The Athens Gate is a lovely hotel! We were in Greece for a week and only stayed there for our first two nights. Upon returning from Mykonos we wished we had rebooked with Athens Gate for the rest of the week. We asked for a room with a view and at no additional charge the hotel gave us a room with a view of Zeus' Temple which was beautiful at night. The roof top view of the Acropolis is absolutely stunning. The free breakfast every morning was amazing. Everything you could want for breakfast. The hotel is in walking distance from everything from shopping to dessert shops, cute curbside bars to wonderful affordable eateries. You can also walk to the bus stop which will take you directly to the airport for $5 Euro instead of taking a taxi. Just leave the airport and take X95. The final stop is Syntagma Square and the hotel is a 7 min walk from the bus station. We also walked from our hotel to tour the Acropolis and it's surrounding tour sites. Athens Gate is the place to stay and the reviews helped us to make our choice to stay here. I'm glad we did!
