"Nice Hotel Close to Major Attractions"
The Athens Gate Hotel is very well situated to major Athens attractions. Across the street from Zeus Temple, a 10 minute walk to the Acropolis Museum, 10 minutes to the Acropolis entrance, 15/20 minutes to the Agora and 20 minutes to Parliament for the changing of the guard. Also 10 minutes to the Playka area - plenty of eateries, souvenirs etc. YMMV. The rooms are average size but very clean. The bathroom has all the necessary toiletries. The restaurant/breakfast room is on the 8th floor and has a fantastic view of the Acropolis and the Temple. Be sure to visit at night to get some really nice night photos of the Acropolis. Free internet in the dinning area and downstairs in the lobby area. You will be charged for it in your rooms though, the only negative in my book. All in all a really nice place to stay in Athens. If you are a light sleeper try to get a room in the back since the rooms facing the street can be noisy at night. Enjoy Athens, we will be back!

"Nice hotel - just work on the noise"
Room was comfortable and had a great view, consistent with what I had selected. Breakfast was really enjoyable in the mornings and staff was generally quite friendly. My only criticisms are that I had to pay for Wifi in the room, which I found annoying. Also, the noise from the maid service in the hall in the morning, as well as the breakfast being served on the floor above was quite noisy.

"Helpful staff and excellent location."
Staff was helpful and immediately greeted us upon arrival. Our rooms were not yet ready as it was well before check in time, but our bags and other valuables were promptly dealt with. Hotel accommodated our request for a 'quiet' room. The hotel faces a very busy street with fairly constant traffic. Room was not spacious, which is typical of many city hotels, but it was comfortable. Bathroom was a bit cramped and water tended to leak out of the shower. Free wifi in the lobby and rooftop restaurant. Would be nice to extend that to the rooms as well. A very nice buffet breakfast was included and served in the rooftop restaurant. A very nice variety of food. Coffee could be stronger though.

"Great Hotel for the Location and View"
Standard 4 star hotel with great location near the Plaka neighbourhood and great rooftop views of the Acropolis and the Temple of Olympian Zeus. Rooms are modern and clean. Ameneties are light, and service is average. Breakfast on the rooftop is a highlight with great views and food average. The only major disappoint for the hotel given the price was that it didn't include free Wifi in room, and you had to go to the Lobby or Rooftop to enjoy it. That seemed to be outdated given the times. Otherwise good location.

Loved the central location of the Athens Gate Hotel. We could walk everywhere. The rooms had all the modern conveniences you could ask for and were very quiet. Receptionists very helpful and friendly. The best feature was the fabulous breakfast of both hot and cold items on the roof top, including individually made cappuccino, and THE VIEW of the Acropolis and other monuments.

"Great Location & Views"
We arrived early in the morning after leaving our cruise ship. Our room wasn't ready, but the hotel provided storage for our bags so we could head straight for the Parthenon before the crowds arrived (they also provided bag storage after checkout so we could have lunch before our flight). It's a short walk to the Parthenon and Plaka shops, and an even shorter walk to the Acropolis Museum. The hotel also upgraded us to a room with a balcony and wonderful view of the Parthenon and Athens Museum. Although the museum top floor appeared to be dark glass in the daytime, at night we could see into the top floor of the museum, as well as the beautifully lit Parthenon at night. The top floor of the hotel is a bar/restaurant with superb views of both the Acropolis on one side and the Temple of Zeus on the opposite side. Outside tables are simply fabulous in good weather! Breakfast is also served here, and offers an excellent selection of breakfast items along with wonderful views to start your morning. Many thanks to the staff (especially John and Amalia!) for providing us with such a wonderful stay!

"Close to the action."
The hotel is close to the action and the sites. Most are all within walking distance. The restaurant has a great view but the food is average. Though better than some of the restaurants in the tourist areas. One warning is the extremely small elevators. At most you can fit 4 people or 2 people and 2 bags. Only fitting 4 people means you are always waiting for one you can fit into or just taking the stairs.

Great location right in the middle of things; very easy to get to from Syntagma Square metro stop. Very close to the Acropolis. Excellent breakfast buffet as well. The only thing I would caution is that if you select the option to have a view of the Temple of Olympian Zeus (which is a great view), you will experience a lot of noise from the traffic on the road.

Great location and updated facility. Staff very helpful and willing to go the extra mile. We stayed for 2 nights then went to Santorini for 2 nights and then returned to Athens Gate for 2 additional nights. They stored some of our luggage for the 2 nights we were at Santorini so we didn't have to haul it all with us. The breakfast buffet could have been better but the view was fantastic.

"Wonderful location close to all major Athens sites"
Our room looked out of the front of the hotel, at Zeus's temple. It was lovely to have a balcony. The room was a good size, the bed very comfortable. Air conditioning worked well. The bathroom was well equipped and the the shower easy to use with a good water flow. Free wifi was available in the restaurant and on the downstairs lobby but it was slow. Breakfast was wonderful. Amazing view over the Acropolis. The buffet was well stocked and continually maintained. We did have one dinner in the restaurant. Staff always seemed to be rushing, tables are close together and waiters rushing around does not make for a relaxing experience - acceptable at breakfast but not at dinner.

