“Perfect for our stay”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

We chose this hotel because of the reviews and the location. We wanted something boutique and close to the Acropolis and nearby sites as we had only a full day before leaving on our cruise. The Acropolis gate was perfect! A good size, comfortable clean room, breakfast included, and the restaurant on the roof of the hotel has great food and an even better view. The staff was amazing! Very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The perfect location for seeing the sites and there are good local restaurants for lunch and dinner without having to take a cab. We didn't get to much other than the new Acropolis Museum and some sites nearby but I want to go back to Athens and stay longer and I would consider the Athens Gate again. It is not fancy or big, but it is comfortable, clean and a good bargain in a good location for touring and the staff is great.

Room Tip: If you are light sleepers, ask for a room on a higher floor on the quiet side, not facing the stree...

Nothing but good words for this hotel....
Friendly efficient staff...nice bedroom and bathroom.
Traffic noise can be problem... try for room at rear.
The roof-top bar/restaurant is fabulous...breakfast there was a treat.
The location is second to none...with stunning views of the Acropolis...and the Temple of Zeus.
We would recommend this hotel and next time we're in Athens...we shall return here.

I moved to this hotel after a bad experience at the Royal Olympic...... my only regret was that I didn't book here originally.
I could not fault anything about this hotel. Dave the manager is fantastic and makes sure you want for nothing and your stay is the best possible.
Food at the roof top restaurant is superb... I actually called the chef over to thank him.... have the steak!!!
The view from here surpasses anywhere else in Athens, really something.
The rooms are beautiful, cleanliness is tops and everything there that you may need.
What more can I say... I shall definately be booking for my next stay and can't wait.
Thank you Dave & all your lovely staff .... see you again soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms are great and although not a pool in hotel there is one close that is available for yo...

Visited Athens in November with my wife and enjoyed both the city and this hotel. Had one of the small budget rooms but got if for for less than 200€ for two nights (in total) which I thought was a good price.
The breakfast is really good and the view from the restaurant is spectacular.
The Acropolis and the old part of the city is very close by.
Only downside - lived at the third floor and experienced a little traffic noice.

Room Tip: Get a room as high as possible to avoid traffic noice.

We stayed in Sep 13, the hotel is on a busy road but ask for a room at the back. Fantastic location, easy walking distance to the Paka area and Acropolis, and the best rooftop bar in Athens. The staff are extremely helpful in places to see and will explain and teach you any Greek words to help your stay. Just ask them - a little effort from a visitor and respect for their culture is greatly appreciated and goes a very long way.

Only stayed one night on the return trip - but I loved this hotel. Super great roof - lovely view of the Parthenon - and it's fairly private. A great place to have a cocktail with your love pal. Really close to the Acropolis Museum (a must see), and the ruins themselves. Ask for a quiet room - you won't be disappointed.

The athens gate hotel is in a terrific location and allows easy access to all tourist spots. However, it is very important that you pick which side of the hotel you want you bedrooms to because it makes all the difference as to whether you will get any sleep. In terms of the quality of service it was a terrific hotel with great staff. The owners do need to get out of the medieval ages and stop charging for internet access.
