“Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Great location, about 10-15 min stroll from all major attractions, no need for cabs. Staff is friendly, rooms are clean. Our room was on the fourth floor with balcony facing the the temple of Zeus. It has a roof top restaurant that serves breakfast that has great views of the Acropolis.

Room Tip: Rooms on the street side with a balcony facing the temple of Zeus.

We stayed at the Athens Gate in June. the Hotel is centrally located within five minutes on foot of the Acropolis Museum and just opposite the temple of Zeus. The Hotel is modern and stylish and has the most wonderful roof terrace which serves breakfast and evening meals with a panoramic view of Athens. The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast included in our accommodation was always fresh with a good selection for all tastes and best of all the staff was friendly, professional and very customer focused. I would recommend this Hotel to anyone visiting Athens for business or pleasure you will not be disappointed.

We stayed two nights in June 2013 for 2 days in Athens (all most people want)
The location is fabulous at the base of the walking path for the ACROPOLIS and across the street from the Hadrian Arch and Temple of ZEUS.
Our rooms were on the 6th floor (try to get the higher floors for the views which are great in day and night!)
Checkin was perfect- no hassles with water and sweets waiting
No busy "four seasons" mentality- I prefer to just take my own bag and wander to the room without all the fuss- but if you need the fuss.....
Friendly and helpful
Internet is the usual "pay" with free in the lobby and the porch (I never understand this)
Computers are free to use and print boarding passes in the Lobby which is nice
Rooms are VERY clean- smallish but room to move around
Beds are duvets and clean- I always bring earplugs in the city but given the Athenian noise they were well insulated
Décor is modern and simple but tasteful
Bathrooms also are crystal clean and well appointed but small as well
Felt very safe and the views from the roofdeck are lovely (as are the meals)
Breakfast was a usual preprepared (I would like to see an omelet bar as the eggs are just yucky in a bowl) but adequate and the usual yogurt/ fruits and nuts
Juices were plentiful and staff always pleasant- nothing special, but always receptive!

Room Tip: Get as high as you can!

We were only in Athens for 2 days so a good location for hotel was very important !

Arrived late so took the Taxi straight from airport with very little hassle. It was at fixed rate. Rooms are clean and nice size with everything you expected to be there. Breakfast with a view was amazing and decent spread considering part of package!

One thing to note is that the staff were very helpful and accommodating. We were originally put in a room directly facing the busy road and was unable to sleep 1st night so requested for a room change facing the back and they tried to help us there successfully. We also asked for restaurant recommendations and they were spot on ! Smile (short walk from hotel) was a lovely restaurant, good for a quick bite and had amazing gyros!

Room Tip: Avoid low floors or rooms facing the street. Due to its prime location, it's in a very busy are...

Hotel was located in an excellent location just a few minutes walk from Acropolis metro; however we referred to Google maps which had pinned it wrongly and we spent an hour looking for it instead.

Other than the small mishap, the hotel was clean, modern and had nice art pieces in the lobby. No free wifi in the room which is uncommon these days but was available in the lobby and rooftop (hard to detect though). Service was generally good so no complaints on that. Another reason for choosing this hotel is the view, the view, the view. Breakfast at the roof top allows you to see the Acropolis in the day, drinks at night allows you to see the splendour of the Acropolis at night.

Only small complaint was the small old-school lift which could only fit 4 people.

Room Tip: Please do not refer to Google Maps for this location as it was way wrong! Also ask for higher floors...

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.
