“Magnificent views”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

Request a balcony room facing the Temple of Zeus. It is stunning when lit in the evening. The rooftop terrace restaurant and bar is even lovelier than the photos. The included breakfast is a complete hot and cold buffet with table service for coffee and tea. Delightful soft breeze and view of the Parthenon and the city before starting a busy day. Front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. There is a computer tucked around a corner in the large lobby which I didn't find until we were leaving. Walk to the Plaka where you can buy inexpensive fresh sandwiches etc and beer or wine at the kiosks. Athens Gate has it all!

Room Tip: Balcony room facing Temple of Zeus near the far end of the hall from the lift.

Perfect location, few minutes away from Acropolis museum, Plaka, Parthenon, Temple of Zeus, subway station etc. The breakfast at the rooftop was good.

We stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel in early May 2012 for two nights. Located close to the Plaka, a pedestrian area with shops/restaurants and about a five minute walk to the Acropolis Museum and entrance to the Acropolis itself.

The hotel is clean and modern with comfortable rooms. Great bathroom with a delightfully large shower (watch out for the slippery-when-wet floor).

Best feature though (other than location) has to be the restaurant. We arrived in the evening and went for drinks and a bar snack and were happy overlooking the Temple of Apollo but in the morning were stunned by the glorious view of the Acropolis. I never got tired of drinking coffee at breakfast and looking at that view.

Room Tip: I've heard there are better floors than others. Our room on five overlooking the temple was gre...

I could not fault anything about this hotel. The staff were friendly, helpful, attentive and went the extra mile when we needed to get a testing kit for a diabetic in our travelling party on a Saturday night! They sourced the kit and got us into a taxi where the driver happily waited and got us back to the hotel promptly. The views of the Acropolis from the roof garden bar/restaurant were breathtaking. The location was perfect being just down the road from the Government Building and just a few steps from the hotel you can pick up the Athens Hop On Hop Off bus to get you around the ancient city. My hotel room was spotlessly clean and overlooking the Acropolis. They are doing everything just right. The evening meal there was also one of the best I had on my holiday. All wines offered are local too which was wonderful! Terrific for location, service and comfort.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper avoid rooms facing the road as it can be noisy. Rooms facing the Acroplis...

Stayed here as part of a college-sponsored trip and have only great things to say about the Athens Gate. The staff is wonderful, so willing to help with any questions or concerns. The rooms were very clean with nice, crisp bedding. The breakfast in the Rooftop Garden was very good. Imagine eating your Greek yogurt and having a view of the Acropolis! The location means guests can walk to almost every attraction in Athens, including the Acropolis, New Acropolis Museum (well worth seeing), the Placa, National Gardens and the Olympic Stadium. There are 2 computers in the lobby where you can get online for free. If you're traveling w/ an iPad/laptop, the hotel will give you 30 free minutes in the lobby, as well. There are bigger and fancier hotels, but you can't do better than the Athens Gate.

This hotel is everything a person could want and then some. The hotel staff pays very close attention to detail. Very helpful at the front desk and they offered a very warm friendly greeting to us when we first arrived. They even had a welcoming snack and drink for us. They showed us around the hotel and how to use many of the wonderful options available in the room. The rooms were gorgeous, very comfortable clean bed, cold A/C, nice TV, and the shower was amazing and even had blinds that you could lift open so that you can enjoy the view out of your room even from the shower!! They offer a free, huge, and delicious breakfast buffet with a wonderful view of the acropolis. The location is perfect! We did souvenier shopping very close by and there were lots of options close by to eat at as well. Athens was such a relazing city and the people were so friendly!! Very short walk to the Parthenon. Maybe 10 mins. This hotel must be the closest hotel and is definitely the best hotel in Athens. We hope to return to Athens again someday and will definitely stay here again.
