The AVA Hotel Athens was delightful. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are large and the entire place is very clean. The hotel is in a great location. It is a great value for the price. I researched this hotel and picked it for us and two other couples in our group. We were all very pleased. One couple ended their trip back at the hotel and were pleased with the second stay as well. We asked the staff at the desk for somewhere to eat and they directed us to a place away from the main tourist area within walking distance...it was great. I selected the hotel based on reviews I read here, and I happy to add my positive stay at the AVA to their record.

We chose AVA because of its rating. We spent 4 days in Athens following a cruise, and we wanted a great hotel with a great location for walking tours, and a great staff to recommend tours and give us advice and directions. Everything was perfect. The staff is like family. Their daily help really made our time in Athens very enjoyable. They even arranged perfect weather!

We had a short, but outstanding stay at this hotel, which is centrally located, very comfortable and reasonably priced. The staff is very helpful and friendly and the accommodations are a lot more comfortable and quiet than some of the other hotels in the Plaka area

We stayed with 12other friends at the AVA for a pre-cruise hotel on 23 May to 25 May. My wife put it best -- "I have never been so comfortable in a hotel in my life." Indeed, everything about the AVA is a comfortable experience.

Making the reservations (and changes) directly over the internet was flawless. The hotel responded promptly. Our group shipped 10 bags directly to the hotel which is graciously accommodated. The rooms were spacious, decorated very nicely and as one poster stated - had interesting reading material. The shower was a little small for me but that is about all.

As stated several times, the hotel is centrally located in Plaka and we were able to walk everywhere in Plaka and the museums beyond Syntagma Square. Wonderful restaurants were close by.

But the most important element was the attitude of the personnel. They were the most courteous and polite hotel people I have dealt with -- and most importantly, there politeness was genuine and not forced. Everyone in our group raved about the AVA.

Would we stay there again? In a heartbeat.

In real estate the motto is location location location...in this case it applies to the AVA hotel...along with boutique hotel experience and delightful staff...only one night but wished it was longer! Bravo Stavros - your welcome started the day off well!

Booked exclusively as a result of TripAdvisor ratings, and we are very glad we did! This is a fine little property, tucked away in the Plaka. Very quiet, modest room appointments, nothing fancy, but the staff were very friendly, helpful and professsional. The location was perfect for us, and would be for tourists interested in the shopping, walking and touring around the Acropolis. Highly recommended.
