This hotel is in a very convenient location in the heart of the city. I only spent one night, but people have been very helpful and kind and the Ron was clean. Nice breakfast. I'd love to go back again.

Athens Gate is a good hotel; clean rooms with wooden floors, mineral water offered etc. The view from the roof top restaurant, where also the breakfast is taken, is unique. Breakfast is good with Greek specialities and good coffee. Staff is friendly and helpful. On the downside, it can be a bit noisy with the heavy traffic in the main...

We stayed here for a long weekend in Jan. The location is excellent to see all the sights of Athens. The breakfast was great also and the views from the rooftop were superb! The room was clean and spacious! Lastly, the staff were all super friendly and very attentive! Highly recommended and would definitely return.

A very nice accomadation located close all various attractions of Athens. The breakfast was included in the price and the roof garden restaurant provided excellent views. The check out time was convenient being midday. The hotel provided a cab to the airport at a set price which was of good value and convenient.

A very easy hotel to find. What you save on taxis you can spend at the roof top bar. And the view is worth it. Spectacular. I picked this hotel because of VIP connection and it did not disappoint. We were welcome with a bottle of wine, snacks, a balcony and a great view of the Acropolis. The room was...

Never been to athens before? Then stay here. A reasonable price, rooms clean and acceptable, but the location is superb and the view from the restaurant is stunning. You can take a walk to the acropolis just around the corner and several other sights easily. Today I shall explore the local restaurants

We stayed in this hotel for 6 nights. The staff were unfailingly pleasant and helpful. The hotel is clean and simple. It is in a perfect location for walking to Athens attractions.

We stayed at the hotel for 5 nights and it was wonderful! My husband and i wake late and we would often arrive for breakfast shortly before they close.

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
