"Good hotel but not great"
This is a hotel located close to historic sites in Athens. The Acropolis, the Temple of Zeus and the Ancient and Roman Agorae are close by. The hotel staff are very nice and friendly, the lobby is spacious and well appointed and the breakfast area is excellent with good views of the Acropolis. The breakfast selection is very good and there are are many […] restaurants close by. The only down side of this hotel is that it is on a busy street and the rooms are small. I expected from the 5 star rating that the rooms would be much better (and bigger) than what I got. The towels and bathroom appointments were also very unimpressive. It is a good place to spend a few days to explore the historic sites mentioned above or take a tour (which the staff will readily book for you). However, for longer stays, it may be better to find something less hectic near the coast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent location in Athens"
I loved this hotel my husband and I was traveling from New York. The hotel is in the prime location for all major tours and cruise lines to visit the islands. The hotel standard room was not modern nor was the bathroom. I was disappointed in the decor. The roof top restaurant or breakfast was beautiful and amazing.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in the center of everything."
Location is perfect, very close to almost everything. Very beautiful view from rooftop breakfast area. Breakfast was nice, big choice, buffet style. However breakfast area filled up quickly and it was hard to get a table next to the best viewGenuine Expedia guest review
Breakfast was great but other food prices were out of line. Room service coffee was 12.00 with 4.00 tax.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent hotel, near acropolis"
We arrived from a cruise at 9am, checked in right away. Very nice hotel, modern lobby, nice décor in the rooms. Really a 4 1/2 star hotel at a 2 or 3 star price. It's within a 5 or 10 minute walk from the entrance to acropolis, musuems, etc. Great restaurant, although a little pricey.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beautiful hotel, everyone was extremely friendly, the rooftop area is amazing! We enjoyed the view with some drinks during the day and at night to see the Acropolis! The location of this hotel is excellent...we walked everywhere!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel; very close to metro and Acropolis"
We only stayed one night in Athens on the return leg from Santorini. It was very easy to take the metro from the airport to the Acropolis metro station, and this hotel was just a short walk from there. The street down which one must walk to the hotel from the metro station was a bit dark, but it seemed safe enough, given the amount of nearby activity. […] Great rooftop terrace breakfast buffet/restaurant overlooking Temple of Athenian Zeus and with a view of the Acropolis. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent Location and Lobby"
Excellent location and beautiful lobby. The room small. Breakfast very good with a wonderful viewGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location and comfortable room."
We came here for our 10-year anniversary. This hotel is in a perfect location to the major sights of Athens. It's directly across from the Olympian Temple of Zeus and just a couple blocks East of the Acropolis metro stop, just South of the Acropolis. We walked to the Acropolis Museum, Acropolis and Ancient Agora, Monastiraki area, Plaka, ancient Olympic […] stadium, Parliament and Ermou shopping street within 5-20 mins depending. Near the Acropolis metro station are quite a few inexpensive eateries (Crascendo for breakfast and Souvlaki/Gyro place for dinner) that we tried and had fantastic food. The hotel itself is very clean with a wonderful marble foyer and lounge area. We didn't use the pool, but it too looked very inviting. They held our luggage for us upon arrival and departure, and gave us advice on commuting to the hotel and where to dine. However, we did find that it took us nearly 1 hour each way to the Athens airport via the metro (14E for a double person ticket one way) and not the 25 mins the hotel had estimated. Our room was quiet and comfortable with the amenities one needs to have a restful night after a busy day touring. We experienced the rooftop dining one night and it was beautiful. You do pay for the view (24E for two drinks). Would we stay here again - most definitely. No problems and an overall excellent experience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel close to key sites."
The hotel is beautiful and our stay was very pleasant. The Temple of the Olympian Zeus was virtually across the street, and the entrance gate to the Acropolis was about a twenty minute walk. The staff was very helpful, and the free wifi was a plus. Note: the complimentary breakfast buffet was not included with special Expedia pricing, but the hotel […] was a great value anyway.

