We arrived at the hotel to be greeted by a very friendly young guy who took our luggage from the taxi. We were then greeted by another helpful young chap who offered us water and went through a map giving us lots of info and tips on Athens. Reception staff also very helpful. A very welcoming start. Room very clean, modern and comfortable. Large shower and sink. Tea/coffee making facilities. Safe and fridge. TV. Balcony. Fantastic roof top restaurant on 8th floor with outstanding views of the Acropolis. Breakfast also served up there so a great start to the day! Amazing location literally 4 mins walk to Acropolis and museum. Lots of attractive pedestrian cobbled lanes filled with boutiques and pretty restaurants all within a 5 min walk. Highly recommend this Hotel.

Stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel before our cruise. Awesome hotel in a great location near Plaka. Staff were very helpful. Had to have Covid testing prior to the cruise and they were very helpful with arranging and accommodating this. Had an issue with getting the results and fortunately the Athens Gate helped us not only get the information and translate it but also printed the information for us to take to the port. One of our party didn't have their cruise documents and again Athens Gate was happy to print the information. We had a beautiful view of acropolis. The hotel was very clean and a perfect place to start our vacation. The doormen were very helpful for directions etc. Breakfast on the rooftop was delicious with lots of variety. Thank you Athens Gate Hotel for everything. You should be very proud of all of your staff and they represent your hotel very well. Exceptional stay.

Great hotel and location could literally not be any better if you are here to visit the main sites in Athens. 6 min walk to the Acropolis. We booked the family 2 room suite which was great for our family of 4. Basically it’s two connecting rooms. Price was very affordable and included a wonderful breakfast at their rooftop restaurant. Would absolutely recommend.

Most of the other reviews nailed it. To reiterate, the location (with an amazing view of the Acropolis), the hotel itself is 1st class with comfortable rooms and amenities, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, a wonderful breakfast (included), a terrific roof top restaurant (you won't believe the view up there). is walkable to the most of the magnificent attractions in Athens, and we thought a very reasonable rate for all the hotel provides.

All went well. Food was good in restaurant and breakfasts were great. Room was good and all staff were excellent. Would certainly recommend it for a stay in Athens. Quiet room at rear of hotel. No control over air conditioning in room was a little annoying but we could leave balcony door open. Could have been more of a problem at front with traffic noise

This was my second time staying at The Athens Gate Hotel. Love the location and the staff were all very helpful. The rooftop bar/restaurant is an excellent way to begin and end the day, with breakfast in the morning and drinks in the evening. The view from there could not be better!

I stayed at the hotel for 3 nights and enjoyed its surroundings. The Acropolis is a short walk and the Placa is nearby as well as Syntagma square and a huge garden. The front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. The 8th floor restaurant staff were friendly as well. The views from the 8th floor were amazing almost all day long and especially so in the early evening in through sunset.

Fairly drab (but clean) room with a lovely view over the temple of zeus. We were on the 4th floor but I imagine if you were any lower traffic noise from the main road might be an issue. The beds also were not particularly comfortable; both me an my wife had troubled sleep because of it. On the plus side, the proximity to the centre/acropolis and other sites is perfect. The view from the rooftop bar is stellar, and the shower was nice and powerful. Definitely felt like the whole place lacked effort, but for a couple days I guess you have the comfort of being within walking distance of all the touristy spots.
