"Athens gate... A hidden gem!"
We loved Athens Gate hotel. It was so central (right next door to the Plaka and all the sights), reasonably priced and a good 4 star property. The rooftop restaurant is fabulous with a view of the Acropolis on one side, and the temple of Zeus on the other side. Great food too! The staff was very helpful and the cleaning service was impeccable. Would definitely stay there again!

"Fabulous location!"
The room was great - our balcony overlooked Zeus' Temple, and the rooftop garden had spectacular views of the Acropolis as well as the entire city! The staff knew that my husband and I were celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary, and they surprised us with a bottle of wine and treats in our hotel room. Their breakfast buffet was also amazing. The only downside is that the elevators are really small, and the walls seem to be a bit thin. We had a very loud, obnoxious group of people in the room next to us, and it was easy to hear them yelling in their room and in the hallway.

"Wonderful stay in Athens"
I knew that hotel rooms in Europe are smaller than in the U.S., and with an adult daughter joining my husband and I on our recent trip, I thought it might be expensive to get a 2nd room. The rates offered for adjoining rooms at this hotel was reasonable, so I went with a 2nd room. I'm glad I did because the location of this hotel is perfect. The service was great. We were greeted warmly from the moment we checked in.

"Great location and hotel."
Perfect location! Doorman helped with luggage and brought snack and water while checking in. Staff at desk was efficient and everything was in order when we arrived. They asked about departure time the next day and offered a breakfast bag since we were leaving before breakfast was served. We got a juice box, ham and cheese sandwich, sweet bread slice, and pear. Great breakfast! (Needed a little mayo or mustard packet in the bag to add on sandwich). Bags brought to room upon arrival and doorman showed us how to wrk A/C, safe, lights, etc. Wake up call was right on time the next day. Perfect location to Acropolis, Acropolis Museum, Gates of Hadrian, Temp,e of Zeus, Plaka, etc. Felt safe walking back to hotel at 11 pm. Great night view of Acropolis from rooftop restaurant. Restaurant was a little pricey for us at the end of a long trip.

"Beyond all expectations - Best in Athens"
To say the Athens Gate Hotel was exceptional would be an understatement. After a late arrival the extremely friendly staff were attentive and made check in quick and rewarding with cold water delicious candies. Our bags were transferred upstairs and an attendant explained all the rooms amazing features. Beds were comfy, rooms were clean, bathrooms fully stocked, and the overall size was impressive for a European hotel. The view from the room was just stunning. I had room 702 and could see both the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus, plus hints of the Olympic stadium and a wonderful view of the National Gardens. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and again the staff there were amazing, helpful, and responsive. The view from the restaurant was equally amazing as the staff. The hotels location to the Acropolis and the Acropolis Museum was so convenient as well as being close to shops and restaurants for lunch or quick snacks. Check out was great and quick and again the helpful staff was so wonderful, it was a real shame to leave. This was by far the best hotel experience I have ever had while in Europe and I fully intend to return....eventually!

A bit difficult to find at first for us since we were unfamiliar, but this hotel is in a perfect location close to everything and walking distance to Acropolis, Syntagma square, the gardens, Plaka, and the temple of Zeus is right across the street. Hotel staff were so very nice, from the front desk, to the bellhop, to the free breakfast waiters, and the maids. Everyone was so nice, even upon our arrival when I was in a bad mood and cranky from getting off a long flight and having trouble trying to find the hotel.

We received first class treatment at this hotel. Everything was wonderful; staff was friendly, respectful, helpful; the room was great--down to the comfy beds! Location is absolutely the best, with many of the "tourist" spots within walking distance, and just two short blocks to the Metro. Breakfast at the rooftop garden with a 360-degree of Athens that is breathtaking. Who could ask for more?