Fabulous hotel in excellent location...also breakfast on rooftop overlooking temple of Olympian Zeus was world class...we have stayed there before and definitely will again..best value in AthensGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay at the Royal Olympic was fine--comfortable room, great breakfasts up on the roof deck, etc. However, I was traveling with a large group of friends and some of them had issues that were not handled well by the hotel staff; in fact, in a couple of instances the staff/management was surprisingly unaccommodating. I personally did not experience […] this and would stay at this hotel again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to all sights"
Great! Wonderful views from rooftop lounge & restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"CLOSE TO THE PLAKA AND OTHER SIGHTS, RESTAURANTS"
The breakfast buffet on the roof with view of Parthenon was exceptional. The only problem was on checking in, we were told our rooms were upgraded. Our sons were given rooms with multiple beds that were not needed and upon check-out were charged 30 Euros a night extra. This is not a free upgrade and should have been explained upon arrival.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Mixed Bag"
Although the immediate area is not the greatest, the hotel is a short walk to lots of fantastic places - the Acropolis, the original Olympic Stadium, Zeus' Monument, the Parliament Building, the National Gardens, and the Plaka. Overall, it is a beautiful, luxury hotel. However, it does have some very small rooms down dingy corridors. I had one of those […] rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Royal Olympic is a short walking distance from the Acropolis and Plaka, which is full of lively shops and restaurants. The breakfast was very good, served in the rooftop restaurant with a magnificent view - a great start to a day of sightseeing. The room was clean and comfortable. Great location location for a relatively reasonable price! It's perfect […] if you have a limited time in Athens. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful old school luxury hotel"
We loved the style and elegance of this beautifully unkept hotel in the very best and safest location in Athens. It is a close walk to everything to see in Athens, such as The Acropolis, Temple of Olympic Zeus, Ancient Agora, Roman Forum, etc. The Plaka is only a few short blocks away as well, with tons of places to eat, drink and shop. Also it felt […] extremely safe and we never felt in danger in any way and never even saw any pickpocket types of questionable characters of any sort. There is a substantial police presence all over and it is very comforting. The Greek economy depends heavily on tourism, so the police are keeping it very chill for us tourists. My one complaint with the hotel would be the restaurant, where the prices are sky high and one would expect world class service. We waited over a half hour to order and then over an hour for any food while watching others who came in long after us get their food, eat and leave. To top that off when the food finally arrived my husbands steak was all fat and inedible. After bitterly complaining, however, we were comped the meal and given a few extras. It helped but really didn't make up for the lost time and unenjoyable meal. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"very good hotel"
very nice hotel, close the archeological sites (temple of zeus , acropolis ), restaurants and gift stores (all are in the walking distance from the hotel).The staff is nice and professional. The restaurant on the top of the hotel is very nice, clean ,with a good view of the temple of zeus.The food is good and the staff is friendly...Genuine Expedia guest review
"Need to improve a few things."
Overall I was dissappointed in this hotel. Although it is in a good location with views from the terrace bar of the Acropylis and Hadrians Arch ... the bar was closed during the day ??? Also the wifi was terrible which is inexcusable these days as us travellers rely on wifi for everything from getting around to locating restaurants and staying in touch […] with home. + They would not allow me a late check out.

"amazing view of the Parthenon from the terrace"
This was our first time in Athens. The hotel is beautiful. Great location. We arrived early they were very friendly about storing our luggage. We walked to the Parthenon and a local restaurant. Breakfast on the terrace was very good.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient Location to All the Famous Sites"
While the hotel seemed a little run down, everything seemed clean and we were happy it was conveniently located across from the Temple of Zeus, and within 5-10 minutes walk from the Acropolis. If you get a great rate for this hotel and you have never been to Athens before, I would definitely recommend it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel (and the price was right)"
This is a top flight hotel, very well appointed throughout, and spacious, especially for Europe. The price was right, too. The lobby, hallways, and rooms were large and nicely decorated. The staff was friendly, helpful, and efficient. Also, the location was close (walking distance) to the Acropolis. Unfortunately, there were few restaurants or stores […] close by. So, we ate at the rooftop bar. Food & drinks were good but overpriced. The rooftop view of the Acropolis and Parthenon was spectacular, especially at night. Highly recommended.

"Nice hotel with great views..."
Overall, the hotel was nice. What we liked; The location was ideal to see the key historical sites- and for snacks/ beverages. (The small market and pizza place was a life saver). The rooftop restaurant offered great views of the Parthenon and Temple of Olympus Zeus. The room was clean- we had an executive style (royal bedding, drapes and marble in […] room). It was ok- nothing over the top- but nice. I would have liked the pool to have stayed open past 7:30pm. After a day of sight seeing- it would have been nice to have a casual place to relax or just meet up with others. The hotel does not have a casual meeting place- where you feel comfortable reliving your day and sharing laughs. The rooftop lounge was very formal... People chatted like they were out to a premier dinner- as they should because that's the environment. Also, the food was soooooo over priced! Good but soooo over priced for the area and type of food. The staff-blah, other than the doorman from Canada- great energy, personable and welcoming. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

everything about this hotel was great, but for a few simple things lacking in the room...........we did not receive hand towels or wash cloths.........also received only 2 plain drinking glasses. easy to correct but i can't understand why these items have to be pointed out. one more point: the bellman, Manny, was absolutely great in our personal crisis […] - we left out passports in the cab..........bottom line: he got them back for us within one hour. he took charge and calmed us and kept us informed every step of the way.

"Beautiful hotel/ disappointing blow dryer"
The lobby, public areas and roof top restaurant are beautiful. Free breakfast was varied and yummy. Dinner was pricey, but the incredible view of both the Acropolis and Temple of Zeus, lighted up at night, made it worth it. Great location, friendly, helpful staff, incredible value for the money.
