The hotel is located 7mins walk from the metro, hence great for travelling around. Plaka with great cafes and souvenir shops are also 10mins away, perfect place for lunch & dinner. Hotel staffs are also very welcoming and friendly. Room is slightly small , if you are carrying 2 luggages you might find it hard to walk around after placing...

This hotel offered friendly service, good clean rooms and excellent views from the roof top restaurant and some rooms.I was lucky to have a balcony overlooking the front of the hotel but enjoyed eating breakfast and having coffee with the views of the Accropolis..

We stayed here for three days and were thrilled with its proximity to all the attractions. The views from the rooftop restaurant and rooms were breathtaking, especially at night. We stayed in a basic room, which was a bit small but included breakfast. The selection at breakfast was great and the staff went above and beyond to accommodate a severe...

You couldn't really ask for a better location or view from the hotel. The rooftop restaurant is the best place to see both the acropolis and The Temple of Olympian Zeus. The rooms are wonderful, clean and well kept. I would very much recommend staying here!

This is a modern hotel located across from Athens Gate at the edge of the Plaka. The rooms are modern with everything you need. There is a roof-top bar/restaurant with amazing views of the Acropolis. This is the best located hotel to see the historical sights of Athens within walking distance!

I stayed a week in this old classic hotel. Perfect service. The room was a bit small for my taste but I could relax after stressful day on the roof swimming pool with incredible view to the Acropolis and finished with great Greek meal.

This hotel is in a very convenient location in the heart of the city. I only spent one night, but people have been very helpful and kind and the Ron was clean. Nice breakfast. I'd love to go back again.

Athens Gate is a good hotel; clean rooms with wooden floors, mineral water offered etc. The view from the roof top restaurant, where also the breakfast is taken, is unique. Breakfast is good with Greek specialities and good coffee. Staff is friendly and helpful. On the downside, it can be a bit noisy with the heavy traffic in the main...

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.
