“Awesome view”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 27, 2012

I loved our room (612) because of the stunning view of the Acropolis and Parthenon. It was even more beautiful in the nighttime illuminations. Breakfast in the rooftop terrace restaurant was excellent (and again, the 360 degree views made it memorable) and all the staff were friendly and helpful. Location is great, especially for the Athens Marathon which was the reason for our visit. Close to the expo at the Zappion Megaro, the startline bus departure point and the finish line at the Panathinaikon Stadium - all 5-10 mins walk away. The charming restaurants, shops and alleyways are just around the corner and we loved exploring this part of Athens.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for an Acropolis view, and try for the 6th/7th floor. This also means avoiding th...

Right across the road from the Temple of Zeus and only minutes from the Acropolis this hotel is in a great location. The rooms are simple but in good order and very clean. The service is excellent night and da. They booked our restaurants, gave travel advice, ordered taxis whilst making it always feel that it was their pleasure to do so. The breakfast has a good variety and you cant really beat starting you day dining whilst overlooking the Acropolis. The bar on the same floor is a nice place to go for a pre-dinner cocktail. The only downside is a room overlooking the Temple of Zeus is on a very busy street. Luckily the traffic noise doesnt bother us very much but we could see this could be a problem for some people.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the Temple of Zeus have road noise

We checked in very late & were greeted warmly with a small treat & water. Our room was very nice with a magnificent view of the temp,e of Zeus. The location of the hotel was perfect. The dining room on the top floor had spectacular views of the Acropolis. The Acropolis Museum was just up the street too! I highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view.

We stayed at this hotel last weekend and I cannot recommend it highly enough. It is in a brilliant location for the major sites with our bedroom looking onto the Temple of Zeus. Nothing can prepare you for the view of the Acropolis from the restaurant and bar on the 8th Floor - it is awe inspiring. The food was wonderful, the service excellent and the staff were lovely. They couldn't do enough for you and it was the little touches like Turkish Delight on arrival, lavender sachets left on the bed and the cleaner leaving two chocolates that made this stay special - those sort of things seem to be missing these days, The prices of the meals and drinks were very reasonable considering the restaurant ranks fourth in the world in the best roof top views. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone about to visit Athens.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front look onto the Temple of Zeus, but there are less rooms with a view of the Acropol...

This is a beautiful hotel in an excellent location. Everything that everyone else has written is correct- the hotel is spotless and the staff are brilliant. The view from the restaurant is breathtaking and it is a lovely relaxing place to be.
We had a room with a balcony which was located up the side of the hotel and although we didn't hear the noise of the traffic, we were disturbed every night at 2am approx by the bin men who love to make a noise and shout. It is in no way a reflection on the hotel- just a bit annoying!
Lots of restaurants nearby serving authentic Greek food at a range of prices. Never at any point felt compromised in terms of security but be warned- you are likely to be asked for money or to buy things from a range of people as you sit in a bar/ restaurant, very often with buskers ( young kids more often than not) playing accordions/ guitars in your ear.
The hotel is easy to get to from the airport although we did arrive after 10pm and didn't fancy taking the metro at that time not really knowing where we were going. The taxi cost €50 and took approx 40 mins. Taxi driver was very friendly and gave us lots of useful do/ don't advice. Well worth the € 50!! Got the metro back to the airport though -€14 for two-person ticket and it was an easy journey.
This is a great place to stay and I would recommend this to anyone coming to see the sights of Athens
I would definitely come back here.

We stayed at Athens Gate for a long weekend and found it to be a great location for all of the major sites. All aspects of the hotel services were excellent. I wish the beds were softer thus a better nights sleep! The rooftop restaurant has a beautiful view of the Acropolisand free wick. Definitely would stay here again

Room Tip: Ask for an upper floor room overlooking the Parthenon

Comfortable, clean basic hotel room. It's the location that makes this hotel such a gem. Just down the street from the new Acropolis museum and within easy walking distance of almost all the major attractions. Excellent breakfast served in the rooftop restaurant with stunning views of the Parthenon and the Temple of Zeus. Staff are friendly and helpful - can get a taxi for you and help confirm tours ...
Highly recommended for a short stay in Athens.
