3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Though location is good, it's an economical hotel or family hotel. All the amenities are three star and its if no luxury or high standard of a four star hotel. Service is not a problem but to add a bed is 100 dollars in a star hotel is not right.

Historic area great to be in, but also am area bordering the Arab slums, not to be wandering in low lit streets at night! Go to south Athens, furring the off season period excellent hotels cheap!! Your also right by great beaches such as Kalamaki, Paleo Faliro down to Voula, and the top Vouliagmeny, awesome!!

We stayed at the Ava for 2 days wanting to see the Acropolis area before we headed down the Mani peninsula. The Ava is centrally located in the Plaka area, off of the main street. Very quiet, the deluxe room was clean, spacious and the service was excellent. Would stay here again and recommend the property to other people.

My husband and I stayed at AVA for the first and the last night of our honeymoon. When we first arrived, we were greeted by a friendly staff. They upgraded us to a spacious suite that looked out to the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus because of our honeymoon. Everything was so tastefully decorated and the staff was extremely... More

We booked this hotel based on the number of great reviews and locations, and I have to say we didn't go wrong!

This hotel tries extremely hard to keep a high rating and has numerous TA awards in their lobby. This is a 3 to 3.5 star hotel based on my experiences and ratings. The highlights are: 1. Location - very close to the Acropolis and great restaurants. 2. Entertainment - they have free DVD's and will go out of their way... More

Suite was large, clean, trendy, had a kitchen and bed comfortable. Staff friendly and reception open 24 hours I think. Walk to almost everything. Lift is very small and air conditioning was a bit noisy but otherwise perfect. Would recommend and would return.

The AVA Hotel is situated in the heart of Athens on the edge of Plaka, within view of the Arch of Hadrian and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. It's approximately 5-10 minutes on foot from Syntagma Square and 10 minutes or so to the Acropolis. The hotel itself is quite luxurious for a 4-star hotel, and the rooms are well... More
