    Handy location, great views even from the room, nice breakfast in the beautiful rooftop restaurant, professional courteous staff.

    If you want your room to be absolutely quiet at night, be aware that this one is next to a busy road. Didn't bother me, though, as the windows are quite soundproof.

    Outstanding location for sightseeing. Friendly helpful staff. Nice breakfast and small but comfortable and quiet room that faced the alley. Highly Recommend for travelers that are there to see Athens.

    We had booked & paid before the financial crisis and were traveling in Europe when the riots were being shown on TV. Contacted by email, the hotel staff responded in flawless English to reassure us and give us very precise directions on how to get to the hotel. While we were there, a one-day taxi strike occurred. The staff put notices in the elevators a day ahead and counseled any guests with travel plans that would be disrupted. The Athens Gate has a large staff for the small number of guests. They were unfailingly pleasant, well-spoken and helpful. The rooftop restaurant is very good, with a wonderful view of the Acropolis. We loved the location, really enjoyed our stay and recommend to all.

    The hotel provides WiFi in the rooms for a daily fee and has two PCs and a printer in the lobby for free use. That might have passed a few years ago, but no one now pays for WiFi. The shared PCs are fine, but everyone needs to print out boarding passes and there was often a waiting line. They should make the large lobby a free WiFi area and provide plug-ins for the many travelers with their own equipment. There's a bar in the lobby, which would then get more use. We were traveling with a college student grandchild who is just accustomed to being online and doesn't want to have to hibernate in her room to get online.

    Fabulous

    The location is very good. Just a few minutes to the nearest Metro station. Good for sight seeing. The hotel staff is helpful and kindness. The roof (breakfast area) view is excellant.

    The hotel room is quite small.

    Fabulous

    Location in the city center, all main places of interest can be reached by foot, staff was always helpful, cleaning also was at high level. We also ordered service of babysitter, it was a nice Russian lady from housekeeping called Elena, special thanks to her.

    Noisy Syngrou road, we changed our room to the inner small street, but all the same noise was audible.

    Lovely staff, very clean, nice rooms. Manages to be cosy, intimate and elegant on the same time. Good breakfast with great view, lovely fruits, fresh fruit salad, feta, olives, home-made cakes, flavourful vegetables, nice granola, tasty bacon etc. But rubbery eggs and omelette and boring breakfast meats. Good quality schampo, towels etc.Roof top restaurant very good but over-priced.

    No free internet, no coffee making facilities in the room. Shower is weak. Breakfast area over-crowded.

    Great location - walking distance from Acropolis, Plaka and all the key sights in Athens. Very helpful staff - good breakfast and wondeful roof top dining with a view on the Parthenon.

    Pillows a bit hard, lifts a bit slow.

    The location was excellent. A great view of the Acropolis from the rooftop and a short walk to the restaurants, shops and historical sites. Bus stops and access to teh subway are all very close by. The staff was also very friendly and helpful. The included breakfast was also very good (variety of hot and cold foods)

    The view of the Temple of Zeus was lovely (directly across the street) but the room faces a busy street that is very noisy during the day and quite noisy even in the middle of the night. For some, the extra cost for the view might not outweigh the volume of noise during the wee hours of the morning.

    The kindness and helpfulness of the staff. I did not get the name of the very kind, gentle, thoughtful gentleman at reception. He was there when we checked in on Thursday afternoon, October 14. I walk with a cane. And every time he saw me with full hands or in any form of distress he rushed to assist me.

    Lack of accessability to ice
