Athen's Gate Hotel is a 38 Euro cab ride from the airport. It is located within walking distance of the Acropolis, the City Gardens, and the Parliament. Cabs and the subway offer easy transportation to the entire city. Free breakfast on the rooftop was only surpassed by the unobstructed view of the Acropolis. I also was pleasantly surprised to have... More

The hotel has a very good situation but the room with view on Zeus temple has also a view on a road with 6 lines used all the night. This hotel has a direct connection with the metro, and restaurant a near by the hotel. Don't book a room with a nice view on Zeus temple( these rooms are more... More

We stayed here for a week and enjoyed every moment! Our view from our 7th floor room was spectacular! We were able to walk to each location on our list. Dining is very close as is the Plaka. The staff was very accommodating and friendly.

In my opinion, the places that are nicer in Athens are basically the Plaka (the nicest), Monastiraki y Koukaki neighborhoods. The hotel is ideally located to walk all these places. After visiting the city and see the other hotels I will consider this to be the best located. Many of the other hotels that are well located in Plaka, do... More

We booked a superior family room, which turned out to be two adjacent rooms (not connected) behind a hallway door that could be locked. So it turned out to be perfect for a family of four. The location is fantastic - our rooms looked out onto the Temple of Olympian Zeus and we were a 5 minute walk from the... More

We stayed here for the Athens Marathon so primarily for its location but secondly because we'd seen the views it had from its restaurant, which absolutely lived up to expectations! The service was friendly from all the staff but especially the staff in the restaurant even at 5am when lots of the guests were up for an early breakfast before... More

The hotel is right in the middle of the better sightseeing areas and beside a Big Bus Tour Stop which is excellent. All the staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and the facilities were very good as well.

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.
