The hotel is located in an area close to the main sights of Athens. That is a plus. The rooms are spacious enough for European standards. The few issues we had were slow internet, Mosquitos in our room, and we felt breakfast should have been included in the price. We have been to countless European hotels in this category, and they all included breakfast. The staff was pleasant and tried to help when they could. We appreciated that. The hotel also is a little worn and could use an updating. One tip: keep all valuables secure when taking the subway. We took it once, and only once from the airport, and as we were getting off in a throng of people, a guy tried to put his hand in my front pocket. Luckily, I caught him. As always in any big city, not just Athens, be vigilant.

We stayed here for a five night trip to Athens after spending a week in Santorini. Our suite was awesome, very clean, comfortable and well equipped.

Breakfast was good and service was perfect. Great location near to the main sites and easy travel links. Highly recommended.

I arrived at the AVA hotel after 27 hours traveling from Melb to a beautiful warm greeting from Maria and Vasiliki. This boutique hotel and room were perfect - intimate service, good sized rooms, clean, great shower, great restaurant recommendations, etc... The location is also perfect too - close to all attractions and transportation. The buffet breakfast was excellent. I wished I could have stayed longer...

We stayed in this hotel for 2 nights on our way to Santorini. This hotel is perfectly located in the heart of Plaka, just a few steps from the charming streets and restaurants of Plaka and within walking distance of the Acropolis. We were given a welcome champagne upon arrival and the suite is very nice with handy kitchenette. There is also a coffeemaker and ground coffee which is good. We had breakfast at a room downstairs which is very good as well. They have everything from cereals to eggs (made as you want it) to sausages, yogurts, and fruits. All in all this hotel offers very good value for money at a perfect location to visit the Acropolis and the famed streets of Plaka.

Room Tip: We got the cheapest room and so our balcony faces the wall but it is not an issue with us because we...

We were given an upgrade to room 301.
What a fantastic room with probably the best view of all hotel rooms in Athens. Direct view of Acropolis from a huge balcony where we had our dinner.
We were met at the hotel by two very nice and attentive staff. We could tell from the first second that this was a great place with great people.
Thank you for making the start of our vacations great one.
I can recommend this hotel to anyone, no matter how picky you might be. It is just a great place with a great athmosphere.

We stayed at the AVA hotel Athens for 3 nights (one night in executive suite and two in a standard room). The AVA is a great hotel in a good location in the Plaka region which is walking distance from most attractions. The service was good, the hotel clean and well looked after. The executive suite is much better than the standard room (as expected). Not only is it bigger but also more quiet. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return one day.

Room Tip: Executive room is very nice and good for 3 people wanting to share 1 room.

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble. The room was spotless and very roomy, the use of a kitchenette was an added benefit. The location is ideal with a great deal of the tourist spots within easy walking distance. We would most definitely stay here again without hesitation.
