“Athens Gate comes highly recommended.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

Just spent a five day city break staying at Athens Gate. The hotel is a superb place to stay if you don't require pool and spa type facilities. The location is great with fabulous views over the Acropolis and temple of Zeus and is quite handy for Athens centre for shopping and the many eateries and restaurants. The rooms are spacious for a city hotel and are spotlessly clean. The staff are very pleasant and most efficient and there is a good choice of items on the breakfast buffet. Would thoroughly recommend.

We have just stayed here along with three other couples over February half term and we were all very impressed with the quality of the hotel. The location is perfect and to have breakfast in the roof terrace overlooking the acropolis is amazing. The rooms, though smallish, are very clean.
Overall, a great place to stay for a city break.

Room Tip: Higher floors facing the Acropolis are quieter

I chose this hotel based on the excellent reviews that I found on trip advisor. We stayed for 4 nights and booked a room on the 7th floor overlooking the Acropolis. The view was breathtaking. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and we ended up eating dinner at the hotel twice because the food was the best meal we had while in Athens. The staff was very knowledgable and HELPFUL. They recommended great tours, resturants and nightlife. On the day of our departure they even prepared a to go breakfast for us to take on the plane. This is more than a hotel - it was an experience. Thank you for the incredible experience. If we ever come back to Athens there isn't any other place we'd stay :) thank you!!!

We had a great stay. The rooms are comfortable and the staff exceptionally friendly and helpful - particularly the reception staff. The roof top restaurant and bar are spectacular with amazing views of the acropolis. Great food too.

Travelled here with my cousin after a trip to the Greek Islands. We needed to be pampered and that's exactly what we got. The rooms are incredibly clean. All the in room amenities are brand new and clearly the latest and greatest. We had a large amount of hanging space and space for two massive travelling duffel bags as well as hand luggage.

The best parts of the room are:
Great size bath and a good pressure shower
Comfortable bed and very soft pillows, with adequate covers (if you put the aircon on too low)
Excellent air con (controllable)
An accessible balcony, which gives you an appreciation for how loud the traffic is and how quiet the rooms are when the doors are closed

The best parts of the hotel are:
Fantastic location
Friendly staff - all helpful and knowledgeable
The concierge were brilliant with their advice of the area and tips of the attractions - such as best times to go
The breakfast is amazing - one of the best hotel breakfasts I have had - and the views are stunning. Make sure you sit somewhere different every morning to savour the views.

The only down-point I can mention is the air-conditioner. It switches off when you take the card out or open the balcony door. To combat this, we used our Costa Coffee card, which allowed us to have the aircon on all the time for when we returned. A minor hassle, not a problem.

Would go back in a heart beat.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the The Parthenon

I stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel in February 2014. The location is ideal and the rooftop views of the Acropolis and surrounding area can't be beat. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the food selection in the complimentary breakfast was diverse. The room rate was very reasonable. This may just be the best hotel in the whole city.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the Temple of Zeus provide a good view, but the street can be a bit noisy

My future daughter-in-law and I traveled to Greece July 20th. First Hotel, Athens Gate . So beautiful. Location, location, Modern Hotel, Clean and I mean clean, right between Acropolis and Zeus Temple. Loved the rooftop breakfast and illuminated evening dinner. Could not recommend a better hotel/ Greece Location. Very Happy.

Room Tip: We were so busy..there may have been a swimming pool or fitness center... Can't say...but the Ho...
