The AVA is a decent hotel and I had a decent stay there, but there really is nothing very special about it. It's on a street directly in the old Plaka so you can walk to almost everything. I stayed on a lower floor and my "great view of the Acropolis" was only of the wall supporting the Acropolis complex, not the Parthenon, and was ONLY seen from the balcony, not the room itself. My Executive Suite was very plain and needed an overhaul of the furniture. It had a small kitchenette and a "living" area which was separate from the bedroom, which I liked. No coffee makers in the room. The bathroom was very large but with a small shower in the corner with curved doors, which was strange considering they could've made it larger and more comfortable with all that space. The bath decor, with it's dated blue tiles, was ugly. Everything was very clean and the front desk staff and breakfast staff were very, very helpful and friendly. I did not dislike this hotel and would stay here again if I had to, I just was surprised that it's ranked number #1 on TripAdvisor and probably would've liked it more if I wasn't expecting much.
