My wife and I stayed here in early Nov 2011 and strongly recommend it. --Immaculate. The rooms, bathrooms, and public spaces are spotless. --Service. The staff is focused on making your stay as pleasant as possible, and they are very much on the ball. Staff working in the dining room at breakfast go above and beyond. When the staff learned...

Excellent option at Athens. Although I didn´t love Athens, the hotel is fantastic. The room is clean, beautiful and modern. The service is efficient and helpful. The location is perfect, super central. And the price is good.

We just returned from a quick holiday trip to Athens. The AVA Hotel was awesome. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The hotel was very clean and well maintained. You could tell there was a lot of pride in the ownership. The location was wonderful (close to all the major sites) and the staff working the reception always provided...

Everything was perfect in the hotel: rooms, location, views and more. The most impressive thing is their attention to the guests, polite, kind and warm. They know who you are at the first glance. If you go to Athens, please, try to stay there just for one night.

It was our first trip to Athens, we decided on AVA after reviewing TA recommendation. What we do not like about the hotel is that the bathroom is abit small. What we like about the hotel: 1) The room is spacious and with a small kitchen (for heating your meal...not for cooking). 2) Location: it is walking distance to Acropolis,...

Before we arrived, we wondered if the #1 rating on Trip Advisor was really accurate and worried that we might be missing something. But I can honestly say this was one of the best hotels at which I have stayed--and I travel regularly for work. The room was lovely and the hotel ideally located for us, the amenities were perfect...

Stop looking and book this hotel, you will not be disappointed. It is an ideal location, very good service, quiet and very clean. My wife is insanely picky with accomodations and she loved this hotel. The complimentary bottle of champagne is a nice touch.

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
