The rooftop garden bar (where breakfast is served) ha a great view of the Acropolos. The hotel is about a 5 minute walk from the metro station and the Acropolis Museum. Wifi isn't free in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights at the beginning of our trip and again 1 night at the end of our trip. The location is absolutely perfect within walking distance to the Acropolis, the Acropolis Museum, Syntagma Square and other attractions. The rooms were very clean and comfy. Although wi-fi was not free in the rooms, there... More

What better way to discover Athens than by foot. This hotel allows you close proximity to the major attractions and the central shopping districts.The Temple of Zeus, the Acropolis, the new and wonderful Acropolis museum, the Plaka, the ancient Olympic Stadium, the Parliament and on and on. A very good roof top restaurant where you can relax and view the... More

Stayed here two nights before going on a cruise. It was a 5-10 minute walk to the Acropolis. The shopping area (plaka) was right around the corner. It was reasonably priced with breakfast included. One thing that I really appreciated was the ability to set the air-conditioning to the temperature I wanted. Most of the european hotels that I have... More

Location couldn't be more perfect!! Easy walking distance to the plaka, the acropolis, etc.rooms were fine...a bit noisy, (street noise) but that's the price to pay for location. Breakfast buffet good. My one complaint? Bathroom too "hip" to be practical....no storage.

The Athens Gate is a decent 4* hotel, in a superb location. The nearest metro (Akropolis) is just a 3 minute walk, with the Acropolis itself, and the Parthenon just 10 minutes on foot. The views from the restaurant / breakfast room are the big draw here though: simply stunning. Tables facing the Acropolis are very popular though, so get... More

As a precruise hotel, we selected the Athens Gate Hotel due to its location. The room we were assigned was very small but we were not in it very much. We stayed three nights. We had a view of the Acropolis in the rear. Problem: early very morning the trash collectors would come and make as much noise as possible.... 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.
