Stayed with family and loved fhis place. Ask for a room with balcony facing street with views of Acropolis & Hadrians Gate. Rooms were a good size and very clean. Great service from friendly staff. Location was perfect! Highly recommend.

Lovely hotel in a great spot. Close to everything in Plaka. We booked a family suite. It was spacious and very clean. Staff were very helpful, nothing was a problem. If I am lucky enough to come back to Athens, this is where I would stay.

Certainly not high end or a true 4 star but it was a perfect location for the right price in the heart of Plaka. There are certainly better hotels out there but this aligned with our Athens budget and had great reviews on TA. Please note that this hotel does not have a roof top deck as the pictures may...

We stayed in the room 201, an executive suite and were extremely happy with it. The bed was very comfortable, wifi was fast, and the balcony had great views of the acropolis. The room was spacious as well. Hotel was very clean and quiet. A quick walk to the acropolis, acropolis museums, shopping in Plaka and several other sites.

We stayed twice in May two nights before we went to Santorini and one night on our way back before we went home. We had been in touch with the staff before our visit to arrange transport to and from airport and to let them know it was our anniversary. They were quick to get back to us about each... More

We arrived at Ava after a long flight from Australia. We were greeted by friendly staff and a room that was ready for 4 very tired travellers. The 2 bedroom executive suite on the first floor accommodated us perfectly. A small balcony overlooked the street and we could see up to the Acropolis and down to the Temple of Zeus.... More

Staying in Plaka

Neighborhood 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.
