This is a delightful hotel perfectly located for easy access to the main sites in central Athens. Its star attraction must be the absolutely fabulous roof garden on top of the hotel with stunning, five star views of the Acropolis in one direction and the Temple of Olympian Zeus in the other. A very good breakfast is served in the roof top restaurant every morning catering for all tastes and appetites. The restaurant itself is fabulous for a first night treat and is of a high standard with excellent unobtrusive service. The view is a constant distraction though! From the hotel it is an easy walk to all the main sites including the Theatre of Dionysus, the Acropolis museum, Filopappos Hill and the Agora. In the evening it is a very pleasant stroll to the Plaka for an evening meal. The evening atmosphere in the Plaka is wonderful, very safe and with an amazing choice of restaurants. The rooms in the hotel are typical 'hotel' rooms, in the case of Athens Gate, very clean and with all the necessary accoutrements; safe, hairdryer, shower gel and shampoo but no tea/coffee making facilities. Our room was located on the front of the hotel overlooking the Temple of Zeus and the only observation I would make is that the noise from the road is quite intrusive. There is a small balcony with sliding door to the outside and with the door open the traffic noise is unbearable. With the door closed at night there is still a degree of noise which permeates the room. Nevertheless, the location and other features of this hotel still make it an admirable choice.
