With an ideal location to see Athens. With a roof top restaurant boasting views of the Acropolis and across the road the Temple of Zeus we were not disappointed. Well appointed room, close to the metro, restaurants and in walking distance of the Acropolis. Would recommend this hotel.

Location, location, location. This hotel has probably the best view of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus considering the hotel sits between the two. The staff is top notch, very helpful, friendly and proud to introduce you to Athens. Our room was on the 7th floor looking out on to the Acropolis. Room fully equipped and spacious. Complimentary bottle of... More

Athens Gate is a great hotel for your stay in Athens if you want something that is centrally located and has a view! My sister recommended it to me and I am so glad that she did! We were able to walk to all of the attractions. The Temple of Zeuss was directly across the street from us and we... More

The Athens Gate Hotel sits in the midst of many of the "must see" historical sites in Athens Greece. It was about 1/2 hour ride from the airport (about 35 euro this July). The rooms were spacious enough and very clean (and reasonably priced), having been recently updated. The rooftop restaurant offered panoramic views of a few major sites. Breakfast... More

Located just across the street from The Temple of Olympic Zeus and Handron's Gate, this hotel has been remodeled very recently. The staff is very helpful, and the hotel is very clean. Hotel rooms are the size you would expect, with large balcony and everything is updated! Get a room facing the Temple of Zeus for great views! Roof top... More

We had stayed in two different hotels during our visit to Athens. Both these hotels located right next to each other offered rooms on a bed and breakfast basis at the same rate but Athens Gate Hotel seems to look very average in comparison to its neighbor. The staff were friendly and helpful but the hotel and the rooms were... More

My husband and I traveled to Greece for our 2-week honeymoon. Our first 2 nights were spent at the Athens Gate and we couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay there. Breakfast was fantastic. We enjoyed breakfast each morning at the rooftop restaurant, which had amazing views of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. The location of the... More

GREAT staff: front desk, restaurant, housekeeping, etc. The girls at the front desk set up a 4AM taxi pickup for me so I could get to the airport on time, in addition to a 3:45AM wake up call, which was promptly on time. They also gave me a brown bag meal to take with me to the airport since I... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
