Great place to base yourself especially if you're here for a short time. Location is central to main attractions. Literally 10-15 min. From the entrance of the Acropolis and 5 min from the Acropolis museum. The hotel faces the Temple of Zeus. Our room was on the 6th floor and had a balcony. We didn't even need to go across... More

From the roof top views to the location and quality of the rooms, Athens Gate hotel gave us everything we were looking for, all at an affordable price. I only wish we had stayed here for our entire stay in Athens instead of just our last two nights. The roof top bar even has extended hours, something our previous hotel... More

Hotel was clean and tidy. Front desk was exceptionally helpful. Very close to Acropoli Station which is next to lots of restaurants. 5 mins walk to Plaka and hop on hop off stand. Please request for quiet rooms if you are a light sleeper. Room facing Temple of Zeus tends to be facing a busy street.

I really enjoyed my stay at Athens Gate Hotel. There are a few characteristics that I felt made it a perfect base to begin our trip to Greece. As they say, location, location, location....Athens Gate has location in spades. It is near the Acropolis metro station and a short walk from the Acropolis Museum and Acropolis archaeological site. There are... More

We spent 3 nights at Athens Gate Hotel in early September. Great location in the ancient city -- walk to the Acropolis, Plaka, etc. Don't miss the rooftop restaurant bar with its amazing views of the Acropolis, monuments, city. The hotel staff treated guests warmly and made our stay delightful. As with hotels in Europe the rooms are small but... More

Fabulous location. Helpful staff. Modern fit out - rooms a bit small with some traffic noise but wonderful views - particularly from roof top restaurant. A bit cramped at breakfast time but worth it for the views.

We stayed at the Athens Gate in Sept 2016 and loved our stay. We had an Executive room overlooking the Acropolis and it was AMAZING! The rooms were very clean and really liked having the robes. Had breakfast served to us on our balcony and it was really nice. I would highly recommend the Athens Gate. Easy access to the... More

We stayed in Athens Gate for two nights. The staff is amazingly friendly and helpful. The location was PERFECT! You are literally blocks away from the Acropolis Museum and a few more minutes from the Acropolis entrance gate. You are literally around the corner from the Plaka area with an abundance of restaurants, cafes, bars, stores etc. I couldn't have... More

Although Athens Gate Hotel does not impress one from the front, we were very pleased with our room and LOVED the rooftop restaurant with wonderful view of the Acropolis, Hadrian's Gate and ruins of temple right across the street! Magnificent. Also, as soon as we walked in the front door, they offered us glasses of water and a Greek candy... More

We stayed at the Athen's Gate for 2 nights in September. The rooms were spacious, modern, and extremely clean. The front desk and staff were excellent and gave spot on recommendations for restaurants, activities, and the best time to go to the Acropolis (afternoon, when the tourists leave). The restaurant on the roof has world-class views of the Acropolis for... 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.