"Great Location - Amazing Views"
I highly recommend Athens Gate Hotel for its location and fabulous views of the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. The views from the rooftop bar/restaurant are amazing. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff were very helpful and efficient. The Temple of Zeus is directly across the street and the Acropolis and the museum are a short walk up the hill. There is a nice shopping area with many restaurants a couple of blocks away. The Hop on/off bus stops very near to the hotel. The rooms on the front have great views but there is a lot of traffic noise from the street below. The rooms on the back are very quiet and a few have great views of the Acropolis.

"Gate way to a Great vacation."
Front desk and door staff on duty twenty four hours was significant because of my late arrival. In addition, because the airline mis-placed my baggage, the front desk was able to make regular checks on the status of the luggage coming from the airport. Extremely polite and professional. The doorman were all able to provide directions to nearby attractions that are mostly within walking distance. Also the doorman gave taxi cab drivers instructions when I needed to go outside the historic district so I did not need to speak a word of Greek. The room and amenities were very modern and spotless. Maid service even comes around in the evenings and leaves candy on your pillow or night stand just like on the cruise ships! But the part of the hotel which I must admit that I looked forward to each day was having breakfast in the rooftop restaurant. The variety of fresh fruit and juices along with all the other treats in the breakfast buffet menu was enough to remind you of what a vacation is suppose to be. What a way to start your day! But it get's better. Watching the sun gradually lite the Acropolis and surrounding hill tops while sitting outside on the terrace of the restaurant just offers so many wonderful photo opportunities. Location location location. It does not get any better than the Athens Gate Hotel. This is the Gate way to a great vacation.

"Excellent place for Athens vacation"
My husband and I loved staying here. We were welcomed with water and Greek candies, and that was indicative of the friendliness of all the staff we encountered. Our room was clean, beds had white sheets, and included things such as a safe and slippers, although the slippers were relatively thin. Also, by the time we were there (March 2015), they included free wifi, which I know from reviews is relatively recent! The wifi was fast enough to watch movies, with some buffering. Our room was I think one of the most basic room types, we were on the 1st floor, but we had some view of the Temple of Zeus which was a pleasant surprise. The bathroom was large and clean and had all the amenities I usually expect, including tissue paper and a (slow) hairdryer. I don't remember if you could request extras such as shaving/toothpaste etc. It was a little dark inside the bathroom. The included buffet breakfast was the same (almost exactly) both times we were there, but was very nice. There were hot options (eggs, bacon/sausage and perhaps potatos?) and a lot of other options (breads, meats, cheeses, dolma and other savory side dishes; pastries; fruits). There were 2 types of juices (grapefruit & orange) and hot beverage service. We were very happy with the selection for breakfast, and were pleased with the wait staff. Breakfast started at 6:45 and ended quite late (I believe around 10?) and we were there once at 6:45 and once around 9:30 yet did not have to wait for a table either time.

"Good Athens Choice"
We had a comfortable stay. It is a pretty standard room that you expect to find in any nice hotel chain and was pretty modern. Rooms were comfortable and very clean. They offered a nice free breakfast on their roof top restaurant which had wonderful views. You could also eat a nice dinner at this same restaurant for average price. The location was great and within walking distance of the major attractions. This was a good choice for us for a good price. Just don't expect a lot of "character" if that is what you are after.

Although location of the hotel is appealing, room facilities were not satisfactory. Air conditioning was not working well and some amnesties like tea/coffee was not available. The day of chck-in front line desk staff ignored our presence and never assisted with baggage and kept us waiting for five or more minutes without a single acknowledgement of our presence answering a call! However, there was an exceptional steward at the restaurant who was extremely helpful and very pleasant. After all its people who make the difference!

The hotel is one a Main Street and just two blocks from the Acropolis Metro station. It is right next to the Acropolis and has a rooftop bar and restaurant that has to be one of the best possible views of the nighttime Acropolis. The rooms have been refurbished and the check-in and check-out were fast and easy. This is a great travelers hotel. The street it is on isn't exactly elegant but there ar parks and gardens within a block. don't know how you could top this hotel for seeing Athens.
