Beautiful Athens

A travel blog entry by tmarts


Saturday 5th October
We disembarked early this morning - and as we couldn't book in to the hotel until midday we did a tour of the sites with a taxi. First stop was Acropolis with Parthenon and Herodes Atticus Theatre. Was totally beautiful - the Greek govt are trying very hard to retain the ruins - but it is a difficult job as the …

The pickup from the airport went smoothly at Athens airport and we had a good run into the city given the time of day, Our driver was good, pretty chatty and pointed out some sights whilst trying to upsell his services for use during our stay.

Arriving at our hotel location in the Plaka I immediately thought Liz had done well again. The …

Great hotel in a great location with super size suite - what more could a guy want.

The AVA Hotel is very close to the Plaka, where we do our shopping, as well as being an easy walk to Hadrians Arch, the original Olympic Stadium and the Acropolis.

Even though it is Sunday we still see a few tour groups to the Acropolis so we take …

The Plaka

Love our suite at the AVA Suite hotel :) Large sitting room with a kitchenette, study alcove, great size bathroom, big bedroom and 2 balconies with views down the street one way to Hadrian's Arch and to the Acropolis the other way. Petros, our helpful receptionist assisted with the bags, then delivered a bottle of champagne and chocolates to …

Last day in Athens

A travel blog entry by ecirpnek


Had a big day walking...first to the 1896 Olympic Arena, then through the National Garden which also contains the Exhibition Building. After that we visited several historic sites and saw lots of ruins. We saw the Roman Agora and Hadrian's Library before stopping for a very enjoyable lunch at Cafe Miandros in Monastriaki. After that we looked …

    Location is fabulous and staff couldn't be more helpful. Room was clean and luxuriously appointed. Only downside is small size of shower and lack of a shelf. We were even provided breakfast at 3:15 in the morning before heading for the airport.

    Historical Traveler Reviews AVA Hotel Athens

    The Wonderful Ava


    My wife and I stayed at the Ava on 16,17,18 and 19th June 2005, and had a truly wonderful time, the Hotel and its Staff were superb. We booked what the hotel calls a regular apartment but was in our opinion a luxury one. the furniture and fittings were of the highest standard. I can recommend the Ava as a first class hotel for a memorable stay in Athens.

    The hotel is at the edge of Plaka, quiet, but 2 minutes away from the vibrant heart of Athens, as well as close to all Athenian sights and sounds. We will be booking for 2006 as soon as we can.

    Highly recommended by Susie and David Simpson, North Yorkshire, UK.

    Hotel personnel went thru our luggage and STOLE items


    Our first impression was excellent. We could not have been happier, great location & great accomodations- perfection. Although the website says all rooms have verandas with a view of the acropolis - not true. Half the rooms have a view of a dirty alley and when we were there the hotel did not appear close to full and we were given an alley room. But that was forgiveable, what happened our second night wasn't.

    A gem of a hotel/apartment!


    What a gem of a hotel/apartment! From the friendly and helpful front desk staff of Maria, Eleni, George and the others, to the spacious, updated sparkling-clean rooms, to the fabulous location in the Plaka (with a great view of the Acropolis and Hadrian's Arch from the balcony and within walking distance to all of the major sites), this is a first-rate property at a reasonable rate. The peronalized service we received made us feel like we were the only ones staying there. AVA is the place to stay in Athens!

    Excellent hotel


    My wife and i have just returned from a trip to Athens and a stay at the AVA hotel. We thought the hotel was excellent. Its location is superb, within walking distance of all the attractions. The rooms were spacious and our view of the accropolis capped a wonderful trip. The staff were friendly and could not do enough to help us with arranging trips and local advise.

    The breakfast was great and set us up for the day.

    We hope to return to Athens again and will definately be booking the AVA hotel again!

    And Its Reasonably Priced,...


    Stayed here few days in June after returning from Greek Islands. Excellent location but more importantly, excellent service and accomodation. Helpful 24/7 staff and beautifully finished decor. Modern rooms with hi-speed internet, kitchenette and roomy bathroom. Balcony with street view of Hadrian's Arch at the East end and the Acropolis opposite. In the area of Plaka most worth visiting, (close to best bits).

    Friendly, spacious, well-located


    A very well kept hotel, excellent position near the Acropolis and not far from Syntagma Metro Station (direct connection to Airport). Easy walking distance to the tavernas and shops of the old Plaka area. Recently refurbished with spacious modern rooms/apartments with kitchen facilities. Front apartments have balconies with views of the Acropolis. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast buffet a bit minimal but OK. Not a good place to come with a car as I don't think there is parking and street parking is difficult. We were travelling as a family and it worked well for us.

    Fully enjoyed my stay


    Nice small hotel, friendly personnel. Really impressed with the spacious apartment. Everything is on walking distance from the hotel. I definetely will be back!

    Perfect Location


    Perfect location, excellent accommodation in the middle of beautiful Plaka. Full view of Acropolis an other Greek monuments. Spacious and luxurious Apartments. Fully recommended.
