“Top marks for this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

If you are thinking of travelling to Athens, don't hesitate and book a room in this hotel! The staff is very friendly, the views are amazing and the location is great, too. Every evening, on our way back to the hotel I repeated myself: "How pleased I am I booked a room here!"

Room Tip: The rooms in the fifth floor - where we stayed - were spacious and had great views of the Temple of...

Me and my girlfriend betrothed and we had a 5 day trip to Athens. We stayed in Athens Gate Hotel and it was a really great choice!! We had a quite large and luxury room on 3rd floor with really great view of Acropolis. We both are professor of history and it was a dream come true to see with our own eyes what we teach to children and have it as view from our room. Totally recommended!!

This hotel was awesome, great breakfast included, beautiful view, rooms with porches and comfortable beds. Very Affordable! We only booked this hotel for one night as we were going on a cruise, but it was right near the main attraction, walking distance of everything.

With 4 days in Athens, chose a 4 star rated hotel over the usual 3 star hotel, and went a bit over my usual budget . I will not repeat all the good TA reviews, but simple list the good points in short , which made my holiday that bit better .
Location , central ,near Plaka , below the Acropolis , two blocks away .
Close to Acropolis Metro station and all the major historical site .
Large bathroom and good sized sink with side shelves for stuff.
Clean a freshly made Double bed with extra pillows.
Very friendly and helpful reception staff ...Stella.
I will recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Athens and I thank the local expert who gave me the idea of going for a 4 star at a few Euro difference .
A few suggestions to the Management to raise the already high standards ,my rating 9 out of 10 .
The bathroom was large and had all the extras including a hairdryer for my better half ,but needs a small stool to help one to exit the wet bath at the same level as the bath base , to eliminate the chance of slipping when stepping out of the bath .
For a 4 star , I would consider , the area Outside the front door to be more pleasing and would spend some money on cleaning the plain and run of the mill pavement setting of the area . The interior foyer is very good and pleasing and is a contrast to the outside pavement on the high road .
I may be wrong on this , as I usually switch off the electronics while on holiday , but the internet is not free in the hotel , and may not be a good attraction for the younger generation.
Overall a very good experience , in line with many other reviews . Thank you for a nice break .

Room Tip: For a quiter night , I would choose a room on the back of the hotel , even if it is without a large...

With only 2 days to explore Athens and not wanting to spend a lot of money, this hotel was perfect. The location is absolutely ideal. It is only 1 block from the Athens Acropolis Metro stop which will take you to all the major spots in the city. That metro stop is surrounded by great restaurants, the entrance gate to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum. For tourists without much time, you can hit all the high points and not waste time in transit. We initially took a cab from the airport when we arrived, but realized the metro was just as convenient and much cheaper on the way back. The metro is very clean and equip with escalators making transport easy with our suitcases.

The hotel itself was very modern and clean. We had a small room with a balcony. The bathroom had a huge shower. The bed was comfortable although it was traditional european style of two twins pushed together. By far, the best part of the hotel was the restaurant on the top floor. The breakfast in the morning was awesome and included in the price of our room. You cannot beat the views from the restaurant - in the morning or at night. The restaurant also has free WiFi which is nice when planning out your day. For a quick (or even more extended) stay in Athens, you can't go wrong with this hotel.

I love the Athens Gate Hotel. Its just 300m from the Acropolis Museum and a short walk into Plaka where there are lots and lots of bars and restaurants. The rooms are clean and very functional - beds are comfy. The rooms on the 7th floor have quite large balconies and when the sun comes out you can sit at the table with 2 chairs and take in the view of the Temple of Zeus if you have a room at the front. The buffet breakfast is very good; the bacon, orange juice and coffee is excellent and the view of the Acropolis is fabulous. The bar and restaurant is essentially a glass box on top of the hotel, floor 8, and the views are stunning. There is a bit of road noise but it gets quieter after 10pm and it is in central Athens. Its a great hotel, very well located. I have included a iPhone panaoramic photo from my 7th floor balcony.

Room Tip: rooms on the temple of Zeus side are noisier but the view....rooms on floor 7 have large private bal...
