Great location, great view from top floor, great breakfast. The rooms very old and the carpet was nasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Spent several days at the Royal Olympic on both ends of our tour to Greece. Hotel is in prime location...easy to Acropolis, Plaka and most major sites in Athens. Hotel terrace (for breakfast buffet/dinner) probably has the best view of the Acropolis and the Temple of Olympic Zeus in Athens. Food is pricey but good...the view is worth it. Room was clean […] but not very spacious. Hotel amenities were good. Staff at the front dest is mostly friendly but sometimes snooty (we found that unusual as most of the Greeks we met were super friendly and accomodating). Only bad thing about the hotel...the pool...disgusting...always looked cloudy. It needs to be examined and fixed...does not fit in with the rest of the well manicured hotel.

"great for a few days stay in Athens"
Beautiful roof top breakfast and good pool. Location is primo. Just very expensive but to be expected in this location. Stayed 3 nights and would again. Try the Chinese restaurant right next door for great food although no ambience.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful view of the temple of zeus rooms old"
rooms are old and shabby ac is not adequate breakfast very expensive people pleasant enoughGenuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing location and Roof Deck"
You cannot beat the location with a perfect view of the Acropolis and surrounding monuments right next to Plaka for fun cafes and shopping. The rooftop is stunning. Even if you do not stay here, go for the sunset views. The rooms were standard and the pool area was lovely but also small. For the value, I would stay here again any time.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location + Find"
Perfect location if you're trying to do all the touristy things in Athens. Very easy to get around. The staff and accommodations were wonderful. The rooftop restaurant had a great view of the Acropolis at night and terrific food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A great view of the Acropolis"
We spent four days in the hotel over a week of Greece travel. Good value for a five star hotel. Pleasant staff and luxury surroundings.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
An excellent hotel in a prime location. This was the second time we stayed in the Royal Olympic in the past year and were extremely pleased in every respect. We would look forward to doing so again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quite disappointed with this hotel - was supposed to be best among 4 I stayed in Europe, but fell short of expectations. At first, rooms looked clean but by the end I was very disappointed. Here is my list: (1) Room was old & needed renovation. There was a strong musty smell & found traces of mold in shower area ceiling. (2) Bathroom fittings are quite […] old, flush didnt work well & we needed to flush several times. At one point flush got stuck & auto-flushed for 5 mins. Very very annoying. (3) AC didnt work. Just blows air doesnt cool. First night we had window open so we fell asleep, but second night it was too hot even with window open and we could not sleep. Didnt bother complaining because I already complained on other issues. (4) The breakfast was not good - bread was not fresh and very old toaster did not work. Staff were too busy running around to care & after repeated requests, I was forced to go without toasting my bread. The fruit and vegetables did not seem fresh either. I skipped the second day breakfast and ate out. (3) WiFi doesnt work in room, cannot even find network and staff couldnt comprehend this. WiFi only works in common areas like lobby/pool & was decent speed. Positives: Hotel looks swanky as you enter, reception/lobby very ornate and nicely done. Staff at front desk courteous and nice but did not solve my problems. Location is awesome. Can walk to Plaka in 5 mins & get good food+shopping. Acropolis is 10 mins by walk. Very convenient location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A GEM IN ATHENS"
We stayed here both arriving in Greece and 2 weeks later before we flew out. It is an elegant hotel with lovely comfortable rooms and a beautiful pool. the best view in the city from the roof top bar/restaurant of both the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. On the same block at the #5 stop of the Hop-on-Hop-Off bus for convenience. Walk 2 blocks to the Plaka […] for wonderful dining, shopping and sites. All at a very good price Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice hotel in a good area. Walking distance to Acropolis, Acropolis museum and The Plaka area. Tons of nice restaurants nearby. The hotel itself was really nice and spacious and the pool was a definite plus in the very hot weather. The breakfast was served at the rooftop terrrase with an amazing view of The Acropolis and The temple of Zeus. Also […] enjoyed a cocktail at the same terrace at night. Amazing!

