We rented a three bedroom hotel room in May 2017. The hotel was very clean and updated. The room had three twin or twin xl beds in it. Small and tight but very usable. The shower was very clean and well laid out. The room included a buffet breakfast every morning. The breakfast was very good. The roof top breakfast...

The hotel was in a very strategic location - within walking distance to all the major sights, e.g. the Acropolis Museum, the Acropolis, the Temple of Olympian Zeus, Syntagma Square, the ancient Olympic stadium, etc. Check-in was quick and efficient and the 360 degree views from the hotel's rooftop restaurant was unbeatable. We loved the young lady who waited on...

This hotel was amazing. The rooms were very clean. The bathroom was spotless. The location was great, so close to the metro and Acropoli. Id say the Zeus view rooms can get a little noisy at night and early morning! The staff seem lovely especially the housekeepers. All in all a positive stay. Would I come back if I were...

The hotel is walking distance to everything you'll need for your trip to see the sights of Athens. Although the rooms are very very small, they are well appointed and the beds are comfortable. The WiFi is good, breakfast is lovey, and the staff is helpful. There is no pool, but the top floor restaurant/lounge offers perfect views of the...

A great place to stay and eat, you must eat one or more dinners from their roof top restaurant, which over looks Acropolis. Great location to all of the sites, nice choices for breakfast and the best staff.

Our stay at the Athens Gate Hotel was fantastic! It was clean and modern and the location was perfect. We were across the street from the Temple of Zeus, within walking distance of the Acropolis, the Parliament building, shops, restaurants, you name it! We were only there for a little over 24 hours, but our location made it so that...

This is our resting point from visiting family & island hopping. The Athens Gate to us is in downtown Athens. Walking distant to metro, Syntagma Square, Parliament and just the beautiful city of Athens. Staff are very friendly, all speak English very well, rooms are clean & spacious. The guest elevator a little tight, but if traveling in Europe, you...

The Athens Gate is a very nice hotel, with a fantastic location overlooking the Acropolis. The rooftop restaurant has a terrific view with great food for breakfast or dinner. The staff were very nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

We were 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...

Staying in Thissio / Makriyanni

Neighbourhood Profile
Thissio / Makriyanni
Named after the well-preserved Thission (ancient temple of Hephaestus), Thissio is blessed with a small wooded park and some less frenetic streets that offer numerous quieter places to stay and eat. Largely pedestrianised Apostolou Pavlou Street runs between the Acropolis and forested Filopappou Hill, well worth climbing for more great panoramas, until it merges with Dionysiou Areopagitou Street. This leads to the up-and-coming area of Makriyanni, whose centrepiece is the magnificent new Acropolis Museum. Opposite the museum is the entrance to the southern slopes of the Acropolis, while the eponymous metro station nearby is at the top of Makriyanni Street, another strip of touristic cafés and restaurants.
