“May 2013 Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We have stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel both last year and again this past May. The staff is great and we love the location. It is within walking distance to many of Athens attractions. The breakfeast is very good and the view from the top is fantastic. The rooms are comfortable and clean and I would stay there again.

We had a reservation at another 4* hotel, around the corner from the Athens Gate. Upon arrival in Athens we were informed that they had overbooked and we would be moved to the Athens Gate. This was certainly our gain and not our loss, as we had a wonderful stay and were offered fantastic rates to make up for the 'inconvenience'. We experienced great service from all staff. The hotel is perfectly located; within easy walking distance of the ancient sites of Athens, the Plaka, Syntagma Square, the Flea Market, etc. The Hop-on-hop-off-bus stops 1 block away from the hotel and for those who are visiting Athens for 1 or 2 days only, this is a great way of seeing the different faces of Athens. We had a corner room on a high floor (7th floor), so traffic noise was no problem at all. The rooftop restaurant and bar has an unrivalled view of the Acropolis and the food is excellent. We had breakfast in the restaurant each day and a wonderful dinner on our last night in Athens.

The hotel is nice and the location is ideal. Breakfast is good but dinner is definitely NOT worth the money. The view from the top is great, you can enjoy it during breakfast or drinks, don't waste your money on dinner there, you can find many very good restaurants in Plaka. One thing that I found very annoying is that they refused to bring me an iron to use. I needed to iron 2 of my husband's shirts and I called reception to ask if i can please have an iron for 10 minutes. They told me I can't, "for safety reasons" but they offer ironing services and the list of prices is in the room. I find that very annoying because I have never stayed in a hotel where I was not able to use one of their irons for 10 minutes!!!! And we travel a lot! Ironing a shirt was 5 euros!
The staff was OK but not very friendly, I found them pretty cold and the type that could not be bothered to be nice.

Room Tip: The rooms in the back have a terrible view towards a building and the trash downstairs...If you can...

If you want to visit the ancient sites of central Athens this is the perfect hotel. Everything is within easy walking distance. It is especially well placed for the temple of Olympian Zeus, the Acropolis and the new Acropolis museum. The rooftop restaurant and bar has an unrivalled view of the Acropolis and the food is excellent.

Room Tip: There is a lot of traffic noise from the side facing the temple of Olympian Zeus.

We had only 2 days in Athens, and were lucky to choose this hotel. Most of the major tourist attractions can be covered on foot or our favourite, Segway. The rooms were clean and the staff were helpful. Innumerable restaurant/bar options are within walking distance, which meant that we walked a lot! :-)
Excellent view of the acropolis from our room balcony. Rooftop terrace restaurant has a beautiful acropolis backdrop. Breakfast itself was basic continental.
Very good value for money & outstanding location.

Magnificient view from The Athens Gate Hotel! I stayed there during my holidays in Athens in April/May 2013. The room I stayed in was perfect! Hotel is in a good location, walking distance to Acropolis, Plaka, Syntagma shopping area, Temple of Olympian Zeus, etc. Good food at the rooftop restaurant and hotel staff were all friendly. Overall, I am very pleased with their service.

Room Tip: Higher floors are always better.

we liked it. Has an excellent location at few minutes walking from Plaka and the Acropolis. The service is very good , good breakfast and a breathtaking view to the Acropolis from the roof restaurant, and from your room if you are lucky to get one at the correct side and a high floor.
we had also dinner at the Roof restaurant, and the food and vine were very good.
Only fault: to have to pay for the Wi-fi access. Signal is the room was very good.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor room, with view to the Acrópolis.
