Just to be clear, this review is not for the property itself but for their customer service. We were unable to stay as the hotel cancelled our reservation due to a credit card issue. We were not given an opportunity to change the card or pay by another means, our room was simply given to someone else. Make sure you... More

Athens Gate is a fantastic place to stay in Athens. The staff were very courteous and friendly, the manager Yannis (I think) went out of his way to help us secure our cars in the basement for the four days we were there. The hotel is very centrally located opposite the Temple of Zeus in Syngrou Ave and a short... More

I strongly recommend anyone who want to visit Athens to stay at this Hotel. Our stay was so pleasant. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The Roof top restaurant was amazing, we could not stop taking pictures over there. While having delicious breakfast we could gaze at the Acropolis. The rooms are clean and modern and we could see...

In summary a good hotel, good facilities, great location, great views, friendly staff but with traffic noise unless you have a room at the rear of the hotel. I chose this hotel mainly because of its great views but also for the good reviews. I was not disappointed. The views from the room (604) were really amazing and from the... More

I will say that I was overwhelmingly impressed that when I arrived at the hotel before 10am and was told that my room was available, I was floored. That. Never. Happens. The roof garden restaurant was nice and had a great view if the Acroplis and Parthenon. Now to the not so great... rooms are tiny. Like REALLY small. I... More

Friendly staff, clean and modern. Fantastic views from the restaurant. Great location with all the sights within walking distance. Bus tours also operate from the street outside the hotel. Great choice of local restaurants within 5 mins walk. Wifi connection was intermittent and band width not really that great.

The Athens Gate Hotel could not be better located for the visiting Athens Traveller! At the foot of the scenic road leading to the Acropolis and the Parthenon; literally across the street from the Temple of Zeus; right behind the old town; just down the boulevard from The Changing of the Guard at the Square; a few dozen steps from...

My wife and stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel for two nights during a short stopover in Athens. The superior room was relatively spacious with a small balcony overlooking the Temple of Zeus. The bathrooms were small but given we didn't spend too much time in our room that didn't bother us. The view from both the rooms and the... More

If you are going to visit the Acropolis, the Athens Gate Hotel is ideally located and there's a bonus, the Temple of Zeus is on the East side of the hotel. The dinner menu at the roof top restaurant is very good and reasonably priced. If you are planning to visit the Parthenon, be at the ticket office at 8:00am... More

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighborhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianized Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centerpiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
