I loved this hotel. From check in to check out everything was great. We stayed here the last day of our 10 day Greece tour and it was a fabulous ending. We had the room with the view and balcony. Breakfast was the best we've had since coming to Greece. Was late to the airport because we were enjoying breakfast... More

Very courteous staff! Amazing rooftop restaurant with ridiculous views of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. Food was excellent! Breakfast served, buffet-style, on rooftop as well. Clean, nice rooms. Hotel is convenient to everything. Value was exceptional. Ask for a room with a view. Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed 3 nights in a family 2 room setup. The rooms were modern and comfortable. Thankful after our rock hard beds in santorini. Breakfast was the best in any of our hotels in Greece. The restaurant serves excellent food. Staff were friendly and very helpful. We would not hesitate to stay agsin.

What a terrific hotel! Great accommodations..... The views from our balcony were beyond belief. Roof top restaurant with incredible views and a daily breakfast that included stupendous food as well as long hours of service. The location was perfect only blocks from the Plaka and near the Acropolis. Lastly the staff was SO HELPFUL. They all went above and beyond... More

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

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.
