The Athens Gate Hotel

The best aspect of this hotel is its central location. It is a short cab-drive from Syntagma square, a short walk from Acropolis and a stone's throw away from Temple of Zeus. With the Acropolis metro station being very close by, this hotel is well connected to all major sights in Athens. For a higher price, you can get a room with a view of Temple of Zeus or the Acropolis. The terrace restaurant has great views of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. Breakfast is served in this restaurant, so you can enjoy the morning view. We had booked a room with view of Acropolis in Sep 2013 and it costed us around EUR 200 per night.

A satisfactory room, but very small, great central location, with spectacular view from roof top lounge. Nice breakfast, adequate but a little standoffish service overall. We had an enjoyable stay and were generally happy with our accommodations.

Accommodation is good value, clean and comfortable although a little short of seating area/space in the room.
Fantastic view from the rooftop restaurant for breakfast.
Staff helpful and obliging.
Very central location and close to the metro.

The hotel is walking distance to shops, restaurants, Temple of Zeus and Acropolis. Check in was smooth and quick. Room was clean, but bath is small. We were upgraded next day to a room with bigger bath which made it better. Buffet breakfast selection was good with nice view of the Acropolis.

Just spent a five day city break staying at Athens Gate. The hotel is a superb place to stay if you don't require pool and spa type facilities. The location is great with fabulous views over the Acropolis and temple of Zeus and is quite handy for Athens centre for shopping and the many eateries and restaurants. The rooms are spacious for a city hotel and are spotlessly clean. The staff are very pleasant and most efficient and there is a good choice of items on the breakfast buffet. Would thoroughly recommend.

We have just stayed here along with three other couples over February half term and we were all very impressed with the quality of the hotel. The location is perfect and to have breakfast in the roof terrace overlooking the acropolis is amazing. The rooms, though smallish, are very clean.
Overall, a great place to stay for a city break.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing the Acropolis are quieter

I chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews that I found on trip advisor. We stayed for 4 nights and booked a room on the 7th floor overlooking the Acropolis. The view was breathtaking. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and we ended up eating dinner at the hotel twice because the food was the best meal we had while in Athens. The staff was very knowledgable and HELPFUL. They recommended great tours, resturants and nightlife. On the day of our departure they even prepared a to go breakfast for us to take on the plane. This is more than a hotel - it was an experience. Thank you for the incredible experience. If we ever come back to Athens there isn't any other place we'd stay :) thank you!!!
