We chose this hotel based on the location and the Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. We had five nights in Athens with our two children and booked a family room which was spacious and very well appointed. The location was perfect, within ten minutes we were in the Plaka or at the Acropolis Museum. The staff were all... More

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in July during a recent trip to Athens. While we didnt spend a lot of time in the hotel, I am very glad we chose them. The location is ideal. It's close to the metro station so you can take that from the airport and then just walk to the hotel. Once... More

I travelled with two of my daughters. I was looking for a hotel which provided location, value and comfort. The Athens Gate is very comfortable, immaculate, and the location is perfect for touring the major sites. The rooftop bar is a beautiful setting for the generous breakfast. The service was quite good. The one improvement I'd suggest is free WiFi... More

The views from the hotel were nice: we got to see the Athenian Acropolis and by craning our heads a little bit, we could see the temple of Zeus. The room was a little bit smaller than we expected and there was no bath tub, although I'm not sure if all hotels in Athens have this unfeature. The small room... More

Room was clean and nicely appointed. As I said above Great location location location, Awesome view of the Acropolis and The Temple of Olympian Zeus, especially at night. Staff was friendly and helpful. Go to rooftop restaurant for amazing night time views (not food). Wait staff in restaurant is extremely nice and accommodating. Greek wines are surprisingly good!

Best kept secret is the top floor restaurant and bar with full Monty views of he acropolis and temple of Zeus. Rooms modern and clean. Great central location next to "everything". Why we have to do minimum of 200 characters escapes me.

We found this hotel while in our taxi cab on the way from the bus stop where we had taken an over 2 hour bus trip on the “Almost Express” bus from Patras. We had taken a overnight cruise from Ancona Italy to Patras. This was this most exhausting part of our month long trip and we mostly took planes... More

We stayed here for two nights on our way to the Greek islands. Clean rooms, modern lobby and courteous staff. The best part about this hotel was it's location. You literally are a 5 minute walk from the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus is right outside the front door. Breakfast was great- there were so many choices. The view... More