The hotel was clean and comfortable, albeit a bit cramped. The staff was friendly but not overly concerned about your stay. The location is great (right by Zeus' temple, the acropolis and Plaka). The major bummer is the 'free wifi' only works in the lobby, and if you want to check e-mails or search local places in your room, you have to pay for data plans. Overall, I would recommend this place for their location and decent rooms.

"Approved by a clean freak"
This was the perfect hotel for our group. We were only in Athens for a couple days and wanted to be close to the main tourist attractions. It was the perfect location- right across from the temple of Zeus and about two blocks from the Acropolis. Nice, clean simple hotel. The hotel staff were very nice and helpful and most importantly, housekeeping was awesome. I happened to walk in on the woman cleaning our bathroom twice and she was really scrubbing the hell out of the place. The breakfast on the rooftop was really good, and the views up there were awesome. The balconies vary based on which side of the building and how high up your room is, but we were really happy with ours. I think we were on the 5th floor and we had a nice big balcony. No amazing view or anything, but not bad either. Some people have said in other reviews that the rooms on the side of the temple of Zeus were loud, but our friends on that side didn't notice a thing. We are from NYC, so the noise was NOTHING comparatively. Maybe if you are used to living on a quiet street in the suburbs it would be loud for you? But I feel like any busy city is like that. We were very happy with the whole experience. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

"Fabulous hotel close to Acropolis"
We stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel in August. We had two rooms on the second floor. Although they were not connecting, they were at the end of the corridor and there was a door we could lock to close the corridor to the rooms; so technically, we could leave our room doors open, and still have the main door to the corridor closed and locked. The rooms were very comfortable with a nice view of Hadrian's Gate. The best feature of the hotel is the roof top restaurant with breath- taking views of the Acropolis. A hedge of mint surrounds the roof top and canopies provide shade to enjoy your meal. We only made breakfast on the last morning (our jet lag got the better of us on the other mornings), but we enjoyed lunches of salads and toasted sandwiches. The breakfast buffet is substantial and the staff are very pleasant. The hotel is in the Plaka area, so walk around the back of the hotel and you are in a pedestrian only zone, with an easy walk to the Acropolis and the new Acropolis museum, as well as many restaurants and shops. Also next door to the hotel is a Hertz office; convenient for those wishing to rent a car, as we did.

"Stay Here, Because It Is Where It Is"
Forget about the hotel itself for a second. This is a must stay hotel for its location and views alone. From my room's balcony I overlooked the Temple of Zeus. From the rooftop restaurant I overlooked the Acropolis... neither was "off in the distance" but rather, right there. Amazing views and, the room was modern and clean. Being American, the room was a bit smaller than I prefer, but for European size rooms, it was better than most. You may want to pay a bit more and get the Superior room as I did, because the spectacular views are well worth the minor price difference. As for convenience, being able to take a very short walk to the Acropolis and the "pedestrian street" with its shops and restaurants was perfect. I'm tough on hotels, but this one has my recommendation.

My stay at Athens gate hotel was great. First, I would like to say that is in a great location. The museum and the Parthenon is right around the corner. Plaka, the most lively area in Athens during the summer season, is also very close. Next, I would like to say that the service was great. Right as I arrived at the hotel there were people trying to help me with anything; directions, opening the door carrying luggage, the people working were all aware and ready to help!! Lastly, I would say that the view during breakfast was amazing! The breakfast is served at the roof top garden and you can see the whole city including the Acropolis and the Olympians of Zeus as you eating.

"Wonderful Hotel near many tourist sights (s"
We stayed at this hotel following a 10 day cruise and we found the hotel very comfortable. We stayed in a deluxe room with a view of the Temple of Zeus. The hotel has a lot of positive factors: 1. Friendly front desk staff (these people were the best and so helpful) 2. Close to many of the important / must see sights in Athens 3. Close to many great restaurants 4. Very comfortable rooms (great a/c, nice bathroom, comfortable beds) 5. Great view of the Temple of Zeus 6. Great breakfast buffet with one of the best views of the Acropolis in Athens. The hotel has one minor con: 1. On a busy road. (we heard traffic and honking all night long) We would definitely stay at this hotel again in the future. We got a great deal on Expedia, and one of the best things is that you can pay in US$ and don't have to worry about the exchange rate.

The Athens Gate has a great location and friendly desk and bell staff. It's close to shopping, cafes, the hop-on hop-off bus and has wonderful views from the rooftop restaurant (which also served very good food). Most people don't have the "opportunity" to also get great service from the desk staff for medical reasons, but unexpectedly we did. They had a doctor in our room within 20 minutes of our call, then quickly secured the ambulance. They even helped us select which private hospital we should go to!

"Honestly don't think we could have chosen better"
Location was outstanding. Walked to everything we wanted to see, and in all our walks never passed another hotel we would have wanted to stay in. Rooms were great. Modern, clean, comfortable. Loved the electronic "please make up room" and "do not disturb" signs. Those paper door hanging things are always falling off and getting in the way. Small thing, I know, and not why I chose the rating I did, but still cool. Only thing we really didn't like was breakfast. Couldn't beat the view, but the food was just Ok and the female wait staff were surly. One of them also turned out to be the mini bar person, and ignored our DO NOT DISTURB posting, knocked on the door, and kind of pushed her way in to check our minibar. Most of the front desk staff were fantastic.
