“Very attentive staff, good location”
Reviewed August 28, 2011

The hotel is situated on a narrow one-way tourist street, which leads you to Acropolis. Our room (executive suite, no. 201) was spacious with separate living room, bedroom and a little kitchen. We only stayed one night so didn't have time to try their breakfast. Staff was very helpful and advised a good restaurant, where we had dinner the same night. As far as the prices are concerned, I think the hotel is overpriced (260 euros per night), but this seems to be a general problem with Greece. They entered the EU and their prices have flown up while the quality of the things stayed the same.

Superior in all respects. Maria, Dimitra, Andrea and the rest of the staff make it special. They were great sources of information as we piloted ourselves around Athens. Very helpful and very responsive.

We stayed at AVA for our honeymoon. Everything was awesome! The staff was so friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. Our room was big, beautiful, and clean. I did so much research before booking a hotel and I feel it really paid off - we were so happy with everything! We definitely recommend this hotel!

Good location, given that Athens is a run-down city, the hotel is located in a safe and pleasant, while quite area full of restaurants, tourist crafts shops, close to the Parliament (therefore easy to access the airport) and close to the Acropolis and museum. I would not stay anywhere else in Athens.

Staff were very pleasant, more so than other hotels I stayed at. Always welcoming.

Room was ordinary, this is not a luxury hotel, but the overall experience was stellar.

Don't bother taking a taxi - take the bus X95 or the Metro.
