This hotel was the perfect ending to our vacation.

The service was excellent even before we arrived. The hotel offered to arrange for our transportation from the port and also arrange tours for us. Everything was perfect. The location of the hotel is fantastic - only a 3 minute walk to skip the line tour start and a 2 minute walk to a vast selection of shops and great restaurants. Also short walk to Parliament, park, etc. Plus it's a quiet and safe street. Only steps from the front door to our cab. The extremely large room was well furnished, awesome bed, 2 type of coffee makers, refrigerator, sink, etc. Large and lovely bathroom. Included breakfast was excellent. All the staff was extremely friendly and always helpful.

A chic haven of calm in a busy, buzzy location

We felt the owners had gone out of their way to create a very comfortable hotel, with excellent staff. Everything we needed was on hand, even down to a modestly-priced breakfast

Friendly, attentive staff. Beautiful suite. Fantastic location.

Room 203 was lovely and spacious. Nice balcony. Good breakfast. Helpful friendly staff. Love that it is a small 16 room hotel so you don't get lost in the shuffle.

there was nothing to complain about

Great location and very friendly staff. Nice rooms. On a quieter street than most hotels.

The breakfast was fine but not great.


13 April 2023


All the staff were super friendly, and the location was literally a few short steps away from everything. An easy five minute walk to the Acropolis, and on the street just opposite Hadrian's Gate so it was impossible to get lost.

Spacious wonderful hotel - perfect location!

We loved our stay at the Ava Suites. PERFECT location in the Plaka neighborhood. Walking distance to everything. The hotel was spacious enough for me and my two young adult children - which was hard to find in an Athens hotel without going to 2 rooms. We had a suite with large rooms, a kitchenette and balcony with lovely views of the Acropolis and Hadrian's Arch. Magda was such a warm and helpful front desk person who made us feel at home. We would love to stay here again!

Wish we had more time to enjoy it all!
