          Wonderful staff - very friendly and helpful. A bottle of champagne greeted us. Spacious room , self contained, newly renovated. So near to all the sites in the Plaka area -
          Great hotel to discover Athens

          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.

          We returned after a full day away sightseeing in Delphi to get ready for dinner, my husband noticed some of his clothes looked like they had been moved and his coat had definitely been taken out of the suitcase and set next to it- but we thought maybe the cleaning personnel had accidentally moved it. After dinner we returned to pack because we were leaving at 6 am. My husband's $150 leather sandals were not in his suitcase anymore. (They had definitely been there that morning because we discussed him wearing them sightseeing)

          The hotel's only response was that they could call the police. With 6 hours left in Athens, that really was an unacceptable answer. We were told that their staff was trustworthy and would not have done that, in essense calling us liars, trying to get something for nothing. We would have appreciated at the very least an apology.

          We hate to leave this review b/c the hotel was great otherwise, maybe if you decide to stay there I recommend to NOT use the maid service.

          We sincerely regret the guest's unfounded accusations.

          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.
