“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

This a nice Hotel with stunning views to the beautiful columns of the Zeus Temple and Hadrian's Arch. Perfect location very close to the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, the Plaka and the city center. We walked to all places we wanted to visit although the Acropolis metro station is only a few feet away from the Hotel. Hotel staff very friendly and assisted us in all we needed .
We would definitely return to this hotel.

Excellent hotel with very friendly and helpful staff. View from roof garden out of this world.
Stayed there during most violent of protests and strikes, great advice from staff and tips on safest places to go.

Room Tip: Higher floors less 'road noise' and higher floors at rear great view of Acropolis.

My husband and I stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel for 1 night during our honeymoon. We were on our way from Santorini to Split and basically just wanted to see a bit of Athens on the way! This hotel was absolutely perfect for that. You couldn't get closer to the Temple of Zeus if you tried (it is across the road from the hotel), and the Acropolis is just a short walk around the corner, past shops and restaurants.

As we were only staying for 1 night, we booked a standard room. It was very comfortable, and as advertised. (If you want a view you need to book a superior room.) The bathroom was on the smaller side but was modern and clean. For a standard room, I certainly couldn't fault it.

The real highlight was the rooftop restaurant. The photos I had seen prior to staying did not do it justice. The views are amazing, the food is amazing (go for the 3 courses - we had a caramel cheesecake that was to die for!!!!), the atmosphere is very romantic and service is great.

For such a short time in Athens, we had such a fantastic time and were able to do the things we wanted to, thanks to the location of this hotel.

I wouldn't hesitate staying again!

Room Tip: Ask for a non street room. You lose the night view but also the heavy traffice. The restaurant has...

We stayed over at this hotel only for one night prior to a cruise, and it was great. Set right between two great monuments with wonderful views of both from the balcony of the restaurant. Food was good too. Best steak ever tasted was the comment from one if our group. Definitely recommend.

The Athens Gate was fab. My room was very comfortable, the bathroom was really good, and the breakfast was great! The service was very good and the hotel put on a free shuttle to the airport on the day of a public transport and taxi strike. My only criticism was that the lift was bizarre/scary - but I got used to it over a few days :) I would absolutely recommend the Athens Gate - the location is brilliant, and their rooftop bar has excellent food and drink for great prices, with the most incredible views in Athens. Key tip - ask the hotel for details of how to book an airport transfer. I paid 22 euro for my transfer (through their recommendation) whereas my colleagues paid between 35-90 euros for a taxi from the airport!!

Room Tip: Ask for a room above the 4th floor on the Acropolis side, or get a room on the 'Temple of Zeus...

I stayed here for 3 nights on business. The rooms are clean and modern. I liked the little bag of lavendar that was waiting for me on the pillows. The hotel is located in a perfect spot for a bit of sight seeing, very convenient. The highlight is the view when having breakfast. I had to run back downstairs for my camera! Plenty of things to choose from, including fresh Greek yogurt and fresh juice. Only negative aspect is that If you are unable or have difficulty to climb stairs, then this might not be the hotel for you as the lifts are very slow and you will be frustrated waiting for a long time. The hotel exceeded all expectations when they put on a free shuttle to the airport because of taxi strikes! Would strongly recommend this hotel.
