Stayed for a day before a sailing trip and three days afterwards. Wonderful location in interesting neighborhood at the foot of the Acropolis. Walking distance to almost everything you'll want to see. Good, well designed and equipped room ( unusually, good lighting) comfortable and clean. Staff are exceptional in their helpfulness and cheerfulness. Recommended unreservedly.

We stayed at the AVA hotel in May this year. We had a suite with a bedroom and large living room with kitchen area and facilities. The hotel is very close to the Acopolis and Museum, the National Gardens and tons of eating and shopping choices. The room comes with a great breakfast. The staff was very helpful. We highly...

A beautiful boutique hotel in an excellent location. Quiet, surrounded by good bars and restaurants, and short walk to major sites. Recommend staying in a larger appartment; well-equipped and spacious. Lovely staff; friendly and helpful.

I selected this hotel based on the Trip advisor reviews Upon entering the hotel, I was very disappointed by the lobby which is done in a homely style, a cheap panelling of wood on the wall with a glittering floor. The adjacent breakfast room is furnished with outdated furniture and the lounge area is not inviting at all. The elevator...

We found AVA through Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We arrived off a cruise boat and got a taxi there for about 25 euro. The staff were very helpful in storing our bags and providing the tickets etc for the Athens Experience package we had preordered. A warning on this package - we were told the Greek food tasting would...

Everything in this hotel was absolutely great, no complaints or even small things to improve. Very attentive service, large and beautifully designed rooms, location is very convenient and central. We walked everywhere except for a few taxi drives to special restaurants we went to. We stayed at AVA in March 2012 and should have written a review earlier. Thank you,...

Our room was the size of a small apartment, our spacious verandah was so close to the Acropolis that (if I was a baseball player) I could have hit it with a baseball, and the staff was over-the-top helpful. You also could not ask for a better location. It is enough off the Plaka that things remain pretty quite, but...

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.
