"Great hotel in a great location"
We stayed at Athens Gate for 3 nights and were very happy with our choice. The hotel is in a great location; everything you'd want to see and great restaurants are very close. The hotel itself is nice, and breakfast at the rooftop restaurant was wonderful! The staff was very helpful as well. We had to leave very early our last morning to catch our flight, […] and they packed us a breakfast to-go! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location for sightseeing"
Very nice hotel which has a lot of the little things that other Greek hotels don't....facial tissue, washcloths, etc. We had great service from the staff not only from reception but also from the rooftop restaurant. Breakfast was hot and delicious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was located near Athens attractions and the metro station is 3 minutes walk. Breakfast is good and the view fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location. Courteous staff. Very nice breakfast with view of Acropolis.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location and pretty good hotel."
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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good value, perfect location"
This hotel provides a great value for a clean, modern, and comfortable place to stay near all the main attractions of Athens! The pros are that it's within walking distance of restaurants, attractions, and the metro. The rooftop breakfast is wonderful and has great views of the Acropolis! The negatives are that the rooms are on the small side and the […] wifi is super slow. But still a great value! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful hotel in the center of it all!"
The Athens Gate Hotel was an excellent choice for our short visit to Athens. Located in the Plaka district, it was a short walk to the Acropolis and the museum. Eating establishments were abundant and the staff at the hotel was exceptional.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel close to everything you need"
This is our first time to Athens. We were glad that stayed in Athens gate , everything is walkable distance , staff are very helpful and friendly, restaurant has wonderful view. We believe if we come back , will definitely choose Athens gate again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Hotel with Great Location"
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay at the Athens Gate. The location is great providing easy access to all of the major sights. The restaurant/bar on the top floor provides a great view of the Acropolis and surrounding area. The people at the front desk were very helpful and the service and food quality at the restaurant were excellent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel in great location with great view!!"
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"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. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
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!

"The BEST of Athens"
The best location and views in Athens. Close to all scenic sites, the old town, shopping and restaurants. The staff is warm, friendly and professional and most speak fluent English. The breakfast buffet is extensive and fresh each morning. The restaurant serves a variety of items for all tastes. I will definaty return to The Athens Gate!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Located in the center of Athens"
Athens Gate was recommended by a friend and we stayed one night. You can take the bus from the airport and it's about a 10 minute walk to the hotel. It was much cheaper than taking a taxi! The room was small but fine. The bed was ok and not super soft. The room was very clean and they provide free Wi-Fi. The hotel is within a short walking distance […] of restaurants and sites.

"Perfect Location with Fantastic Service"
Very kind staff. They stored our bags while we took an overnight tour to Meteora. They allowed us to check in early when we arrived from our flight because they had a room available. They gave us helpful directions to places we wanted to go. The breakfast was fresh and delicious. The view of the Acropolis was amazing because the hotel is perfectly situated […] between the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus.

"Great location to see major attractions"
The Athens Gate Hotel is in a wonderful location to see the major attractions such as Acropolis, Handrian's Arch, Temple of Zeus, etc. It is also within walking distance of the Acropolis Museum and several eateries/shopping. The hotel is overall clean and well maintained. The breakfast buffet is open for a longer period of time which is nice if you […] wake up early or late. On the day of our checkout we had a very early flight and the hotel packed 2 breakfast boxes to go. That was a real bonus! The hotel will help arrange whatever you are looking to do - massage, transportation, tours, etc. Everyone was very nice. There is no workout facility but they do have a relationship with another hotel where you can use their facilities. It was a nice solution. I would recommend this hotel for your stay in Athens.

"Lovely smaller hotel in central Plaka area"
Lovely hotel, beautifully finished without being over the top as many of the big hotel chains are. They have friendly courteous staff and it is very close to all the central Athens tourist spots. It overlooks the ancient Temple of the Olympian Zeus. The top floors and the rooftop restaurant have magnificent views of the Parthenon. We walked everywhere […] from here.

My partner and I stayed three nights at this hotel. The location, staff, room, cleanliness, hospitality,.......everything, were excellent. We were greeted after a long overnight trip from Boston with 2 cool glasses of water and local sweets. the room was spacious by any standard, cool and clean. The upstairs roof deck, views and food were all great. […] We departed at 4AM and were greeted by hot coffee and a boxed breakfast to go as we were leaving too early for the breakfast that went with the room stay. And, the breakfast was gourmet, plentiful and had everything you would like,.......hot food, fruits etc. A rich buffet. Everything far exceeded expectations and I would stay there again in a minute when returning to Athens. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great Hotel Rude Waitress"
I was so excited to get to this hotel after spending time in Santorini then visiting the Acropolis. It is in an awesome location. Hotel is clean, beautiful and the employees are very accommadating. We had an early flight the next morning and couldn't make breakfast so they made an awesome take out meal for me and the husband. The waitress in the restaurant […] of the hotel was a totally different situtation. My husband and I were unaware of having to make reservations for dinner. We arrived they told us all tables with a view of the Acropolis were reserved but non view areas were open. We gladly sat elsewhere and was fine. Another gust who was by himself overheard our conversation and offered us his sit. He said he was alone and was only drinking coffee but to mention it to the waitress first. My husband walked over to the waitress and told her the man just arrived and wanted to offer us his table when she rudely rolled her eyes and smiled then told us she can't offer us the table. After a back and forth discussion about the table between her and my husband I told my husband to not worry about it and we will leave. We went downstairs and informed the front desk but the manager was out for the weekend. They apologized but it still left a very sour feeling about the hotel with me. I'd love to return one day but only if the waitress is no longer there. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for our one day in Athens!"
We only had one day in Athens before returning home from the Greek Islands. The hotel was within walking distance of the Acropolis, The Temple of Zeus and the old city (Plaka). Views of the Acropolis from the rooftop bar/restaurant were fantastic. Breakfast buffet was good. We ate dinner in the rooftop restaurant. The food was good. Room was very comfortable, […] clean and had a very nice bathroom. Service was excellent., Our room did not have a view but we did know that.. View rooms are on the front or above the 6th floor on the back. Very satisfied with our choice of hotel for the price and location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
