To be quite honest, even if I disregard the fact that they kicked us out onto the street our last night there, I would consider the Ava Hotel to be "just ok."
We originally booked the Ava Hotel for one night. We then decided to stay two and emailed the hotel back requesting a second night. They responded that they would have to change us to a different room if we stayed another night. We responded that it would be fine and asked for directions. They final email from the hotel listed the directions.
On the second day of our stay, we were walking around the Plaka, and received a phone call requesting that we move out stuff out of the hotel room immediately. Confused, we returned to the hotel to find out that because they never responded with an exact confirmation number, we did not have a room booked for that night.
We ended up staying at another hotel (the Royal Olympic) that night which was phenomenal. It put the Ava to shame. Then on our return to Athens before flying back to the states, we stayed at another hotel (Electra Palace) which, again, was 10 times better than Ava.
All-in-all, I wouldn't recommend the Ava Hotel. It's not worth it, and you can do much much better.
