We had breakfast each morning of our stay and the view is georgous! The food was plentiful however the restaurant is very small, expect to bump into people while getting your food and have people bump into you while eating.

Stayed at hotel and had a great Breakfast here in the Morning. Very central with view of acropolis and Temple of Zeus. That's why I proposed and got Engaged to my fiancé. Great memory's! Seen Athens in a whole different light after this.

Hotel guests, expected ordinary breakfast buffet, but this one a pleasant surprise. Lots of variety. Try a fried egg, delicious yogurt with freshly cut up fruit. Carafe of coffee. Variety of cheeses, meats, rolls, juice. And gaze out at the view which is gorgeous. Very satisfying.

When you take in to consideration some of the great local restaurants and cafés in the area, the only thing really going for the Athens Gate Restaurant are the views (which admittedly are stunning). The food is mediocre at best, overpriced and lacking in flavour. We visited for both breakfast and lunch and were distinctly underwhelmed. The seating area around... More

The view over the Acropolis was amazing and it was lovely to see it lit up at night while enjoying a glass of wine. Unfortunately this was the only perk as the food was simply not great. The quality wasn't there and the service was not anything special. Next time I am in Athens I will eat in the Plaka... More

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.
