I stayed at Ava just last week as part of a friend's birthday trip to Greece. We had a suite for 3 people and it was the perfect size to accommodate us. Room was clean, comfy and spacious. We arrived on my friend's birthday and we had a bottle of champagne waiting for us! The staff was extremely helpful with...

We selected the AVA - Athens Hotel based on reviews on Trip Advisor, and the comments from other guests all were accurate.

But the City of Athens was horrible. We arrived a day early for our cruise out of Athens to the Mediterranean. Athens was extremely disappointing. There was a garbage strike underway (appears there's always a strike for one reason or another) and the entire city seemed to be covered with graffiti. It was dirty..strikers marching throughout the city. I never...

We arrived at the AVA Hotel after a very long flight to be greeted by exceptionally helpful staff, a cold drink followed by tea and biscuits, and our room available much earlier than expected - and what rooms they were - with a fabulous verandah that was well used by us of a night. We loved the fact that everything...

The Ava Hotel is located in the Plaka area of Athens, convenient to many restaurants and shops, about a half block from Hadrian’s Arch and a couple of blocks from the Acropolis. Both were visible from our balcony. You’ll love the small, three person elevator, or you can use the curving white marble stairs if you prefer. We booked an...

Tourists don't need a car at the AVA Hotel Athens. We stayed for 5 nights and didn't use a taxi or rental car. The side entrance to the Acropolis is less than 5 minutes away and the Plaka has plenty of options for food. The staff is very helpful and available 24 hours a day. The room we stayed in...

Like others, I booked this hotel entirely based on the high ranking on TripAdvisor. The glowing reviews are very justified. I can't say enough good things about this hotel. First, the location is perfect. It's on a quiet street, yet it takes literally 30 seconds to walk to the commercial part of the Plaka; about 4 minutes to the New...

Staying in Plaka

Neighbourhood Profile
Plaka
Due to its proximity to the Acropolis, Plaka remains the area where the majority of foreign visitors stay and play. Its attractive features include small squares, some notable museums and the beautiful Mitropolis cathedral, as well as a host of places to stay, eat and drink. Its pedestrian zones make it a pleasant place to escape from the city’s notorious traffic. Adrianou and Kidathineon Streets contain a number of souvenir shops, offering classier items than you will find in the Flea Market. The most rewarding section to explore is the upper reaches towards the Acropolis itself, where many old stone houses with tiled roofs have survived. Up here you can find leafier corners and the odd quaint taverna with unobstructed views of the ancient rock.
