very cozy hotel appr. 10-15 minutes from the centre by public transport. (in fact, if one goes by tram, it will make 15 minutes, but if to take metro and then the same tram - will make 10 minutes).
The hotel is located in residental area, very quite and nice.
We stayed at a double room. Room was clean, renovated, with a good bathroom. Big TV, wide beds with linen and 2 towels for each guest.
Buffet breakfast was above my expectations.
I consider this hotel to be the best option for private tourists.. it is much better than to share bathroom with other guests in hostels..here you have a small private spot in the urban environment.
In my opinion, it is the best choice for a budget stay.

We stayed in the Hotelli AVA for one night, and were very impressed with how CLEAN and quiet it was, the beds were very comfortable, the showers were hot, and the self-serve buffet breakfast provided, was as much as you wanted to eat with something to suit everyone; the staff were friendly and very helpful.

Obviously it is not a 5 star hotel, it is basic accomodation, but as I said before it was very clean, and the prices very good, especially if you were going to stay for a weekend. My husband and I will definately be going back to stay there again, and probably take the kids next time as a 3 roomed, 6 bedded appartment was only 117E for the night.

Stayed February 2006

Avva Hotel is not really a hotel , it is hostel or dormitory with very modest accomodation. I think that people may be mistaken to pick this accomodation and to rely on this place to rest and to be in comfort.
There was no room service, no cleaning, no bathtub. Furtniture, bathroom etc - all is so cheap that the price per room should be 10 euro at the most.
It is very far from the city center, so it is worth to stay in the center with 20 euro price difference comparing to the SAS for example. The rate I took Avva was 63 EUR per night.
I would not recommend a breakfast there too. The area is quite boring to spend even an hour.
Please, think twice deciding on the stay with this dormitory.
