We stayed 2 nights at the Athens Gate Hotel during our 10-day trip to Greece back in September (booked through Travelive, which was a fantastic agency) and found this to be the ideal hotel for our stay in Athens. First off, the location is perfection. Situated in walking distance to the museum and the Acropolis (just steps away!) it made our short stay in the city SO convenient. We didn’t have to bother with trains, car rental or taxis to see any of the major sites. We just got up and walked outside and everything (including some great restaurants) was right there!
We also loved the rooftop bar and restaurant. Breakfast was delicious and the dinner was also quite good. The view is unbeatable, especially at night. Even if you don’t eat there, I’d highly recommend going up just to take some photos. The only downside to the hotel is that our room was extremely small—it literally was the bed and a bit of walking space around it and a small table (thought we did have a small balcony which was nice). The elevators could only fit about 2 people at a time, plus 2 pieces of luggage. Not great but it's not like we spent a ton of time in the room anyway. I did appreciate that the hotel was very clean and modern. I’d take the cleanliness over extra space any day!
