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!
