Cute boutique hotel that we would stay at again for sure. Stayed there last year (2010) with my daughter. So close to everything. To look out our bedroom window at night and see the Acropolis all lit up at night was just what we wanted. The beds were just right. Although I left my pillow, (I travel everywhere with it) because we had an early morning flight, this hotel sent it back to me. That is outstanding customer service as far as I am concerned. They did this at their cost, which could not have been cheap, since it was one of those memory foam pillows.

Across the street was the temple of Zeus. Close by as well, and to me well worth the time and price, was the Acropolis Museum. Then there is shopping nearby. It really is a fantastic location. The best place to stay. A definite recommend!

Room Tip: Request a room with a view of the Acropolis.

Very nice location--in Plaka. We walked everywhere-Very close to the Acropolis and all the shopping you can handle!
Clean and comfortable room. The breakfast was your typical continental. It was fine. The view from the restaurant was spectacular.
The staff was friendly and helpful.

The views from the hotel were oustanding and the location was excellent. All the attractions were within walking distance. The hotel staff were very friendly and we were greeted with drinks on arrival. The breakfast was great and we ate in the restaurant for dinner aswell, which was lovely, especially with the views. The room was large and modern. Overall a great hotel in a perfect location. Considering we booked very last minute, we were more than happy.

The hotel staff was welcoming and friendly. We were oriented to the hotel AND Athens by John, who gave useful tips about what to see and where to go in Athens. Beautiful views of The Acropolis and city from the rooftop bar and restaurant.We could walk to shopping and sites very easily. I'd definitely stay again.

The location is amazing, right in front of the temple of Zeus. Just a few blocks from the Acropolis and located in a very friendly neighbourhood to walk at night. The rooms are new and comfortable. The view from the terrace is really fascinating, breakfast or dinner there is an experience that will delight your senses. I recommend to have dinner in this restaurant, the food is delicious, the atmosphere very warm and the view superb. We would stay here again no doubt.

We chose the Athens Gate based on the reviews from Trip Advisor. We were looking for a hotel that might be close to our daughter's school (semester abroad) and most attractions. This hotel was perfect. We were able to work everywhere except Lycabettus Hill. The staff were very friendly and always helpful and knowledgeable. The view at breakfast is unbeatable.

You can't beat the location and the hotel was gut renovated in 2007 and upgraded to four stars so expect modern decor and very comfortable bedding and bathroom amenities. Only complaint is the traffic noise if your room faces the street. Definitely wake up before sunrise to snap a shot of the Acropolis from the rooftop deck - the long exposure at dawn makes the sky appear this brilliant blue color. Hotel staff is helpful and polite although their information is not always accurate. We were told the entrance to the Acropolis is across from the Acropolis Museum which is not true. That's the entrance to Theater of Dionysos. Highly recommend Mani Mani for lunch/dinner. It's only a 5-minute walk from the hotel and the best meal I had in Greece.
