My best friend and I stayed at Athens gate the first week of May and loved it. We stayed in Room 501 which was a room with an AMAZING view of the temple of zeus. It was a corner room, so if we peaked our head around the corner we could also see the Acropolis in clear view! The view alone is worth the money, but in addition to that they also had a great breakfast available for free in the rooftop garden dining area! Lots of food to choose from.

We also had dinner in the rooftop bar one night and a nice dinner in the dining area. Both were great. Excellent service and excellent food.

The location of the room was perfect. A quick walk to the acropolis entrance and temple of zeus entrance. It took us about 10 min to walk to the tram station. Right around the corner are restaurants and souvenier shops which was nice. There is free wifi in the lobby and in the rooftop garden bar. You have to pay for it in the rooms.

However if you are bothered by traffic noise I wouldn't suggest staying on the Temple of Zeus side. The view is better from that side but the traffic was pretty loud at all hours. See pictures. It didn't bother me but I know some people are light sleepers.

Overall we had a great stay and would definitely stay there again!

Room Tip: Rooms on the acropolis side are quieter.

I stayed at the Athens Gate hotel the last two years when i visited Greece.Its a great hotel, the rooms are not very big, but they are very clean , with all the amenities, you expect. All the rooms have fantastic view of the temple of Zeus, and the Acropolis.The is breakfast is out of this world, and its been served on the roof gardens. The roof gardens also is used to serve dinner, and from there you have excellent view of the Acropolis ,and the city at night.The location of the hotel is a big plus , located in the center of the city , close to Acropolis, Syntagma , Metro,Plaka . and the tomb of the unknown soldier, where the national guards are protecting, must see.The staff are all very nice,and all speak English. One more thing the hotel is with a walking distance to X95 bus stop . X95 bus from the airport only 5 euros
I highly recommend it , and i will be back this August.

Athens Gate hotel is a great choice for a short stay in Athens. It is in the middle of all of the important attractions with breathtaking views. The rooms are comfortable and the wifi is free and works well in the lobby and on the beautiful Rooftop bar and restaurant. I highly recommend this affordable hotel!

Room Tip: If you love views it is worth the top rooms with a balcony overlooking the Acropolis. If you don'...

This hotel is perfectly situated for a visit to all the attractions that Athens has to offer. The check in by Amalia was quick and pleasant.....she was a good sign of things to come. The room was very large for an European city hotel and was very clean with all the amenities you will need. As all the reviewers say, the view from the top floor bar/restaurant is spectacular. We had dinner there and the service was impeccable and the food was very good as well. This hotel has a lot going for it.... great location..... nice rooms and wonderful views of the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus.... but it was the staff that made our visit one of our best at any hotel we have stayed at (and we travel extensively). We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had an inside room. No view, but very quiet.

Room is comfortable and quiet. Service in the lobby and in the 8th floor lounge is wonderful. Easy walk to the Acropolis, central market and other sights. Views from 8th floor are spectacular. Great place to stay.

Excellent location to visit the city: next to Plaka, Akropolis, Syntagma, conference centre (Zappeio), .... and most of other touristic areas. The hotel is located at a busy street, but just arround the corner start the pedestrian streets of the marvelous Plaka district.
The hotal has very nice rooms with terraces. Best view is on the rooftop restaurant (akropolis and temple of Olympian Zeus). Also staff is very helpfull and nice.
Easy to get there (Metro to Syntagma is faster than bus X95).

Room Tip: The best view is of course at the back (Akropolis), but only on the 7th floor (but you pay a lot for...
