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.
