We spent 3 nights at The Athens Gate Hotel and the experience was fantastic. Staff are friendly and helpful. Hotel and rooms are clean and comfortable. The roof top restaurant and complimentary breakfast is great and the view is out of this world! Location is perfect, we walked to all the attractions we wanted to see. The hotel is modern... More

We were very impressed with Athens Gate Hotel and would highly recommend it to other travelers. The best part is definitely the location. It's right next to Plaka (walking distance) and also right next to the entrance of The Acropolis (walking distance). Plus it sits across the street from a beautiful ruins site. The second best part is the rooftop... More

Good hotel, we've had a room with visit to the Zeus temple, very nice! Breakfast with view to the Acropolis! Very well located, 2 min. to the Adriano's arch, you can walk everywhere to the city and is 5 min to the acropolis and acropolis museum, which has some great restaurants in front of it!

My husband, adult son and I stayed five nights at the Athens Gate in mid April 2015. The hotel is very well located, only one block from the Plaka neighborhood. Rooms on one side of the building face the Acropolis while rooms on the other side face the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Catching the metro, taxis, trams and buses were... More

When we arrived we were greeted by the reception with water and greek delights which was such a nice touch! The rooms were clean, and spacious! The breakfast could not be faulted either, with a variety of both hot and... More

Located on the busiest road through the centre of Athens, outwardly the hotel can appear rather drab and nondescript, but once you step inside you will be pleasantly surprised. The reception staff are very friendly and welcoming and soon direct you to your modern & clean room.Initially we were disappointed to be given a room at the back of the... More

Really enjoyed our stay here. The location is stunning and the views of Athens treasures fabulous. Great rooftop bar and restaurant with good clean rooms and really friendly and helpful staff. We stayed at the back where rooms seemed a little quieter.

If you're planning a tour to Athens, Sintagma neighbourhood is the best choice. This hotel is a 4 star one, just a bit pricy in European standarts. But very well located, just in the heart of historical sites. It is so much noisy on the street side but has a view of Zeus Temple But try to book a top... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Athens Gate hotel. We are a family of 4 adults and we stayed for 5 nights (over the Greek Easter period). Our rooms faced the temple of zeus so we woke up to a beautiful view each morning. There was a fantastic variety of food available at the buffet breakfast (and not to... 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.
