In the hotel restaurant on the 7th floor you can see Acropolis and Temple of Olympian Zeus. I recommend you to have dinner there so the combination of the views and the lighting in the restaurant are mixed in a romantic atmosphere. The waiters are super polite and ready to serve. With regards to the room I lived in...the bed...

I had a great experience from check-in through check-out at this lovely, well-located hotel. The staff were helpful; facilities immaculate; the location ideal; and the breakfast buffet was amazing. I particularly loved sitting in the rooftop bar looking out at the Acropolis and the park by night, and the beautiful view greeting you upon walking in for breakfast. My only...

We stayed in the hotel for 3 nights, and overall the hotel is fine but you normally expect more from a 5-star hotel. No robes, few towels, no coffee in the room, no spa/fitness area even though advertised on the website. Bathroom was not very fresh, old-style hairdryer that takes ages to dry hair. On the positive side: close to...

The hotel is good enough, but there is no bottled water in the rooms. One should buy it in the bar or in the nearest shop. A marvelous view from the restaurant. The biggest minus- cockroaches in the room! Luckily, we noticed them only on the day of leave, but still this spoiled our mood a lot. The management should...

This is not a 5 star hotel, although for this price it shouldn't be expected. The location is its main selling point, close to the Parthenon and walkable distance to the touristy centre with restaurants and cafes. Okay rooms and bathrooms, there is also a pool available.

On our last day in Athens, we stayed at an elegant hotel called “Royal Olympic”. A copy of the “Charioteer” of Delphi stared at the tourist in the lobby. It looked like the original in the Delphi Museum. We had a suite of room that made you want to stay indoors. Oil paintings of Greece adorned the halls. The big...

Had to attend a conference at Athens. The conference provided an excellent rate at the Royal Olympic Hotel. The employees are very hospital, smiling & always helpful. My room facing Temple of Olympian what a spectacular view day & night you stay for hours staring from the. My room was spacious a bit old fashioned but had all essentials. The...
