It was a little confusing as to which view i would get, (needed to reread the website, either a view of the Temple of Zeus or the Acropolis)
When we got to the hotel, the place was in a very good location.

Things went pretty smoothly. We had an excellent view of the temple of Zeus.
The Room was nice, if not a little small (I guess that's normal for Europe).

The Staff was courteous in pointing out public transportation.

On the first night, we went up to the rooftop bar, for a place that was empty, it took some time for the only waiter to help us take a drink order.

But the Breakfast was very nice in the bar.
Great view of the Acropolis from the bar.

The location was excellent. Very close to one of the public bus stops that hits the major sites of interest.
Also very close to the Acropolis museum (and the Acropolis).
The Plaka area is also just around the corner.

There is no free wifi access in the hotel.

The Elevator is a bit cramped, but other than that, we had a very enjoyable stay.

We stayed four nights. Location for a visit to the Acropole and its museum is perfect. Room was average, but spotlessly clean. Breakfast buffet was varied and of very good quality. Staff were pleasant. As the hotel is along a busy street, the room is noisy, even though Athenian drivers are far less noisy than some other big-city dwellers. What we disliked was the fact that the temperature control device was purely for decoration. Apparently the temperature is controlled centrally, and if one would like a couple more degrees, tough luck. WiFi is available for a small fee, but was down for part of our stay. A PC with printer is available in the lobby.

Stayed for 4 nights, and I have nothing to complain about this hotel. View from the Roof Garden has really excellent view, and breakfast was nice (Bread, ham, bacon, eggs, cheese, tomato/cucumber, cereals, yogurt, cakes, fruits, juices, etc.). Good access to Plaka and Syntagma was also helpful. Some people may not like street noise in the evening, as the hotel is right in front of city's main avenue (Sygrou), but it really did not bother me much. I did not try dinner at the hotel. There are many good tavernas, cafes, etc. around. Service was good, and all staff were friendly.

This is absolutely the best located hotel in Athens. It's across the street from the Temple of Zeus and a very nice walk to the acropolis. The views from the restaurant are spectacular. The breakfast is clearly the best in Greece and probably one of the best in the world. The rooms are sparse (common for Greece) but certainly adequate and very clean.

In general all my stay was perfect in the hotel. Is very central and we could reach easily the main turistic places. The hotel was clean, bed and bathroom were clean all the time, and the staff very friendly. The breakfast sections were in the roof terrace with an amazing view. And also in the same terrace there is a restorant/pub where you can have a very nice time with friends or just relax.

My room had a view to a small interior street, and we were facing a building, there were no problems with that, If we wanted to have an amazing view, we just had to go to the terrace. Sometimes we heard cars or trucks passing, but nothing annoying.

The hotel is just besides the ancient town of Plaka, that is working day and night, you can shop, eat and drink there, is the heart of Athens. We walked there all days of our stay.

I would stay here again many times, and definetly I would return to Athens!

We stayed one night at Athens Gate Hotel and were very happy with it. We had only booked the cheapest room and we were upgraded to the 7th floor to a room with balcony and overlooking the Acropolis. The hotel is beautifully renovated and can recommend it. I think it would be the best place to stay in Athens. Restaurant on top floor has panoramic views of Athens. It is at the foot of the Acropolis, the Old Town and the new Acropolis Musuem. Rates were reasonable (we paid 125 euro with breakfast included).
