A great location and spectacular views form the roof top garden of the Acropolis. Even though the rooms are double glazed there is still traffic noise from the main thoroughfare below. Staff were friendly and helpful and breakfast was great. The restaurant for dinner served excellent food while providing a view of the Acropolis being lit up. Walking distance to... More

The Athens Gate is lovely. The room, the food, the position, Plaka - it's great. We caught the bus in from the airport and fell for the old rascal at the final stop offering to show us the way to the hotel. How could we be so green? Blame it on the jet lag. He walked us about 100 meters... More

We stayed at Athens Gate Hotel for 3 nights in August and what a location! We decided to get the train from the airport and the hotel was minutes from the acropolis train station stop. When I woke up in the morning to have breakfast, I couldn't believe my eyes, as the breakfast is served on the roof of the... More

Athens Gate was a really great part of our short stay in Athens. As numerous reviews have already pointed out this is very close to all the main historical sites in Athens and the view from the roof top bar and restaurant are stunning. We went out for an explore on our first evening and had a so so Greek... More

Due to trip timing and planning I had to stay here on my last night of our trip. Hind sight being 20/20 I wish I would have stayed here the whole time. The views, the room, the service was twice that of the 5-star we were in. I would recommend this place to anyone. Thank you to the desk personnel... More

Well located with great views. The rooms were pleasant and the balconies looked over many Athens landmarks. A mid-evening drink at the rooftop bar, complete with free wifi gave us the chance to post some early pix of floodlit temples and city scenes. The staff were helpful and efficient. The breakfast buffet was excellent with staff on hand to cook... More

Stayed at this hotel for two nights. Very convenient to all the Athens center sights and Plaka. Hoho bus stops right out front. Staff is very good; rooms are a bit small but adequate; with nice bathroom/shower. Roof top bar/restaurant is very good; with great views. In the evening for a table facing the Parthenon you may need dinner reservations.... More

The location could not be better: from one side you overlook the Temple of Olympian Zeus. From the other side, you look up to the Acropolis. Service was fantastic: the hotel was full, but they had our room cleaned and ready for us by 10:30 in the morning when we arrived. Rooms are modern, and beds were very comfortable. You... More

Excellent location with views of the Acropolis from one side, and Hadiran's Gate and Temple of Zeus on the other. Close enough to walk to the Plaka - great for taverna choices, strolling & shopping. Large comfy room, bath, and balcony if you are on the 7th floor. I would bookmark this one!
