I visited Athens for the fourth time this past August with my husband and two teenage daughters. Because of amazing airfares, we decided to do a budget excursion to Athens and Naxos. My husband and I, and two teenage daughters stayed in two budget internal rooms for $150 a night per room. These rooms were very comfortable, clean and quiet- I will definitely stay here the next time I travel to Athens. I have also recommended this hotel to family, and my sister and her daughter stayed here this past October.
This hotel has an unbeatable location. It is located across from the Temple of Zeus; I guess it's location would be the Plaka but it is quite close to the Acropolis area as well. Upon our arrival in Athens, we took the express bus from the Athens airport to Syntagma Square. From this square, it is an easy 15 minute walk to the Athens Gate Hotel. The staff was very welcoming and greeted us with cold glasses of water and a tray of sweets. We arrived before check-in time ( at about 10:30 am) but our rooms were ready. The rooms were very simply designed and decorated- we did not have great views but we only paid $150 a night per room- great views are to be had for more money. I found our rooms to be very comfortable- I have no complaints at all about them.
A special extra that this hotel offers is a superb roof garden restaurant/bar where breakfast (included in our room rate) was offered daily. My husband and I also enjoyed ending our evening with a nightcap and the great views.
This hotel is a great value- very comfortable, clean rooms with an amazing location. I hadn't been completely satisfied with the other Athens Hotels that I stayed at but this one is a winner!
