Acropolis at one end of the street and the temple of Zeus at the other - location couldn't be better. Nice room and very clean. The breakfast is excellent and all the staff were friendly and helpful. There is room service but no restaurant for evening meals. However you're right in the centre of the old city and there's a... More

Couldn't ask for better location. Close to everything that you need to be in Athens. We upgraded to a suite which had a mini kitchen and lounge room..Breakfast was lovely. Hotel arranged a car for us for airport pickup.

We stayed for 3 nights in July following a week's sailing in the Argolic Sea. We had booked an executive suite (room 103) with views of the Acropolis and Hadrian's Arch. The hotel is charming, the staff are excellent, the location is perfect, the suite was a good size and the view from the balcony was all that was promised.... More

I only had one night here but from the moment I was greeted at the door by Petros I knew it was a good decision to stay here. It is a small boutique hotel within easy walking distance to Hadrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. It is also close to so many cafés and restaurants that you really... More

I didn’t have high expectations about Athens city center in terms of lodging and food …. but I was wrong ! The Ava hotel is the perfect place to tour the Plaka area, the new Acropolis Museum (terrific), the Acropolis itself, the Agora (awesome, Socrates walked and teached there…) ; the other interesting museums are somewhat further away (like the...

Wonderful hotel to stay in Athens. VERY friendly staff. They suggested some great restaurants within walking distance. In fact, everything is in walking distance. We would definitely stay here again. Rooms were very spacious and nice. You can or cannot get your room with the breakfast but we chose to wonder around to some of the little places close by.

From the opening of the door when we arrived to finding us the best restaurants in Athens nothing was beyond the staff and facilities of this hotel. The location was perfect and in walking distance to everything you wanted to see and do. The staff were so accommodating and helpful we just loved it and are coming back....very soon....

This hotel is located in the heart of the plaka- right next to Hadrians Arch and walkable to the Acropolis and numerous restaurants. We also walked to Syntagma sq quite easily ( we are a fairly active couple in our high 40's) We did not get breakfast at the hotel, rather just walk out and there are a bunch of... More

We visited the web-site and selected this hotel based partially on the photos of its proximity to the Acropolis and Hadrians arch/Temple of Zeus. When we arrived we upgraded to the 3rd floor which has a balcony and it was worth the nominal increase in price. We also booked the hotel through their web-site. The property was unbelievably close to... More