"Great view, great price, decent facilities"
AWESOME Breakfast, AMAZING view, excellent breakfast staff, average/unimpressive bar and front desk staff. Alwayss felt like i was walking into a palace! awesome lobby! Bathroom always smelled bad, from vent?? Bare walls, average/in impressive rooms. I would go for the cheap price, and view. But I wouldn't stay for the staff or rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, incredible view!"
Loved the hotel. Had a gorgeous room overlooking the Temple of Zeus. It was a free upgrade and it was sweet! Only issue was not knowing the buffet breakfast was NOT included with our room cost until we had half filled plates. Too late to leave and the cost was much more than we intended to pay for breakfast, probably even more than a very nice dinner. […] We certainly ate our fill after learning the price of that meal!

"Couldn't Get Better"
The pictures of this place don't do it justice! The view from the roof restaurant is unbeatable; same with the bar and lounge areas - simply outstanding. The hotel is also just a short walk to all of the must-see sights in Athens.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel overall."
Overall, it was fine. Nice lobby, friendly staff. BUT, even though they say they have air conditioning, it was HOT in the rooms. We had two rooms and talked to other hotel guests as well. No one had a cool room. It was so hot that it was difficult to sleep and we didn't want to spend any more time in the room than necessary. We reported it to the front […] desk but nothing changed. Other guests said the same. We would not stay there again unless visiting in the winter. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel with Great Location"
This hotel was very comfortable and conveniently located within walking distance of the Acropolis and Plaka neighborhood. Be sure to eat at their rooftop restaurant which was phenomenal and had an outstanding view of the Parthenon lit up at night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Prime location - beautiful view for breakfast area"
I loved it!We were able to walk to every main attraction in Athens and the view from the rooftop lounge was truly breathtaking - highly recommend!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great hotel with a great view. Our only complaints are that the food was not very good and room service was incredibly expensive. We would recommend it for the location alone.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect location, imperfect property"
On the map, and from photos, this property seems idyllic. The views are sweeping and magnificent, and the lobby lovely. The reality is that it more closely resembles a stationary, low budget, cruise ship. The rooms are awash in European "trippers" and tourists, and the dining facility (with its subpar food) is an enormous buffet style experience with […] hundreds dining en masse. The rooms are minimal and sterile. Hardly fitting for the country of Poseidon, Zeus and Athena! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good walking hotel"
Great location for walking to the Acropolis and the Plaka for shopping and dining. View from the restaurant of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus (right across the street) and awe-inspiring.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Perfect hotel in Athens"
We arrived at 9am, and the concierge (Dmtiri) was beyond accommodating, finding us a room much earlier than the 3p checkin time. Absolutely perfect location. Two minute walk to everything in Athens. Rooftop overlooking the Temple of Zeus and Acropolis. Best views you could imagine. Spent an afternoon laying out by the gorgeous pool drinking a great […] Greek white wine. Heaven, from start to finish. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Acropolis, Temple of Zeus, and Plaka"
Great location. Panoramic Room is a must!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel close to the acropolis"
This hotel is located just a few blocks away from the acropolis and at walking distance from Plaka (about 10 min walk). The highlight of this hotel is the restaurant's view, one of the best of the city. You get to see both the Parthenon and the Temple of Zeus, which are illuminated at night. The restaurant's food is overpriced, and it's just OK, but […] you can't beat the view. Next to the restaurant, there is a small bar where you can a drink and enjoy the view if you don't want to pay ~30 euros per course. There are tons of shops and restaurants nearby, not to mention that you can also walk to the metro station. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent Location with AMAZING views!"
