This hotel has a convenient location. It is exactly opposite the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch and is walking distance to major sites/attractions in the city centre including the Plaka district where there a lot of restaurants and shops. It is also a short taxi ride from the Syntagma Metro Station (paid 4E). Serves a good breakfast at the rooftop restaurant with an amazing view of of the Temple of Zues and the Acropolis. Free wifi is provided at the lobby and at the rooftop restaruant. Staff were very nice and accomodating. Had to checked out early and they provided us with packed breakfast.

However, I think the hotel is just a little overpriced. For their rate, you would expect a little more. Have stayed in hotels in other cities for the same price and some of those hotels, if not all, are above the Athens Gate Hotel. I think the hotel is really capitalizing on its location. No coffee/tea facility or free bottled water in the room exept for the honeymoon suite. But they do provide in the lobby.

Overall, I still think Athens Gate is a very good and highly recommended hotel.

Room Tip: I'd recommend superiour rooms (Ours was on 4th floor). These rooms have private balcony with rea...

The hotel is nice, clean and modern. Wifi works great, but the best thing about this hotel is the view. Depending on which side of the hotel your room is, you either have a fantastic view of the Temple of Zeus or a view of the Acropolis, if you are on the upper floors. Was met with small snack upon arrival and checked into room without any problems. The second best thing about this hotel is location. It is very near the Acropolis Metro station and a stop for the Hop on Hop off bus. The top floor breakfast buffet was great! The view from the breakfast buffet was unbelievable!!!! One side is the Temple of Zeus, the other is the Acropolis. Overall this is a very good hotel for a traveler on a site seeing mission!

Room Tip: High floors are good. Front is a little noisy from traffic, but you have a fantastic view. The high...

Just back in London after five wonderful nights at Athens Gate - a great, reasonably priced hotel in a perfect location. Our room was on the 4th floor overlooking the Temple of Zeus - the other side has Acropolis views but only on the higher floors. A drawback might be the busy main road but we had no problem sleeping. All the staff were really friendly, particularly in the rooftop restaurant at breakfast times. Rooms and cleaning service were impeccable. An easy walk from the Acropolis, Plaka and metro, and the excellent red city tour bus stops almost outside. We'd happily stay here again anytime.

The Athens Gate Hotel was awesome in every single way. It was even more beautiful than the photos, a close walk to everything, helpful staff, delicious breakfast. My room had a balcony with an awesome view of the ruins. They called taxis for us, mailed postcards, made spa appointments, etc. The room was awesome. I seriously can't recommend this place enough.

Room Tip: Ask to be on he side with the ruins

The hotel is conveniently located about 150 metres from the Acropolis Metro station. The rooms are handsomely appointed, quiet and clean.. The cleaning service is unobtrusive and thorough.
The roof garden, where a filling breakfast buffet is served, has commanding views of the Acropolis and surrounds. The desk staff are courteous and very helpful.

Room Tip: I was on the third floor, which was quiet, but not high enough to get any views towards the Acropoli...

We spent three nights in Athens at The Athens Gate Hotel. It is in a ideal location right across from the Temple of Zeus. The breakfast was very good and you can see The Acropolis and the Parthenon from the rooftop dining area. I highly suggest it. You will love it!

Loved the location within walking distance of most all the major tourist locations. The views for the restaurant on the top floor were breathtaking! The Parthenon was almost in the backyard and the Temple of Zeus was in the front yard. We walked to the plaza shopping area, the angora, and the new Parthenon museum!
