I had a very good night's sleep in a comfortable bed. It's cheap and quiet, off the beaten track but well connected. This hotel has barely seen refurbishment since early 80s but is well kept and clean. The photos on the webpage do not resemble reality any more than a Pixar movie . This hotel is a time machine, taking...

Small and comfy. Cosy, a bit worn but does not feel cheap. Green and very quiet neighborhood. Helpful staff. Definitely would recommend and visit again. Only complaint is the room could have been a bit warmer.

My family ( husband and 2 adult children and I) stayed at Hotel Ava for one night in September. We had an apartment with 2 bedrooms on the 5th floor. The price was great and very affordable for a bigger group like ours. The rooms were basic but very neat and clean. Each room had a TV. The beds and...

Polite and helpful staff, extremely comfortable beds, clean and tidy studio, with a fridge, tv, microwave and tableware. The free wi-fi was working very well, there were also a free gym, laundry and sauna (I didn't use those but it is good to know they are there). The breakfast was not included in the price and I didn't have it,...

I stayed in the Studio room with my husband for two nights. There was a small refrigerator, mini freezer, microwave and tableware for two. Room was spacious and clean enough. Service was friendly. Also free parking and parks nearby. About half a kilometer from the nearest grocery store (in Sturenkatu).

If your just looking for somewhere to crash, this does it. Rooms feels a bit 70:s, small room with tiny bathroom. Skip the 9 euro breakfast.. You will get Better from the neighbouring subway. Clean rooms, nice ok beds, small tv.

It’s not in the centre of town but you would be paying a higher price if it were. Hotel Ava is affordable, the reception is modern and the staff are friendly. The room is clean (if not quite up to the modernity of the reception area) and the beds are comfortable. The rooms are a bit small but we’ve had...

I chose this hotel for location. I knew it would be basic but wanted to get plenty of sleep as I knew we were working long hours so i didn't want to travel. The hotel was very basic. The room was very small and the beds were small too. It would have been fine for my needs but the person...
