We were greeted by the smell of garbage as we entered our room (probably because the room was located on the back near the alleyway where the garbage gets collected. The room itself was quite basic and whilst clean it really didn't exude a 4 star experience. If you looking for internet access, you can sign up for paid Wifi... More

We were just spending a few days in Athens before continuing on to Crete and we wanted a nice hotel near the Acropolis so that we could see the ruins and the museums on foot. The location could not have been better, and the view from the rooftop restaurant was perfect. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Although the... More

The view from our room was the ruins of the Temple of Zeus, which is directly across the street, and the view from the rooftop restaurant was the Parthenon, a 10 minute walk away! Absolutely stunning! Breakfast was delicious! Additionally, the hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and bathrooms were modern and comfortable. Shopping, cafes, and many sites... More

We stayed at the Athens Gate for about 2 nights. Location is pretty convenient since the Acropolis is in walking distance and the temple of Zeus is right across the street from it. Our room was located on the 6th floor and we got the view of the Acropolis right from our balcony, which I must say was stunning. So... More

Good value for money and a great location for the Parthenon and other main sightseeing attractions. Also very close to Plaka district which has a good variety of restaurants, all seeming to serve nice food, service very friendly as well. The hotel restaurant has one of the best views of the Parthenon, great during the day and brilliant at night... More

We stayed here for a few nights after a fabulous 3 week holiday in Positano and Greek Islands. We did not have high expectations for this hotel but were pleasantly surprised once we got to that roof top bar. The view of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus were brilliant, and Mike was a great Barman. We had dinner on... More

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It's a10 minute walk from Acropolis and Plaka so it's great that it's so central to everything. The room was clean, it was comfy and renovated. Nothing to complain about there, but it was a bit disappointing that there was no free wifi in the rooms. At this day and age,... More

We stayed in Athens for 2 nights before heading to the Greek Islands. The staff was incredible even before we arrived. All my questions, including directions from the airport, were answered during prompt email communication. The location was perfect making it easy to sight see and get around on your own without the need for a taxi or bus. The... More
