          Great "New" Hotel


          Athens is a large, busy city that can be confusing or intimidating to those who haven't visited it before. The solution? Stay at a great hotel, where personal service is the hallmark.

          The Athens Gate Hotel has got everything (well, almost everything) going for it! The location is superb for sightseeing and public transportation. The hotel itself has been totally renovated, from the ground up, in a sleek, sexy and very comfortable fashion. (The owners are in the textile business and from what they did w/the Athens Gate, they obviously have exquisite taste.)

          From the moment you walk into the hotel, your greeting is warm and welcoming! And, it only gets better, the longer you stay. Everyone, from the Front Desk people to the Lobby Bar man was personable and professional. You would be lucky if you had Michael, at the Front Desk ck you-in. He was welcoming, helpful and genuinely warm. I had a drink downstairs in the Lobby (while using the Internet) and John, the Lobby Bar guy, could not have been nicer or more pleasant.

          The rooms are elegant and cool, with polished wood floors and gorgeous double curtains (including a black-out one.) The bathroom is large (for Athens or most European cities) beautifully done-up in simple, yet elegant marble-like tile and wood accents. The shower was powerful, the towels were pure cotton-- big, thick and terrific!

          Best of all, get a room over-looking the Temple of Zeus, which is magnificently flood-lit at night. There are floor to ceiling windows & a door to the terrace outside. Even if you don't go outside (there are no chairs or tables on the terraces) the view is gorgeous. There is hardly any street noise, due to heavy insulation and double-pane glass.

          Lastly, the breakfast, served daily on the Roof Garden, is not only delcioius and lavish (yes, freshly squeezed orange juice, too!) but you have one of Athen's quintessential views: the Parthenon and the Acropolis on one side and the Temple of Zeus and Hadrian's Arch on the other.

          The owners of The Athens Gate have not only attended to the details of organizing & running a hotel, but they obviously want their guests to feel welcomed and "at home." This is a rare combination today, except in a very select few super-deluxe hotels. It's a delight to find such courtesies and warmth in a small, new hotel. I highly recommend a stay here!

          Ein groaßartiges Hotel!


          Die Lage ist spitze. Vor dem Zeustempel, in der Nähe der Akropolis, Plaka und Syndagma sind zu Fuß schnell erreichbar. Ein rundherum renoviertes Hotel. Schöne eingerichtete Zimmer mit Balkon und ein hübsches Badezimmer.

          Ein gutes Frühstück auf der Dachterrasse mit Blick auf die Akropolis. Von der Terrasse hat man einen Blick von 360 Grad auf Athen (siehe Bilder). Ein großartiges Hotel! Zu guter Letzt... das Personal reagiert auf Ihre Wünsche sehr zuvorkommend und ist sehr hilfsbereit. Ein gut geführtes Hotel. Damit kann man nichts falsch machen!

          Great location. In front of the Temple of Zeus, close to the Acropolis, a short walk to Plaka and Syndagma. Completely renovated hotel. Nicely appointed rooms with balcony. Nice bathroom. Good breakfast on the roof top terrace overlooking the Acropolis. Terrace with a 360 degree view of Athens (see pictures). Great place to stay ! Last but not least...Staff very attentive to your needs and very helpful. Well run establishment. Can't go wrong !

          M.M. - Montreal

          Super adresse !


          Très bien situé. En face du Temple de Zeus, tout près de l'Acropole. A côté du Plaka et de Syndagma. Hôtel entièrement rénové. Belle chambre avec balcon. Jolie salle de bains. Excellent petit déjeuner sur la terrasse avec vue sur l'Acropole. La terrasse dispose d'une vue à 360 degrés d'Athènes (reportez-vous aux photos). Super adresse !

          Enfin et surtout : personnel aux petits soins pour tous nos souhaits. Ils se sont montrés très efficaces. Etablissement bien géré. On ne peut pas se tromper !

          Un sitio genial en el que alojarse


          Muy bien situado. Enfrente del templo de Zeus, cerca de la Acrópolis, a un breve paseo de Plaka y Syndagma. Un hotel completamente renovado. Habitaciones bien equipadas, con balcón. Buen baño. Sirven un buen desayuno en la terraza, con vistas a la Acrópolis. Terraza con vistas de 360º de Atenas (ver fotos). Un sitio genial en el que alojarse. El personal es muy atento a todas tus necesidades, y muy serviciales. Un lugar bien dirigido. Si vais, no os equivocaréis.

          Athens Gate Hotel Superb!!!


          Well-travelled Canadians from Sudbury, Ontario. The Athens Gate Hotel

          was superb!!! We loved it!

          SERVICE: Our stay began with a warm welcome from staff and throughout

          our five day stay we were provided with the most superior service from management and staff. Better than 5 Star service. From the front

          desk clerk to the manager, all were welcoming, friendly, polite and generous with their time. All requests were addressed immediately. We

          forgot how to open our safe and help arrived within 5 minutes.

