“excellent location and friendly staff”
Reviewed 5 January 2012

Beautiful views of the Acropolis from their rooftop restaurant (where breakfast is served everyday). we booked opera tickets online and the hotel staff was very friendly by calling the opera several times to check some details. You are at a walking distance from attractions, nice restaurants and an excellent jazz bar in the area (Half note jazz bar), and has a subway close to the hotel, in case you need to take it. It is easy to find as it is close to Acropolis and infront of Zeus Temple. The rooms are clean and nice, and some have views of the Zeus temple and others of the Acropolis. This is a specially nice view at night when attractions are illuminated.

Room Tip: ask for a room with views to the acropolis.

A warm welcome greets you as you enter. Questions and quieres answered promptly and with a smile. We were booked on a very good short break deal so did not expect room with view. Room and service up to high standard with everything that you would expect from 4 star Hotel. Excellant postion for transport to and from airport, and within easy walking distance of major attractions. If possible get a private guide for the New Acropolis musuem and the the Acroplolis, So much more informatioin then doing it on your own. Great selection of restaurant and bars in the Plaka district, adjacent to the hotel. Breakfast in the Roof Garden Restaurant is like sitting in a glass bowl not believing what you can see, to one side the Acropolis, to the other Lycabettus Hill and then Fillpappos Hill and everything else inbetween. History on a plate! And the service is there is match.Good breakfast selection , hot and cold, and you are not pushed to leave your view. Every table has a view of one monument or another. If you just want a drink pre dinner then the bar is also situated there and we enjoyed the views all lite up. Thank you Athens Gate for making our stay so enjoyable.

Room Tip: Our rooms were looking into a shaft. No problem for us.As we enjoyed the views from elsewhere

The Athens Gate Hotel was wonderful! My husband and I stayed here on the first leg of our honeymoon trip...the week of a few strikes throughout Athens in October. Well, aside from a fabulous dinner in the rooftop restaurant, wonderful continental breakfasts up there, and the phenomenal view from every angle of the hotel, the staff is fantastic. From Athens we had plans to fly to Crete, but the day we were meant to leave there was an air traffic controller strike. I ran down to the lobby to secure another night in the hotel, and they not only booked us for the same room we were in, but they even arranged a shuttle to the airport at 3am the next morning so we could get to the airport without issue (there were also transit strikes). When they reinstated our original flight to Crete, the hotel was great with cancelling our extra night at the hotel and arranging a new shuttle for us. They were amazingly helpful. Plus, the hotel is in a location that makes all of the sites of Athens easily accessible. No need to hop on the Metro...you can walk! We would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: You can see the Acropolis from one side of the hotel, and the Temple of Olympian Zeuss from the othe...

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.
