“GREAT HOTEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

I stayed at the Athens Gate hotel the last two years when i visited Greece.Its a great hotel, the rooms are not very big, but they are very clean , with all the amenities, you expect. All the rooms have fantastic view of the temple of Zeus, and the Acropolis.The is breakfast is out of this world, and its been served on the roof gardens. The roof gardens also is used to serve dinner, and from there you have excellent view of the Acropolis ,and the city at night.The location of the hotel is a big plus , located in the center of the city , close to Acropolis, Syntagma , Metro,Plaka . and the tomb of the unknown soldier, where the national guards are protecting, must see.The staff are all very nice,and all speak English. One more thing the hotel is with a walking distance to X95 bus stop . X95 bus from the airport only 5 euros
I highly recommend it , and i will be back this August.

Athens Gate hotel is a great choice for a short stay in Athens. It is in the middle of all of the important attractions with breathtaking views. The rooms are comfortable and the wifi is free and works well in the lobby and on the beautiful Rooftop bar and restaurant. I highly recommend this affordable hotel!

Room Tip: If you love views it is worth the top rooms with a balcony overlooking the Acropolis. If you don'...

This hotel is perfectly situated for a visit to all the attractions that Athens has to offer. The check in by Amalia was quick and pleasant.....she was a good sign of things to come. The room was very large for an European city hotel and was very clean with all the amenities you will need. As all the reviewers say, the view from the top floor bar/restaurant is spectacular. We had dinner there and the service was impeccable and the food was very good as well. This hotel has a lot going for it.... great location..... nice rooms and wonderful views of the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus.... but it was the staff that made our visit one of our best at any hotel we have stayed at (and we travel extensively). We would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: We had an inside room. No view, but very quiet.

Room is comfortable and quiet. Service in the lobby and in the 8th floor lounge is wonderful. Easy walk to the Acropolis, central market and other sights. Views from 8th floor are spectacular. Great place to stay.

Excellent location to visit the city: next to Plaka, Akropolis, Syntagma, conference centre (Zappeio), .... and most of other touristic areas. The hotel is located at a busy street, but just arround the corner start the pedestrian streets of the marvelous Plaka district.
The hotal has very nice rooms with terraces. Best view is on the rooftop restaurant (akropolis and temple of Olympian Zeus). Also staff is very helpfull and nice.
Easy to get there (Metro to Syntagma is faster than bus X95).

Room Tip: The best view is of course at the back (Akropolis), but only on the 7th floor (but you pay a lot for...

We stayed at Athens Gate Hotel in June 2013. It was a beautiful hotel. Great service and staff in the bar /restaurant on the roof. NOT TO MENTION THE VIEW!!!!! The front desk staff too, wonderful, helpful, and professional. We enjoyed everything about our stay. Highly recommend this lovely hotel!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for just one night whilst en route to a ship at nearby Piraeus.
The staff were charming, the very good (limited choice) restaurant on the top floor with a clear view of the Parthanon stayed open until late.
The rooms were very clean and well equipped with wi-fi available free in the hotel lounge area.
Breakfast was excellent with a good variety of offerings.
The taxi from the airport was only £25 and to Piraeus was £14 - bargains.
Another plus is the very good red bus hop on/hop off tour of Athens city, bus stops are only 100 yards from the hotel (hope that the bus gets stuck in a traffic jam in the market area which is an experience in itself!), as is a busy side street street with cafe's and other facilities.
All rooms in the hotel have to have a good view as in one direction the rooms face the Parthanon (upper floors) and the other the Temple of Zeus (all floors).
This isn't the smartest most lavish hotel in Athens (number 6 we were told by the hotel) but one would not be able to find a better location and value.
Richard and Suzie George

Room Tip: Any!!! If you want to be very quiet ask for a Parthanon view - upper floors.
