spent only one night at Athens Gate Hotel on 9October2011 prior to boarding cruise ship. we found this hotel on our own, using TripAdvisor, and all the positive reviews are spot on. the room was comfortable and we appreciated the ability to open the door to balcony to let in fresh air without worrying the rain would also pour into the room. the hotel fronts a multi-lane thoroughfare and complaints of noise can be chalked up to its location in a major city and not a small village.

our trip offered a pre-cruise hotel at a 5-star property but the location of Athens Gate is far better situated. anything else seems immaterial. the breakfast buffet was plentiful and had fresh croissants, perfect poached eggs, fruit, and decent coffee. no caviar or champagne, but we also didn't pay for those sort of offerings either.

we arrived at Athens Gate approximately five hours later than anticipated despite clear weather and Aegean Airlines plane at the gate at Heathrow. air traffic controllers in Athens decided to "slow down" air traffic at their whim. it was well after 10pm when we pulled up to the hotel and we were greeted cheerfully and a room with a view was waiting. the bar on the top floor was still open and the beer was amazingly delicious.

our cab ride to the cruise ship and eventual boarding was fraught with impassable streets and inept dock workers. Athens does not work at the public level.

however, if you should find yourself in Athens, we would recommend the Athens Gate without reservation.

Room Tip: the Temple of Zeus view is stunning. assume the Acropolis view is quieter. both are fully visible from the roof terrace where breakfast is served.

I stayed at the Athens Gate Hotel in May 2011 for both business and pleasure. The hotel rooms are spacious and comfortable. I upgraded for a view of the Temple of Zeus. You cannot beat the location (close to the Acropolis, Platka, restaurants and plenty of tourist sites). The Metro is only a 3 minute walk away. A more detailed review is on my website at http://internationaltravelchick.com/2011/12/22/nikkis-nest-athens-gate-hotel-athens-greece/

We stayed at the hotel in October 2011. We were traveling with two children, aged 6 and 9 and we got adjoining rooms. The hotel was wonderful. Excellent service, excellent views and great food. The location is perfect to see the historical sites and to enjoy the resturants in the Plaka.
The hotel also set was able to set up a day trip to some of the nearby Greek Islands. Those islands really are as beautiful as people say.

Best bed I have slept in in ages! So comfortable - room was great and bathroom was perfect. We were upgraded to an Acropolis view room - such a bonus - but the view from the restaurant for the wonderful breakfast was also awesome. Staff so friendly and helpful and we loved the location too - very close to a nice walk through Plaka to Monastiraki. Everything perfect apart from one small complaint..... Air con/heat was controlled centrally by the hotel and even though it wasn't too warm outside I was too hot and stuffy all night. The window only opened a fraction and no way to secure it, so it banged in the wind, meaning we couldn't leave it open all night. Otherwise FABULOUS. Made our stay in an otherwise very run down, sad downturn times, Athens actually pretty special.

Comfortable, clean hotel. Good location, next to the Plaka and walking distance from other tourist spots. Nothing more to ask for. Highly recommend staying at this hotel.
