, very clean and quiet. The small balcony overlooking a courtyard and the kitchenette were both nice to have. There were guidebooks in the room that were interesting and helpful, as well as a larger collection of guidebooks in the computer room in the lobby. Having free internet access for our laptop was a nice bonus.

It's hard to imagine a better location .... walking out the front door of the hotel and seeing Hadrian's Arch to the left and the Acropolis to the right was amazing.

I would highly recommend AVA.

I cannot say enough about the excellent service at the Ava Hotel,. The initial booking emails, which were promply answered, day trips pre-booked for us. The wonderful friendly reception when booking in, the complimentary champagne and the continued help from the reception desk staff for any questions we might have, and helping us with our ongoing flights after our stay in Athens. The buffet breakfast was excellent,one of the best we have had, and really friendly service from the kitchen staff, who would offer us fresh squeezed orange juice each morning. The beds are very comfortable, hot water for showers and rooms that are very clean and well maintained by the room staff, we could not have asked for any more and thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. It is within easy walking distance of all the main sites.We would certainly stay there again if we were in Athens and would highly recommend it to anyone travelling there.

My white sports shirt was stolen during our stay. Upon checkout, I was asked to fill out a survey about the hotel and the staff tried to pressure me into filling out all excellent answers even though she knew that my shirt was missing. It was very strange. Be careful with your belongings.

We regret the comments of this guest. We are a small family-run hotel, where trustworthy, loyalty and commitment are common shared values. All of us are devastated to read such an unfounded accusation. First of all we did not have any guest staying with us who reported that a white T-shirt had been stolen. Surprisingly we learned about it through this review. Secondly, the accusation about our staff pressurising the guest for a good Guest Feedback Form is entirely false, unfounded and nonsensical. The Guest Feedback Forms are available to our Guests in their rooms and at other points. It is up to the guest to fill in a form or not, at the guest's privacy and time. How can a guest feel pressurised?? Needless to say that we value all the comments of our guests, positive and negative, as this helps us to keep up our standards. We have written to this reviewer for clarification, but received no response…..
