Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
The Athens Gate Hotel garners applause for its central location, steps away from the Acropolis and Plaka, with its rooftop restaurant drawing guests in for the breathtaking views and delectable breakfast. While some guests have called out the basic nature of rooms and amenities, the hotel's cleanliness and charming atmosphere with modern touches are consistently praised. Though traffic noise can be an issue for some, many find the views from their rooms compensate. The efficient and friendly service adds to the hotel's value, despite occasional comments on meal prices.

Great hotel. Clean, quiet. I had an executive room on the 7th floor with Acropolis view, and highly recommend this room. Sat out on the balcony many times, day and night, with unobstructed view of the Parthenon and Acropolis. Hotel has a central location and is close to many attractions. Lovely rooftop restaurant for breakfast and dinner.

Hotel's Favorite
We had a fantastic time at The Athens Gate. The location was superb, the service was absolutely brilliant, and the view from the room was spectacular. The staff were all so helpful and welcoming that we immediately felt at home. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the Acropolis, and that view was worth the price of the room alone! The food at the restaurant was delicious. All the big tourist sites are within very easy reach. We couldn’t have picked a better hotel for our stay, and would love to go back.

The Hotels location couldn’t be any better. If you are staying in Athens for a few days then this is the area you’d want to be. Just a few minutes walk from most if not all of the must visit places including the Acropolis, Ancient Agora, the museum etc .. the staff at the hotel were very welcoming and absolutely amazing. The hotel itself was very clean and lobby wasn’t short of a 5 star hotel. The views from our room were breathtaking and the room and the balcony were good size. There were however a couple of minor issues; our room was facing the main road with amazing views of then Temple of Zeus but the traffic noise was a bit overwhelming but I guess that wasn’t the hotel’s fault. Also the lifts were a bit small and the breakfast area was very busy especially during the peak hours. Overall a great experience and would definitely highly recommend

One of the best places we’ve stayed. The hotel is perfectly situated, esthetic, clean, provides great service, great views from the restaurant, and the very best yoghurt for breakfast (I recommend mixing it with the fresh fruit and bran flakes). Definitely recommended.

This is our first time out of the United States and into Europe. This was an amazing experience and a whole different vibe from living in Texas. The Athens Gate Hotel is next to the Acropolis and most of the archaeological monuments, in fact across the street is Zeus Temple. The Athens Gate Hotel is also very close to the Plaka restraunts and shops, worth the walking. I’ve heard previous reviews about loud music but we walked all day and had so much fun we never even felt the music when we slept. Car service is so quick and very nice . The upstairs restaurant is absolutely delicious and worth the price. My fiancée and I only stayed for a week and still did not have enough time to finish looking around . When we come back to Greece , I will stay at the Athens Gate Hotel once again. I recommend this hotel. The rooms are a bit thin so we could hear our neighbors but to me it is not a problem.

A terrific hotel for tourists wanting to be right in the tourist precinct of Athens. The Acropolis is a couple of hundred metres from the site with the Acropolis Museum close by. Views from the breakfast room are amazing, directly onto the Parthenon and better at night when it is floodlit. breakfasts are good, if somewhat crowded but the restaurant in the evening is excellent offering good food and excellent service. Our fifth floor room did experience some evening traffic noise but was comfortable with a good bed, excellent bathroom with hot water. Check in was friendly and fast. I would very happily stay again.
