Chose this hotel after reading all the wonderful reviews on Trip Advisor. Here is another one: After a wonderful 7 day cruise, we stayed for 3 nights. Upon our early arrival, a room was ready for us an hour later. I had requested a higher floor as the ONLY negative comment I had read was that the street noise could... More

Because of the ferry strikes we had to rearrange our stay in Athens from the end of our trip to the beginning. The hotel staff was wonderful to work with and changed our reservation for us without any difficulties. It was such a relief as we traveled with two small children. We had an incredible room that looked out over... More

This hotel went out of their way to re-accommodate us after we could not get to them on our original booking in December due to the bad weather. Everything was perfect, just as we had remembered it. Very friendly staff who will take time to talk to you not above your heads. The rooms, although a little on the small... More

If you are looking for an excellent yet affordable hotel near Athens’ greatest historical treasures, this is a really good choice. My wife and I stayed there for three nights and we found the hotel to be even better than expected. The front door of the hotel is very unassuming, not large or ornate. But once you enter the hotel... More

Fortunately, I had researched the rooms at the Athens Gate Hotel because, on checking in, we were given a room with a narrow window looking out on the inside of the hotel and the stairwell. I knew that this was the internal budget room and I also knew we hadn't paid for a budget room. A trip back to the... More

Athens was our first stop on our trip to Greece. We only had one day there and we are so happy that we booked with The Athens Gate. It is across the street from the Temple of Zeus and around the corner from the Parthenon. We were glad we did not have to walk far to see the ruins. Our... More

My wife and I recently stayed at Athens Gate for our honeymoon. Overall, while not a luxury hotel, it was a very nice place to stay and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in seeing the major cultural artifacts of Athens. Indeed, Athens Gate's best asset is it's proximity to the Acropolis, which one can see from... More

We only had a couple of days in Athens and this was a very good spot to be. We walked to the Acropolis, museums, plaka, restaurants, olympic stadium etc etc. The view is good from the rooms and excellent from the restaurant at the top. We only had breakfast there but it was good and as I say it is... More

Loved our stay at Athens Gate. Close to everything - we walked everywhere. Rooms modern but relatively small. Perfect in the heart of the big city!!!

We stayed at Athens Gate during a part of our honeymoon. My husband and I cannot say enough good things about it. Friendly staff, especially the bartendor John who was a good sport about our late night shenanigans with some fellow hotel guests and an Ipad in the lobby. The hotel was clean and by far, the most spacious and... 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.