          HOTEL FACILITY: The entire hotel had just been totally renovated and the modern rooms, bathrooms, and entire facility, were IMMACULATE. Crisp white linens dressed the comfy beds and each time we returned from our jaunts about Athens, our room had been freshened up.

          LOCATION: Spectacular! Overlooking Hadrian's Gate & the Temple of Zeus, mere steps from the Acropolis and the Plaka. Walking distance to the Stadium, Flea Market, Parliament and shopping district and the

          metro just outside the rear of the hotel. In the Roof Garden Restaurant we enjoyed sumptuous breakfasts, with unlimited fresh squeezed orange juice, beautifully served by the most attentive staff, while gazing up at the Acropolis and the Parthenon framed by a

          clear brilliant blue sky.

          The cleanliness, convenient location, service, friendliness of staff made our stay in Athens even more special. We felt very much at home.

          We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND The Athens Gate Hotel to anyone visiting Athens. SUPERIOR VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY!

          Das Athens Gate Hotel ist spitze!!!


          Wir sind viel gereiste Kanadier aus Sudbury, Ontario. Das Athens Gate Hotel war erstklassig!!! Wir fanden es spitze!

          SERVICE: Unser Aufenthalt begann mit einem freundlichen Empfang durch das Personal und während unseres gesamten Aufenthaltes boten uns das Management und das Personal den allerbesten Service. Besser als 5-Sterne-Service. Vom Angestellten and der Rezeption bis zum Manger waren alle offenherzig, freundlich, höflich und nahmen sich viel Zeit. Auf alle Bitten wurde sofort reagiert. Wir vergaßen, wie der Safe geöffnet wurde und 5 Minuten später kam Hilfe.

          DIE HOTELANLAGE: Das gesamte Hotel ist gerade erst rundherum renoviert worden und die modernen Zimmer, Badezimmer und die gesamte Anlage waren TADELLOS. Die bequemen Betten waren mit blütenweißen Laken bezogen und jedes Mal, wenn wir von unseren Ausflügen in Athen zurückkamen, war unser Zimmer sauber gemacht worden.

          DIE LAGE: Atemberaubend! Mit Blick auf das Hadrianstor und den Zeustempel, nur ein paar Schritte von der Akropolis und der Plaka entfernt. Das Stadion, das Parlament, der Flohmarkt und das Einkaufsviertel sind zu Fuß erreichbar und die U-Bahn fährt direkt hinter dem Hotel. Im Restaurant auf dem Dachgarten genossen wir ein üppiges Frühstück mit unbegrenztem, frisch gepresstem Orangensaft, das von den aufmerksamsten Angestellten wunderbar serviert wurde, während wir die Akropolis und den Parthenon bestaunten, die von einem klaren, blauen Himmel umrahmt wurden.

          Durch die Sauberkeit, die günstige Lage, den Service und die Freundlichkeit des Personal wurde unser Aufenthalt sogar noch besonderer. Wir fühlten uns wie zu Hause. Wir können das Athens Gate Hotel jedem, der nach Athen reist, WÄRMSTENS EMPFEHLEN. EIN HERVORRAGENDES PREIS-LEISTUNGSVERHÄLTNIS!

          Un hôtel moderne et élégant, un accueil à son image


          Nous étions de retour de Rhodes et en transit, ce qui nous a permis de découvrir un hotel moderne et élégant, dans un quartier très agréable (et plus reposant que Monastiraki) qui donne une autre vision de l'Acropole et d'Athenes.

          L'accueil est chaleureux et attentionné (vérification que le taxi est bien réservé pour l'aéroport), le lounge très confortable avec des canapés et des livres d'art (pas des brochures) sur la Grèce et Athènes.

          La chambre (n°513) n'etait pas immense mais bien pensée (penderie ..), la salle de bains élégante et fonctionnelle.

          Notre vol était à 6h15 a.m. soit un départ à 3h15 a.m. La jeune femme de l'accueil a eu la gentillesse de nous servir un vrai café, ce qui nous a fait regretter de ne pas goûter au petit déjeuner...

          Au final, un très bon hotel, avec un personnel attentionné, dans un quartier agréable. A privilégier absolument pour découvrir Athenes.

          Re-Done and Well Done


          The Hotel Recently has had a major overhaul and face-lift. The staff is especially courteous, friendly and helpful. Stavro particularly should be commended as he gave the place the feel of staying at a friend's as opposed to a hotel. The location is prime, only steps away from Plaka and the Acropolis and accross the street from the Temple of Zeus.

          The rooms are comfortable and clean, having been recently re-done. I found the decor tastful, a bit 60's retro with definite greek influences. My room had an excellent view of the temple of Zues and Lecabetus. No restaurant as of yet as the Rooftop Garden is being renovated. Breakfast was complementary and very well done.

          Wold highly recommend for those who want a convenient location, reliable service and an impeccable environment, whether in Athens for buisness or tourism.

          Looking forward to welcome you again some time in the future,

          yours sincerely,

          Petros Karadontis

          Watching the sun set over the Parthenon with a great meal and lots of wine. I think this a check on the bucket list. The blue of the fading hills and orange in the sky was truly majestic.
