    Breakfast for the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus.”
    We have a total of four adults.this is the first time I have stayed and booked 2 rooms, all facing the Temple of Zeus.Fascinating landscape! Stayed for a total of four nights,the house is clean and has a good balcony. The hotel staff is very friendly and polite! It also guides us how to get to the Acropolis. Of course, we all managed to reach the Acropolis, because it is really close to the Acropolis. For breakfast, although there are not many choices, the quality is very good.And every morning you can watch the Acropolis and the Temple of Zeus and have breakfast. Breakfast has both indoor and outdoor options, and is located on the top floor! The staff is more active and asks guests if they want coffee. We all smoke and the restaurant staff will provide an ashtray for outdoor dining for smokers. The front desk staff at The Athens Gate Hotel will help guests to find a taxi to pick up guests to their destination, which is a good service.

    Amazing location. Phenomenal views from the hotel of the Temple of Zeus and the Acropolis. No need for a taxi when you’re here - everything is with walking distance. Nice rooms and a very friendly staff too. The free umbrellas to use were also very much appreciated when there was an unexpected storm.

    I was told the entire hotel was non smoking but in Greece that’s a challosince the rooms have balconies. I can tell it was smoked in I asked for another room but it smelled too so I just stayed put. It’s a turn off but everything else was fine. One block from everything that you want to see do and eat.

    Overly priced and poor wifi connection”
    Location is convenient and view is nice, room is decent. But given the price, there are better options elsewhere. And internet is not acceptable, on and off regularly, cannot depend on it. As noted by other reviewers before, if you are facing the Temple of Olympian Zeus (the side with the nice view), you will also be facing traffic noises which last well into the night. Guess that's the trade off, but again with the price, you will have to judge if it's worth it.

    Excellent location and views from the top floor”
    checked in by Vasilis whose a friendly person and he also guided us on directions perfectly. We chose this hotel to stay at because of their claims of the view of the temple of Zues and Acropolis and indeed it did, especially at breakfast on the rooftop. My wife and I enjoyed the views so much that we even spent our dinner time there. During drinks and dinner time our server was Aris. The wine bottle we ordered was exceptional and worth the 50 odd euros it costed. Though, I must say I think Aris was in some sort of a hurry, because we had just started drinking our wine and he kept coming back thrice to ask us if we were ready to order our starters and the again for the main course. We initially thought of having 2 bottle but were all done with dinner just after 1 so we decided to change the place. The breakfast every morning was excellent. Though, it's not huge array, the spread is good enough and the taste and flavours were bang on. I think this hotel lives up to its description on website and TA. An excellent place to stay in Athens.

    Great hotel, staff and location”
    location, close to everything, location
    The hotel was clean and tidy, (room 201) the breakfast great and the view from the eating area was unbeatable. On arrival we requested a room with a bath, the girl on reception and extremely helpful and nothing was to much trouble for her. Within 5 minutes we had a room that met all our needs and with a picture postcard view. We would certainly recommend this hotel. We caught a public bus from the airport to the hotel. 5 euros and you buy the ticket from inside the airport terminal. The bus (x95) takes about 45 minutes to the drop off at Syntahma square. The bus was right outside the exit from the terminal and was easy to find. It’s about a 15 minute walk to the hotel. Mostly on a downhill decline if you have a bit of luggage. Like most tourist attractions these days, to beat the crowds get to them early. If you buy a ticket to the Parthenon area (12 euros) in lasts for 4 days and gets you into several other historical site areas so don’t throw it away. Taxi to the airport including luggage 41 euros. We left early in the morning the staff prepared a small breakfast to take with us. Staff were helpful and friendly, reception check in and out was quick and hassle free. The location is tremendous. Close to the major tourist attractions and most are within walking distance, You want have any trouble finding somewhere to eat because the hotel is near the heart of the dining and tourist precinct. Shopping for souvenirs was also found within this precinct. There are a number of small travel agents around the area so you can choose from a number of day (or longer) trips to the Islands and sights on the main land.

    Location, fantastic friendly service, best view in town
    from the moment the door was opened by a welcoming staff member, our stay was wonderful. The room was clean and comfortable but the real joy of this place is the location with its wonderful (best in town) rooftop view of the Acropolis, and the friendly, helpful staff. Nothing was too much trouble, staff remembered us and the restaurant/ bar manger is a gem. Can't recommend this hotel highly enough, especially after staying in Avery nearby, more expensive hotel which just didn't compare.

    Acropolis and the temple of zeus is a stone throw away
    The hotel has the best view in athens, the acropolis view and the temple of zeus view, the museum is next door, the park which i like the most is the hotel is walking distance to plaka area and the athens flea market. But if u are lazy to walk for 15 minutes take a cab which wont cost you more then euro 5. The hotel has a very nice roof top, with free internet access on the roof top and they also has 2 computers in the lobby for the internet usage. The hotel receptions were very friendly and helpful. The beds was very confortable and nice

    We returned to Athens Gate after our trip to santorini since we loved it so much when we went there before going to santorini. The hotel is right on the perimeter of e plaka so incredibly convenient for strolling with the baby in the stroller for walks around the acropolis and dinner in the plaka area. Will be recommending this hotel to all our friends and family.

    The staff greeted us warmly and our room was exactly as described. We opted for a room that faced Zeus' temple and it was worth it for us. The breakfast was delicious and a variety a food, hot and cold. Eggs, bacon, pastries, Greek yogurt, dried fruit and nuts, and many other items that were all good. I would take a piece of fruit for a snack later in the day. The biggest issue was the wi-if was poor quality. We were there for 4 days and it was never good. We were unable to upload pictures to get them off our devices so that limited us in what pictures we could take during future days. When wanting to have drinks on the rooftop at sunset, staff said all the tables were reserved for dinner parties. They reluctantly seated us and we watched the sunset while eating dessert. The 5 open tables never filled. Another day I was heading out to visit Zeus temple across the street. Two staff told me it closed at 4 pm. That didn't sound right to me, I checked and it closed at 8 pm.

    If you are traveling to Athens to see the sights, two days is perfect. I highly recommend booking The Athens Gate hotel. Generously sized patios, unbelievable views of the Acropolis and Athens Gate, and the best rooftop breakfast in the city is what you will find! It is right next to the main hop on / hop off buses and many affordable restaurants and the Akropolis train stop is just behind the hotel.