Superior quality hotel with the most amazing views from the restaurant of the Parthenon, Acropolis and Temple of Zeus! You can spend the evening sipping on cocktails and just marvelling at the most amazing view - so close is the Temple of Zeus you feel you could reach out and touch it! Very comfortable room - and the hotel is extremely high quality […] for the price paid. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location, small rooms"
It was definitely a nice hotel, but the rooms are in need of updates and are rather small (not what you would expect from a 5 star hotel). I was generally pleased with our stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not worth the money"
This hotel is OK, but I would not stay there again because there are other hotels in Athens that offer a better experience and are even more convenient to Plaka. The view from the terrace was beautiful, but the buildings between the Acropolis and the hotel's terrace did not help the "WOW" factor for me. It is probably due to my high expectations resulted […] from another experience in a terrace hotel in Athens in the past. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"An elegant and convenient hotel"
Royal Olympic far exceeded our expectations. It is a very elegant and well-maintained hotel, with overall excellent service. It is within walking distnace of the Acropilis museum, Hadrian's Arc h and the Plaka. The Roof Garden restaurant provided a great panoramic view ofthe Acropolis. The quality of the "international" (not Greek) cuisine dinner was […] somewhat disappointing and and the adjoining bar service was not very friendly or efficient. Overall, this was a wonderful hotel and we will stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location & gorgeous hotel!"
We really enjoyed staying at Royal Olympic. The location was perfect for seeing all the main sights conveniently in Athens. The hotel staff was lovely, the breakfast bar was plentiful, and the hotel was well kept and clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Nice staff, hotel well maintained. The views were magnificent. Every morning they bring breakfast to your room between 7:30 and 10 am. Finding the hotel is kind of tricky but very worth it, the rooms are huge.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice room but nowhere to put your things. had to live out of my suit case. No drawers to keep anything in. otherwise it was nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved everything about this hotel. Our room was excellent. The bathroom was huge. The bathtub was huge. The location to the Plaka was amazing (5 minute walk up the street). We were 2 minutes from the Temple of Zeus. The breakfast views were outstanding of the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus. The breakfast buffet was the best I'd had in all of Greece, […] even the pricier hotels. It is a 5 minute walk from the Acropolis train stop. Is doable even with luggage. Highly recommend this hotel. will stay again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good for Ghost Writers."
The pool was closed, the personal were weird, the housekeeper took our TV control away and also had put some plastic litter inside my drawer. I lost a earing (in the room). I felt in more danger that in my own Country, that is Brazil. I don't recomend. The localization is soberb but there are other options in the neighbourhood. Seemed a ghost hotel.

"Review Royal Olympic Hotel"
If you are in Athens for the ruins and sites, this is by far the best hotel to stay in. It is centrally located to all the pertinent sites and easily accessibly to the airport, Metro, and cabs. This was my second stay. It has been updated since my last stay and it is very modern and clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. Rates are fair. The neighborhood […] is safe and it has a spectacular view of the Temple of Zeus and the Entire city from the roof restaurant and bar. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"View from dining/breakfast room to die for"
Stayed 4 nights, including a weekend, in January 2014 with my wife. Thoroughly enjoyed it. We were upgraded but the window in the room would not close. The porter quickly brought new keys and moved our luggage to the new room which was high quality and comfortable. We would certainly stay there again and not bother to evaluate alternatives. Compared […] to other European cities, Athens hotels are remarkably cheap, which may reflect the season and the current state of the Greek economy. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Close to Everything!"
You couldn't ask for a closer to all the sites, across the street from the temple of Zeus, down the road from the Acropolis and Museum, a short walk to the flea market. The staff was great and the hotel was clean.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was excellent, located just across from the Temple of Zeus. The lobby was grand, 5-star like, but I did not find the room to be outstanding (From a North American standard). Everything essential was provided, comfortable and clean rooms. The rooftop restaurant is quite reasonably priced with a nice view of the Acropolis. The service in […] the restaurant was also excellent (albeit it was very quiet during the Christmas days we were there). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Good hotel - thin walls"
The Royal Olympic was the "posh" hotel that we chose for our last night in Athens. While the lobby and room were absolutely gorgeous, the big drawback was that the walls were pretty darn thin. We were able to hear everything going on next door and they were able to hear everything going on in our room. Other than that awkwardness, the room was awesome […] and the bed was the comfiest that we experienced throughout the entire trip. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
