We felt welcome right from the start. We were greeted with a glass of water and Greek treats! Our room was ready and we had a great view of the temple of Zeus. Hotel was informative and the accommodations were comfortable. Close to the Acropolis/Parthenon and the New Acropolis Museum, short walking distance. The surrounding area is nice for strolling...

Our son highly recommended this hotel as he had stayed there four years ago. We stayed 4 nights at this excellent hotel before our Black Sea Cruise. The hotel facilities are in super good conditions. Bathroom is very clean. The location is perfect for a tourist, central to all the attractions. During breakfast on the roof we looked at the... More

My husband and I stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel for about 8 days during our honeymoon. The moment you step in the door you can see how "guest oriented" it is. The concierge brought our luggage up while we got checked in. The room was very nice. The view on the Athens Rooftop restaurant was incredible! The Parthenon and... More

We stayed at the the Athens Gate for 2 nights. The location is incredible, the room was incredible, and the views are to die for. We had an upper floor room with wrap around balconies on three sides that overlooked the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus. The hotel is truly incredible.

This hotel is in the perfect location for sightseeing in Athens. We had a temple of zeus view and this was perfect, although a little noisy from the road. You can take the chairs out of the balcony and have a drink there - as we did as we were traveling with a young child with an early bedtime! The... More

We stayed at the Athens Gate hotel for 2 nights whilst visiting Athens. The hotel is right by the Plaka area and is about 5 mins walk to the hillside entrance of the Acropolis. It is also within walking distance to all the surrounding tourist sites and it very convenient. The hotel has a rooftop restaurant and it provides a... More

Great value hotel in an excellent location with clean, modern and comfortable rooms. Friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was adequate with great views of the Acropolis. The location of the hotel is walking distance to many of the main attractions and near the Plaka neighbourhood of Athens. Would stay here a again., highly recommend.

This is the perfect hotel for a romantic get away in Athens. The views from the roof top restaurant of the Acropolis and Zeus Temple are spectacular day or night. The room is very comfortable and the staff helpful and friendly. The location is walking distance to the sites. The buffet breakfast offers both local and american style breakfast fare.

Wonderful location! Clean and comfortable hotel with an amazing breakfast. The best part about the hotel was the rooftop restaurant where you feel like you are sitting under the parthenon. You can walk out of the hotel and you are right in the middle of all the site seeing action. We had a room overlooking ruins. Simply amazing!

We ended our honeymoon at The Athens Gate Hotel and were there for a couple days after a week in Santorini. The staff was immediately and consistently kind and hospitable. We discovered we had messed up our flights and needed to book a room for a second night last minute...the staff was very accommodating and understanding. Our room had a... 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.
