This little hotel is an amazing find. From the moment we walked in we felt like we were being given special treatment. We arrived at 11:00 am from New York, didn’t even ask for an early check-in. We were surprised when we were told by Marios (who is extremely responsive through email prior to our trip) that they arranged for our room to be ready since they saw that we had an early arrival! They brought out bags to our room and two delicious bottles of white sparkling wine. This hotel is on a quiet street, steps from Plaka…with loads of charming restaurants and shops. It is also a 5 minute walk to the acropolis, so an amazing location. We were served our complimentary breakfast in the am. We got to choose from a menu and choose our delivery time the night before. Breakfast arrived promptly the next morning and was delicious.. as were the iced lattes. The room was very clean and comfortable. Bed was nice and firm. Thank you so much for a comfortable and memorable stay.

This little gem of a hotel provides clean, comfortable accommodations and excellent service. The location is perfect--steps away from pedestrian only streets with lots of shops and 10 easy minutes from the entrance to the Acropolis.

Traveling with mom and teen son, stayed in 2 bed with kitchenette room for a week. Our first trip to Athens. Courteous, friendly staff. Perfect location, lots of options for places to walk to eat, shop. Easy walk to sights. Enjoyed the borrow-a-DVD option offered at front desk. Breakfast was perfect - staff was kind enough to make my son pancakes. THANK YOU for a PERFECT stay. Truly a terrific boutique hotel with nice friendly staff! Would stay again!

My stay at Ava hotel was very pleasant, I've recently stayed there for 6 nights and I definitely enjoyed my time at my room. The staff is super nice, and my room was squeaky-clean. The location is right in the centre, just next to the Hadrians Arch. Next time I'll definitely stay here again! Thank you Ava Hotel!

I stayed last February in an Executive Suite. The Suite was very spacious, with a separate bedroom and stunning views of the Acropolis and Hadrian Arch from our balcony. The housekeeping staff did a great job, kept the place spotless. The reception was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was good. The location of the hotel is absolutely perfect in the middle of the Historical Centre, in the Plaka area. This is the perfect area to stay, as it mainly has pedestrian roads. So we could visit all the Greek classical treasures on foot. Plenty of nice restaurants and bars around to enjoy great food and relax. You do not feel at all being actually in a big city when staying in Plaka. Would definitely recommend this hotel in Plaka.
