Am worried I am becoming over reliant on Trip Advisor to plan for my trips... well, again, I was not disappointed ;-)
Athens Gate hotel is a great place: in short, location is perfect, opposite Temple of Zeus, closing to Acropolis, metro station and Plaka area. Apparently hotel was renovated in 2007, except for the lift which is a bit outdated, the rest is new. Room is great, see through bathroom with all new appliances, flat TV with news channels in many languages (no movie channels though). Ours was overlooking temple of Zeus, nice view (and a balcony) but super noisy on Syngrou avenue. 2 computers with free access in the lobby, that's very convenient. Staff are friendly and efficient. No specific comment on the breakfast. For dinner though, I found the restaurant a bit pricey compared to regular restaurants in the area.
In short, very good hotel, I would definitely return.
