“Outstanding hotel !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

Splendid location and view in all directions. Exellent service, helpful personnel even with phone calls to museums or elswhere. Very comfortable rooms and spacy bath rooms. Luxorious breakfast with a breathtaking view. WiFi connections in the lobby and roof terrace and computers in the lobby with a possibillity of printing. What you don´t have here, you don´t need either !

Room Tip: Higher floors are more quiet.

This is an awesome hotel. Very friendly and helpful staff. Need something in the area? They will find it for you, make calls for you too! The room was facing the temple of Zeus! Really spectacular! The room was clean, bed was fantastic and was simply comfortable! Wait for breakfast and enjoy not only the stunning Acropolis, but a gorgeous view of Athens!!!

Location is perfect! You are minutes away from everything! Turn left outside the hotel and bear left again and get lost in the maze that takes you to Plaka and Monastiraki. If you turn left outside the hotel, about 2 minutes is a taxi rank if you need one.

The food at breakfast time is class and super! The views!!!! Just enjoy! A great spread of meats, cereals, cheeses, fruit and a whole lot more. Staff are great!

My wife and I ate here one evening too and we had the Fig and Haloumi salad which was magic!! Followed by their pasta! Super!!!

They have a couple of computers in the lobby for your access, free wifi in the lobby (reception area) and the restaurant. There are power points if you need to charge your devices and their cocktails are nice too!

There is some traffic noise in your rooms. The first day you will notice it but after a day or so you won't. It is a gorgeous hotel and has little treats in the room to enjoy.

The Athens Gate Hotel is well located, easy access from/to the airport, close to the Acropolis & other monuments with shops & many restaurants just around the corner. Rooms, though small, are very comfortable, very clean & well equipped with TV, safe, mini fridge, hairdryer & a good supply of toiletries in the bathroom. The only thing the rooms lack is wifi & a coffee maker but, no problem, a good breakfast is included & there is free wifi in the rooftop restaurant which also offers an amazing view of the Acropolis & Temple of Zeus. If you rise before 7:00 a.m., coffee is available in the lobby & there is free wifi there too.
The best part of this hotel is the staff!! All the staff - desk clerks, door men, restaurant staff, cleaning staff - are most pleasant, helpful & friendly!!

I chose this hotel on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and wasn't disappointed. The staff were all great, this always makes a huge difference to how one feels about a place.

As others have said, the rooftop bar must have one of the best views in the world, looking right out to the Acropolis and across central Athens.

Only minor niggle is no free wifi in rooms though it is available in the foyer and bars

Room Tip: Try and get rooms on higher floors for the best views of either the Acropolis or the Temple of Zeus

Very well located hotel, close to Metro, buses etc. Many sights within easy walking distance.
Good, clean room overlooking the Parthenon. Polite friendly staff, particularly in reception.
Enjoyed breakfast every day in the rooftop restaurant which had amazing views of Temple of Zeus & Parthenon.
Chose this hotel from the reviews on tripadvisor & was not disappointed. Would stay again & definitely recommend.

Great location, easy to get to from airport by cab. Amazing view, Parthenon and other well known monuments are about a 15 minute walk. Shops all around. Very clean with free wifi on rooftop bar. Staff is friendly and helpful.

The only bad thing to say about this hotel is the old elevator.
I stayed in one of the ˜Temple of Zeus view room˜, and it was perfect. The breakfast with an astonishing Parthenon view just made my mornings.
It`s a perfect location. Walking distance from every touristic place in Athens.
