Athens Gate was a really great part of our short stay in Athens. As numerous reviews have already pointed out this is very close to all the main historical sites in Athens and the view from the roof top bar and restaurant are stunning. We went out for an explore on our first evening and had a so so Greek meal whilst out and about but then booked a table for the last night at the Hotel. Wish we had done this for both nights as the Hotel's meal was excellent and very reasonably priced when you factor in the quality and location.
Would whole heatedly recommend this hotel to others. The room itself was very clean and contemporary with an excellent shower and constant air con, thank goodness and the staff were very polite and helpful. Athens itself is very busy and hot but easy to get around and buzzing with life. A very pleasant get away.

Room Tip: Wifi worked fine in the restaurant

Due to trip timing and planning I had to stay here on my last night of our trip. Hind sight being 20/20 I wish I would have stayed here the whole time. The views, the room, the service was twice that of the 5-star we were in. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you to the desk personnel as well. I hope to get to visit again someday and if I do, I will stay at The Athens Gate Hotel!! The ONLY reasons I give it a 4 and not a 5 are that we didn't eat here so I cannot judge that and the free wifi is limited to the bar and lobby.

Well located with great views. The rooms were pleasant and the balconies looked over many Athens landmarks. A mid-evening drink at the rooftop bar, complete with free wifi gave us the chance to post some early pix of floodlit temples and city scenes. The staff were helpful and efficient. The breakfast buffet was excellent with staff on hand to cook to order.
Just next to the hotel is a great street for restaurants and a stroll among the sights with car hire places just around the corner.

Stayed at this hotel for two nights.

Very convenient to all the Athens center sights and Plaka. Hoho bus stops right out front.

Staff is very good; rooms are a bit small but adequate; with nice bathroom/shower.

Roof top bar/restaurant is very good; with great views. In the evening for a table facing the Parthenon you may need dinner reservations.

We stayed on the 6th floor facing Temple of Zeus. Street noise was not a problem.

Highly recommend this hotel when visiting Athens.

The location could not be better: from one side you overlook the Temple of Olympian Zeus. From the other side, you look up to the Acropolis. Service was fantastic: the hotel was full, but they had our room cleaned and ready for us by 10:30 in the morning when we arrived. Rooms are modern, and beds were very comfortable. You can easily walk to many sites, including the Acropolis, Plaka, and surrounding neighborhoods - we never even took the Metro. We had an early departure before the breakfast opened, and they had to-go breakfast packed for us for our trip. Would definitely recommend this hotel to our friends, and will stay here again!

Excellent location with views of the Acropolis from one side, and Hadiran's Gate and Temple of Zeus on the other. Close enough to walk to the Plaka - great for taverna choices, strolling & shopping. Large comfy room, bath, and balcony if you are on the 7th floor. I would bookmark this one!
